Dragon Herbs Caralluma
Caralluma is a very useful herbal supplement for those who need to regulate their metabolism and balance their appetites.
Caralluma fimbriata is a succulent, edible cactus that grows across India. It has been in use in India for centuries as a vegetable and famine food. The cactus is used by the labor class in South India to enhance endurance and suppress appetite.
Dragon Herb’s Caralluma is manufactured by a unique process which ensures that there is no chemical alteration to any of the key constituents of the herb. The standardized extract of Caralluma fimbriata was has been extensively studied for its use in appetite suppression leading to weight support.
Dragon Herb’s Caralluma has historically been used as an appetite suppressant
Indian tribesmen are known to chew chunks of Caralluma for energy and to suppress hunger when on a day's hunt.
When we eat, the nerves from the stomach send a signal to the hypothalamus in the brain. This is the part of the brain that controls appetite. When the stomach is full, the hypothalamus signals the brain to stop eating. When a person is hungry, the hypothalamus sends a signal to the brain that food is needed.
Dragon Herb’s Caralluma inhibits this hunger sensory mechanism of the hypothalamus. The Pregnane Glycosides contained in Dragon Herb’s Caralluma may interfere with the signaling mechanism and create a signal on its own, seeming to fool the brain into thinking that the stomach is full, even when the person has not eaten.
Dragon Herb’s Caralluma has also been shown to promote fat metabolism
Caralluma has been shown in controlled clinical trials to help participants to feel more energetic and gain lean muscle mass while burning fat.
This is because Dragon Herb’s Caralluma inhibits fat synthesis by blocking the formation of Acetyl Co-Enzyme A and Malonyl Co-Enzyme A, which are the building blocks of fat synthesis. Dragon Herb’s Caralluma also increases burning of fat by the body. This makes more energy available to the body and makes the person more active and lively. It's a well known fact the muscle cells burn more calories than fat cells. So when more energy is available to the body, muscle cells burn energy faster. Muscle cells are heavier than fat cells but they are also denser than fat cells. So they occupy less space and consequently the person appears more compact and trimmer, compared to before.
How does Dragon Herb’s Caralluma compare with Hoodia?
Genuine Hoodia, from South Africa, can be a useful appetite suppressant. But it has been widely reported that most of the Hoodia being marketed in America is not the original, genuine Hoodia. Secondly, Hoodia plays no role in the promotion of fat loss and weight support – functions that Dragon Herb’s Caralluma have been shown to perform. So, while Hoodia may reduce appetite (if you’re lucky enough to buy a brand with real Hoodia), it may not actually contribute to weight support because a loss of appetite alone is not necessarily sufficient to cause a human to stop eating excessively.
Dragon Herb’s Caralluma is a proprietary standardized extract of Caralluma fimbriata, the authentic herb used for centuries in India. Caralluma fimbriata is the only “caralluma” proven-effective at promoting weight management. Dragon Herb’s Caralluma is a “whole herb extract” that contains all the essential constituents of the whole herb, ensuring that the full benefits of the herb are delivered as a concentrated extract.
Dragon Herb’s Caralluma should be used as part of a complete program
If you are consuming Dragon Herb’s Caralluma for the purposes of weight management, it should be consumed as part of a broad health program, which would include sufficient exercise, reduced calorie intake, consumption of a well balanced diet loaded with vegetables, fruits, antioxidants, sea vegetables, low-fat protein sources, whole grains, legumes, etc.
