Has anyone heard of this being used instead of Metformin for treating PCOS? Has anyone used it?

I was on Metformin on and off 4 times and kept having the same severe symptoms, dizziness and major GI effects. I received an email that talked about this as a replacement for Metformin with the same results along with other benefits. Wondering if this maybe a solution for me? I can not take brith control or anything with hormones in it due to multiple PE's after using the Nuva Ring about three years ago...and Metformin is now not an option either.
