How does hoodia and high blood pressure relates to each other and to your health? With Hoodia losing weight is possible, thereby lowering your high blood pressure. It is marketed in the US since 2004 as a natural appetite suppressant, and a great weight loss product with no side effects.
As we all know weight loss relates to the lowering of blood pressure levels.
The African San Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert eat this succulent plant to ward off hunger and thirst when making long extended hunting trips into the desert. The active ingredient within this powerful plant that suppresses appetite is called p57.
This ingredient p57 was discovered by a research done by scientist at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in South Africa on the San Bushmen. These scientist working with a British company named Phytopharm discovered this active ingredient, a steroidal glycoside, which they named p57.
Pfizer also heard about this suppressant and did a research on the hoodia gordonii.
They stated that appetites were suppressed but there were indications of unwanted effects on the liver caused by components other than the active ingredient p57 that could not be easily removed during processing.
In this day and age of us all taking some type of pills for either blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, or a million other ailments and diseases, using a diet suppressant can be deadly. As we have read over the years, some appetite suppressants do increase heart rates and high blood pressure.
But they are saying Hoodia seems not to have any type of stimulant. Hoodia tricks the brain into thinking that your blood sugar levels are okay. You do not feel hunger or thirst which can make a person become dehydrated without realizing it before it is too late.
So drinks a lot of water when taking this appetite suppressant. Water is our life blood, so be careful if you decide to take hoodia and high blood pressure is present.
Before taking any supplements you should do some research and have a discussion with your doctor. And, if you are on any type of medication, you should make sure your doctor monitor your progress just to be safe.
Types of Hoodia Products on the market are powder, liquid, patches and sprays.
I am told the liquid form is most often sold because it is believed to be the most effective form and is absorbed much faster into the body than pills.
In your quest to lose weight, make sure the combination of hoodia and high blood pressure is safe and do not affect your heart, liver or your brain.
