Zenvita Pure Caralluma Fimbriata Extract comes out swinging with its up-front claims of helping you lose weight as both an appetite suppressant and a fat blocker. It is also said to increase your metabolism and do all the above without any side effects. Sounds like a good deal. Is it?
Does it actually work? Read on to learn what we found out in researching this review of Zenvita Pure Caralluma Fimbriata.
The product consists of 500 mg of Caralluma Fimbriata within each vegetable cellulose capsule. It’s “doesn’t contain” list is considerably longer and includes no added artificial ingredients, additives, preservatives, eggs, peanuts, milk, soy, shellfish, wheat or yeast.
Caralluma Fimbriata contains a component (pregnane glycosides) which is believed to block the activity of the enzyme citrate lyase and thus helps block the formation of fat. This forces body to burn fat which has already been stored by the body and thus it is said to accelerate weight loss. Further, there is clinical research that Caralluma Fimbriata promotes suppression of appetite.
The prescribed dosage of Zenvita Pure Caralluma Fimbriata is two capsules per day on an empty stomach at least 30 minutes before a meal, with 8 ounces of water.
ZenVita does not sell its product directly to consumers. At the time we wrote this article, purchase of this supplement was available on Amazon for $18.04 for 180 capsules, a three-month supply.
There is no return guarantee mentioned on the Zenvita official website for this product. This may be connected to the fact that the company does not sell retail and, therefore, figures it doesn’t have to deal with “retail-related” issues. But it does leave the product open to unfavorable comparisons with competitors products that are covered by the manufacturer for return and refund.
Amazon customer feedback for the 1200 mg version of this product is quite good with some 76% rating it positively and only 16% rating it negatively.
Conclusion – Zenvita Pure Caralluma Fimbriata
In terms of formula, Zenvita Pure Caralluma Fimbriata brings another 1000 mg (or, perhaps now, 1200 mg) one-ingredient-only product to the market. While there’s nothing intrinsic that makes it stand out, favorably, from the crowd, the prevalence of positive customer feedback is a good sign.
The lack of a manufacturer-backed return policy is a concern as are the reports of mild side effects from some users.
