What You Should Know
Hoodialife is a nutritional supplement that contains hoodia, the popular appetite suppressant that is produced from the African hoodia gordonii plant. Hoodialife is all natural and stimulant free, and a part of each sale is paid in royalties to the San Bushmen of the Kalahari. Hoodia is thought to safely and effectively curb the appetite, with no negative side effects. The hoodia in Hoodialife is said to be genuine, government sanctioned and legally imported, and the makers offer a C.I.T.E.S. permit to verify that. There is a permit and certificate of analysis available for viewing on the www.hoodialife.org website, but it is difficult to verify those documents pertain to this product specifically.
List of Ingredients
Hoodialife contains hoodia gordonii, maltofdextrin and magnesium stearate.
One bottle of Hoodialife contains 60 capsules, and the recommended dosage is 2 capsules, twice a day, 1 hour before eating a meal. However, it is not clear how much hoodia is contained in Hoodialife, because one area of the website says that each capsule of contains 400 mg, but the list of ingredients states that 2 capsules contain 500 mg. This inconsistent information is a bit troubling. There is an indication on the website that it may take up to 14 days to see the full appetite suppressing results of Hoodialife. The makers of Hoodialife state that the results of Hoodialife are a reduced desire for food, increased energy and weight loss. These results are said to happen because the hoodia contained in Hoodialife has molecules that indicate to the brain that the body has eaten and is satisfied, therefore suppressing the desire to eat. This is a similar to the effect that glucose normally has on the brain, only it is thought that hoodia has a much stronger effect. One bottle of Hoodialife currently costs $49.95. Something worth noting is that Hoodialife is possibly involved in a case before the Federal Trade Commission, concerning spamming customers in order to market the product.
- Hoodialife is stimulant free.
- Questionable amount of hoodia contained in each capsule.
- Although certification is said to be available regarding the authenticity of the hoodia contained in Hoodialife, the actual documents available for viewing by the customer don’t really certify anything when examined closely.
There are many products containing hoodia available on the market today. Indications are that products containing authentic hoodia gordonii from Africa may be effective aids in responsible weight loss efforts. The difficulties arise when trying to select a hoodia product, because there are many fraudulent products from companies trying to cash in on the hoodia craze. The Hoodialife website contains general information regarding the science behind hoodia as an appetite suppressant, and supposed certification that Hoodialife is the genuine article. The price of Hoodialife is a little expensive, as one bottle would last only 2 weeks if taken as directed. Very careful consideration is recommended before purchasing Hoodialife, as there may be better choices out there.
