Hoodia Gordonii

Are You Considering the Hoodia Patch? Read This!

Hoodia gordonii has been used for thousands of years by the San tribe (also
commonly known as bushmen) of South Africa to decrease appetite. The
bushmen use the hoodia by chewing the root while on long desert expeditions.

The appetite controlling features of hoodia gordonii were discovered in the
1990's when a South African laboratory known as CSIR did a study about the
diet of the San bushmen. Hoodia was tested by being fed to animals, who
subsequently lost weight.

Hoodia works by affecting the hypothalamus, a gland located at the base of
the brain that regulates numerous bodily functions and signals, including
hunger. Hoodia works in the same way that glucose does. However, hoodia
has been found to be thousands of times more efficient in controlling hunger
impulses.

There are many different products on the market to choose from. You can
find hoodia gordonii in pill form, liquid form, and spray form. But perhaps
the most exciting new product available is the hoodia patch.
