Has the Vital Garlic Omega 3 500mg capsules been discontinued? Why can’t I find the mass of the new garlic capsules on the internet? Was the 500mg 100% pure garlic juice?

- Dewald / 23 November 2012


Dear Dewald,

Regrettably, Vital Garlic Omega 3 has been discontinued and replaced with a product called Vital Cholesterol Ease. The garlic extract in these products is in oil format, not juice.

We do still manufacture Vital Omega 3 Concentrate and Vital Garlic capsules in case you wanted these ingredients on their own.

Good Day. I am struggling with water retention. I was diagnosed with lymph edema especially in my legs. But it also affects my weight loss and I am bloated in my body. I have a underlying heart arrhythmia condition, which is being treated. I am on water pills and diuretics.
Is there a specialist or Dr that can be seen in South Africa that deals with water retention? I have tried many herbs that assist with water retention, it works for a while then it seems my body becomes use to it such as dandelion, sunflower seeds. I am at a loss.
