Will Hoodia be Effective in Slimming You Down?

Jul 1, 2008
Hoodia for weight loss is just now beginning to rise in popularity in the West, but in actuality, the Hoodia Goronii plant has been used for thousands of years. The immense amount of media attention has resulted in a prosperous industry in Hoodia Gordonii products, whether it is Pure Hoodia or adding Hoodia in an existing product.

Although you will most likely want to begin using the Hoodia supplement immediately, you should take the time to research its properties. There are many studies available that can show you just how Hoodia Gordonii helps in the weight loss process.

Once you have a solid understanding of the facts, you will be able to tell the authentic products from the fakes. Many companies are adding Hoodia to their products, but only those products containing Hoodia Gordonii have been proven effective for suppressing the appetite.

Unfortunately, there are some unscrupulous manufacturers who are trying to cash in on the current popularity of Hoodia by selling products claiming to be Pure Hoodia. Although these products may come from Hoodia plants, they are not necessarily using Hoodia Gordonii.

There are many companies claiming that their Hoodia extract can slim you down, but the only thing that has been proven so far is the 'P57 molecule'. This is the active ingredient isolated in Hoodia Gordonii. This ingredient is licensed to the company, Phytopharm, who conducted the studies on it.

The results of their studies indicated that when morbidly obese individuals used P57, they consumed 1,000 fewer calories per day. Obviously this is the reason that people believe that Hoodia is the new magic bullet to assist those who wish to lose weight.

You should also keep in mind that if a product claims to be extracted from Hoodia Gordonii, it should show that as one of the product's active ingredients. This active ingredient, studies show, can only be found in the plant's core.

So, will Hoodia be effective in slimming you down? To put it simply, Yes! That is, if you use a genuine product and stay away from the phony ones.
