These have CELLULOSE in them so I definitely won't be buying again. In terms of size, these are a bit big but they work (not pill box friendly). I didn't realize they were tablets and not capsules so the delivery is a bit slower... I prefer capsules so won't be buying again.
Not a fan of the "other ingredients" below. I prefer a more cleaner product.
