I will give a special prize (yes I will find a way to deliver it to you no matter which continent or planet you originate from) to anyone of you who can tell me what a hoodia is… Any takers? If you do not know and are curious then by all means, read on.

A hoodia is actually a genus of thirteen species in the flowering plant family known as Apocynaceae, which is under the subfamily of Asclepiadoideae. They are actually stem succulents, described as "cactiform" due to its remarkable similarity to the unrelated cactus family.

Some surprising facts about hoodias is that they can reach up to one metre in height (almost as tall as me!) and have large flowers, often with flesh colour and strong smell. Most Hoodia species are protected plants while several species are grown in homes as garden plants.

One species known as Hoodia Gordonii, is being investigated for use as an appetite suppressant. Yes you heard me right. Appetite suppresant. It is something that I need in a large quantity and can never get enough of for as long as I live. At least, as long as there are tempting and salivacious food around.
