Hoodia Authenticity

Posted by admin on Tuesday 10 November 2009

With the increase in the popularity of Hoodia Gordonii’s, there has been an explosion in the amount of companies who mislead customers by selling strains that are either not from African strains of the plant or have been genetically altered. 

Authentic South African Hoodia Gordonii takes as long as 7 years to grow and harvest and is very rare. 

Recently, Hoodia has come under the protection of the United Nations and the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna) initiative.

This means Hoodia Gordonii is pure, legally grown and strictly regulated for export to the USA by the South African government and the United Nations. CITES is recognized by all UN countries to protect endangered wildlife and plants.  This agreement makes importing or exporting goods that are not properly certified a criminal activity.

A Hoodia Gordonii product for sale without the required testing certification as proof of authenticity should be highly avoided.  Buyers must be highly aware of the risk of being deceived by these products.
