Has anyone tried Hoodia? I'm interested in it because it's not a stimulant and as far as I know there aren't any side effect. So I'm really curious to know what others have experienced with it.

I tried it and it completely eliminated my appetite, but it also gave me some weird kind of heart pain and palpitations.  I found out it contains chemicals similar to cardiac glycosides.  I had to stop it; not worth it IMO.    It is NOT side effect free.
