The Bottom Line
This product has a lot of good things going for it: it comes with a money back guarantee, has good consumer reviews and some natural ingredients and is free of milk, nuts, titanium dioxide, soy, shellfish, gluten, and fish. However, it also failed in some regards. First of all, the time limit for the money back guarantee is not specified on its website. We do not know if there is enough time to adequately sample the product to determine whether or not it works. Secondly and most importantly it does not provide the recommended 2,000mg daily serving as stipulated in clinical studies. It would need to specify a good time limit on its money back guarantee and increase it daily dosage to get a better ranking in our eyes.
