I really like this product. I have had low energy. Am 63 years old. When I have errands to run, I put three under my tongue and it gives me a subtle but real energy support. It does not at all cause nervousness or the jitters. I keep some in my purse too. I think if these pills help you, it means your adrenals are kind of stressed out. I love this product.

I was having what I thought were pains in my heart. I have heard several ads over the years on patriot internet radio about "heart drops". I found these pills that have the same ingredients as those heart drops so I bought them and have taken about 9 per day for a little over two months. My "heart pains" are completely gone now. I cannot say for sure what the problem was or if these pills cured the problem, but it sure looks that way to me. I will keep taking these as long as I can afford them. I much prefer to take pills than drops.

I ordered this because I read that restless leg syndrome is due to mineral deficiencies and I know that I, like most Americans, are mineral deficient because of the Standard American Diet. I take 3 capfuls each day and am halfway through the second of two bottles I ordered. I may notice a very slight improvement in my restless legs but nothing at all of any substance. Will continue taking until I use up second bottle and may send an update review if there are any changes. I wrote to the company about some of the ingredients which sort of sounded like the ingredients for an atomic bomb but they kindly wrote back to me and referred me to some articles on their website that explain why this is a non-issue and nothing to be concerned about. I have not yet read all those articles and I still feel a bit of concern. I am going to switch to NOW unflavored liquid mineral product as it seems to have the fulvic minerals and all the other good ingredients in the Vital Earth product but without the nuclear atomic sounding incredients such as barium and strontium and tritium etc. The taste of the product was fairly neutral to me. I just slug down a capful and quickly swallow it in one gulp and then chase with a sip of water, so while the taste is not great, I hardly taste anything at all. After all, the minerals in this product come from ancient decayed plants in deep mine-like holes beneath the earth, so it is bound to have a mud or dirt kind of taste. Trick is to take it like I said and taste is no problem at all. Even if I do not notice any improvement in the way I feel or my health condition, I want to continue taking a good liquid mineral product because I know having good minerals in my body is important. This Vital Earth brand is high quality and I would recommend it to others, with the one reservation I mentioned but have not fully explored yet. Other liquid vitamin mineral products, such as Tangy Tangerine by Youngevity, also contain a long list of the questionable nuclear sounding ingredients from the same kind of source.

I have been using these about 3 months. Just ordered two more bottles. They are easy to swallow and digest being veggie capsules. The magnesium form of aspartate makes the magnesium absorbable. Mag oxide is the cheap form and basically is not absorbable. Has vitamin D3, not just plain D like so many others. It is hard to say for sure but I think I am feeling all around better and think some of minor deficiences in certain vitamins and minerals have now disappeared. I have tried to find a cheaper multi vitamin mineral of this same quality and form and as best I can tell there is nothing else out there that is easy on the tummy and has such high quality forms of each ingredient. The price is good here, especially with free shipping with $20 order

I have a feeling I was, and maybe still am, considerably deficient in magnesium. I have noticed some differences in the way I feel since I started taking these. But since the little cup of vitamins I take every day is getting more full every day, I find taking these in tablet form very difficult. I like the dosage but would much prefer capsules or gel caps or something easier to swallow. This is a very good product but needs to be in another form.

The product was old when received and I would describe the taste as "no Taste" to rancid. Buy fresh almonds at a health food grocery store where turnover is rapid.

The price was good. The shipping charge was good and reasonable. The delivery time was splendid. I am thinking about ordering the same thing again. This was a positive experience on this item. The item was on sale and the shipping was reasonable. I do not know if that goes for all items at iHerb but for this item, a comparison on the web told me this was by far the best deal.

I at first ordered one bottle and used it as directed. I thought that maybe it allowed me to experience fewer feelings of hunger or what are the early signs of hunger. So I ordered another bottle to test it out further and see if there was some real curbing of my appetite with these pills. I am sorry to report that there was no substantive suppression of the hunger / appetite mechanism for me. I would have been willing to spend about $40 per month and use them regularly if I had been able to detect some at least small level of help in causing me to eat less. I would not recommend this product as a healthy way to curb one's appetite. There were no negative side effects of the pills and I do not think they caused me harm. If I could have rated it as "zero stars" I would have.
