Dex L10 Hoodia Gordonii - Beware Dex L10 Hoodia Gordonii

weight people product appetite

Everyone knows that obesity is a huge problem in the United States, but no one wants to really work to reduce it. Everyone wants to believe that somewhere there exists a magic pill that instantly melt away all the fat and bring your body into good health without having to diet or exercise. For this reason, weight loss supplements are a multimillion dollar business that continues to empty the wallets of suckers that buy them without providing any results. Of course, after the products are found to be ineffective, people stop buying them, so the manufacturers close up shop, rename their company, and put together a new product of ineffective ingredients that are bought by the same people that wasted all their money on the last product. The newest product making its rounds in this ad infinitum circle of madness is Dex L10 Hoodia Gordonii.

Dex L10 Hoodia Gordonii is made by Delmar Labs and comes as a capsule or a chewable tablet. It would be nice to tell you a little about the company, but they have decided to take their website, the one that is advertised on bottles of Dex L10 Hoodia Gordonii, offline so that no one can research or contact them. Dex L10 Hoodia Gordonii is advertised as being primarily made of hoodia gordonii extract.

Hoodia gordonii the Latin name of a cactus that grows in South Africa and Nambia. It is known for smelling like rotting meat and for being used by the indigenous people of the area as a traditional remedy for indigestion, minor infection, and as an appetite suppressant for men going out on long hunting parties. The exact chemical in hoodia gordonii was said to be isolated by the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and is now known as P57. The large drug manufacturer, Pfizer, experimented with P57 as an appetite suppressant but have since abandoned all related projects because it was difficult to synthesize and produced a number of detrimental side effects on the liver.

Dried hoodia gordonii is still sold in many markets as an appetite suppressant even though exporting the plant is closely monitored due to the species being threatened by unsupervised harvesting and marketing. There have been no scientific studies that have been published in peer-reviewed journals as to the effectiveness of hoodia gordonii as an appetite suppressant. Its ability to help people lose weight has been harshly criticized by leading health experts. It has also been denied an official recommendation by Consumer Reports in 2006.

In addition to Dex L10 Hoodia Gordonii, several other supplements have been introduced with hoodia gordonii as the main ingredient. After a scandal in which several products purporting to contain hoodia gordonii were found to contain none of the plant in independent tests, a standard for testing of the presence of hoodia gordonii was established. One of the products under question for containing little or no hoodia gordonii is Dex L10 Hoodia Gordonii. The company is currently being sued for making false claims about their product. Included in the law suit are Breakthrough Engineered Nutrition and Geopharma.

It has been established that hoodia gordonii has no scientific merit in helping an individual to lose weight, so it is really up to each person whether they want to use it, even if there are side effects to doing so, but a far worse danger is posed by taking Dex L10 Hoodia Gordonii – the danger of taking some unknown substance that may be completely untested.

There are no shortcuts to weight loss. The only sure and safe way to lose weight is through diet and exercise. No one should put their health or their very lives in danger by taking unproven and possibly dangerous substances such as Dex L10 Hoodia Gordonii.
