iHerb Customer Reviews
Product is great; iherb packaging is NOT. iherb does NOT use dry ice to pack this product; they use regular ice packs from freezer and a small styrofoam packaging (product and ice pack inside the styrofoam). In the summer time and hot temperatures, it takes very little time for the ice pack to return to normal temperature and therefore does not protect the product in shipping. I have shopped iherb for numerous years and will continue to do so, but am very disappointed in the packaging of this type product. Will not buy this item from iherb again.
Started with Protec after carefully reading and researching. Felt it would be best all round. We weren't disappointed. A daily part of the morning routine makes noticeable improvement in digestion. Son-in-law didn't bring it on his trip, and noticed a large difference (flatulence) without his daily Protec. We are very pleased with the performance of this supplement.
