My Review :

Packaging : I adore the packaging – from the box it came in, to the actual bottle. It is plastic though and I would’ve prefered food supplements to come in glass (better for your health and the environment). It provides a good product description, directions for use and ingredient list.

Product : It is a fairly thick gel consistency that is clear. It does have a sweet ginger smell. When mixed with water, it has to be stirred or shaken otherwise it will settle to the bottom but it absorbs well if mixed.

This product really irritates me because it is sweetened!! The taste of sweet ginger is off-putting and I really wish they didn’t sweeten it. I read about the benefits of Xylitol but is it really necessary in this supplement (especially the second ingredient)? I don’t drink juices/smoothies daily so I found my best use was to add it to water but if you can imagine drinking water with a sweet ginger taste – it’s gross and requires stamina to drink! I used this for two weeks daily to see any effect, and to be honest, I didn’t notice anything. There were no associated side effects with ingestion, no GI upset, no nausea/vomiting and no changes to bowel habits. I’m going to try and finish the bottle because I’d hate seeing it going to waste but it certainly won’t be with my daily water consumption.

Where I purchased it? Cost?

I purchased this from Deciem during their Black Friday Sale. It retails for $38.00 CAD online.

Water, Sweetener Xylitol, Natural Ginger Flavour, Hyaluronic Acid, Preservative Citric Acid, Preservative Potassium Sorbate, Zingiber officinale Root Oil
