Hello There. I can understand your concern. Just taking the tablets will not reduce her weight. if she things that by just taking the tablet everyday she will be able to achieve weight loss, then she is wrong and it would be pointless to take the medicines. She can take the tablet twice a day but along with that a proper diet and certain exercises will also be required . Kindly make her aware of this also. she has to drink lots of water also. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Hello Sir, Garcinia Cambodia is nothing but extracts of "Kokum" which is readily available in our markets. Instead of taking artificially prepared garcinia, she can rather drink regular Kokum serbet and perform exercises. Even consumption of garcinia doesn't let you escape work out. Sweating out the excess fat is the only sure way to reduce weight and maintain it. You can contact me if she is still not convinced.
