Love that it doesn't have a lot of additives or fillers. High quality and cost effective. In terms of the negative reviews about the flush - if you haven't taken a lot of niacin before, definitely work up to this dose - I didn't but then I personally think there are benefits to the flush. But it can be disconcerting the first time. I find the flush is less if I take it with vitamin C.
I love having vitamin C and magnesium together. My favorite form of non-acidic vitamin C. Powder is more cost effective than capsules/tablets and is a great way to avoid fillers. Taste is ok.

I've tried several cheap brands of fish oil taken at doses to get 1000mg EPA and another expensive specialty brand with high EPA content and this brand seems to be the most effective. I definitely noticed a difference compared to how I felt while taking others which makes it worth the extra money for me. Also there's no gross fishy taste which is a plus. The orange flavor isn't bad (usually I hate orange but this is ok.) I take two a day to get the dose recommended by my MD.

Both my cats love these. One even broke into a closed package to get to them. It seems to really work too. No hairballs this fall except for one after I was away for a week and the cats did not get any. Just wish it were less expensive. Offering a larger package would make sense as 1 package only lasts around 10 days.

Only source of non soy lecithin I can find. Wish it were available in powder form instead of just capsules though.
Not quite sure why they call themselves the first GMO free vitamin E when all of Carlson's Vitamin E products are GMO free. I found these to be quite expensive and possibly less effective than another brand which is also 100% natural, GMO free, albeit containing a slightly different blend of the 8 components of the Vitamin E complex. Ultimately why pay 3X the amount with no clear benefit. Other than that these are fine.

I think it tastes good. It does taste better in (vanilla) hempmilk than water but it is definitely ok in water. I tried the other reviewers suggestion about mixing it with capra greens - BLECH! (I couldn't even drink the the whole thing - yuck. To each their own. :) ) However it does mix well with Mt capra whey, chia seeds, +/- garden of life raw protein powder in hemp milk. I've only had it plain in water. For those who don't have a shaker I find stirring a little and letting it sit a while before stirring again helps. It stirs better than the whey. I've even gotten it to work in a little styrofoam coffee cup.
Switched from another natural vitamin E complex to this one and am very happy with price and quality. Definitely recommended.

Nice spicy kick. Ordered it on a whim, but really like it. Can see this being my favorite tea.
Great value for USP grade vitamin C. It doesn't taste bad and dissolves pretty well, although I ended up putting some in capsules which are easier for me to use. Highly recommended.
