Hoodia - Get The Skinny On It!

Jan 5, 2008
The first time I heard about hoodia, it sounded like some kind of cultic religion. However, it turned out to be something quite good that helps people with weight loss.

It's good to know that people taking hoodia are having positive results, and the positive results came without the any of the side affects of prescription drugs. Hoodia is not like the pharmaceutical weight-loss products that are unnatural and have been proven harmful.

*What is This Late, Great Weight-Loss Discovery Called Hoodia?"

First let's set the record straight. Hoodia's real name is hoodia gordonii, however it is more popularly called hoodia. Hoodia is an attractive small plant that looks like a little cactus, but isn't. It is actually a member of the succulent plants of the Apocynaceae family, which is found in South Africa.

The African San People, who live in Botswana, have used it for thousands of years to stave off hunger in times of food shortage. The San People are commonly known as "Bushmen." The huge variety of uses they found for Hoodia Gordonii is incredible. They have used hoodia for a variety of purposes, including:

- To control the appetite when food was not available

- A thirst quencher

- To relieve stomach cramping

- To relieve problems with hemorrhoids

- Tuberculosis

- Indigestion

- Hypertension

- For diabetes control

The African Bushmen found many uses for hoodia, and, to be honest with you, I have no idea of how effective it was for the list above. But there is one thing I do know; modern society has found it to be very useful in one area.

*Modern Society's Use for Hoodia Gordonii*

The modern world use of hoodia is much more simplified. We use hoodia to lose weight, and it works! It took a while, but modern science finally produced the hoodia diet pill and hoodia liquid extract with extremely positive results. Since its development for weight loss purposes, it has become extremely popular among those who would like to lose weight.

Hoodia is a natural appetite suppressant that aids you in your weight-loss efforts. Hundreds of testimonies verify the effectiveness of hoodia. People are losing weight and feeling and looking better...and all without any negative side affects to deal with.

Having a slimmer and healthier body are the greatest benefits of losing weight. Are you interested in greater health and a slimmer body? If you are, you may want to try hoodia gordonii.
