Definitely drink cold. I tried using a straw and it just made it harder to swallow. Best method for me was to take a deep breath, drink a big gulp of it and after swallowing exhale to get the smell out of your mouth. Not a great experience but not the worst thing I've had to go through. Good luck.

I'm going to try to get a refund of my $69.00 as the product didn't do the job.

My systolic blood pressure was up to 200 after completin ... Show Full Comment

I took the split dose regimen. Started at 5pm and it worked after the first 8 oz. I did experience chills, but overall it was ok on taste but salty. I did not refrigerate because I felt it would cramp my stomach. Someone's post said they drank other liquids ( 64 oz) after the first dose......they must have misread the directions. It is only suppose to be 16 oz. It was very effective and my d ... Show Full Comment
