(Glucomanna (Amorphophallus konjac), Xanthan gum)
(Green tea leaf extract(Standardized for 95% polyphenols [70% catechins (45% epigallocatechins gallate - 300mg EGCG)], Caffeine (as caffeine anhydrous), Guarana extract (seed), Yerba Mate (llex paraguariensis) (leaf) (Standardized for 200mg of caffeine), Alhpa lipoic acid)

Caffeine can cause constipation in some people. with the 300mg in Diettech, and any other caffeine beverages she may consume, that might be the culprit.

Maybe that's the vehicle in which it squelches your appetite.

I'm guessing with all of these "TECH'S" in the name and ingredients that this is a Muscle"TECH" supplement. Maybe that's her problem. But really...just have her discontinue and see what happens.
