I'm now in by 4th month of using AG. This, an Omega 3 from GNC and the PAGG stack from Pareto nutrition are the only suppliments I take.
I'm not sure about the multi-vitamin aspect, it's probably fine. My pee isn't electric yellow so, if the vitamins really are in there, I'm absorbing them instead of passing them like with most tablet based vitamins. (I used to take Royal Jelly just because I liked the bright neon yellow colour it made my pee).
I’ve taken a Centrum multi vitamin for years. I have no idea if my vitamin levels were ok before I switched to AG. I’m assuming it’s a wash in that respect.
What I can say for sure is that it supercharges my digestive system.
If I forget to take it for a few days I can definitely feel the difference.
Also, in the 4HB book Tim talks about taking it as an immune booster. From my personal experience, I think that’s valid.
Around now, as Fall sets in, I usually get a severe cold. I got one again this year but it was very slight. It took about a week to fully run its course but the overall duration and severity of the symptoms were significantly reduced. Within the first weekend most of the symptoms were gone. I mainly just felt fatigued for the remainder. Overall, it was the mildest cold I can remember.
This could be a coincidence, I won’t know if it’s a pattern until I get sick a few more times. But I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
About a month ago AG ran a customer feedback survey. I made a point of telling them that I thought their website reflected badly on their product and the tone of their follow up emails was smarmy. Time will tell if they try to improve on that respect.
Lastly, I still hate the taste. I basically just drink it down as fast as possible. I don’t understand any of the reviews I’ve seen that say it tastes great. Compared to what? I’ve never taken any other “greens” supplement so I guess it’s possible that they all taste worse.
