Tasty immune booster

Posted on Dec 09, 2011

5 peope found the following review helpful

I mainly bought this because I read an article that said it was good for the brain, and I've been forgetful lately. My memory has definitely improved recently, but that might in part be a result of the gingko and gotu kola supplement I'm also taking. The main thing I've noticed since I started incorporating chyawanprash into my supplement routine a few weeks ago is that I managed to avoid a terrible fever and cough that both my sons got. I can't help but think it's the chyawanprash that strengthened my immune system enough to ward off that illness. Before I bought this, I read reviews on here that said it didn't taste good and that it was difficult to spread. I think it's very tasty--more like a typical Indian chutney than a jam in flavor--sweet with a warming, slightly spicy finish. When eaten straight off a spoon, it warms the throat. I have no trouble at all spreading it. You don't need to refrigerate it, and I find it spreads fine with a knife. I've eaten it on toast and on waffles. It doesn't spread evenly over the waffles, but it works well enough and makes a tasty substitute for syrup. I'm interested to discover the long-term benefits of this supplement after I've been taking it a few months. So far, so good!

A high quality herbal product

Posted on Aug 17, 2011

I used this product for a few years until Gaia briefly took it off the market to reformulate it. During that time, I used a brand that I could get easily and cheaply at my local health food store. I was happy with it for a time, but then my chest pains starting returning with increasing frequency. By then, the Hawthorn Solid Extract was once again available, so I ordered it. I haven't had any episodes since going back on this product. The taste is pretty good, and for some reason, it's easier for me to remember to take something I have to use a spoon for.

High Quality Product

Posted on Oct 02, 2011

I have been impressed with the quality of Gaia Herbs products ever since I started taking their Hawthorn extract several years ago. I just started taking the Gikgo and Gotu Kola a couple of months ago, but it seems to have made a notable difference on my ability to focus and remember things. Also, it's not horrible-tasting like so many herbal formulas preserved in alcohol. The flavor is very mild.
