Hello my loves,
How are you? I hope you are all well. I told you on Tuesday that I would be back and I have kept my promise. If you didn’t see Tuesday’s post, you can read it here. I am bringing you another review, but next week I have two quite serious posts coming out so I thought I would lighten the mood.
I was kindly gifted the Dendrobium 600 vitamins back in May and I have been taking them everyday for the past 60 days, so now it’s time to share my thoughts.
I won’t lie to you, before I started taking these vitamins, I did extensive research on what was inside because I never ever just take anything that I am gifted. After my research and checking with my GP to make sure that these wouldn’t interfere with any medications that I am currently taking.
I do not believe that these have worked for me. This is used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to boost the stomach and engender (whatever that may be) fluid, nourish yin and clear heat. Well, it really didn’t do any of that.
- Constant nausea
- A dry mouth
- Feverish symptoms
- Increased seizures.
Upon further extensive research (because my GP had never heard of it before so didn’t know what could potentially happen) I found out that no-one has actually done enough studies to find out more information on this plant that the Chinese so frequently use.
I whole heartedly do not recommend this product, I have voiced my concerns to my GP too who is also going to be looking into this product. Dendrobium contains a chemical that may increase seizures. MAY cause seizures! I do not find that these are appropriate as vitamins nor do I think they should be used as pre workout supplements.
I am hugely disappointed by the brand for not doing their research, for not carrying out enough studies on the effects it causes and for not stating any of this in a description bar below the product. You are led to believe that this is some great energy boosting product when in fact, it hasn’t been proven to be that.
Overall, I would like to think that you are all sensible enough to extensive research on a product that you have not used before and if you have any side effects that you do not feel are what is classed as normal, stop taking them and seek medical advice before discarding the product. I will never be using products from this brand again, and I strongly advise that you don’t either.
Thank you for reading tonight’s review, if you enjoyed reading my post, et me know by leaving a like and comment below.
I shall be back on Monday with a new post.
Sending you lots of love,
