What is use of tablets containing bee pollen, granular, honey, stearic acid, silica and royal jelly?
Unknown Supplement: This is definitely not a prescribed medication. It has nothing in the ingredients list that would have any medical or health benefit. It is probably one of the thousands of fraudulent products designed by herbal or 'supplement' factories to sell to gullible humans. ...Read more
Safe to take lorazepam w/ nature made magnesium supplement(mag ox, cellulose gel, croscarmellose sodium, mag stearate, silicon dioxide, stearic acid)?
