Although patches were once quite rare in the weight loss industry, they are becoming much more commonplace recently, but Shape Patch Slimming Patches added themselves to this category back in 1992, well before this type of product was mainstream. The promise behind this product is that it will help a dieter to lose weight with less effort, and that it will be accomplished without the need for swallowing pills. The manufacturer of this specific product is calling it an all natural alternative method of weight loss as well as a method of keeping the weight off, through the suppression of hunger pangs.

The manufacturers claim that the ingredients – which it states are all natural – when combined to become the Shape Patch Slimming Patches formula, function as a type of stimulant to the thyroid gland, which allows the user to experience an energy boost, while the metabolic rate also rises and the appetite shrinks. Because of this, it claims that this product will help a dieter to eat less and burn more calories, at the same time. In fact, it promises that in the first half month of use, the user will experience between 4 and 8 pounds of weight loss.

Supposedly, this product stands out from other slimming patches because of the exclusive herbal extraction process that allows the properties of each ingredient to remain intact. That said, when looking at the ingredients that make up the formula, it is likely that it really wouldn’t matter what technique was used for obtaining the extracts, it likely wouldn’t be any more effective. The reason is that the ingredients are not scientifically proven and are based more on weight loss fads than any actual human evidence that they assist in losing weight. Moreover, there is no evidence that the patch will allow this product to be transported to any part of the body in which it would be effective, even if the formula was perfect.

The ingredients listed in Shape Patch Slimming Patches are: hoodia, garcinia cambogia, and bladderwrack. A one month supply of this product was $49.95 plus shipping at the time that this review was written. Though this is competitive with other products that contain similar ingredients, there is no more evidence that this one would work when compared to the other ones.

It is highly unlikely that, upon consulting a doctor, a recommendation would be made for the use of this product.

Hoodiadrene is a form of diet supplement that is made of the very popular and yet unproven extract of hoodia gordonii. In this case, however, it is combined with a fat burning formulation that is called Z Plex. Although most evidence at the moment suggests that hoodia diet pills don’t have much to offer dieters, it is only fair to examine the manufacturer and the formula further to give this product a chance as it may be worth a try despite the fact that its name links it to more hype than substance.

These pills are manufactured by a large supplement producer called Newton Everett Biotech, which is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona. It is distributed by another large company, called Biovea.

Although hoodia based products are typically marketed as being appetite suppressants, in this case, the supplement is said to be a powerful thermogenic. Pills of this nature are said to function by increasing the body temperature so that more calories can be burned off as heat instead. This can give a small boost to the fat burning of an inactive dieter or can help to considerably increase the fat burner of someone who exercises while using the product – particularly when using cardiovascular exercise.

This does, however, also suggest that Hoodiadrene – like all thermogenics – will be associated with some uncomfortable side effects, despite the fact that he website advertises that there are no dangerous side effects associated with this product. The issue is that many of the ingredients in the formula, such as synephrine and caffeine, are powerful stimulants that are associated with side effects. Synephrine, especially, has had its safety questioned many times and is connected to side effects such as increased blood pressure, higher heart rate, headache, nervousness, jitters, sleeplessness, and more.

According to the directions on the package for Hoodiadrene, the first ten days require the product to be taken three times per day, with three capsules taken at each meal (for a total of nine capsules per day). After that time, the dose is reduced to one capsule taken three times per day with meals, in the case that the dieter feels that it was too strong for the first ten days. Considering the claims that the distributer made that there are no strong side effects connected with its use, it is interesting that the instructions provide a recommendation in the case that the product’s effects are too strong.

The conflicting nature of the information provided about Hoodiadrene makes it a good idea to avoid it and choose a more reliable product for weight loss, instead.

Hoodia Bites are among hundreds of different weight loss products that are currently available for sale and that include the greatly hyped ingredient from which it has been named. If you are considering the use of this product, you may be interested in considering the ingredients, first, so that you can identify the difference – or lack thereof – between it and the other options that are based on hoodia.

Although hoodia has been marketed as a “magic bullet” for weight loss, there have been no major studies on this ingredient that have shown that a capsule, caplet, or tablet that contains it can help in weight loss or even that they are safe for use by humans. This ingredient is essentially untested, but it has not stopped dozens upon dozens of supplement manufacturers from making weight loss claims about it.

What is different about Hoodia Bites is that instead of coming in the form of a pill to swallow, it is a chocolate flavored chew. The claims about it are the same as other hoodia based pill products, but this one promises to begin working in five minutes.

The ingredient’s popularity is based on the story behind its use by southern African tribesmen who used to chew the native succulent (a cactus like plant) when they were on long journeys in the desert when they would not be able to bring enough food with them. A molecule called P57 is the active ingredient in this plant. Despite a great deal of hype, no reputable medical or clinical study has said that this molecule can produce any effects that will lead to a reduction in body fat.

On the official website for Hoodia Bites, there is reference to a small study that a Dr. Goldfarb has conducted with the participation of seven patients. It indicated that the ingredient was effective. That said, this study was extremely tiny, was not placebo controlled, and was never officially written up for publication in a peer reviewed journal.

The ingredients in this formula include 250 milligrams of hoodia gordonii. That is the only active ingredient and the rest are simply the substances that make up the capsule, itself.

Before considering the use of Hoodia Bites, it is highly recommended that you speak with your doctor. The odds are that he or she will recommend another strategy – and possibly another diet pill – to help you to more safely and effectively reach your weight loss goals.

SlimZil is a weight loss pill that is manufactured by Life Smart Labs. That company is also the manufacturer of a number of other diet supplements as well as energy boosters and male and female enhancement products.

Many of the products on the Life Smart Labs list are based on hoodia or acai, and SlimZil is certainly no exception to that rule. Its ingredients are not fully listed on the website. Instead, it simply states that it is a “high potency” product that contains “Acai, Hoodia, Green Tea, and more.” This doesn’t provide the dieter with very much information, except that many of the ingredients in its formula are based more on hype than having been scientifically proven to reach weight loss goals.

Acai berry was the center of a massively overhyped scam in which a fruit from the Amazon region was suddenly labeled as a dieting miracle – even though absolutely no clinical evidence suggested that it promoted weight loss in any way. It didn’t take long for research to indicate that while this is a very healthy food that is quite high in antioxidants, it provided no greater weight loss benefit to eating any other source of antioxidants, such as blueberries – essentially, nothing at all.

Hoodia is a cactus like plant from Africa which has been involved in a similar type of hype. Regardless of the fact that the best scientific research has been conflicting, and there have not been any safety or effectiveness studies performed on humans – particularly in the supplement form as opposed to eating the plant, itself – many companies promise that it is a miracle ingredient for suppressing the appetite. Never has it been linked with actual weight loss.

Green tea has been shown to boost calorie burning when taken in exceptionally high quantities, but as SlimZil’s full ingredients list and substance quantities have not been revealed, it is impossible to know whether enough has been used for any impact at all.

As the full ingredients list has not been provided and the information about the product on the official website is exceptionally minimal, and as the ingredients that are identified are based on hype, not science, it is likely a better idea to look elsewhere for a safe and effective weight loss solution. If you are considering this product, it is highly recommended that you speak with your doctor, first, as the odds are that he or she will try to talk you out of it.

Hoodia Mint is a weight loss supplement that contains hoodia and xylitol, which is designed to give the product a fresh and minty flavor. Each of the tablets provides the user with a serving of 1000 mg of hoodia, which is a greatly hyped substance that is claimed to help to suppress the appetite, despite the fact that supplements containing this ingredient have never been successfully proven in reputable scientific study to accomplish this goal, nor have they been tested on humans for safe use.

The story behind the popularity of hoodia comes from the history of its use among the Bushmen of the Kalahari desert in Africa. They would use the cactus like plant to help stave off hunger in times of famine or when heading off on long hunting trips in which they could not return home to eat. This traditional use of the substance has led many diet product manufacturers to claim that the extracts from this plant will help dieters to reduce their hunger and therefore lose weight more easily. However, it has never been shown that the processed version of the plant can help to reduce the appetite, and clinical research on humans have not proven it safe. At the moment, hoodia appears to be more hype than substance.

Xylitol is a common form of sweetener that helps to give the product a minty taste along with the peppermint and vanilla flavorings that it contains. None of those substances are linked with weight loss, but are meant only to make sure that the product has a pleasing taste.

What makes this product different from other hoodia based supplements on the market is that this tablet can be chewed, sucked on, or swallowed whole. This may be very appealing to dieters who struggle to be able to swallow pills. The recommended dosage of this product is three tablets on a daily basis. Every package of Hoodia Mint contains 21 tablets. Therefore, if taken according to the directions, it provides enough of the product for one week of use.

Another unique element to this product is the minty taste. This not only makes it more palatable, but it also helps to combat what they have labeled as “dieters breath”, which can occur when bacteria accumulates in the mouth because fewer calories are being consumed.

Overall, the actual claims – other than breath improvements – have not been medically proven.

Mega Hoodia is a weight loss pill manufactured by Vipro Lifescience. The official website mentioned the product and that it is designed to be an ayurvedic and herbal slimming product, but that is essentially the extent of the information that could be found at the time that this review was written. Therefore, the information in this review was gleaned from third party websites selling the product and other professional and consumer reviews.

As far as could be found, it looks as though Mega Hoodia’s only active ingredient is 500 mg of hoodia gordonii. This is a cactus like plant from South Africa that has been a part of one of the most widely hyped weight loss crazes in North America and other parts of the world. This caused a tremendous wave of products based on this ingredient (or versions of it) to hit the shelves. Unfortunately, there was far more enthusiasm than there was evidence that the ingredient actually worked.

The basis for the popularity of the main ingredient in Mega Hoodia was that it had traditionally been used by bush people in the area local to where it grows naturally in order to help to suppress the appetite at times when food was scarce, and by hunters who would be away for long periods of time and could not return to their homes for food while they were on their expeditions.

So far, science has been showing that dieters taking products based on hoodia do not lose any more weight than they would without it. This is not specific to Mega Hoodia, but as the only active ingredient in that product is hoodia, it likely does apply. Although these announcements caused many products based on hoodia to fail, Mega Hoodia has managed to hang in there.

This may be because it contains a great deal more of the ingredient than most of its competition. The average supplement with hoodia contains about 250 mg. Clearly, Mega Hoodia contains double that average amount in each serving, which is two pills.

The manufacturer also stands out in that it now claims to have a CITES certificate for the hoodia that they import for the product. This is not a common achievement in hoodia products as it is an expensive process and it does require some effort to do it legitimately. Equally, its certification does not mean that it is effective. The FDA has released a warning about hoodia as its safety and effectiveness have not been properly tested in humans.

It should be no surprise that one of the primary ingredients in the HoodiaTherm weight loss pill is hoodia gordonii. This ingredient has received a tremendous amount of media attention as a controversial method for helping people to lose weight. The reason for the controversy is that there is no scientific evidence by a reputable medical study to show that hoodia actually improves weight loss.

Some providers of HoodiaTherm claim that it is manufactured by the company United Healthcare Labs, which is registered in Spokane, WA. No contact information for that company is available through official websites or on the marketing materials.

That being said, other sellers of HoodiaTherm claim that its manufacturer is PrideTech Labs, which has a phone number that is hooked up exclusively to a voicemail service. If that company’s official site is visited, it lists itself as being registered in Pico Rivera, CA.

Due to the unreliable information posted across the internet about HoodiaTherm, it is difficult to review this weight loss pill with any accuracy. The ingredients in HoodiaTherm are not listed and an “official” site cannot be located since there are many different companies claiming to be its manufacturer.

For this reason, many would not recommend HoodiaTherm if only because of the unreliability of information and uncertainty. Even if you believe that this weight loss pill is the right one for you, it is still extremely important that you first speak with your doctor and let him or her know of your intentions to try this product. He or she will be able to better advise you regarding potential conflicts with any medical conditions that you may have or any drugs – prescription or over the counter – that you are already taking or that you will be taking at the same time as the HoodiaTherm.

Next, be very careful regarding where you order the drug. As there are so many different unreliable sources of information and sale of this drug online, you need to be especially cautious that you are using a website or store that is reputable and won’t simply take your money – and credit card information – and run. It isn’t difficult to see places that are charging up to ten dollars for the free trial! Keep in mind that if only shipping is being charged, that is a perfectly valid way of offering a free trial, and you are not facing a scam.
