Visitors: 155

Hoodia gordonii is a well-known diet pill that can help you lose weight. The diet pill was made from hoodia gordonii plant. It is a cactus-like plant from Kalahari Desert of South Africa.

Many are asking if this diet pill is effective enough to make you lose weight naturally. The truth is hoodia gordonii can make you lose weight naturally and quickly especially if you associate it with daily exercise and maintaining balanced diet. Yes, you need to do exercising daily, you can allocate at least 30 minutes of your time doing jogging, swimming, biking, dancing or going to the gym. You must eat foods which are nutritious. And make sure to drink plenty of water everyday, it would be better to take 8 to 10 glasses.

Hoodia gordonii is a bare spiky succulent plant which was used by San people in treating minor illnesses and infection and it is also used as appetite suppressant especially when the San people go out for long hunting. This plant naturally grows in South Africa and Namibia, when it about to matures, pale purple flowers will bloom and the flowers’ odor is like rotten meat. Typically, San people call the plant hoba.

It was last 1977 when South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) isolated the active ingredient of hoodia gordonii which called p57. The scientists were the ones who gave that name since it was their 57th project that time. CSIR gave Phytopharm a license and they collaborated with Pfizer to isolate p57. Due to the difficulty of synthesizing the active molecule, the development of hoodia was stopped, so Pfizer gave back the rights to Phytopharm.

Scientists tested p57 by rats, they injected the rats with p57 and they found out that the rats eat less than with those rats that weren't injected with the active ingredient found in hoodia gordonii. So, they came up to the conclusion that it works by making you eat less since it can trick the brain in telling you that you are full.

With this, it is a fact that it can help you lose weight and because of this, more and more people are taking it to lose weight naturally and effectively, since hoodia gordonii diet pill is all natural and without any harmful chemicals in it unlike other diet pills in the market.

Because of the popularity that hoodia is facing right now, the demands is high, that is why there are many manufacturers who produce fake products in order to supply the demands of consumers. But these fake products are just waste of money and won't do you any good. Your money will put into waste and you there is a huge possibility to have harmful side effects.

When buying hoodia gordonii, you need to buy with reliable company, one that can show you the certifications that proves they have the real products. Check out if the certifications are clear and understandable. Since the product doesn't need prescription, you can buy a month or a year's supply.
