Hoodia Gordonii is Africa's latest cash crop, priced almost like a narcotic at $40 an ounce. The plant, which grows wild in the Kalahari Desert of southern Africa, was once used by indigenous tribes to suppress hunger and thirst when hunting. Recently, it has been discovered that Hoodia Gordonii contains a very powerful molecule that works as an appetite suppressant. This molecule is known as P57.

With the discovery of the molecule P57, found in Hoodia Gordonii, drug and food companies are scrambling to capitalize on its benefits. P-57 works as an amazing appetite suppressant by mimicking the effect glucose has on the brain and tricking your body into thinking it's full.
