What You Should Know
Hoodia Water, offered by Central Coast Nutraceuticals, claims to bring a fresh approach to hoodia supplementation. Instead of taking this substance in a capsule form, the ingredient is mixed into water or juice for an appetite suppressing beverage. As the name suggests, the hoodia in Hoodia Water is available in liquid form, and applied to a glass via a dropper.
The company claims that this makes the hoodia in their formula up to four times more potent than the standard hoodia supplements on the market today. It also states that this hoodia is absorbed more effectively by the body, meaning that the product will provide greater strength and last longer. However, CCN fails to provide clinical research or documentation to back up these claims. Hoodia Water is available on the product website, and is currently offered through a special promotional offer for $1. We will discuss the deceptiveness of this special offer a little later in the review.
According to the product website, the only ingredients in this product are hoodia gordonii, vegetable glycerin and deionized water.
We were unable to find the amount of hoodia that is found in this formula. This is a concern, since it requires a fairly large amount of hoodia to result in the desired appetite suppression. We have no way of knowing if there is sufficient hoodia in Hoodia Water to offer consumers satisfactory results.
As mentioned above, the company is currently offering a special promotional offer where you can try Hoodia Water for just one dollar. What isn’t mentioned until the fine print is that there is also a shipping charge of $4.95 that will also be charged to your credit card at the time the order is placed. In addition, if you do not contact the company within 20 days after placing your order, you will be charged the full price of the product, which is $38.95 at the time of this review. You will also be enrolled in an auto ship program, which will send you a month supply of Hoodia Water every 30 days and charge your credit card $39.95.
- The product claims to provide appetite suppression to aid in weight loss.
- Hoodia is a proven appetite suppressant.
- There is no scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of liquid hoodia over capsules.
- The company website is somewhat deceiving in their marketing practices.
- We do not know exactly how much hoodia is included in the formula.
- The product is fairly expensive.
Many people are on the hunt for hoodia based weight loss supplements because of the hype this ingredient has received. However, the popularity of hoodia has resulted in many products that are not able to deliver on their grand promises. We fear that Hoodia Water may fall into this category. With no way of knowing how much hoodia is in the formula and deceptive marketing practices on the product website, we believe consumers may be safer looking elsewhere for an effective diet supplement.
