Recently I was told by doctors that I may have Connective Tissue Disease, another auto-immune disease on top of my Hashimoto's Thyroid Disease. This after 5 years of docs, tests and personal research. All along I've been told by both my current docs that I should be eating somewhat vegan/vegetarian, cutting out red meat, pork, refined sugar and all dairy. I was fighting the dairy part since I LOVE cheese! Anyhow, up until about 3 weeks ago I was making breakfast smoothies with either egg white protein powder or whey powder since I'm not supposed to have soy with my thyroid nodules. I did try plain pea powder but its a tad rough tasting. I finally decided to try cutting out everything mentioned above to see if I felt better, so I bought this PlantFusion protein powder, got vanilla so it would go with most add-ons. I really love this stuff, it tastes good, it doesn't make me bloated or gassy like most other powders, and the price is not much more than cheap powders sold in our local low end retail store. In my Ninja I add almond milk, frozen strawberries, one scoop of powder and 2 tablespoons of Calm powder orange flavored. It makes a tropical flavored smoothy that does not need sweetener, and it keeps me fairly full until lunch. I will continue to buy this exact version. Also as an FYI, my inflammed muscles, painful joints & ability to focus is greatly improved with the elimination of the toxins mentioned above. And I have tested it by eating ice cream, jelly beans and steak (not all at the same time)!

I use this conditioner about once a week, alternating with others purchased from IHerb. This one really moisturizes and makes my hair silky, so using it daily weighs my oily hair down. It does exactly what it says in one treatment! Oily hair users just use it about once a week for damage repair.
Love the Aroma
I've been using this body wash for about 3-4 wks now. The vanilla mint aroma is nice for a wake me up in the mornings plus it also suds up really well. I haven't noticed much in the way of skin moisture vs. others I've tried but I would buy it again since it's a good quality in a large bottle for a decent price.
My 11 Year Old Beagle Loves These!
Posted by CritterChuckles on Jan 15, 2012
Lucy the Beagle was having trouble walking from hip arthritis. She had become very leery of getting up or down off the sofa and spent most of her days lying around. I first purchased a bottle of joint supplement for her at the local pet store & did see a difference within 3 days. But once we finished that bottle I decided to buy something from iHerb since I order all of my own supplements on here. I purchased this formula since it has MSM plus Glucosamine and our veterinarian said MSM is excellent for joint health. We are now about 75% thru the bottle and Lucy is running around like a puppy! She plays with our other dogs, runs around barking & wagging her tail and runs to find me to give me kisses when she gets up from her naps! She will be 11 yrs old in a couple weeks and she's now acting like she's 11 months. She runs in the kitchen to get her "vitamin" when I tell her it's time, and if I happen to forget one I see a difference in her the next day. So I now have the bottle sitting on the counter where I can't miss it. And I'm back on iHerb today to order another bottle. I believe this is an excellent choice if you have an older dog with joint pain. If you see your elderly pet slowing down and not being as active then chances are their joints are hurting and this product will help. Well worth the money and with iHerb you'll have it in hand within a few days.

Bought it on a whim couple weeks ago and I'm back to buy more! This conditioner is lightweight, smells wonderful & clean with it's fresh lemony scent, and it doesn't leave a build up. I have very oily and thin hair and this conditioner seems to give me a nice shiny & healthy bounce. I came back to buy the matching shampoo but it's out of stock so I'm getting several other Natures Gate products to try. Highly recommend this conditioner!
Love This Stuff!

Yum Yum....this dessert powder is awesome! It tastes GREAT, has low sugar content & mixes very well. Not sure if I'm going to lose any weight by using it as a breakfast supplement but I have to say its the best powder I've tried yet & I've tried about 6 different brands. I mix 1 1/2 scoops in a large glass of plain Almond milk, stir it vigorosly with a spoon & I stay full for at least a couple of hours. I'm back on tonight ordering the Chocolate & Vanilla ;-) Great stuff, you won't be disappointed.
I Really Like This Shampoo!

I use it every day now, its great for my hair which is very oily & thin. It really suds up well, rinses clean and leaves my hair healthy and bouncy. Will definitely buy again.

We have a lot of pets so we're always cleaning up "accidents" in the house and I wanted to try switching to something with less chemicals, not only for pets health but due to our hardwood floors. This spray is great to use on everything, I now even use it to clean all my kitchen counters & deodorize throw rugs.
I bought this with Fucoidan after I saw the combo mentioned on Dr. Oz for weight loss. I wish I'd picked another version of Licorice 'cause this stuff is really gross. It's giant lozenges that are very powdery and does not taste much like Licorice, more like bad medicine! I'm not very finicky when it comes to taste or consistency but this bottle will be sitting on the shelf for a while. I've only been able to bring myself to eat 6-7 of them in several weeks!
Husband Takes It For Weight Loss
My husband takes this every morning since he heard it might help him loose weight with his sedentary work schedule. I haven't looked at the scale but he says he's lost 5 lbs and he's been taking it for about 3 months. I don't feel that's much to brag about, plus its pretty pricey so I'm going to give it 3 stars.

I use this bar in the shower every single morning on my oily face. It removes any dirt, grime or makeup residue and makes my face squeaky clean! Love it!
