Hoodia is the hottest diet ingredient on the market today. With the bans on ephedra and ephedrine several years ago, marketers and manufacturers went on a frantic search for a replacement product for their faithful customers. Hoodia was the answer. The appetite suppressant ingredient is taken from a cactus like succulent grown in the Kalahari Desert and has been used by the local tribesman (the Sans) for a reported thousand plus years. These locals found that by cutting off the clumping stems of the plant and eating them, they were able to ward off hunger and thirst for hours on their long hunting journeys. Since the hoodia gordonii plant is rare, special permits are required to harvest and import the plants. For this reason, there are many hoodia products on the market that are considered counterfeit because they contain no hoodia but claim to be pure in content. However, through our research, we have found that one independent researcher includes Desert Burn Hoodia to be authentic and certified.

List of Ingredients

Hoodia Gordonii 1000 mg.

Product Features

1000 mg (1 gram) of hoodia gordonii is the highest content of hoodia found in any hoodia product, and that’s what King Hoodia manufactured by Desert Burn contains. P57 is the active molecule that controls hunger and suppresses the appetite and is the only known active component in pure hoodia gordonii. There have been several reports in science publications that a dose of up to 3000 mg of hoodia can suppress the appetite for a full day for some users. As well as controlling hunger, hoodia has been associated with increasing energy and there have been no known side effects associated with hoodia. This is further evidenced by the fact that the Sans tribesman have used hoodia for over a thousand years with proven results.

While there are many products that claim to have 100% hoodia, Desert Burn is one that has been consistently certified to contain pure hoodia and their website allows for view of each certification.

King Hoodia by Desert Burn seems to be the real deal. The several certifications listed on their website attesting to the purity of hoodia content serves their product well. King Hoodia also comes in two choices – 750 mg and 1000 mg. Since the ban on ephedra, hoodia has been the answer to dieters’ desire for an appetite suppressant. Desert Burn comes through with a proven and pure product, but it also comes with a pretty high price tag. However, in this case, you get what you pay for.
