    Caralluma fimbriata is an edible cactus that grows in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and India. It has been traditionally used for centuries by Indigenous hunters to suppress hunger and appetite and improve stamina. The best available evidence still suggests that a healthy lifestyle which includes reduced calorie intake and increased physical activity levels is our best weapon for losing fat keeping it off. Caralluma fimbriata may play a role in facilitating this process. The studies that have been conducted utilizing n extract from this cactus show promise.

    How does it work?
    Understanding the appetite control mechanisms: A region of the brain known as the Hypothalamus and at its base, the Pituitary gland is central to the appetite control mechanism. It has been established that appetite is modulating by several different hormonal pathways that control either orexigenic (appetite stimulation) or anorexogenic (appetite suppression).
    The chart below shws ome of the different polypeptides (neuropeptides) produced by the body and identified by researchers that influence the regulation of appetite.

    Orexigenic Neuropeptides (Appetite Stimulating)

    - Agouti-related protein (AgRP)
    - Gherelin
    - Neuropeptide Y (NPY)
    - Fibroblast Groth Factor 19 (FGF 19)

    Anorexigenic Neuropeptides (Appetite suppressing)

    - Leptin (produced in fat cells)
    - Cholecystokinin (CCK)
    - Incretins
    - Peptides YY

    A review of the scientific literature reveals that the genus Caralluma contains many glycosidic (flavones glycosides, flavones, magastigmane glycosides) compounds. In Caralluma extract (CE) researches have identified a particular form - Pregnance glycosides as one of the major constituents. In studies from other plant species, Pregnance glycosides appear to modulate food intake (suppress appetite) by decreasing the activity of one or more of the orexigenic neuropeptides (See the chart above).

    About Irvingia Gabonensis :

    Irvingia Gabonensis (African Mango) is a tree that growa in the Eastern Central African states. An extract of the fruit seed has been and is currently being studied for its benefits in supporting leptin sensitivity (one of the anorexigenic neuropeptides), and weight loss management.

    How does it works: Irvingia gabonensis (African Mango) is high in soluble fiber which is an accepted lipid-lowering supplement in conjunction with a normal diet and moderate exercise in overweight individuals. It has also shown the ability to help slow the rate o carbohydrate absorption as well as having a potential starch blocking effect. Fat cells (adipocytes) secrete a hormone called leptin that tells our brain ( in the hypothalamus) we have eaten enough. Leptin can also facilitate the breakdown of stored triglycerides in our adipocytes (fat cells) via the process of lipolysis (the breakdown of fats). Heavy individuals have startlingly high blood levels of leptin, indicating that their cells have become resistant to the leptin that is supposed to prevent them from putting on so many fat pounds.
    African Mango has demonstrated beneficial effects upon leptin blood levels, followed by eight loss and inches off the weistline.
