Slimaluma™ is a dietary supplement designed to manage obesity through the suppression of hunger. It is created by using an extract of Caralluma Fimbriatia obtained using a patented process developed by Gencor Pacific, the manufacturer of Slimaluma™. In double blind tests conducted in Los Angeles, California, and in India, the use of the supplement led to significant decreases in body fat and body weight.
The active ingredient in Slimaluma™, Caralluma Fimbriatia, is a plant which is commonly cultivated in India. The plant, known as a natural appetite suppressant, is commonly grown as a vegetable. Upon harvesting, the plant is usually cooked or preserved — like a pickle — for later use. Indian medical experts have been unable to find any toxins in the plant which could limit its use. Caralluma Fimbriatia used to manufacture Slimaluma™ are grown organically gaining the supplement its USDA organic certification in the United States.
Slimaluma™ acts as a simple appetite suppressant by sending signals to the brain triggering a sensation of fullness. Once the supplement goes into effect, it can help to significantly decrease the number of calories consumed daily. It also works to prevent the production of Co-Enzyme A, the enzyme responsible for fat production, while encouraging the growth of lean muscle.
The supplement is meant to be taken 30 minutes prior to each meal in order to achieve maximum results. While diet and exercise are not required, a diet that does not exceed 2,000 calories is recommended. Individuals who participated in the Slimaluma™ research study complained of mild side effects, including constipation and flatulence, which ended shortly after trials were completed.
During the two research studies conducted to test Slimaluma™, no participants complained of any serious side effects. The worst side effects noted were bloating, which led to two participants leaving the study prior to its completion. The sleeplessness, nervousness, or overall discomfort commonly attributed to dietary supplements and weight loss pills were not reported. In fact, some participants noticed an increase in overall energy while taking it.
If an individual is currently under the care of a physician for serious medical problems, the attending physician should be consulted prior to taking the supplement. Women who are currently nursing, pregnant, or planning to become pregnant should also consult a physician before taking Slimaluma™. Taking a multivitamin when using the supplement should also be considered. It is not unusual for dietary supplements that block fat production to prevent the absorption of certain vitamins.
