Dosage: 1 other Daily
Advice & Tips: Dosage I take is 12c daily (just before hottest part of my day). I take it for heat intolerance protection Unexpected benefits: 1) Helps me sweat; of which I'd been unable to do since onset of heat intolerance. 2) Hyperacusis (Noise sensativity): helped this within 1 wk of use! I'm able to be in higher volumes, hense more social environments due to this product. Greatly impacts my quality of life. 3) Food sensitivities: noticed immediately, assists in reducing incidence of excessive side effects from foods like sugar, caffeine. I have a terrible side effect of biting fingernails severely IF i'm withdrawing from sugar and caffeine, however, with use of this product, it minimizes the fingernail biting side effect, which seems stemmed in ocd.
Cost: < $25 monthly
