Dear Tazzy
Thank you for the feedback. If it has phyto-hormonal properties, then it may either promote weight loss or gain in similar fashion to other female hormonal products. Just be aware of any negative side-effects when using this herbal, because they can also cause diarrhoea, etc, despite the fact that they are extracted from plants.
