Hoodia Gordonii - A Miracle Plant?

By Ron Edwards

Over the last few years, dieters all over the world have been starting to take notice of Hoodia diet supplement products. Many dieters indeed consider Hoodia Gordonii a miracle plant, as it has been naturally warding off hunger and thirst for years now. The following paragraphs will discuss the plant and it's appetite suppressant properties, as well as some of it's history.

What is Hoodia Gordonii?

Hoodia Gordonii is a plant that thrives in hot and dry weather conditions of the South African Kalahari desert. The plant itself is often mistaken as a member of the cactus family, due to the spikes that cover the entire plant. It also blooms large flowers, which put off a very foul, and strong odor. While there are many varieties of this particular plant, the Gordonii variety is the only one to have served as a natural appetite suppressant for centuries.

Many years ago, African Bushmen would chew on the Hoodia Gordonii plant before and during long hunts through the desert. Sometimes they would take it with them on their journey, and eat it on their way. This helped them to ward off hunger and thirst, while enabling them to hunt for longer periods of time without food. It was also a regular staple, during times of famine, to help suppress their hunger. Other common uses of the plant were:

to help increase libido
to help treat diabetes
to help treat hypertension

They also used it to relieve stress, as well as to treat upset stomachs.

Hoodia Weight Loss Supplements

Having made its way out of Africa, Hoodia weight loss supplements are now being manufactured in order to help dieters everywhere. Natural Hoodia products, like HungerAway by HoodiaPharm, are now available to give us the same natural appetite suppressant being used for centuries now, by the people of South Africa. When added to any weight loss plan, products like HungerAway can increase your chances of success! Hoodia weight loss supplements naturally suppress your appetite, and aid in eliminating how much food you eat in a 24 hour period. Eliminating snacks has never been easier!

Dieters everywhere are getting word of this fairly new natural appetite suppressant. Hoodia weight loss has achieved notable mentions on several national television programs. These television programs include:

Today's Show
60 Minutes
Oprah Winfrey

Hoodia weight loss has also been mentioned in many written publications, including the Los Angeles Times.

How Does It Work?

There is a natural molecule present in the Hoodia Gordonii plant, which fools the brain into thinking we are full, even if we haven't eaten any food. The active molecule, named P57, has been identified and tested to prove it's effectiveness. While clinical studies have shown that P57 is indeed effective in helping to decrease the daily calorie intake of obese people, it has been impossible to synthesize. Because of this fact, take care to ensure your natural appetite suppressant is 100% pure Hoodia.
