If you havenít heard of Hoodia yet, you soon will
because it is being touted as the new miracle supplement
for safe, effective weight loss. Hoodia gordonii,
(Hoodia) is the botanical name for a cactus like plant
that grows in Southern Africa. Scientists have recently
isolated several compounds in this amazing plant that
are responsible for dramatic weight loss. This
all-natural appetite suppressant is also being applauded
for containing no dangerous stimulants that caused
adverse side effects associated with weight loss
products of the last decade. Read more about Hoodia How
It basically tricks the brain into thinking that youíre
full. The chemical constituents in Hoodia work within
the satiety center by releasing a chemical compound
glucose but much stronger. The hypothalamus in the brain
receives this signal as an indication that enough food
has been consumed and this in turn stunts the appetite.
Hoodia Research Scientists at the South African Center
for Scientific and Industrial Research were the first to
successfully prove that Hoodia contains a miracle
molecule that suppresses the appetite. Later, a human
clinical trial was conducted by scientists in Leicester
England. A group of morbidly obese men and women
participated. Half the group were given Hoodia and half
were given a placebo. At the end of 15 days, the group
on Hoodia had reduced their food intake by 1000 calories
a day. Given the average daily diet is around 2200
calories, this was a stunning success. Read more about

How was the Hoodia cactus secret discovered?
The active ingredient, P57, was not discovered by
accident. In 1996 the CSIR (Council for Scientific and
Industrial Research) was doing research on the food that
the local "Bushmen" or San ate.
The CSIR was amazed when they analyzed Hoodia gordonii,
the animals they where testing it on did not die or have
any side effect except weight loss. It was concluded
that the Hoodia gordonii succulent was non-toxic and a
natural appetite suppressant. By 1997 the CSIR had
isolated the bioactive compound in Hoodia that had the
appetite suppressing properties. They obtained a patent
and licensed P57, named P57 because it was the 57th
product the CSIR had spent funds on, to Phytopharm.

Why have I not heard of Hoodia before?
Commercial cultivation of the Hoodia started only a few
years ago, driven by the need for a natural slimming aid
that actually works. The SAN tribe's people of the
Desert have been eating Hoodia Gordonii for centuries to
reduce hunger and thirst on long hunting trips of
several days/weeks duration. Both food and water remains
a scarce resource in the Kalahari Desert.
How did research into Hoodia Gordonii get started?
Due to the tradition of food use of Hoodia plants,
certain species were included in a scientific research
project established by the South African statutory
council known as CSIR (Council for Scientific and
Industrial Research) to screen a large number of bush
foods. As part of the screening process, plants were
made and tested for toxic
effects. Surprisingly, it was observed that the 100%
Hoodia Aerial stem, NOT from extracts, caused a decrease
in appetite and body weight in animals.
Do all Hoodia plant species suppress appetite?
There are several Hoodia plant species that is said to
have some degree of appetite suppressant in them, but
ONLY the Hoodia Gordonii is the most potent and much
sought after one. Hence, there are many inferior
products out there. Hoodia products made from pulpy
leaf, 20:1, 10:1 extracts or concentrates, have minimal
effect, not only because it so diluted, but because all
the other supporting ingredients, such as Aloe and other
medicinal properties have been stripped away that makes

need to taken.

Why is Hoodia Diet Pills somewhat expensive compared
to other herbal slimming aids?
Two reasons: 1. South African Hoodia has proven to be
far more effective than any other known herbal slimming,
diet or weight loss aid; 2. The Hoodia plant is
difficult to cultivate and takes several years to mature
before harvesting. Hoodia herbs remain in very short
supply. It is a genus of succulent Aloe plants, not
cacti, in the family Apocynaceae that is widely used
traditionally by the San people of Southern Africa, not
only as an appetite suppressant, but also as a thirst
quencher and cure for severe abdominal cramps,
hemorrhoids, tuberculosis, indigestion, hypertension and
diabetes. Although the genus Hoodia is widespread in
southern Africa, herbarium records
indicate Hoodia Gordonii only grows in South Africa and
If Hoodia Gordonii is rare, is the source
Hoodia Gordonii is very rare and is protected by
national conservation laws in South Africa and Namibia.
It can only be collected or grown with a permit. Wild
stocks are also extremely limited so the South African
government has established plantations over the past 5
years to grow sustainable quantities of Hoodia Gordonii.
What ingredients are used in 400mg Hoodia Quick
Weight Loss Diet Pills?
100% Hoodia Gordonii (Core) powder, which is tabulated
into 425mg (400mg Hoodia Gordonii, 25mg for binding
agents and vegetable protein coating) tablets, with 90
tablets to a bottle.
What part of Hoodia do you use?
We only use the core, not the outer skin. There's no
benefit using the outer skin, which makes up to 40% of
the weight of the plant. Some manufacturers use the
whole of the plant in their processing. Check that the
company you deal with uses ONLY the core of the plant.

powder, as research points to it being the best source
material to use if to realize the appetite suppression
benefits that Hoodia Gordonii can provide.
NOTE: Our Hoodia Gordonii is botanically verified to
contain pure Hoodia Gordonii.

How does your Hoodia compare to other brands?
The market is currently flooded with Hoodia diet pills
and there are many claims being made that have not been
There are basically 4 different types of Hoodia;
1. Wild Hoodia Gordonii from South Africa - This is 100%
pure Hoodia Gordonii made by Mother Nature, discovered
and eaten by the San Tribe of South Africa. They eat the
Aerial Stem parts like a cucumber, which provides the
appetite suppressant and other herbal benefits, and
discard any pulpy leaf and flora parts. This is what
goes into our 100% pure product.
2. Outdoor / Greenhouse Cultivated Hoodia - Plants which
grow outdoors have the added vitamin benefit due to the
Sun exposure just as the naturally occurring wild Hoodia
plants do. Trying to grow a wild plant on farms, opens
up a serious challenge, especially for the Hoodia plant
that needs specific desert conditions. These farmers and
growers are faced with all kinds of pests and diseases
that they have to keep under control, in order for the
plant to thrive. Recent droughts have limited re-issuing
of Hoodia farm licenses.
3. Hoodia Extracts 20:1, 10:1, 1:1 - The other thing
about these extracts is that they claim to be 10:1 or
20:1 ratio of extract, and most claim 20:1. If you make
a 20:1 extract it means you are taking 20kgs of that
material to make 1, throwing away all but the active
ingredient. That would make it a very powerful material.
However, when you extract, and there are many herbal
extracts that are good, you take away a lot of the
supporting benefits, such as, the Aloe benefit, that I
mentioned previously. Some plants have great supporting
properties, but when they are extracted they are gone
and some of the extracts don't work as well without
4. Hoodia with fillers - containing other inexpensive
ingredients. Recent black market Hoodia was confiscated
as it was said to have sawdust as one of their fillers
and not a trace of Hoodia. 100% pure Hoodia, from wild
Aerial Stem, is most effective as a stand-alone diet
supplement appetite suppressant, there is no need to add
any chemicals or other additives. The San Bushmen simply
eat the cucumber like Hoodia stem in very small
