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.
