I hope there are more studies on this superfood. I am concerned that many medications are not nice to the liver and kidneys and block good things so they can block bad things. Statins and other drugs are Testosterone blockers because T comes from cholesterol. I am also concerned about calcium and coQ10 being blocked. Science needs to look at ways to nourish the body not deplete it. Why not welcome more studies of herbs?
