Over the last couple of years, I bought, tested & reviewed many products. My main focus is on improving the health of my daughter who has ADHD. She now is off her chemical medicine (tried Ritaline with very bad side effects, in fact it is legalized SPEED and made her super anxious, we stopped that and then tried Strattera, which has many dangerous side effects). I educated myself as much as I could and after seeing many child psychologists / psychiatrists, I could only conclude they only want to be legal BIG PHARMA drug pushers. The root cause I think was bad sleep, guess what, induced by those prescribed chemicals. Just imagine how you feel when you had a sleepless night. That is over now, gladly. I red a lot and ordered alot. For my little girl, what really helps is MELATONIN + HOLY BASIL + MAGNESIUM (glycinate) + ZINC. Guess what... many pseudo ADHD children might have a problem with over excreting of zinc & magnesium in the urine (pyroluria).
did not have any sleep inducing effect on me, nor on my daughter another brand with only 0.5 mg sublingual is more effective
this is rather expensive and gave me a serious flu like HERX reaction it was supposed to be a more mild candida fighter, but gave me a super migraine , throat pain, well, serious herxheimer die-off reaction from internet: The point when the die-off symptoms kick in is the time when many people prematurely abandon their Candida diet, so its important to be prepared. When yeast cells are rapidly killed, a die-off (or Herxheimer reaction) occurs and metabolic by-products are released into the body. I did not quit as I knew about what could happen, but advertised was : gentle, cleansing effect without harsh discomfort common to cleansing.
cheaper than other brands take it together with glycine + glutamine = same as what you find in reduced gluthatione
Zinc Gluconate One of the most popular forms of dietary zinc, zinc gluconates are created by a process of industrial manufacturing. This process essentially ferments glucose, offering a supplemental product with an extremely long shelf-life. Unfortunately, gluconate supplements are just a chemical substitute for actual zinc. Sadly, the body absorbs very little of this processed form, as the bioavailability of these chemicals is virtually none. vote for this so people are aware and don't spend money on this
and the extra ingredients to help your liver are an extra in cheaper brands, you might find a mix of those and no indication of the individual amount of ingredients

look up in google : unmetabolized folic acid dangers this one gets 100% RDA wish I knew before ordering that folic acid can be cause of many diseases FOLIC ACID is not bio available and may cause many diseases be warned stop buying supplements with folic acid do your research
as my username suggests, I am on a path to help my daughter with ADHD sam-e is supposed to help but it made her more anxious better stick to TMG, which is the cheaper version of making SAM-E in the body
Vegetable cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, silicon dioxide, vegetable stearic acid, vegetable magnesium stearate. some ingredients makes this less than healthy ... now I prefer to buy what is possible in powder form you get more for your buck, and you don't have all the extra unwanted chemicals cheap in this case, prefer to pay more for better quality
you cannot absorb more than 500 mg every few hours so all the brands with 1000 mg, is that just to induce diarrhea when you are constipated ? you know: 1 gram every 15 min till you have loose stools and if you count all the grams of vit C you took until your "explosion", that is the limit of vit C you need per day it is cheap and in the "Ascorbic Acid" form, so NOT REAL VITAMINE C better take ascorbate, but even NOW FOOD , don't specify it is NON GMO sourced and many products are manufactured in CHINA have to read the small labels to find this out
