In brief: A tincture of Tino
Unfortunately in this country there isn't enough research to support such use.
This botanical has anti-inflammatory properties and is used for diabetes management overseas but its effects and method of action are not well understood. Without sound evidence to support its use here, you're better off losing weight if obese, eating healthier foods and exercising. Exercise is always good medicine.
