Research studies have shown that certain chemical compounds in green tea may assist with weightloss, so I would imagine that this ingredient in the Ginkgo Green Tea Capsules should help with weightloss and not cause negative side-effects. However, I am sure this product contains other herbal extracts besides the green tea extract, which may be potentially harmful. No matter how 'natural' a product is supposed to be, components such as synephrine, guarana, harsh laxatives and diuretics, etc, can cause a whole lot of negative side-effects, including addiction. Click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page and then on 'Weight Loss' and 'Diet Detective' and compare the ingredients of the Ginkgo Green Tea Capsules with the lists of slimming pill ingredients to see if they can have negative effects and if they can actually contribute to weightloss.
It may be more sensible and economical to use the R550.00 to join a good gym or to buy healthy low-fat, high-fibre foods to lose weight. Click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of a low-fat, high-fibre diet, and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 min a day.
