Natural Appetite Suppressants

Considering the whirlwind that we are caught up in the 21st century, scooping out time from our busy schedule and devoting it to workout rigorously seems a little difficult. However, when it comes to staying fit and healthy, there can be no room for compromise whatsoever! Therefore, we have a solution and that is natural appetite suppressants. As the name itself suggests, they are derived from 100% natural sources and work either by reducing your appetite or by increasing the number of calories you burn in a day. In this article, we will be shedding light particularly on three appetite suppressant pills that work, namely, Caralluma Fimbriata, Griffonia simplicifolia and Garcinia cambogia.

Caralluma Fimbriata

Caralluma Fimbriata is essentially a herb that has proven helpful in curtailing appetite and improving endurance. Physicians are of the opinion that if this herb is consumed in moderation, it can trigger the production of serotonin; a hormone that is associated with the decrease of carb intake, as well as the appetite. Several studies have confirmed that if Caralluma Fimbriata's supplementation is coupled with some dietary changes and optimal physical activities, it can potentially control the central obesity, which happens to be the catalysing factor of metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome, on the other hand, is responsible for promoting several health issues like diabetes, heart disease, stroke and the like. Other researches have confirmed that C. Fimbriata aided compulsive overeating among adolescents and children detected with the Parder-Willi syndrome (PWS).

The standard dosage of the best Caralluma Fimbriata supplement is set at about 1,000mg per day and people who abided by this regulation are known to have experienced a significant dip in their appetite levels and reduction of body weight and are rightly termed as the most efficacious appetite suppressant pills.

Griffonia Simplicifolia

Most dietitians and people who have used the Griffonia simplicifolia supplement before, hail it as one of the most useful natural sources of 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). Just like its C. Fimbriata counterpart, 5-HTP too is a compound that is transformed into serotonin in the brain, thereby multiplying its count. Therefore, the fact that Griffonia simplicifolia is capable of successfully curbing untimely hunger pangs and suppressing the appetite shouldn’t come as a surprise. Instead of burning the fat directly, it makes certain that the body capitalises on its reserve of energy by decreasing the intake of carbs and hunger levels. A study shows that women, who took G. simplicifolia for 8 weeks, noticed significant reductions of their waistlines. Nevertheless, the sad part is, 5-HTP can possibly promote nausea and abdominal ache if continued for too long and hence, must never be taken without consulting a doctor.

Evidently, when weighed against Caralluma Fimbriata uses the health risks are more in this supplement and can foster the serotonin syndrome if you are also on antidepressants.


Garcinia Cambogia

Lastly, Garcinia cambogia is a weight-loss supplement that is fundamentally derived from a fruit of the same name. It is mainly the peel of this fruit that comprises hydroxycritic acid (HCA) and is corroborated to be rich in weight loss properties. In the animal world, Garcinia cambogia has proven advantageous by shrinking food intake and in human studies, it has been upheld because of its effectiveness in lowering appetite, blocking fat production and losing weight. Quite similar to all the other natural supplements delineated in this article, Garcinia cambogia brings about a change by altering the serotonin levels, which directs the brain to make the person feel fuller even after a light meal. Nonetheless, studies have shown that Garcinia cambogia might not work in the same way for everyone; the results are highly subjective and vary from one individual to another.

Even though it is accompanied by a string of side effects such as headache, skin rashes and stomach issues, Garcinia cambogia is typically safe if the dosage doesn’t exceed the 2,800mg mark.

Which Appetite Suppressant Is the Best?

As you can see, all of these can be extremely effective. However, they all carry their own risks and negatives. My recommendation is always to seek out advice from a trained professional such as a doctor, dietitian or even a personal trainer may be able to help you out. Different people will work better on different pills, so some experimentation with them could be the correct method to go for your own goals.

Thank you for reading.
