What You Should Know
Hoodia Gordonii is the newest hot topic when it comes to weight loss these days. Ever since researchers found out that South African’s have used it for centuries as a way to ward off hunger during long hunting trips, the diet industry has taken consumers on a wild ride. Does it all sound all too familiar? In times past we experienced the same frenzy when other so called diet miracles were introduced to the market such as Phen Fen and Ephedrine. People were quick to jump on the ban wagon in hopes that over night their extra pounds would magically disappear with little to no effort at all, only later to find that there were serious side effects associated with those products. Well here we are again, discussing a new controversial diet supplement which to date has little scientific research behind it. However we will once again take a closer look at Hoodia Gordonii marketed in this supplement known as HoodiaSmart.
List of Ingredients
The full list of ingredients is not published on the official website for HoodiaSmart.
According to the HoodiaSmart official website, the diet pills contain an extract of Hoodia Gordonii. Hoodia Gordonii is said to be up to 10,000 times as potent as glucose which sends a signal to the brain that you are in a state of satiety, or most commonly referred to as not hungry. The manufacturers of diet pills which claim to contain 100% Hoodia Gordonii say that it is the safest most natural appetite suppressant available on the market. 100% pure Hoodia pills which are rare and difficult to find do not contain any ingredients such as amphetamines, diuretics, or Ephedrine. It is unknown if HoodiaSmart contains any of these elements since the full list of ingredients are not listed on the website. Due to high demand, the sale of Hoodia Gordonii is restricted only to those who have a permit to take it out of the country so most supplements which claim to contain the plant are bogus.
- Hoodia Gordonii has not been extensively tested.
- Potential long term side effects of Hoodia Gordonii are unknown.
- Hoodia Gordonii is restricted by the South African government.
- The official website for HoodiaSmart does not publish the full list of ingredients.
With most diet pills, weight loss typically only occurs while taking the product. Once dieters resume eating regular food the weight comes back. To date this remains an issue because the manufacturers of these types of products do not promote a long term lifestyle change such as healthy eating and exercise as the way to permanently keep the weight off. Unfortunately products such as HoodiaSmart will continue to plague store shelves because consumers still demand a quick weight loss solution. No one wants to put in the time and effort that it takes to shed the pounds. Come on people! How many times must we be fooled before we get it? There simply is no miracle pill. Just do the work and you’ll see real results.
