Can Hoodia Slim You Down?

Jun 5, 2008
An ancient and interesting plant, Hoodia Gordonii, has been used for thousands of years, but is only just catching on in the Western World. It was recently discovered that Hoodia Gordonii carries molecules that assist with weight-loss. Huge media coverage has led to a flourishing Hoodia Gordonii industry, whether Pure Hoodia or with Hoodia as just one of the ingredients.

Vast media coverage is responsible for the plant becoming widely known and has led to a thriving Hoodia industry. There are some things you will need to know however, before you rush off to the nearest store to start buying it, to be used as a weight loss product.

You should know that there are a wide variety of Hoodia plants, but not all of them possess the weight-loss quality. In fact, only the Hoodia Gordonii contains the active element that assists in suppressing the appetite. The demand for the product currently far surpasses the supply, and there are some unscrupulous sellers who are mis-representing other types of Hoodia as the weight-loss product.

While it is true that some of these products are indeed made from Hoodia, they do not contain the Hoodia Gordonii extract that give the product its weight-loss ability. It is necessary that you carefully read the labels to ensure that what you are buying is the true product.

Many companies will make claims that the products they sell will help you to lose weight. The only active ingredient that has proven to be able to do this is the P57 molecule. This molecule was isolated in the Hoodia Gordonii plant and to date in no other.

It was found in studies, that people considered to be morbidly obese using products containing the P57 molecule ate 1000 calories less on average in any given day. This has obviously led to people thinking of Hoodia for weight-loss, and believing that it is the new rescue method for obese people who are looking to slim down.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that provided the products are made from the extract of real Hoodia Gordonii, it will contain the active ingredient within the plant. Further study in the plant shows that the molecule can only be found in the core of the plant.

So the answer to the big question, "Can Hoodia slim you down?" The answer is a resounding yes! That is, as long as it is real Hoodia Gordonii and not one that is a fake.
