This weight loss product is one of the worst out there. The pills are huge and hard to swallow. Omg the taste it left in my mouth after I swallowed them, eww was really bad. I bought it because a friend recommended it but honestly it's not even worth trying it for free. This product is just bad bad bad and please try to avoid it as much as you ca. Effectiveness I used it as was instructed, the first week has a different dose from the second week from the third week and beyond. It is not effective at all. I used a while bottle I think it was 100 pills or something, did not assist with my weight loss and diet at all. Then I tried half of a second bottle thinking that's I may need to give it sometime to work. Nope, nothing improved. I actually started feeling worse and I was in pain because of it. Side Effects Where do I start. Omg so many side effects. The first one was a consistent severe case of heartburn. This started back during the first bottle about two weeks after using this product but I did not pay attention thinking that I might have been eating something. Then it kept going during the second bottle. The second worst side effect is that it really messed up my period. I did not get my period until after two months from stopping taking the pills. Now my heartburn has gone and my period is back to normal. I do not recommend this product at all.
