What is Hoodia
Diet pills have been popular for many years, allowing easy weight loss without resorting to extreme dieting or excessive exercise. It is only recently that scientific evidence has begun to suggest that a new type of diet product known as a slimming patch could actually be more effective than diet pills for weight loss.
One particularly popular diet pill is appetite suppressants made from the cactus extract Hoodia Gordonii. Containing the active ingredient p57, Hoodia was used by the san Bushmen to prevent hunger pangs when one hunting trips, going without food for hours.
People taking Hoodia reported appetite suppression leading to natural and safe weight loss. Particularly useful for those who overeat or snack frequently, by limiting the amount of food you eat weight loss naturally follows.
Hoodia diet patches
Recently, Hoodia Gordonii was used as an ingredient in diet patches, a weight loss aid that is usually applied once a day in the morning and uses trans-dermal technology to deliver weight loss ingredients through the skin and into the bloodstream.
Slimming patches are particularly useful for those of us who forget to take the right dosage of diet pills at the right time (You usually have to take appetite suppressors half an hour before meals, which is easy to forget if you have a busy lifestyle). Sticking one patch on in the morning is much easier than remembering to take slimming pills.
Research estimates that slimming patches can be up to 95% more effective than diet pills as the ingredients are not broken down by harsh stomach acids and the digestive system, and are instead delivered straight into the bloodstream to start working.
It is clear that taking the powerful appetite suppressing effect pure Hoodia Gordonii has along with the superior absorption rate diet patches have makes a highly effective weight loss product.
Choosing a Hoodia patch
Not all Hoodia patches are created equally; in the early days of slimming patches some Hoodia patches contained only 10mg of Hoodia. This dosage is not sufficient to give any significant appetite reduction.
Many diet patches do not contain 100% pure Hoodia Gordonii, instead some are full of additives and fillers that inhibit the effectiveness of the patch.
Some Hoodia patches do not take the South African Hoodia Gordonii that was used by the san Bushmen. Almost all clinical trials into the effectiveness of Hoodia focused on South African Hoodia.
If you are looking to buy a diet product that is even more effective than Hoodia diet pills, be sure to choose one that contains 100% pure South African Hoodia Gordonii, with a good amount of hoodia in each patch.
