Ester C

Posted by Reviewer3145111 on Feb 22, 2009

Regular C kills my stomach; these are fantastic. Don't notice any acid feeling.

Toss up

Posted by Reviewer3145111 on May 10, 2009

This product really seems to stave off colds, etc. when I feel like I'm coming down with something, but it consistently gives me loose stools. Not sure if I will keep using it.

Great for PMS symptoms

Posted by Reviewer3145111 on Oct 01, 2008

I've been using this (2x/day) for about 7 weeks now, through two menstrual periods. The first cycle (after just a couple weeks of use), my PMS symptoms (depression, high level of irritability, anxiety) were decreased by maybe 25%. This cycle, I didn't even realize it was the days I would have normally had symptoms until a couple days later, because I had no (or very few) noticeable symptoms. I don't get physical symptoms of PMS so don't know how this works for those, but it definitely helped with the mental stuff. Oh also I've been on hormonal contraception for about 4 years; I'm using Vitex in conjunction with that.

Works great!

Posted by Reviewer3145111 on May 26, 2009

I'm just as pleased with this product as the others on this site. I was having trouble with persistent UTIs, and taking lots of cranberry wasn't helping. Antibiotics would mostly clear them up, but I was still having mild symptoms in between infections. I took this (4 capsules) 3x/day, plus cranberry, for about 2 weeks, and it totally cleared it up. Now take 2-4 pills twice a day for maintenance, no cranberry. Highly recommended.

Zinc

I can't swallow zinc tablets so these capsules are great.

Great breakfast-replacer, great product

Posted by Reviewer3145111 on Mar 07, 2011

I have been using this product every morning (with one exception) for three weeks now, and I'm very happy with it. As other reviewers have mentioned, it certainly doesn't taste like a milkshake. However, I actually really enjoy the taste of it with fruit (as described on the label); I also usually add blueberries in addition to the banana and half an apple. I have run out of fruit a couple of times and just had the powder alone; it's pretty gritty and not tasty by itself, but it is made significantly better with a little sweetener. More important than the taste, the stuff makes my body feel great. I've stopped taking several other supplements because I get enough in this (fiber, stinging nettle, flax seed), plus I get a lot of other great ingredients. I also lost a couple of pounds the first week, which was a nice bonus. The product is a bit pricey, but I'm using it as breakfast, and at iHerb prices it's certainly cheaper than breakfast out (or even a latte). More than I would pay for yogurt and toast at home, but that doesn't usually hold me til lunch, while this does. Will keep buying it until I can't afford it anymore!

Prefer capsules

Posted by Reviewer3145111 on May 26, 2009

Works as well as the capsules, but the capsules are far more convenient. This works when the capsules aren't available, though.

Seems to work

Posted by Reviewer3145111 on Aug 13, 2009

This seems to have a mild calming and uplifting effect. I've been taking one 50mg capsule when I'm feeling very stressed or anxious.
