"I've been taking Boswellia for a while now and it does work, however I can't stand to take this particular kind, as it tastes awful. I should have bought the capsules. Vitacost brands are awesome, just be aware that this one has a strong, unpleasant (to me) taste."
"I can't take glucosamine so I was looking for an alternative, it works great for me ! I notice some of the glucosamine companies are figuring it out and adding it to their product. But you don't have to buy that, this is an awesome product."
"Boswellia is great for my knees. I was starting to have some problems with them. Also my hand was hurting. the doctor told me to take 12 asprins a day. Instead I take 3 Boswellia a day. And I have no more pain anywhere. I wouldn't be without it. And it's great price."
"i was advised to try this product for at least 60 days to notice relief of joint pain but after 34 days its already apparent. amazing how it feels with so much less pain. you will hear from me again in 30 days!"
"The cost of this product is very good when one looks at what others price a like item at today. Value is here for you! This can help all in so many ways and it is Natural! Give this a test for yourself to see the results."
"Herbs and nutrients are only as good as the vehicle that carries them. I found these tablets to be so hard that I doubt they are achieving adequate disintegration in the gastrointestinal tract. I don't know this for a fact, but I've been taking nutritional supplements for decades and have rarely come across tablets this hard. To get the benefit from this supplement you may have to chew the tablets and I can tell you they don't taste pleasant."
"I'm generally satisfied with other NSI brand purchases I've made before. Not this time, I usually buy Nature's Way Boswellia and I will stick with that. I don't feel this has the same effectiveness as Nature's Way."
"Before I ordered this supplement, I was concerned about the question raised by others about the size of these tablets. To my delight, they are no bigger than many other supplements that I already take. I highly recommend this product."
"The ordering and delivery process were efficient and prompt. Taking this product as a dietary supplement is a long-term process before effects can be recognized, so it is too soon to rate it -- hence the "average" rating -- there being no "other" category. So I cannot say whether I would recommend it or not. I can recommend purchasing these types of product from Vitacost in general."
"I am pleased every way with the product. It works. I go to the chiropractor less and the pain has almost left my shoulders. The best value for Boswellia I could find on the internet, and very quick service!"
"This herb works well, but these pills are far too difficult to swallow. I have to swallow it with a large spoonful of yogurt to get it down without sticking in my throat. I also gave some of it to a friend with knee pain. He said his knees stopped hurting, but the pills are hard to swallow. Neither of us will be getting another bottle of it for that reason.
I think the round and somewhat flat shape makes them much more difficult to swallow than tablets that come in an elongated capsule-like shape. The shape of this pill needs to change before I will recommend it to anyone else."
