Hoodia Gordonii found deep inside the South African Kalahari desert which looks more like a small cactus plant. This weird shaped cactus like plant has many allies throughout the desert and it becomes very difficult to identify which one is a real Hoodia plant. Amongst 13 other similar looking plants which are found in the desert, only one of them known as Hoodia has the appetite suppressing feature which helps in weight loss. Until today, there are no side-effects noticed or ever reported by the scientific research team which has been studying this product for over 30 years now. Very recently Phytopharm, a major pharmaceutical company has invested millions of dollars in isolating Hoodia’s Bioactive component from the actual plant.
For many generations, San Bushmen have consumed this plant before moving on for long desert hunts and walks to overcome their hunger and thirst. The San Bushmen would consume the plant in its raw form which allows them to stay awake and hassle free for over many hours.
Magnesium is also being used in the Hoodia Gordonii Plus pills. Being a major nutrient the body needs magnesium in heavy quantity for a better controlled nervous system and overall health. Magnesium is been used by different body parts to overcome any stiff muscle or blood clotting issues and also the manufacturing of ATP or adenosine triphosphate which is body’s main energy molecule.
Magnesium is well known for blocking any calcium content from entering into muscle and heart cells. Like other prescribed medicines would also work in a similar way more powerfully in blocking calcium from effecting major body organs. Thus adding magnesium content is safer for pills consumption unless a person takes an overdose which might be of concern.
Garcinia Cambogia Extract or Mangosteen oil tree or Garcinia Cambogia as one would call them are all same and contains a biologically active compound which would be inhibiting the synthesis of fatty acids or lipids and helps in lowering down the formation of triglycerides and LDL. Garcinia is also known for its usage as a heart tonic for having significant amounts of Vitamin C and many researches that have been conducted recently have pointed out its natural extract inhibiting conversion of excess calories into body fat. Moreover, the appetite can also be suppressed by synthesis of glycogen which is a stored form of glucose mostly known for a primary body energy sources.
With the increase in production of glycogen the body normally signals the brain about the food consumed. This is a normal way in which the stomach alerts the brain of the amount of food intake. With such great features, Garcinia is known for its herbal way of controlling obesity and cholesterol. It has set itself as a fat burning herbal all over the world majorly in America, Europe and Japan. The Hoodia pills are considered as dieting aid and not as a drug.
Green Tea as one would say ‘Better to be deprived of food for three days, then tea for one” is helpful in few medical conditions like the weight loss, eheumatoid, high cholesterol levels, cancer, cardiovascular disease, impaired immune function and infections. The main secret of green tea is its richness in catechin polyphenols and in particular the EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate). EGCG is well known as a powerful anti-oxidant which kills cancer cells without affecting any healthy cells. Along with that it also helps in lowering the LDL cholesterol levels and abnormal blood clotting as well. When talking of blood clotting, major thrombosis (the formation of abnormal blood clots) could dangerously lead to any forms of heart strokes or attacks. Thus adding green tea as an ingredient to the Hoodia Gordonii helps a lot with such effectiveness.
