I tolerate this better than ordinary Q10, which seems to cause joint pain. This is good and gives me energy

I take Reishi at night and this product gave me terrible hot flashes all night! It's a shame because I like this brand, but I think they overdo the bioperin (black pepper extract) and ginger. It may be good if this is the only product of theirs you take, but I take two others, one with ginger/ bioperin and one just with bioperin. I didn't think it fair to knock more than one star off, but I won't personally buy this again. vc
Dose is too low
Too much calcium carbonate - prefer products with high proportion of calcium citrate
Unfortunately bought two of these as I thought it was normal golden seal root - won't buy it again

One wonders what they have got to hide? I have purchased this product several times and thought the formula seemed quite good. However, I noticed that vitamin B9 is listed as "Folate (as folic acid and (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate, glucosamine salt)". This bothered me as I know that Folic Acid is actually bad for you and has been linked to cognitive decline and cancer. This is not the case with (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate. I therefore contacted the company to ask what percentage of the B9 in this product is the dangerous folic acid, and what percentage is the beneficial (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate. This is the reply I got: "While we appreciate your interest in our Coenzyme B Complex Advanced, the exact percentages and amounts of the ingredients in the formula are proprietary and we cannot release this information. We can tell you the ingredients are listed in descending order by weight." I live in the UK and I think such practices would be illegal here. It is fairly obvious that they have something to hide, or they would have given me a straight answer. I assume that most of the product is folic acid and there could just be a token grain of (6S)-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate to fool you into thinking it's safe. I am appalled.

I bought some of this a few years ago and it was brilliant. However, this time, the spray just wouldn't work. I tried rinsing it out, pumping it under water and finally removing the spray arm. It still wouldn't work and the thing that has really made me mad is that it seems to me that there are particles in the liquid which are too big to go through the spray tube. I have completely wasted my money, because I can't use it. I have always considered Gaia to be a good brand but it is obvious that their quality standards have dropped and they cannot be bothered to test products to make sure the delivery method works.

Bought this for myself. No matter what I do, it gets up my nose and results in cough, irritated nose and eyes. It seems much more drying than other powders and possibly lighter so floats around in the air. I wouldn't like to give this to a baby.
