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.

She might experience transient gastrointestinal distress after eating something so unfamiliar to her but toxicity isn't expected. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
