Food intolerance advise: salicylates: This issue is directly connected to low oxidation rate. Epsom salt bath is a must. Test yourself for helicobacter pylori which is a simple breath test. This bacteria usually is accompanied by candida. So you need to consider taking a lot of probiotics even before you start with treatment as the outcome will be that candida overgrowth will take over. Consider taking S boulardii (for recreating the balance of good fungi) and a potent probiotics capsule. Food Amines: This is directly related to copper deficiency. That's why most people who suffer from H pylori also suffer from food amines intolerance because the stomach acid is reduced and copper is not absorbed properly. So try copper supplements for only 2 weeks, and see if your problem improves. Gelatin, margarine intolerance: cellulose enzyme which is necessary for digestion of these food is made from fungi in small intestines. Solution: start taking S boulardii and avoid sugar.

I learned that all my problem is related to extreme deficiency in good fungi, this product has helped my to digest cellulose once again which is also the reason to my candida overgrowth. good fungi is very important, don't get confused, it is NOT candida and it is essential in your fight with candida. I keep myself healthy with this product and Korean kimchi (use it for cooking). Remember though, best used 2 h after and 1 h before food so that it can do its magic on empty stomach.
First week I took these, I think it cleansed my system so effectively that I thought I would never again go without this. I coughed up a lot of phlegm and after that I stopped coughing completely. Prior to this, I used to suffer from horrible coughs which never ended. I believe in this product to the degree that I think everyone who is taking this would never get sick and can fight any problem. A great combination that works and enhanced my immune system.

I am suffering from so called candida and I have tried everything. I got this in mail yesterday and immediately took few and after 1 hour, things started to change and I had a strong die off reaction. While previously I showed intolerance to other brands, this product seems to be perfectly alright. I would never go without it even if one day I get over my candida problem. Strongly recommend it. Thank you iHerb for adding this to your Products.
These probiotics are truly as effective as promised. I am planing to stop all other probiotics I have taken before and only take these. They go well together will all other candida treatment products specially Saccharomyces Boulardii. I take them any time, day or night but I feel they are more effective around 1,5 hour after food. I also feel like they are more effective after cup of green tea.
I like the fact that this product has both vitamin C and biotin which are very important in your battle with candida. A tip is to take this after food that you think will aggravate your candida (20 min after). This way, you attack candida cells when they feed and are more vulnerable. Try it and you will notice a strange feeling in your head (not headache) which is a result of candida die off :)

This product initially was great for me so I took and took more. After a while I started to have a lot of strange symptoms; extremely oily scalp, itchy and dry body and skin rashes. I stopped everything except this one but I finally realised this was the problem. It took me a while to understand that iron was the culprit as my iron level is good and this increased my iron levels. I could tell vitamin C made me much worse but couldn't get the connection as I took this for its high zinc levels. This also increase adrenaline activities so be careful about that too.

I took the original form before (d-alpha Tocopherol) for a week and after a week I stopped that and started with this. First didn't notice anything and all was good. Slowly I developed rashes on my skin. After noticing things are getting worse, I took a 250 iu d-alpha again once and immediately things got better. This is a good product but ratio in this product is all wrong. If you take this, make sure you combine it with 250 or 400 iu d-alpha Tocopherol or buy "Now Foods - Gamma E Complex" instead. Remember the ratio between d-alpha/d-gamma is almost 10/1. d-gamma is important but d-alpha Tocopherol is much more important. Once done, combine with 1000mg vitamin C.

While RDI of Zinc to Copper is 15mg to 2mg, copper can be devastating to take if you are in excess. The ratio in this pills (which are small and apparently with very little filling) is perfect and it would suite everyone. I take another multivitamin with 15 mg of zinc (+ 15 mg zinc tablet) and I can tell this pill which brings the total zinc to 60 mg /day responds to me very well. You shouldn't need much more copper when taking zinc. Only high doses will lower your copper level. Your body regulates copper and absorbs more if required. Still, 50 % of copper is released in bile and this amount changes if you require more copper in bio-available form in your body. So a little extra is useful but don't go as far as 4 mg of copper/day.

Have another brand of selenium but by far this is much superior. I feel a big difference when I take this product. High quality stuff.
I had a very good experience with this product first few days but unfortunately I could not take it. I think my stomach was too weak. I had this very same experience when I ate raw garlic with food which explains the effectiveness of this product. So if you have no problem with garlic but need a replacement, this is simple way to help your liver and keep cholesterol levels low.
