OG coffee is promoted as a very vague product. On one hand they tell people to not call it a health product yet it is promoted as a health beverage. When you ask how much healthy ingredient is in it, they say it's a coffee, cocoa or tea with a little health benefit. They lean heavily on the ganoderma mushroom yet there is no exact measurement in each product.
Please don't touch the stuff. I took a chance, based on the word of a friend who was 'in the know' - after just 2 coffees and 1 green tea, I had such a reaction that if I were not medically trained I could have died. My daughter had just one of the coffees (supposedly a 'health' coffee that is meant to be okay in pregnancy) and she was rushed to hospital - it brought on, in a previously vitally healthy female, symptoms similar to pre-eclampsia. I have been, after originally running for up to 10kms a day, barely able to walk a few hundred metres any more.
Embarrassingly that is shocking for a health professional who teaches nutrition and healthy lifestyle! They have told me I am the first person in 5 years to report such a reaction but similar stories are all over the 'net. So far, in my own network who all joined the week I did, there have been 6 reactions ranging from palpitations to collapse needing hospitalisation (symptoms similar to a severe asthma attack in someone who was not asthmatic). Steer clear of it - the 'coffee' tastes like sour stew and floor sweepings and the company will have you running round and round in circles trying to simply get the poison taken back to them!
This all happened in early June and yesterday (July 26) they finally organised a courier to collect, after suggesting I pay to have it sent back and they would pay me back for any unopened boxes - yet they advise you straight away to open all your boxes and hand out samples to get orders! Besides about 1/4 of my initial 'kit' was not even in the box. We are setting up a page we initially had to share the 'good' news haha. it is titled Organo Gold Side Effects - Made Me Sick - we want to get as many numbers as possible as it looks like they just ignore the fact they are making people sick (and broke) - it's cost my daughter and I around 6 weeks' income so far...
I would like to take a class action against them once numbers have been collected. As a previously vitally healthy individual, I hate to think how many people could die just drinking this, and it being put down to other causes.
