    1.5/10 Caution!!

    Effectiveness: 1/10

    (-) Can bring on depression

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "I read great things about Maca so decided to give it a try and added it to my morning smoothie. By the end of 3 weeks I was so out if it I had to take 2 sick days off work. I couldn't concentrate, I felt really down and anxious, and I was so fatigued I could hardly function. Basically, it brought on a full-blown depression. After stopping it, I was back to normal in 3 days.. Maca may work for some, but if you are prone to depression it is dangerous. Avoid at all costs!!"

    How did you use it?: Before Bed

    "I'm a lacto-ovum vegetarian and sometimes my iron gets a little low - my nails start peeling badly and my ears start to ring. Low iron was confirmed by my doctor so I went on Palafer at her recommendation.

    Palafer worked great (you can get it behind the counter-just ask a pharmacist); my nails grew again, and no more ringing in my ears. However, I found out it's made with gelatin (ground-up cow bits) so I wanted to try something else that was vegetarian and didn't have any artificial colors.

    I love all the Lorna V vitamins I've tried except IronSmart. After a few days of taking one capsule a day, I was so bloated I looked 6 months pregnant and I felt like there was broken glass in my bowel. I thought I'd developed IBS! The day after I stopped taking it, I was back to normal. I also tried the liquid version but didn't like the taste and found it inconvenient. So back to Palafer I go."
