Snack Less Hoodia Gum - 3 Pack
Snacking Too Much?
We do it in the car, on the train, in front of the TV, on the phone, and even in bed. For too many of us, snacking has become so automatic that our brains barely register the hand-to-mouth motion. And it's not as if we're all reaching for diet-friendly apples: A 2010 study from the University of North Carolina found that most of us eat nearly 600 calories a day — roughly a third of our food — in snacks rather than meals.

For thousands of years the Hoodia plant has been eaten by an ancient African tribe, the San People of the Kalahari Desert, to ward off hunger and maintain energy during long hunting trips. They shave the spines from the skin of this succulent cactus like plant and consume it fresh.
How does Hoodia curb appetite?
Normally, when we eat, glucose levels rise. This increase is sensed by the brain’s hypothalamus, which registers the “I’m full” message, so we stop eating, typically about 20 minutes later. Like blood sugar, P57 signals the brain that the body feels full and satisfied, but Hoodia works faster to signal the hypothalamus that you’re full. So you’ll eat less.
