December 21, 2019 Category :Diabetes Facts 0

Question: “Is virgin coconut oil good for diabetics? Is it true that it can also prevent diabetes?”

The substance’s effects, safety, tolerability and toxicity are compared to “placebo” (ordinary coated sugar pill) as well as to medicines that are already approved for use against diabetes. So far, ampalaya supplements available in the market have not been studied extensively to demonstrate their efficacy and safety.
