Hoodia 2000 TR Review
What You Should Know
Hoodia gordonii is derived from a cactus like succulent grown in the semi-deserts of South Africa, Angola, Botswana, and Namibia. On many of their long journeys across the desert, the San (local inhabitants of the Kalahari Desert) would cut off pieces of the clumping stems and eat them to prevent feeling hungry and thirsty. When the cactus like plants are mature enough for harvesting – which takes somewhere around five years – the clumps are gathered and processed. The once unknown molecule of the plant, now know as P57, has the ability to fool the brain into believing the stomach is not hungry or that it is full. The problem with products professing to contain 100% hoodia is that mosts do not. So how can you be sure if your hoodia product is authentic? Let’s see what Hoodia 2000 TR has to say about their hoodia product.
List of Ingredients
100% per Hoodia Gordonii (powder) 2000mg. Other ingredients: Magnesium Stearate, and Stearic acid.
P57 is the active ingredient molecule of hoodia gordonii plant. The steroidal glycoside stimulates the brain into believing it is not hunger or that it full. Since the ban on appetite suppressant products and energy boosters such as ephedrine, the popularity of hoodia based products has grown immensely. And while there are no known side effects associated with the use of hoodia, the use of hoodia in capsule and tablet form is still so new that the research is still inconclusive. It can be noted however that the San bushman have used the hoodia plant for over a thousand years without any known ill effects. The chemical makeup in Hoodia 2000 TR release a chemical compound similar to glucose, but the makers of Hoodia 2000 TR claim that it is 100,000 times more powerful. It is also believed that not only does hoodia suppress the appetite but it also elevates energy levels. On the down side, it has been reported that as many as 80% of products claiming to contain 100% hoodia are contaminated or counterfeited and contain little or no hoodia at all.
- A proven and effective appetite suppressant.
- No proven side effects associated with hoodia.
- Many products claiming to contain 100% hoodia are counterfeited (fake).
- The hoodia gordonii plant is in limited supply and requires a permit to harvest, therefore making the pure product rare.
- The lack of product research to assure product safety.
- There are no customer testimonials on the website.
The thousand or so years of use of the hoodia gordonii plant by the San bushman of the Kalahari Desert seems to prove the safety and effectiveness of the product. And with the ban on products such as ephedrine, this is welcomed news by the diet industry and those looking for the aid of such a product. Unfortunately, there is so much counterfeit product on the market that claims to contain hoodia, one cannot be sure of the purity of the product. And without unbiased lab testing on each manufacturers supply, it is almost impossible to assure the actual hoodia content.
