Hoodia Gordonii USA

People have asked us where to buy hoodia pills in USA stores. Major retail giants like GNC offer some hoodia supplements, but hoodia gordonii does not grow in the United States, so all genuine hoodia gordonii is imported from Africa.

The major concern in buying hoodia gordonii from any supplement company is quality. If a hoodia gordonii USA product is not genuine hoodia gordonii then the appetite will not be suppressed. Dissatisfied customers have reported problems with some hoodia products. Sometimes, another hoodia product allows them to achieve their goals. Anyone who has access to the internet can investigate a product before they buy it. Perhaps the best answer to where to buy hoodia pills in USA stores is to investigate the product, before you buy it.

DexL 10 is a product sold by GNC that, according to the label, supplies 500mg of hoodia gordonii. According to the company, their product has been analyzed by independent laboratories and is genuine hoodia gordonii. However a sample evaluated by Alkemists Pharmaceuticals for Hoodia, a South African non-profit company interested in providing accurate information about hoodia supplements, showed a near zero trace of hoodia gordonii and they could not confirm the presence of the p57 molecule in the tested sample. P57 is believed to be the active molecule in hoodia gordonii according to the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in South Africa. The CSIR was the first to report that hoodia gordonii caused weight loss in lab animals, but not due to any apparent toxic effect. Perhaps, the question should be; where can we buy genuine hoodia gordonii USA products. And the best answer to this question may be the internet.

The other products sold by GNC are hoodia herb combos. There have been no studies into the effectiveness or safety of combining hoodia gordonii with other botanicals. Most hoodia herb combos contain stimulants and stimulants can cause a variety of unwanted side effects. People looking for natural genuine hoodia gordonii USA products may need to buy them from the internet. Desert Burn does has one outlet in New Jersey. Desert Burn is an American based company and their hoodia gordonii has been authenticated by several independent laboratories including Alkemists Pharmaceuticals for Hoodia

The other consideration about where to buy hoodia pills in USA stores is dosage. While there is no accepted standard dosage to achieve appetite suppression from hoodia gordonii, must people report that it takes about 3000mg per day. This means that if a product contains only 500mg per capsule and the average bottle contains 30 capsules, then one must buy two bottles per month. This can be expensive, since even the least expensive products cost about $40 per bottle. Maybe the best hoodia gordonii USA products are sold only on the internet.
