Please don't be alarmed. Toxicology studies resulted in no toxicity or deaths in animals at dosages of hydroxycitric acid (Garcinia cambogia) at 5,000 mg/kg, equivalent to 350 g or 233 times the maximum dosage of 1.5 g/day of hydroxycitric acid.Tucker might experience a bit of gastrointestinal distress after eating something so unfamiliar to him but toxicity isn't expected. There's no need to induce emesis.Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
