Keep it on hand and in the fridge. A product I have used for over a decade. Every winter the Sambucol or Sambucol sub (this one) comes out as soon as colds or flus show any symptoms. If you hit the symptoms with this early and steady as the bottle directs you will find your cold and flu season to be far less difficult. I also use it for general body aches and pains and weakness occasionally and it is good for that in aging persons. Can be used safely with children and nursing/pg. mothers despite the warning label. It helped my very pg DIL recover overnight from a puking flu in less than 24 hours that really knocked her down fast.
Buyt ir For Hubby
As a person with very high cholesterol hubby uses this with and without taking his statin drug. He seems to never want to run out so I assume its giving him more energy and more confidence. Cholesterol ratings may be hogwash but if you are taking statins, you had BETTER take at least 2-300 mg of CoQ10 as statins rob the body of this heart essential nutrient.
Great Q10 Formula

This is a very good liquid formula. It tends to thicken too much and must be shaken well before use and taken with water. It doesn't leave you with that jittery too many B's in my bonnet feeling. Does not bother the stomach either. Recommended for those who hate pills. Keep it refrigerated.

Nice smell, a bit slow to absorb but does an adequate job moisturizing. Much better than paraben laden lotions of any kind.
Not Everyones Cup of Calcium
Posted by Reviewer2128490 on Aug 16, 2010
I bought this because of its very excellent reviews. I am sure it does have its place but it is an extremely acidic, strong tasting product regardless of how much water you add to it. The flavor is unnattractive and it would be best left flavorless or have genuine lime flavor only. The problem here is that for this form of calcium/magnesium to fizz it has to have citric acid as a catalyst. For those with sensitive stomachs or who simply cannot tolerate strong acidic bases, this product will add to indigestion issues. I would prefer this product had NO B vitamins added because they are already overused in many food propducts and daily vitamins which the average user will not sacrifice to use this product. I think if you have a very alkaline system, this product will produce good results and create the calming effect desired. For me, the acidic base was an aggravant,the B vitamins a further assault and the taste nauseating. Lastly, some people cannot tolerate a cal/mag ration of 1/1. I need mine at cal2/mag1. This ratio produced stomach cramping and stool issues when taken at a full dose.
Bitter and Gave Me Acid

Very bitter tasting but gave me a very acid stomach each time I tried it. Decided not to use it. I think it may be the calcium form in it is too acidic for my stomach.
Hubby Loves It

He was using pills, horse pills you have to take multi times a day. This works better he says, you get more absorption out of making it into a liquid with juice. Good value for a very spendy product whatever form you choose.
Ladies One and All Get U Some
This is a tea I think ALL ladies should keep on hand. It is more than a good uterine tonic, it has very positive effects on any sort of infection or even yeast problem in the female reproductive system. If you get ovary aches or vaginal itching, try a cup with some honey.

I like this product beause I have to chew my pills and this soft gell does not taste bad even chewed. It also seems to work efficiently. Coq10 is one of those products I don't see any immediate difference but notice one when I got off it for awhile.

Very good product. This is a good combination of ingredients, not overpowering to give you the jitters but just right. The flavor is better than most liquids so its easy to get down with just a glass of water. Better taken with food to get the most out of it. I like NOW products, they always have good quality and IHERB makes sure everything is fresh and in date. That is very critical.
Like The Power Best
I like the powder best, I can add exactly what I want each day and it has fewer fillers. You may have to use more because this is a small dose even at the two scoop level. Wish they made it in a 300mg two scoop formula.
My favorite from this company. The lovely genuine rose scent is intoxicating but you have to like ROSES. If you don't this will be a mistake. I love it, reminds me of my Great Aunts bath. It's a good soap overall and good value but the mud and plain scent are best for those with extreme allergy issues as they are not attractive daily use soaps.
