I have used Kolorex for years and it has helped me clear up candida, (bloating, sugar cravings and vaginal thrush.) It is such a good product I have recommended it, and bought it for others. My partner found it good recently when he had a bout of upset stomachs. This is the first time I have used the aniseed ones. I can't tell the difference really, other than that you get more capsules for less. These are good for a maintenance dose, but I will probably go back to using the original Kolorex oil capsules.
