Not really known: That sounds like an advertised product with claims of helping muscles, athletics, or overall health. One should ask her doctor if the product is a real medication, approved by the fda for treating anything. If the product is not a real medicine that has undergone years of testing and research then one cannot tell for sure if it works or not, and one also cannot know what its side effects might be.
