* I have used many other various brands of Hoodia and this one works great! The benefits are the low affordable price compared to other Hoodia brands & that it controls hunger for about 5-6 hours with 2 caps. It does make you feel full and makes it difficult to eat a large meal. The down side is you have to use it 2-3 times daily or the hunger will return. I take it twice a day and that works fine for me. I would recommend the NOW Mega Hoodia to individuals who what to control their daily food intake.
* This product definitely reduces cravings and the desire to over eat. Unlike many other appetite suppressants, it does not diminish your appetite entirely, but allows you to make better choices at meal time.
* I'm 61 years old and I have been using Mega Hoodia every day for over two years. I take 4 caps in the morning. It doesn't eliminate my appetite - what it does is reduce and control the appetite. There have been times when I have stopped taking Mega Hoodia for a few days and I immediately notice a major increase in my hunger level and appetite. This stuff works - especially when used with common sense eating habits and regular exercise. I haven't experienced any identifiable side effects. This is not a product for a "crash diet." It is a good product for a healthy lifestyle regimen.
* I really like this product because of two things:
(1) It works - - quickly. It dulls the appetite, kind of just pushes the idea of snacks out of my brain because I'm not feeling a growl of hunger every 2 minutes.
(2) It does not turn me into a complete insomniac even if I take it at 5:00 and go to bed at 10:00!
EVERY other appetite-suppressant I have tried failed on one of these two things. Hooray for Mega Hoodia!
* I recently began using this product for the first time. I have tried other products from NOW and have always been satisfied with the results. That is the reason I chose their brand. Once again, they do not disappoint. Mega Hoodia works well for me. So well, in fact, that I am purchasing a refill today!
