Are There Any Side Effects to Hoodia Gordonii?

Jun 5, 2008
The benefits of using Hoodia Gordonii are now far more prominent than they used to be. The pills have been enhanced to have particular effects in the area of weight-loss. Compared to other products that are now available on the market, those containing Hoodia have far more health benefits and are widely accepted.

Another reason is that when you use Hoodia, you do not have to go on a diet. Hoodia Gordonii extract is an appetite suppressant, and not a diet pill. It grows naturally in the Hoodia Gordonii plant, and the core is extracted and used in the weight-loss products. It provides energy while helping you to stay healthy when used properly.

In fact, raw Hoodia has been in the African diet for many years. The world's oldest African tribes have used Hoodia for thousands of years with no ill effect. It is widely used on hunting trips to stave off hunger while hunting.

The local tribes, whose ancestors had also used the plants for thousands of years report that there are no negative side effects from use of it. It is for this reason that it has been established as a food item in South Africa, as opposed to a medicine.

The only real side effect is that the Hoodia will trick your brain into believing that you are full, even when you have eaten much less than you normally do. This may present to be a problem if you need strength and energy to perform strenuous tasks.

The one great concern that does surround the use of Hoodia is misuse by individuals who have eating disorders who use it for rapid weight loss and deprive the body of necessary nutrients. A suggested labeling of the boxes containing the product would say: "Not for use by children, those who are pregnant or lactating, those with eating disorders or those who are under-weight or within healthy weight ranges.

Other than that, Hoodia Gordonii is a natural product and is perfectly harmless to an individual, and is safe for use as an appetite suppressant. There are also no known adverse reactions when taking medications either, but as with all other things, you should consult with your doctor before adding anything new to your diet.

You'll also want to read labels before buying, to make sure you are getting the real thing. There are some unscrupulous sellers out there, that will sell you Hoodia, but not tell you that only the extract from the Hoodia Gordonii plant will help to curb your appetite.
