HomeWhat is the difference between Hoodia Gordonii refined Powder and Hoodia Gordonii 20:1 extract?
As stated in the above answer the Hoodia Gordonii refined powder is the closest you can get to natural Hoodia Gordonii succulent and it’s specific botanical markers are easily identifiable.
However the theory is if you take 20 lbs of Hoodia Gordonii Succulent and you extract it through an extreme heat and alcohol process you will end up with a compound that is 20 (twenty) times stronger than it’s original mass.
Remember I said “In Theory” because it might be 20 (twenty) times stronger than the original material but that doesn’t necessarily meant that it’s going to have 20 (twenty) times more of the substance that you are wanting i.e. the P57 molecule.
Two huge suppliers of Hoodia Capsules in America found this out, when both of their products claimed to have Hoodia Gordonii 20:1 extract in them but when they were independently tested there was no discernable Hoodia Gordonii found in them let alone the P57 molecule. (Both companies have since switched over to using all natural Hoodia Gordonii Succulent refined powder in their products.)
There is a scientific problem as well and that is that the natural Hoodia Gordonii Succulents isolated markers that are identifiable in every Hoodia Gordonii Succulent plant in the world is molecularly changed during the extraction process and therefore it is scientifically impossible to identify the original organic material used once it’s been through the extraction process.
