Cheap but a failure
When active acidophilus products are added to warm milk and left in a warm place overnight, the milk should be slightly thick in the morning (a good test for whether your acidophilus product is active). This product is a complete fail. Wish I had done the test before I got half-way through the bottle!
I take this during exam time, and introduced my dad to it when he developed panic attacks. Can't fault it! Amazing!
Good degreaser for skin
My husband comes home from work covered in oil, dust, and other grime (he works on the roads, a horrible job). I bought this to use as 'soap' because nothing was getting him clean and drying his skin was only blackening my towels. Works well, very economical. I'm going to try this stuff as dishwashing liquid too - it is nice to buy a one-product-does-it-all type of product.
Cheap but capsules are huge

Cheapest way to get the doses of cinnamon and chromium required to treat hypertension, but the capsules are absolutely HUGE! BEWARE if you have troubles swallowing tablets...
Bought to treat enterococcal infection - didn't work.
Cucumin has been studied as an antibiotic and shown to kill enterococcus. Bought this to treat enterococcal infection - didn't work. Possibly had some effect on my SLE joint inflammation, but wopuldn't buy again.
Works surprisingly well
Just like other reviewers, I've tried other brands and this is the best so far. Also very economical, even given the high postage costs of shipping to New Zealand.
Gods gift too women!
With 1 capsule a day it regulates my cycle and reduces the bleeding to 1/3rd, even in the first month of taking it. Amazing!
Wonderful maple flavour without the calories!
Great pain reliever for nerve pain
My teen daughter has nerve pain from her back but no known reason for it. One small dose of this lets her sleep at night, even though she didn't expect it to do anything. I highly recommend this very potent herb as a regular part of herbal medical practice.
Good strength extract but didn't treat my UTI.
Good strength extract but didn't treat my urinary tract infection, even at 10mls/day for the first 3 days (NZ herbalist recommended dose).
So I got sucked in...
I bought this to treat a multi-drug resistant pelvic infection. It made no difference, even at 2 capsules a day. So I did some research and found that while allicin is an antibiotic, it has never been proven to reach anything near detected levels in the blood (probably because active components are metabolised too quickly). I only 'in vivo' potential uses for allicin are topical ones eg skin and mucous membranes. So, when I developed a sore throat, I went straight to this product and gargled one capsule in a cup of warm water. My sore throat disappeared! So it looks like it does have some applications.
Awful taste, did not help my infection.
Tasted soooo bad I had to put it in capsules. Bought for a enterococcus infection (pelvic and UTI) that is very resistant to antibiotics, still made no difference.
