Hoodia Info

Hoodia gordonii is one of a group of succulent plants native to the semi-desert areas of southern Africa. This particular variety of hoodia was traditionally used for thousands of years by San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert. They ate the bitter tasting fleshy part of the stem to suppress their appetite and thirst through the long hunting trips that were part of their nomadic lifestyle.

Hoodia Benefits

Studies confirm Hoodia’s appetite suppressing effect, reducing hunger and food cravings and thus dietary intake. With less calories being consumed the body naturally starts using up its fat stores for energy.

Traditionally hoodia was used infrequently by the people of the Kalahari to treat indigestion and abdominal cramping, lift energy and improve mood.

Hoodia Side Effects

Because of hoodia’s thirst-suppressing effect, there is the potential to dehydrate. Always monitor your fluid intake while taking hoodia. Contraindicated during preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding because suppressing your appetite can lead to potentially unhealthy nutritional deficiencies for both mother and baby. Contraindicated for people with eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia for the same reason, and because using it may reinforce dysfunctional eating behaviours. Contraindicated for people with liver or kidney disease. Contraindicated in cases of diabetes or hypoglycaemia.

    For 9 months I'd been trying to lose the last 2kgs of the weight I gained during pregnancy, but I wasn't able to reduce my food intake below 1500 cal/day.I've been taking this product for 2 weeks & have managed to reduce my intake to 1200 cal/day without effort, using 1 capsule in the mid-afternoon. I still get hungry & eat meals, but I don't get hungry between meals, & I eat smaller meals & feel satisfied. There don't appear to be any side effects so far.
