Weight Loss With Hoodia

Weight Loss With Hoodia
By Chester Ku-Lea

No one knows for sure, but it's believed the San People of South Africa used Hoodia for most or all of the 27,000-plus years they lived in the Kalahari. It was not until 1937 when a Dutch anthropologist observed them munching on the cactus to stifle fierce hunger pangs during long hunting trips that Hoodia first came to the attention of the outside world. Then, for inexplicable reasons what was then and remains today the most powerful natural appetite-suppressant known to man sat on the back shelves for decades to follow.

The new diet pill that kills your appetite, ups your mood, and gives you waves upon waves of energy. When western drug companies learned the San people of South Africa have been using the Hoodia plant to successfully stave of the worst hunger pangs imaginable for days at a time without unwanted side effects, the push was on to bring this product to market.

- Only the Gordonii variation of Hoodia has appetite suppressant abilities.
- Hoodia tricks the brain into thinking you've eaten, and makes you feel full.
- Hoodia may work right away, or may take several weeks.
- Key results of Hoodia reported include a reduced interest in food, delay in the time after eating before hunger sets in again, feeling full more quickly, and a general feeling of well-being.
- Hoodia Gordonii is not a stimulant, and has no known side effects.
- Hoodia appears to be safe for most people.
