It seems to work fairly well,

It seems to work fairly well, but will irritate acid reflux so you may not be able to take the full dose. I've been using this for almost three weeks now, and it has worked every time! Arguably the best $50 investment to date. I was expecting to pay a lot more money but found several options in Amazon that were half the price that I could find in a local medical supplies store. It presents valid research with adequate references and is a good read. I took this when I ran out of other brand. Organic Vitamins

ACIMAN'S "LET ME CALL YOU BY

ACIMAN'S "LET ME CALL YOU BY MY NAME" BELONGS IN THE HIGHEST CATEGORY OF ALL, GAY OR STRAIGHT, ROMANTIC STORIES, AT THE TOP ALONGSIDE (OR EVEN HIGHER THAN) MARY RENAULT'S "LAST OF THE WINE." PROFOUND INSIGHT INTO THE 'MEANING' OF LOVE IS GIVEN IN THE LAST SEVERAL PAGES, SO ASTONISHINGLY ACCURATE AND HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL THAT I HAVE READ, AND RE-READ, THESE PASSAGES AGAIN AND AGAIN - SINCE THIS BOOK ARRIVED VIA AMAZON A WEEK OR SO AGO. It gives the best shave I have ever had. This is the best thing I've ever used on my hair, which is short and curly. Its a little short but is one of Tim Burton's best. www.hopeark.com Also, be warned of the "2 day shipping." The manufacturer claims that means they send out the product within that time period, from overseas of course, and I was left waiting for about a month for it come, only to realize it is worthless The order came in a reasonable amount of time and was exactly the product that I could have purchased if I'd had to drive to town to purchase it. Everytime I've purchased any Canon ink cartridge, and I've purchased well over a hundred bargain brand's and Canon's, I've been extremely pleased with: o no clogging, o quality print, o page count per cartridge printing, o every cartridge printing when installed The only negative would be their high pricing, but I guess it proves the old axiom "you get what you pay for". Then in a few days I will have to do it all again as hair grows in different stages. You wanna know a simple solution? Its called air in a can. The base that it pops into is easy to install and makes getting in and out of the car super easy.
