3 Sneaky Tricks Used By Unethical Hoodia Suppliers

Feb 28, 2008
Have you tried to buy Hoodia on the internet? If you have, you will know it can be one of the most confusing and frustrating experiences in life. You have to sort through all types of web sites, each one claiming their Hoodia is the best version for you. It can really mess with you.

How can you possibly filter out all the fakes from the genuine suppliers?

This article will help you to see through a lot of the unethical suppliers and their tactics so that you do not fall into their trap.

The first thing you should do is realize that the Hoodia industry is no different than any other industry in the world. There a handful of genuine companies that sell the best, most potent type of Hoodia, while there are hundreds of other sellers below them who sell ineffective Hoodia that really doesn't do much for your weight loss goals. The only problem is, if you don't know that to look for, it is very hard to tell the difference between them.

So how can someone who may not know too much about which companies are the best, but who wants to enjoy the weight loss benefits from using pure Hoodia, invest in the right company?

The first thing to do is to immediately get rid of companies that are clearly selling fake versions of real Hoodia. Below is a list of three tactics you will see employed on pretty much all web sites selling Hoodia. If the web site you are looking only uses these three tactics to convince you to buy, you know you need to move on. This is not the company you want to place your trust with.

So, here are the three things you should dismiss when you are trying to decide on the best supplier:

1) A certificate that is put on the website to get you to believe that their Hoodia is real. Now I'm not saying that all certificates are bogus. What I am saying is that the usual type of certificate found on the internet really should not give you much confidence. You have to be skeptical. The reason is because most of these certificates are handed out when the company first starts trading. These companies will send out their purest most potent batch to be tested, but that's not what they're necessarily supplying to you. After getting their certificate, they will go on and sell far less effective, diluted versions under the same product name. It is the old 'bait and switch' and it is very common on the internet.

2) Written testimonials from 60 minutes, Oprah, the BBC, and other news outlets about the effectiveness of Hoodia. Although these testimonials are genuine, they are about how well the Hoodia plant works in reducing your hunger in general - they have got nothing to do with the actual product label being sold on that site. This means that any web site or even shop can make up a pill, put even a small trace of Hoodia in it and use these exact testimonials. So, instead of trusting these type of testimonials, expect to see them everywhere. Just don't buy based on them.

3) Hoodia pills mixed with other ingredients, such as green tea, that apparently boosts the weight loss effects of Hoodia. Although this may make sense at first glance, it really doesn't if you know a little about chemistry. You see, when two separate substances are mixed, they usually interact. What that means is the result of mixing the two substances could mean you end up with a totally different compound. And the worst thing is, this new compound might not have any of the features of the original two substances to make it. So, if you keep this mind, then it is really impossible to say how two ingredients, that both supposedly help you lose weight, will react inside your body. It may be that both become ineffective when mixed. You just don't know. The other thing against this sort of supplier is that most of the other ingredients that are mixed with Hoodia have not yet been proven as ingredients that really do help. Many of them have also been known to cause side effects. So all in all, you have to be careful when you come see a web site mixing ingredients up in a pill, whether it is a Hoodia pill or not.

So that's a short list of what to look out for to be careful. You need to know more though to protect yourself.

You need to know how to pick out a genuine supplier. This involves looking for a certain type of testimonial that's not so common amongst Hoodia suppliers on the internet. You'll also need to know how to recognize a certain type of certificate that very few companies get about their Hoodia, because if they're not genuine they'll be caught out. Only companies that sell pure Hoodia with every batch will have this type of certificate. And of course you'll need to look for companies that sell Hoodia without mixing any other ingredients.

If you don't protect yourself as well as you can, chances are that you will end up buying Hoodia that really isn't the pure form of Hoodia that works. And when you don't get the results you were after you'll think, "this is something else that didn't work for me", when in fact you were misled. If this happens to you it also means you'll have wasted your hard earned money on something that is nothing but expensive urine. It is just not worth it.
