Product causes bowel flush
Posted by Reviewer1056250 on Aug 11, 2014
For me, living in this body, use of this product at the rate of 2 caps/day over a period of 4-6 weeks inevitably leads to a bowel flush. Very unpleasant. It appears that the formulation has too much magnesium oxide, at least for the requirements of my body. By switching to another product which uses chelated magnesium, I am able to take a sufficiently large enough dose to meet the body's need for magnesium. I do not understand why magnesium oxide is so popular among supplement makers. Most likely it is relatively inexpensive to manufacture. According to Wikipedia magnesium oxide is used to make wallboard and refractory material for furnaces, among other things. I do suspect that as ingredients go magnesium oxide is quite inexpensive which should count for its popularity as a dietary supplement when magnesium is called for. Look around at the various magnesium supplements: many are formulated with magnesium oxide.
Good digestive aid

Helps me a lot. Before you try it be sure yours is a low stomach acid (HCL) situation. And beware--I have been told that the symptoms of low stomach acid and excess stomach acid are much the same. Do the research.
The dog seems to like it----

4 caps per day cut my wife/s blood lipids from the red zone to normal. Cant beat that.

I called the manufacturer and was informed that this product, Vibrant Health, is gluten free. Ed in Alabama 1/27/09
Good for irritable bowel
Thanks to FOS and other nutrients the IBS is gone. Colonic bacteria love to munch on FOS.
Ussd with caution, may eliminating a certain kind of indigestion in the elderly. I am told that stomach acid (HCL) tends to decrease with age. If I miss my Hcl with the evening meal, I can count on bloat and great difficulty sleeping. Before using, be sure you are aware of symptoms of too much HCL and how to relieve them. Remember that HCL stands for hydrochloric acid. Keeping the capsule in the mouth until it ruptures can be very uncomfortable. So use with care.
Helpful in dealing with migraine
For 10 yrs, most days, Mr Migraine visits daily. This product helps to deal with the situation, not all the time. I have to get to it early, early on for it to have any effect.
Multi-use: Borage Oil = high percentage GLA
Great applied externally for certain skin conditions and for regular use internally to supplement levels of GLA (Gamma-Linolenic acid). Find a good reference book and read up on GLA. You will be amazed.
Excellent bulking agent
