I am so sorry that you have had to pay so much for your recovery and to feel better. This is the issue I take with other companies putting out bad mixes is this: people think that only A*******e works. The think is, Nutratose seems to be run by scam artists! I do know of a mix that is more concentrated than A*******e and ALOT less expensive. Their comapny can really lead you in the right direction as to how to MAKE your own. They just want to see people get well. THey are concerned with peoples health, not a huge profit margin. G*********n is really concentrated and I am sure that if you take it you will be able to cut your doses by 3/4 and it is ALOT less expensive. Good luck with everything.
