Started taking for hormonal balance.
Started originally taking these for hormonal balance. An unintended side effect was my hair grows at a rapid rate, along with my fingernails. Monthly cycle has reduced in length, not so much severity (still heavy flow). I'm going to try Vitex in addition to this to hopefully help with cramps.

It really works
I started using EPO a year ago when my hair was thinning terribly from my thyroid medication. I can honestly say that the almost bald spot on the crown of my head had filled in completely and my edges are back to the thickness they once were. I highly recommed this product, but be patient. Its not an overnight fix.

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!!
