Long Time Friend Here

Posted by Reviewer3064760 on Jan 10, 2008

I've been taking this now faithfully for probably 15 years. One of the most potent natural anti-inflammatories that is so safe on your GI tract. Helps take away swelling & inflammation of arthritis, injuries, menstrual cramps with added benefit of increasing your T-helper cells for immune builder. I take at bedtime and awake with much less stiffness. Also helps lower cholesterol & keeps blood vessels healthy. Open a capsule and rub the oil on painful spots. Will help decrease large arthritic knuckles. I can't say enough good about this!! Probably will be a FOREVER friend!

Hair loss in women

Posted by Reviewer2650257 on Aug 30, 2012

Dr. Oz had this on his show. He said it will help with hair regrowth in women with thinning hair. Well it works for me! I am thrilled and cost less than other treatments for this problem. Hope this helps for someone else with their thinning hair. Mary/Calif

Hello from Canada, Over the past few months i have had chronic inflamed elbow joint, I have been taking 6 to 8 softgels, BCO. seems to be helping alot. The last few days i forgot to take my supplements, as a result the pain was worse. Within a day taking, i felt relief, so i recomend for pain and inflamed joints :) So thanks, the price is much better in US, as in Canada.

Balances Hormones, Moisturizes Skin

Posted by Reviewer3221350 on Apr 13, 2012

This is a great source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid. I take 500 mg twice a day. This also nourishes skin and hair from within. I have not experienced any side effects and I am very sensitive to such things.
