Colloids for Life CandidAss’t Review – The Bottom Line
We liked the large amount of probiotics in the ingredients but lacking were other vitamins and minerals that are found in other similar supplements. This product has a generous 120 day money back guarantee, and free shipping on all orders. If you sign up for the company newsletter you get a 10% discount off your first order. Negative comments we have relate to a lack of dosage information, and missing side effects and warnings. Pricewise, this is a quite a costly supplement to buy at $51 per bottle of capsule and without dosing information we are unable to know how long this will last you. The product has no customer reviews which is also a concern to us. We recommend that you look for a different brand of this supplement that has clear dosage instructions, good bulk buying options, and a broad spectrum of reviews.
