This is a very tough product to rate. I bought it after the very promising reviews I managed to find all over the web. I mean so many people all over the world praise this product as the best solution for stress, fatigue and a host of other issue. The product also appears to be backed up by a considerable number of clinical trials. Half of the content of the capsule is a Chyawanprash mix, which is a traditional Indian rejuvenation formula that is very famous worldwide. I also liked it initially because it has mostly WHOLE herbs, not extracts or fractions of herbs (water extract, CO2 extract, Alcoholic extract, etc..). Now, in terms of results, I want to advise those using this product to be PATIENT. This product works ever so SLOWLY. It takes so much time to get a notable result. I felt nothing out of it (except making me sleep which happened first time I took it) until more than two months has passed. After two months and going towards the third months (depending on your body and condition), you will start seeing results in shaa ALLAH. You will notice that you do not usually get upset or stressed as easily, but it is not like the same feeling I used to get from other adaptogens (Rhdiola, Ashwagandha etc..). It is more of a feeling that "I can not be bothered" if you know what I mean. It is a sense of "I am not interested in an argument or stress". More than I am calm and collected. Furthermore, It gives a mild improvement in libido which is felt also after sometime. It also made my stools uniform and made my trips to the men's room more regular. Skin felt a bit softer after sometime, and you will feel that your muscles are getting stronger, very mild muscle gain. Overall it is a good supplement, but there are two downsides to it. It is very mild in effects and takes so much time to work. I believe it has benefits as a “General Anti Aging Tonic”, or as part of an anti-aging regime of supplements, than a supplement used to control a certain condition that a person might suffer from.

My wife uses this. She is very stressed taking care of our three kids. She used to yell and shout all the time and was generally very stressed out. After two weeks on this supplement, she watches the kids fight and instead of screaming s d shouting she looks at them and laugh! A big difference. Good for anyone under stress and wants to improve his mood.

Tried his product to clean up my colon from parasites (de-worm). Took 10 capsules in an empty stomach and after an hour just ha a normal breakfast. On y fest trip to the men's room my stools were full of parasites (I am sparing you the experience). I contined with it for a number of days. My stools became clean and my digestion improved. Very effective product.

Waited for a very long time before this product was brought online by I-herb. Have been researching a large number of similar products, and came to the conclusion that this one is by far the most superior, in terms of its components. It is the only multi that I know of that has balanced (whole) vitamin E with all E vitamers present. Decent amounts of D, and superior forms of B vitamins. This product particularly has the methylated form of B12 as opposed to cyanocobalamin form, which has cyanide, which is universal to other multis. The ingredients in this multi are not without flows however, it contains too little zinc (11 mg I think), which is low for a sexually active male or a person in stressful conditions (usually would need more zinc), also if the person is low in zinc to begin with. Maybe also more Folate than a person would usually need. Finally, it also could benefit from more B5, more Magnesium, and more C (it is particularly low on Vitamin C). My final saying on this multi is that you feel the effect immediately (two or three days after you start taking it). It feels like night and day. This multi serves as a basic pillar for any supplements program for any purpose. This is the best Multi-vitamin by far, but some tweaks in its composition would make it better still. Four star is adequate in my opinion.

This product has managed to achieve a result that no other formula has ever been able to bring ( tried a large number of them over the years). Microcosmic orbit actually delays climax. As much as this might not be an issue for many people, it was a major issue for me. However, that product changes the game dramatically. When you take this product, you get – at the beginning - this "mild/subtle" inner peace, and that is it. However, if you continue to take it for long, or double the dose (after one to three weeks), you start to get some energy and digestion improvement, and a bit of a lift-up in mood. As you progress with it (fourth week perhaps) you start to notice delays in climax. Overall, it is a very good product, and as far as I know, the only one that offers this beautiful mix of astringent herbs that provides some relive the annoying PE condition.

This product is still amazing for controlling Cortisol levels, it is the only PS that works for me, unlike other PS brands that just does nothing. THe only downside is teh price. It is expensive and I have to use almost ten caps(1000 mg) to get the desired effect.

I have tried different brands of Royal Jelly before. Almost all of them give a lot of energy and relieve fatigue. They even make you feel stronger (in terms of muscle strength) and help you focus better at work. This if course used to happen acutly and by using very high dose. I tried to do the same with NF Royal Jelly but it did not materialize. Once I even tried a very high dose (20 mg/3 times a day), but still got a short burst of energy and that was it. It just did not work for me, and I now know that not all RJs are created equal.

Bought this product for my Son, after reading all the glowing and raving reviews of on all supplement selling websites. The product worked in a sense that my Son no is no longer unable to maintain eye contact, now he does, and he listens and responds. Before he was to hyperactive, never listened, and had some mild sleep trouble. Now he does not have sleep trouble no more and for the first time in years, he actually sleeps through the night without having to wake up. He also does not try to annoy or upset his brother needlessly as he used to do before. However, the effects stopped at that. He still has his temper tantrums, which did not go away, and he is still upset and cries more often. I am still glad that his sleep has been fixed and that he listens more. Perhaps more benefits will in shaa ALLAH accrue long-term. In my opinion, four stars rating is adequate at this stage.

This supplement has been a bless from ALLAH. It was the only thing that worked for low adrenal output (low cortisol) at a time when nothing worked. I would give it seven starts if a I can. My adrenal output was so low, I would always feel tired from the smallest amount of effort, I wake up feeling tired, my blood sugar is chronically low, my blood pressure would go so low and I would feel like throwing up all the time. I was unable to work or do simple household errands. I tried this supplement at a very high dose (12 caps) a day, on an empty stomach first thing in the morning with a table spoon of honey dissolved in water. In two days, I was normal again, for the first time in so long. I can eat normally, digest better, have energy to work and drive my wife around, help around the house, etc. my back stopped hurting and my I felt much better in general. Whenever, wherever I stop taking this suspplement in get to feel it perhaps four days later, I start getting low blood pressure again, low blood sugar and the feelings of doom and gloom with backache creeps up on me again. I recommend this supplement to anyone who is suffering from low adrenal output, particularly low cortisol, it normalizes things very nicely, and enables the person to function normally. It is also a natural herb and this product is without additives or binders and is reasonably priced.

I had a serious episode of adrenal fatigue - have been struggling with that for the past two years. However, after an episode of food poisoning, it became much worse. I used to wake up feeling dizzy, low blood pressure, want to stay in bed all the time, you name it. I used to take Siberian Elutheoro also from Paradise herbs, it worked very well for a while, but on the level of fatigue that I had after this episode of food poisoning. It seemed to weak to make a difference. This is where I started Imperial Adaptogen. I usually use high dose of these supplements, because only high doses work with me. I used six capsules in the morning on empty stomach with a spoon of honey dissolved in water. I always take it on empty stomach one hour before breakfast. Now, behold, within one hour or so, I felt completely different. No dizziness, no low blood pressure, I went and had my blood pressure taken and it was normal! I proceeded to go to work. I feel great, I can drive, do my work, go our for coffee with colleagues, do short walks. I was normal again. In the evening, I still had energy to do my prayers, go our for dinner etc. This supplement is super duper good, and it is the real deal if you suffer from adrenal insufficiency or fatigue. It almost has every adaptogen under the sun and has no filler or binders. I tried it and it works really well.
