Hoodia: Is Hoodia Dangerous?

Apr 26, 2008
Whilst every new method of losing weight gets a great deal of publicity, it seems that the excitement surrounding the Hoodia plant may be completely justified; many people are hoping this will be the answer to their ongoing problem. Merchandisers all over the world have started using this 'magic' plant in the composition of natural Hoodia weight loss products; with a weight problem that is now global, this plant will be in great demand. But, do you know why this strange plant is in such demand or even where it comes from?

Found in some of the deserts of South Africa, the Hoodia is a cactus, one of thirteen different varieties. The Gordonii species has the ability to suppress (and eliminate) the appetite of someone who eats it. It is now considered one of the most effective natural appetite inhibitors in the world, so, there's no wonder, weight loss treatments using this ingredient are all the craze.

Scientists actually researched the cactus plant in depth over a period of years using volunteers to test its effectiveness. Many tests have been carried out but one that is notable surrounds the BBC team who went for a whole day without eating or drinking after just consuming one Hoodia leaf each.

The best part about using Hoodia weight loss products is there is little or no chance of any side effect and so far none have been found. On the other hand, regular weight loss products have been shown to cause irregular heartbeats and digestive conditions. 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.

Nevertheless, whilst it is being taken, the user should still drink plenty of fluids and eat a healthy diet. The idea of using the Hoodia weight loss pills on a regular basis is just to reduce the amount of food you normally consume; the body still needs food and drink however, otherwise health will be adversely affected. Many people are turning to Hoodia as the right way to keep their meals on the right track.

Remember the cactus is found in remote areas and is rare so weight loss products containing the extracts will be expensive. With a simple search performed on the Internet you will find dozens of Hoodia weight loss treatments that come in a variety of promotional offers. Be aware that many of them are forged, containing little or no real extract at all. Be prepared to pay a premium for any product containing Hoodia as it is considered to be the best natural appetite suppressant in the world. Avoid those offers that appear to be 'too good to be true'.
