Just a suggestion. The WORST part is the ES. Even then, some have mixed it with other things. Some evening, with no intention of flushing, just put a tbsp of ES in 3/4 cups of water and drink it down. Have another glass of water or mouthwash on the ready just to rinse the taste out. It will taste terrible. If you can tolerate those five seconds, then you can do it. THAT IS the worst part. The one dose may or may not give you diarhea the next morning.
