I take 2 in the morning and 2 at night. They prevent the skin on my face and body from being dry. Highly recommended if you suffer from pyroluria.

This product is quite pricey as are Thorne's other products. However, it has been great on my stomach, and my husbands. We take 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening without any problems. We need a lot of vitamin C for pyrolle disorder and undermethylation but many brands cause problems, expecially the powders. So would recommend this for anyone.

I have been interested in the Blood type diet for many years now and found that many of the recommendations did work for me (although not all) so I thought I would give these a try. Am taking 2 each morning (in addition to my many other supplements) and am finding they work well. I take them on an empty stomach before breakfast and they definitely make me feel better and eliminate any constipation. They are certainly worth trying if you are Blood Type A. I preferred them to Dr Ohhira's Probiotics Original Formula (which were much more expensive) and also they also work out cheaper than Enzymatic Therapy's Pearls IC, although I have not tried those. I think the combination of prebiotic and probiotic in these is very beneficial so not only are they contributing good bacteria, but are feeding them as well.

I keep forgetting to use this but it can be stirred into almost any hot liquid. It does not gel like the one in the red container. The nutrient content is excellent, especially if you can't or don't eat a lot of meat.

After reading some good reviews of this product I decided to try it for me and my husband. I tend towards constipation if not careful with what I eat and drink and unfortunately, after a few days, this product started to make me constipated. However, my husband tends the other way and now it appears his stools are more solid and he is feeling well so I am continuing to give him a tablet every morning with his other supplements. Just shows that we all have different needs and that our gut bacteria all vary too. Obviously these tablets best complement his bacteria, but I need something to help me go!

This is perfect for my supplement regime for pyrolle disorder, undermethylation and high copper. Prescribed by my doctor, taking this for the rest of my life - so much better than medication - which only covers up symptoms and doesn't actually make you better. This (along with all the others) keeps me strong and functioning well.

I was alerted to SAMe about a year ago and have found it to be wonderful. As someone who benefited from SSRI's but did not want to use them long term, I found SAMe to be the perfect substitute. My mood is much improved, it also gives me energy and takes away some aches and pains. Its supposed to be good for detoxing the liver but I can't tell if that is happening to me or not. I noticed an immediate drop in mood after a few days without so now regularly take 800mg/day. Make sure you take it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning, otherwise it is not as effective. Also, if you take it later in the day, it will keep you awake all night.

I happily bought this for a few years as I and my family need a lot of zinc picolinate for pyrolle disorder and high copper. However, it is no longer allowed into Australia for some pathetic reason so had to switch to Thorne 30mg capsules. This is not NOW's fault but very disappointing which is why I have given 1 star. Thorne is better quality but costs much more. Oh well.. you win some, you lose some... UPDATE: Shipping again - YIPPEE!!

I decided to give this a try just in case as some people really rave about it. But it is not mentioned by Dr D'Adamo for blood type A as being particularly good and I found this to be true. Did nothing at all for me. However, if you're blood type O, its apparently a wonderful adaptogen. Next time I'll try Siberian Ginseng which is recommended for A's.

Using this as part of a pyroluria protocol. Great price, supplement size, and quality product.
