If you read up on candida overgrowth issues, this is a great product for systematically killing off candida overgrowth. Their Living Flora is the complementary product to use with this. I suffer from chronic sinusitis and until I started addressing candida overgrowth, my improvement was marginal. Read Sinus Survival by Dr. R Ivker for the best info if you have sinusitis.
Highly suggest getting info available on Dr. Weils web site on this and other supplements. This is one highly reoommended for long term use by young and old.
Helps in many ways
Zyflamed helps my wife with her plantar facitis, and me with sinusitis. We appreciate the PM option for nighttime too.

Packed with great immune system help, but we have to watch how long we take it. We quit at the first sign of gastrointestinal discomfort.
Taste is not an issue, but what is Epicor?

I can say the taste is just fine if you add one packet to about a liter water bottle, which do on hikes, long drives etc. It tastes like an orange drink, just a little sweet and tangy, just fine. I would like to know more about the Epicor ingredients, what history does it have and how effective is it. It sounds good for immunity, but how good and how much should you take over a period of time. More info would be great. I trust Now Foods a great deal, so I continue to purchase this item and look for more info. Reading elsewhere there are product reports of Epicor that suggest that 2x the amount in this formulation are needed to have a good effect, which would imply taking at least 2 packets and getting 2x the dose of Vit C and the rest of the ingredients, which may not be easily tolerated my many. Why didn't Now put 500mg in their packets?
Great product @ low dose
One of the few products with low concentration of vit C @ 125mg/capsule, which makes it versitile for kids and adults and sensitivities. Great quality.
Great mix of Vit E factors
Having researched Vit E supplements, my conclusion is that this complex is superior. You can read the research on Now's site and understand why the ratios they use approximate natural substance ratios of E vitamins. Other experts correctly point out that too much of E vitamins can be potentially harmful. Now's blend is on target for an appropriate concentration, blend and ratios of the E vitamins.
Best bang for the garlic buck

This garlic extract is highly rated in the Sinus Survival program to combat sinus infections, flu and colds. It seems to be recommended by more and more authorities. Garlic compounds are being studied for anti-cancer benefits as well. This will probably end up as recommended as vitamin C is today. Worth the relatively high cost for a high potency extract. Very well tolerated for short term high doses also.
It Works! Nuff said!
Even my MD takes this, and pointed out to me that past processional medical studies showed nearly 50% of those persons taking this blend reported beneficial results with reduced joint aches. The misc. reports that state "there is no evidence" to support the glucosamine/chondroitin benefits for aching joints are inaccurate and represent a disservice to all of us who can attest to it splendid effectiveness.
I take this B-6 50mg supplement with my daily vits, I have read this is a very important supplement to take, and I have tolerated it without problems for years.
