Brief Answer:
Safe to use

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking


I read your question and I can understand your concern. It's a breakdown product of glucose and used as supplements as well for weight loss, obesity, cholesterol imbalance, skin wrinkles topical use etc.

Use for a month or two is fine however prolonged use safety is not documented yet. Small doses are advised.

Larger doses may lead to gastric discomfort like tummy aches, nausea vomiting and IBS symptoms etc. Overall it's safe and can be used.

I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and best wishes.

Regards
Dr. Khan
