Plant extract: Obtained from the root of this plant, it is claimed to have positive side effects such as protection of blood during radiotherapy for cancer, decreasing blood sugar in diabetics, protection against inflammation, and increasing libido. If you decide to take it, please do not stop taking any medicines you are currently on and discuss with your doctor.
