According to what I've read: If you're dieting, you're releasing tons of free radicals. This antioxidant product seems to be a "free radical vacuum". Using this daily while I lose weight, I feel it helps me avoid that overly tired feeling that you get while dieting. You can google the main ingredient and gather more back ground info to help with your decision to take it or not. I'm on my second bottle and will continue to use it. And no, I did not get it for 'free' for this review, this is my honest opinion after researching it and trying it through at least one full bottle.
Supplement taken because of studies showing that it can reduce COX2 inflammation levels. Reduction in knee joint pain for subject afflicted with sero-negative arthritis was not significant. Subject mobility also did not improve significantly. On the plus side, there was no noticeable side effects. Will probably not re-purchase this product. Will probably try either Wobenzym or Beer Hops next to control inflammation.
