Evolution Of Hoodia Gordonii Diet Pills

Aug 17, 2007
Hoodia Gordonii is a unique plant, which has long been consumed by the indigenous San Bushmen to ward off hunger cravings, suppress the appetite and feel fine without food or water for more than twenty-five thousand years.

This unique ability of the plant has raised massive interest by the pharmaceutical community. This has resulted in the development of safe and effective herbal Hoodia diet supplements for weight loss. Today, there are many variations of Hoodia Gordonii diet pills, but all of them were only possible from the groundbreaking research over the last 3 decades.

Ever since its discovery in 1970, experts and researchers have completed dozens of studies aiming to discover the secret fat burning ingredient that makes a Hoodia Gordonii diet so effective. Once found, the plan was to extract the unique compound and mass produce it as the worlds most revolutionary herbal diet pill.

It turns out that this very compound was isolated and named P57. The SANL (South Africa National Library) was responsible for the rigorous research and applied for its patent in 1977. It soon turned over the rights for the commercialization of the plant extracts to a United Kingdom company named Phytopharm.

In mid 1977, the Phytopharm company started its pre-clinical testing on lab rats and compared it with similar other compounds. The pre-clinical experiments were supervised and conducted by Dr. Richard Dixey. These tests showed promising results and the project proceeded to clinical testing.

In 1998, Phytopharm developed their anti-obesity Hoodia Gordonii diet formulation and decided to go into phase1 clinical testing. The test results showed that 70% of the trial participants were able to achieve their goals over the trial period.

In October of the same year, Phytopharm worked with mega drug company Pfizer to make Hoodia Gordonii diet pills available to everyone in the United States and worldwide.

In 1999, a research center and plantation was started in South Africa to allow ongoing testing, clinical research and development of Hoodia Gordonii for dietary purposes. Joint research was conducted by both Phytopharm and Pfizer on the synthesis of the active ingredient which is now used over the counter herbal supplements

In 2002, Pfizer released its rights on the active ingredient because it was too hard to synthesize. On the same year, the CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) acknowledged the rights of the San Tribesman over the local supply of Hoodia Gordonii.

The San were granted a percentage of the profits made from worldwide sales, provided that the plants were sold as extracts. The extract is what is used today by several companies who manufacture and sell their Hoodia Gordonii diet pills.

After 2003, much clinical testing and analysis was done to see how well Hoodia Gordonii diet supplements worked. The experiments proved once and for all that a Hoodia Gordonii diet is an effective and safe solution for fighting obesity. Best of all it did not require a prescription and was readily available over the Internet.

In one particular trial, eighteen overweight males took Hoodia diet pills regularly, and the most instant results were: less hunger cravings for food, and less intake of calories. This led to as much as 10 pounds in weight loss within the first month.

Other separate tests were also conducted, and in one of these tests, Stewart Gulian, a resident of Palm Beach Florida, lost 80lbs using a Hoodia Gordonii diet, and was featured on both CNN and CBS.

The primary way that Hoodia Gordonii diet pills work is that by the reduction of desire for food. Results may vary from person to person, but the only standard that seems to hold up is that Hoodia really works.

The supplement has proven time and again that it can help a person to feel hungry less often simply by consuming the extract. That person will eat less than they normally do and in effect loss weight by natural means.
