Yes, but monitor your blood pressure and possibly your prothrombin time if on anticoagulants. There should not be a problem, however.

11. What do I do when I finish my first batch of herbs?

We would suggest you continue with Formula 2 until the pandemic is over in your area. If you have underlying lung issues or a history of asthma or pneumonia we would also suggest one more round of Pneumonia Prevention Formula.

12. My second round of Formula #2 looks different than the first. Why?

We are dealing with 3 different reputable herbal providers. Each suppliers herbs have a slightly different quality, some are more granular and others are heavier. This also explains why the volume may look different. The weight is the same.
