I agree that summerhaunt has an excellent and informative post - much appreciated.
One issue regarding IP6
At least one vendor, Source Naturals, has this to say. It means that I will not be able to use it for a while; due to its blood thinning quality.
IP-6 Suggested Use: Mix one and a half teaspoons with water daily, or as recommended by your health care professional. For systemic support, take on an empty stomach. For direct colon support, take just prior to or with meals.
Warning: Take on an empty stomach if you are anemic. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or taking blood-thinning medications, consult your health care professional before using this product.
