Youth Tissue Extract
i am so excited about this product, it takes a little while to see results, but my biceps have increased in diameter beyond what ive ever been able to achieve on my own. i measure my biceps regularly and have never been able to get above 17 inches. after using youth tissue i am now 18 inches. this definitely works and the cost is worth it

no noticable benefit
my husband and I used old version and without a doubt the best supplement ever. we are very nutrient oriented and when we were no longer able to order more we rationed what was remaining of our supply. an occasional capsule here and there.it was still quite impressive. we ordered 6 bottles of the new formula. it did nothing. we then went to 6 capsules twice a day using up the remainder of our new formula. with no noticeable benefits. swanson and dr. e. please bring back old form even if it we be $ more

need old formula
I, like all of these other reviewers took the original formula and it changed my life. I had energy and well being above all other supplements I have ever taken. This new formula is disappointing but the directions like the other reviewer said are different. I took as directed and felt nothing, but bought a second bottle and have been taking more like the old directions and have felt a difference but not the same since there is only 100mg. The old formula had 400mg. Since I have to take more to achieve the old results means it will cost a lot of money to do this. I do not understand why it has changed, less ingredients, less capsules, but the same price. Please bring the old formula back.

Different directions than the old version
I remember the old version suggested taking 1 capsule 3 times a day for the first 3 weeks then reduced to 1 capsule 1 or 2 times as maintenance. Following the new directions seems to take longer (thus need to buy more bottles) in order to achieve the same result as the "old version." In general, however, I am happy with this product.

OLD VERSION WAS BETTER
I took the old version & felt results almost immediately. When it became unavailable, I searched, in vain, even thru my family in Europe.
Was I excited to see this come back, bought a bunch of jars at once! But, alas, this has no effect on me, whatsoever. I am so-o-o disappointed. PLEASE, BRING THE OLD FORMULA BACK!!!

Effectiveness of new version is questionable
I used the original version of this product from 2006-2010 before it became "not available", and thought it was about the best supplement I'd ever taken. It gave me more energy, improved intimacy, and seemed to help me with weight loss too. When I stopped taking it, all that reversed. About a year ago I found an unused bottle on the back of my shelf and took it again until the capsules were gone, and the results were good.
So I was really happy to hear that it was being brought back in an "improved" version, and bought 5 bottles right away. I wish I'd just bought one bottle and tried it out first.
I've been taking the "new" version for about two months and don't think it works as well as the original version did, if it is working at all. Sometimes "new and improved" versions of products don't live up to that claim, and I'd say this is one of those cases, for me at least. I also noticed that while the original version was a bottle of 90 400 mg capsules, the new version is a bottle of 60 100 mg capsules.
Whatever was done when reformulating this product does not seem to be working for me. I recommend you buy just one bottle and see what results you get. I hope it works for you, but so far, I'm disappointed in the new version.

Doesn't seem as good as the old version
I bought the prior version of this product and used it from 2006-2010 and thought it was great. It gave me extra energy and endurance, seemed to improve intimacy, and I strongly believe helped me to lose weight when dieting. After Swanson discontinued the product a few years ago, of course I had to stop taking it, but discovered an old unopened bottle last year and started taking it again and it made me feel good within days. The original version was a great product.
So I was really glad to see that Swanson was once again making YTE available, and immediately ordered 5 bottles. I wish I hadn't, because this new version just doesn't seem to work as well as the original version did for me. The prior version was 400 mg capsules, this one is 100 mg. There are also fewer pills in the bottle, dropping from 90 to 60. Supposedly it was reformulated and improved, but I've been taking it for two months now and this just has not worked like the original version did for me.

This puts a little more pep in my step.
