Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) June 10, 2004
Millennium Health Supplements (Canada) Inc. introduced the North American market to Hoodia Gordonii in February 2004, the all-nature appetite suppressing cacti/succulent from South Africa with no known side-effects and no stimulants. Hoodia Gordonii is taking the multi-billion dollar diet industry by storm after it was introduced by MHSCI, who is reporting strong sales for not only the capsules but for industry raw material as well.
Hoodia Gordonii grows in the high deserts of the Kalahari Desert region of South Africa and although there are other species of Hoodia, the Gordonii is the only one that contains the all-natural appetite suppressant.
Hoodia works by mimicking the effect glucose has on the nerve cells in the brain fooling the body into believing it is full, even when it is not. Results of human clinical trials in Britain suggest that hoodia could reduce the appetite by up to 2,000 calories per day.
While many people feel the appetite suppressant kicking in sometimes within 20 minutes of ingestion, it is felt that the general population responds to hoodia within 1 Â 2 weeks of starting the program. Some morbidly obese people (more than double their normal weight), who describe themselves as eating machines since childhood, say that although they felt the appetite suppressant kicking in after 2 Â 3 weeks, it took a few weeks before they realized their interest in food was significantly decreasing, thereby helping to change life long eating habits.
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. 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."
According to the WHO, more than 1 billion people around the world are overweight with 300 million of them clinically or morbidly obese. 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-sized coffins sales since 1999 in the USA.
Hoodia Gordonii is now available in 400mg capsules, 60 per bottle by mail order or in bulk for the wholesale/manufacturing market.
