Dear Anja
I am not a herbalist, but I notice that some of the ingredients in this product will cause diarrhoea and/or have a diuretic effect. If you use the product and suffer from diarrhoea all the time you may develop nutrient deficiencies and lose the normal function of your digestive tract. The use of diuretics can also lead to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances, so I would personally not take this diet pill.
Do take care
