Will these work ? Hoodia Gordonii Cactus ?

A few months ago I brought some diet pills on ebay, I haven't taken any yet and only brought them out of curisosity, now I have put on a lot of weight I am conidering taking them, I would like to know if they work, the ingredients are:
Hoodi Gordonii
Dicalcium Phosphate
Microcrystalline Cellulose
Magnesium Stearate
Stearic Acid
Silicon Dioxide

Are they likely to work ? They don't say the quantities of each ingredient, and you are supposed to take two a day. With good diet and exercise will it increase my weight loss ?

Also I am on cerazette contraceptive pill, if I were to take these diet pills will it affect my contraceptive pill ?

Many thanks in advance !

Answer on Will these work ? Hoodia Gordonii Cactus ?

Hoodia Gordonii is an appetite suppressant... but if they don't list the quantity of it in the pill (especially if they don't list it on the bottle), I would be very suspicious. Any company that uses even mediocre quality has to list how much of the nutrients are in the pill, so I would be nervous at the least. Is there a toll-free number on the bottle you can call? I'd call them and ask. If there is no contact info either, I would throw it out and cut your losses... better to lose the few dollars than to get sick (or worse) from them.

If you find yourself being hungry all the time, an appetite suppressant like Hoodia might help a lot, but I would stick with one from your local health food store or a company you trust. Personally, I wouldn't buy something that sensitive on eBay and I love buying things on eBay.
Good luck and I hope I helped!
