1 doctor agrees

In brief: Talk w/ your doctor

If properly designed clinical trials have not evaluated it, and/or if the only data is what's listed on the bottle, a website, or a book, then probably not.
Many supplements are advertised as helpful (ginko biloba for example), but well designed trials did not find any benefit. Also, "natural" treatments can still have side effects. It's best to discuss any products with me at an office visit.
