Caralluma fimbriata and kidney
In the lab, doctors gave male rats 200 mg of Caralluma fimbriata extract per kg of body weight per day for 90 days while on a high-fat diet. Caralluma fimbriata appeared to help maintain normal kidney function and prevented an increase in oxidative stress levels the doctors had expected to see. Caralluma fimbriata contains phytochemical compounds that work synergistically to protect against metabolic changes that can occur from a high fat diet, doctors said.
