How Hoodia Works

Hoodia has been used for thousands of years by the San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert to counter hunger and thirst on hunting trips. Hoodia has been studied by many scientists the past few years to determine what ingredients of hoodia are responsible for this effect on the appetite. Most of the study has focused on an active ingredient called P57 which is now believed to be the main active nutrient found in hoodia. In laboratory animal test scientists discovered that animals with P57 injections exhibited dramatic reductions of food intake.

Brown researchers believe that P57 is active in the hypothalamus - a brain structure that controls numerous drives in the body such as appetite, sex, sleep and mood. It is believed that additional P57 is able to increase ATP (energy compound) levels. This increase causes the hypothalamus to signal the brain the stop eating. P57 seems to work like just like glucose which is known boosts ATP levels and reduces appetite. The difference is that P57 has no calories.

Many clinical studies are currently being done to determine the effectiveness and safety of hoodia. The initial results seem to indicate that hoodia could be a very valuable tool as an appetite suppressant.

History of Hoodia

Hoodia Gordonii (Xhoba) is a succulent (cactus like) plant found in desert regions of South Africa (Namibia, Angola and Botswana). Although it looks like a small cactus, Hoodia is actually a type of milkweed. Being a succulent, it contains a good deal of moisture, which, although bitter tasting, is obviously useful when you�re out in the desert. For thousands of years, the San Bushmen of the Kalahari desert have used Hoodia Gordonii to counter hunger and thirst, when they were deprived of food on long hunting expeditions in the desert. Sucking on the pulpy flesh, the Bushmen could not only slake their thirst but also, as they discovered ages ago, quell their hunger.

In November of 2004, CBS news created quite a buzz about hoodia when it ran a story with Leslie Stahl which featuring Hoodia as a tool for battling weight. In Dec of 2004, Life Enhancement magazine reported that scientist had determined the the active ingredient in Hoodia which helps control appetite was P57. Our Hoodia-GL has been shown in laboratory analysis to have very high levels of this active ingredient. Clinical studies are currently being done on Hoodia to determine its effectiveness. In one of the first studies completed, participants given hoodia were able to significantly reduce their caloric input.

After Hoodia made national headlines with the CBS news story, the Hoodia marketing wars began as companies began to manufacture Hoodia as a nutritional supplement to assist with weight loss. Today there are a large variety of Hoodia products being sold. There are hoodia powders, extracts, hoodia from China, hoodia from South Africa and different species of hoodia altogether. We believe the most effective hoodia products are in extract form and come for Hoodia Gordonii in South Africa.

Not all members of the Hoodia family of plants are biologically active. Hoodia GL is produced from the species Hoodia Gordonii which has been used in the food chain of the indigent desert people of South Africa. It is very important that this species of Hoodia be used in any supplement since the others may not have the same effect.

Green Tea and Health Benefits

For thousands of years, green tea has been an integral part of the Asian diet. It was believed that drinking several cups a day led to a longer and healthier life. Green tea has also been reviewed for its fat burning qualities. Green tea is a powerful source of polyphenols, antioxidants that fight free radicals, unstable molecules that continually attack the body. Each 2 capsule serving of Hoodia-GL contains 100mg of polyphenols�as much as 10 cups of regular green tea.

Frequently Asked Questions on Hoodia GL with Green Tea

Should I take Hoodia extract or Hoodia powder capsules?
The powder forms of hoodia are often significantly weaker forms of the product and are usually the cheapest to manufacture. By contrast, Hoodia GL is a 20:1 extract of hoodia. A 20:1 extract of hoodia is still 100% hoodia, however it contains 20 times more hoodia plant than straight hoodia powder. In other words, Hoodia GL contains 20 times more functional hoodia than grinding up the hoodia plant itself.

Some websites selling hoodia powder products claim that hoodia extracts contain no hoodia. While it is possible that some products being sold as hoodia extract are not what they are labeled, this certainly is not the case for Hoodia-GL. VitaBase Hoodia GL has been tested and contains very high levels of P57, which is the active ingredient believed to be responsible for Hoodia's weight control benefits.

Which Hoodia was featured on 60 minutes?
The 60 minutes story did not endorse any nutritional supplement containing hoodia. In the 60 minutes special, Leslie Stahl went to Africa and actually tried "fresh" hoodia cactus. She reported that Hoodia helped control her appetite. Companies that claim that their specific product was endorsed or featured on 60 minutes are being a little misleading in their marketing. You can read the transcript of the 60 minutes report here.

How much Hoodia is necessary?
We recommend taking 2 capsules per day of Hoodia GL. Because our product is in an 20:1 extract, this is the equivalent of 10,000 mg of our competing hoodia powder products. It would take thirteen 400mg powder capsules to equal the potency of one capsule of Hoodia-GL. Pregnant and nursing women should avoid taking Hoodia-GL.

Is fake Hoodia being sold?
There is much speculation that a lot of the Hoodia being sold in this country is fake. It is entirely possible. Without independent testing it is difficult for the consumer to verify one way or the other. When you buy Vitabase Hoodia GL you can be sure that you are getting Hoodia Gordonii from South Africa.Each batch of raw ingredients have been tested and certified to be genuine.

Suggested Use
As a dietary supplement, adults take one capsule with water, two times daily before meals, or as directed by a health care professional. Store in a cool, dry place and away from direct light.

Keep out of reach of children. Pregnant and nursing women should avoid taking Hoodia-GL.
