Swanson Best Weight-Control Formulas Caralluma Herb Review
This review is focused on the product Caralluma Herb. This product is manufactured by Swanson Best Weight-Control Formulas: This product claims to assist with suppressing hunger cravings and claims to be formulated safe and effective, with no side effects that might cause jitters. Read our review for more.
The ingredient found in these capsules are:
- Slimaluma (Caralluma fimbriata extract) (aerial parts) (standardized to 25% caratuberside) (500 mg)
Other not active ingredients are gelatin, microcrystalline cellulose (plant fiber). The product may contain one or both of the following: magnesium stearate, silica. Caralluma fimbriata extract is known to be effective for weight control and to help to reduce weight, by increasing the metabolic rate. Research has shown that, for this substance to be effective the active ingredient should be 1600 mg per dose. Additionally, the active ingredient is only 25% not 100%, which means that it is a quarter of what the best supplements would provide. This product contains gelatin, therefore it is not suitable for vegans or vegetarians.
The manufacturer’s recommended dosage is one capsule, twice daily, 45 minutes before a meal. This affords only a daily dose of 1000 mg of caralluma fimbriata extract, 600 mg short of the ideal amount.
A 60-capsule bottle is available directly from the manufacturer at $20.99. This is a discounted price, the original price being $28.49. A 10% discount per order and free shipping is possible only if a consumer subscribes to a monthly purchase of the product. However, such a subscription is notoriously difficult to cancel. The consumer is locked in while the credit card is deducted automatically.
Despite our research efforts, no manufacturer’s guarantee could be located. This is a concern: the implication is that this product is not as effective as the company has claimed.
Conclusion – Caralluma Herb
The weight loss product, Caralluma Herb, appears a useful supplement that could help with weight management. This is a product offered by the manufacturer on their own website and at a discounted rate. Another positive aspect of this product is that the dosage instructions are clear. Users may therefore be certain that this supplement will provide optimal benefits. On the downside, this product also raises some concerns. A lack of a guarantee is problematic as it makes it risky for the purchaser. Another concern is that the dosage is much lower than scientific studies have found to be the quantity required for best results. Inferior results may therefore be incurred. This company does not offer package deals; instead, they offer only a subscription service. Such services are difficult to cancel, the money being deducted from a credit card every month. Lastly, this product contains binders which reduces the quality of the formula.
