After much research by South African scientists and western pharmaceutical companies have proven that Hoodia has no known side effects and no stimulants. Hoodia Gordonii grows in the high deserts of the Kalahari Desert region of South Africa and although there are other species of Hoodia, the Gordonii is the only one that contains the all-natural appetite suppressant.
South African scientists have been testing the Hoodia plant since 1996 when they discovered the plant contained a previously unknown molecule, dubbed P57 by Britain s leading pharmaceutical researcher, replicates the effect glucose has on nerve cells in the brain fooling the body into thinking it is full, even when it is not. Hoodia s appetite suppressing molecule is said to be almost 10,000 times stronger than glucose.
Hoodia works by mimicking the effect glucose has on the nerve cells in the brain fooling the body into believing it is full, even when it is not. Results of human clinical trials in Britain suggest that hoodia could reduce the appetite by up to 2,000 calories per day.
While many people feel the appetite suppressant kicking in sometimes within 20 minutes of ingestion, it is felt that the general population responds to hoodia within 1 - 2 weeks of starting the program. Some morbidly obese people (more than double their normal weight), who describe themselves as eating machines since childhood, say that although they felt the appetite suppressant kicking in after 2 - 3 weeks, it took a few weeks before they realized their interest in food was significantly decreasing, thereby helping to change life long eating habits.
In an interview with ABC NEWS, a spokesman for the San people who live in the Kalahari Desert, Andries Steenkamp says, "I learned how to eat it from my forefathers. It is my food, my water and also a medicine for me. Hoodia stops hunger and also treats sickness," Steenkamp told ABC NEWS. "We San use the plant during hunting to fight off the pain of hunger and thirst".
The San (Kung) Bushmen can trace their heritage back more than 27,000 years based on rock paintings and are one of the world's oldest and most primitive tribes, and they have known about the properties of Hoodia Gordonii for thousands of years.
