About the Hoodia Diet

There has been a lot of talk in recent years about Hoodia gordonii and how it helps dieters control their appetite. While there is no published scientific evidence of hoodia as a natural appetite suppressant, the Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert have been using it for hundreds of years. They chew it fresh to suppress their appetite and thirst while away on extended hunts. The Hoodia Ice Cube diet plan gives you 100% hoodia for maximum hunger control. In addition to the hoodia ice cubes, you receive a sensible diet plan that is easy to maintain.

About the Hoodia Plant

Hoodia gordonii is a succulent cactus-like plant that is found is the deserts of West Africa. The plant is now nurtured commercially in Southern Israel by Kibbutz Yotvata, as the climate there is very much the same as the Kalahari. The genus of Hoodia is under watch for possible extinction. The government strictly controls the import and export of Hoodia. What many people don’t know is that Hoodia gordonii is not the only hoodia plant. There are several others in the genus and many of them also have medicinal qualities that are used by the native population. While H. gordonii is best known for its appetite suppression H. currori has been used to treat hypertension, diabetes, indigestion and stomachache. H. piliferum has been used for its cool, watery taste.

Taking Advantage of Consumers

Unfortunately, there are always those who see a trend and want to capitalize on it, whether they can provide a true product or not. This has been the case with many claiming to have H. gordonii in their weight loss pills. Lawsuits have been filed in several states in the U.S. against companies whose product contained hardly any H. gordonii if they had any at all. Independent laboratory testing has proven many of these companies were conning the public.

The Real Thing

So, why the Ice Cube Diet? Independent testing has shown that the way Desert Labs (that produces the Ice Cube Diet), creates a product that is 200% more potent than any dried pill on the market, and here is why. Most hoodia is chopped and then dried for exportation and processing. This means heating the product, which removes a great deal of the hoodia’s potency. The hoodia in the Ice Cube Diet is processed within 24 hour of harvesting. It is then fresh frozen with a bit of lemon or pomegranate flavor. The only way to get if fresher and full of its natural ingredients is to go to the Kalahari and pick it yourself.
