Contains sodium selenite

Posted on Apr 02, 2016

1 person found the following review helpful

I like the dosage and the fact it contains vitamin E but... it also contains the form of selenium called "sodium selenite". Dr Mercola writes "According to the 1986 edition of the Handbook of the Toxicology of Metals, daily intake of about one milligram of selenium as selenite can be toxic. In one study, sodium selenite was found to induce substantial DNA damage in human fibroblasts." (google Mercola sodium selenite to read the whole article). I am not sure if Life Extension is aware of this, or if they think 50mcg is low enough not to pose a risk or if they believe the two other forms will "make up" for the selenite somehow, but I am no longer buying this item. Why risk adding the selenite form at all? I will enquire further but using a different form at the moment.

Think it is helping me

Posted on Mar 01, 2016

I think it is helping me in so many ways, so I am pleased with it. However, no way is this 228 doses?!?! It ran out quicker than expected (considering the 228 doses indicated in the product information), hence "only" 4 stars.

Really powerful

Posted on Feb 25, 2016

I have been taking for my teeth and bones and, after just a week or so of use at the recommended dose, I noticed my last wisdom tooth has just come up! (I am nearly 51) Frankly, I could have done without having to deal with an impacted wisdom tooth (currently damaging the opposing tooth), hence my 4 star review. Generally, Christopher's Original Formula products are all 5 stars!

Some dodgy ingredients

Posted on Feb 24, 2016

1 person found the following review helpful

Great that it contains sunflower (not soy) lecithin. But, it also contains "modified food starch" and "carrageenan" I am sensitive to the latter so I could not use this product and I had to give it to friends. They also could not take it, so it ended up in the bin. California Gold Nutrition, remove the carraggeenan please?

Good product, but expensive on iherb

Posted on Feb 07, 2016

This is a good product I have been taking for 2 years or so. Wish it had no eccipients and that the capsules were vcaps. However, recently I have had to change suppliers because iherb has become more expensive than alternative suppliers. Now buying elsewhere.

Has helped with indigestion, digestive congestion/discomfort, irritability

Posted on Jan 09, 2016

Really happy with this product, wish I had found it earlier and that it lasted longer. I take 2 with meals, 3x day as prescribed. It has helped remarkably reduce or eliminate indigestion, slow/sluggish digestion, irritability and constant digestive discomfort (I was already taking Betaine HCI and enzymes but was still feeling sluggish until I started taking this) Changed my rating to 4 starts, because iherb's price for this product is now higher than some of its competitors' :-(

Great Product but buy it elsewhere

Posted on Nov 14, 2015

2 people found the following review helpful

Great product, have been using it for a few years. Unfortunately, at the moment (Nov 2015), iherb does NOT offer a great price on it. It is currently $20.88 on iherb and $7 cheaper on another website... I recommend buying it elsewhere until iherb lowers its price.

100% magnesium bisglycinate (NOT buffered)

Posted on Nov 08, 2015

4 people found the following review helpful

I buy this because it contains no nasty eccipients and is 100% magnesium bisglycinate, NOT a buffered form with lots of magnesium oxide in it. Taste: I would not describe it as pleasant, but had not really noticed it frankly. I mix it with water, mix it well and drink it. I am however someone who drinks green powders/drinks all day. You might want to mix in a smoothie if the taste bothers you.

Slight nausea, containe fructose (not good) but overall good to boost immune system

Posted on Oct 31, 2015

Don't bite into these, let them dissolve in your mouth. They work well to boost my immune system when I feel I may be low in zinc or when travelling (particularly flying). However: - they make me slightly nauseous at times - I dislike the fructose in them. Nature's Way, please remove the fructose!!!
