In brief: See below

It can aid in weight loss due to fluid loss, however, if fluids are not also taken it can cause kidney damage.
Understand that any weight lost from taking orthosiphon is water weight, so this is not a permanent weight loss solution. I would not recommend..See your md for help in your weigh loss goals.
