    Very effective for PMS
    Although it doesn't seemed to have cleared up my acne conpletely it has definitely helped a little. What this has really done for me is regular hormones and PMS symptoms. While taking these, my PMS (Moodiness, cramps, back pain, breast tenderness) is almost nothing and it has cut down my bleeding and length of menstruation time. After I ran out I did not re-purchase right away because I didn't have money and PMS returned!! I decided I would buy again and now back to not having synptoms. So long story short, these are very effective and now I know not to ever go without!!

    47 yr old peri menapause woman
    I started taking 1/14/18. Within 1 1/2 weeks i started feeling more calm&less stressed, my period took 24 days to start when i was getting every 2 weeks. My cramps are none and no breast swelling/pain anymore. I do feel in better spirits and my husband noticed the difference. I was getting really bad cystic acne and now its just about gone. I love that my skin looks softer with a glow on my face. I feel good and normal again.

    Good for acne
    I have been taking this product for a while now and my back, chest and face acne has decreased a lot! I am a 42 year old mother of 2 and I had severe acne after my pregnancies. I started taking this product in 2017 and the acne is gone. I only have one or two pop up once in a while but nothing like before I started taking this. It also helps with some menopause symptoms! Strongly recommended!
