Horton Hears a Hoodia
Many people are losing weight by taking a thing called hoodia. But, not many people know exactly what hoodia is. Let me clear up a lot of speculation throughout the nation and give an-depth explanation of this worldwide situation that is causing a major sensation. Authentic hoodia is one of the rarest botanicals in the world. It is a cactus like plant that grows exclusively in South Africa . Scientists have isolated several compounds in hoodia that helps suppress appetite. It contains a molecule called P57 that is 10,000 times as active as glucose. It goes to the mid-brain and makes those nerve cells feel as if you are full and this in turn stunts the appetite. It basically tricks the brain into thinking that you are full. To date, there are no known adverse side effects caused by the use of hoodia.
