Making the decision to lose weight is life changing. Yearly, over 45 million Americans will make this commitment to themselves. A commitment for better health, better wellbeing and increased self-confidence.
The decision is admirable but the path is not easy. Often challenged with hunger pangs, stomach cramps and dreams of Oreo cookies – temptation is never too far away.
What if there were a natural supplement that could suppress all of those unpleasant feelings?
The History of Hoodia
Wherever man has a need, Mother Nature has supplied a solution. Found in the dessert, Hoodia is a stem succulent looking extremely similar in appearance to a cactus. Growing close to the ground, this spin backed plant has been cultivated for thousands of years by the long traveling tribes of South Africa.
Often spending long periods of time away on hunting trips the need to be stealth and agile didn’t accommodate for a large knapsack of sustenance.
Although the human body has the ability to survive without food for as many as 21 consecutive days, the side effects are painful and distracting.
The tribes of South Africa have a solution for these unpleasant effects of hunger, a solution found in their unique hoodia plants.
How Hoodia can Help Americans Lose Weight?
Committing to a diet plan is the first big step in the journey to better health and wellbeing. Quick changes to diet often leave dieters with an empty stomach, cravings and sugar dips increasing the urge to eat more.
Hoodia helps dieters follow diet plans by reducing their feelings of appetite.
The urge of appetite is controlled by a feedback loop from body to brain. You eat, your body releases a hormone called leptin and your brain tells you you’re full. As time ticks past, those levels of leptin fall and your brain tells your body it’s time to eat.
This continuous process isn’t just effected by the amount of food eaten. It’s also effected by emotion, blood sugar levels and fat consumption.
Hoodia supplements help to release this cycle.
Scientists have identified a molecule named P57 which is uniquely found naturally in the native South African hoodia plant.
P57 is an un-interestingly named molecule with a very interesting, proven effect as an appetite suppressant.
Does Hoodia Work?
With indigenous use proving hoodia’s ability to quell the urge for food, you may be wondering just whether this herbal remedy can help Americans lose weight.
Studies confirm after just 10 days use of a supplement like HoodiThin, dieters confirmed a 98% ability to control cravings, leading to positive effects on weight, BMI and waist circumference.
The unique hoodia plant of South Africa acts at the major pain point all dieters experience – hunger pangs and cravings.
Making the decision for better health and wellbeing is the first step, sticking to the road that’ll take dieters to this destination is the trial. Natural hoodia supplements can help turn that journey from a pot-holed pavement to a smooth and able highway.
