I've tried St. John's Wort back in the day when it first came out. I had a horrible reaction to that including a tremor which was sexy. (It actually locked up my dog's limbs when we tried to go holistic for her anxiety issues. I've never seen the poor thing so scared) I tried probiotic pills when they first became all the rage in an effort to even out the digestive system since I hate yogurt. I felt horrible on them and discontinued after a few days. I tried aloe vera pills for digestion but it wasn't until I did research on them AFTER I started taking them that I saw some scary stuff about taking it orally so I stopped that pretty quickly and informed a friend that I knew was taking it too. The latest was Fish Oil supplements which are not known to give many side effects except maybe some...errr..."greasy" stools. I didn't care about that. I started taking it and the whole time my system was the opposite of what they said it would be and I actually didn't lose weight those 2 weeks I was on it. When I went off of them, I lost weight. So I think I'm done with those.
Matter of fact, I think I'm done with supplements period. I saw on a doctor show that sea buckthorn is supposed to be awesome for many different things from aiding digestion to improving skin and I was so tempted to try it but I already know it'd be a waste of money for me.
What about you? Do/have you taken supplements and if so, have you ever had any adverse reactions to them?
