Weight Loss – Pure South African Hoodia Gordonii

Certification for 100% Pure South African Hoodia Gordonii

Worldwide fascination with hoodia has bred strong curiosity within the mainstream, but do most people know what real hoodia is? What the difference between traditional Hoodia gordonii and the many cheap knock-offs and weak hoodia products that have arrived on the scene? There is some misunderstanding and the need exists for clarity in defining authentic hoodia from the fakes and weak altered versions.

Real Hoodia is RARE and EXPENSIVE. It takes approximately 5 to 7 years for the Hoodia succulent to mature and provide appetite suppressant qualities. The African government has limited the amount of Hoodia it exports and the number of suppliers to receive it. Because of the growing awareness and popularity of this miracle herb, rip-off products that contain very little or no authentic Hoodia in them are beginning to flood the marketplace.

Hoodia Gordonii Plus uses only 100% pure South African Hoodia from the Kalahari Desert and are proud to display the certificates to prove it. Their Hoodia is licensed by the Western Cape Conservation Authority of South Africa and is certified to be 100% Authentic.

There are two certified documents required to prove the authenticity of pure South African Hoodia. They are the C.I.T.E.S Certificate and the Analytical Report.

How Hoodia Works :

Hoodia gordonii, also called hoodia, xhooba, khoba, Ghaap, hoodia cactus, and South African desert cactus and is causing excitement for its ability to suppress appetite and promote weight loss – 60 Minutes, ABC, and the BBC have all done stories on hoodia.

This plant can be found in the semi-deserts of South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and Angola. It grows in clumps of green upright stems and is actually a succulent, not a cactus.

It takes about 5 years before hoodia’s pale purple flowers appear and the cactus can be harvested. Although there are 20 types of hoodia, only the hoodia gordonii variety is believed to contain the natural appetite suppressant.

Although hoodia was discovered relatively recently, the San Bushmen of the Kalahari desert have been eating it for a very long time. The Bushmen, who live off the land, would cut off part of the hoodia stem and eat it to ward off hunger and thirst during nomadic hunting trips. They also used hoodia for severe abdominal cramps, hemorrhoids, tuberculosis, indigestion, hypertension and diabetes.

In 1937, a Dutch anthropologist studying the San Bushmen noted that they used hoodia to suppress appetite. But it wasn’t until 1963 when scientists at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), South Africa’s national laboratory, began studying hoodia. Initial results were promising — lab animals lost weight after taking hoodia.

The South African scientists, working with a British company named Phytopharm, isolated the active ingredient in hoodia, a steroidal glycoside, which they named p57. After getting a patent in 1995, they licensed p57 to Phytopharm. Phytopharm has spent more than $20 million on hoodia research.
