Гарциния Камбоджа

Very Low Risk for breastfeeding


Safe. Compatible.
Not risky for breastfeeding or infant.

The fruit of this tropical tree is used. It contains hydroxycitric lactones acid and anthocyanins.
Unproven properties are: satiating, slimming.

At latest update no published data on excretion into breast milk were found.

Scientific evidence has clearly shown a lack of effectiveness as lipid-lowering or slimming agent and a potential toxicity whenever abused.

A low-calorie diet along with moderate exercise is preferable. Many women who breastfeed their infants regain the weight they had prior to pregnancy sooner than those who do not.
