PLANT EXTRACTS WITH APPETITE SUPPRESSING PROPERTIES FOR BODY WEIGHT CONTROL

A systematic review of double blind randomized controlled clinical trials conducted in late 2012 revealed mostly inconclusive evidence that plant extracts are effective in reducing body weight through appetite suppression. However there were three exceptions

Caralluma fimbriata extract and a combination supplement containing Garcinia cambogia plus Gymnema sylvestre.

Carallumuna fibriata – traditionally used as an appetite suppressant

Garcinia cambogia – helps prevent conversion of dietary carbohydrates to adipose tissue

Gymnema sylvestra – helps reduce the cravings for carbohydrates.
