Thursday is Herbs Day!!!!! Except its not....its Friday......Yesterday was Thursday and I blogged about something other than herbs. I don't even know what it was about. Oh yeah, skin care. We've been super busy at the pool store. Remember...Pearson Pools, your one stop pool shop? :)
I know, I know...I tried to stop the shameless plugs, but I can't.
You should know that about me by now.
I thought yesterday was Wednesday. It obviously wasn't. I NEEDED yesterday to be Wednesday so I could finish up some work that needs to be done. I know everyone gets all excited about Friday. Not me. I need ONE extra day so I don't have to work on Saturday. Every week, I plan and plan so that my weekend is free. And yet, here I am again, looking at a Saturday in which I'm working. *sigh* Oh well, its always good to earn a living right? In fact, I keep telling my husband, now I'm telling you. I'm not working for money. I'm working for home improvements!!!!!
Okay, Back to Thursday Is Herbs Day!! ....except its not. You get it.
Look at what a funky looking flower this is!!!
Its like "hauntingly beautiful". I've never said that about a plant before. Or anything else for that matter. But, it really kinda is. Its so ugly its pretty.
Anyway, the reason its REALLY interesting is this little plant is a really good appetite suppressant. Guess what its called.
Go on, guess....
No, I said GUESS...
Okay, Okay!! I'll just tell you. Its called caralluma fimbriata.
This is a super cool herb!! Its clinically proven to remove hunger pangs. Its 100% all natural with no side effects, caffeine, or other stimulants.
It really works too! I've tried it. I buy it as the NOW Herbs brand. The NOW product is called Slimaluma Plus.
If you're trying to lose weight this can be a very valuable tool in your box to keep you from feeling hungry.
Here's an excerpt of one study from http://www.carallumaactivesweightloss.com/
Of the remaining 22 participants, the summary of the trial found that over 80% of subjects lost weight with Caralluma, with 11 of them losing more than 6 inches total. Of the others, most lost around 1 to 2 pounds or maintained their original weight. The highest weight losses recorded were by one woman who lost 9 pounds, and a second woman who lost 8 pounds. Meanwhile, there was one subject who deviated from instructions and increased her calorie intake, resulting in a gain of 17 pounds.
Now, its not like a fat burner or anything. It just reduces your hunger. You take it 45 minutes before each meal. It helps to comfortably keep portion size way down.
You're welcome!!! :)
