Hoodia Gordonii Plus
By now, you must have heard about a powerful appetite suppressant, Hoodia Gordonii. You must have heard the good along with the bad. Does this work or doesn’t it? We say, yes it does, as long as you hold the genuine product and not one with false Hoodia claims.
What Is Hoodia Gordonii Anyway?
For centuries, the Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert had to go on long arduous hunts to survive. The scarcity of food and water in the inhospitable desert terrain had led them to discover a succulent, spiny plant, almost like a cactus, which allowed them to go for days, thriving on minimal appetite and thirst. The plant is the Hoodia Gordonii.
How To Tell Whether A Supplement Has Genuine Hoodia Gordonii
There are a number of different varieties of Hoodia but only the Gordonii species carries P57, the special substance responsible for the appetite suppressive qualities of the plant.
Because of the scarcity against the high demand of Hoodia, the South African government chose to step in and regulate its export. The Western Cape Conservation Authority of South Africa has given its license to only a few companies who can receive the Hoodia Gordonii material. Only authorized companies are given two documents to attest their access to the authentic Hoodia Gordonii plant. These are the C.I.T.E.S. Certificate and the Analytical Report.
If a supplement claiming to have Hoodia content cannot show these two certifications, then either its claim is false or the Hoodia it claims to have is not of the Gordonii species. In any case, the supplement in question will not help you toward your weight loss goals.
Hoodia Gordonii Plus is a supplement that boasts both certifications and thus contains the appetite suppressing Hoodia it says it has.
How Hoodia Gordonii Plus Busts Excess Weight
With one hundred percent authentic Hoodia Gordonii in its ingredient list, Hoodia Gordonii Plus acts first and foremost as an appetite suppressant. The “Plus” on its name refers to other effective add-ons to its ingredients which make this supplement an “all-in-one” weight loss pill.
Hoodia Gordonii Plus is not just an appetite suppressant. It is also a fat burner, a metabolic booster, and an energy enhancer.
What’s In A Pill?
Each pill of Hoodia Gordonii Plus contains:
- Hoodia Gordonii, 400 mg. – pure, one hundred percent plant derivative
- Magnesium, 250 mg. – the role of this ingredient is unclear with regard to weight loss. The official website of the supplement simply states its inclusion as good for general health
- Garcinia Cambogia Extract, 50 mg. – herb with an active appetite suppressant of its own called HCA or Hydroxycitric acid. This herb is also thought to decrease the body’s tendency to convert carbohydrates into fats.
- Green Tea Extract, 50 mg. – a fat burning ingredient owing its thermogenic properties to caffeine
- Proprietary Blend, 100 mg. – a complex of plant derived enzymes. The official website is mum on this ingredient. There are no explanations why this is included.
There seems to be no side effects from Hoodia Gordonii, garcinia extract and the amount of magnesium included although there may be side effects from the caffeine content in the green tea. Caffeine sensitive dieters should bear this in mind. As for the proprietary blend, we hope there are no ill effects inherent in it.
The Bottom Line:
Hoodia Gordonii and Garcinia Cambogia are two powerful appetite suppressants. Blended together, they should make Hoodia Gordonii Plus one highly effective calorie restrictor. The addition of thermogenic green tea could really give you a good kick start in your weight loss program.
It must be reiterated that Hoodia Gordonii Plus is no miracle pill. You still need to get on with changing into a healthier diet and a more active lifestyle. This supplement just offers very good help for losing excess weight; but, maintenance of a trimmer you needs additional work and discipline on your part.
