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?

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.

Is worthwhile to invest in meat thermometer during pregnancy. ...Read more
