What You Should Know
Hoodia 1000 is a weight loss supplement offered by KRK Supplements which contains the popular ingredient hoodia. Hoodia is believed to be a powerful appetite suppressant which works by fooling the brain into thinking the body has eaten and is full. Hoodia 1000 is said to be unique because it contains 20 times more functional hoodia than other hoodia products on the market. The hoodia contained in Hoodia 1000 claims to be certified as authentic, legally exported and imported hoodia from South Africa.
List of Ingredients
Hoodia 1000 contains hoodia gordonii, gelatin and microcrystalline cellulose.
KRK Supplements claims that Hoodia 1000 contains 20 times more functional hoodia than similar supplements. This refers to the 20:1 wet to dry ratio of the whole plant concentrated to powder. Basically, that means that 20 pounds of whole hoodia plant is concentrated to one pound of powder that is used to make Hoodia 1000. Because of this ratio, the makers of Hoodia 1000 claim that it contains 20 times more functional hoodia than if they had ground the plant up water and all. Hoodia 1000 does not contain any specific part of the hoodia gordonii plant, but contains the whole plant. Some proponents of hoodia have suggested that specific parts of the plant are more effective at suppressing the appetite than others, so this point is important to keep in mind. The product label states that Hoodia 1000 contains 50 mg of 20:1 hoodia, which translates into 1000 mg of hoodia per serving.
- Hoodia 1000 is a relatively inexpensive hoodia-containing product, sold by KRK Supplements for $19.00 per bottle.
- No product guarantee could be found.
- Advertising does not provide any clinical verification of the effectiveness of Hoodia 1000 as an appetite suppressant.
Hoodia 1000 is one of many nutritional supplements available today that claims to contain pure, 100% hoodia gordonii. This is a popular ingredient, and some studies have shown that hoodia is an effective appetite suppressant. The advertising for Hoodia 1000 does not cite or provide any clinical research that support the claims presented about Hoodia 1000. The suggestion is made that because Hoodia 1000 contains the whole hoodia plant instead of a particular part of the plant, it is a more desirable product. However, popular opinion suggests that whole hoodia is not as effective an appetite suppressant as just the root of the plant, so Hoodia 1000 then becomes less attractive to those in the market for a powerful hoodia-containing weight loss pill. Hoodia 1000 does not contain any fat-burning ingredients; therefore there is not a risk of the negative side effects usually associated with those types of products such as increased heart rate and blood pressure. Hoodia 1000 costs $19.00 per bottle, and there is a free shipping offer on the KRK website, as well as a 10% discount offer.
