Dear Blondi
I recently wrote an article for the DietDoc Website on 'Hype about Hoodia', which you can read if you click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then do a search on the DietDoc Website with 'Hoodia' as your search term. Basically we don't know at present if any of the products being sold actually contain proper Hoodia extract and at what level. So we also don't know if they are going to work. Research is taking place at the moment that will answer all these questions, but until the research has been completed, there are no guarantees about Hoodia products and if they will assist slimming or not, and if they cause side-effects. Stick to your exercise and diet because that is still the safest way of losing weight.
Best regards
