"I read the review by GseginBoulder. I have the same complaint: I taste garlic every time I burp. I never had any issues in the past, and have ordered these same capsules for years. When Vitacost recently started making the capsules larger, then I noticed the problem. At first I thought it was because I was putting a clove of garlic in my green smoothies. But even when I don't put the garlic in the smoothies, I still taste garlic in my burps. Does this mean I smell like garlic too? I guess I'll have to ask family to find out. I will continue to take them because it is tolerable for me, but if I find out that my breath or my body is giving off garlic odor, then I'll have to quit."
"I've taken Vitacost odorless garlic on a regular basis in the past with no issues. I re-ordered the product and noticed the capsule is now much larger. The worst part is that you will burp garlic for hours, whether you take this with a meal or a protein shake. I finally couldn't take it anymore and have disposed of the entire bottle. I'm not sure what they changed but this was just terrible."
"I've been using these pills for a long time and absolutely loved them because they are odorless and were very small. Unfortunately Vitacost redesigned them and their now 3x the size but the same strength. What in the capsule now--more filler? How did they possible increase so significantly in size but not strength?
"I was hoping to take this for heart health, however each time I have tried (before a meal, after a meal, on an empty stomach) I burp up garlic for the rest of the day. The product is odorless, you won't smell garlic when you open the bottle, but the garlic burps are a major deterrent for me."
"For whatever reason, these pills were redesigned to be much larger. The size doesn't bother me, though it is confusing and disconcerting how it can be the same dose in such radically differently sized pills. (Lots more filler?)
My issue with these is that they aren't odorless anymore. I take this pill in the morning, and now I have garlic burps into the early afternoon everyday. If they don't change the formulation/design again to be more like they were before, I might have to find a different garlic pill to take."
"I agree with other reviewers that when these were tiny they were easier to lose, but now that they've made them football shaped and 3x larger, they are causing garlic burps. I'm going to call VC to find out what the deal is. If they don't have truly odorless garlic anymore I'll have to look elsewhere."
"My wife and I have used these for years now and always felt they were good quality. If we had one complaint it was that the softgels were so small and perfectly round that they were easy to lose. Our newest order 10/15 came today and they are now football shaped and about 3 times the size that they were. We're curious as to what comprises the additional liquid inside. Hopefully they haven't just increased the filler oil."
"I've been taking this product to boost my Immunity system with great results. Garlic seems to have many other benefits too. I just wish VitaCost could make dryer softgels, so they don't leak (my Garlic softgels always leak after some weeks). Definitely a recommended product."
