Rejecting a Healthy Supplement

I decided to try Ultraclear Sustain to see if it would help a  stubborn digestive problem. I used the product before but it was over a decade ago. It was helpful at the time. I had forgotten why I stopped taking it but figured the cost had something to do with it.

I started with just a teaspoon in liquid and gradually increased to a tablespoon. Then I started coughing every time I drank the stuff. Oh yeah... now I remember why I stopped taking it! That darn cough.

There have been other supplements that made me cough, things that were supposed to be healthful:
  • Flax seed oil
  • Psyllium
  • Coconut oil
  • Green tea
  • Rooibos tea
I don't know whether the cough is from an allergy or something else.
