Gives me indigestion, nausea and slight headache for 1/2 day at a time...

Posted on Mar 19, 2015

I took one last night and had initially severe thirst, then nausea, indigestion and a bit of a headache until this afternoon. Just taken my second dose this evening and, again, thirst, headache, nausea and indigestion! (in spite of taking digestive enzymes, probiotics, liver and gallblader herbs, drinking lots away from meals etc). It would probably have a nice effect on my body if it were absorbed properly but something in this product is definitely not working for me. Back to Co-Q10 for me. 1 start for being non-GMO.

Now I like the taste, thickens nicely

Posted on Mar 18, 2015

The first time I had it, it gave me a headache. I also didn't like the taste. However, now: I only have one scoop a day for a gentle cleansing action and I have grown to like its taste. Not sure it is helping my body get rid of toxins. Would try it again but now too expensive (above UK Customs threshold) and iherb no longer offering VIP discount, so this product is currently not an option for me.

Purchased in error - contains SUCRALOSE!!!

Posted on Jan 03, 2015

I thought these were healthy gelatin bars and I wanted to up my intake of gelatin for its health benefits. Expensive for just powder pouches. One star because they also contain SUCRALOSE (bad for you) as well as too much sugar (also bad for you). This information was not given in the main product description. Unhappy.

Extreme stomach pain (like ulcer)

Posted on Nov 02, 2014

I admit I have a bit of a weak stomach (though my digestive issues seemed to have been solved 2 years ago). In any case, I thought it'd be prudent to start by taking just ONE of these WITH a meal (not two away from meals as instructed). At the end of the first day, I had very bad stomach pains, as if a blade was stuck into my stomach, sharp and burning. I will NEVER buy this again, I do NOT recommend you even try these unless you have a very strong digestive system. Be ready to throw the whole pot into the bin as I have had to do. I had high expectations of this item. Very disappointed.

Great low dosage but cannot use it

Posted on Oct 11, 2014

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased because I was looking for a low dosage of Betain HCI plus someone mentioned "easy to swallow". Really? I just looked at the rough edges of the not-that-small tablet and though "there is no way I can swallow this stuff". I am scared of choking on it. So I have to make a really gritty protein powder mixture to swallow it. I would have preferred a capsule and a solution that does not have stearic acid in it.

Horrible, large tablets with sharp edges

Posted on Sep 24, 2014

Could not swallow these horrible tablets with sharp edges. Had to chew them (horrible taste and far too many unnecessary eccipients). Why are the tablets so large? Remove the eccipients! Why sharp edges? Would not purchase again.

Has helped with indigestion, digestive congestion/discomfort, irritability

Posted on Sep 12, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

Really happy with this product, wish I had found it earlier and that it lasted longer. I take 2 with meals, 3x day as prescribed. It has helped remarkably reduce or eliminate indigestion, slow/sluggish digestion, irritability and constant digestive discomfort (I was already taking Betaine HCI and enzymes but was still feeling sluggish until I started taking this)

Does what a soap is supposed to... clean

Posted on Sep 08, 2014

I use it mostly for hands, armpit and feet washing (especially toes and toenails) It is quite concentrated (see directions for use as a household cleaner and/or for laundry), so I always dilute it with some water. This means it lasts me ages. No problems whatsoever. But I would not use it as a body wash, particularly if undiluted. To those who complain about the smell, WHAT SMELL? If you want a sweet smelling body wash with unhealthy ingredients, go elsewhere. I buy this because of the natural ingredients and its cleansing properties.

Good nutrition but too sweet (and too many carbs) for me

Posted on Jun 13, 2014

Good nutrition/ingredients and non-GMO also chocolatey enough BUT - too sweet for me - too sweet taste - too many carbs (I feel it affects my blood sugar levels) - expensive

I wish they removed xylitol and magnesium stearate

Posted on May 31, 2014

Complaints: - contains xylitol - contains magnesium stearate - contains a high amount of vitamin K2 for me (I would prefer less, 45mg) My favourite was the 1,000 IU version, now discontinued. GOOD STUFF: However, now that I HAVE to take 5000 IU, I can take one 3 days a week. I do know they effectively raise my vitamin D levels, as they were in the optimal range when my doctor tested me last time (in spring). She was taken aback as she had never seen anyone with optimal vitamin D levels in her life!

Probably good for me but disgusting taste and hard to swallow tablet

Posted on Apr 28, 2014

I don't like tablets but this product came highly recommended, so I thought I'd try it anyway. * Good points: gentle on the stomach, no repeating/hurting stomach * Bad points: a)tablet - hard to swallow for some b) taste - It tastes rank if (like me) you have to chew it because you cannot swallow it whole. * Will try taking with a smoothie and will update this review later on with results.
