Overall Rating for Nutra-Flax 250 Vegetable Capsules
Nutra-Flax is g-o-o-d stuff!
My chiropractor suggested Nutra-Flax by Pure Encapsulations a year ago (and I've been hooked ever since). I take the recommended dosage at night before bedtime and all is good the next day. My nutritionist recommends them too.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
