Frenzy Has Consumers Confused
November 25th 2005
With the popularity of Hoodia Gordonii as an all
natural appetite suppressant and weight loss aid at an all time
high, so to is the confusion over it. Consumers don't know what to
look for when purchasing, and more recently, there is controversy
over dosage. The confusion is being fueled by those marketing it.
Quality hoodia is either pure Hoodia, or Hoodia in a
formula, from the Kalahari Desert areas of South Africa. Hoodia from
Texas, Mexico or China has not been shown in clinical trials to
suppress appetite and aid in weight loss. Much of the very
inexpensive Hoodia on the market is sourced in places other than
A quality Hoodia product is obtained using only the
"core" or the heart of the stems of the Hoodia Gordonii plant. Of
the 20 or more species of Hoodia, the Gordonii is the one that
contains the active molecule P57 that acts on the hypothalamus to
suppress hunger pangs. Many other Hoodia species may be on the store
shelves but they will have no effect on your appetite.
How much Hoodia do you need to help you eat less and
achieve your weight loss goals? The answers are a varied as the
brands that are available. There is so much confusion over Hoodia
that it is no wonder the consumer is frustrated and bewildered when
it comes to knowing what brand to buy and how much to take. Each
brand has a recommended dosage for their product.
"Hoodia should be taken in a manner and in an amount
that will work for the individual, with the emphasis on individual"
said Hoodia Diet Sense wholesaler Deborah Patrie. People are not all
the same, having different appetites and different metabolisms. Body
mass may play a part in what amount works for an individual.
"So rather than dictate a number of mgs. per serving
and say that is the correct amount for everyone, we suggest using a
method of titration to find the correct dose for yourself". To do
this a tablet of smaller size is needed so one can slowly build up
the dose over time to find the correct dose that inhibits appetite.
If 500 or 750 mgs. is effective, why use 1000, 1250 or more? If
different circumstances call for different dosages then why not
"That is why we made Hoodia Diet Sense in the smaller
250 mg tablets". This allows you to find the dose that works for you
and not waste your money taking an amount in excess of what you need
to achieve results. This is not a new concept. Many medicines are
titrated this way and it make sense.
The people trying to convince you that you need a
large amount of Hoodia to suppress appetite are the merchants of
these high dose preparations and the marketing people. Deborah

when deciding the proper amount of Hoodia to take will not only
yield good results it may even save money in the long run".
