Review: Himalaya Septilin

This blog post provides a review of Himalaya’s immunity boosting supplement Septilin

Himalaya is a well-known company for herbal products. I decided to try its Septilin capsules during winter to improve my immunity against colds and virus infections. As per the Himalaya website, Septilin is as per doctor’s prescription and not for self-medication. It is available as a syrup too but I tried the capsules since it is convenient to carry. It is not specified whether it is to be taken on an empty stomach. I took 1-2 tablets after breakfast and dinner each. It is light blue in color and leaves a color mark on the tongue or on the fingers if they are wet.

Review: Body Buddy Protein Drink

Do you need a ready to drink protein shake when you don’t have your favorite whey protein handy? Body Buddy drink is one of the options. This morning I decided to try the Body Buddy ready to drink protein and sharing my experience with you. The seal seemed unusually hard to open, which is good because it ensures that it was not tampered with. After trying for a while, I punctured it with a pen. I had a good workout in the morning and that had made me hungry in the mid afternoon. I sat on my office desk and took a gulp. Chocolate orange flavor had a tangy taste and the liquid seemed thick. I completed the 330 ml over the next 2 hours among many work related distractions. Continue reading “Review: Body Buddy Protein Drink”
