  • The original 8-herb Essiac blend from Rene Caisse

Essiac is one herbal supplement with a truly inspiring story. In the 1930's, legendary Canadian nurse Rene Caisse introduced an herbal blend based on an ancient Ojibwe formula. She and the formula quickly became famous. In the 1960's, Caisse worked with Dr. Charles Brush at his laboratories in Cambridge, MA, to enhance the original four-herb blend with four more powerful herbs. Today, these formulas are still among the most popularly recognized and requested herbal supplements around the world. Swanson is proud to offer Essiac (Caisse spelled backwards) Eight Herb Proprietary Blend in our Swanson Ultra line of quality supplements. It's the same great formula you'll find elsewhere, now available at a low Swanson price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by essiac It worked for my wife now I take it just in case. October 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Great SWANSON's Product I take Essiac for my own personal reasons, and have for many years! In addition, I can tell you specifically that I have been a loyal customer of SWANSON's since 1999, they rank 99.99% in my book for quality and service, and I would recommend SWANSON's to all! May 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Something Else! I have tried everything there is to help my Prostate and nothing gave me the relief I was looking for. I wanted to try this for health reasons and to my surprise this has done wonders for many things including my Prostate. I will not be without it. This helps with a great many things as well. February 10, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by not beneficial The blend of herbs contained in the large capsule was very little and felt no beneficial value from taking the Swanson Brand product. The thick capsule was all you tasted when digested in the stomach. Tried to make hot tea out of 2 capsules and the herbs were scares and could taste not one herb in formula ,just the terrible taste of the white capsule. Very disappointed in the Swanson Brand product. would not purchase this brand again. January 25, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Blah The pill form of the Essaic Tea is very poor and the softgel is way too big in this product. I didnt see any differance to my health condition compared to the Essiac Packets offered by Swanson. I took these for two weeks three times a day. If you want to improve your health take the time to brew the tea. Its well worth the time! I would only use the pill form for convenience. Probably will not order this brand again since it does nothing for me. December 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kidney stone sufferers beware! This is totally my fault for not reading the warning on the label. This is a great product for those who aren't susceptible to kidney stones. I just started taking Essiac for personal health improvement and noticed an increased rate of energy when I was struck with a kidney stone attack. I would recommend this to anyone who is not lactose intolerant as I am. October 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Essiac Great product. I have been taking for 6 months. I have lots more energy and an overall feeling of better health! August 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy Essiac I have always brewed Essiac in tea form and it is process that takes a full day in order to make a batch that lasts about a week. The pill form of Essiac cuts down on my workload but still provides the same supplement in an easy to swallow and easy to carry from. I have switched several client over to this pill form of Essiac since they have found it difficult to keep up with the tea during work hours, but the pill allows them to carry the supplement with them. The pill form is a little milder than the tea in terms of cleansing, but it is still very effective and I have found that it works well for maintenance and general wellness. July 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Large caps but go down well Haven't taken Essiac long enough to give them a correct effectiveness rating but although the caps are large, they go down well. April 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by once again, not sure if worthwhile one of those things, not sure if effective or not. February 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by it is easy to take I really think the capsule helps with this one product cause it is easier than making the tea I really like this product February 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have been using this product to boost my immune system and found it works well February 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by swanson vitamins Good quality, fast delivery, affordable prices: will be continue buying here February 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Essiac Formula This is a product I am so glad that you have in you line up of great products. This formula has been around for many years and the only reason the 8 herbs could be put in in a jell capsules is some of the herbs are in extract form. Do a word search and find out about the history of this product. This formula has 8 herbs instead of four and makes it better. December 26, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by MY FAVORITE ESSIAC I tried this essiac and really noticed that my energy increased and my overall feeling of good health improved. It is very convenient to take and easy to transport. I am very happy to find this essiac at this price. Many Thanks! December 17, 2010
