Controversy: The truth about the Hoodia Gordonii Extract

Can Real Hoodia Gordonii come in an extract form? The simple answer to this question is no, no they can’t.

And the reason for this is simple too.

You see, when companies wield the term ‘Hoodia extract’, all they are actually offering you is a sample of the product they are claiming to sell. In most cases just 60%.

The other 40% on the other hand can be anything from the leaves or flower of the Hoodia Gordonii plant; parts from other Hoodia plants (there are in fact 13 types of Hoodia plant, but only Hoodia Gordonii can offer users appetite suppression) and even caffeine.

So whilst said companies may claim to sell you genuine 100% Hoodia Gordonii extract, you would be lucky to actually get 60% of the real plant. The core where the active ingredient P57 is found.

It is incredible what lengths companies will go to to cut corners in the production of this weight loss capsule.

So check the label carefully before you consider investing.

Apart from the core of the Hoodia Gordonii plant, the only other ingredient you should ever find on the packaging is gelatib for its capsule.

Now we can see that you’re confused. You’re thinking - didn’t we just tell you that there should only be one ingredient in the capsule? Well this is not strictly true. Take the ones we have listed above. They are actually the ingredients used to build up the capsule itself.

They are okay to be there, as they do not affect the authenticity of the Hoodia Gordonii plant or its purity levels. Their only job is to make sure the powdered form of the plants core is more accessible for you to use.

Find anything else on the ingredient list or spot a quote that includes the phrase ‘extract’, and put it straight back. Don’t even look at it. All this information is actually telling you is that the product is not authentic and contains only 60% of real Hoodia Gordonii.

But the news surrounding this controversy gets worse.

According to research performed by Alkemist Pharmaceuticals, they found that over 80% of Hoodia Gordonii capsules are not authentic.

Now this not to say, that there are not genuine Hoodia Gordonii capsules out there who have got the backing, the clinical testing and the CITES certificate to prove their worth. It is just a question of looking around and making sure you check the ingredients label before you invest.
