Hoodia Gordonii: The Magic Cactus of Weight Loss

(ARA) - Since early 2004, the weight-loss and diet industries have been taken over by a cactus-like plant that has an incredible potential to help the overweight and obese reach healthy weight levels. The Hoodia Gordonii plant may, in fact, be the most effective natural weight-loss ingredient ever discovered.

An estimated 64 percent of adults age 20 years or older are considered overweight or obese, according to the 2005 Center for Disease Control statistics. It is no secret that American obesity has reached epidemic proportions, and the promising effects of Hoodia could revolutionize the fight against fat.

The Hoodia plant, native to the Kalahari Desert of southern Africa, looks similar to an average cactus but is classified as a succulent. The plant’s magic is contained inside an appetite-suppressing molecule that can trick the brain into thinking the body is full.

Typically, the glucose found in the foods you eat triggers the brain to send the “I’m full” signal. The active Hoodia Gordonii molecule works in the same way, but its effect is 10,000 times stronger than that of glucose. Therefore, your brain sends the “full” signal much quicker and longer, drastically decreasing hunger.

Perhaps the most important asset of Hoodia is the complete lack of side effects. Unlike many diet pills, those containing Hoodia appear to be entirely safe for the great majority of potential users. Initial studies found significant reductions in both appetite and intake among test groups (with no side effects reported) compared to the control groups.

While western science only recently discovered the power of Hoodia, the native San Tribesmen of the Kalahari have been utilizing the plant for thousands of years. The San found that eating Hoodia plants allowed them to venture out on daylong hunting parties without the need for nourishment. This practice undoubtedly played a significant role in the Bushmen’s ability to sustain their desert lifestyle. Now, scientists and laboratories across the world are quickly researching Hoodia and forming products that could greatly aid weight-loss across the board.

Hoodia’s appetite suppressing ability can reduce calorie intake by as much as 1,000 calories per day. Even without added diet plans or strict exercise regimens, Hoodia's power to significantly reduce hunger provides great potential for effective and lasting weight-loss.

With $40 billion being spent annually on weight-loss efforts, the market for Hoodia seems endless. As laboratories and scientists continue their studies, consumers must take care in doing their own research. With such profit potential, many so-called Hoodia products have already been debunked. TL Sciences’ Xhobatol Weight-Loss Formula with Hoodia contains only 100% pure South African Hoodia. It is an authentic and effective tool for weight-loss, one that has already helped thousands reach their weight-loss goals.
