Does not seem as good as other digestive enzymes. Will not purchase again
Posted by emanuela on Jul 07, 2016
I purchased this when it was on offer (20% off). I find when I use this instead of my usual digestive enzymes, I am more likely to get digestive issues. So I won't repurchase. Sorry Michael's, I like your products generally... I guess this one lacks some enzyme I need.
Not sure... expensive on iherb

Not sure if this works for weight loss - I have hope for lipid management, though I will no longer buy from iherb, as their prices are too high for some products (such as this). Cheaper to buy from Europe
OK, don't like the stearic acid...

I wish American health removed the stearic acid from these...
Could be better

I like the idea of coenzymate B complex but this seems to contain folic acid, not a good folate form.
Contains sodium selenite
Posted by emanuela on Apr 02, 2016
I like the dosage and the fact it contains vitamin E but... it also contains the form of selenium called "sodium selenite". Dr Mercola writes "According to the 1986 edition of the Handbook of the Toxicology of Metals, daily intake of about one milligram of selenium as selenite can be toxic. In one study, sodium selenite was found to induce substantial DNA damage in human fibroblasts." (google Mercola sodium selenite to read the whole article). I am not sure if Life Extension is aware of this, or if they think 50mcg is low enough not to pose a risk or if they believe the two other forms will "make up" for the selenite somehow, but I am no longer buying this item. Why risk adding the selenite form at all? I will enquire further but using a different form at the moment.
Think it is helping me

I think it is helping me in so many ways, so I am pleased with it. However, no way is this 228 doses?!?! It ran out quicker than expected (considering the 228 doses indicated in the product information), hence "only" 4 stars.

I have been taking for my teeth and bones and, after just a week or so of use at the recommended dose, I noticed my last wisdom tooth has just come up! (I am nearly 51) Frankly, I could have done without having to deal with an impacted wisdom tooth (currently damaging the opposing tooth), hence my 4 star review. Generally, Christopher's Original Formula products are all 5 stars!
Some dodgy ingredients
Posted by emanuela on Feb 24, 2016
Great that it contains sunflower (not soy) lecithin. But, it also contains "modified food starch" and "carrageenan" I am sensitive to the latter so I could not use this product and I had to give it to friends. They also could not take it, so it ended up in the bin. California Gold Nutrition, remove the carraggeenan please?
Good Product, but expensive on iherb

Having to buy elsewhere after recent iherb price hike. Sorry iherb!
This is my favourite B complex - why discontinued?!?!?

when a product is too good, it gets discontinued. Bring back my favourite vitamin B complex please!!!
Good product, but expensive on iherb
Posted by emanuela on Feb 07, 2016
This is a good product I have been taking for 2 years or so. Wish it had no eccipients and that the capsules were vcaps. However, recently I have had to change suppliers because iherb has become more expensive than alternative suppliers. Now buying elsewhere.
Has helped with indigestion, digestive congestion/discomfort, irritability
Posted by emanuela on Jan 09, 2016
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) Changed my rating to 4 starts, because iherb's price for this product is now higher than some of its competitors' :-(
