I'm 12 years old, 5'3 and I weigh 191 (I'm telling the truth) The reason why I'm here is because I have a question that I don't think other kids my age could answer. They have this 'Natrual Herbal Slimming Tea' and my mom got me 2 boxes of it but I don't really know what the ingredients are. If you could tell me what: senna leaves, malva leaves, licorice root and panax ginseng root are I'd appreciate it a lot!!! THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Senna leaf is a laxative. Malva leaves aid digestion. Licorice root is also for stomach ailments. Ginseng makes a lot of claims. It is primarily a stimulant. Be careful about herbal treatments. They can't replace good diet and exercise; they are often a hoax; they are not regulated as drugs are.
