    We are not doctors here. The assigned health experts rarely reply to posts due to their busy schedules.

    You need to ask your doctor if this supplement would be safe for you.

    I would discuss this with my doctor. But I suspect that like a lot of other supplements out there, if they worked that well, the medical establishment would be onboard already.

    You should buy the supplement if you want to lower your economic status. It's probably best for using your hard earned money.
