Hello there,
Garcinia cambogia nowadays is promoted as a weight loss supplement. It works as an appetite suppressant and helps you lose weight by restricting calorie intake. It is fairly safe to use and can be used alongside your thyroid medication. I would still advise you to still squeeze out 45 minutes of exercise a day, If not together then split it into 3 fifteen minute sessions. Just brik walking, taking the stairs instead of the lift, burpees will help you burn extra fat. Also never skip breakfast and try to have light dinners.

Hope this helps,
Please feel free to address any further queries to me,
