How it works Hoodia Gordonii Plus?

Hoodia Gordonii (and more specifically the p-57 in the hoodia) imitates the effect glucose has on nerve cells in the brain.

Basically, Hoodia Gordonii fools the brain into thinking it's full when it's not. So, your brain sends the signal that it is full and this cuts your urge to snack on unhealthy food. In fact, Hoodia Gordonii is more powerful than glucose in telling the brain that you are full. Here is how Phytopharm's Dr Richard Dixey explained how P-57 actually works:

"There is a part of your brain, the hypothalamus. Within that mid-brain there are nerve cells that sense glucose sugar. When you eat, blood sugar goes up because of the food, these cells start firing and now you are full. What the Hoodia Gordonii seems to contain is a molecule that is about 10,000 times as active as glucose. It goes to the mid-brain and actually makes those nerve cells fire as if you were full. But you have not eaten. Nor do you want to."

We all need food to survive, when we feel hungry because we do not have enough food for the body to function this is called real hunger. You can not completely starve your body no matter how much Hoodia Gordonii you eat. At some point your brain will figure out you do need food to function.

However, when you feel hungry because your insulin levels are bouncing all over the place, this is called hormonal hunger. It is this hormonal hunger which does in most people's diets. When our blood sugar levels spike and fall, we crave more sweets and carbohydrates.

The idea of Hoodia Gordonii is to use it to stop snacking because of hormonal hunger. You want to continue to eat meals when you have real hunger, but you want to eliminate all the snacking due to hormonal hunger. While Hoodia Gordonii can help eliminate both types of hunger, we feel it is unhealthy skip meals. The real advantage we see to product is to eliminate cravings and snacks when you do not need to eat food.

As much as everyone argues about which is better low carb or low fat - in the end losing weight is a simple equation. Take in less calories than you burn and you will lose weight. Hoodia Gordonii may help you in a natural way in fighting with hunger and therefore take in less calories. It isn’t recommandable to run the body hotter, faster or harder, simply you consume less calories and therefore lose weight.

We also urge you to eat sensibly. When you experience a beneficial loss of appetite, make sure you are also getting a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals through the foods you eat or, with nutritional supplementation.
