Visi’s cornerstone product, the Vinnle tablets, are incredibly effective at boosting energy, suppressing appetite, and balancing the body’s chemical makeup. They’re made up of the following all-natural ingredients: Caralluma Fimbriata, Coffee Arabica Isolate, Evodiamine, Theobromine, L-theanine, Green Tea Extract, and Chromium Niacinate.
So what exactly are all of those ingredients, and what do they actually do in your body?
Let’s break them down, shall we?
Today, we’re taking a look at Caralluma fimbriata, Vinnle’s chief ingredient. Caralluma fimbriata comes from a wonder-plant in India. It’s a truly remarkable natural resource that does some amazing things to help our bodies stave off excess fat—and it helps build new muscle.
Caralluma fimbriata is a plant in the cactus family that Indian tribesmen have used for centuries as a portable hunting food. They’re basically vegetables. “Caralluma” refers to the genus of the plant, which is a genus of edible cacti that grows across India. Caralluma fimbriata is the most prevalent of these species.
History and Use
The Indians eat it in several forms. In the Kolli hills of South India, it’s used as a vegetable on a daily basis. In the arid regions of Andhra Pradesh, it’s used in pickles and chutneys. In Western India, it’s well-known as a famine food for its ability to suppress the appetite and quench one’s thirst. It’s also used as a vegetable and appetite suppressant among tribal populations in Kerala, South India.
Over its history of use, which spans centuries on the Indian subcontinent, not a single adverse event has been reported on Caralluma fimbriata.
Botanical experts, university professors, and botanists have testified to the safety and lack of toxicity in Caralluma fimbriata.
The Indian tribal communities also treat Caralluma fimbriata as a unique herb that cures other common health problems beyond its ability to suppress appetite and thirst. When they go hunting, they simply take a bag of Caralluma fimbriata chunks in lieu of bulkier, heavier food.
A double-blind placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial on Caralluma fimbriata was conducted on 50 human subjects, all of which were obese. Half were given the Caralluma fimbriata; half were given a placebo. The trial lasted eight weeks.
At the trial’s end, it was observed that there were statistically significant reductions in all key indicators of weight-loss, and that the caralluma fimbriata was well-tolerated and showed minimal adverse effects. This trial took place at the St. John’s Medical College and Hospital in Bangalore, India.
At a separate trial in Los Angeles held by the Ronald M. Lawrence and Suneeta Choudhary Western Geriatric Research Institute, the same results were found.
It’s worth noting that the only adverse effect reported was this: moderate acidity, constipation, and/or flatulence, all of which subsided after about a week. However, it’s also important to note that every single trial subject experienced these effects, not just the ones taking Caralluma fimbriata. Therefore, researchers determined that it was the gelatin capsules, not what they contained, that caused these effects, as gelatin capsules are made from animal bones, which most digestive systems are unaccustomed to processing.
After a week, however, everyone, em, went back to normal.
We’ll try to avoid getting too much into the nitty-gritty of what happens in the human body to make Caralluma fimbriata work so well—if you want to get into all of that, you can download some lab reports at the link at the end of this post.
In a nutshell, though, here is what’s happening in the body to make caralluma fimbriata so effective.
First, let’s look at how it helps burn fat.
A large contributor to fat buildup in the body is due to an enzyme called citrate lyase. Caralluma fimbriata contains substances—pregnane glycosides, if you want the technical term—that block citrate lyase activity. Therefore, caralluma fimbriata blocks fat formation.
Furthermore, caralluma fimbriata also blocks another enzyme called Malonyl Coenzyme A. When this enzyme is blocked, so too is further fat formation, which forces the body to burn its fat reserves, therefore accelerating fat loss.
Now, let’s look at why it suppresses your appetite.
Researchers have determined that Caralluma fimbriata has activity on the appetite-controlling mechanism of the brain.
The brain’s appetite center is the hypothalamus. When we eat, nerves from the stomach send signals to the hypothalamus, which controls our appetite. The hypothalamus tells the brain to stop eating when it knows the stomach is full. When we’re hungry, it’s the hypothalamus telling our brains that we need to eat.
In a nutshell, Caralluma fimbriata tricks the hypothalamus into believing that we are not hungry.
It has been clinically demonstrated that caralluma fimbriata suppresses the appetite and stops hunger pangs in patients. Researchers believe this is because the pregnane glyocides in Caralluma fimbriata—the same substances that contribute to burning fat—also inhibit the hunger sensory mechanism in the hypothalamus.
That’s not all Caralluma fimbriata does, however. It also helps in ways that other diet pills almost never do, which is: It generates lean muscle mass.
An overwhelming reason why most weight-loss programs fail, according to researchers, is that the patient always feels greatly fatigued after losing weight. As a result, the patient goes back to old eating habits, thus regaining the weight they lost.
Patients who take Caralluma fimbriata, however, reporting feeling more energetic. And not only have they lost fat—they have also gained lean muscle mass.
This goes back to how the Caralluma fimbriata promotes not only the inhibition of fat buildup, but also how it promotes the burning of existing fat. In other words, it’s boosting your metabolism, which sets your fat on fire and gives you more energy, which makes you more active.
Muscle cells burn more calories than fat—this is well-known. So, when we acquire more energy, our muscle cells burn energy faster, resulting in shrinking fat cells and stronger muscle cells. Muscle does weigh more than fat, but it also occupies far less space, which makes patients appear more trim and compact. Patients on Caralluma fimbriata have shown clear and significant decrease in arm and waist circumference, along with fat loss, for reasons already explained in this post.
