The Four Types of Hoodia Gordonii Found in Weight Loss Products
While it has been scientifically proven that Hoodia gordonii is effective for appetite suppression, not all liquid Hoodia extracts and Hoodia diet pills are created equally.
Wild-Crafted Hoodia: The highest-quality, most effective Hoodia products are made using expensive, wild-crafted Hoodia that is nearly impossible to obtain. Wild-crafted Hoodia occurs naturally in its wild habitat where it grows for decades to reach full maturity and maximum strength. Because what you start out with is also what you end up with — Hoodia extracts and Hoodia diet pills made from 100% pure wild-crafted Hoodia gordonii are the obvious choice.
Cultivated Hoodia: While only 5% as strong as wild-crafted Hoodia, cultivated Hoodia may produce mild appetite suppressing effects. Cultivated Hoodia has been hand-planted within the last 5-7 years and is therefore not nearly as strong or effective for weight loss.
Adulterated Hoodia: is made when either wild-crafted or cultivated Hoodia is mixed with additives and fillers like magnesium searate or silica. Because real high-quality Hoodia is so expensive, companies pad their Hoodia products in order to save money. Some companies even go as far as to include multiple ingredients in their Hoodia products — The less Hoodia they give to consumers, the more money they save.
Fake Hoodia: Unfortunately, there is also counterfeit Hoodia. In order to profit from Hoodia’s worldwide success, many fraudulent companies sell "Hoodia" to consumers that contains no real Hoodia at all. These con-artists simply manipulate rice powder from China to look like real Hoodia. In reality, these products taste nothing like Hoodia and do nothing for appetite suppression.
Hoodia — Historical Use & Background
the plant for years.
The Hoodia succulent is a genus of 13 species including Hoodia gordonii — a cactus-like plant, predominantly found in the southern regions of South Africa and Namibia where its renowned for its appetite-suppressing abilities. For thousands of years the San Bushmen of the Kalahari have taken wild-crafted Hoodia gordonii to suppress appetite, control thirst and provide energy during long hunting trips where food and water were likely to be scarce.
Recently, the media has been ablaze with news of scientific studies that prove that South African Hoodia is an effective way to ‘trick’ your brain into making you feel full and reducing your desire to overeat. Now Hoodia can found in the form of Hoodia diet pills, liquids and extracts.

These components travel to the the brain’s hypothalamus which reacts by suppressing the appetite. These compounds include the distinguished P-57 constituent that scientists have determined is 100,000 times more powerful than glucose.
While the P-57 molecule has been clinically proven to reduce food consumption by 1,000 calories per day, it is prohibitively expensive to isolate. However, the Hoodia gordonii whole-plant succulent in which it is found has an extensive track record of safe and effective appetite suppression that spans time immemorial.
Don’t Buy Counterfeit Products
Unfortunately, the great success of pure Hoodia gordonii diet pills has attracted numerous fraudulent companies. These companies use a variety of techniques to swindle customers into buying weak and often useless imitation products.
For a Hoodia product to be effective for appetite suppression and weight loss, it must be created with 100% pure wild-crafted Hoodia gordonii stems — No fillers, flowers, roots, chemicals or stimulants present. Reliable Hoodia suppliers will also be able to provide customers with their CITES certification to ensure their product truly is Hoodia gordonii from South Africa. But even when a company does display their CITES certification, one has to be careful not to fall for counterfeit certificates that have been stolen and modified to look like genuine documents.
