Taking Diet Pills have always been a popular way to lose weight fast. Unfortunately, since there are many side effects that can occur, diet pills are usually not recommended for the average dieter. However, there is one diet pill that is gaining lots of attention for not only being effective at weight loss, but also being very safe for use. It is called Hoodia.
What is a Hoodia?
Hoodia is a substance that is derived from the Hoodia Gordonii plant. It is not a manufactured drug as some may think, but a naturally grown substance that can suppress the appetite. Hoodia looks like a cactus in appearance and is only found in the Kalahari Desert. It is a very powerful appetite suppressant that works by tricking your brain into thinking that you are full even though you may not have eaten an appropriate amount of food yet. Because Hoodia is an all natural substance it is said to be much safer than many other kinds of diet pills. However, it should be noted that there is no published scientific studies that Hoodia works as an appetite suppressant. Since there has been no scientific study, it is difficult to tell whether the safety or effectiveness of Hoodia is considered to be significant
For those that are interested in trying Hoodia, make sure you purchase only Hoodia Gordonii. This is the only type of Hoodia that contains a molecule called P57. This molecule is purported to be the active ingredient that offers appetite suppression.
Hoodia for Weight Loss?
Hoodia is now becoming a popular way to lose weight- mainly due to the buzz and mystique surrounding this substance. Hoodia can come in many forms including diet pills, liquid drops and even as a diet patch or spray that is ingested.
It is reported that it usually takes about 14 days of ingesting Hoodia before you notice an appetite suppressant effect. However, since every body works differently, results may vary. Many retailers that sell Hoodia recommend that you take this substance on an empty stomach before eating breakfast. This way you can suppress your appetite for most of the day.
As with any diet plan or substance you intend to take, it is important to talk to your doctor first to ensure that Hoodia is right for you.
Does Hoodia Really Work? ?
Hoodia is reported to work by suppressing one’s appetite and thus eating less calories per day. The jury is still out on whether Hoodia is an effective and overall safe way to lose weight. However, with the interest by both consumers and the media, many scientists are looking into this substance and planning medical studies for the immediate future.
For individuals that are desperate to lose weight Hoodia should be avoided. Unfortunately, there is too little data available on this substance. It may be possible that Hoodia may not work or worse- that it can have unhealthy side effects.
Because Hoodia has become a popular diet substance, there are many fake Hoodia products popping up in the market. Be aware of counterfeit Hoodia products. Try to purchase your Hoodia products from a reputable dealer to avoid possible fake substances.
