doesn't dissolve completely

This did give me some mild energy and I really liked the ingredients. I first tried it in plain room temperature water. Did not dissolve at all and you get that grit in your throat that makes you cough. I'm not into putting it into smoothies, I don't have time for all that. I decided to try very warm water, and that worked much better, it dissolved most of the product and tasted fine (with a few drops of stevia added), plus the warmth was nice in the morning. At the end of my cup, though, was about an 1/8 of product that was not going to dissolve, no matter what. If the grains were processed finer, more powdery, perhaps that would work better. Probably too expensive. At any rate, I will finish the jar. Not sure if I will buy again, will see how long term effects are for me.

These taste ok. They are good for on the road and you need a protein fix. They are "wet-ish" inside the wrapper, and the cranberry part is squishy in your mouth. This taste is pretty unremarkable. They are pricey too, and I will probably not buy them again.
they were out of the concentrated..

they were out of the concentrated ones so i bought these (for serotonin/mood). Actually worked better! Will get these from now on.

Had been wanting to try 5 HTP after reading about it in Scientific American, how it was so great for jet lag....though they did their tests using a sublingual 5 HTP, so that's what we wanted...harder to find! We travel a lot and after reading that, we decided to test it out. Eureka! It works like a dream for jet lag. (We also use homeopathic no jet lag, too). It goes under your tongue and sort of dissolves with a bit of chalky peppermint flavor. Easy peasy. It's other nice use is taking the edge off a stressful day for me. I just love this. Everyone is buying the capsules with extra additives, they are missing the boat on this one!

I like Astaxanthin and was using the NOW brand but am trying to get away from grains, and that brand has rice flour in it. So using this one now and it is just as good.

In the Bahamas, there is good Neem. When I visited there I tried the skin creams and the supplements. They said one of things Neem does is seems to influence Serotonin uptake. So I tried the caps and wow, did my mood improve! Out of the Bahamas, you can't get that particular Neem (without paying mucho buckos), so I tried this concentrated form. Seems to do the same thing, just not so dramatically. Because it's so expensive, not sure if I will continue with it or not. Times are rough. Must cut down.
Good for menopause

Helps with energy and hot flashes. Nourishing for us old ladies. :)
don't like the smell

I don't like the smell of this. they put something sweet smelling to cover up the astringent smell of Neem, I think. The combo is a vanilla-cookie smell with earth behind it. And it doesn't go away. Ugh. Waste of money.

Tried Krill because the fish oil Omegas were making me feel queasy, plus i was just not noticing the benefits others marvel at. But this Krill is great! And the Astaxathin in it too is an added benefit. I have noticed the energy and good mood with this as well. Will keep using.

Tribulus is good for men, but also good for women during menopause. See for yourself.
