Review of Hoodia

Well weight loss is one thing that is prime in the minds of most youngsters today. The kind of work that most of us do leaves little or no time for exercizing. Dieting should be the last resort. After all, noone wants to end up anorexic. There are quite a few diet pills as well. But most of them are either believed to cause side effects or actually do so.

One of the most trusted options for weight loss is green tea. However most of them end up with no results. Quite a few probabilities to figure out why the most trusted options is not working out for a few of them.

Firstly, green tea is a herbal supplement and so gives you results only if you have it the correct format. To lose weight, green tea must be taken in an unsweetened format. Adding sugar to your tea defeats the whole purpose of having it as a weight losing beverage. It is not that taking sweetened green tea doesn't act, but sweetening actually neurtralizes the work done by the herbal green tea. So, it is best to take it unsweetened. You can lose upto 5-8 pounds in a week.

But most of them find it difficult to actually take in unsweetened tea. And so use artificial sweeteners that add zero calories. Though this is not very counterproductive, it is better to check out on a few things before you go ahead with this format. Check if the artificial sweetner contains Aspartame. Green tea is an antioxidant and Aspartame when mixed with liquid at 37 degrees (our body temperature averages about that) turns into Formeldahyde (the same stuff in which cadavers are preserved. It's also in nail polish). Ever hear the saying that diet drinks keep you looking younger? It's not just a saying, it's true. Diet stuff usually contains Aspartame and Formeldahyde is a preservative. It preserves your body. So what ends up happening is that the antioxidant in Green Tea will keep trying to focus on flushing the remnants of the Formeldahyde more than working on everything else in your system. You won't really see the results as much as you should.

But most other artifical sweetners contain sucralose (made when sugar molecules are "exploded" with chlorine (basically chlorine atoms substitute three of the hydrogyen-oxygen combos).When you use such sweeteners, the sweetening effect basically has no effect on the green tea's action and you might possibly see the expected results.

Are you considering the use of Hoodia for weight loss?

in South Africa, who recieve compensation from all sales of their hoodia
plants. If you purchase hoodia that comes from anywhere else, it is not
guaranteed to be authentic or effective, and may even be illegal or

The hoodia plant works by tricking the brain into thinking it's full. This
occurs in the part of the brain called the hypothalamus. The effects on the
brain are similar to those of glucose, only 10,000 times more effective!

You can find hoodia gordonii available in several different forms such as
capsule, spray, liquid, and patch. What you choose depends on your own
preferred method of hoodia ingestion.

When added to a healthy diet and regular exercise, extracts of the hoodia
