Confuse which drugs pr pills I consume? Which one is safe, synthetic or natural? Ever heard about Hoodia Gordonii? Hoodia Gordonii is a natural appetite suppressant herb that has gained a widespread popularity as a potential weight loss pill. Hoodia extracts are marketed as weight-loss pills.

The indigenous populations of Southern Africa (Bushman) had been using Hoodia for the medicinal purposes since long times. The native Bushmans name for this plant is Xshoba and used it for treating indigestion and small infections. The Bushmen also ate Hoodia to help them ward off hunger when on long trips in the desert.

Where Hoodia Gordonii Live?
Hoodia is a succulent plant that grows in the African Kalahari desert. This plant lives in extremely hot weather typical of the Namib Desert, ranging from Central Namibia to southern Angola, especially in plains and rocky areas. It takes many years to mature. Not only in desert, you can plant Hoodia as garden plants. Hoodia Gordonii is very rare and is protected by national conservation laws in South Africa and Namibia. It can only be collected or grown with a permit. Hoddia Gordonii also known as Bushmans Hat and Queen of the Namib.

How can Hoodia Gordonii Help Lossing the Weight?
The scientists have revealed that one molecule in the plant is responsible for the appetite reducing effect. This molecule has been named P57. Phytopharm owns the patent to P57, and no other company or individual can sell Hoodia as a weight loss aid.

Hoodia Gordonii in Market
Hoodia is sold online by various companies and individuals, like Hoodia Gordonii Plus. They are selling dried, powdered Hoodia. However, the appetite suppressing ability of Hoodia Gordonii is only found in large fresh pieces of the plant. The powder contains such a small amount of P57 that it cannot produce the desired effect.

The Tincture is one of the best forms of Hoodia. It is marketed by the company, Jenny Lee Naturals. The tincture turns off the hunger far more rapidly than the powder, which requires slow digestion to extract the chemical compounds. Also, the tincture works in relatively small doses.

The current supply of genuine Hoodia Gordonii is very limited, and is considered rare because South African government has protect Hoodia Gordonii as an endangered plant. In October, 2004, CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) provided added protection.

Some important facts about Hoodia :
  • Hoodia really can suppress your appetite.
  • The dosage of Hoodia necessary to truly suppress appetite is far, far larger than the dosages claimed by many websites selling Hoodia. While some Hoodia formulas contain only 100mg of Hoodia per serving, but a user found that he needed 1000mg of Hoodia three times a day to have any real effect. That's three grams of Hoodia per day, and the cost adds up quickly.
  • Hoodia doesn’t counteract the blood sugar drops that occur following the consumption of refined carbohydrates like soft drinks, cookies, white bread, white rice and other simple carbohydrates. Hoodia only appeared to work in conjunction with a controlled carbohydrate diet.
  • Hoodia in no ways stops body from feeling intense hunger after a heavy workout. It doesn't cause body to lose its mind. The muscles still scream out for calories.
    REAL HOODIA is rare and expensive. It is because hoodia succulent need to ripe and provide appetite suppressant qualities, it takes approximately 5-7 years.
