Helped a lot with fighting against viruses. Had to be taken with the first signs of cold 3-5 times per day, after that one-two for maintenance. Also good against candida. This is the good side. On the other hand it started to interfere probably with my thyroid (I am autoimmune hyper thyroid, still on remission). As I searched afterwards, its active component, hydroxy thyrosol may interfere with thyroid hormones - T3 and T4. The influence was rather mild but I still stopped taking olive leaf. At the same time it may be a suitable remedy for hypotrhyroid people. No bad side effects.

Tried in this winter. Effective when taken at the first symptoms of disease many times per day and after that 1-2 capsules for maintenance. Did not work for the "old" virus. The rationality behind may be that it helps to activate your first line - innate immune response, but at the same time it suppresses your adapted immune response (production of antibodies which anyway takes some time after the first contact with a virus). If your innate immune response is good enough and it kills the virus, then there is no need for activating antibodies anyway. If its not then it may even extend your illness because the body doesnt produce antibodies. This is only a guess but it really seemed to be a case. After stopping taking beta glucan when it did not work and after a couple of bad days my daughter actually started to recover. Before that there was kind of endless "almost sick" situation.

A good multivitamin and - mineral for those who can't easily metabolize folic acid or cyanocobalamine.Plus having mixed tocopherols in place of having only alpha tocopherol. The same with vitamin A - a mixed carotenes solution. Bought this product after a thorough search and consideration. From the bad side - I do not tolerate yet the dosage of folates (B9) per one capsule. It makes me dizzy and gives a headache. I am able to tolerate smaller amounts of B9 and B12. I am trying to work the dosage slowly up. Lets see. At the moment I am taking vitamins separately until I can take Thorne's product again. And probably, you need to add more magnesium and calcium to your daily intake.
I am taking it together with Wobenzym against my osteoarthritis that started to develop when I was only 45. At the beginning I tried glycosamine, condroitine and MSM and they seemed to help for a while, but pains did come bäck and then they did not help anymore. I started to find something else. Found Wobenzym which helped a lot but some minor complaints still remained. Finally, and this has been for 4 months already I am taking SAM-e 200-400 mg per day and I feel pretty much OK. I can claim that SAM-e definitely gave an additional effect to Wobenzym.
Me and my daughter, we have been taking it for more than a year for boosting our immune system. At the beginning, when her immune system was very weak as it had been already for couple of years, I think it helped first, to repear her digestive system because until this point she had had frequently indigestion. Together with multivitamines and minerals she seemed to get stronger, less problems with digestions. I cannot give my head that it was definitely colostrum that helped because there were other supplements, too she has been taking, rather it is a strong belief. At the same time, my fathers dog, who is pretty old and who is having problems with joints, got pretty much relief from taking the colostrum pills once per day. Before, he couldnt stay or lie down peacefully beacuse of pains and discomfort, but after a month he did not need to change his posture all the time. When the bottle got empty and there was a pause for about a month, his earlier behaviour came back. Now he is back on colostrumpills and lets hope that pains go away again,

It seems adding some physical and mental energy. Its pretty easy for me now to wake up and start to move. I would attribute this change to Mg-threonate.

Cannot give my head, but seems to give deep sleep when taken evenings. And seems to clear my head (thinking is sharper). Started to take second time and it has worked again.
It seem to help but in some days nothing does help because my eyes are really very dry. I have neen trying to combine lubricating gels together with drops such as Brite Eyes III. I guess when your eyes are not that dry as mine they would help enough.
Might be effective against seasonal allergies, but as we discovered afterwards, acts as a MAO-B inhibitor. If you have this certain genetic mutation, oxidizing of your neurotransmitters may become even slower. Not sure if it (slower breaking) is always bad and also not sure, how much this claim is research based but still, me and my daughter did not start to take it when spring arrived. Trying to find more information about. Its even difficult to give stars because people are different and just one size does not fit to all.It does not mean that product is bad.
