Caralluma Fimbriata Extract
Caralluma Fimbriata is a cactus found in India that's been eaten for centuries. The ancient tribes would take the Caralluma in chunks with them on their hunting trips. They could virtually go for days without eating... because it suppresses appetite and increases energy levels.
Caralluma Fimbriata works in many different ways. It contains pregnane glycosides which blocks fat formation through citrate lyase. It also suppresses appetite by signaling the hypothalamus in the brain that we're just not hungry and at the same time increases your energy level so you burn off more fat.
Caralluma Fimbriata is becoming increasingly popular for its appetite suppressant and weight loss properties, as well as its ability to promote healthy sugar levels.

Guggul Extract (Myrrh)
Guggul is a small, thorny plant native to India. The resin has been used in connection with a wide variety of conditions, including rheumatism and obesity. Years ago it was used for atherosclerosis. Today, guggul extracts are approved in India for lowering elevated serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Guggul contains ketonic steroid compounds known as guggulsterones which are believed to be responsible for guggul's cholesterol- and triglyceride-lowering actions.
Not only can guggul help to support healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, but it also may help support the reductions of LDL and VLDL cholesterols (the bad cholesterols) while raising HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol).
Studies also show that guggul may decrease platelet stickiness whereby lowering the risk of coronary artery disease.
In some scientific studies, guggulsterones reportedly have shown to increase the production of the thyroid hormone which is involved in the cells' breakdown of protein, fat, and carbohydrates, and should promote weight loss.
Artichoke Extract has been in use by herbalists for over a hundred years as a digestive tonic. Recent scientific studies have confirmed that Artichoke Extract may promote healthy digestive function through its ability to aid in fat digestion and promote healthy liver function. It also contains antioxidant flavonoids, such as apigenin and luteolin, that have been shown to support the cardio-vascular system.
The beneficial digestive health effects of artichoke leaf extract are due to the promotion of bile flow in the body. This increased bile flow especially promotes increased digestion of fat. Bile is what serves to move toxins from the liver to the intestine for further elimination.
Coral Mineral Powder
Activated, Biologically Balanced, Ionic Coral may be one of the most exciting discoveries ever in natural health. It contains more than 70 naturally occurring minerals with a chemical makeup almost identical to human bone. It has even been used surgically for bone reconstruction.

Apple Pectin Concentrate
Apple pectin's beneficial effect on the digestive tract stems from it's ability to support and maintain intestinal balance. It may also help to support healthy cholesterol levels by binding with cholesterol and fats to be eliminated through the digestive tract before they can be absorbed which may help to reduce the risk of cardio-vascular problems. This is also believed to slow the absorption of dietary sugars, which may be helpful in supporting healthy blood sugar levels.
Another area of research focuses on the anti-aging, especially in the skin, benefits of a compound called Oligogalacturonides (OGA).
Buchu is a small shrub native to South Africa where it is often used both as a flavoring agent and as a medicine. It has antiseptic and diuretic properties, and acts as a kidney tonic.
