    • This product has been a life changer! I’d read reviews and thought what do i have to lose. I still have the odd bad day but stick with them.

    • I took 1/4 capsule for a nausea/diarrhoea bug. I was feeling much better today (day 3 of the bug) and took this around midday. Well approx 10 hours later I'm feeling worse that day one, sat by the loo expecting the worst. Certainly not for everyone.
