Search the term 'hoodia' in your favorite search engine and you'll be bombarded by an huge assortment of manufacturers claiming to offer you 'genuine' hoodia. But here is the thing: 80 percent of the Hoodia products you are browsing through are fake.
So why are so many of them considered fake? Doesn't the ingredient list say real Hoodia are in the contents? In most cases it very well may be, but there is more to this story than just reading the ingredients list.
What To Watch For
If you spot a Hoodia product that doesn't identify what type of Hoodia plant it is, you are likely looking at a supplement that contains the wrong type of Hoodia.
The Hoodia Plants
You see, there are 13 different types of Hoodia plants, but of them all, only ONE - the Hoodia Gordonii plant - contains the active ingredient P57 that can effectively suppress your appetite.
Making matters even more unscrupulous, many companies have chosen to incorporate other ingredients such as caffeine to save on costs and supplies.
These factors reduce your chances of achieving real weight loss, by reducing the effectiveness of the supplement.
Bottom line: The only ingredients you should be seeing on your packaging is the core of the Hoodia Gordonii plant, and the ingredients used to make up its capsules: gelatib. Spot anything else on the ingredients list and you are not getting 100% pure Hoodia Gordonii.
How Hoodia Gordonii Works
Of the Hoodia Gordonii plant itself, only its aerial stem (the core) of the plant contains the active molecule P57. The rest of the plant, leaves, flowers and roots, offer nothing in terms of weight loss.
So even if a company is claiming to be using 100 percent pure Hoodia Gordonii, this might not be strictly true if they are using the whole of the plant to make the supplement. If they are, you are probably only getting 60 percent of the plants active ingredient - the one that works the magic of Hoodia.
