Hoodia Gordonii plant
The Hoodia plant has exploded onto the diet pill and supplement market as a plant that will help you lose weight, guaranteed and works on the brain to suppress your appetite and make you eat less, therefore consuming less calories and helping you lose weight.
But is this new plant the real deal? Truthfully, yes, Hoodia Gordonii is very effective at suppressing the appetite and will help just about anyone lose weight.
However, just like any new product or ingredient that is proven to be successful and a hot new trend, imposters are always trying to use it to sell their new product in new gimmicky packaging and by using it differently.
What is Hoodia Bites?
Hoodia Bites is just one of the many products that have jumped on the Hoodia bandwagon and have tried to create a product that just isn’t effective. Hoodia Bites differ from other Hoodia products because they are a chewable supplement that has a chocolate flavor and are eaten like a candy.
The official website for Hoodia Bites claims that you need to take only one Bite whenever you feel hungry and 5 minutes later the feeling of hunger will pass and you will consume less calories. This statement is quite hard to believe.
This is partially due to the fact that genuine Hoodia Gordonii products usually have at least 1000mg of Hoodia Gordonii to make them effective. Hoodia Bites has only half of that at 500mg and the active ingredient, P57, in such small amounts simply won’t be effective in weight loss.
Hoodia Bites – unrealistic statements
Another reason the manufacturers “fast acting and long-lasting” statement is questionable is because the official website states that within 5 minutes of taking a Hoodia Bite, the feeling of hunger will vanish and you will completely eliminate things like snacking and overeating.
Compared to other authentic Hoodia Gordonii products, that take 30 to 45 minutes to work, with at least twice as much of the P57 active ingredient, it’s impossible to see how something using half as much of the ingredient can work in just a fraction of the time.
Hoodia Bites – not medically approved
One can generally turn to the certification of a Hoodia product to determine if it uses authentic Hoodia Gordonii and there is a whole section of the official Hoodia Bites website that is dedicated to outlining the certification that this product has. The page begins by explaining how there are many fake Hoodia products on the market and how certification is necessary to prove a product’s authenticity.
What’s ironic about this is that the manufacturers don’t display any certification on the website. There is mention of testing that was done through an independent company however the company listed is not one of the well-known Hoodia Gordonii laboratories.
It’s also within the certification section of the website that it mainly mentions how Hoodia Bites have been tested and shown to be authentic Hoodia, not Hoodia Gordonii. Hoodia Gordonii, the only Hoodia plant that will be effective in weight loss, is actually only mentioned once while the statement that Hoodia Bites is an authentic Hoodia product is mentioned several times.
