Remotiv is clinically proven, it is the exact product that has been used in clinical trials. This is very important for natural medicine as there can be great variance between products, even if they appear to use the same active ingredients, due to the plant that is used, growing methods, harvesting processes and manufacturing methods. The outcomes of clinical studies for natural medicines should therefore only apply to the exact product that has been examined. As a result, other St John’s wort extracts or products may not deliver the same results that Remotiv has demonstrated in the research.
Remotiv starts to work straight away and you should begin to feel better within 1 to 2 weeks. However, depending on individual circumstances, it may take 2 to 4 weeks to feel the effects. It is important to speak with a healthcare professional if you have specific questions or concerns.
