Those seeking the benefits of Hoodia Gordonii weight loss products should be aware of what these products are. Hoodia Gordonii is actually a cactus that grows in South Africa. It’s been used for hundreds of years by the local people to help stave off hunger during long hunting trips. There are several members of the Hoodia Gordonii family so it’s important to ask before buying a product, ‘Is this Hoodia Gordonii?”
The cactus is the only plant in the family that’s been found to have the appetite suppressing effects it’s famous for. The plant contains a chemical which has been labeled, P57, which acts in the brain by telling the body that it’s full. It’s much stronger (10,000 times stronger) than the chemical our bodies produce to tell us we’re full. So the typical dosage of the plant is twenty parts per every part Hoodia Gordonii an hour before mealtime. It’s been shown in studies to reduce average caloric intake as much as fifty percent. So be careful of taking this product for long periods of time as you may actually end up underweight and experience a completely different set of health problems.
A recommended dosage of Hoodia is 50-200mg. The part of the plant that’s been found to contain P57 is the heart of the cactus. Some companies will sell Hoodia Gordonii at a surprisingly cheap price and the reason they can afford to do this is because they dry and powder the entire plant rather than just the heart. So you are really paying for the whole plant rather than just the part that contains the appetite suppressant. Make sure to ask before buying what part of the plant the manufacturers are using.
