Does it affect the sexual organs?
Hormonal system?

anti-inflammatory?

anti-inflammatory? none of the above, it's rather "pro" something than "anti" something

So let me see if I can summarise this -
There's a couple, one of whom is not getting enough to eat, that wants to try some herbal drug? But they fail to take the drug?

Relevant who's not getting enough to eat? Who is it?

progesterone :-)

but which bodily system does it effect - I though I covered most - did I miss some?

Does it affect the mood or emotions?
Or something physical?

Is it a nutritional supplement of some sort?

So let me see if I can summarise this -
There's a couple,yes one of whom is not getting enough to eat exactly so, that wants to try some herbal drug? I would say yes had it not been for the FA But they fail to take the drug? same answer as previous

Relevant who's not getting enough to eat? yes Who is it? the girl, of course

progesterone :-) and Prozac But neither is the drug we are looking for.

but which bodily system does it effect - I though I covered most - did I miss some? I do not think so - it would probably affect the cardiovascular system, the pulmonary system and possibly muscles as well

Does it affect the mood or emotions? I do not think so
Or something physical? yes - see above

Is it a nutritional supplement of some sort?
yope, I think it could be but I am not completely sure

To revive my puzzle and save it from the lateral limbo, I am going to do a

RECAP

There is a couple. The girl is deliberately eating much less than usual (Arjun, perhaps I gave you a misleading answer to your question of "not getting enough to eat", so I think I should consider this to be a BLOOPER ALERT.) We have not yet established who of them refused to take a herbal drug (a secret mixture of herbs) the exact components of which are not important. The desired effect of the drug would probably have affected the heart, the lungs, and the muscles.

Is the drug supposed to make her stronger?
Act as a tonic to boost her health?

Do we need to know the girl's reason for eating her less?

Is the drug supposed to make her stronger? Were it not for the FA, I would be happy to answer YES.
Act as a tonic to boost her health? no
Do we need to know the girl's reason for eating her less? definitely, yes

I see, I suppose it was the man who refused to take the herbal drug?

Reason for eating less:
Is it determined by her or against her will?

A physical reason eg intestinal blockage / constipation / nausea?

A psychological reason such as a desire to lose weight / look slimmer / manipulation of others /protest / emotional black mail?

Reason for eating less:
Is it determined by her this one or against her will?

A physical reason eg intestinal blockage / constipation / nausea? no to all

A psychological reason yes such as a desire to lose weight yes but there is more to it/ look slimmer / manipulation of others /protest / emotional black mail? no to the rest

She wanted to lose weight for a particular reason?

or

She wanted to lose weight and there was also another reason for eating less?

What is meant by "they failed"?
The drugs failed?
The two people failed?
