I used almost 2 4 oz bottles of this on my kids throughout 2 colds. I will have to say I have 1 child with asthma, and 1 child that a lot of times gets the croup. The herbs controlled the colds, I gave no nebulizer treatments at all to my children. I used this with Herbal Respiratory from Mountain Meadow Herbs. I recommend giving this to a child for AT LEAST 10 days at the highest recommended dosage for lbs on the bottle. Also, I think the effectivness for colds is enchanced when you add a respiratory support with it for 10 days. Easy to administer, and my almost 2 year old begs for more!

My son is doing Abeka K4 program, and he was getting along pretty good, until he stopped taking the Attentive child! Then he started not remembering what the vowels said! Back on Attentive child, he is one smart little boy! Not perfect, but a measurable difference! He is starting to read blends now. He also takes Omega 3 Mood, and the plan is 1 gelcap one day, then 2 gelcaps the next day! Really helps with learning difficulties!!!!!!!!!!!

I am taking double the dose of these...8 vcaps a day. I researched the ingredients, and the doses of taking twice the recommended amount for NOW special two was close or even under the amounts of vitamins in high quality formulas like Super Nutrition Optipack or SuperNutrition 6 tablets per day vitamins. These are definatly cheaper than SuperNutrition, and has lots of good Superfoods. By taking 8 per day, you get 1700 mg Superfoods, B complex 100, and almost 20,000 mg beta-carotene. 800 mg Vitamin D and 400 mg Vitamin E are good doses for heart/mood health

I have 3 of my children on this. My 5 year old 3/4 tablet, My 7 year old 1 tablet, my 8 year old 1 tablet. My 7 and 8 year olds are both a grade ahead in a challenging curriculem (Abeka). My 5 year old is a little slower in speech and possibly learning, Bacopa helps with speech, learning rates, ect. He is only getting around 3/4 of a tablet. 6 weeks on, 1 week off.

I have had gestational diabetes three times and I have had pre-diabetes, and PCOS. I read how wonderful this is for your blood sugar, for preventing birth defects, for energy, for pregnancy, for preventing gestational diabetes. IT also helps Type II diabetes. This product was tested in a clinical study taking 2 a day and within 6 MONTHS the blood sugar and A1C levels were near-normal levels. Notice I said 6 months. It works slowly and surely. Dont give up too soon. According to Chris Barr, Taking 3 Tablets of these is the best....One tablet 3 x a day.... He also told me how wonderful this is for pregnancy! At least 3 a day and up to 4 or more per day during pregnancy~

This stuff really works. For the last year or less, I have been having some issues with my heart rate. It would go down in the 40s and 50s and my normal was at least 60 in the past. My pulse was weak, where you had to push on my wrist to get it. Fast forward, I have been on this over a week now. When I first started it I ACTUALLY ABOUT ***CRAVED*** The stuff! Seriously! Alot of reviews for this said poeple didnt care for the stuff. But I knew in my heart that If I liked the taste and almost craved it, that my body needed something in this powder! I also used to have constipation, where sometimes I wouldnt go for 3 days. Well the last two days I have went to the bathroom 3 or more times a day! Finally my digestive system is working! My heart rate has returned to above 60 most of the time and is now 60 or above when I am resting! Wow! we are talking about a 10-20 point raise from it being way too low! My well being has increased also. I have pretty bad Psorasis behind my ears, and on one hand. I started noticing after starting Perfect Food that I was getting circular patches in the Psorasis that was looking more like normal skin peeking through! It is starting to dry up now, so hopefully it might go away completly! My Pulse also has more strength to the beat, and even my husband who is an EMT can tell that my pulse is stronger than it used to be! I have a history of Pre-diabetes and Gestational Diabetes 3x and also PCOS and obesity. I had lost around 46 lbs from over a year ago, but I was struggling to keep it off. Amazingly enough even with overeating and eating more than I should my wieght is staying steady or even losing sometimes! This stuff must have increased my Metabolism! I just had the feeling in me that something was "offf in my body but I didnt know what. My Chiropractor said my thyroid didnt muscle test very good, so I knew something was going on. Perfect food contains Ionic Trace Minerals and Sea foods like Kelp! Which supports the Thyroid! All these positive effects and This stuff is FOOD! I am hoping possibly to get pregnant in a year and a half or so God Willing. I am thinking taking Perfect Food throughout a pregnancy could make a very healthy placenta, keep blood sugars balanced and make one healthy baby! Yay for Perfect Food!

My 5 year old son has been on this for a few days now, and I can tell a difference! He is more calm and collected! Dr Mercola recommends 1 tsp per 50 lbs of body wieght for children and adults. I give my son 1 tsp of this, he is around 50 lbs. Amazing, I dont think he should go off of fish oil for a long long time! Its easier to be patient with him when he's a bit more calm and normal acting!

I had been testing my blood sugar and it had been around 139- 140 1 hour post meal. Tonite I did a test, and took the 1 scoop PGX about 50 minutes before eating my meal. I ate a huge meal with lots of carbs, ect. My blood sugar should have been High. IT was LOW!!! IT WAS ONLY 94!!! 1 hour POST MEAL WAS 94!!! SIMPLY AMAZING!!! That means that PGX lowered my blood sugar 33%. IF that isnt a replacement for Metformin, I dont know what is. This is powerful stuff!!! I read that taking PGX with Probiotics will help with the bowel side effects, too!
