Dear
Bar , ear a
lot about "Hoo-
dia." What is
it and what
should I know
about it? Thanks, A Concerned
Dieter.

A

nsvver: Dear Concerned
Dieter, Technically, Hoodia
is a genus of 13 species of
the flowering plant family, Apocyn-
aceae (a.k.a. dogbane).

Most likely, what you've heard
about is the species, "Hoodia Gor-
dinii" (HG), which is purported to
have medicinal qualities and was
reported about on 60 Min-
utes sometime ago. HG is
native to South Africa and
Namibia and sports flowers
that smell like rotten meat
(‘'./
and are pollinated mainly
by flies (how's that for
,
appetizing?).

HG has long been
known to the indigenous
people of southern
Africa for its reported
medicinal properties:
most famously, suppress-
ing appetite. The active ingredient
in HG that is believed to possess
appetite-suppressing qualities has
been named, "P57."

In 2002, The American drug com-
pany, Pfizer, Inc., abandoned its ef-
forts to synthesize P57, suggesting
to some that the substance lacked
efficacy. To date, HG has not been
approved by the FDA and there has
been no published scientific evi-
dence that HG suppresses appetite
in humans. I hope this helps.
