Dont Buy Cheap Hoodia Until you Read This

Ever since the start of time, people who want to lose weight have been looking for a magic bullet that will transform their body quickly and safely. Over the last twenty years there have been weight loss programs, workout machines and diet pills that were advertised as the answer, only for there to be a let down. Now, finally there might be real ray of light at the end of the tunnel, because of Hoodia, an ugly cactus-like plant grown in the semi-desert of South Africa. The demand for hoodia has sky-rocketed, with news stories about it being featured on CNN, CBS News and even Oprah. People from all over the world are raving about its seemingly amazing appetite suppressing qualities. There have even been reports that celebrities are using it to get back in shape.

In fact, in all human trials to date, the results have been very favorable. Hoodia has be shown to make you feel full. But that's not the best part. So far there have been no known side effects yet.

But the news is not all good.

Because there is overwhelming demand for Hoodia, a lot of unethical opportunists, who have been quick to see the possibility of making a quick buck, have set up shop, especially on the internet, to sell cheapened, diluted Hoodia. A lot of sellers that are selling discounted versions are getting good business, because it seems like such a bargain  but most, if not all, of these sellers are selling powder puffed versions that will do nothing for you in terms of weight loss.

Why's that?

It's simple. Most suppliers on the internet cut corners when producing their Hoodia. They think that they can get away with not doing with it takes to make sure the Hoodia remains pure, and contains the P57 molecule (which is what causes Hoodia to be such a potent appetite suppressant).

So, what are some examples of ways that these unethical Hoodia suppliers cut corners to make their product cheaper?

Here are three ways they do that:

1)They mix cheaper (and often, harmful) ingredients with their Hoodia to make it cheaper to sell. As I mentioned, pure Hoodia has shown to work in human trials to date and has no known side effects. The same thing cannot be said of many other ingredients that internet suppliers mix in their product. Worryingly, a lot of these other ingredients have been proven to cause headaches, dizziness and other nasty side effects. By adding these other cheaper ingredients, it makes the whole package cheaper but far less effective.

2) They sell Hoodia from Mexico or China or somewhere else in the world Hoodia can be grown. The only problem is that this Hoodia has no effect on weight loss. The only type of Hoodia that has proven to have the P57 molecule that helps with weight loss is the Hoodia Gordonii species grown in the Kalahari Desert in South Africa. Buying Hoodia from other places is a lot cheaper, because there's very little competition for it. It is expensive to buy it from the Kalahari, because it is a protected plant. You need to go through the process of getting a specific type of legal license to be allowed to export the Hoodia Gordonii out of South Africa.

3)They don't have strict, quality controls to ensure their Hoodia retains its purity and effectiveness when processed. Your Hoodia Supplier should be able to produce certification proving they are using industry standard manufacturing processes, at a minimum.

And that's just a start.

Once you really think about it, there are so many ways that unethical suppliers can create the impression that they are a good honest company, when really they are nothing more than a scam.

It doesn't cost much to set up a slick website and shipping. It does though, cost money to ensure that the Hoodia supplied is pure 100% South African Hoodia Gordonii with the active P57 molecule though.

To a naive searcher, some of these discounted Hoodia websites will probably look like a genuine internet bargain. But you as you now know, you need to be careful. You need to be wary of the 3 points raised above. And you need to know how to tell a good supplier from a bad one.

So, you need to know how to tell if a seller gets their stock from a genuine certified exporter of South African Hoodia Gordonii. You need to know how to tell whether a supplier is selling a 'diluted' version of Hoodia mixed with other ingredients. You need to know how you can instantly tell if a supplier has the required quality controls to ensure their Hoodia remains pure. And there's a lot more you need to weigh up about a supplier before you even consider taking your wallet out and actually buying from them.

If you don't do these things, chances are that you will be spending good money after bad, and paying for diet supplements that don't really help you with any weight loss. It will be money just thrown away.
