Hoodia - An Elixir that Fights Obesity Part 1
Humanity is always in search of a wonder drug that ends all physical ailments. While it is a wishful thinking yet, there are areas where the dream is almost accomplished. One such problem that has got an answer is obesity.
Obesity is the excessive deposition of fat in the subcutaneous layer that increases the weight of the body. It creates an imbalance, renders the body inefficient in terms of normal physical activities, and runs the risk of catching fatal diseases like cardiac disorder. What if there is a natural cure of obesity?
With the discovery of Hoodia, a natural ingredient obesity is no longer a major problem. Hoodia Gordonii is a cactus originally used by the Bushmen belonging to region around Kalahari Desert. These undernourished people used the cactus to repress the desire for food during their hunting expeditions.
Why Hoodia is a wonder drug?
Scientifically speaking, glucose is the basic energy releasing substance. Hoodia contains a molecule that is exactly 10,000 times more active in comparison to glucose. There are nerve cells within the brain that judge glucose sugar. When they realize the presence of glucose, they charge up the body as if it has taken food. Thus, Hoodia diminishes hunger and the person does not need food for a considerable period.
Hoodia is coined as the 'new miracle diet ingredient' and no wonder it is a natural miracle. It lowers the food intake by 30% to 40% and this astonishing figure can really bring back the obese in figure. Hoodia strikes on the root cause by lowering the appetite. When one does not feel the appetite, he or she is unlikely to take food.
The benefits of Hoodia
1. Hoodia is very effective in minimizing weight. It reduces the food intake by 1000 calories a day.
2. Hoodia is a completely natural ingredient. The tablets formed from it are made by concentrating the extracts of the cactus plant.
3. It reduces the appetite without any ill effects.
4. It lends the feeling that the stomach is full.
5. When the urge for food is minimal, the intake of junk food, one of the primary causes of obesity, is also reduced.
6. It keeps the body charged with energy, so one is charged up even after reducing the food intake considerably.
An experiment conducted on an obese group with sedentary work revealed that they were able to minimize their food intake by 1000 calories a day by using Hoodia. Any negative effect of Hoodia has not been found yet and that makes it an ideal choice. Excessive use of Hoodia may cause some harm; food intake should not be completely substituted with Hoodia. Food is an essential requirement of a living body and nothing could replace it.
Thus, this extract, which served the African tribe, San to combat hunger, is ready to serve its new users, the tremendously overweight people to combat the hazards of obesity. It is a wonder drug with miraculous effect.
