Hoodia, a natural appetite suppressant, is earning global attention as a potentially powerful weapon in the war against obesity. The chemical constituents in Hoodia work within the satiety center by releasing a chemical compound similar to glucose but much stronger. The hypothalamus in the brain receives this signal as an indication that enough food has been consumed and this in turn stunts the appetite. Hoodia has no side effects and is safe with other supplements. Hoodia gordonii is not a stimulant, so there is no nervous feeling when taking this. Dose is 2 caps in the morning and 2 again before meals. See page 25 in the catalog.
