To be honest, I purchased this product more for the dental reason. I don't think xylitol water is as helpful as chewing a xylitol gum. Granted, it doesn't leave that unpleasant aftertaste like sugar, but I don't think it did anything for my teeth ( theyonly looked worse so I eventually had to stop drinking xylitol water). My biggest mistake was brushing teeth with soap and then rinsing with xylitol water as mouthwash (I thought that would help replenishing the enamel as well as deeper layer) - which I highly do not recommend. Another thing I didn't like about this product (it must have been mentioned on the product detail page of this product) is that it has been derived from corn.
I've bought this to use as an egg replacement in baking and cooking, and I was told that I'd have to leave it for 20 minutes before it becomes thick enough consistency to be used. Well, it became thick almost immediately after I started stirring. Will purchase again - in bigger quantity next time!
I had experienced low energy, dizziness, fatigue that seemed to have caused by anaemia, and this product was very helpful - I almost felt better even before finishing half of the bottle. I see that they have tried hard to disguise the funny taste - it still tastes and smells metallic underneath the fruity flavor.
I have bought whole leaf juice from the same brand, and it tasted horrendous - not the taste I remember from fresh cut aloe vera gel. So this time, I have made sure that I am purchasing "inner filet" gel. Well, this product does have more viscosity, yet I don't see the much difference in taste from whole leaf juice. I wonder if it's due to the acids they have used as preservative. I gave it two stars because even though it tastes horrendous, I think the product still may have therapeutic benefits.
I won't talk about the benefits of EPO because I'm sure the buyers who are searching for this product are already aware of it. It does what an EPO is supposed to do, and the price is pretty good. Good choice for an EPO supplement.
During the winter, my skin gets extremely dry and I have tried everything from oils to heavy creams and masks. This product does work for various purposes and is very moisturizing for extremely dry skin. No matter how moisturizing a lotion/cream is, usually my skin is sucked dry within 30 minutes to one hour - when I put Egyptian Magic at night, my skin is moisturized until the next morning. Also makes a very good primer under sunscreen/foundation for dry skin. The downside is the texture - it does remain kind of greasy and sticky on the skin for a while, but I personally don't mind it because this product only used ingredients that are safe to be ingested and it keeps my skin moisturized for hours so I was happy with it.

The cap of the packaging arrived broken. Product is more thick, goo like than liquid-y. Broken packaging gave me problem with storage.
I'm not a believer in the wonder effects of xylitol on teeth and blood sugar - after a personal horrendous experience. However, I think Xylitol is so much better than sugar, aspartame, sorbitol and other artificial sweetners, and in that sense I'm quite satisfied with this product though it doesn't state where the xylitol of the product comes from - hopefully it's from Finnish birch.
This product tastes great and is full of protein without GMO. I like using this product to taste soups and various dishes. The only thing I didn't like was that it leaked in the packaging.

I bought this product because I have purchased products from Now Foods before and they were good quality. The smell was weaker than what I was used to from the essential oils from other brands. On the bottle, it says its pure, natural and is a "lavender oil", but itdoesn't clearly states that this product is an essential oil. It also doesn't talk about where the lavender was grown and processed. I'd still buy other products from this brand, but I'm not sure if I'd be purchasing essential oils from Now Foods again.
