Cold and flu season is in full swing, that’s for sure. That’s why when I was asked if I would review Khroma Herbal Products : Warrior Organic Immunity Blend, I jumped at the chance. With 2 growing boys who go to school and come into contact with germs on a daily basis, anything that can keep my family and I well during a season of sicknesses is definitely welcomed in this house!
The first thing I noticed when I received my supplement is that it comes in a glass bottle, so there’s no worrying about BPA! I also immediately smelled the herbs and spices as I opened the bottle. It actually smells like something you would add to a meal, as opposed to a “medicine” smell. I really liked that because it felt like I’m actually getting what I’m told I’m getting, instead of some substitute.
So far, since I started taking these supplements, I have not gotten sick once. Winter is always the time when I get a cold. No matter what I do or how often I try to prevent it, without fail, I end up with a cold. But so far, I am cold-free! That is amazing considering the weather has been super crazy, even here in the south. Growing up in the North, I’m no stranger to the cold and snow, but to see snow twice in one season in Houston…even that seems crazy to me.
The bottle states to take one capsule, twice a day, But, for me, I noticed that when I took that second dose, even if it was hours before I laid down to go to bed, I would end up with a nasty case of heartburn as I started winding down for the evening. I couldn’t understand why I was getting heartburn because I was not eating anything out of the ordinary. That’s when it occurred to me that it was probably the supplement. Once I cut out the later dose and just stuck with the one pill in the morning, the heartburn went away. It still seems to be working for me and I can get twice as many days out of my bottle now. Of course, everyone is different and not everyone will react the same way. Many may find that they need that second dose. I just attribute it to the fact that I don’t eat spicy food. I just don’t like it. So, if there is anything that is spicy (well, spicy to me), then my body goes haywire and gives me a nasty case of heartburn. So, for now, I’m going to blame the cayenne powder for the heartburn.
Ingredients are listed on Khroma Herbs (find the link below), so if you are sensitive to any of its ingredients, you will know before you make your purchase.
But, even during those bouts of heartburn, all I was thinking that it was proof that everything they claim are in their products are the real deal. No fillers here! And if it means that I didn’t get the flu or some other nasty bug, I can deal with a little heartburn here and there.
Khroma Herbs only uses organic, vegan, ethically sourced, and eco friendly products. I have not been using their product for long, but I believe their claims. I’m not any sort of nutritionist, but I do know my body, how it reacts to different things, and how I feel when I make good choices in what I put in my body. And taking these supplements makes me feel good.
