I only used this about 2-3 times: the adult dosage is quite large and I found I could not stomach that much of this horrible flavour/texture. I guess I expected like a jello, and instead it was a strange consistency. I couldn't eat the full recommended serving, therefore I gave up on it. Others may enjoy the taste: I could not attest as to the effectiveness due to my lack of consistency.
