Caralluma Fimbriata - How It Helps With Weight Loss
Caralluma Fimbriata contains pregnane glycosides which are thought to block the function of citrate lyase. By inhibiting this enzyme, Caralluma Fimbriata extract blocks the formation of fat in the body.
Further, Caralluma Fimbriata weight loss products like Caralluma Active also blocks one more enzyme labeled Malonyl Coenzyme A. By also blocking this enzyme, fat formation is further blocked and our bodies are forced to burn its fat reserves resulting in weight loss.
This accelerates the rate of fat loss by the body.
Caralluma is thought to act in another way also. Controlled clinical tests on Caralluma fimbriata extract distinctly demonstrate its capacity to control hunger.
So, Caralluma extract is thought to have an activity on the hunger control mechanism of the brain.
When we eat food, nerves from the belly send a signal to the hypothalamus in the brain. This is the part of the brain that controls hunger. When the stomach is full, the hypothalamus signals the brain to cease eating becuase we feel satiated. When a person is hungry, the hypothalamus sends a signal to the brain that food is needed.
Conversely, by playing with the signal or by synthesizing a signal on its own, weight loss aids like Caralluma Active that contain 100% Caralluma fimbriata extract seem to fool the brain into thinking that the stomach is indeed full, even if the person has not eaten anything.
This is how hunger suppression occurs...
Caralluma fimbriata in diet supplements like CarallumaB Active have been clinically shown to suppress hunger and prevent hunger pangs in patients. It is felt that the pregnane glycosides in Caralluma fimbriata inhibit the hunger sensory mechanism of the hypothalamus.
Generation of lean muscle mass...
The number one reason why most weight-loss plans don't work is that the person constantly feels lifeless and worn-out after losing weight. This makes the person go back to her old eating habits and resulting in a rebound weight gain.
Patients on Caralluma extract however, report feeling more dynamic and have added lean muscle mass, while eliminating fat.
The reason for this is that Caralluma not only inhibits fat synthesis as stated above, it also increases the burning of fat. This makes additional energy accessible to the body and makes the person more alive and enthusiastic.
It is a well-known fact that muscle cells burn more calories than fat cells. So, when more energy is accessible to the body, our muscle cells burn energy faster. This results in fat cells shrinking in size and muscle becomes stronger. Muscle cells are heavier than fat cells, but they are denser than fat cells. So, they occupy less space and the person looks trim and compact, as compared to before.
Patients on Caralluma based products such as Caralluma Active have definitely shown major decrease in arm circumference and waist circumference, along with losing fat.
Thus, by acting on different levels in the body's biochemical processes and brain function, Caralluma fimbriata works as an effective hunger suppressant and potent weight-loss agent.
