This is a great source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid. I take 500 mg twice a day. This also nourishes skin and hair from within. I have not experienced any side effects and I am very sensitive to such things.
If necessity is the mother of invention, desperation is the mother of experimentation. I have tried innumerable strong prescription and OTC remedies to conquer reflux. iHerb was the first place I saw this product and I am glad I tried it. Two tablets with an acidic beverage or food and for the first time in years, I am experiencing real relief. I find it best to take them after a few bites or sips, rather than prior to eating or drinking a beverage. Be sure to drink plenty of water and increase your fiber intake, or you may experience constipation. I use these in conjunction with Slippery Elm and Marshmallow Root or DGL, which help heal the stomach and esophagus lining. Prelief is giving the herbs a chance to work better, I feel.
I use DGL instead of Tums or other antacids. It not only helps sooth the stomach and digestion process, but is a great healing agent. I have read that these are not as effective after eating, but there have been times when I felt discomfort an hour or so after a meal and taking DGL put out the fire. So, I chew one when I need it.
The price is affordable but the potency could be higher. I take two at a time but I still think it should be higher. With all the environmental and nutritional pollutants our bodies need to purge, we need to be mindful of what can combat the poisons. I'd like to see higher potency products in affordable price ranges.
I like to take Papaya after meals to aid digestion, and find these useful especially after heavy meals. These taste a little like baby aspirin to me.
My family was hit hard and early this year with flu and cold viruses. This product has put a stop to that, and we plan to take it for the duration of the cold and flu season. Gaia products are powerful and worth the cost, as they pack a lot into each capsule, equivalent to thousands of mgs of crude herb. When you need something potent and fast, this is the way to go. No side effects experienced. We are satisfied, as always with this brand.
Everyone in my family takes this and we all agree with the results. Keeps us healthy and digestive processes balanced. We have tried many other brands and formulas and this is the best we have found. Reliable and balanced.
I was pleasantly surprised. These have a good taste and texture and are filling without causing digestion problems. Helps curb hunger all day long while balancing carb vs protein intake. Can't find anything that compares in the stores for the same price. These are also handy snacks if you want to cut the bar in chunks and munch throughout the day.
If you have no medical restrictions regarding soy use, take these. This soy is not genetically modified to give you cancer the way most soy products are designed.
I take ginger before flying and it works better for me than Dramamine or any other anti-nausea product. This is a keeper in our home for stomach upset and for general immune help, especially in wintertime. Its antiviral properties and natural pain-killing components make it invaluable when colds or flu are lurking.
