I'm a 35 year old female. I used to eat horribly and not take very good care of myself. I changed all that after an accident when I was 30. I have made huge changes to my diet and lifestyle. I went from not recovering and getting worse after that wreck to thriving better than before. Natural, holistic diets/supplements and lifestyle are the way to go!
Good taste, aroma and color. Will STAIN! I recommend placing newspaper on the table when capsuling or using. Wipe up immediately!!! I use it for inflamation and liver detox. A friend of mine became addicted to it and had to back off when he started having a golden tan look from eating so much of it. I introduced this to a family member who injured her back. She has gone off pain medications and now uses this product. She took 1 tea spoon a day with a meal. I mix it with applesause and she puts in in a little water. She is now on a maintenance dose of every other day. DO NOT just put some in your mouth. It will cause choking since it is a dry powder.

My doctor advised me to take this after she discovered I had problems with parasites. She said it is easy to get parasites from small children and pets. I work with kids and have a dog. I noticed my dog started licking her (sorry gross) anus a lot. I bought 4 bottles. Took 2 capsules in morning and evening (4 daily) - so did dog until we each finished our bottle. I felt lethargic at first. Doctor said it was because of the dying off of the parasites that were circulating through my body. I felt better after day 3. I have more energy. My dog does not lick her rear quarters any more. It is not advised to take this constantly. I do not know why but it says this on the bottle. I plan to take it for two weeks every 4 months for parasite maintenance. I will also put dog in maintenance dosage. VERY SATISFIED!

Wow!! This product has truly changed my life. I always thought that I had too much stomach acid but after getting tested, I discovered that I actually had very little stomach acid. I started taking this and it has made a world of difference in my digestion. I don't hurt after eating anymore. I take two capsules with my first bite. I even gave it to my 10-year old. He doesn't always chew his food then later tells me his stomach hurts. This rarely occurs now. If I know that I am going to eat something that will be difficult to digest, I take three instead of my usual two capsules. No digestive problems have occurred with this natural remedy. By taking this in capsule form, it doesn't erode the enamel of our teeth which is a side affect of taking the liquid form in water.

I was buying $11 bottles of hypo-allergenic shampoo from veterinarian - and it didn't work well! I am so HAPPY that I discovered this product. This soap suds/lathers well, does not have an overpowering scent and leaves my dog's coat shiny and soft. I waited about a week after washing my 3 dogs to do this review and my dogs have not broken out and they are not itching/scratching. I definitely recommend! There are no chemicals - just natural ingredients that will be gentle on your dog and your hands.
Unrefined is better than refined. There is a little coconut taste, but it doesn't interfere with cooking. Also good for weight loss. I just take a 1/2 tablespoon with meals two times a day. Many times the coconut oil is in a solid state. Id so, I just take a spoonful in my mouth and move it around for a few seconds for my mouth to melt it. Coconut oil is better than olive oil when cooking. Olive oil breaks down with heat. Coconut oil doesn't. However, you cannot use coconut oil in cold dishes as it turns to a solid so olive oil would be a better choice in cold meals. I also use coconut oil for oil pulling. My teeth have great color as a result. I had people tell me that my teeth look so clean and white!

I had SEVERE adrenal fatigue. I was so tired/stressed that I couldn&#39;t make it through the day at work without sleeping in my car during my breaks and lunch times. I took four capsules three times a day. After about a month I saw results and I now take it on a maintenance schedule which is two capsules once a week. I tried many products to no avail until I found this one.

I had a bout with insomnia that prescription medications couldn't help. I took Ambien and "woke up" outside looking for rabbits in the bushes at 3:00 in the morning. Lunesta had me staring at the ceiling. Definitely take an hour before bed. Won't knock you out, but will calm the mind to sleep without hangover in the morning. I'm trying the powered kind next because it is pure...BUT LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

I believe taking resveratrol in the morning and after a heard workout is good for the body. Wish is did not contain magnesium stearate, which is used to stop product from sticking to machinery during processing.

This product is good for minor skin problems. I however bought it for a removal of a mole. It was not strong enough. I had to go online and get a more powerful black salve. However, it seems to work for it's stated purpose.
Great taste, color and aroma. I use this to help with digestion and motion sickness. I used to get car sick all the time. I now take this and do not suffer from car rides any more. I sometimes put about a teapsoon in a 16 oz bottle of water and sip it. I have best results if I take a little bit of ginger 20 minutes before traveling. I also capsule it and take it with meals for general health. I have a capsule device that helps capsule the pills. Organic ginger is difficult to find here in Florida so I use this instead of the actual root when I am juicing. It is important to get organic ginger since it is a root. I also put it in smoothies and shakes.
