Experts warn: Do not take health care products as medicine. The director of the Department of Orthopaedics at Longgang Central Hospital pointed out that any health care products can not replace medicines and become the “main force” for treating diseases.

Therefore, if the consumer gets sick, he should take the medicine under the guidance of the doctor. Do not take the health care product as a medicine. It has delayed the treatment time and can make the condition worse.
