Hello,

It is better not to use this product. Although you might reduce weight, the chemicals inside will cause serious harm even putting you at risk for cancer. I think it's not worthy.

The secret to losing weight is: eat less, drink more plain water and enjoy more physical activity. So, better throw it away.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
