What You Should Know
Hoodia Stack is yet another hoodia based diet supplement that claims to help users lose weight by suppressing the appetite. However, this product offers a bit more than many hoodia formulas because it includes green tea in the mix. This substance is a proven metabolism booster that can increase energy levels and help you make the most from your workouts. The product websites claims that Hoodia Stack can help you lose five pound within a week and contains the number one super food as rated by Oprah. However, after inspecting a list of the top ten super foods from Dr. Perricone on oprah.com, we did not find any of the Hoodia Stack ingredients on the list.
Hoodia Stack is sold on a website that reads much like an infomercial, making plenty of grand promises but providing little information to back up the claims. We are disappointed to find that a complete ingredient list and clinical research are not available to consumers. We are also skeptical of the claims that this product should only be used by dieters wanting to lose 15 pounds or more. This appears to be a hard sell approach that touts the product as almost a “miracle” weight loss supplement.
Hoodia Gordonii and Green Tea.
The website for Hoodia Stack supplies only two ingredients in the formula; hoodia gordonii and green tea. The hoodia supposedly comes with a certification that ensures it is authentic hoodia gordonii from Africa. This is important, since the active ingredient P57 is only found in this type of hoodia. However, it is difficult to ascertain whether the certification is real based on the copies provided on the website.
There is no doubt that green tea is an effective ingredient in diet supplements, since it has been proven to boost the metabolism and suppress the appetite at the same time. However, some studies suggest that green tea can render hoodia less effective when the two appear in a diet supplement together.
When customers sign up for the free trial offer that actually costs $5.95 in shipping and handling at the time of this review, they are signed up in an auto ship program. The program will ship a one month supply of Hoodia Stack every 30 days and charge the customer’s credit card almost $70. The company states that there is a “no return” policy for all purchases. Instead, consumers can cancel their order at any time by calling the customer service number listed on the website.
- The product contains green tea.
- There is a free trial offer available.
- A complete ingredient list does not appear to be provided.
- There are no returns on purchases.
- The combination of ingredients may create a less potent formula.
We like that this product contains the proven thermogenic green tea, although it may interfere with the effectiveness of the hoodia in the formula. With a high price tag and no return policy, we believe that consumers might be better off shopping elsewhere for their diet supplements.
