Safe and Rapid Weight Loss Using Hoodia

May 7, 2008
Hoodia has become synonymous with weight loss. Just like any other dietary supplement, Hoodia came under fire when it reached its peak popularity about 6 months prior to this writing. Distributors of Hoodia have made some fantastic claims regarding Hoodia's ability to curb appetite, boost metabolism, and help create the bodies that most of us are still chasing.

Hoodia is not a cactus but an herb that is found in South Africa. For generations, Local Bushmen have used Hoodia in order to control hunger before and during ritual fasting.

If we possessed the technology to grow these plants in our own back yards, all the claims regarding Hoodia would be true. The plant itself is very powerful but we rely on manufacturers to tell us the truth regarding their Hoodia concentrations. Usually the concentration isn't high enough to really suppress an average appetite.

Research conducted at Brown Medical School proved that there was a significant association between Hoodia and an appetite decrease of about 40 to 60%. The studies were performed on rats and there has yet to be any one single study performed on humans by a research institution.

Real Hoodia operates by producing an effect on your hypothalamus gland. We experience hunger sensations in order to keep our blood sugar levels within healthy ranges. Certain Hoodia products may very well be effective in controlling appetites and decreasing cravings, but some simply stop eating altogether because they cease to have an appetite any longer.

It is important that you continue to eat regularly if you choose to try Hoodia. Especially if you purchase a bottle created from the actual Hoodia plant with high enough concentration to lose your appetite altogether. Total restriction from food is known as an eating disorder, which will wreak havoc on your metabolism.

Successful weight loss is crucial for your health. Actually, obesity is quickly becoming the leading health problem in the United States. Healthy weight loss comes from eating less and exercising more rather than starvation.

Your body cannot perform properly unless is gets the energy intake from food on a daily basis. Using real Hoodia extract products can help you to drop a few pounds but starving yourself will only hurt you.
