Your age plays a part in your weight also. Glucomannan Plus Review When people age, they typically become less active. Also, after age 30 or so, an inactive person will lose around ½ to 1 pound of muscle tissue per year. This makes your metabolism slow down being that muscle is active tissue and the more you have, the higher your metabolism, the less you have, the lower your metabolism. This will account for weight gain.Most overweight people are not that way because of the genes they inherited, but because of the bad habits they inherited as well as ones they developed on their own.

Not a drug really but a plant extract made from the Hoodia "Cactus" well it looks like a cactus, but it's actually a succulent from the Kalahari Desert in Southern Africa. It seems Bushmen from the area have been using Hoodia for centuries chewing on this "cactus" to alleviate hunger and thirst on long hunts where prey is tracked over hundreds of miles.
It only grows in a very specific environment, mainly South Africa. Because of this the demand for Hoodia products has far out paced the production of Hoodia cactus. Which of course has not only driven prices up but also created a whole underground market of fake and/or very low dosage Hoodia products. Many products advertise Hoodia extract but read the label and look for a product that is made from pure South African Hoodia Gordonii. Many Hoodia producers dilute their supplements in order to create a lower cost, and therefore make a lower grade product.
The bottle must say 100% Pure South African Gordonii, accept no substitutes.Hoodia Gordonii is entirely natural; it is not a drug. The drug companies, however, on the lookout for the next "wonder" drug - read "Cash Cow" like Viagra, are already hard at work trying to isolate the appetite-suppressing molecule in Hoodia to create a patented diet drug to "help" the approximately fifty million Americans that are attempting to slim down. For now quality Hoodia is either pure Hoodia, or Hoodia in a formula, from the Kalahari Desert areas of South Africa. Hoodia from Texas, Mexico or China has not been shown in clinical trials to suppress appetite and aid in weight loss.
