iHerb Customer Reviews
I found out about this herb through the recommendation of Andreas Moritz, an Ayurvedic practioner. He recommends using it in some of his books. Read "The Amazing Liver Cleanse", and use this herb along with eating plenty of apples. I couldn't believe how many liver and gallstones were evacuated using this herb! And the size of some of them were about twice the size of golf balls! Doing the cleanse got rid of my hayfever that I had suffered from for 10 years; alleviated my lactose intolerance; virtually eradicated of the residual effects of a serious knee injury(i've been able to do my regular serious running routine again - I'm a 2:30 marathoner); improved mental focus and energy; reduced my basal stress level; helped me maintain lean muscle mass and kept the fat off(the liver regulates hormone levels); and kept my GI tract feeling very comfortable. can't recommend it highly enough.
I gave to a friend and in a week he has passed several stones he is very happy with the results.i drink it for my fatty liver for a week now and slowly i see some improvement.i 'll reordered and i 'll recomend it to my friends.
