Keeps my cholesterol under control without the need of the dreaded statins. As one doctor put it recently, "statins put 10 years on your life - not to say you will live longer, they just make you feel 10 years older than you really are!" I can attest to that, fortunately, my wife did some research and I've been on these ever since - with my GPs blessing - THEY WORK. Thank you.

I feel that Healthspan is much poorer value than it used to be. The current product range seems to be packed with complex "glitzy" products to the detriment of good value basic products. As a result, I buy much less.
