Crystal Star Reflux Relief Review
Our number 3 spot goes to a product called Reflux Relief from a company called Crystal Star. One thing that we liked right away was that this company included Marshmallow Root in their formula but didn’t stop there….Ginger, Angelica, and Licorice and combined them with several key digestive enzymes which suggest that this product is designed to work on both the symptoms of Acid Reflux and the causes, which is a great start. What we didn’t like was that they lacked any scientific evidence of how helpful these were and the majority of what is in their formula is based on traditional medicinal practices and not modern day clinical studies. This product is relatively cheap but if you are looking for long-term Acid Reflux relief, this may not be a great option as they don’t offer any sort of discounts for multiple purchases which is something that we found a shame. This company has been around for a number of years (since 1978 to be exact – as stated on their bottles!) and they offer a good range of products which always lends credibility to supplement manufacturers and is something which consumers should look out for when purchasing any supplement.
Where this product really fails to impress us is their money back guarantee if you are not happy with the results – it doesn’t exist! They don’t have one. This is a huge negative point for us when we found so many products out there that do offer a guarantee (AKA confidence in their product), that to find one that doesn’t offer any kind of guarantee is alarming. Does that mean they don’t expect you to experience good results? Are they not confident in the products’ ability? Who knows, we can only guess the answer to this question. As our top product offers a 60-day return policy, we left feeling slightly disappointed in this product, to say the least, and were unable to rate it any higher than our number 3 spot.
Is Crystal Star Reflux Relief Effective?
With no money-back guarantee, the need for us to read consumer reviews is paramount to be able to ascertain whether or not this is a product worth investing in. Unfortunately, again, as with our second choice, we were unable to locate any real reviews from people who have used this product to see what kind of results they experienced. Without these, we have to rely on the data backing up the formula that they have used which, unfortunately, is lacking in detail regarding the specific ingredients and potency that they chose to include in the formula.
Even more concerning for us was the inclusion of ‘Certified Organic Brown Rice’ in their veggie capsule formula. Albeit we love that fact that it is served in a vegan-friendly capsule (as it is easier to digest) we did not like the fact they include rice in their product. It isn’t clear just how much rice they add to their formula which makes us weary because adding fillers and binders to any product can seriously affect the efficacy of the performance as it weakens the potency of the supplement. In a day and age where companies are steering away from including such ingredients, we were not at all pleased to see the inclusion of brown rice.
Is Crystal Star Reflux Relief Safe?
We found nothing in this product that we felt was unsafe. All the ingredients are top quality and the capsule is veggie-friendly. As with any new supplement or diet introduced into your daily life, we always advise talking to your healthcare professional about possible contraindications of any pre-existing medical conditions or medications which you are taking. Supplements work differently for everyone and the effects vary between individuals so it is always a good idea to run any health changes with a professional.
Although we really preferred the formula in Crystal Star Reflux Relief over and above our second choice, we were put off by the fact that it contains a brown rice filler. Without really knowing how much of this filler is included in their capsules, it is hard to gauge just how effective this product would be because fillers water down how well a product performs so this was a huge no-no for us. That said, we really did like the range of ingredients it does contain especially the Marshmallow Root which we know is backed by scientific data and clinical studies to show how well it works for overcoming Acid Reflux. We liked the price tag for this product but was disappointed by the fact that this manufacturer doesn’t offer any multiple deal discounts for purchasing one or more bottles. These guys would have to make some changes to compete with our number one choice especially concerning offering a good money-back guarantee as well as publishing some customer reviews to enable us to see what others out there think about this product. We did love that they serve their product in a veggie capsule and we like the reputation of the company who offer some top quality products for a variety of ailments. All in all, not a bad product, but could be better.
