  • Human studies

    Have there been human studies yet done on Hoodia or is this something that has only been performed on mice or other animals? I always forget if it's this herb or another one that essentially has been found to have some appetite suppressing qualities but it's only been seen in rats or something. I'm just wondering because it feels like hoodia has been on the market forever and it's really weird that no study has ever really found it to be all that impressive.

    I think it's been studied in humans. I think it just doesn't work.

      I agree with anne, I also think this one has been studied on humans for weight loss. I think you might be thinking of garcinia cambogia which hasn't. Essentially, the issue is that hoodia just doesn't seem to work. I think it might have reduced appetite or something (the p57 molecule in the plant of whatever) but not in any way that lead to weight loss. Plus, most of the hoodia on the market isn't pure and who knows how much you'd actually need for it to work.

        There has been small studies conducted on humans but nothing that's ever made it to a reputable journal. To this day many scientists and doctors remain skeptical about the effects of hoodia's appetite suppression on humans. It's just not likely and a lot more studies would need to be conducted to really investigate the claims made about this plant. Personally, I think it's one of those things that if you want to try it, try it (as long as it's not unsafe to do so) and see if anything positive happens. That said I wouldn't get your hopes up that it actually works. There's zero science to prove that it does.
