Dear Lebo
I am basically opposed to the use of all these over-the-counter pills and potions, including the herbal ones. I gather this is another slimming pill? If so, the green tea extract may assist with weightloss, however the other components can cause negative side-effects. For example Ginkgo may cause diarrhoea, nausea, headache, bleeding and bruising; Cassia seed is linked to obesity, irritable bowel disease and psoriasis.
I cannot recommend the use of this product, so please be careful and stop taking it if you experience any strange signs and symptoms.
Best regards
