TORONTO, CANADA (PRWEB) March 3, 2004
Millennium Health Supplements (Canada) Inc. is introducing 100% Pure Hoodia Gordonii directly from South Africa.
Hoodia GordoniiÂs revolutionary properties will take the multi-billion dollar diet industry by storm, after much research by South African scientists and western pharmaceutical companies have proven that Hoodia has no known side effects and no stimulants.
Hoodia Gordonii grows in the high deserts of the Kalahari Desert region of South Africa where temperatures reach as high as 50 degrees Celsius. Although there are other species of Hoodia, the Gordonii is the only one that contains the all-natural appetite suppressant.
South African scientists have been testing the Hoodia plant since 1996 when they discovered the plant contained a previously unknown molecule, dubbed P57 by BritainÂs leading pharmaceutical researcher, replicates the effect glucose has on nerve cells in the brain fooling the body into thinking it is full, even when it is not. HoodiaÂs appetite suppressing molecule is said to be almost 10,000 times stronger than glucose.
Pharmaceutical giant Phytopharm is rushing to produce a drug for the weight loss industry in the next few years, but pure Hoodia Gordonii works incredibly well in its natural form.
Results of human clinical trials in Britain suggest that P57 could reduce the appetite by up to 2,000 calories a day.
The San (Kung) Bushmen can trace their heritage back more than 27,000 years based on rock paintings and are one of the world's oldest and most primitive tribes, and they have known about the properties of Hoodia Gordonii for thousands of years.
In an interview with ABCNEWS, a spokesman for the San people who live in the Kalahari Desert, Andries Steenkamp says, "I learned how to eat it from my forefathers," as he prepared a piece of the cactus-like plant called hoodia by trimming off the prickly spikes. "It is my food, my water, and also a medicine for me." "Hoodia stops hunger and also treats sickness," Steenkamp told ABCNEWS. "We San, use the plant during hunting to fight off the pain of hunger and thirst."
World Health Organization reports that Globesity is rapidly becoming the biggest threat to westernerÂs health. According to the WHO, more than 1 billion people are overweight with 300 million of those clinically or morbidly obese (double their normal weight). The medical community reports excessive weight gain is directly related to severe medical problems including heart disease, diabetes, cancer and the onset of strokes.
Reports say that over the next 5 years, deaths related to obesity will increase by 20% in keeping with a reported 20% increase in plus-size coffin sales over the last 5 years in the USA.
Hoodia Gordonii is available in a one-month supply of 60-200mg capsules by mail order or bulk powder for the wholesale market. Dosage is from 400mg to 800mg per day.
