Unfortunately, there are thousands of health-related products and services out there that turn out to be scams because they falsely claim to reverse, cure or dramatically improve your health by simply taking a pill, drinking a liquid, reading a book, etc.
I'm sure that you already know this, but, make sure that you always do your own research and investigation, before you purchase any health-related product that makes a lot of unfounded promises.
Doing something as simple as calling their toll-free number and asking a few questions will give you some insight into the product and whoever is selling their so-called "great" product.

How to Spot a Scam
The product promises the world. Avoid any product that claims it can do it all — cure your disease, lose weight without exercising, rebuild/regenerate your organ/cells, get rid of belly fat, increase your energy, solve world hunger. OK, the last one is a stretch. :-) But, you get my point, right?
A product that claims to be a “scientific breakthrough". If there were a scientific breakthrough, it would have been on every news channel and all over the Internet.
Lack of transparency. The website doesn't explain its solution to your diabetes. It talks about everything else, but, you have to buy their product to get the solution. And, when you do, the product doesn't do what it was promised to do.
Another form of the lack of transparency is the website doesn't mention the author's name -- you have no idea who's really behind the book or other product. In other cases, the author is a self-proclaimed expert or celebrity doctor, who has had no experience with diabetes, except their own reading and research.
Eat whatever you want. It's amazing how many sites promise this! But, sadly, this type of claim does attract a lot of customers!
