Everyone that spends time on the internet knows that there are many scams out there and it doesn't seem to matter what subject you are looking for there will be someone there trying to rip you off. Unfortunately the Hoodia market isn't any different and there are many Hoodia scams out there. In this article I will talk about how to know if you are purchasing a real Hoodia product and how that product can help you lose weight.

How do you know if Hoodia is real or fake?

As with most things there are people out there that have produced fake Hoodia products and try to sell them as the real thing. Pure Hoodia Gordonii is grown in South Africa and sellers of the genuine product need to have the certificates required to be able to sell it.

So if you are looking to purchase Hoodia then you must make sure that the seller can provide the certificates required to sell this product. There are two certificates being the C.I.T.E.S. certificate and the Authenticity report.

If a seller cannot show either of these certificates then the product they are selling is likely fake.

What is the difference between fake and real Hoodia?

100% pure Hoodia Gordonii is the product that has been tested scientifically and has had clinical trials run on it to prove its effectiveness and also its safety.

If you purchase a fake Hoodia product then you are not guaranteed that it will be effective in helping you lose weight and you cannot be guaranteed of its safety.

Both of these reasons are very good reasons to stay clear of the fake product and make sure that you only buy genuine Hoodia.

How does Hoodia actually work?

Hoodia Gordonii contains a molecule called P57 which sends a signal to the brain telling the brain that you are full, thus suppressing your appetite. As a result you don't eat as much and so your calorie intake is much less.

It is advised to use Hoodia in conjunction with a healthy diet, but you have the huge advantage of not being hungry so it is very easy to stick to a healthy diet.

Hoodia has been proven over thousands of years to be very effective as an appetite suppressant and as long as you buy a genuine Hoodia Gordonii product then you should lose weight quite quickly.


The only Hoodia scam is that there are fake products out there claiming to be the real thing. If you purchase from a certified seller and buy the genuine product then you will see amazing weight loss results with Hoodia.
