Hoodia Powder – Miracle – Yes Or No

If you are one of the millions of people who is overweight and have to deal with health issues associated with being overweight, you are no doubt anxious to lose the weight as quickly, and safely, as possible. For this reason you may have found yourself wondering if a weight loss supplement could help and hoodia is probably at the top of your list. Hoodia comes in many forms such as capsules, liquids, chewable bites, teas, and even hoodia powder. This article will give you a general overview of what hoodia can do for you as well as some general knowledge about this ‘miracle’ plant.

Hoodia is a plant found in the deserts of South Africa. This plant was used by the natives for centuries to naturally suppress their appetites and thirst when they had to make long journeys across the desert. They claimed that it not only decreased their appetites and thirst but that it also increased their energy levels.

Scientists have isolated the compound that they believe is responsible for the appetite suppressing abilities of the plant and named it P57. This compound is thought to work by sending signals to the brain and tricking it into believing that the body is full thus eliminating the desire for food or drink and ultimately leading to weight loss.

While there are over 20 species of the hoodia plant, only the hoodia gordonii has been shown to possess the appetite suppressant compound. When you are considering buying a hoodia supplement, make sure that you carefully look at the ingredient labels to find out how much hoodia is in each serving. The amounts can range from as little as 250 mg all the way up to 1,000 mg.

The powder form is favored by many since it can be mixed in with a favorite drink and can be absorbed more quickly into the system, thus making the benefits show up faster than with other forms of the supplement. Two types of powder are used: whole plant powder and core powder. Using the whole plant results in a poor product because the actual compound that is useful in appetite suppressant isn’t found in various parts of the plant such as the roots. Core powder is taken for the heart of the plant where the actual compound is found and therefore makes a much higher concentrate and will offer superior results… but it will also cost more.

When you are deciding between brands make sure that you stick with only those that offer C.I.T.E.S certification which indicates that the hoodia gordonii is 100% pure and undiluted.

There is nothing wrong with trying to use all the tools you can to help you get the weight loss results you want and need, and one of those options is pure hoodia powder. Be sure that you are cautious about the brands you use and the expectations you have. Hoodia gordonii can help you keep your appetite in check so you eat less and lose weight, but you still have to do your part. You will need to provide your body with enough nutritious food and water along with regular exercise to really achieve healthy and permanent weight loss.

Hoodia Gordonii 500 – Is It Safe And Dependable

There have always been new miracle diet supplements that seem to come into favor and disappear as quickly, usually under a cloud of suspicion that they have very bad side effects. Hoodia gordonii 500 is one of the newest in weight loss supplements to show up and so far, proves to be one of the most dependable and safe for achieving permanent weight loss.

Hoodia is only found in the deserts of South Africa and has been used for centuries by the San Bushmen who used it to suppress their appetite and thirst before they headed into the desert. The bushmen claim that the hoodia not only keeps their appetite and thirst in check but that it also gives them higher energy levels.

Hoodia is also called xhooba, khoba, ghaap, and hoodia cactus (though technically the plant is a succulent not a cactus). There are over 20 varieties of hoodia but the only one shown to help decrease appetite is hoodia gordonii. The supplements made from hoodia can vary greatly in their strength, they can start at 250 mg and go all the way up to 1,000 mg though 500 mg seems to be the popular choice since it isn’t too strong or too weak… it’s just right!

Hoodia has been featured on many news programs such as the BBC and 60 Minutes, it has been proven to be very effective for many people so it’s not a scam.

The compound in hoodia that is thought to be the ‘magic bullet’ of appetite suppressant is called P57 and is only found in the core of the plant, not in the skin or roots. For this reason it’s important to know what part of the plant the hoodia comes from when purchasing a supplement. The actual amount of P57 is considerably less in supplements that use the whole plant than in those that only use the core, therefore the price (and effectiveness) will also be less.

When purchasing hoodia look for a certification seal on the label stating that it is 100% pure hoodia. There are many unscrupulous vendors out there who will charge a premium for an inferior product, you have to do your homework. Check the label carefully before you buy.

Hoodia is renowned for it’s lack of serious side effects, though as always, the longer it’s in use the more things that may show up. Since it’s been used by the bushmen for centuries it would seem that it is safe, but remember the bushmen don’t have the same diet as we do and they don’t take it everyday or mix it with other supplements.

The one potential risk you do have to be on the lookout for is not eating or drinking enough to keep your body healthy and functioning properly. This appetite suppressant can also suppress your thirst so you have to remember to drink plenty of water, even if you don’t feel thirsty.

If you feel like you could use a little help with your diet and exercise program, hoodia gordonii may be just the thing. When it comes to choosing the best dosage, many people opt to start in the middle, with hoodia gordonii 500 since they don’t want their appetite suppressant to be too powerful. Start there and see if it works best for you, and good luck with your diet program.
