  • It's not the most effective route for those. Diet and exercise are.

  • It is very healthy but not associated with helping with weight loss. It is very good for the skin too (can be applied topically and/or ingested).

  • I don't know about weight loss, but I know not to take it if your pregnant cause it can cause you to go into labor.
