I'm not sure but Dr. Harish Verma who saved about 5000 colons with ayurvedic therapy said it's good to have it in your diet.
I also took his ayurvedic medicine and it put me through remission a year ago but it's expensive for me so I stopped ordering it.
Plus, no side effects. Even the doctors from Robert Wood Johnson in NJ recommended his medicine because it saved so many colons(people were about to get their colons removed until they tried this)
