Some Interesting Facts About Hoodia

Aug 17, 2007
Hoodia is a natural appetite suppressant, which is gaining attention as a powerful weapon in the struggle against weight loss and obesity. Hoodia was introduced in the market very recently in year 2004.

Here are some facts about Hoodia that one should know:
* Hoodia gordonii resembles a cactus, but actually it is a succulent from Kalahari Desert of southern Africa.

* Hoodia Gordonii is not a drug. It is absolutely an herb. Some pharmaceuticals companies are trying to isolate "P57" appetite suppressing molecule to create a pharmaceutical drug in the near future. Although in the US, it carries an FDA warning, most countries consider Hoodia a food product.

* Gordonii variety of Hoodia only has the appetite suppressant characteristics. Other varieties of Hoodia are not as effective as Gordonii. Always look for the word Gordonii, when purchasing your Hoodia product.

* Hoodia empowers your brain making you think that you have eaten a large meal so you feel full. Please note: Hoodia does not make you feel sluggish or heavy like after Thanksgiving dinner, you just feel content and don't have the urge to snack.

* Hoodia may work very quickly or may take long period depending on person to person. The average time for Hoodia to start working is 45 minutes (25 minutes for liquid Hoodia). To feel the full effect of Hoodia it usually takes 4 days to 2 weeks, with each day working a little better than the day before.

* Hoodia Gordonii has no known side effects. This means no racing heart, no nausea, no shakes or keeping awake at night. Actually you can use Hoodia right before bedtime.

* For thousands of years, the San people used Hoodia to fight hunger and thirst during their long journeys in the desert of Kalahari.

How Does Hoodia Work?

Hoodia Gordonii contains a magic molecule called as P57, which act on nerve cells like glucose molecule and make the brain feel full. A clinical research performed in Britain showed that Hoodia Gordonii could reduce appetite by more than one thousand calories a day. That is approximately 1/3 of the average American diet.

Does Hoodia Have Any Known Side Effects?

So far there have been no known negative side effects found in Hoodia use. There are however, several positive side effects such as:
* Feeling full more quickly.
* Most Hoodia users ate 1,000 calories less per day.
* A delay in the time after eating before hunger sets in again.
* General feeling of well being. This is actually a unique side effect for a product sold for weight loss. Many overweight people have a tendency to be emotional eaters. Emotional eaters will eat the most when slightly or highly depressed. With Hoodia's effect of giving you a sense of wellbeing there is a natural tendency to eat less. This can be a significant plus for a good portion of the population!

* Reduced interest in food.

Hoodia Has Worked For Me!
I have been using Hoodia since the week before Christmas. I was able to escape the holidays without the normal 5-8 pound "holiday gain". I don't find myself snacking on junk food or running for a carton of ice cream every time life throws me a curve.
Unlike other weight loss products, you do not build up a tolerance to Hoodia, so it continues to work day after day!

Ladies, this is for you. If you crave chocolate or salty food right before your period, you will be happy in knowing that Hoodia zaps these cravings! You will also feel less cranky and possibly less cramping.

Remember, that Hoodia is not a cure all. It will not make you gorgeous in a few days, fix all of your personal relationships or help you win the lottery. Hoodia however, can help you get back on the track to sensible eating without feeling deprived.

As with any over the counter "diet" product or fitness routine, you should check first with your physician or health care provider before using.
