Everything to Know About the ‘Wonder Plant of the 21st Century’—Hoodia Gordonii

It should not surprise you to learn that the obesity rate in South Africa has skyrocketed over the past decade. Tipping the scales, South Africa has the highest overweight and obesity rate in sub-Saharan Africa. Our beautiful nation has finally fallen into a major health disaster. Branded as a ‘growing epidemic of obese adults’, not only are 82% of all South African women over the age of 45 overweight or obese, but 40% of all men over the age of 35 are not very far behind. So what’s the solution?

While you could wake up at 5 am each morning to join boot camp, eat lettuce leaves and cucumber sticks, you could also get yourself on Hoodia Gordonii. For those of you who don’t know about Hoodia, we will explain why the demand for this super wonder plant has become the world’s most treasured weight loss supplement.

What is Hoodia Gordonii?

Used for thousands of years by one of the world’s oldest and most primitive tribes – the San Tribe in the Kalahari Desert—Hoodia is a natural plant grown from a succulent cactus used before trekking into the heart of the desert where water and food were scarce. The hunters would chew the plant to increase their energy levels, but what really caught the attention of the weight loss industry was its incredible appetite suppressing properties. The San hunters would often go without food for days while on their hunting expeditions and would chew on raw Hoodia to curb their appetite so they wouldn’t suffer hunger pangs.

How does Hoodia Gordonii work for weight loss?

Hoodia was first researched in the 1960s, but it was only in 1977 when the active ingredient in Hoodia was discovered. Known as P57, they found this glycoside to release large amounts of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the body. When broken down, researchers further discovered that this miraculous molecule sent out signals to the brain to trick the body into feeling full.

Today, Hoodia Gordonii is manufactured and marketed as a powerful appetite suppressant for weight loss and obesity. We use the dried stems and roots to make pills, capsules, chewable tablets, tonics, and teas and powders that suppress hunger and help to reduce weight and fat percentage. Highly praised as the wonder plant of the 21st century, Hoodia is today’s answer for those who want to burn fat and look and feel slimmer and healthier.

Curbing the appetite and reducing caloric intake so that the body uses its own fat stores to meet its energy needs, Hoodia completely eradicates any cravings for food, which means no more unnecessary snacking, binge eating late at night or over-consumption at dinner time. Perfect for those who are obese or for those trying to shed a few kilograms, Hoodia completely shuts down appetite. In fact, you won’t even think of food when you’ve consumed Hoodia. However, for those who desperately want to burn fat fast, Hoodia is best used with an excellent weight loss plan and exercise routine.

Are there any side effects?

A true gift from nature and the wonder weight loss plant of the 21st century, over the past decade, there has been a significant demand for Hoodia Gordonii. Whereas raw Hoodia has shown side effects, such as a dry mouth and liver problems, processed Hoodia has shown no side effects. However, its interactions with prescription medications have not been fully explored, which means it’s important to consult your general practitioner before taking it for weight loss. With that said, the quality of Hoodia is not always consistent. In fact, many national and international findings suggest that some products sold as Hoodia are not even Hoodia, which is for it’s always best to purchase your Hoodia Gordonii from a reputable supplier such as Herbex Health.
