Hoodia in a diet pill brand may well help most dieters lose unwanted weight very successfully. Extracts have been found to cause dramatic weight loss with regular use and there are many testimonies of former and present users which support this claim. Even well known personalities and celebrities confess to using this product. Its efficacy was even featured on many reputable television programs such as ABC, BBC, 60 Minutes, NBC Today, and Oprah.
They were first introduced as diet pills in the market around 2003- 2004. Thereafter, it quickly went up the list of effective and safe natural weight loss products. It is extracted from a succulent plant named Hoodia Gordonii (found in South Africa). Long before its use was discovered by scientists residents in that region, more specifically in the Kalahari Desert have been putting it to good use as appetite suppressants. They would pull out the source plants and eat them while on long journeys and hunts in order to suppress hunger and thirst.
This kind of supplement naturally works in the body as an appetite suppressant. Hunger signals are blocked from being received by the brain. With that, a person feels less hungry and there is a feeling of fullness and dieters eat less as they have no desire for food. He or she may also experience thirstiness (the only side effect one experiences from usually using hoodia). Therefore, it is important to remember to have an abundant intake of fluids to prevent dehydration throughout the day.
These diet supplements also have other positive effects which include an increased energetic feeling throughout the day, faster digestion of food and fat, and a lesser craving for food (this will greatly benefit the overweight and the obese).
Not all pills, however, will cause weight loss. The Gordonii species is the only type that will work for losing weight. That is because it is the only plant that actually and actively contains the appetite suppressing component named P57. It is therefore absolutely critical to check bottle descriptions for the ‘gordonii’ component before making a purchase. Also, it is best to buy diet tablets which contain a certification seal. This seal will guarantee you that the extract came from South Africa.
These diet pills are not cheap, nor should they be for the results that they give. Products sold very cheaply may mean they are fake or contain harmful chemicals and little to no Gordonii at all. Look around for varying prices and product constitutions before buying anything or read a comprehensive Hoodia review site. Have yourself medically evaluated before using them to lose weight, if necessary. Ask for advice on the proper milligram intake per day and ask how long you can take the diet pills if you have any doubts.
