My aunt has a PhD. in nutrition so when she highly recommended this product and even bought me a month's supply of it, I took her word that it is good for you! It doesn't taste bad either! It's not chalky or powdery tasting and it mixes well. It has a rich flavor and best of all it really does improve your circulatory system. My circulatory system is horrible, especially in my hands and feet, but after only using this for a week, I have noticed a slight improvement! I definitely plan to keep this as part of my regular diet.
