    I am completely satisfied with the product. It states not intended for severe depression, which I do not have. Occasionally, my feelings are mildly sad,with anxiety, mild depression. I began taking is supplement and in less than 24 hours I felt calmer, more patient, the anxiety decreased dramatically, and I feel more positive about about myself. I'm glad it was referred to me.

    I used tinctures in juice, per label instructions. I tried two 1 oz bottles of this and I didn't see any noticeable difference in my depression. Went on prozac and I did see a difference. I've since gone off prozac and have found that outdoor exercise, lots of fruits and veggies, getting a steady job, and california poppy were all effective too.
