Is carvivora safe? Does it really work like on Ronald Reagan or scam?

Is carvivora safe? Does it really work like on Ronald Reagan or scam?

Safe, no scam but...: Carivora is a pure extract of the Venus Fly Trap plant.
It's very safe/non-toxic. There's little research on this product but it has at least 17 phytochemicals that have proven benefits individually. It's marketed as antimicorbial, anti-inflammatory and an immune modulator. Some evidence supports this. While Ronald Reagan did use it to treat colon cancer that is NOT proof it helped him!
