Well . . . it's not that magical
on April 23, 2010
I purchased Cocobiotic partly because it's hyped repeatedly in the promoter's book Body Ecology Diet. I also bought it based on the four glowing reviews I read here. The truth? It tastes interesting, a bit like champagne but without the buzz. But the claims of flattening your stomach aren't true.
Now I'm a thin person and in great physical shape, have always had a flat stomach until I developed an advanced case of candidiasis a year ago and nothing has been able to bring it all the way down to what it was. Not diet, not colonics, not even doing more stomach crunches. The distension can be very uncomfortable and although I'm following a strict candida diet (based on the advice in the BED), which is helping somewhat, I had hoped that this, what is almost being touted as a "miracle cure" would do the trick. It didn't. And it does not seem to be any better than taking probiotics or drinking regular kefir.
So why the steep price? $44 for 42 ounces of this stuff is highway robbery. I have seen this for $26 elsewhere on the web but even that's too much. But hey, don't take my word for it, buy it if you want to believe the hype and see for yourself. Don't say I didn't warn you.
