iHerb Customer Reviews

Love this!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Sep 29, 2011 | Verified Purchase

I was taking Green Vibrance but due to cost thought I would try this one. So far so good. I combine this with 1 Tablespoon of liquid chlorophyll in water. I just noticed this has been discontinued!! How unfortunate!

Thanks for your feedback!

lot of value

Posted by iHerb Customer on Sep 19, 2011 | Verified Purchase

probiotics seem to help my digestion. I prefer powders over capsules as you get a lot more "good bugs" for the price

Thanks for your feedback!

Very easy to take

Posted by iHerb Customer on Sep 05, 2011 | Verified Purchase

I find this very easy to take in the mornings. I can't be sure, but I do feel my skin has improved since taking it. I take half a teaspoon in luke warm water first thing. The taste is mild, so no problems there at all :-)

Thanks for your feedback!

Easy to use, great absorption

Posted by sarahjean on Aug 16, 2011 | Verified Purchase

You can really tell it&#39;s being absorbed into the bowel when you go to the toilet :) Great that it doesn&#39;t need refrigeration and contains high quality green powders as well.

Thanks for your feedback!
