My very experienced fibro doctor recommended using Mg-malate to help reduce muscle pain. It has been a life-saver for me, and does a lot to reduce muscle soreness and cramping. These Source Natural capsules are a great size, allowing me to spread my dose over the day. They're not full of unnecessary fillers, which makes them much easier on the stomach than most others. I'm approaching the decade mark on living with fibro, and I highly recommend these.
I started needing L-Lysine when I had to give up milk. I've tried many, but this one is just right. Good size, no unnecessary junk in it. Being a "walking alert system" for food impurities and additives is no fun. I really appreciate the purity of NOW foods products!
Great for warm climates
I live in Southern AZ and used to buy acidophilus that needed refrigeration. What a pain! I started using the NOW foods stabilized acidophilus when I had a chance to go to Egypt a couple of summers ago. They survived the trip with flying colors without losing potency. Now I buy them all the time, because they're easy to carry with me. The heat can be tough on many meds, but these stand up to it.
Great "low-level" vitamin

This is a great multivitamin to take if you want an easy, digestible "base" for every day. I chose it because it has a good distribution of vits and mins without over-doing it. It's a good complement to the certain vitamins that I want to supplement more aggressively.
I've been using it for years
This is my tried and true mood booster and sleep aid for fibromyalgia. It can't take away the pain, but it can help you cope, and it helps make sleep a little easier.
Very good product
I use this as a mild antihistamine. It works very well, with no side effects that I have every experienced. highly recommended.
Great way to get omega oils
I've been using this for about a year now. It's a good way to get your omega oils without dealing with "fish gas" or similar side effects. The capsules will stick together easily (hence 4 stars), so watch your storage conditions! I've also been warned to cut back on this as a possible contributor to nosebleeds (thin blood) so check with your care provider/health adviser for dosage.
Great size, fewer fillers
I love these because they are a great size for a little cardiovascular support without being overwhelming, and the purity is easy on the stomach.

I've been using these capsules for over a year now to help with digestion, etc. They are a wonderfully stable product, consistent, and they always work for me--even on my trip to Egypt in the summer! I highly recommend them, especially for people who can't store their "good bugs" at a constant temperature.
Too much of a good thing.
I like this product but find that the size is just a little too much for me. The contents are wonderful, but it's hard to swallow and 1200 mg at a time upsets my tummy! However, unlike other Omega combo's, this one gives absolutely zero undesired burpiness. (And I have an extra-sensitive tummy, so it probably won't bother most people.)
