Not too big, not too smelly and much easier to take than the liquid. Doesnt repeat on you or make your skin smell like garlic. Hopefully it is doing my cholesterol soom good.

I have bad allergies but instead of getting a runny nose, I get a blocked nose and bad post nasal drip. This lets my nose unblock so I can blow it and clear it and loosens the mucus at the back of the throat so it is easier to spit out. Sounds gross but its a big improvement on constant upper respiratory irritation and rattling when breathing.
My complaint about this is that it is quite a coarse grind. This is about twice the grind size of stuff sold in our local supermarket so when you are a diabetic like me and only use substitute flours, this is less optimal for baking (baked goods are noticeably grainy)

My son has ADHD and has recently had a few seizures whilst playing computer games. After investigation they concluded that being on ritalin has lowered his threshold for having seizures although he is probably not an epileptic per se. he hadnt had any for a while so i forgot about them. I thought I'd give him this to help with his concentration and within 12 hours he had a seizure without any obvious reason/stimulus. Have discontined the Mindcare and no repeat so far. I was probably dumb not to realise the implications beforehand. Having said all that, my husband had a heavy dose of chemo a few years back and ever since has sufferred from brain fuzz and poor memory. He has been taking mindcare and says he notices a definite sharpening of his cognitive processing a few hours after taking it.

I have had unexplained bad sinuses and post nasal drip for years and had really hoped this would make a difference. I have only been using it for 2 weeks and there probably has been some effect but it is marginal. Too early to say whether it has a protective effect over colds and sinus infections.

I sweat a lot and my perspiration smells reasonably strong. If I shower twice a day and apply this 2 - 3 times a day it works but otherwise it is not strong enough. Having said that it is a great masculine spicey, hoppy smell which both my husband and I like a lot. He doesnt have a perspiration problem and finds it works well applied once a day, after a daily shower. So no good if you need a very strong antiperspirant/deodorant but great if you are normal and want a very pleasant natural product.

It may be that this stuff doesnt work outside of the US (maybe the pollen is different here) or that it takes a while to build up but I am 1/2 way through the bottle, having used it for a week+ and I cant say I have noticed any let up in symptoms whatsoever.

I dont know yet whether it helps with the keratosis/rough skin yet as it is too soon to say but it certainly feels nice. I have tried many of the soaps on iherb and have yet to come across a bad one from Nubian Heritage. The scents are always lovely but not too strong, lather good but not excessive all in a nice bigger bar.
Seems expensive but very good taste and quality and I am hoping its having a positive effect on my BP
