Want to Lose Weight?

Apr 19, 2008
Over the last few years a new weight loss treatment has started to hit the news in the form of a plant called 'Hoodia'; many people are hoping this will be the answer to their ongoing problem. As soon as the word spread amongst the weight loss industry, Hoodia weight loss products started to be promoted heavily; increasing numbers of people who want to shed pounds are using products containing extracts of this plant. Whilst there is no secret about this plant, most people know very little about where it comes from.

Well it is actually a cactus-like plant with 13 species. One species in particular, Hoodia Gordonii, is being investigated for use as an appetite suppressant. It grows in the Namib and Kalahari deserts in South Africa, having the unique attribute of reducing or even eliminating appetite. To date, nothing medical science has created or investigated has come anywhere near as close to this plant and as a consequence there is a great demand for products containing it as an ingredient.

Before being included in weight loss treatments, this cactus was actually studied in laboratories and even directly tested in first-hand experiments. One particular experiment included a team of people from the BBC who were only given a single Hoodia leaf to eat. The entire team wanted nothing else to eat or drink for the rest of the day.

People fortunate enough to use Hoodia weight loss products that contain extracts from this plant do not experience any ill effects when used. This cannot be said for other types of appetite suppressants. The great advantage of this plant is that not only does it suppress appetite and food craving, but it also gives you the right amount of energy necessary to continue daily tasks without feeling tired.

This does not mean however, that you should discontinue healthy eating and drink regularly during the time you are taking it. People using Hoodia weight loss pills on a regular basis, will not feel the desire to eat as much; however, just because a person doesn't feel hungry, they still need to eat, otherwise their health will suffer. If you experience problems controlling your hunger then using Hoodia weight loss pills are probably the only way to help your problem.

Be prepared to pay a premium for any weight loss products that use real extracts as the production costs involved are high. Plant extracts used in Hoodia weight loss products and pills are readily available over the internet but if the price is very low, you can be sure they are probably not original or contain only insignificant traces of the plant. When you find something that appears too cheap to be genuine, think twice before you order it over the Internet. Real Hoodia is worth every penny, but unauthentic products may do more harm than good.
