Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) September 9, 2004
Millennium Health Supplements (Canada) Inc. a raw material and ingredient supplier for the nutra/pharmaceutical and veterinarian industries since 1995 has recently been awarded a Conservation Certificate for export of Pure Hoodia Gordonii directly from South Africa into the North American market.
Hoodia Gordonii is an all-natural appetite suppressing succulent plant (part of the aloe family) from South Africa with no known side effects or stimulants. Although hoodia gordonii is new to the U.S. and Canada, this great all-natural product is taking over the multi-billion dollar diet industry here.
Sales in both the bulk and wholesale divisions are picking up and retail products may be reaching shelves as early as 2005. Currently, Hoodia Gordonii for the consumer is mainly available through internet sales. You can visit our website listed on this page for both retail and bulk Hoodia Gordonii products.
MHSCI is the only company in North America that donates money from our hoodia sales to local economic development projects in South Africa. Our hoodia sales empower the disadvantaged people of South Africa to improve their quality of life and their skills base by investing in food farming and beadwork (handcraft) projects. These projects are creating sustainable business and food sustenance platforms to support the poor on a long-term basis.
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.
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.
