I'm breastfeeding woman and i'm very slim i want to take planet Ayurveda gain weight pills tablets for women & men fast!- and they said 100% safe?

Not worth the risk: The tablets help the company get richer, not help you gain healthy weight faster. Also, these types of supplements are not regulated whatsoever. If you are still breast feeding, i would say it is not worth the risk of harming your child for something that is basically snake oil. If you really want to try it, wait until you are done breastfeeding. ...Read more
