What is Hoodia?
Hoodia gordonii is the botanical name for a leafless, spiky succulent plant that grows throughout the semi-arid areas of Southern Africa primarily the Kalahari Desert. The San (local inhabitants) have rationally used Hoodia stems to stave off hunger and thirst when on long journeys, as it acts as an appetite suppressant.
After years of careful research, scientists isolated several compounds in this all-natural food that was responsible for dramatic weight loss, P57, which has been widely reported, is but one of several chemical compounds found in the Hoodia succulent. Not only was it proven completely safe, it contains no stimulates that could contribute to the jittery feeling associated with weight loss products of the last decade.
Hoodia is registered as a protected species to prevent Bio-Piracy and can only be grown by a handful of commercial farms in South Africa owned by private farmers. In the wild, Hoodia takes 5-6 years to mature but is now being cultivated in as little as 2 years commercially in sustainable quantities and has become widely known for its effects as an appetite suppressant. To be eligible for export to the USA and all other nations, Hoodia farmers must obtain a C.I.T.E.S. certificate that is issued on a per export-shipment basis.
Why Hoodithin Works
The chemical constituents in HoodiThin work within the satiety center by releasing a chemical compound similar to glucose, but are up to 100,000 times more powerful. The hypothalamus receives this signal as an indication that enough food has been consumed and this in turn stunts the appetite. This pure organic Hoodia, contains a miracle molecule that, in effect, fools the brain into believing you are full, and even stops you from thinking about food.
Is there evidence that Hoodia Gordonii works as an appetite suppressant? Yes! For thousands of years the Bushmen of South Africa having been eating Hoodia Gordonii to fight off hunger during their long hunting trips. The appetite suppressant power of Hoodia Gordonii for the Bushmen is not a question; it is a simple fact of life. So while the Bushmen did not do formal clinical studies, there is thousands of years of real world evidence that eating Hoodia suppresses your appetite.
