It only matters wheter or not does the product do what it should do! Hello and welcome! :) Most of these products in here are not approved by FDA. As it is said - although the benefits of some dietary supplements have been documented, the claims of others may be unproven. Therefore my job here is to search, find and present the best reviews of personally used products which works out for the cause they are meant to... Or sometimes not... So... Keep looking, read it, like it!

This is a experience of a health consultant. "I have been seeking to clarify what the difference is in tastes, also. I am a health consultant and have recommended the original GSE to my clients for more than a decade. A client came to me with the new labeled bottle, saying it tasted different. I finally called Nutribiotic (the manufacturer). I was told that the manufacturer of Citricidal did not register its product with the FDA, so Nutribiotic could not sell GSE for internal use if it contained Citricidal. Therefore, it now uses other suppliers for its grapefruits. They say that's why it tasted different. They say they can't say that the grapefruits are organic because they make up less than 75% of the whole. I don't believe that is correct. I believe that they could say, in the tiny ingredient list, "organic grapefruit seed extract." What bothers me is the fact that the label still says "Original." It is not the same. Also, I am very concerned to hear that it does not function as well as previous batches. Citricidal used a proprietary process to make grapefruit seed extract so effective at killing the bad stuff without harming the good. If Nutribiotic is now making its own formula, it is unlikely that it is using, or knows, the proper method used in Citricidal. I used Citricidal years before the branded "GSE" came out. It saved my life by finally allowing my gut to return to balance. The old formula saved a family member from getting peritonitis when his appendix burst. This obvious bait and switch by Nutribiotic is very disturbing." As for personal experience - yes, the taste has changed, now it is bitterness. But it seemed heleped anyway. Judge upon yourself.
This bag was too ecological for this world. So within hours it broke and went to bags heaven... And yeah. No handles!
I have been taking Cordyceps for almost a year if not a little longer and have noticed considerable benefits over time. I think in this product inline with a few other supplements have boosted my immune system as I haven't had so much as serious cold since 2011. I have a very active lifestyle (Military, Crossfit, etc) and noticed my body recovers faster from the physical abuse of my lifestyle. P.S. it positively affects your memory-retention and focus, energy enhancing, general sense of well-being, and it supports a healthy immune system with a balanced inflammatory response. Cordyceps is also an excellent antioxidant, to name a few.
Rose hips are particularly high in vitamin C content, one of the richest plant sources available. So, thay are used to help prevent colds and influenza as well as treating rheumatoid arthritis (for joints). BUT be CAREFULL - it is really strong powder. Use it no more than two teaspoons per day. Otherwise it can make you sleepy, or worse - make your heart pulsate very quickly. You can use it with jam, jelly, syrup, marmalade. It will make sweet sour taste and healthy as well.
It has a very strong smell of oils - to be concrete - it smells like one of those candle repellents for mosquitos. Also, it doesnt foam very well. You have to rub real deal with it to make it foam. It doesnt remove swet odour, it still stays there. Oh, by the way, it is not african. Nor it is black african soap. The word African goes for the brand, the black goes for the colour. It has nothing to do with the real one. DO NOT BE MISTAKEN.

For years, every month is miserable for nearly two weeks, debilitating cramps etc. I've been to so many doctors, they just prescribe 'the pill', which didn't help much and created other issues (have tried multiple brands). I stumbled on a review of Dong Quai, did some searches and decided it couldn't hurt to try. I take 2 a day and the difference has been amazing. In general, my energy and mood are better. Cramps that used to take excessive pain killers every 2-3 hours for at least a week, now take a few regular doses of ibuprofen for 3 days. Heavy 6-9 days is now much lighter 4-5 days. I used to have nasty headaches at least 1-2 a week, they still happen but aren't nearly as bad. I want to call every one of those doctors and ask why none of them knew about this. Probably sounds like an ad but it helped me.
Happy with this purchase. Now Foods offers a lot of good stuff, this is one of them. I only wish it was a veg. formula. Tabs also contain Ca, Boron, Mn, Zn, Oat Straw, Bentonite. I however switched to Diatomaceious Earth as Silica suppl. Silica is super needed element (mineral) and is usually depleted with age. With silica (and Zn) hair and nails do get better. Research info on silica. As well use it with: --Vitamin D3, which aids in the absorption of calcium (and also boosts the immune system, helping to ward off colds and flu). --MK-7 (vitamin K2), which research has indicated can increase bone formation as much as 15-20% and decrease bone breakdown by 20-25%. It also helps prevent cardiovascular disease, enhances memory and fights against premature aging. --Magnesium citrate, which lowers bone breakdown and increases bone growth. Additionally, it helps maintain proper pH balance in the body, acculturate bowel regularity, and decreases muscle pain and cramping. --Boron, which helps the body better utilize the calcium and magnesium you take. This complex has some boron, but not enough to suit some recommendations.
I've never had a toothpaste as effective as this one. I typically don't have the best results in taking care of my teeth - often a cleaning at the dentist turns into a blood-bath and have even required scaling to deep-clean. I have had remarkable results using this toothpaste - my teeth ALWAYS feel like they do when I leave the dentist for a cleaning (minus the pain and swelling....) - always smooth and clean. I haven't needed scaling in several years and haven't developed a single cavity in the few years since I've been using this. It has a very mild flavor and a different consistency than most toothpastes, but it is very pleasant and clean-tasting. In fact, I've never much cared for "regular" toothpaste flavors that are much too overpowering imo. I do use a mechanical toothbrush as well, which may also account for my great checkups lately, but other family (those who don't use this paste)that have the mechanical toothbrushes also have not had as good results as I have, so I'm convinced it's this paste, especially since they truly always do feel clean after I brush. I wish it were not so expensive, but you get what you pay for in this case! I didn't have another tube on hand after my last one ran out so I've had to use a trial size of arm and hammer that I had and already I can feel the plaque piling up on there after just 2 days. I'll never not have a back-up tube again!!

You can definitely rely on this product – brings me on foot if I’m tired. Looks, smeels and feels like those expensive cordyceps mushrooms in Tienshi shop… This one goes to permanent purchase list. Very happy I found this. I can say the difference came into effect after less than 1 week.
It has the colour, and the smell, and the taste of a mushroom. The US brands are twice more expensive than those in China. Both sides claimed to HAVE the REAL one. The only question remains - where it grows. Real one grows in TIbet, but many senior Tibet locals believe it is a SIN to sell it rather than just use it. Younger generation - do not think that way. It is a sad, but we do not have a opportunity to see where MRM brand grows its cordyceps. But the US brands helped me so far. This one - too.
