HB&S Caralluma Fimbriata is a dietary supplement that claims to be an appetite suppressant that fights fat storage and supports weight management. This product is free of stimulants and is manufactured by HB&S Solutions.
When this review was written, the official product page for HB&S Caralluma Fimbriata seemed more interested in providing consumers with advice on which of their other products would work best with this supplement instead of providing detailed information about the product, including studies regarding its efficacy. This immediately draws the integrity of this dietary supplement into question.
Be that as it may, each serving size (2 vegetarian capsules) contains 1200 mg of Caralluma Fimbriata. The suggested use is to take 2 capsules once daily. For optimal results, it is recommended for users to take the capsules 20 – 30 minutes before a meal with an 8oz. glass of water or as they have been directed by their healthcare professional.
It is believed that caralluma fibriata can decrease appetite. More specifically, the plant is a cactus that originated in India. Traditionally, Indian tribes chewed chunks of the plant to prevent them from feeling hunger during long hunts. That being said, there is insufficient evidence that taking caralluma fimbriata can aid with weight loss and obesity.
Although some studies have found that taking the supplement for 60 days could decrease waistline, fat intake and feelings of hunger, overall it does not seem to lower weight, BMI (body mass index), hip measurements or body fat. More evidence is required before the effectiveness of this herb can be determined for weight management.
In other words, even if taking HB&S Caralluma Fimbriata may cause you to feel less hungry, this doesn’t mean that this will lead to weight loss.
As for side effects, most people seem to be able to take caralluma fimbriata without suffering adverse effects. That being said, the herb is not without unpleasant side effects. The most common negative reactions associated with it include: stomach upset, stomach pain, constipation, and gas. If such effects are experienced, it is not uncommon for them to go away after a week of use.
For the most part, the average healthy adult shouldn’t have a problem taking caralluma fimbriata. That being said, if you have an existing health condition, are pregnant or nursing, or are taking medications, it is a good idea to speak with your health care provider before taking SB&H Caralluma Fimbriata.
