Hoodia is a genus of succulent Aloe plants, not cacti, in the family Apocynaceae that is widely used traditionally by the San people of Southern Africa, not only as a safe appetite suppressant, but also as a thirst quencher and as a cure for severe abdominal cramps, hemorrhoids, tuberculosis, indigestion, hypertension and diabetes.
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.
WHAT IS PROOF OF Certified Hoodia Gordonii Authentic products to buy?
Our best quality products from our Raw Material Supplier, one of five in the world and the only one in North America, were issued the certied Hoodia license by Western Cape Conservation Authority of South Africa and CITES to claim authenticity of 100% pure Hoodia Gordonii that come from farms which were granted a license to grow Hoodia for export. It not only protects the rights and hoodia safety of the San people against being exploited, but it also protects the regulations in purity of ingredients against the impure and inferior filler products that flood the market. A Certificate of Analysis for certified Hoodia, which is easily obtained, does not automatically guarantee the ingredients are “authentic” or “pure”.
CITES is a UN- watchdog for endangered species, plants and animals and will not allow licensing claims (by Western Cape Conservation Authority of South Africa and CITES) to be made by them on any website, unless licensed!!
We do not list our licensing on the Internet as it would be copied and stolen by others.
Western Cape Conservation Authority of South Africa and CITES monitors all websites and allows only those whom they know with licensing to make claims that their product ingredients was licensed through Western Cape and CITES. If you have Hoodia safety concerns...read on.
HOW DOES YOUR HOODIA Gordonii TRIM-FAST COMPARE TO OTHER BRANDS?
The market is currently flooded with Hoodia Gordonii diet pills and there are many claims being made that have not been substantiated. Buyer-beware!
There are basically 4 different types of Hoodia to buy;
1. Wild Hoodia Gordonii from South Africa - This is safe 100% best quality pure Hoodia made by mother nature, discovered and eaten by the San Tribe of South Africa. They eat the Aerial Stem parts like a cucumber, which provides the appetite suppressant and other herbal benefits without side effects, and discard any pulpy leaf and flora parts. This is what goes into our 100% pure HOODIA TRIM-FAST product.
2. Outdoor / Greenhouse Cultivated Hoodia – Plants which grow outdoors have the added vitaminic benefit due to the Sun exposure just as the naturally occurring wild Hoodia plants do. Trying to grow a wild plant on farms, opens up a serious challenge, especially for the Hoodia plant that needs specific desert burn conditions. These farmers and growers are faced with all kinds of pests and diseases that they have to keep under control, in order for the plant to thrive. Recent droughts have limited re-issuing of farm licenses.
3. Hoodia Extracts 20:1, 10:1 , 1:1 - The other thing about these extracts is that they claim to be 10:1 or 20:1 ratio of extract, and most claim 20:1. If you make a 20:1 extract it means you are taking 20kgs of that material to make 1, throwing away all but the active ingredient. That would make it a very powerful material.
However, when you extract, and there are many herbal extracts that are good, you
take away a lot of the supporting appetite suppressing benefits, such as, the Aloe benefit, that I mentioned previously. Some plants have great supporting properties, but when they are extracted they are gone and some of the extracts don’t work as well without them.
The cost to make a 20:1 Hoodia Extract is prohibitive. You would use 20kgs to make 1, so you would throw away 19. If you buy Hoodia, let’s say, for $300.00/kg USD, you can multiply that 20kgs by 300.00/kg and the cost of that 1kg left would be 6000.00 USD. The cost for 1 x 60 capsule bottle of Hoodia would be 150.00 USD and they would not be able to sell it for under $200.00 per bottle.
20:1 and 10:1 Extracts Ratio claims, cannot support itself financially, if made of pure Hoodia Gordinii, unless otherwise filled with a host of additives.
4. Hoodia with fillers - containing other inexpensive ingredients. Recent black market Hoodia was confiscated as it was said to have sawdust as one of their fillers and not a trace of Hoodia which is an obvious safety concern. 100% pure Hoodia Gordonii, from wild Aerial Stem, is most effective as a stand alone diet supplement appetite suppressant, there is no need to add any chemicals or other additives. The San Bushmen simply eat the cucumber like Hoodia Gordonii plant stem, in very small quantities.
HOW DID RESEARCH INTO Hoodia Gordonii GET STARTED?
Due to the hoodia gordonii safety and tradition of food use of Hoodia plants, certain species were included in a scientific research project established by the South African statutory council known as CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) to screen a large number of bush foods. As part of the hoodia safety screening process, plants were made and tested for toxic effects. Surprisingly, it was observed that the 100% Hoodia Aerial stem, NOT from extracts, caused a safe decrease in appetite and body weight in animals.
DO ALL HOODIA PLANT SPECIES SUPPRESS APPETITE?
There are several Hoodia plant species that is said to have some degree of appetite suppressant in them, but ONLY the Hoodia Gordonii is the most potent and much sought after one. Hence, there are many inferior products out there. Hoodia products made from pulpy leaf, 20:1, 10:1 extracts or concentrates, have minimal effect, not only because it so diluted, but because all the other supporting ingredients, such as Aloe and other medicinal properties have been stripped away that makes Hoodia what it is. Processing kills any live living cells remaining in naturally dried Hoodia and in where the potency lie.
A good Hoodia product need to last longer than in between meals where 2 capsules per meal need to taken.
HAVE THE BENEFITS OF Hoodia Gordonii BEEN CLINICALLY PROVEN?
In 2001 Phytopharm completed a double blind, placebo-controlled clinical study in overweight, but otherwise healthy volunteers using Hoodia Gordonii. The larger doses of Hoodia 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.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR HOODIA TRIM-FAST TO HAVE AN EFFECT?
This will vary from person to person, some people feel the appetite suppressing side affects immediately, while for others it may take several days.
DOES HOODIA GORDONII HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
If you have Hoodia Safety concerns, clinical study described above and the hoodia safety data are consistent with a satisfactory overall safe profile, however further scientific studies are required to establish the long term safety profile of Hoodia Gordonii. The main side effect of 100% pure Hoodia Trim-Fast products is a reduction in appetite.

WHAT DOES THE INCLUSION OF Hoodia Gordonii IN Appendix II of CITES, MEAN?
CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement between governments to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. There are 166 Parties (States bound by the Convention). Species covered by CITES are listed in three appendices. Appendix II includes species not necessarily threatened with extinction, but for which trade must be controlled in order to avoid utilization incompatible with their survival. A proposal to include Hoodia on Appendix II has been submitted by the range states (South Africa, Namibia and Botswana) for review at the Conference of Parties in Bangkok, October 2004. Inclusion of Hoodia onto Appendix II of CITES will help ensure that all harvest operations and trade of Hoodia plant material are controlled at an international level in order to conserve indigenous plant populations within the range states.
IF Hoodia Gordonii IS RARE, IS THE SOURCE SUSTAINABLE?
Hoodia Gordonii is very rare and is protected by national conservation laws in South Africa and Namibia. It can only be collected or grown with a certified permit. Wild stocks are also extremely limited so the South African government has established plantations over the past 5 years to grow sustainable quantities of Hoodia Gordonii.
HOW DOES 100% PURE HOODIA TRIM-FAST REALLY WORK?
HOODIA TRIM-FAST contain 100% pure Hoodia Gordonii Succulent plant - the Hoodia plant contains a molecule, P57, that is estimated to be up to 10.000 times as potent as glucose in sending a signal to the brain that the body is in a state of satiety, or in common terms: not hungry. Hoodia TRIM-FAST diet supplements simply take away your craving for food, which makes it easier for calorie restriction.
