Hoodia Herb Health Benefits

Hoodia is a succulent, fleshy cactus-like plant of the Asclepiad family. Because the plant has been over-harvested and is nearing extinction in its native range in southern Africa, it is protected from wild-harvest.


When Hoodia gordonii is cultivated and given ample supplies of water it grows rapidly and has a decreased need to defend itself, which in turn lowers the need for high production of the foul-tasting triterpenes that ward off natural insect predators.


Among its many varieties, Hoodia Gordonii is the most popular because its extracts suppress hunger and effectively helps reduce weight and fat percentage.


It is available on the market in many forms, including pills, capsules, juice, complexes, chews, diet supplements, and even lollipops.


Hoodia Pops are lollipops containing Hoodia extract with some other herbal extracts, which are flavoured and artificially sweetened.


These Hoodia Pops have become very popular with celebrities these days, not merely because they help lose weight, but rather due to the fact that they are handy, state of the art, and new.


These pops help you lose weight in two ways. First, they help you lose weight due to the presence of Hoodia in them that kills your appetite and second, they keep your mouth engaged so you aren’t thinking about eating.


Due to the lack of clinical trials, the Hoodia herb is not recommended for women who are pregnant or are nursing, for children or the elderly or for people with heart conditions.


You should always check with your doctor before taking any kind of weight loss supplement, and those with high or low blood sugar should use Hoodia only under medical supervision.


Little is known about the side effects of the Hoodia herb due to the lack of human testing in a clinical environment.


Most suppliers suggested to take 1 to 4 Hoodia tablets in the morning before breakfast on an empty stomach.
