Hoodia is a cactus like plant that is actually a member of the succulent family and grows in the semi-deserts of South Africa.
The plant has been heavily marketed in recent years for its use in assisting with weight loss and it has become extremely popular. The San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert have used Hoodia for thousands of years to suppress their appetite and thirst when they embarked upon long hunting trips.

The plant actually takes about five years before the purple flowers appear and it can then be harvested. There are more than 13 types of Hoodia but only the Hoodia Gordonii plant seems to contain the molecule now known as 'P57' which is the molecule that acts as an appetite suppressant.

Hoodia is usually sold in the form of a pill which was created after much scientific testing found the plant to be very effective with weight loss and to have no negative side effects.

Hoodia works by sending a signal to the brain telling it that you are full and as such suppresses the appetite and then reduces the amount of calories that you intake each day.

This product has become extremely popular in weight loss circles as it has proven to be one of the most effective products available to assist in losing weight. It has had significant scientific testing done and it has proven to be completely safe to use.

So if you want to lose weight easily and safely then Hoodia may be the solution that you have been looking for.
