What You Should Know
Recently, there has a been a huge surge of interest as well as speculation about the appetite suppressing benefits of Hoodia, cacti native to the African Continent. There are about twenty different species, but Hoodia Gordonii is the one that contains the natural appetite suppresent. Gordonii is very rare and only thrives in high temperatures, taking years to mature enough to be used. For these reasons, Hoodia Gordonii is extremely expensive; meaning any weight loss product containing the pure form should be on the high end of the price range. The vague advertising for Gold XTRM indicates that it contains pure South African Hoodia Gordonii, however there is no certificate or any other form of proof from an independent source to validate this claim. The manufacture has also added ingredients to their blend that will enhance the supplement, which would not be necessary if the Hoodia Gordonii was as pure as they claim it to be.
Propriety Blend: Hoodia extract, Ginseng, Green Tea, Theobromine, Banaba and Bioperine (black pepper extract.)
Pure Hoodia Gordonii is known to curb appetite and act as an appetite suppressant. There are no known side effects and the substance is not regulated by the FDA. Ginseng is commonly used to improve energy levels, but this is a claim that has yet to be validated by scientific research. Green tea is known to be a powerful antioxidant and has been used by the Chinese to treat various conditions, including aches and poor digestion. Theobromine is stimulant used to treat headaches and also acts as a diuretic. Banaba leaf extract called Corosolic Acid believed to combat various symptoms of diabetes. Finally, Biopeprine is the trademark name for piperine which is derived from the black pepper. It is believed that piperine promotes the absorption of nutrients into the body.
Gold XTRM costs $149.00 for a six week supply and is sold through one website that advertises itself as a weight loss center that promotes holistic weight loss education.

- Contains caffeine
- No authentication verifying the credibility of the quality of the hoodia Gordonii used, which is imperative.
While Gold XTRM contains all the ingredients that are hot right now in the weight loss industry such as Hoodia and Green Tea extract, this product appears to be more of an effort to make money on the part of the one company which sells it rather than creating a viable product which will help those struggling with weight loss achieve results. If this product contained the pure, unadulterated Hoodia Gold XTRM claims it does, it would be able to stand on its own without the green tea and other additional ingredients.
Regardless of the weight loss product you choose to consume, keep in mind that they only work in tandem with a healthy lifestyle through healthy eating, plenty of hydration, and consistent exercise.
