Seems to work, but dries skin.

I really want to like this stuff but I'm thinking more and more that putting alcohol on your skin is just bad. This stuff works at reducing blemishes and redness... but so does everything else with salicylic acid. I think the alcohol base is an impediment—it definitely dries out oily skin, but that can lead to flaking and a rebound in oiliness as your skin responds to being damaged. If I use this every day I do get flaky skin. If I didn't moisturize right after, I'm sure it would be a lot worse.

This is the best

This stuff is great, I have it every morning and every night. I look forward to it first thing every morning, the fizziness and stevia-(sugar-free)-sweet slightly acidic fruity flavour makes my mouth feel refreshed. It also helps me poop. I had to have senna tea all the time before, but magnesium is better and gentler than taking a stimulant laxative. I'm sure I was magnesium deficient before but I probably am not now. This is something we totally rely on.

Non-GMO is necessary

GMO soy is not something I want. It's good in smoothies. I only take a teaspoon, not a tablespoon, based on my doctor's Rx and the price of taking more.

Delicious

This stuff makes really nice hot chocolate. I make it with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and I sweeten it with agave nectar. It's unsweetened so it's way too bitter to take on its own (and I like black coffee). I don't notice any mushroomy taste. It seems energizing, definitely more than a regular hot chocolate but in a way that is nothing like a caffeine buzz and not nearly as physically stimulating (which is a good thing for me, most of the time). Really novel product and not a bad price.

Helps short-term and long-term

Really helps relieve itching and pain. It also seems to really promote healing over time, possibly due to stone root. It's really tiny but lasts a little while.

Maybe works?

I'm not sure about these. I tried regular (not pharma-) GABA before and I'm convinced it does not cross the blood-brain barrier—useless. The first pharma-GABA I tried was Max Relax GABA drink, and it seemed to be pretty relaxing (though maybe short-lived). This stuff seemed to work, at first. I quickly (after a few days) started just munching on them, probably ate 10 in one night, and didn't seem to get any effect. It could always be placebo (or lack thereof) but I think that I am particularly placebo-resistant (most supplements I get, which have reviewers saying stuff like "changed my life!", do absolutely nothing for me even in high doses). So I'm not sure... I really do feel like they can be pretty relaxing, I know I have felt them work (unlike regular GABA), but I don't know why it's not consistent.
