Wondering if any physicians have thoughts on how safe teas like Teami/Flat Tummy Teas/FitTea are? I have seen some case reports of garcinia cambogia causing acute hepatitis (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6083529/) but am wondering if anyone else has any thoughts/experience.
FYI: The brands mentioned are HEAVILY marketed on social media and are endorsed by many A-list celebrities. While garcinia cambogia used for weight loss is not new, the huge push in marketing is a fairly recent event.
