What few people realize is that real South African Hoodia Gordonii is rare, and the majority is all exported by just a few export companies worldwide, so all these companies displaying CITES export certificates are not likely displaying their own, if it is even real.
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) September 22, 2007
Hoodia Gordonii, an unassuming cactus-like plant found only in a small region of South Africa, has been heralded by many as the answer to weight loss. It has been featured on the likes of CBS News, 60 minutes, Oprah Winfrey, ABC and countless major magazines.
Hoodia Gordonii was found to contain a unique molecule that appears highly effective for dieters without traditional side effects of stimulants, and used by local African natives for thousands of years to suppress appetite.
While hoodia diet pills hold much promise for those dieting, a new study reveals a double edged sword. It discovered, while real Hoodia Gordonii diet pills can be highly effective in weight loss, that 50 percent or more of the hoodia products sold don't contain authentic South African Hoodia Gordonii.
In an extensive research study of over 50 products, by InternetHealthReview.com, it was discovered that most hoodia products on the market were either ineffective due to no real Hoodia Gordonii content or as a result of too small quantity per dose.
When asked about CITES certification and similar methods often touted by sellers for identifying quality hoodia, spokesperson, Jennifer Marshall, explains, "What few people realize is that real South African Hoodia Gordonii is rare, and the majority is all exported by just a few export companies worldwide, so all these companies displaying CITES export certificates are not likely displaying their own, if it is even real." She further indicated that it was simply a sales tool used by hoodia sellers to sell more products.
Millennium Health, a major importer/exporter of 75 percent of the world's hoodia stated "The market is saturated with fake Hoodia."
When asked what people can do to obtain effective hoodia for weight loss, Jennifer Marshall indicated that the only truly effective way is to have it tested by an independent lab.
Acknowledging that was not realistic for most consumers, Marshall urged consumers to buy only brands previously shown to be effective. She further commented on avoiding gimmicks like gum, tea, bars and coffee, none of which have yet been proven effective.
Fortunately, the study reveals some fat busting results for a few brands of hoodia, which have helped people lose up to 52 pounds. On their site at InternetHealthReview.com/Hoodia provides dieters a report revealing the top 5 results for hoodia diet pills, as well as guidelines to use in purchasing Hoodia Gordonii.
