    Comment:
    "Might have a laxative effect" is an understatement. I have a weird obsession with tamarind and love eating it straight up. Sometimes I tend to go overboard and will have 1/4 of a block( you can buy them in block forms from Indian grocery stores) and I will end up spend half the day on the toilet peeing WATER. It is THAT strong of a laxative.

    THE GARCINIA CAMBOGIA PILLS THAT CONTAIN THE FRUIT TAMARIND HAVE WORKED TO LOOSE WEIGHT. IN JUST ONE WEEK I HAVE LOST 2KG. I HAVENT BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT WITH EXERCISE AND EATING. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE IS THAT THE LAXITIVE EFFECT HAS LEFT ME FEELING UNCOMFORTABLE. I HAVE HAD CONTINOUS TUMMY ACHES AND NEED ACCESS TO A BATHROOM CONSTANTLY. A FEW HEADACHES AND JUST GENERALLY NAUSEA AND FEELING SICK.
