San-Hoodia Gordonii Supreme Diet Pill for Appetite Suppression - FAQs

Hoodia Gordonii is a cactus-like plant that is described as a succulent and grows in the Kalahari desert of South Africa.  This plant has been used to control hunger and thirst by the San bushmen of South Africa for centuries.


Question:  How does it work?
Answer:  Hoodia is a nutritional supplement used (for the most part) for appetite suppression.  It should be used in conjunction with calorie restriction and regular exercise for healthy weight loss.  Using this product helps people create a 500 to 1,000 calorie deficit per day (3,500 to 7,000 per week) which equates to a loss of 1 to 2 pounds of body fat per week.  This equates, in most people, to 5-10 pounds per week in actual weight due to water weight ... water weighs approximately 8 pounds per gallon.  This plant extract acts on the brain by sending signals telling the body it is satiated.  There are no reported side effects from the usage of Hoodia other than lack of hunger and weight loss.


Question:  Is there scientific support?
Answer:  South African scientists were testing Hoodia and discovered the plant contained previously unknown molecules that cause a sensation of fullness (satiety).  Results of human clinical trials in Britain suggest that this active ingredient could result in appetite suppression and reduce dietary intake of calories by up to one (and even two) thousand calories a day.  The active ingredients work by fooling the body into thinking it is full even when it is not.


Early animal experiments in free-feeding rats have shown that Hoodia consumption reduced the amount that they ate.  Rats are greedy with a voracious appetite and will eat almost anything.  Changing the feeding habits of rats with Hoodia was a interesting find.  Appetite suppression in rats have been shown repeatedly in experiments in the United States, South Africa, and England.


After the rat experiments, human clinical trials were in a strictly enforced environment.  Overweight people were left to eat as much as they liked.  Half of this group took Hoodia and half were given a placebo.  Fifteen days later, the subjects receiving Hoodia significantly reduced their calories.


Question:  What is the history of Hoodia Gordonii in the USA?
Answer:  Western scientists became aware of the plants potential about 75 years ago.  It was recently that the active ingredients of Hoodia have been patented by the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research.  Subsequently, a British company called Phytopharm acquired the rights to develop and commercialize Hoodia components as an appetite-suppression and weight loss aid.


Question:  Are all Hoodia supplements the same and/or the same quality?
Answer:  No.  Hoodia plants are native to the deserts of South Africa.  There are about 20 species of which the gordonii contains the natural appetite suppressant.  Many supplements from around the world contain cactus-like material.  They come from Mexico, USA, or China and are not the real thing.  However, they sell it as Hoodia.


Question:  Will the supply of Hoodia for dietary supplements be sustainable?
Answer:  Yes.  There is South African Government economic sanctions being put on exports to control and maximize the supply chain.


Question: Does anyone test the raw materials?
Answer:  Stella Labs of New Jersey is a bulk supplier and has been used as a source of material found in pure Hoodia.  They are an independent laboratory and verify that the raw materials contain the official gordonii strain.


Question:  Is Hoodia for everyone?
Answer:  Hoodia is to be used by mature, non-pregnant, non-lactating adults only.


Question:  Can it be taken with drugs?
Answer:  We're not sure since we were not able to find any contraindications in the scientific literature.  Let your Doctor know that your are taking Hoodia for appetite suppression.  We know of no side effects from using Hoodia other than weight loss along with absence of hunger.


Question:  How did the popularity of Hoodia increase so quickly?
Answer:  Simply, it works.  When something works, the Media (Television, Radio, Newspaper, etc.) eventually gets wind of the information and then spreads it like wildfire.  The "60 minutes" piece is a good example.
