    Can’t tell (for Treat my mood condition(s))

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: I have no idea if this worked for me. It could have been placebo honestly. The only reason I was taking this was for muscle tension and because I heard it would help my skin/acne. I don't know if it did really. I don't think it hurts though, considering from several studies the average American is deficient in this.
