| Hoodia - the Miracle Weight Loss Cactus
If you are not familiar
with Hoodia Gordonii, the all new fad in dieting products, you are sure to
learn about it soon. Hoodia comes from a
cactus plant in South Africa and has been eaten for thousands of
years by the native San Bushmen in the Kalahari Desert. The bushmen eat
the Hoodia plant before a hunting trip or during periods of
time they knew they won't have much food to eat. The Hoodia plants appetite
suppressant qualities allowed the San bushmen to feel full while
not eating the entire day while hunting. For desert life where
the availability of food
can be scarce, Hoodia provied to be a natural miracle appetite suppressant.
