Hoodia Gordonii Diet Pills Facts And Myths Uncovered

Myth: "Getting Hoodia gordonii from a national 'Nutrition Chain' means I'm assured of quality." I was stunned to find out that the Hoodia diet pills for sale in national health food stores and drug chains are totally useless. What I didn't know is that most if not all national health stores and drug chains care first and foremost about one thing - their bottom line. If a vendor wants the national health stores and chains to carry his worthless Hoodia weight loss product all he has to do is:
  • Insure & indemnifythe chain against potential claims and damages
  • Provide a "Certificateof Authenticity" saying it's "uncontaminated to the best of his knowledge"
  • Agree to promoteand advertise aggressively
  • Give it to themdirt cheap
Rest assured, they already know real Hoodia gordonii is not cheap. But apparently they're willing not only to look the other way but to insist on a dirt cheap price just to bolster their bottom line. Myth: "Hoodia is unproven." Hoodia Fact: In 2001 Phytopharm completed a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study in overweight, but otherwise healthy volunteers using an extract of Hoodia gordonii. The large doses of extract caused a statistically significant reduction in the average daily calorie intake. In addition, a statistically significant reduction in body fat content was also observed compared to the placebo group after two weeks. Source: Myth: "Hoodia is patented by Phytopharm therefore no one can legally sell it." Fact: In 2001, Phytopharm, a small firm in Cambridgeshire, England said it had discovered a potential cure for obesity derived from an African cactus. It later emerged that the company had patented the appetite-suppressing P57 molecule in the Hoodia succulent. But this is not the same as having a patent on the plant itself. No one can restrict you from the benefits of a plant containing a naturally occurring molecule. Phillip Jones, in his "Overview of United States Patent Law," says "…a naturally occurring molecule cannot be patented even if the patent applicant was the first to discover the existence of the molecule. Only a purified, isolated or altered form of a naturally occurring molecule may be patentable." References: Jones, Phillip. Overview of United States Patent Law My exhaustive research into the Hoodia weight loss products market along with the independent investigation by journalists across the world is helping to shine the light on crooked practices. Hopefully, you now have the facts you need to separate the real from the fakes to avoid making costly mistakes. Myth: "Any Hoodia from Africa will curb my appetite" Fact: Although the genus Hoodia is widespread in southern Africa, herbarium records indicate that Hoodia gordonii only occurs in South Africa and Namibia. Any claims about other areas of distribution should be verified by a competent taxonomist. Source: Myth: "All suppliers of Hoodia diet pills are required to give a portion of their profits to the SAN people who discovered its useful properties." Fact: Many of the newcomers to the benefits of Hoodia couldn't care less. One of the things I looked for when researching Hoodia companies was if they were being responsible to the people who discovered this marvelous plant. For that reason I made sure any company I did business with could prove they give at least 6% of the sales price of SAN endorsed Hoodia to the SAN People who for the most part are very poor, with very serious needs.
