you that this is the most powerful Hoodia available. Just look at the
ingredient of all the other brands and you will find that they are
diluted with other stuff. Hoodia POWERSLIM has nothing but Hoodia in it.
Its that simple. Hoodia is a bitter-tasting cactus-like
plant. The full name is Hoodia Gordonii. Hoodia is a Succulent botanical
which resembles a "cactus". For this reason, hoodia is often mistaken
called the "african hoodia cactus". If you must know all the technical
data it is Genus: Trichocaulon and Family Name: Asclepiadaceae. Full
grown Hoodia plants can grow over 6 feet tall.
What is Hoodia Gordonii?
Hoodia Gordonii is a stem succulent that looks like a cucumber that can
reach up to 1 meter in height. Hoodia presents flesh coloured flowers
that give off a very strong and unpleasant odor. The flowers bloom
within the first 4 or 5 months of growth. When the flowers fall off a
seed horn or pod grows where the flowers fall off.
Hoodia thrives in the high deserts of the Kalahari region of South
Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Angola. The majority of hoodia plants are
in South Africa and Namibia. Hoodia is also being cultivated in Arizona
in the USA and Australia. Hoodia Gordonii is a very hardy desert
succulent plant that can grow in many sandy areas in the world provided
the temperatures don’t drop to freezing.
Although there are other species of hoodia (about 35 in all), the
gordonii is the only one that contains the appetite suppressing
molecule. Hoodia Gordonii is a cactus-like plant and is part of the
plant Apocynaceae or Aloe family.
How does Hoodia work?
There isn't much mystery as to how hoodia gordonii is supposed to work.
It's really very simple and acts basically the same way if you eat food
slowly. Diet experts for decades have been telling people to eat slowly
so that the body has time to send a message to the brain telling it the
stomach is full. The message sent to the brain is by way of a glucose
spike that says you've eaten enough.
Hoodia is marketed around the world as an appetite suppressant that
sends a 'false' glucose spike to your hypothalamus fooling your brain
into believing you are full, even when you are not.
While there have been no clinical studies done with hoodia gordonii as
an appetitie suppressant, our experience has been that many people feel
a greatly reduced interest in food and push themselves away from the
table when they are about halfway though a meal. This results in a lower
caloric intake and aids in portion control as well.
Facts About Hoodia and Why You
Should Care About It?
Our story starts about 100,000 years ago.
We know that sounds amazing, but the Bushmen of Southern Africa (also
called "the San") have hunted, lived off the land and traveled across
the Kalahari Desert for over 100,000 years. The Bushmen frequently go
out on long hunting trips and chew on a local plant to reduce hunger and
increase energy. The plant of course is Hoodia. Incredibly, by chewing
on Hoodia, the San have been able to go days without eating and still
remain strong and energetic.
Hoodia is a bitter-tasting cactus-like plant. The full name is Hoodia
Gordonii. Hoodia is a Succulent botanical which resembles a "cactus".
For this reason, hoodia is often mistaken called the "african hoodia
cactus". If you must know all the technical data it is Genus:
Trichocaulon and Family Name: Asclepiadaceae. Full grown Hoodia plants
can grow over 6 feet tall.
So, for thousands of years the Bushmen have been eating Hoodia Gordonii
to decrease appetite and increase energy. While the Bushmen knew all
about the powers of Hoodia, it was not until the mid 60's that the first
research was done on Hoodia as an appetite suppressant. Even then, it
took another 30 years for South African laboratories to isolate the
specific appetite suppressing ingredient in Hoodia. This ingredient was
called P57 (or p-57) and licensed to the British pharmaceutical company
By December of 2001, and $20 million later, Phytopharm had the first
clinical study that showed obese people who took P57 (extracted from
Hoodia Gordonii) ate 1,000 calories fewer per day with no adverse side
effects! Simply put, if you took P57, your desire to eat was extremely
reduced. Things looked so promising with P-57 as a diet drug, that
Pfizer purchased the worldwide marketing rights from Phytopharm for a
reported $32 million to develop and market P-57 based diet pills.
So I can just buy P57 (hoodia) from Pfizer and lose weight?
If only things were that simple. The twists and turns of the Hoodia saga
are the things movies are made of. While, we will get into all the
details throughout this site, let's continue with the brief overview…
No, P57 is not available in pill form and probably never will be.
Pfizer's goal was never to harvest P57 from Hoodia plants. They thought
they would be able to study the P57 molecule and make a synthetic
version for much less than the cost of harvesting Hoodia and extracting
P57. It turns out that making a synthetic version of P57 was cost
prohibitive. Pfizer looked at the data and in turn pulled out of their
deal with Phytopharm, believing that a P57 drug was not viable.
Does Hoodia take To Work?
"It takes time to kick in, but you will like it when it does"
Hoodia Gordonii is an all-natural plant material. Herbal products do not
work like drugs that are geared to work every time for everyone.
Herbals can sometimes take time to start working, so we suggest the
1. Make sure you give the product an honest trial. Take one full bottle
before you decide whether or not it is working for you. Hoodia also has
a very subtle effect as there are no stimulants, so you won't feel much.
2. Try varying your dosages to get it right for you. Every person is
different and differing absorption rates. Ordinarily we suggest a dosage
of 1 capsule in the morning and 1 in the afternoon about 1 - 2 hours
before dinner. To do a loading dose, take 2 capsules in the morning and
2 in the afternoon for the first 3 days. If you find that hoodia starts
to work on you right away or within the first few days, disregard the
3. We try to make our products cost effective for our customers, so we
also suggest taking note of when your problem eating times are
throughout the day and night. If you don't have problems overeating
during the day, then just take the afternoon dosage.
We recommend marking the date on the calendar that you start taking
hoodia and try not to think about how you feel, if you are losing weight
or whether you are hungry or not.
Some people feel that if it doesn't work within a few days, then it
isn't going to. Try not to defeat yourself before you even get started.
You can do this, but you have to stay positive and give the product time
Set a date of 30 - 60 days from the date you begin using hoodia as your
trial period and stick with it. You must take hoodia every day to
achieve the results you are looking for. Please be patient as hoodia can
take some time to kick in as previously mentioned. When it does kick in
you will be pleasantly surprised to find your interest in food is
Don't Be Deceived By
Claims of 20X (20:1) Hoodia
IS NO SUCH THING AS 20X's STRONGER OR 20:1 EXTRACTS
Extract strength, 20 times or 20:1 extracts are not real. The appetite
suppressing molecule in hoodia disintegrates when extracted so it is
impossible to produce hoodia stronger than the pure plant powder. Some
companies are told they are buying an extract and the supplier charges
them a little bit more for it. These extracts DO NOT exist and either
the company selling the products is falsely advertising or the supplier
lied to them. Buy only 100% pure hoodia gordonii that is guaranteed and
proven to be pure. (20:1 or 20 times stronger means that they would use
20kgs to make 1kg of extract. The cost of hoodia at 100.00/kg would mean
that the cost for 1kg of extracted hoodia would be 20 x 100.00 =
2000.00/kg and they would have to sell 1 bottle for almost $500.00.)
You will see sites that list the 'Top Hoodia' products. These lists are
always owned by the company that produces the product listed at the top,
or all of the products on the list are made by the same company. All of
these sites are fake, they don't pay for testing the products that they
trash on those sites and don't give you the real picture. Do your
homework and Google any company you want to do business with to get more
information about them. Do not deal with companies that have no phone
number or address listed on their site.
We are providing you only
with what the creator gave to mankind. You cannot do better than that. Hoodia earned its popularity from the

hunting trips to reduce hunger and increase energy. By the use of the
Hoodia plant they were able go days without eating and still
remain strong and energetic. This is a natural product that we
feel serves a great purpose.
