Does Vitamin C cause Kidney Stones?
A large Harvard University Study Founds No Link Between Vitamin C and Kidney Stones. Harvard looked at the issue and did not find a correlation between vitamin C and kidney stones, but they did find a correlation between low vitamin B6 and the propensity to form stones. People forming kidney stones should also drink more water, add magnesium and a good Super-B complex vitamin (with vitamin B6).

After taking the remedy and having the cramps go away, how long before they come back?
If you have cramps every night, you might have them return the next night. We do have lots of users who start noticing that they now only have cramps every few weeks and not every night like before.

Can you tell me about the taste and smell of the product?
The organic apple cider vinegar is the predominate taste and odor and it is strong, much like a straight shot of a strong vodka. The garlic adds no taste or odor at all. Ginger is neutral - no odor and no taste. Getting by the strong taste is worth it to almost everyone - no chemicals, no medicine, all natural and fast acting.
