Great product for the important task
Posted by djsoma on Feb 26, 2011
Great for getting rid of heavy metal toxins and most of all the bad calcium from the soft tissues causing stiffness and pain (it's called calcification, caused by wrong type of poorly-absorbed cheap mineral calcium like calcium carbonate etc). Taste is not too bad either. To de-calcify my body I'm also taking 1 tablespoon of MSM sulphur once or twice a day, mixed in water with Madre-C (natural vitamin c, which enhances absorption) and lime juice to cover the awful taste. Zeolite also great for taking a detox bath and feels very good in my hair afterwards :)
Not chemical free
Posted by djsoma on Jun 28, 2011
Despite describing itself natural sunscreen, there's a few toxic chemical ingredients used in the formula. After learning this I can't really use the cream anymore, and remember getting some irritation reactions especially when applied to the face. Better go with Aubrey Organics or Badger sunscreens since they have much better safety scores.
Couldn't finish the package, B12 as cyanocobalamin
Posted by djsoma on Oct 10, 2011
I can't really tell if these helped so much with my health, since I'm taking so much other stuff as well to keep me going on strong. I didn't like the smell or taste of these in the first place, but only after I got headache and nausea associated with the taste I decided to quit using them. My girlfriend took them and also reported headache after quite a short time of use. I'm now using coenzymated caps by Country Life with no problems, and the B12 is in the form of dibencozide and methylcobalamin, which I trust much more than the suspiciously named and controversial cyanocobalamin found on B-50 product, probably because it's 100 times cheaper from of B12.
Delivers the Kava experience
Posted by djsoma on Apr 30, 2015
From this drink I get everything I love about Kava Kava. It comes with very nice sewed bag and Kava powder double-packed to two plastic bags, one with a ziplock. I just put it in the bottle of spring water, shake and enjoy the numbing effect in the mouth and instant calming effects for the mind, muscles and nerves. For me the taste is a part of the experience, so I just enjoy it as it is. My woman didn't like it at all but she's still new to this wonderful, magical root. Of course you can add anything to the drink to alter the taste, like flavored stevia drops (cola and english toffee are my favorites).
Avoidable chemicals included

Great taste and effect
Posted by djsoma on Mar 31, 2013
Love the rich taste and the effect which is very strong on the dose of 1 tsp in cup of hot water tea. From Natural News article "Seven things every home pharmacy should have" Master herbalist Dr. John Christopher was shocked to learn that gulping down water mixed with a teaspoonful of cayenne pepper powder helped his ulcers. He went on to discover cayenne pepper could stop bleeding by pouring the powder directly onto a wound. More miraculously, a large 90,000 SHU (Scoville heat units) dose in water could stop a heart attack. For supporting cardiovascular health, two to three half glasses daily with one teaspoonful of at least 40,000 SHU of organic non-irradiated cayenne powder almost guarantees strong heart health.
I can feel the effect immediately!

Yeah, does exactly what it promises. For intense use you can take 4 caps which delivers almost a gram of ginkgo extract. And other brands claim that 120 mg is a lot ... well it's not.

I have never tasted fresh acai so I cannot compare, but on it's own this freeze-dried powder is really delicious and has a nice texture to feel. I just put it straight to my mouth and it kinda melts away with fresh taste. No complaints about this product.
Great nutrient-rich protein powder full of goodies
Posted by djsoma on Oct 14, 2012
Feels and tastes great with raw milk from the local farm and some stevia. I bought this for my partner and she liked it immediately. I went through the ingredients list and didn't catch anything alarming - mostly very good stuff and even the B-12 is as safe methylcobalamin and not as 100 times cheaper and quite controversial cyanocobalamin. Skipping the childish taste issues, my only remaining concern was about pea protein isolate, knowing that soy and whey protein isolates are unsafe products that can mess up my stomach and cause all kinds of other problems like greatly increase urinary calcium loss. After some googling I figured about that nobody knows for sure and my body will surely complain if the isolated pea protein starts to harm me in some way. So until I get some unpleasant symptoms that can't be overlooked anymore, I will keep on enjoying this with all it's delicious crunchy bits that come with the shake.
Good ginger oil for baths
Posted by djsoma on Oct 15, 2012
I mix this to my baths and feel the blood circulate and skin tingle. Smell is different from other kind of ginger products and complements them nicely. In addition to this, I normally use Frontier Natural's organic ginger powder, Eclectic Institute's ginger glycerite and sometimes raw fresh ginger from the local shop.
Miracle root for cheap price
Posted by djsoma on Oct 24, 2012
I'm a newbie for this adaptogenic anti-rheumatic tonic demulcent expectorant herbal remedy, so I rely on the information I've found at solomonsseal.wordpress.com/2011/02/14/solomons-seal-tea-healing-benefits/ "Solomon’s Seal tea, in particular, makes the best use of the plant’s excellent demulcent qualities (also referred to as mucilaginous or muco-protective). Mucilage is a polysaccharide substance obtained from the roots or seeds of a plant. A mucilaginous or demulcent herb is viscous and gelatinous, and thus protective and soothing to the mucus membranes and other irritated or inflamed internal tissues of the body. Solomon’s Seal, taken as a tea, soothes irritation in the digestive tract, lungs, throat, vagina, and uterus. On the other hand, the tincture is generally superior to the tea for treating sports and repetitive use injuries, and injuries involving tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, attachments, cartilage, and bones. In fact, the tincture works to strengthen the entire muscular-skeletal system. However, Solomon’s Seal tincture is generally less effective than the tea in preserving the soothing demulcent quality discussed above. Use either the tea or tincture to speed recovery after surgery or the setting of a bone, to rebuild strength and well-being after a fever or the flu, or to aid in keeping a chiropractic adjustment in place."
Body-relaxing pain-killing tonic
Posted by djsoma on Nov 24, 2012
Amazon multi-herb tincture based on the bark extract of the enormous 30 meters high Chuchuhuasi tree. It's pain and inflammation relieving, anti-cancer, immune-enhacing, digestion-stimulating, muscle-relaxing, libido and adrenals supporting qualities are rounded up with locally-found daisy-family member Feverfew, a migraine and arthritis easing, infection-based fever relieving, blood vessel toning flower. Large woody vine Cat's Claw supports with similar actions plus cleansing, detoxifying, cell-protecting, free-radical fighting and virus-killing effects. Gorgeous-looking foxglove-related Nucño Pichana works for upper respiratory ailments, biliary colic, congestion and menstrual disorders. It also acts as an analgesic for swelling, aches and pains and an antispasmodic. Rain Tree's big bulk bag of Chuchuhuasi powder has been out of stock of iHerb for months, with no sign of restocking, so these may be the last chances to try this herbal remedy for this time around.
