For those who have spent many years fighting a losing battle with controlling their weight, every new product that hits the market represents the possibility of finally getting things under control. One of the latest products is Hoodia Gordonii Plus. Advertised as a diet pill that has achieved some relatively impressive results, it can be hard to separate the truth from the hyperbole.
There are many different forms of Hoodia on the market to choose from and as that name might suggest there is a little more to the products labeled as Hoodia Gordonii Plus than the standard diet pill that has been on the market for quite some time. The biggest problem with trusting your weight to any product that claims to contain Hoodia is that so many of them contain such small amounts of the herb that they are for the most part ineffective.
The “Plus’ in this product is in fact yet another plant product that comes from Central and West Africa known as Garcinia Cambogia. In the average pill there is 50mg of this product, which is said to help the body learn to burn fat more effectively. Depending on the research you read, you will hear that these pills can decrease your appetite and help you to reduce your overall body mass index, which is the number we are all so concerned with today.
The Cambogia has been used for generations in India as a remedy for many different ailments, leading many to think that the holistic qualities of this plant have been proven beyond doubt. However, you will find that there is research on both sides of the picture, some that shows the product works and some that does not. Those products that have been proven to work are the ones that contain the purest form of Hoodia Gordonii and Garcinia Cambogia.
A complete analysis of Hoodia Gordonii Plus also shows that it contains 250mg of magnesium which is and essential mineral that helps to strengthen the muscles of the heart and your body to digest many of the vitamins that your body needs to remain healthy. You will also find green tea extract which is another natural herbal product that research has been shown to reduce your risk of cancer and many other diseases. These are just the main ingredients in these diet pills and you should always do your own research before you decide which type of diet pill you should use or if you should use one at all.
