    Work great!

    Tried this product after someone recommended it. Have to say, since I started using these drops, my allergy attacks have subsided dramatically. Previously, at least once a day, I would get hit all at once with runny nose, watery eyes, and a bad cough. Usually at just the wrong time, quiet room, concert, etc. Those kinds of attacks are now rare, and the only thing I've done differently is take these drops. Before I moved here, I was never allergic to anything and have lived a lot of places, many states and overseas. Glad my wife and I found these drops, I recommend them to others and keep a good supply on hand.

    Thyroid Strength

    I work at Evergreen Nutrition and want to let people know about MegaFood's Thyroid Strength. It is helping to support my thyroid function to the point that I am gradually reducing the Levothyroxine dose (under a doctor's care). Blood tests confirm what I can feel. This is an excellent product!
