Phaseolus Vulagaris Extract, Gymnema Sylvestris, Hoodia Gordonii, Yerbe mate (leaf) and Chromium polynicotinate.
These ingredients are blended to create the carb blocking, energy enhancing formula found in CarboHoodia. Phaseolus Vulgaris is the natural extract from the Northern White Kidney Bean that has been shown to inhibit the body’s production of the enzyme amylase that breaks down carbs. As it seems, if the body doesn’t break down the carbs for storage, they pass unused through the body essentially enabling you to intake carbohydrates as any person would, without fear of them accumulating along your thighs and hips! Gymnema Sylvestris is regarded as an herb that may be used to lower blood sugar levels. Hoodia Gordonii has been used by Bushmen in the desert to ward off starvation on long treks with little available food it seems to send a message to the brain that the body has been fed and is content even when it hasn’t. Yerbe Mate is a healthy alternative to coffee, and contains a stimulant. Chromium Polynicotinate is said to enhance the action of insulin in the human body.
This product is supposed to give you a bit of energy and keep your body from storing glucose in fat cells. By impairing the body’s ability to breakdown and store carbohydrates as fats this product forces the body to use up its stores, thereby lowering your body weight.

We have heard about the effectiveness of the Hoodia countless times since its discovery. I would be weary though of a product with so little support from its manufacturer. The website doesn’t tell ANY specifics about the product. It simply implies that any “reputable” distributor can distribute the product. It doesn’t even list the ingredients. I had to search another website and find them on my own.
