Who Else Wants to Look Slimmer Overnight Without Taking Drugs?

Jun 13, 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'; some believe this is the discovery of the century.

But is it really?

Merchandisers all over the world have started using this 'magic' plant in the composition of natural Hoodia gordonii weight loss products; products containing extracts of this plant are highly sought after. However, the origins of this plant are still a mystery to most people, even to many who use it.

What is Hoodia Gordonii?

Hoodia gordonii is from the cactus family and there are thirteen in all. Only one variant, the 'Gordonii', possesses the ability to suppress appetite. almost completely, when eaten. This wonder plant has caused a stir and is greatly sought after.

No other natural product has ever been discovered that is as effective at blocking hunger pangs. For quite some time this remarkable cactus was studied by scientists and trials carried out on people to ascertain how effective it really was at suppressing the appetite.

For instance some members of a BBC team went for a one day tour without eating or drinking, only eating a Hoodia gordonii leaf and declared they felt neither thirst nor hunger for the entire day. Hoodia gordonii weight loss products are all the more effective given the fact that they are completely free from side-effects.

There are no unpleasant digestive problems or heart rhythm disturbances that often happen with other appetite inhibitors. Users also have the additional benefit of knowing that they will not feel tired whilst they are using it as it supplies the correct amount of energy and reduces the desire to eat.

This does not mean however, that you should discontinue healthy eating and drink regularly during the time you are taking it.

Hoodia gordonii weight loss pills or extracts are just a way of reducing the amount of food you usually eat; the body still needs food and drink however, otherwise health will be adversely affected. Ideally, this is how Hoodia gordonii should be used, especially in obese people, just to control how much they eat.

Don't forget that weight control products containing real extracts of this plant are expensive because the cactus is not common. In many areas where a product is expensive, unauthentic Hoodia gordonii weight loss pills and other supplements allegedly containing the plant are readily available on the internet.

Most of these are fake Hoodia products.

Be warned if you see them at very low prices, it is unlikely to be the genuine product. When you find something that appears too cheap to be genuine, think twice before you order it over the Internet. Real Hoodia gordonii is worth every penny, but unauthentic products may do more harm than good.

How to avoid getting ripped off by hoodia scams.

It is generally accepted that 60% of Hoodia products that are sold in the United States are fake. These products use "filler ingredients" to create pills with fake weight, so that they are allowed to be sold. But the FDA never looks into these, so these companies get away with these fake pills.
