Wow I love this stuff! I take it right under my tongue the taste is strong and that let’s me know it’s fresh and strong. I love this stuff it is different from the pine pollen tincture because you can take it without needing the nettle root. You can sip some coffee after to lower the taste. Its really an amazing herb especially if you are in a long term relationship because it balances the massive amounts of oxytocin. I wish that every man that is in a long term relationship would get to try this! Also if you can afford it do get the nettle root and pine pollen tincture! This stuff is an all around winner you will do better at work and at home! This herb is an amazing gift! It changed my life my relationship is so much better, I do better at work so I can afford more herbs, and just recently my girl and I got sick and she had a fever and missed a day and a half and I only felt a tiny bit fatigued and about a tenth of the symptoms! I know it’s these herbs that made the difference. It is my opinion that this is th best herb to start with unless you are a single young guy then just do the pine pollen powder it is also amazing just less powerful.
