: The active constituent in Slendesta® is a special protein called Proteinase Inhibitor II (PI2). The PI2 in Slendesta works by promoting and extending the body’s natural release of cholecystoskinin (CCK), a powerful peptide that signals certain organs, including the stomach and brain, to induce feelings of fullness and satiety.
Without any of the unpleasant side effects such as jitters or bloating, Slendesta® promotes natural hunger management that allows people to stay on track and achieve their weight management goals.
Slimaluma®: Slimaluma® is Gencor’s proprietary and patented Caralluma Fimbriata extract. Caralluma Fimbriata is a cactus-like plant with long-standing use as food in India. The cactus was often eaten by local tribes-people to ward off hunger while hunting in the forests. Its appetite suppressing qualities make it an ideal addition to modern diets. Gencor has developed a patented process for extracting the key constituents of the whole plant associated with appetite suppression and healthy weight management without chemically altering those constituents. This process has allowed Gencor to develop an effective, safe, an easy-to-use ingredient that helps adults of all ages maintain a healthy weight with diet and exercise.*
Recent studies involving Caralluma Fimbriata:

On reviewing the studies undertaken on the chemistry, pharmacology, and therapeutic potential of Caralluma, it is concluded that the genus is also composed of pregnane glycosides as one of the major constituents. Availability of pregnane glycosides in Caralluma is an indication of the appetite-suppressant property of this genus. This coupled with the GRAS status of the extract of C. fimbriata has opened the possibility of developing an anti-obesity/appetite-suppressant product from other species of Caralluma. (source)
