Hoodia gordinii wb diet hoodia side

By Patrick Beaufay

Hoodia Gordonii is a cactus like plant from the Kalahari Desert.

It's been used for thousand of years by the Bushment of South Africa to suppress their hunger during their long hunting trips in this desolate environment.

For them it was a fact of live – to survive a long journey you chew Hoodia Gordonii.

In the desert, they don't do clinical studies on plants and substances – they test them in the real world.

There are thousands of years of evidence that Hoodia Gordonii works to help you avoid hunger.

Of course, for the Western people, clinical studies are a must,and millions of dollars have been spent studying it – but what proof is there that it can work?

In November 2004 Leslie Stahl reported on CBS's 60 minutes and said,

"So how did it work? Stahl says she had no after effects – no funny taste in her mouth, no queasy stomach, and no racing heart. Leslie also wasn't hungry all day, even when she would normally have had a pang around mealtime. Leslie also reported no desire to eat or drink for the entire day."

Now for a news anchor to report something as a success – a good omen for Hoodia.

Even the BBC tested Hoodia.

Tom Mangold visited the Kalahari Desert in 2003 and ate a half a banana sized piece of Hoodia Gordonii. He said "The plant is said to have a feel-good almost aphrodisiac quality, and I have to say, we felt good. But more significantly, we did not even think about food. Our brains really were telling us we were full. It was a magnificent deception.

Dinner time came and went. We reached our hotel at about midnight and went to feed without food. And the next day, neither of us wanted nor ate breakfast. "

Tom Mangold reported that it was almost twenty four hours before his full appetite returned. It's very rare, as you know, for the media to be so positive, particularly about a food supplement. It's usual for them to search for the faults and the scandal.

Phytopharm, the company that own the patent on Hoodia Gordonii completed a full double blind placebo controlled study on overweight volunteers.

The results of this study proved that those who took the P57 Hoodia extract had a significant reduction in both body fat and calorie intake with no side affects!

The Bushment have eaten Hoodia Gordonii for thousands of years with no ill effects

It is thought that Hoodia fools the brain into thinking it is full when you are not through imitating the effect glucose has on the nerve cells in the brain.

Dr. Richard Dixey from Phytopharm explains that the P57 Hoodia extract works by making the nerve cells within the hypothalamus that sense glucose sugar fire as if you were full.
