This article is one of the most popular on BrightonYourHealth. Readers, have you tried this product? Does it work for you? Doesn’t work? Let me know your feedback, very interested in what you have to say! I am not against using natural medications for weight loss, but I cannot sit back and let people buy weight loss products that do not work. If you are interested in other health articles do not hesitate to check out what is on the site.
Slimaluma is the name for a new appetite suppressant extracted from an Indian plant called Caralluma fibriata. Slimaluma, interestingly named perhaps for its anticipated properties of weight loss is manufactured by Gencor Pacific Inc. Have you heard of it? Here is the web link to the company manufacturing the product. Unfortunately, Slimaluma does not live up to its reported hunger suppressing and weight loss claims that the manufacturer wishes you to believe.
I have seen this product sold on websites and promoted as a new appetite suppressant. It is claimed that Slimaluma works in two ways: by blocking fat accumulation and by acting on areas in the brain that control satiety. BE CAREFUL! First any product that supposedly works by altering brain function. People need to cautious when taking anything that directly affects the brain. Secondly, guess what…it seems that this product doesn’t really live up to what it proclaims to do anyway. Read on..
Gencor Pacific Inc. had recently applied to the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) to ask that they have the right to publish health claims for their product Slimaluma. In Europe, any food or food supplement cannot claim to have health benefits that are not scientifically proven. The EFSA is an organization that investigates these health claims using scientific experts from the field. Gencor Pacific Inc. applied with the EFSA to promote Slimaluma as a supplement to decrease appetite, reduce body fat, reduce caloric intake, lose weight, and decrease waist circumference. Each of those 5 claims was rejected by the EFSA. In citing their decision, the EFSA concluded that the investigational studies on Slimaluma did not demonstrate any proven effect on any of these claims. The authority did say, however, that Slimaluma taken for 60 days may show some benefit in appetite suppression, but this suppression did not lead to changes in the participants food intake.
Be aware that some weight loss products can advertise claims that are not always warranted. This can give you false hopes with attempts to lose weight. Everyone knows that the weight loss industry is a big market; and there are no quick fixes or easy solutions with losing weight. Slimaluma just doesn’t seem to meet what it is proposing: helping you to lose weight. If you have used this product, I would be interested in your opinion! Please leave me a comment or contact me by email. And as always, thanks for reading.
