My Reviews

Great!

Posted by Reviewer1559362 on Nov 28, 2009

The best malic acid I have tried. I can take 4 tablets and get over 3gms of malic acid without getting too much magnesium at once (such that my body sends it straight through me) but just enough to stay in my body and be effective. Seems to ease fibromyalgia pain. Yay! And doesn't taste yuck like some expensive speciality brands that go straight through you at the same dose.

Always been happy with Thorne 5HTP

Posted by Reviewer1559362 on Nov 22, 2009

As I have always been happy with Thorne Research's 5HTP , I made other purchases all from the Thorne brand recently but was disappointed by most of them except the 5HTP which I will keep buying and will not try other brands for due to lack of bad side effects and the efficacy of the mood lift I feel by taking 5 capsules each night. If I take them in the day they make me too sleepy. All pharmaceutical antidepressants have made me depressed, even if I wasn't before taking them (I was prescribed them to reduce fibromyalgia type pain), so Thorne 5HTP has been a blessing in getting a mood lift while enduring chronic pain.

Reduced sore throat and sore tongue immediately

Posted by Reviewer1559362 on Nov 22, 2009

This helped eliminate hayfever symptoms no pharmaceuticals were able to touch this year and I hadn't realised were hayfever (sore throat and sore tongue) until I took these capsules, but it seemed to lose its effect each day and required more capsules as the week went on. At the price of the capsules it was a costly endeavor as I had to take about 6-8 a day. So this time around, I am trying a different brand.

Awful side effects

Posted by Reviewer1559362 on Nov 22, 2009

Made me feel drugged out and very sleep after taking just once capsule per day. Felt like a pharmaceutical rather than a supplement and I didn't react well to it at all. Very disappointed and a but fearful of ever taking GABA again. I can valium with less side effects than this and valium reduced my muscle pain whereas GABA just made me feel like a zombie. Might be good for someone who wants a sleep medication.

Good for hayfever

Posted by Reviewer1559362 on Nov 28, 2009

Works best for me with one mega-dose of 4 capsules, especially in the morning, then 2-4 later in the day.

Can't feel a difference but no side effects

Posted by Reviewer1559362 on Nov 22, 2009

I haven't noticed a difference in pain level or energy taking this but I have had no adverse side effects which is important for me as I am sensitive to many pharmaceuticals and supplements. I might need to use this more long term for a benefit to appear.

No difference

Posted by Reviewer1559362 on Nov 15, 2011

This magnesium glycinate made no difference to pain. Five active with magnesium glycerinate and malic acid really helped. I thought this would be similar but it isn't at all. Will go back to fibroactive.

No difference noticed but no side effects

Posted by Reviewer1559362 on Nov 22, 2009

I didn't notice a big difference in how I felt taking olive leaf for fibromyalgia type pain but it didn't do me any harm either.

Liking this so far

Posted by Reviewer1559362 on Nov 22, 2009

This seems to help with hay fever symptoms so far but need to take two capsules at a time, maybe twice a day. It is still early days though.

Too many capsules to get the right dose of malic acid

Posted by Reviewer1559362 on Nov 22, 2009

I don't mind swallowing capsules but I needed to take 12 to get an adequate dose of malic acid. This, I feel, made my level of calcium citrate and magnesium too high.
