Reviews for Caralluma fimbriata supplements are available on WebMD and Diet Spotlight as of 2015. Caralluma fimbriata is a plant native to India that may have appetite-suppressant properties, notes Examine.
Caralluma supplement reviews on WebMD are primarily negative as of 2015. Reviewers on WebMD are required to rate the product for its effectiveness and ease of use, as well as their personal satisfaction. Numerous reviews on this website give Caralluma the lowest available rating for effectiveness and satisfaction. Some of the same reviews give the product a high rating for ease of use, indicating that while the product is easy to administer, it does not provide the desired effects.
It should be noted that while Caralluma is marketed as a weight loss supplement, there is currently no scientific evidence that it causes weight loss, notes Examine. Previous studies have demonstrated that Caralluma is likely to be somewhat effective at suppressing appetite, but only after regular use over a prolonged period. A decrease in feelings of hunger and overall calorie intake may be seen after taking Caralluma for 60 consecutive days, notes WebMD.
The review of the product on Diet Spotlight is similar. This review cites the large number of existing customer reviews that indicate that the product does not support weight loss. It also indicates that there has as yet been insufficient research conducted into the effects of Caralluma on weight and appetite.
