***Hoodia Gordonii is a plant that has been used by the indigenous people of the Kalahari desert as an appetite suppressant. Its main function was to quell the thirst and hunger that would affect warriors during long hunting trips. These warriors even fed their dogs slices of the plant to keep them from having interest in their food supplies. African natives still chew the leaves of the plant to stave off starvation and exhaustion.
The hoodia plant looks like a cactus even though botanically it is not a cactus, but it is often marketed as one.
Hoodia’s appetite suppressant properties were only discovered about thirty years ago. The South African Council was looking for indigenous plants that could be a source of food. Among the plants screened were Hoodia and experiments on animals confirmed the plant’s ability to cause weight loss without side effects.
Hoodia gordonii is very rare and is protected by national conservation laws in South Africa and Namibia. It can only be collected or grown with a permit. This is why it is so expensive.
