I was introduced to this product by a friend, bought three tubs, and haven't noticed a thing in over a month. Upon closer inspection, I see that Silica is one of the ingredients. As I understand it, Silica is not consumable, and so I've stooped taking it.
Too ineffectual to use, too expensive to toss, and the rest of the ingredients are all common/available in any grocery store, albeit those are generally in a much more palatable. This product mixes and tastes like chalk, can't say I'll be recommending it. Live and learn it appears.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Hi Joanne, Aurora from Live Cell Research here. Thank you for leaving us a valuable review on your experience with Vital Stem so far. While most of our customers see results in the first 30 days, it may take a bit longer for others, which is why we always honor our 90-day money back guarantee.
Regarding Silica, it is very much consumable. Silica is an important compound in human ligaments, cartilage, and muscle and naturally occurs in foods, particularly vegetables. It is made of silicon and oxygen which are two essential substances for the human body to function at its optimum levels. We take pride in the ingredients used in Vital Stem, and wouldn't create a product that we didn't believe in!
I would be more than happy to offer you a full refund, just for giving our product a fair try. Please feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can begin the refund process immediately. Thank you!
