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.
