  1. great for lyme disease 5 Star Review

    this really helped my symptoms overall. it doesnt cure the disease on its own, but it is very protective of the blood vessels and the immune system. mix in a strong tasting juice to mask the taste of the herb. or make it into capsules.

  2. Exactly what I asked for. 5 Star Review
