I read all the positive reviews of this product and decided to order it, my first Iherb order. Unfortunately on opening the bottle I was hit with a strong terrible chemical smell, like nail polish remover or some kind of strong cleaning chemical. There is no way I would consider ingesting it, so I guess I can't review the efficacy of the actual product as I will not be putting that in my body, I believe in trusting my nose. I took some powder out of the bottle to see if it was the packaging that had the odour but it was through the powder as well.

When I opened the bottle, there was a nasty chemical smell. I'm afraid to use it, I won't poison myself. Expensive bottle with pure chemical poison. Can I still get a refund?? Toen ik dit potje opende, schrok ik van de extreem chemische lucht. Was bang dat het zou ontploffen, zo sterk chemisch ruikt het. Logischerwijs durf ik het niet in te nemen, zo bang dat ik mezelf vergiftig. Echt zo jammer, had er zoveel goeds over gelezen. Maar deze moet je dus echt niet bestellen.
Fibromyalgia and energy

I just purchased this to try for my fibromyalgia pain and for my lack of energy. I just got it in the mail yesterday and started taking it this morning. Dr. Oz recommended one teaspoon three times a day. So that's what I'm going to try. I've taken two doses so far today and after the first dose I felt very drained and exhausted. Don't know how long it takes to feel results but the smell of the product is hard to get past. I almost gag when stirring it in orange juice but after mixed up it doesn't appear to have that odor. It doesn't have a bad taste or the orange juice mask the taste well. I am so in hopes this helps me as I have constant pain and the meds the doctors give you didn't help me....they make me too foggy headed. I can't really rate this product yet....but I will let you know after a week how it's doing. If anyone knows of a brand that doesn't have that horrible smell to it please share....I'm not sure I will be able to keep taking this one with the smell! It won't let you post with no rating so as of right now I'd have to give it one star until I know the effects.

Never had this problem before, but I have asked for a refund on this bottle, and will order the equivalent Jarrow product in the future.

I am using this product in conjunction for treating Chronic Fatigue. As yet I have not felt a lot of benefit. I have had this condition for 30 years and it could take some time. I am pleasede that it is not giving me negative reactions as many other products have. I will continue to use this for a period of 4 months to assess its help/affect.
