Don't buy into the hype about the value of these pills. There is little to no value, and potential harm in taking them. You definitely don't need them at your age and you are probably duplicating between the products you alread. ...Read more

Safe to take a goldenseal supplement?

Goldenseal: Although goldenseal has interactions with many medications, it is not likely to interact with Aciphex (rabeprazole). If you take other medicines, be careful.
