Hoodia Gordonii is a true gift from nature that promotes weight loss. Being overweight and obese has taken over the world like a disastrous epidemic over the last few decades and people are ready to do just about anything to get rid of these problems. This started an endless search for natural products, synthetic medicines, and diet plans that could help people lose weight. Hoodia Gordonii is one of the most promising finds in this endless search. Hoodia is a succulent, fleshy cactus-like plant of the Asclepiad family, which is an original inhabitant of the Kalahari desert in Africa. Hoodia Supplements: Hoodia Supplements are the dietary supplements that mainly contain Hoodia, along with other ingredients, and are used for losing weight. Hoodia Supplements, because of their Hoodia content, give the feeling of a full stomach and thus result in a loss of appetite. This in turn results in a lower intake of food, lower energy intake, utilization of the fat stored in the body and the subsequent loss of weight. Unlike many other weight-loss diet supplements, Hoodia is safer (studies are still going on to explore possibilities of threats to the liver) in the sense that it does not contain artificial stimulants. SUGGESTED USE: As a dietary supplement, take one (1) tablet two times daily. For best results, take early morning and early evening with 8 oz. of water or as directed by your health care professional. This product should be used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program. Do not exceed three (3) tablets daily. CAUTION: Do not exceed recommended dose. Pregnant or nursing mothers, children under the age of 18 and individuals with a known medical condition should consult a physician before using this or any dietary supplement. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
