Our family has used this product and we all are happy with it. My kids love its sweet flavor, they don’t complain at all. In fact, they are the ones who remind me for their daily dose. My husband uses it daily for his acid reflux. He always complains about upset stomach and frequent reflux before. His medications just cure the symptoms but they still come back. When we saw this product on amazon.com, we thought we should try it. After four days of use, my husband’s stomach started to get better and after a week, he complains less and less of acid reflux. I use Manuka Honey on my face too. It made my skin glow! I see and feel my face clearer from pimples and other blemishes. I don’t regret buying it at all.
