Yes: It's just a spice but in a capsule. It is thought that it maintains the blood sugar levels stable and it avoids the craving for sugary products. Not harmful but watch out! supplements are not strongly regulated by the fda and they can have substances not disclosed in package.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
