While various researchers are continually at work on the crisis of obesity, a latest hope has been discovered for millions of people. A plant called Hoodia, which grows in South Africa, and may be the first ever natural appetite suppressant .
The Hoodia Gordonii plant grows in the Kalahari Desert region of South Africa. It looks like a cactus but in fact is not from the cactus family, but succulents family. The Hoodia plant has been used for centuries by the San People of the Kalahari to stave hunger and thirst for weeks, months and even years across the desert. Hoodia stops hunger and treats sickness.
Hoodia contains a special substance, which acts on the brain by sending a signal to tell the body that you are full and does not need food.
According to a report by World Health Organization (WHO), obesity is rapidly reaching global proportions. More than 1 billion people are overweight with 300 million of those morbidly obese (double their normal weight). The medical community reports extreme weight gain is directly related to severe medical problems including heart disease, diabetes, cancer and the onset of strokes. There are no known side effects with Hoodia Gordonii.
Hoodia gordonii is very rare and is protected by national conservation laws in South Africa and Namibia. The plant is also protected by CITES, an international trade convention on certain species (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna) which add some additional control over the hoodia gordonii being internationally traded.
Hoodia diet pills give you the freedom you have always wanted, as it has no side effects and stave off hunger effectively. In terms of its overall appetite-suppressing potential, Hoodia is just another product in the queue, but has the unique advantage of being natural.
