Hoodia Vex






Summary


Hoodia Vex is a diet pill that helps you lose weight while also clearing your skin.


Description


Hoodia Vex is a diet pill that contains a number of ingredients, including the well-known diet compound Hoodia. The other ingredients in Hoodia Vex are based on the "10 best foods" concept (similar to Orovo).

In this case, the 10 foods came from a Time magazine article: "10 Foods That Pack a Wallop". These 10 foods are: Broccoli, Spinach, Garlic, Salmon, Oatmeal, Tomatoes, Nuts, Blueberries, Green Tea, and Red Wine. Most of these foods are good sources of important nutrients like vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants.

Hoodia is a cactus-like plant from Africa that has been shown to curb one's appetite. It has become somewhat common in diet products in recent years.

Similar to Orovo, Hoodia Vex also claims to help get rid of acne.


Criticism


While it's unlikely that these pills could do you any damage, it's also unlikely that you would help you very much. The 10 foods are indeed good for you. But, the amount of them in the pill is so small, that it doesn't really matter. The point of these 10 healthy foods is to actually eat those foods. The idea doesn't transfer well to a pill. Must is lost in the process.

A similar issue exists with Hoodia. While, it's true that Hoodia has been show to have a marvelous ability to reduce people's appetite and thus promote weight-loss, it only works when it's eaten in significant quantities, and this costs. The amount of Hoodia in pills like this is not even close to the amount you'd really need to have an effect.

This stuff is a scam. It's expensive and leaves you feeling stupid with an empty wallet.

I am a 34 year old mother of 4, I have tried Hoodia Vex and yes, it does help- it might not help everyone, but my face has cleared up and I will start getting hungry around 11 am for lunch but I'll take a couple capsules and wait 20 or so minutes and I ususally forget about lunch- I don't feel hungry, just empty, so I'll eat something small. It's been great for me-

I wonder if the people that posted negative comments on Hoodiavex actually have facts to back up their opinions? Really, I am curious because I am all for really "knowing" what your taking and if its a gimmick then it's a gimmick but is there facts to prove it??
