Cheap Hoodia Exposed! Shocking Truth About Online Hoodia Sellers

Nov 15, 2007
The amount of Hoodia sold on the internet is growing each and every year to record levels. The publicity this new wonder drug has gained from stories on CNN, CBS News, 60 Minutes and Oprah's "O" magazine have only pushed the demand for it to astronomical levels. All this demand has attracted dozens of Hoodia suppliers to pop up in all corners of the internet. Unfortunately most of these suppliers sell diluted, useless concoctions, using Hoodia's credibility to sell you on their product.

The worst thing is that many of these suppliers sell you their product for what seems a great bargain. So it is that much more tempting to try it. Unfortunately, all, if not most, of the cheap Hoodia on the internet is Hoodia you want nothing to do with.

Why's that?

It's simple. Most suppliers on the internet cut corners when producing their Hoodia. You see, producing pure Hoodia with the active P57 molecule (the reason why Hoodia helps you lose weight) is a very expensive process, and most companies are not willing to do everything it takes to make sure their Hoodia is pure.

So, what are some examples of ways that these unethical Hoodia suppliers cut corners to make their product cheaper?

Here are three ways they do that:

1) They sell Hoodia from Mexico or China or somewhere else in the world Hoodia can be grown. The only problem is that this Hoodia has no effect on weight loss. The only type of Hoodia that has proven to have the P57 molecule that helps with weight loss is the Hoodia Gordonii species grown in the Kalahari Desert in South Africa. Buying Hoodia from other places is a lot cheaper, because there's very little competition for it. It is expensive to buy it from the Kalahari, because it is a protected plant. You need to get certification to be able export Hoodia Gordonii out of South Africa.

2)They mix cheaper (and often, harmful) ingredients with their Hoodia to make it cheaper to sell. Pure Hoodia has shown to work in human trials to date, and the best part is that it has no known side effects. The same thing cannot be said of many other ingredients that internet suppliers mix in their product. These other types of ingredients have been known to cause headaches and dizziness.

3)They don't have strict, quality controls to ensure their Hoodia retains its purity and effectiveness when processed. Your Hoodia Supplier should be able to produce certification proving they are using industry standard manufacturing processes, at a minimum.

And that's just a start.

Once you really think about it, there are so many ways that unethical suppliers can create the impression that they are a good honest company, when really they are nothing more than a scam.

It doesn't cost much to set up a slick website, and set up a delivery system. It does cost money to ensure that the Hoodia supplied is pure 100% South African Hoodia Gordonii with the active P57 molecule though.

So to an unsuspecting person, the Hoodia on sale at some of these websites looks genuine. But you need to be careful. You need to be wary of the 3 points raised above. And you need to know how to tell a good supplier from a bad one.

So, you need to know how to tell if a seller gets their stock from a genuine certified exporter of South African Hoodia Gordonii. You need to know how to tell whether a supplier is selling a 'diluted' version of Hoodia mixed with other ingredients. You need to know how you can instantly tell if a supplier has the required quality controls to ensure their Hoodia remains pure. And there's more you need to check off with a supplier before you eve think about handing over your cash to them. With our full criteria (on our website - instructions below), you'll be able to do this inside a few minutes.

If you don't do these things, chances are that you will be spending good money after bad, and paying for diet supplements that don't really help you with any weight loss. It will be money just thrown away.
