Hoodia gordonii comes from a cactus in South Africa. The cactus root was used by tribesman out hunting to reduce hunger for long periods of time. Traditionally, the root is chewed. When this story started gaining popularity, interest in hoodia grew. Supplement manufacturers started offering hoodia supplements to suppress hunger. The products flew from the shelves, but science has something to say about hoodia and appetite suppression. Hoodia gordonii is clinically proven to have no more effect on hunger than a placebo in human trials.
Conjugated linoleic acid may help increase lean muscle and decrease weight, slightly. There is an off-set effect so the dieter does not see any weight loss on the scale, but body fat percentage may improve. This effect is most often tested in athletic participants, not the average dieter.
Green tea leaf extract is a healthy addition to any diet. Aside from increased metabolism, green tea extract is proven to promote optimal health and immunity. There is only 250 mg of green tea in Irwin Naturals Healthy Hoodia Action. This is about 100 mg less than the suggested dose.
Weight loss claims are associated with a reduced calorie diet and exercise program. The dieter will not feel any less hungry, but the green tea could have a slightly stimulating effect. EGCG, found in green tea, increases metabolism in both caffeinated and decaffeinated varieties.
