I was a lucky child. I grew up on raw milk from a local dairy and a full complement of natural vitamins/supplements from 1940 on. My father was a doctor and mother was a supt of surgery at our hospital. Now I am an old man but in very good health. I exercise regularly andI look 20 years younger than my calendar age. I take only one pharmaceutical for back pain as the result of an injury. All my other needs are satisfied with vitamins and herbs and healthy organic food.

Been using this product for some months. Friend using it to deal with infalmation in shoulder. We found that the product made a big difference in the shoulder pain within a week of starting it. Our local expert (has 3 Phds in the field) examined the formulation and said it was a good one that will absorb well. Certainly worked for us. 6 caps a day for flare up. 3 caps a day maintenance. Worth the money.
I worked in a Health Food store nearby in the 1990's. We carried Michaels Blood Pressure there. It worked so well that after a month most customers could stop taking pharmaceutical blood pressure medicines. Matter of fact, several local doctors were sending their patients to us to get Michael's Blood Pressure Formula because it worked better than medicines they could prescribe. UPDATE I spent some time researching this product and compared the ingredients in it now to the ingredients in the product when I worked in the Health Food Store. What has happened is that Michael's has stopped advertising the product as a combination of herbal and homeopathics. AND far as I can see they have removed the homeopathic ingredients. Those, IMHO, were the effective ingredients that made the early version of the product so effective. I have no idea why Michael's went that way unless that caved in to ignorant and uninformed criticism from doctors and others who have no understanding of homeopathy. So, I have changed to using Circu Pressure, as will be seen elsewhere in my reviews. it works and works very well.

This is quite satisfactory, a good product. Solgar is certainly a good name in the business. I recommend this Vitamin E with Selenium.

This is a very good herbal diuretic formula and the company is a respected name in the business. I find it an acceptable substitute for pharmaceuticals that treat fluid retention, which I do not want to take. I do find that I need to use 3 capsules a day.

I have used this product for some time. It is doing the job as claimed. I like the availability of the 45mcg caps as I need to moderate my intake of K2. I find this to be a very good preparation.
This is a very good formulation and is quite effective. My problem is that I am sensitive to Ginseng and I found that I could not use this formula because it is too strong for me. I would recommend it to most people who are not so sensitive to energy products as I am. It will work very well and you will know that the product is working.

My experience with Eclectic Institute products has been very good and the Hawthorn is a good one. I have a circulation condition and when I take the Hawthorn I can tell that it is really working. With other brands I have sometimes noticed a lack of effectiveness.

At first I was a bit concerned about the size of the tablet and whether it would actually dissolve as I am in my 70's and my digestion is not a strong as it was. But I found after using these tabs that they do work just fine. I get the same or better results that I did with a powder form of Glucosamine in a veggie cap.

Preliminary results: After about a week of use I checked my blood pressure at a nearby pharmacy. Took 6 readings at 5 minute intervals. Low reading was 127/74 which is 30% lower than before using the product. So I would say I am seeing a very good improvement. UPDATE after several months I can say that this product is working very well and has done a great deal to lower my blood pressure. When I was younger I did a lot of intensive running on a local beach almost daily. Then, at age 45 my BP was 120/70 always. Now at age 77 my BP is in the above normal zone, my doctor has not suggested pharmaceutical BP meds, mainly because of the horrible side effects. And I find that during activity in the day my BP can test as high as 159/90 Which is clearly too high. BUT I found in testing after I was completely relaxed that it was as above, 127/74 which is a BIG IMPROVEMENT. I credit that to the use of this product and would recommend it highly.
Something I keep in my cabinet in case I feel a cold or flu coming. I do not use pharmaceuticals and this is quite helpful. Anything don't feel right I take some of the Echinacea for a few days. Note that you should not take Echinacea regularly, it is far more effective when taken at the onset of illness if you have not taken it in the preceding weeks.
