Internet pharmacist recommends this

Suzy Cohen a pharmacist says this will reduce risk of glaucoma. I'm over 50 so I take this for that reason. This also causes a nice warm sun tan glow to the skin which I like. I've been taking 4mg per day and decided to try 12mg. I have left leg and left hip pain probably due to full time bus driving. No improvement yet but maybe it takes awhile to build up in my body. Will let you know if there's improvement in the joints.

It smells fresh and fruity so I'm sure it's a good product for blood sugar control and prevention of diabetes. I have diabetes in my family line. My fasting blood sugar is 90...not optimal which should be 70-84 according to Life Extension Foundation ( lef.org ). My diet is reduced carbs,mini meals,mostly protein,veggies,healthy fats and some fruit. I'm sure this supplement will help plus I need to exercise more. My BMI is low normal so thats in my favor. I wish you could carry bulk gymnema so I could put it in empty capsules and save more money. Something to consider. Thanks for carrying this product.

Very calming after a stressful day at work and it helps me relax so sleep is a breeze. I love the bulk powder because it saves me $ versus pills. Always carry it please.

One of his prescriptions causes occasional diarrhea. This gets rid of it quickly. Then he has a electrolyte drink to replenish what was lost. Once I had a very bad nausea and vomiting from a prescription med...I wish I had know back then about how good charcoal is for relief. We'll always buy this product.

Eating can be a challenge when faced with bloating,burping and gas. It seems worse as I got older. This helps alot. I take this along with betaine hcl pills and meals are now more enjoyable.

I add this to protein shakes for natural vitamin C. It's mildly tart,slightly sweet and thickens the shake. I like it and will buy again.

I use this for stress relief along with gaba. It works.

I'm taking this on faith as I've read that it helps increase blood flow to the brain. As we age less blood reaches the brain which can cause many problems. On the bottle it says to basically be careful if you have low blood pressure. My blood pressure is on the low side so I only take one per day. I break the pill in half and take 1/2 am and 1/2 pm. So far so good.

This stuff works! My husband's blood pressure was 152/82 and in 20 minutes it dropped to 127/75 using about 1 teasoon arginine. He mixes it in V8 juice to mask the taste. Please always carry this product.

Less expensive than Biosil. Will know later if it works for this 55+ lady. Have typical aging skin,hair issues. Regarding the sticky drops issue that folks are reporting...this is my tip. Dispense drops until it starts to stick...put finger over opening and shake bottle several times then try again. It works! You'll get all 10 drops without a messy stream and waste. I bought this at a health food store and will plan to buy this at iherb next time.

I'm 56 drive full time and need this for the constant use of my eyes when I drive. It seems to help with light glare,focus and reduce eye fatigue.

It seems to make my eyes greener...a plus. I drive full time and notice night vision is improved. Also I need weaker reading glasses than before this supplement. This is my lifetime eye protection.
