What our patients say:

There isn't a flavor.. I did not want to mark off for that when it's not relevant so gave a five. Overall this has been great.. it's suttle but it's helped take the edge off. I weened off a pretty heavy medication I decided was not best for me and it's left me very sensitive to mood swings of depression and panic attacks. I've been using this and noticed that I'm not getting nearly as anxious as I was.

After a traumatic life event, I've had problems with depression, anxiety, but mostly brain fog, inability to focus, etc. Orchex has helped tremendously with zero side effects. No withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking them. I take 3 or 4 per day. And have been using orchex for about 9 months.

This tablet is amazing to relieve muscle stiffness from arthritis. Take one tablet at night. You can take one during the day if needed. Been taking them now almost a year. Wish I had known about them several years ago.

My husband tried injections from the Doctor and many different prescribed gels and creams to help level him out. His emotions were all over the place, it was awful. A friend of his recommended he try this and the Catalyn, within a week of my husband taking the Orchex and the Catalyn I could immediately see a much better difference. I definitely recommend at least trying the supplements!!
