Caralluma Fimbriata is a certain species of the Caralluma genus that appears to have historical usage as a famine food, appetite suppressant, and thirst quencher when the vegetables are boiled and salted. Research is preliminary, but seems to validate these claims.
Caralluma Fimbriata is most often used for
Note that Caralluma Fimbriata is also known as:
- Slimaluma (Brand Name)
Currently, the only human study used 1,000mg of a 14:1 concentrated extract (equivalent to 14g of the plant in dry weight). This dose appeared to be effective somewhat, and is currently the only lead for what oral dosage of supplementation is needed.
Caralluma fimbriata appears to require up to a month or so to work for appetite suppression.
