EDS practioner said it was a probiotic I needed. I use lots of probiotics, and this is just one, and switch around to keep flora up during a long course of switching types of antibiotics treating tickborne illnesses. I would not rely on only one product in any case. So I cannot tell what this does in particular...no way I am going to let levels and variety of probiotics get low to find out! Please folks protect yourself from tickbites! and if you do get bitten please remove it properly and have it tested. Tick can be tested more reliably than humans for tickborne illnesses. If you suspect tickborne illness, run do not walk to a lyme literate doc or naturopath to effectively rule out lyme and co infections. This is my experience--and that of many many others-- not medical advice. I have been bitten twice and got multiple infections each time...4 years of recovery. Believe it. ticks are in each state and so are tickborne infections. Early proper intervention makes a huge difference. End of soapbox.

I use these herbs to help reduce nerve inflammation...doctors' recommendations. I just pick whatever is the best price point.
been taking for several years as part of an overall protocol for wellness and recovery from multiple chronic infections. I might sometimes forget to take my many other supplements but I rarely forget to take this.I can feel the difference. Good price here...and waaaay cheaper than at the practioner.

I am a value shopper and so far this is the most for the buck combined with iHerb'com deals on shipping. I take 5HTP as an important part of an overall protocol for late-diseminated lyme and bartonella which effects central nervous system. I take it before bed and it helps moderate sleep.
I have skin reactions related to tickborne illness and this works to keep scalp healthy. I respond well to tea tree oil. But close your eyes as it can be stingy. Other well known shampoos which do the same thing are considered very toxic. I stumbled upon it elsewhere in a brick and mortar and was glad to find it here! Definitely will be a repeat customer.
I was looking for something to assist with an overall skin detox program of my own. I like the effect of the charcoal to help absorb toxins and the texture for refreshing skin cells. So far I will likely repeat purchase of this bar. It is black due to the charcoal I presume and has a pleasing scent in the shower area.
Am on mega doses antibiotic and this product along with a strict diet keeps my gut healthy.
first time with this product and I am very impressed.
