    I have seen reports on Hoodia helps with your appetite.

    Has anyone tried it? And can anyone share info about it?

    Thanks!!

    Hi Cindy -
    I have tried Hoodia and found that it did help curb appetite for me.

    I used just Hoodia alone. No other ingredients. I have high blood pressure so guarana, super concentrated green tea and caffeine that are also in so many hoodia supplements are out for me.

    The other weight-loss supplements with multiple ingredients gave me such a metallic taste in my mouth, I was concerned about heavy metal contamination (too much chromium) and stopped taking them.

    Since I am on Adderall to help combat the fatigue right now, I stopped taking the hoodia. The Adderall is curbing the appetite for me.

    In my opinion, hoodia helps but it is by no means a "miracle" drug. I also changed my diet drastically to all freshly prepared foods and my main source of carbs on a daily basis is rice.

    Good luck, whatever you decide.

    I purchased Hoodia Extract 250mg capsules from Source Naturals.
    I am going to start it tomorrow to see how it works.

    I use Hoodia Gordonii DEX-L10, available at major chain drugstores or online at drugstore.com.

    I just checked and the ProHealth store has it as a single-ingredient supplement as well!
