What is Hoodia? – Does Hoodia work?

The Exotic Weight Loss Miracle

Everyone’s favorite exercise regimen is exercise plus a healthy diet. But most of us fall off the grid and go back to our previous ways when we can’t seem to achieve our goal. And so we resort to more assertive and effective means of weight loss.

Hoodia is a derivative of the African leafless succulent plant, Hoodia Gordonii, which is known for its medicinal uses. The plant looks a lot like a cactus, or for some a cucumber with spikes. It started as a cure for indigestion and simple infections as practiced by the natives. For the indigenous people in Africa, they use Hoodia Gordonii as a hunger suppressant during the long hunting trips. The plant is used by peeling off the outer covering, in the process removing the spikes. What is left is the sappy inner portion. In Africa it is eaten raw but for faster and better packaging, the effectiveness of this plant is placed into smaller and easier to take pills.

The prices of Hoodia vary depending on the brand. There are products which can be found at a lower price and others can be considered pricey. The cheapest Hoodia can be found at a price of $8. This can be 60 capsules of 100mg, or 400 mg. Another price range would be somewhere between $35 and $43. As stated, most of the time, the brand determines the product’s price.

This dietary supplement has not been totally tested and still needs more work. But since today, most review of this drug have indicated that the drug helped them lose weight without harmful side effects, then, the decision whether to buy it, or not, is up to you.

It may be necessary to seek your doctor’s advice before you take this medication. If you are taking medications for a medical condition, the more reason that you should seek medical advice.

I you want to try Hoodia products, find a respectable brand also from a respectable distributor. Being aware that fake products are scattered in the market should also be an important thing to consider. As these products might not only not give you the slimming effects that you expect, but it might also produce other adverse effects.
