    Where can you find it at a good price? I haven't looked a whole lot, but the places I have looked don't have it. Any ideas?

    I get mine at a Health Food store, and it's $5.49 for a quart jar. Putting a teaspoon or so in the water pan a couple times a day, it lasts a long time though. And we use it occasionally for heartburn, but still I'm only on my second bottle since April.

    I get mine at Ingles grocery store. It costs $2.83 for a 16 ounce bottle. The label name is Spectrum. Most large chains have organic products now so you should be able to find it.

    Balances the pH in their gut. Helps build up their immune systems as well, as I understand it.
