Avon products and Cushy Lips help bring out your inner beauty. Bodybuilding products and Tai Chi instruction. Even a certified Hoodia product to guarantee potency.
During the last few years , there has been much discussion around the emergence of the Hoodia diet. The diet claims to be one of the best ways to lose weight. But, does it work ? How does eating healthy and exercise fit into the Hoodia weight loss plan ?
A 100% certified Hoodia weight loss product is available at http://www.bringoutknockout-beauty.com. Don't settle for cheaper, less potent products.
Hoodia gordonii is a cactus like plant that grows in the desserts of South Africa. It is estimated that 80% of all Hoodia products are counterfiet or low dosage. A 100% guarenteed product will ensure better results when used with a sensible diet. Cactus or succulent ?
Actually, to be more accurate, Hoodia is a succulent plant. The most potent of the twenty species is grown in Africa. Hoodia is also grown in North and South america . But, the wild grown succulents used by the Sans Bushmen tribes to suppress their appetites, is the best by far.
Hoodia can play an effective role in weight loss, but its' role is limited. Although it suppresses appetite, it cannot improve eating a bad diet or overeating. It does not help to burn body fat. It does not build muscle. Therefore, it cannot be overstated that a healthy diet and exercise are neccesary for weight loss.
There are many Hoodia products that are not completely made from Hoodia cactus. Additives such as caffeine are added to speed up metabolism. Hoodia gordonnii is the most widely researched species and products made from gordonii are thought to be the best.
When purchasing a Hoodia diet product, two things should be considered. The price of pure Hoodia is very expensive. It takes 5 to 7 years for the plant to mature. Therefore, lower priced products may contain additives or are low dosage. Secondly, an independent lab report on the product gives the purchaser more assuramce of the product quality. Usually, Alkemists Pharmaceuticals is used for the testing.
By the way, the Sans Bushmen suppress their appetites for long hunting trips. Eating in a healthy manner and exercising during their trips helps to achieve the desired weight loss.
So, how does Hoodia gordonii suppress your appetite ? The plant that belongs to the milkweed family contains a chemical that tricks the brain. The active compound is known as P57. It tricks the brain into thinking that you are not hungry. This chemical is a steroid like molecule that is bonded to three sugars. It works directly on the mid-brain, the hypothalamus, to achieve the effect. The P57 molecule increases the amount of ATP in the nerve cells of the hypothalamus. ATP stores energy from the biochemical reactions that metabolize sugar. When it appears that the sugar levels have increased in the brain, the nerve cells fire as if you had just eaten and are not hungry anymore.
As mentioned earlier, a healthy diet will be neccesary along with the appetite suppression. A healthy diet should contain a wide variety of foods. Fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes should make up the bulk of the diet. These foods are low fat and contain no cholesterol. Avoid animal fat. Eat nuts and fish. Eat high fiber foods and get calcium from low fat sources like low fat yogurt.
A healthy diet, Hoodia gordonii and exercise. A sedentary lifestyle will not help a dieter to lose weight. Consult a physician about proper exercise programs when medical conditions or prescription drugs are taken.
