There is little or no research done on the effectiveness of the Hoodia when used in combination with other supplements and thus to be on the safer side it is always best to go with a very mild usage.

Thus, using Hoodia with green tea might be very productive and useful in controlling hunger but it is better to be safe and not use it much until the scientific results are out after proper researches are done.

Formation of glucose is controlled and the process of formation of blood sugars as well is reduced by green tea.
