Garcinia Cambogia is the most popular weight loss supplement and among the most effective natural weight loss supplements worldwide.

This supplement is also popular worldwide – especially in western countries. Green coffee bean is just as the name states. You can purchase the green beans and ground them to extract the juice, swallow a teaspoon full of fresh grounds or purchase them in capsule form from almost any health or food store. Green coffee bean contains Chlorogenic acid which is an effective appetite suppressant. Chlorogenis acid is depleted with heat treatment so roasting or boiling coffee beans for weigh loss purpose makes them ineffective. Green coffee bean supplements are usually non-stimulating, won’t cause jitters or crashes and is relatively safe to take over long periods of time. It is recommended that you have a full glass of water with each green coffee bean capsule and wait at least 30 minutes before eating.

Hoodie is another plant from the cactus family that grows mostly in the desert regions of Africa. Unfortunately Hoodia is currently classed an endangered species and there are limitations on the extraction of the plant. The flower of the cactus really stinks, but the plant has a very attractive appearance. Hoodia is a known appetite suppressant and was used by native Bushmen for many centuries to stave off hunger and fight certain ailments. Its active ingredient is a molecule called oxypregnane steroidal glycoside or molecule P57.
