The San bushmen have eaten the plant for years

Hoodia: Hoodia is an endemic flowering plant to the semi-arid deserts of South Africa and Namibia.  There are about 20 species in this family. The plants stem and leaves are pale green and grow in a short, upright clump. These plants are quite sensitive requiring a specific amount of sunlight, water and temperature range to flourish. The H. gordonii has recently garnered a large modern following as an all-natural appetite suppressant to help with weight-loss.
