Hoodia Diet Pills - Tremendous Product and Excellent Fraud!
When it comes to the matter of weight loss, peoples always prefer tricky methods. Peoples don't want to learn "Diet Basics"; they don't want to follow healthy food habit; they hate to exercise. In fact many peoples are still looking for overnight results! And that is the reason for 100's of diet pills and weight loss supplements on the market.
For decades, the diet industry has been an all natural appetite suppressant with no side effects other than the intended weight loss! However diet pills became very popular within shot period of time. While many of these worked, they often came with a heavy list of side effects. After an initial flurry of excitement and sales, most were knocked off due to dangers associated with their use, and some were even banned.
The latest arrival on the Weight Loss circuit is an unprepossessing African succulent known as Hoodia Gordonii. Hoodia was cleared for sale in the U.S. in early 2004; it has been steadily making a name for itself as a powerful appetite suppressant that can help you lose weight. Its popularity was significantly boosted by reports on 60 Minutes, ABC News and BBC News.
As part of the BBC report, BBC's correspondent Tom Mangold, actually traveled to Africa to sample the hoodia in situation. He and his cameraman, who also tested the plant, both reported feeling pleasantly full for nearly 48 hours after eating a piece of hoodia gordonii.
Modern research has isolated an 'active ingredient' known as P57 in hoodia. Though the research is still scanty, it works by fooling the hypothalamus into thinking that there is more sugar in the blood than there actually is.
Does Hoodia actually work?
According to Phytopharm, the company that holds the patent on the process to extract P57 from hoodia, human subjects taking hoodia reduced their caloric intake by as much as 2000 calories a day. So figures are impressive. And so far the overall result is fine.
Is Hoodia Safe?
There again, the research is far too scant to make a reasonable decision on it. There are no known side effects - but it also hasn't been used outside one small tribe in Africa until the past two years. It's possible that there are side effects to long-term use.
Since Hoodia is endorsed by major News resources like ABC News and BBC News, scammers found it's extremely easy to sell junks in the name of Hoodia. Most of the hoodia supplements available on the market do not contain hoodia gordonii at all! Some contains dangerous chemicals.
Obviously it's hard to tell which Company sells genuine products and who don't. However here are some tips to protect you from Hoodia Scammers.
1) Consult Physician: Consult your doctor before taking hoodia diet supplements (Or any other supplements). This is particularly important for those who've been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes.
2) Don't be fooled with cheap gimmick! Hoodia is very expensive to plant. So it's virtually impossible to sell for peanut price. Be very cautious if you are purchasing from "Online Auction" sites.
3) Check Certificate: Only few companies have the right to sell hoodia products. Although certificate can be faked, it's important to check it out.
4) Contact Company: If you are planning to purchase hoodia from a well established website contact their customer care with some questions about hoodia. Your seller should be able answer your hoodia question if they are selling genuine products.
5) Money back guarantee: Genuine Hoodia Company's should offer at least 30 days of money back guarantee.
6) The Exercise factor: Genuine Company's must say that, basic exercise is important while taking hoodia. Don't be fooled with ads like "Take hoodia; eat whatever you want and lose 50 pounds within 30 days!"
7) Ask your contacts: For your satisfaction, enquire with your friends, colleagues and contacts (if they are overweight taken hoodia.)
My final words are; hoodia isn't a magic pill. It should not necessarily work for everyone. The effects of hoodia will vary from person to person depends on various factors. Like any other diet pills, hoodia should be used for short term treatment of obesity.
Again basic exercise and healthy food habit is must. Some peoples love to eat just about anything even if they aren't hungry! If you are an emotional eater, don't use hoodia; it simply won't work. And diet pills are not permanent weight loss solution.
