What do you think of freeze dried organic acai berries and changa mushroom powder? I have controlled high blood pressure and recently was put on a Coumadin routine due to atrial fibrillation. I bought the stuff and never had a chance to use it.
I haven't been able to find any information about acai berries with respect to the amount of Vitamin K in each serving. While mushrooms are low in Vitamin K there's no information at all to support that changa mushroom powder would be of any help to your health.
When faced with claims from such products as acai berries or mushroom powders that seem too good to be true, they usually are just that -- too good to be true.
It's best to spend your money on good healthy food.
