My Reviews

very effective, incredible value

Posted by Reviewer1859641 on Jan 16, 2012

By far the best value for I've found for this, with nearly twice as much gymnemic acid per penny as the next best deal (also from Source Naturals). Living up to the "Ultra Potency" name (which curiously isn't included in the catalog heading at iHerb), it not only has the most gymnema extract per tablet, but the extract is high-concentration, with 75% gymnemic acid. I can vouch that gymnema dramatically helps in managing blood sugar. I know this because I'd been trying to go without it temporarily, and am feeling the difference. As of the time I am posting, this has been out-of-stock at iHerb for at least a month-and-a-half. I tend to be frugal, and wanted to see if I could wait it out. I can't wait anymore. The product I'm ordering instead costs two-and-a-half times more per mg of gymnemic acid, which is disappointing. iHerb is usually very good with replenishing its stock, so I hope that this hasn't been discontinued.

works well, good price

I am diabetic, and this definitely seems to help my eyes, particularly against the neovascular glaucoma and its associated pains. One of the better values, too.

disappointed

Posted by Reviewer1859641 on Jan 16, 2012

I bought this after recovering from a severe case of pneumonia. I rarely ever get sick, but given all the positive things I was reading and hearing about this product, I was expecting more. It's been three months, and I just recently got over a nasty cold. Perhaps the product helped me recover faster, but for me, I'm not sure a product like this is worth the price.

side effects

This isn't the fault of Doctor's Best, but the active substance in red yeast rice is lovastatin, and I can personaly attest to experiencing side effects with red yeast rice similar to those of statin drugs. I would probably recommend that those who aren't already seriously considering statin drugs to avoid this product.

powerful stuff, but be careful

You won't find many better values than with Doctor's Best (good quality, good price), and this product certainly does help with circulation and inflammation in many cases, but at least for me, taking more than one capsule per day seemed to aggravate a pinched nerve, much in the same way that glucosamine/chondroitin does for me.

your mileage may vary

I definitely notice a decrease in appetite after taking this, but the appetite suppression doesn't seem to kick in as quickly as suggested. Sometimes I don't notice the effects until the next day. As a result, it hasn't been as effective in getting me to eat less. It's also a bit pricey. I image others will probably have better success with this.

This product definitely helps with circulation, breaking up internal blood clots without prohibitively impeding clotting of external cuts and wounds. A capsule a day normally works fine for me, though I may take more if I had eat some rich food that day, or am going to take a plane flight.
