Are There Any Hoodia Side Effects?

By: Andrew_Hansen1
You may have heard of hoodia, a hot new weight-loss product that is receiving a great deal of attention and acclaim. It is claimed that hoodia helps you lose weight by getting the message to your brain that you're not hungry.

Just imagine it... This means no diet (within reason) eat a much more varied array of food and have your brain constantly sending the message that you are full and require no further sustenance... The result? Reportedly the weight starts falling off. The impulses that cause over eating are no longer being stimulated and so the condition loses its effect and you lose weight. Sound too simple?

Found in the Kalahari desert in South America, hoodia is a plant known as a succulent that resembles a cactus in appearance. It is a fairly thin, prickly plant that often features large blossoms that are peachy-pink in
color. There are different species of hoodia, and the one that offers weight loss potential is hoodia gordonii.

There are no documented hoodia side effects such as racing pulse, nausea or shakiness found in other diet pills on the market. This may be because hoodia is a naturally occuring plant, not a pharmaceutical drug. There are so many diet pills/drugs/supplements on the market nowadays its easy to get confused between which are natural and which are pharmaceutical, which are available and which are prescription. Since there are no hoodia side effects, it is a popular choice for appetite suppression
and weight loss.

Consumers should know that the only authentic hoodia available comes from the western cape of Africa. Although drug companies are currently studying ways to create a synthetic version of hoodia, no such version exists at this time.

There are numerous products out there claiming to contain hoodia. If you choose one of these products, be advised that since hoodia is only one of the ingredients, you may experience side effects caused by other ingredients in the supplement.

The best choice, even though it is the most expensive one, is to purchase pure hoodia. Scientists say that hoodia can be up to 100,000 times more effective than glucose in controlling the hunger signal in the brain.

Phytopharm is the corporation that holds the patent for P57, the component of hoodia that accounts for it's remarkable appetite suppressant qualities.

So if you're seeking weight loss with no harmful side effects, hoodia just might be for you!
