P57 is one the molecules that makes Hoodia diet pills and Hoodia liquid extremely effective for appetite suppression and weight loss. P57 works by signaling the brain that the body is no longer hungry — it has been scientifically proven to decrease calorie consumption by as much as 1,000 calories per day. (This effect is demonstrated in the graph to the right.)
While P57 does contribute to Hoodia gordonii’s appetite suppression, it is widely believe that Hoodia’s power comes from the combined effects of all of Hoodia’s components. The synergistic effect results in significant weight loss results.
