As I said in the title, there are odourless and high in allicin. Exactly what you want from a garlic supplement. I haven't been taking them for long but recently some people in the family were sick with a cold and I never caught it so maybe this contributed to that. I also take Vitamin C and other supplements but I believe garlic should be in most peoples supplement regime.
I've only had these a week. My daughter enjoys the flavor so that's no problem at all. I give her the daily dose for a 4 year old (2 per day). My only concern is I've noticed her energy levels spike and not always in a nice way, she gets hypo and erratic (or becomes a pain in the bum in simple english!). I'm going to keep going for another week or 2 to see if this settles, failing that I might have to stop giving them to her which is a shame because stupid me ordered 4 of these bottles. Giving 3 stars, if those symptoms go I'll upgrade to 5 later. If they stay I'll drop to 2 stars.
I have dermatographia, a rare skin condition in the dermatology/eczema family. No doctor has been able to explain why I suddenly got it 3 years ago but I've been on daily anti-histamines ever since. After more research I now strongly believe it's a histamine intolerance - there is no arguing, my body is over loaded with histamine. These tablets manage to degrade histamine levels slightly, I can get 36 hours between anti-histamine tablets where normally I need them every 24 hours. Early days, I hope they can work better over time.
I have heart burn (acid reflux) and regular Vitamin C is rough on my stomach, I've always taken 500mg for fear of what 1000mg might do to me. I gave this a chance, being 1000mg I wasn't sure. To my surprise they are amazing. No trouble with my stomach even on empty! 1 a day is enough for me but if I feel a cold coming on I might up the dosage to 2.
These are excellent supplements but please understand how Vitamin D3 works. D3 is an interesting vitamin that has a half life of 15 days. That means whatever you put into your body today, half of that will still be in your system in 15 days time. Unlike many vitamins, D3 stores for 30 days. That's great because you can stretch these out. You also don't need to take them daily. If you're extremely deficient then perhaps, but taking 1 of these weekly is the same as taking 7 x 1,000 IU's daily. A specialist I once spoke to recommended between 1 to 2 of these weekly for most people low in D3. I personally take just the 1. Vitamin D3 is in fashion now and is linked to many things, I developed Asthma a few years ago, in the last 12 months it became particularly bad. Over the last 6 months of being on Vitamin D3 it's 100% gone! No kidding, no need to take any of my puffers anymore. History! Make of that what you will but I'm a believer now.
Title says it all really. Decent quality, I think I paid 13c $AUD for it.

Cap keeps my head dry in the rain, I mean shower. Other parts work as advertised.
