I can't find anything online that shows the ingredients which always worries me with diet products. Do you happen to have access to the pills to see what the ingredients are?

I see a lot of stimulants but nothing proven for weight loss. Green tea has a slight effect on weight loss, but they don't say how much green tea is in it. 40% of what? Also the study showing the slight effect said you should drink real tea because the same effect was not found in green tea extracts. Plus the loss was about 8 pounds over the course of a whole year.

This company has come under question here in the past. It's the type of company that focuses on sales first. Personally I would avoid it.

Be careful with Niacin, I had a horrible experience with it

You could probably just take vitamin b and get the same results to be honest.

Waste of money... take a B complex if you need an energy boost .

I love Arbonne, but there only there skin care line & makeup. I have tried their weight loss stuff in the past (with many others) and nothing changes. I started Weight Watchers and have lost the most with it.
