An even better source of fiber than protein!
Posted by Reviewer3231842 on Dec 10, 2008
This product is pretty great. It is a wonderful source of fiber, protein, and omegas, and not much else, which makes it a wonder-superfood. But, it is a bit expensive, difficult to mix, and doesn't have the best flavor (it is sweet-ish, but grainy). If you are putting it in a smoothy, I'm sure it would be fine, but if you are stirring it in a glass of soymilk, for instance, you may not enjoy drinking the result.
it really works!

One of the very few supplements that actually has a noticeable effect (it is even proven by studies). I come up with good ideas at work meetings and think on my feet well all day. This is a must have if your job requires lots of thought, decision-making, and/or creativity. Affordable too! And the tablets are small and easy to swallow. An all around win.
can feel it

it actually makes me "feel" smarter
a favorite of mine, the keystone of my regimin for years

This has so much stuff in it, it's practically all you need (in a pinch, sometimes it is all I take). I usually just add Fish Oil, extra Vit D, and a few other specific things. Without this, I would have to take dozens of pills. I have been taking this product for years and love it.

These are simply great. Gelatin free (because they are tablets) although a little big, so if you have trouble swallowing big pills, might be a problem (these are almost as big as my multi!). Just today in the news there is a study with broccoli sprouts preventing digestive cancers in humans. These are so much easier than eating pounds of raw broccoli sprouts every day. Thanks Source Naturals for another great product!
The only Valerian I've found without the smell

Valerian has got to be the worst smelling of the commonly used herbs, but it is great for sleep, relaxation, muscle pain, and muscle relaxation. Nature's Way, with it's unique double coating, has successfully created a Valerian supplement that has no discernible odor. My Multi smells worse than these. I'm impressed. If you like the effects of Valerian, but can't stand the odor, this is the pill for you.
don't get sick in the first place

Although the smell is indeed horrible, as many have noted, this stuff works wonders. A tablet a day will protect you from getting sick in the first place, and if you do feel something coming on, taking 3 twice a day should end it quickly. Excellent stuff for avoiding the cold/flu.
essential start of my daily routine

this really gets my day off to the correct start. this is even better than similar products from the same manufacturer, IMHO. it does produce a slight niacin flush though, so be aware of that. (the other products: blast, fast blast, etc. do not produce a niacin flush in me). essentially, this is similar to Blast etc. (which in turn is somewhat similar to red bull kinda) except that in addition to the ingredients in Blast, there is also Choline. for some reason, the small changes make a big difference here... at least for me. i am not a morning person, but this stuff gets me going right away and keeps me going all day. quite simply, i don't know what i would do without this stuff.
A life saver, excellent

I watch all my co-workers complain of lack of energy and foggy-headedness, while I quietly think how great I feel. This product is truly amazing. I was taking the capsule version for convenience, but switched to this powder because the caps aren't vcaps. Anyway, as a bonus, the powder works better and faster. I simply mix it with water immediately upon drinking, and *as soon as it touches my tongue* I immediately begin to feel the difference. The morning grog lifts, energy springs forth to my body and mind... it's simply fantastic. No jitters, no crash. Just clean, smooth, long lasting energy. Nothing gets me through a workday better than this stuff. It is worth every penny. The taste isn't too great, but it both tastes and works better than alternatives (Red Bull, 5-hour energy, etc) and it clearly lists in ingredients. Anyway, check this out if you haven't.
great product with a secret bonus! tumeric too!

This is a cheap and potent source of the powerful liver protectant/rejuvenant, Milk Thistle. I use this for when I'm drinking. As a fnatastic added bonus, it includes even more Tumeric than milk thistle, and tumeric is one of the most potent anti-carcinogens known. Another great value from NOW.
