Hoodia For Weight Loss
Since many people find losing weight difficult at best, it is not surprising that people look to diet pills to help them achieve their goals. While there are no known diet pills or supplements that will replace exercise and changes in eating, there are a variety of effective weight loss pills that will help speed up the process. In the last few years many people have begun using hoodia for weight loss.Most people have heard of hoodia but are not sure what it is or how it works. Hoodia is a cactus like plant that is found mainly in South Africa. Interest in using hoodia for weight loss began when it was discovered that inhabitants of the Kalahari desert have been using this plant to help suppress their appetites. Since stores of food and water are limited in the desert, Kalahari natives would eat this plant to help stave off hunger pains.
Studies have been shown that rats who were injected with the component of hoodia that is believed to suppress appetites did eat less than other rats who were in the control group. Additionally, another study has shown that people who were given hoodia for weight loss consumed 1,000 calories less per day than those who had not been given the drug.
While it seems clear that hoodia is a natural appetite suppressant, the weight loss drug is still being tested for side effects, though none have been conclusively found so far. Still, for people looking for a way to cut down on snack cravings and lower their caloric intake, hoodia appears to be an excellent choice.
