Hoodia weight loss formulated for women.
SmartBurn with Hoodia is one of the many vitamin-based supplements manufactured by Iovate Health, the Canadian vita-giant that also produces the "MD" line of supplements. Smart Burn is a vitamin and herbal diet pill intended to improve and regulate mood, while suppressing appetite, to help the individual reduce caloric intake and in turn, lose weight.
Hoodia contains the active ingredient P57, and once metabolized by the body, it tells the brain that it is full. P57 is estimated to be up to 10,000 times more active than glucose in sending the message to the brain that the body is full, therefore acting as an appetite suppressant. SmartBurn can reduce cravings for up to 24 hours.
The makers of SmartBurn have utilized clinical trials with Hoodia, along with the added ingredients of Garcinia cambogia extract, chromium polynicotinate, and Gymnema sylvestre extract, to show that this blend of supplements together provided up to 450% more weight loss for those individuals when compared to a placebo group.

Iovate Health seems to have the "supplement promise" category nailed down, as evidenced by the additional products that they manufacture, including Hydroxycut, Rapid Slim and Cylaris. The inclusion of Hoodia in SmartBurn is a benefit to many, and for those whose excess belly fat is connected to cortisol release as a response to stress, it makes sense that by reducing stress via herbal supplements, one could reduce belly fat.INGREDIENTS
