    It is a concern to think about regarding their Ginseng, however it is only 1 warning letter and it was on a specific batch.

    Nonetheless, my eyes will remain open in the future to see if any new violations pop up. I too like their products. Heck, right now I'm taking their L-Tyrosine, ALCAR, and their BCAA.

    Their 400mg CoQ10 is an amazing deal.

    I don't believe that I've used any of their products, but I almost bought a box of packets of their stevia extract.

    probably an isolated incident with an herb grower or something. I highly doubt it is indicative of the quality of the rest of their products

    I don't know about the quality of their products compared to other brands like Solaray or Nature's Herbs. Everything they make has just a ridiculously low price.

    Solaray, BAC and NOW are the main companies I trust.
