Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Strong body odor can be embarrassing and a cause of frustration when it persists despite good hygiene.

I could not find any evidence that use of Garcenia Cambogia and Biotin would cause this problem.

The change in hormone levels associated with post-menopause could be the culprit. It appears that many women develop masculine sweat odor during menopause.
