The company lives up to their word!

Over a couple years, I have received several products from this company. The products always arrived within 10-15 days. One time the product was not here in 23 days so I contacted them and they immediately reshipped. I received the replacement order within 10-15 days. I cannot say enough about them. The online chat and email is also available to answer detail questions about any product, even sometimes if they do not list on the website, it is possible to buy from them - you just have to ask if they have it. They save me a lot of money with excellent quality products and customer support!

Very Effective

This is a high quality product and it works very well. I usually get sinusitis infection at least once year. Just make sure the bacteria infection is gone before you stop taking them.
