Probably really good but chia seeds also very effective...

Posted on Jul 08, 2011

3 people found the following review helpful

I don't suffer from constipation but I have been having strange bowel movements and digestive complaints since picking up a stomach infection while on holiday. I found a couple of free samples of this lying around the house and decided to give them a try. Taking just one capsule at night, away from food, (and eating plenty of fruit and vegetables, including chia seeds, plus drinking lots of water) gives me an ideal stool movement next day: easily passed, soft stool, well-formed, right size (read the book by Paul Chek to know more) without any pain at any time, no grumbling tummy (usually a problem for me) or any side effect. If you are sensitive, try taking just one a day, at night and try this rather than one of the others (harsher-sounding) colon conditioners. iHerb great as usual. NOTE: I have been also taking chia seeds and it could be that it is the chia seeds that are having this great regulatory effect instead! In any case, this product did not hurt and seems to have helped.

Probably great pre-workout but not at bedtime...

Posted on Mar 13, 2010

3 people found the following review helpful

I was taking this to stimulate my GH and to cope with a period of intense stress and physical activity, so was taking at night. PLUSES: It definitely helped me go through weeks of hard work without a day off. It managed to do this with just two teaspoons a night. (though I was also using L-Theanine and 5-HTP) MINUSES: - I find the product far too sweet!!! - I would be starving in the morning and think I have put on some mass (also fat). Mass increase was not one of my goals (I am a girl with good body fat % and enviable body mass as it is). Now I will try taking it pre-workout instead (e.g. before my spinning class) so that the sugars in the product can be put to some good use! Would probably buy again but can we PLEASE have a version without sugar to take at night.

Not bad but why does it contain GUAR GUM?

Posted on May 07, 2015

3 people found the following review helpful

Guar gum has been known to cause digestive issues in at least some people. Most people taking S. Boulardii will have digestive issues and will be taking it for this issue, so really there is no good reason to include GUAR GUM in this product, except sloppiness/shortcuts and low quality. Disappointed in Now Fods...

Great low dosage but cannot use it

Posted on Oct 11, 2014

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased because I was looking for a low dosage of Betain HCI plus someone mentioned "easy to swallow". Really? I just looked at the rough edges of the not-that-small tablet and though "there is no way I can swallow this stuff". I am scared of choking on it. So I have to make a really gritty protein powder mixture to swallow it. I would have preferred a capsule and a solution that does not have stearic acid in it.

OK as a moisturiser, not for internal use (for me)

Posted on Dec 03, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Been using as a moisturiser and it's ok (if you can stand the smell). However, taking it internally, it did nothing for me. It did not stop heartburn, in fact it probably made it worse, due to the citric acid. I am now suffering badly with fire-like burning in my stomach... been lasting for days now. I would like a version without citric acid!!! I think that would have more potential. Generally like this brand and the fact they use minimal additives.

Calcium carbonate?

Posted on Jun 20, 2015

3 people found the following review helpful

Not used regularly for long-term digestive issues (previous H. Pylori infection, GERD etc), because it does not help at all in the short term (made things worse). It seems that it is weaker than Source Naturals' which could be because they recommend taking two capsules twice a day (while Doctor's Best recommend just one capsule twice a day), the PepZin content in one capsule is the same. Other concern: The Doctor's Best PepZin GI bottle I purchased a year ago lists "calcium carbonate" as the first ingredient in the "other ingredients" list. Now, that is an unwelcome discovery, as this ingredient is used as an antacid and so could well impair digestion. Iherb does not list calcium carbonate, so you may want to double-check before you purchase. Hope this is useful.

Purchased in error - contains SUCRALOSE!!!

Posted on Jan 03, 2015

3 people found the following review helpful

I thought these were healthy gelatin bars and I wanted to up my intake of gelatin for its health benefits. Expensive for just powder pouches. One star because they also contain SUCRALOSE (bad for you) as well as too much sugar (also bad for you). This information was not given in the main product description. Unhappy.

origin: China -> AVOID at all costs !!!

Posted on Jan 24, 2014

3 people found the following review helpful

Need I say more? This comes from China, a heavily polluted country You just CANNOT TRUST that it is free of contaminants or good quality. What a shame! Do yourself a favour and avoid this product and any other "superfoods" from China, except perhaps goji berries (as they come from the mountainous regions) Hope this information helps you keep good health!

It seems to contain NO propylene glycol

Posted on Jan 15, 2013

All the other propolis extracts I have seen contain propylene glycol and other stuff I'd rather not take. This one does NOT and is therefore my favourite.

Love it... for energy

Posted on Jun 24, 2013

2 people found the following review helpful

I have been taking this for energy (just two in the morning) and it makes a huge difference for me. It may raise blood pressure, but that's ok for me, as I tend to have low blood pressure. Unhappy that price has gone up. Vitacost currently sells this for $4.99. Why are iherb prices less competitive these days?
