The tablets should be placed under the tongue, where they will dissolve completely in short time. Adults can take up to 2 pills at a time but should not go above the recommended dose as well.

Though there is little information provided as to indicate how and why the product would work, whether it reaches its goal or not depends mostly on each individual’s response to the supplement.

8) Conclusion

Weleda, the manufacturer of Aconitum Napellus, states that their product does indeed accomplish its goal.

If more information was shared on testing this specific product, we would be happy to provide our readers with it.

Aconite or Aconitum Napellus is recommended to be a powerful form of antioxidant that can aid in purifying the body, by eliminating the toxins that have gathered throughout the years, from an unhealthy lifestyle. Whether Aconite lives to its expectations or not, the average food supplements consumer will be attracted by the product’s relatively low price. In a sense, you could buy a “trial sample” of the product to test it for a period of time before deciding to purchase a larger quantity, depending on how you react to it.
