There are no known side effects from taking genuine hoodia
gordonii. Hopefully, careful testing and research will show
that there really arenít any side effects, especially after
long term use. The San people were not known to take hoodia
on a regular basis, only when on long trips in the desert.
Since we wish to use hoodia gordonii as an appetite
suppressant, we will probably take hoodia gordonii
frequently and on a long term basis. Therefore, there will
probably be concerns that may not be experienced by the San
In the meantime, the products currently sold as
hoodia gordonii contain many other ingredients, some of
which are known to cause side effects such as diarrhea,
lethargy, nausea, heart palpitations, nervousness, dry
mouth, dizziness, and more. If you are experiencing any side
effects, please discontinue taking the product and consult
your physician as soon as possible.
