Aloha, I'm a geneticist and I'm tangentially interested in supplements and natural living. I've tried about, erm, a gazillion products and most of them I never re-order. But there are several that I have found to work, and work well. So if you're interested in my opinions, please feel free to peruse my reviews and look for items that I have given four- or five-stars — those are the products that actually work and that I order again and again from iHerb. Mahalo nui loa, and aloha!

Convenient and Potent

Posted on Nov 16, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

Barlean's makes dependably great products, and their Olive Leaf formulations are some of the very best available. When I need immune support, I take Barlean's Olive Leaf Complex, and the supplement's high concentration of Oleuropein — the principal active ingredient in Olive Leaf — usually has me soon feeling healthy and rejuvenated. I generally take the liquid version of Barlean's Olive Leaf Complex, but when travelling or simply for the sake of convenience, I like Barlean's Olive Leaf Complex in Softgel formulation. In addition to Olive Leaf's immune-strengthening properties it also seems to lower blood pressure, and even though I'm not hypertensive it makes me feel relaxed and slightly drowsy, which is why I take a larger amount at night, before bed, and relatively little in the morning. Those with delicate circulatory systems may want to closely monitor their blood pressure, or consult with their medical professionals.

Helps Joints and Skin

Posted on Oct 25, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

I like the formulation containing both Hyaluronic Acid and MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane, a kind of Sulfur). It's been my experience, after several months, that my back and knee feel much better, and seem to be cracking and aching less than in recent memory. Even better, my skin feels great; It's as though the whole body, inside and out, is being moisturized and lubricated. In general I've had good experiences with Now Foods products, and regarding this specific product, I'm a satisfied customer.

"WOW!"

Posted on Oct 24, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

I've been taking Now Foods, Maca, for several weeks and "Wow!" is really what I find myself saying all the time. I've been amazed at the pleasant buzz of energy that I get about one-half hour after taking a capsule, a shot of energy that gently tapers off throughout the day. My workout training is better and, in general, I feel better when taking this product. Another pleasant bonus: These capsules smell wonderful, in a fresh, berry-like sort of way. I have tried taking it in the late afternoon and it's not been very successful; I've had trouble falling asleep. I have noticed, also, that if I take Maca continuously for several weeks its efficacy starts to diminish. I think it's best to take it for shorter periods — periods of maybe a few weeks at a time — then to switch to another supplement with similar effects for another period, before returning to Maca.

Your Liver Will Say "Mahalo!"

Posted on Nov 08, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

I've been taking Kroeger Herb Co, Complete Concentrates, Milk Thistle to ameliorate symptoms from migraine headaches. I have noticed a reduction in the severity of migraines, and I've noticed that a dull, nagging pain in my right side is gone when I take this product. I'm convinced that Milk Thistle is working for me, and I appreciate that Kroeger Herb Co doesn't use fillers or additives in this product. My only wish is that I knew exactly where the Milk Thistle was being grown and processed, and that its production was certified organic by a respected institution.

Not Great, for Me at Least

Posted on Aug 22, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

In general, Gaia products are flawless, in both formulation and in quality. I have little doubt in the quality of this product, but the formulation doesn't agree with me at all. I have taken most of the constitutent ingredients in the past with few problems, but Para-Shield makes me feel quite ill, and not in a good, parasite-purging kind of way. I also originally ordered Para-Shield so that I could simplify the process of a general parasite cleanse, but after using this product, I realized that I like having the latitude to change the exact formulation that I need, and that comes from having the cleanse components in single-ingredient capsules or tinctures — not from an all-in-one capsule. In my opinion, this product is best suited to specific and acute parasitic gastrointestinal infection, rather than for use as a general (eg periodical) parasite cleanse.

Almost great…

Posted on Feb 11, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

Perhaps I have a different body chemistry than other reviewers, but these wipes are really tough on my hands. If I happen to use a few wipes in a given day, I'll notice that same evening that my hands are chapped and cracked and dry. So if you find yourself in the same situation, stay well moisturized! With that said, the benefits are still so great so as to outweigh the occasional dry hand; Importantly, there is no testing on animals. Additionally, there is no Benzene or Isopropyl Alcohol in this product, either. I think that the packaging could be made better by decreasing the amount of plastic relative to the number of wipes, maybe by increasing the wipe count, which would make it a better value, also.

It Does Work, but…

Posted on Nov 11, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

Labrada Nutrition HumanoGrowth does work — at least to some extent — but I think that there are better alternatives. The important ingredients in this product's formulation are essentially the ingredients of raw egg whites: beta-lactoglobulin and serum albumin. Beta-lactoglobulin and serum albumin contain gamma-Glutamylcysteine, which is a precursor of glutathione. It is formed by gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase and used by glutathione synthetase to form glutathione, something that is crucial to overall health. The only other source of these ingredients — beta-lactoglobulin and serum albumin — is undenatured whey protein. After trying both HumanoGrowth and undenatured whey protein, I prefer the latter; In undenatured whey I'm getting beta-lactoglobulin, serum albumin, and immunomodulators, in addition to a hefty amount of quality protein, all at a comparable price. I probably won't reorder.

Genuine Vetiver

Posted on Dec 21, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

Maroma, Encens d’ Auroville, Vetiver incense really does smell of Vetiver, which is unusual since most "Vetiver" products smell only remotely like that substance. This isn't an especially sweet scent — it's more earthy and grounding — and to my nose this incense is solidly in the "Oriental" category of scents; According to Maroma it contains oils of Vetiver, Lemongrass, and Cedarwood.

A Great Choice for Men

Posted on Dec 21, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

I've found Source Naturals, Swedish Flower Pollen to be effective for Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), as well as being a good general tonic for the male reproductive organs. In my experience, the effects were noticeable within a few days. I like the manufacturer, Source Naturals, and I think that the price is about right for the quality and quantity provided.

A Great Value

Posted on Nov 26, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

When doing laundry, I alternate between Bio Kleen, Laundry Liquid, All Temperature and Method, Laundry Detergent, Free + Clear. Both detergents are great at cleaning filthy laundry without toxic chemicals and artificial fragrances, and neither product is tested on animals. It would seem, however, that Bio Kleen, Laundry Liquid is a much better value (at less than half the price). I appreciate that it's so concentrated — it makes toting the bottle to the laundry much less cumbersome. The suggested use is "Only 1 oz Per Load!", but I always use more, not because it's necessary, but because of my own compulsion to see a lot of sudsing action. In all, I'm a satisfied customer, and I will re-order.

Another Gaia Success

Posted on Aug 21, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

This is yet another Gaia product that I love! In the past, I've been a bit suspicious of herbal tinctures generally, since they seem to vary wildly in constitution and quality. Gaia's Black Walnut tincture is potent, and it tastes rich and surprisingly fresh. If you're looking for Black Walnut to use as part of a parasite cleanse, look no further.

Good for Acute Infections

Posted on Sep 05, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

I have used this with success when dealing with short-term, acute infections; I wouldn't take it daily, but that's just my personal preference, since I use other products for daily immune support. Beyond use by humans, I opened up the capsules and used them while caring for some sick, listless, abandoned kittens, and it seemed to perk them right up. One cat's lingering infection was cleared up in only a few days. I'll probably keep a bottle in my refrigerator for emergencies.
