I found this product extremely effective for cleansing my body of parasites! It is very strong and for some people might be a bit too much, especially if you have a history of candida. I think it is wise to use caution when deciding to use it. I did a full course (the whole bottle) then had a colonic and then found myself in bed EXTREMELY sick from detox. I did find though that when using the product I had the clearest thoughts of my entire life- it felt like a fog had lifted off of my brain. I felt my digestion was a lot better. I felt so much more energy than I've ever had. It really felt like I had gotten rid of these things that were sucking at my energy. I have not since done another course as I felt it was too harsh for my body. I have since started using other Healthforce products like the Liver Rescue and the Intestinal Movement Formula and have found them extremely effective and a lot gentler. I also am able to use them on a continual basis and reap the benefits while maintaining my everyday life.
I love this product. I found it to be effective in improving the quality of my skin, hair and nails. Also I was taking it for bone health and found it to really improve my scoliosis (curving of the mid spine). I would recommend taking this for bone health over calcium as the research is proving that calcium does nothing to build bones (magnesium, silica, sulphur and phosphorus do). Also the calcium taken in through supplements actually does damage to your body and stick to bones and glands like barnacles on a ships hull, forming a shell around itself and causing all sorts of arthritic problems etc. This is an organic silica product and of very high quality.
I used this product for about a year. I liked it a lot at the time. It really did improve my energy levels and my mood and it is quite a natural product with added herbs etc. I found out that I had a malfunction with my B12 levels though even after taking it for a year. After research I have discovered that taking the cyanocobalamin form of vitamin B12 is actually quite damaging to the body. The body needs the form of B12 called methylcobalamin. If presented with cyanocobalamin it has to work extra hard to convert it into the usuable form (methylcobalamin) so that it can be properly absorbed and utilised. This whole process of conversion actually uses up the body's methyl groups to perform. So what ends up happening is that the B12 methyl groups in the body actually DECREASE when taking cyanocobalamin which is in effect saying that your body becomes lower or deficient in B12. I would highly recommend taking a usuable form of B12 and stay away from the cyanocobalamin. I currently use Thorne B Complex which has another form of B12 that is easier to convert (as I still need to take a full b-complex for the moment). However I am also using the Healthy Habits Vitamin B12 patches which are working extremely well. I would highly recommend those!!

This product is EXCELLENT! I highly recommend it. I have had problems with bowel movements for years as I have a chronic candida infection that is present due to mercury poisoning apparently. I have tried so many things including probiotics, fermented foods, colonics etc etc. This product is so amazingly effective for my bowels and candida. It really helps to give my regular bowel movements throughout the day. It keeps things moving and not stagnating. It helps prevent body odour. It helps to clear up toxins in the bowels that lead to skin and hair problems. It also balances blood sugar, supports the liver and helps to improve general wellbeing. It has been so helpful and necessary during my mercury detox and I would highly recommend it to anyone doing a detox and anyone with candida or bowel problems.

This is an excellent quality product. Sometime I don't notice the benefits until I stop taking something. I have run out of these this week and am DEFINITELY noticing the decline in energy! I have been using it for a mercury detox and it really is very effective. It gives so much support to the liver and allows any sluggish feeling to be replaced by one of clean efficiency. Also, in chinese medicine the liver relates to your willpower or yang energy and I can DEFINITELY feel the when taking these my drive and willpower and optimism at getting things done is much higher. I also feel a lot more general energy when taking these. Would highly recommend. But really, all Healthforce products are amazing and have done great things for my health.
I tried this recently after having only tried the Omica Fulvic Acid and trace minerals liquid product. I found it to be extremely effective, much more so than the straight fulvic acid. I think this is because of the ulmic and humic acids in combination with the fulvic acid. It really works fast at detoxifiying the mercury out and improved my thought processes and concentration rapidly. I think this is because it also detoxifies the calcification out of the pineal gland quite fast.
I bought this product to restore jing essence after many years of adrenal burnout (as well as an intense year of mercury detox). I noticed the difference straight away to my core energy levels. I feel a lot stronger on a core level and do not get wiped out like I used to. I feel a lot more resilient and able to cope with changes and stress and I really do feel like I have shielded stress from affecting me on a physical level to some degree. I've improved my 'stress defence shield'. And yes, my hair is looking a lot blacker than usual and I love it!
Highly recommend this!! I was using Culturelle for quite awhile as I couldn't afford this product but I am SO happy I made the switch. The difference is just immediately obvious. I would put this on the top of the list for everyone to take daily as a health supplement. 80% of our immune system is in the gut so taking this daily along with a good amount of fermented foods will help to keep your gut really happy and thus you will feel amazing.
I liked this product and used it for about a year. I found it quite effective from what I had tried before from the health stores in Australia. It seemed to work a lot better. However I started to feel like I had to take 2-4 (usually 4) per day in order to get the effectiveness that it started with . I have since moved on to Culturelle however I am planning to find a product that is much higher quality. I don't really trust the packaging claims on either product as they state the amount of bacteria present at the time of production. They don't guarantee that this amount is alive at the time you ingest the pill. I have since researched and found that a lot, if not most of them die before even reaching your mouth. I am going to switch to fermenting a lot of foods and using a probiotic that has been tested to have a high bacteria count at ingestion when I can afford it.
This is one of those products that once I try it I wonder how I could ever live without it. It's incredible how chaga will effect the body/mind/spirit. It is such an extremely intelligent organism and I just felt it working on such a deep level in my body. And my immune system has improved far beyond what I have ever experienced in my whole life. I would highly recommend it.
