Taste: ok, not great - May need to be refrigerated or finished quickly after opening

Posted on Apr 26, 2014

5 people found the following review helpful

First time I've purchased this: I don't care much about the taste. It is ok, mind you, and healthier than the alternatives, hence my purchase. PROBLEM: Some white ball-shaped items have formed on top (as if it were mould, not sure what it is) and I am unsure if I should bin the item.

Natrol won't reply to my query

Posted on Mar 09, 2014

5 people found the following review helpful

I have written to Natrol twice asking whether this product contains GMO (for instance, the vitamin C part). No reply yet. I am suspicious of companies that do not take the time to reply to customer queries.

Too sweet, contain fructose

Posted on May 09, 2012

Didn't realise these contained fructose. Fructose makes us fat (and increases risk of diabetes). I won't buy them again.

Love it... for energy

Posted on Jun 24, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

I have been taking this for energy (just two in the morning) and it makes a huge difference for me. It may raise blood pressure, but that's ok for me, as I tend to have low blood pressure. Unhappy that price has gone up. Vitacost currently sells this for $4.99. Why are iherb prices less competitive these days?

Probably really good but chia seeds also very effective...

Posted on Jul 08, 2011

3 people found the following review helpful

I don't suffer from constipation but I have been having strange bowel movements and digestive complaints since picking up a stomach infection while on holiday. I found a couple of free samples of this lying around the house and decided to give them a try. Taking just one capsule at night, away from food, (and eating plenty of fruit and vegetables, including chia seeds, plus drinking lots of water) gives me an ideal stool movement next day: easily passed, soft stool, well-formed, right size (read the book by Paul Chek to know more) without any pain at any time, no grumbling tummy (usually a problem for me) or any side effect. If you are sensitive, try taking just one a day, at night and try this rather than one of the others (harsher-sounding) colon conditioners. iHerb great as usual. NOTE: I have been also taking chia seeds and it could be that it is the chia seeds that are having this great regulatory effect instead! In any case, this product did not hurt and seems to have helped.

Probably great pre-workout but not at bedtime...

Posted on Mar 13, 2010

3 people found the following review helpful

I was taking this to stimulate my GH and to cope with a period of intense stress and physical activity, so was taking at night. PLUSES: It definitely helped me go through weeks of hard work without a day off. It managed to do this with just two teaspoons a night. (though I was also using L-Theanine and 5-HTP) MINUSES: - I find the product far too sweet!!! - I would be starving in the morning and think I have put on some mass (also fat). Mass increase was not one of my goals (I am a girl with good body fat % and enviable body mass as it is). Now I will try taking it pre-workout instead (e.g. before my spinning class) so that the sugars in the product can be put to some good use! Would probably buy again but can we PLEASE have a version without sugar to take at night.

Great Product but buy it elsewhere

Posted on Nov 14, 2015

3 people found the following review helpful

Great product, have been using it for a few years. Unfortunately, at the moment (Nov 2015), iherb does NOT offer a great price on it. It is currently $20.88 on iherb and $7 cheaper on another website... I recommend buying it elsewhere until iherb lowers its price.

Great low dosage but cannot use it

Posted on Oct 11, 2014

3 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.

Could be better

I like the idea of coenzymate B complex but this seems to contain folic acid, not a good folate form.

OK as a moisturiser, not for internal use (for me)

Posted on Dec 03, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Been using as a moisturiser and it's ok (if you can stand the smell). However, taking it internally, it did nothing for me. It did not stop heartburn, in fact it probably made it worse, due to the citric acid. I am now suffering badly with fire-like burning in my stomach... been lasting for days now. I would like a version without citric acid!!! I think that would have more potential. Generally like this brand and the fact they use minimal additives.
