This product is really helping me with recovering from a severe systemic yeast infection. After taking 1mg of Estradiol for a nearly 2 years following surgical menopause, some internet research revealed to me that pill causes yeast infection in 100% of women over 40 that use it for estrogen replacement. Candex really has come to my rescue. It has helped me with that all-over, deep itch that makes me want to scream and scratch my skin off and the patches on my legs have faded considerably. It should also be noted that I've eliminated yeast products (and any foods that feed yeast; too many carbs, sugar etc.) from my meals. As the yeast in my system died (I could tell because my legs were getting better as was that internal, unscrtachable itch everywhere at night), I noticed my cravings for carbs and/or simple sugars skyrocketed, I'm sure a ploy to feed the yeast so it can rise up and grow out of control again! That being the case I would advise you to pay attention to what you put back into your body as you kill the yeast. The feeling of wanting carbs can be so strong you may even consider using an appetite suppressant until you are free and clear of systemic yeast. Really, good product and I'm so glad I found it. Other yeast products I used paled by comparison. I will be purchasing again and again until I am fully recovered.

What a nice surprise! I dump two out of their capsules at night and take them right before bed. I notice that I feel relaxed through the night. The next day I am more calm as well. This may have been an off-target hope, but I was hoping it would help with weight loss. Maybe they will over time since better quality sleep is an essential step in the right direction to weight loss and overall health.
I had never heard of this product until a segment on a well-known television program. I have been taking it since May and I know my heart is stronger because of the difference in my circulation. My hands, calves and feet used to be cold and kind of gaunt looking. Now they look healthy and pink again like when I was younger! My husband was first to notice! I will be buying this product for as long as I need it! Of that I am sure!
Helped with Night Sweats
Posted by Carolanne on Oct 01, 2012
I take 2 capsules before bed with a warm cup of water. I figure I can make tea out of them in my stomach and bypass staining my teeth. They ease my night sweats. I went off of them for a very long time and came back to them. Like many herbs, I think they body gets used to them over time, so I stop for a few days ever so often, then begin again.

Taking one, twice per day, I could not really tell if these were giving me a mental lift of any kind. To get Satiereal, I prefer Hunger Chews. See my review. I probably will not purchase this brand again.

I've been using this about twice a day along with other internally ingested essential oils to help treat a severe run of eczema that came from out of nowhere and is threatening to consume my legs and arms. Sometimes I forget and only take one of each oil (fish oil, evening primrose oil, vitamin e oil, flax seed oil and garlic oil). I've also stopped eating processed sugar and can say the itching, burning and purplish-brown color has lightened considerably, though I'm not sure which thing should get credit, I'm sure all things helped colaboratively. I can also say I was taking other things, but the itching, burning and discoloration didn't subside until I added the evening primrose oil. I've been using this combination of oils for about 10 days.

Bitter orange is great and inexpensive compared to other products I've tried for fat buring. My problem is I don't need an appetite suppressant. I only need a fat burner, but had not been able to find one that didn't contain some kind of appetite suppressant. This product caused me no side affects. I had no jitters or rapid heartbeat and I am very sensative to most medicine and herbal products, usually ending up at the negative end of the 'side effects' spectrum. Anyway, I could hardly believe how fast my product arrived! I also loved that the price was low and the shipping and handling charge wasn't hiked up! THAT I GREATLY appreciated! I will continue to order from this company. They are the most cost effective herbal company I've found in 9 years of internet shopping! Thanks for making your service affordable! I'll let you know how the weight loss goes at a later date.
I am taking this along with Berber vcaps by Thorne Research group and there is a definite difference in my immune system since following an eating and immune repair program I saw on a medical show's segment a few months ago. I have tried many programs without success, but this one is working for me. I'm down to a size 12 from a 14-16. It will become a staple in my cabinet! Also, I noticed my thyroid gland is no longer enlarged after a month of following the program! Thank goodness because I was tired of my hair falling out and sudden muscle weakness. It's good to feel well!
Good and relaxing!
I saw this product on a medical show's segment and decided to try it for pain during the night. Without even a full dose I felt relaxed and pain free. But I am sure that dosage and results will vary from person to person. This is something I will keep in my medicine cabinet and my first aid kit. Far safer than Aspirin! Update: A few days ago I took the full dose at night and still had no hangover effect, rather awoke feeling fresh and energetic. I'm glad to have found this product and glad my local health food store carries it for emergency purchases.
It's not the best estrogen supplement I have ever had, but it is good. There is another I like better, but this one is cheaper. I combine this with progesterone cream. I now get 'warm' rather than 'hot', and not very often. I gave it three stars because it is not as potent as the other brand I like. However, because the brand of progesterone I use also contains phytoestrogens, this one does the job nicely.
Restored Flexibility in Dry Hair
Posted by Carolanne on Feb 04, 2013
I really liked this conditioner from the first application! I've had a lot of trouble with dry hair due to hormonal changes and medications. (Note: I am now off all pharmaceutical hormone replacements.) This conditioner gave me instant moisture and elasticity, especially when applied to each section just before flat ironing. A little goes a long way. I am so glad I found the Giovanni line and that the products are all natural because I've been slowly moving away from chemicals both internally and externally. This is a good addition to my natural health regime.
I am so glad I have added this to my regimen. I have been using it after dinner since the end of May and have been very regular as a result. I take 1-2 capsules per day with 16oz. of water. I would not take it at bedtime because I would not be able to drink enough water, since I limit my water at night to prevent waking up every few hours to go to the bathroom. I also notice I rest better at night since adding it to my evening routine.
