Bought this for my husband who had continuous symptoms which mimic cold/flu that wouldn't go away. Turned out he is allergic to Vitamin C (the synthetic forms) which is what this product contains. So he has to stop taking it, thus we can't fully assess the efficacy of this product. Four stars 'coz the ingredients seem really good. I'll be taking it the next time I feel unwell, and we'll see how well it works. [A note on Vitamin C sensitivity (kindly forgive the lengthy story, but I feel it's important for people to know): My husband has had severe sneezing and runny nose all his life for as long as he can remember. We always thought Vitamin C would help, so he always took a lot of it (4-6gr.) daily, and yet his symptoms never went away. Then, for some reason he forgot his Vit. C regimen for one whole week, and then only he realized that his sneezing and runny nose was greatly reduced to almost nothing. I've heard a similar case before from a friend about her husband and daughter, but I thought she must've concluded wrongly, until I saw it myself on my husband. Sorry, I know I went off topic, but if any of you are taking daily Vit. C supplement and still have flu/cold symptoms that won't go away, try giving up Vit. C and see if you feel better. Thanks for reading.]

I think the ingredients are interesting; rather different from the usual supplement. It has a strong egg yolk smell and mixes easily in wet food. I have not supplemented my cats long enough to notice any difference in them (they are as healthy, active and playful as before), but I have to comment that this somehow gives them soft stools. I can't even give 2 scoops as recommended. The male one could only take 1 scoop and the female one gets half a scoop; more than that and they'd get LOOSE stools. It's been a week and she hasn't seemed to get adjusted to this. My overweight female cat takes this without objection (the way she pretty much eats anything edible), but my male cat hates this in his wet food. I'm keeping this refrigerated; with only one cat getting only half scoop a day, this bottle will last some time. But I won't get this again next time 'coz my male one won't eat it. I need something that they'll both take, & more importantly something that doesn't add to the smell and the mess in the litter-box.
For my family, this is better than Now G8-Dophillus. Couldn't feel much improvement with Now, but 2 caps of this will take care of gas, bloating & indigestion in a short time. We've always been regular so not sure if this improves our bowel movements. Good price. I'm glad they're honest to recommend refrigeration for product potency.
My husband was very prone to have sore throats (about twice a month), which would then develop into flu. I saw this product on iHerb and thought I'd try it. It really works!! My husband takes one every night before he sleeps, and he hasn't had a sore throat, or cold, or flu since he started taking it. Just once every night. My complaints are: 1) Very, very important- NOW Foods, pls improve the texture of the lozenge! My goodness, the lozenges are SO ROUGH it's like RUBBING SANDPAPER all over your mouth!! My husband has to endure it 'coz it works for his sore throat, but I have to give it up 'coz it severely irritates the ceiling of my mouth. 2) NOW Foods, you can improve the taste too. It's edible, but not palatable, at all. [iHerb, appreciate your Super Special Price!]
Thank you, iHerb for this free gift. I mixed this into my protein shake, expected citrus-y taste but there was none. So maybe good mixed with a variety of drinks. I've only tried one packet so can't tell its efficacy. Ingredients seem really wholesome but the big pack is expensive and I think I can get other good Vit.C products at much less.
The formula seems really good and it's quite reasonably priced. Bought it for my family of three, but we have not noticed the stamina and energy that other users reported. Would really love to see that effect! It could probably be due to the fact that we're not taking 4caps a day and neither are we taking them regularly. With 3 adults taking 4caps a day, it means the bottle will only last for 20 days, and that would be too burdensome financially. It's still a complete Multi. that I may buy again. I'm still looking for that One-A-Day Multi. that fits my pocket. :)
Really hoping this would work coz it's all natural, but it didn't! My husband has dust allergy that causes wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness. This product says it gives fast relief from all those. My husband has been trying it every night for 3 months without success. He tried increasing the dose, still ended up having to use his inhaler. Two stars 'coz I like a natural alternative and this may be suitable for someone else. Won't buy again.

Thank you, iHerb for the free gift. I didn't enjoy the taste; mixed one packet into 500ml of chocolate protein drink and it tasted kinda sour-ish. Ingredients seem really wholesome but the big pack is expensive and I don't see the need to purchase this now.
