maltodextrin?
 November 29, 2007
" The reason some may find this product useless may be due to the fact that they use maltodextrin in the ingredients. Maltodextrin is bad for a stomach that is used to eating pure organic food and it's bad for others too. As far as I can tell, it is unnecessary in this product. "

" I don't know if it's the extracting process or if it's a synthetic product or what, but I don't feel anything after taking this product. HOWEVER, I took in the past Mastic Gum from another manufacturer (Nutricology - Allergy Research) and it was good and effective!! "

" I took this product as directed for four months but it did nothing for my stomach. Vitacost has excellent prices but this product didn't work as advertised so I don't think it was a good value. "

Extreme Savings!
 April 30, 2007
" As many know, this product is great for digestive health and even as a supplement in cleansing. The value at Vitacost is excellent! This same supplement at my local Natural Food Grocer is 2-3 times the price! I have purchased from Vitacost several times and am always happy with the quality of product, speedy shipping, and have always had excellent customer service! Great product and great company! "
