Yellow,

It doesn't say on the website that its $5, it says full boat baby but if you buy 2 you get one free.
Gosh, even Don Lapre's greatest vitamin in the world is cheaper and we know he's not selling vitamins for your health.
I'm not flaming just I didn't see the $5 schwingie

OK, I just ordered. They tried a couple of tricks:
1) tried to sign me up for auto reship
I turned this down, the will send the free bottle anyways
2) they tried to sign me up for a free 30 day trial of some medical help program with subscription follwoing 30 day trial.
I turned this down as well and they are still shipping.
a little pushy but not too bad
1 free bottle of 120 tablets
$4.95

I've ordered this before and did the buy 2 get one free to start this offer because there's like this 30 or 60 day return/guarantee policy. I tried it out and it was ok, but then since it was so expensive and since I wasn't sure if it was really working, I kept the remaining pills that I had left at the end of the trial period and returned the bottles almost completely empty. They gave me a refund. I might try it again sometime. It could be psychological, but I think it does help me focus sometimes for longer amounts of time, and I might have been able to retain some things better when I tested this out, but still it's pretty expensive.

Be careful. I just saw a consumer warning on our local new concerning this offer. It said people were being billed even if they turned down all of the extras the CSR offered. The news story said Focus Factor was one of the top five most complained about companies at the BBB.

Snake-oil to put it mildly.

On a local radio station here they're pushing a product called "Better Man" which according to them is better than Viagra and will help incontenance as well. They advertise a number of other similar "Natural" products.

The radio stations ought to be ashamed of themselves.

A lot of info about vitamins and suppliments here:
http://www.qualitycounts.com/
Do your research before taking this stuff. I take various suppliments a day, and I can say for certain that taking vinpocitine (in combo with the other stuff I take) makes me more alert and able to concentrate.

I just checked out the Focus Factor site, it doesn't look like it's any better than any other decent multi-vitamin.
