What is the flavor, what does it taste like?
The flavor is Orange Mango. We chose this flavor to mask some of the bitter profile of amino acids, which are difficult to mask. We believe you’ll enjoy the taste even with water alone and certainly when mixed with juice or blended with a smoothie. For convenience many clients just add it to juice.
Where can I buy MEND?
MEND is available through doctors or surgeons or can be purchased directly from our website.
Can you ship to my country?
Yes, MEND is shipped worldwide. Please be aware of your country’s policy for importing dietary supplements and that additional taxes and tariffs may be applied by your country. In most cases it is delivered without a problem but sometimes customs can hold and ask you to pick up or call to arrange for delivery.
Are there any side effects?
The essential amino acids in MEND are safe and there are no contraindications or harmful side effects. Occasionally people with sensitive stomachs may experience some initial gas or slight irritability. This should subside as your stomach adjusts to the amino acids. If you do experience any irritation, you can simply dilute with additional juice or water, this usually resolves the issue.
