Hoodia Gordinii, is that for Real ???
Hoodia Godinii, is that for Real???
There is a lot of talk about Hoodia. But with all these info on internet do you know if it it really works.
Hoodia Gordinii comes from a cactus plant in the kalahari desert in South Africa and Namibia. People there suck on the plant and they feel less hungry and thirsty.
Some scientists have located the molecule responsible of this effect and they gave the name P57. The absorption of the Hoodia Gordinii gives the same effect than the glucose but with a stronger effect. I have read a few times this information but I have not sure about it: Hoodia Gordinii have an effect 2,000 more stronger than the glucose. A satiety signal is sent to the hypothalamus and the appetite is really lower.
In fact some serious studies have been done by the Dutch food conglomerate Unlever and Phytopharma a daughter company of the US well known pharmaceutical company Pfizer. Most of the candidates have noticied instead of consuming what they normally do their calories where about in half.
The result to lose weight is quite good but it is not specified what king of Hoodia was used and it is quite good to know:
- There are other Hoodia plants but only the Hoodia Gordinii has this effect
- The Hoodia supplements are not regulated by the F.D.A. (Food and Drug Administration)
- Only the Hoodia dex-l-10 has a permit from the department of agriculture in South Africa and claiming this it is genuine Hoodia Gordinii
NOW HERE IS THE TRICK. Like the Hoodia Gordinii extract is quite expensive, some manufacturers of those pills use other Hoodia extracts (from other Hoodia plant). In this case those pills donít contains this P57 molecule and they are therefore without any effect. They only specify Hoodia in their article and product. In this case, drop it. YOU ARE JUST IN FRONT OF MANUFACTURERS WITHOUT ANY SCRUPLE.
But when it is as well mentioned Hoodia Gordinii I am quite scrupulous and suspicious. Are you very sure those products contain the real Hoodia Gordinii ??? There perhaps are a few correct companies but who knows. I have for you a few advices in this internet jungle:
- Internet pharmaceutical portals which are selling other products like valium, cialis, viagra, just drop it. They are only there to make profit and there are quite specialized to spam people in an huge way
- Compare the price of different Hoodia Gordinii pills. As the Hoodia Gordinii Extract is quite expensive, the genuine Hoodia Gordinii pills canít be too cheap
- For the time being, only the Hoodia dex-l-10 can give the security that real Hoodia Gordinii is used. Or let me know if you know other correct manufacturers with the righ proof
- Unilerver in his diet division has in mind to deliver an Hoodia Gordini pill but not before the end of the research and it seems it will come in 2008-2009 and here with the reputation of the company this is quite a huge level of warranty!!!!!
