Have not been taking these for very long, but so far so good.
Good service, quick delivery, no problems when ordering from the site
Very disappointed to find so many bulking powders.
Very disappointed, I thought your products were pure and have binned them. Your attractive packaging is deceiving!
Together with cranberry it appears to be working, which means I shall soon have to buy some more.
Seems to be the right product, no messy juices.
Trying a higher dose found this.
I was taking a lower strength pomegranate extract. I did a bit more research and discovered you do need a higher strength. I am in heart failure I can’t take statins and my lipid consultant wants me to get my cholesterol lower. It’s not sky high they said if I hadn’t had the second heart attack it’s in the normal range. Early days but I am hopeful. I do take prescription medication for my condition just have really bad reaction to statins. Good product and reasonable price delivery good also. Shall be ordering more this week. Many Thanks
