Side effects of hoodia are still unknown
There are no published long-term studies on the safety of hoodia. Just because it has been used for thousands of years doesn't mean it is safe. The San Bushmen are a tribe of hunter-gatherers. They do not take pills for blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, depression, and other diseases, like we do.
Hoodia extract simply hasn't reached a wide enough market yet or undergone safety testing to know what the side effects, drug interactions, and safety concerns are, if any.
People with diabetes should be particularly cautious. Because hoodia extract tricks the brain into thinking that it has enough blood sugar, it's possible that a person's blood sugar could drop dangerously low while taking hoodia. With the regular hunger mechanism turned off, the normal warning signs may be suppressed -- until it's too late.
There are no studies evaluating the use hoodia extract during pregnancy, lactation, in children, and by people with chronic conditions such as heart, kidney, or liver disease.
