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!

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.

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.

A Winner!

Posted on Sep 17, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

Initially, I was taking L-Citrulline to keep my hands and feet warm, which are otherwise always cool and sometimes clammy. Well, my hands and feet are warmed up, but additionally, I find L-Citrulline to be very relaxing, which is why I recommend taking it after working out or — even better — before bed. What's more, it's helped with the symptoms of Willis-Ekbom disease/Restless legs syndrome (RLS).

Pretty Good so far

Posted on Aug 21, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

I'm not normally crazy for scented products, and this one is no exception, but at least this scent isn't totally obnoxious and dissipates relatively quickly. The good: vegan, not tested on animals, DMAE (Dr Perricone's Rx), 1% alpha lipoic acid, and contains C-Ester; It moisturizes pretty well and isn't very greasy, even in the humid tropics. The (not so) bad: I haven't seen it to be especially effective for even the finest of lines or wrinkles. So, my advice: consider it simply a well-priced, slightly-off-puttingly-scented, cruelty-free moisturizer without a lot of nasty toxic commercial chemicals and with some specialized ingredients that you do want.

Very Relaxing, but Proceed with Caution

Posted on Oct 24, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

Within two hours of taking 100mg of Doctor's Best, Best 5-HTP I was feeling very relaxed, something like how I feel after yoga or a massage. I slept well that first night, except for strangely intense and sometimes disturbing dreams. Several days on and I haven't noticed a greatly elevated mood, but I do feel very relaxed without feeling drowsy. Depression — of the type caused by brain chemistry — can be a result of a defecit of the neurotransmitters Dopamine, Norepinephrine, and Serotonin. Since 5-HTP works by stimulating the human body's own production of Serotonin, I think that a person must have depressed levels of Serotonin in order for this product to make much difference in their overall quality of life, since depression can involve other neurotransmitters. To those who already take prescription anti-depressants: Please be careful! Consult with your medical professional, since 5-HTP — together with SSRIs — can create dangerous levels of Serotonin in the brain and cause Serotonin Syndrome.

Good Product, Shame About the Awful Packaging

Posted on Oct 24, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

I really would like to give this product five stars, but I think that even four stars is being very (maybe too) generous. The powder itself is unflavored, rich, and tastes something like slightly funky butter. It mixes slowly into any liquid I've tried so be patient, and after many trials I have found that it mixes the most smoothly and tastes best with coconut milk. The packaging is awful: Thin, cheap and the safety seal is poorly designed; The screw-top is not especially well fitting and accumulates powder and is great for creating a mess. It is so difficult to find a good undenatured whey protein powder, so I'm happy to have this one — for now. But when something better comes along — a better powder, with better packaging, and with a more reasonable price — I will happily ditch Well Wisdom, Vital Whey, Natural. I have no brand loyalty in this case.

Best Apple Chips!

Posted on Oct 24, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

Bare Fruit, Cinnamon Apple Chips make a great snack. They're very filling and are baked, not fried. I have no real complaints about the product per se, but about the size and price: 2.6 oz is too small and I would prefer that iherb sell the 14 oz size instead.

It's Convenient, With Some Drawbacks

Posted on Mar 04, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

I like to take Wheat Germ Oil for reproductive and immune system support as well as help for my skin and hair, and it performs well for my purposes. I know people that have had great success in treating their hypertension and hypercholesterolemia with Wheat Germ Oil. I give this product four stars and not five because I haven't found it to be nearly as effective as whole wheat germ, and not even as good as liquid Wheat Germ Oil. However, it is very convenient and relatively inexpensive. One piece of advice: Keep this supplement in the refrigerator; It will keep it from becoming rancid.

A Poweful Diuretic

Posted on Nov 16, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

Michael's Naturopathic, Kidney Factors contains the potent diuretics Celery Seed, Gravel Root, Juniper Berry, Buchu Leaf and Uva Ursi Leaf — among other active ingredients — and it's convenient to find this product's ingredients together in one tablet. The most noticeable effect is diuresis, but I've also noticed a significant calming and relaxing effect when taking this product; I suspect that what I describe as physical relaxation (alternately described by others as "dizziness" and "sleepiness") comes largely from the L-Glycine included in this formulation. Be careful when taking this product, especially for the first time; If my experience has been typical, I suggest taking the first tablet at night, when getting ready for bed, so that any dizziness or drowsiness will happen while at home rather than in potentially dangerous or embarrassing situations.

Not Very Impressive

Posted on Feb 22, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Vetiver is one of my favorite scents and so I was excited to find this "Vetiver"-scented laundry detergent. Upon opening the bag, the product doesn't smell much like Vetiver, and when taking my laundry from the dryer, there's no scent whatsoever. Moreover, this detergent wasn't even so great at cleaning my laundry. I'll finish off the bag of this product that I purchased, but I won't re-order it. In the future I'll return to my usual laundry detergent and I'll go back to adding a small amount of Vetiver essential oil to my laundry's rinse cycle.

Not A Pleasant Experience At All

Posted on Nov 26, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

I thought that Source Naturals, Male Response might make me a bit more libidinous and possibly more energetic. Well, it failed on both of those counts, but it did make me: anxious; headachy; sweaty; chilly and hot simultaneously; and it gave me heart palpitations and it also elevated my blood pressure. Perhaps for some men this product might produce positive effects with few negative side-effects, but for me it was an unpleasant, unproductive experience. I'll avoid this product and it's constituent active ingredients in the future.

Excellent!

Posted on Nov 12, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Olympian Labs Inc., Pea Protein, Chocolate is some of the best protein I've had. Its amino acid profile is good, especially in that it's not hugely weighted towards Glutamic acid, and the amounts of Arginine and Lysine are roughly equal. When preparing this product, it mixes fairly well but the resulting substance is more like a runny pudding than a traditional protein drink. I find it quite sweet — it has the oddly lingering sweetness of synthetic sweeteners, in this case xylitol — and it's somewhat chocolatey. One thing I also like is that this protein is not derived from any animal, not even from milk; To me, it's a nice change to have protein that's only plant-based, and non-GMO at that. My only wish: That this product were certified as organic.
