This medicine is a diet supplement Not Approved by FDI of USA, it reacts with lots of medicines used by heart patients like High BP medicines beta blockers & statins to bring down bad fats in blood. Side effects are not known , reason it is not approved but why do people take it as a diet supplement , even I have no idea. My suggestion is take a healthy diet Minus any supplements except routine vitamins in low doses.
