From the manufacturer
We want the best when it comes to our food. Why would we want anything different for our vitamins and supplements?
We are fanatical about food. We’re different that way. Whether we’re making a vitamin, or a probiotic, or a protein powder, we always start with real foods and these (foods) provide our formulas the power to be their best. We’re different that way, too. The synthetically created, chemical “breakthroughs” from huge commercial laboratories around the world are not for us.
As fanatical as we are over what goes into our products, we are even more obsessed about the things we keep out of them. We hate those synthetic chemicals that most companies use to make their products. This stuff makes machines work faster, and helps factories churn out super-sized containers at higher “efficiency.” We’re uncompromising about your health. Slow it down, make it by hand, grow it in rich soil with enough sun, air, water and time for it to be its best. Harvest it when ready. Treat it with care. Turn it into a power-packed nutritious food supplement. That’s what we are about.
The Science of Whole Food
Your body was created to eat, process, and derive its nutrition from food—real, healthy food. So, when we create our products, we start by looking at food. What is the “good stuff” in quality food that we are missing in our diets? Which of those foods have the greatest potential to impact—and empower—extraordinary health?
Clean is healthy
We start with what goes IN our products—true, whole food ingredients. But we don’t stop there. We also pay very close attention to what we keep OUT of them. And once again, we look at food—real nutrition food. When is the last time you picked up an apple, turned to read the ingredients, and saw a list of chemicals? If it’s not in your food, then we don’t want it in our supplements.
Traceability is key to what makes Garden of Life’s products so special. Traceability starts with knowing where each and every ingredient in our products comes from and getting to know each and every source: where it’s grown; the farming practices; how they pay and treat the farm workers—everything. That’s why it’s so important to start with fruits and vegetables that are grown without these chemicals. We want to get the good stuff from foods that are grown without any of the bad stuff.

Having said that.....i suffered with constipation and was diagnosed with IBD several years ago. I took prescription medicine to treat the symptoms for years. In this time frame I tried over 20 different probiotics, prebiotics and changed my diet several times. I purchased this product and it worked but and there is always a but........you need to know how to take it. This is what I did.
1. Started taking 1 capsule first thing in the morning on a empty stomach. You will feel a little nausea at first as its normal but that goes away after week1.
2. Starting on day 8, add a capsule before you go to bed. Now you are taking two capsules per day. During this 2nd week you will start noticing that your having consistent bowel movements and the bloating starts to reside after meals.
3. I started taking the 3rd capsule before lunch but this may not be necessary for everyone. The rule of thumb that I use is this. If you have a bowel movement within the first hour of waking up in the morning them its working. When your digestion is in peak form, you should have a bowel movement between meals. This means two to three per day however everyone is different depending on a multitude of variables.
Now the most important part. Take it consistently. This means if you live like most and have a hectic lifestyle, you must plan ahead. I purchased a small prescription bottle and I keep in my travel bag that goes everywhere with me. You have to take this consistently and it will work for you. Don't fall into the trap when you start to feel better that you forget the reason why and stop taking it. I will be writing a free book and posting it on nutrition and exercise and NO i don't have a angle and I'm not selling anything. I already have two jobs and don't need another one. I have reached a point in my life that it becomes more about giving back and helping people than it does about making money. Money doesn't bring happiness especially at the expense of lies and deception.
I hope this helps to determine if you should try this product and how it works for you.
God Bless and keep yourself and your loved ones safe, happy and healthy through these crazy times in our country.
