Hello everyone. I'm a huge fan of treating the causes of diseases rather than just masking symptoms. I'm also a huge iHerb fan! I'm writing all my reviews here as someone that has read as much information on vitamin C, detoxification, diet, health and nutrition as I can and that is very slowly improving month by month from a very severe neurological disease (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) - thanks in part to wonderful books by various orthomolecular and holistic medicine experts - that has left me housebound and almost entirely bedbound for many years. Since I was just 19. I wish so much I had had this information early on in my disease, rather than coming to it more than 10 years in. Healing is so much easier the earlier you start it. But even if you're long-term very ill like me, there is real cause for hope with the right info + care. Real healing takes time, but is not impossible. It's the boring stuff that works; vitamins etc. Not the 'sexy' new and exotic stuff!

Great product

Posted on Aug 24, 2013

14 people found the following review helpful

Great source of vitamin A, and also copper and all the Bs. Much easier to ingest than actual liver! I wanted to know how much raw beef liver it took took to make a capsule of this product so I could work out my vitamin A intake. The company was very helpful and they replied: "It takes 2000 mg of fresh beef liver to make up one 500 mg capsule of Beef Liver Natural Glandular. We do not routinely test the vitamin A content, but we do know from our supplier from other project work they have done that freeze dried beef liver can contain up to 50,000 mcg’s of Retinol (Vitamin A) per 100 grams, which degrades naturally over about 5 months to around 20,000 mcg’s per gram."

Too low dose by far

Posted on Oct 02, 2012

12 people found the following review helpful

That 'natural C' is completely differnet to ascorbic acid is just complete guff. They act the same way in the body, except buying 'natural C' like this costs you hundreds of times more and make it very unlikely you'll ever take a dose big enough to do anything much for you at all. Ditch this and take 10 or more grams of the vitamin C the vitamin C experts and pioneers all use - ascorbic acid. This is the form of vitamin C that animals make in their livers and kidneys and that humans used to make in their livers and kidneys. Our bodies are primed to use this form of vitamin C! This product is fine to take alongside ascorbic acid..extra bioflavs are always good, but it is not enough by itself as the dose is far too low.

Love Thorne but not GMOs

Posted on Sep 22, 2012

10 people found the following review helpful

Thorne is one of the main go-to brands for supplements without many added nasties. It is disappointing their vitamin C is not GMO free. If this product beocmes GMO free I will start buying it again but for now this one is off my shopping list. The large capsule count on this product is great. Please make a GMO free version Thorne!

This is the best form of carnitine according to Dr Sinatra. I take this for Myalgic Enephalomyelitis and it really helps my heart problems. Improved the time I can stay upright hugely; from 10 minutes a day to 20 or so. Ubiquinol gave me another 10 too. Dr Sinatra explains that ubiquinol/CoQ10 works synergistically with carnitine, as does ribose and magnesium. He calls them the 'awesome foursome' of cardiac health.

Luckily I can tolerate these enzymes, as I have had some problems with other brands.

Finally soy-free E!

Posted on May 05, 2014

7 people found the following review helpful

This vitamin E is soy-free and made from sunflowers, plus it has good amounts of all 8 vitamin E types. If your vitamin E doesn't say it's made without soy, not just soy-free, then it was probably made with soy. I no longer buy the Carlson's and Unique E products for this reason. Unique E says it is soy-free, because they filter the soy proteins out later, but they do use soy to make it and it's not certified non-GMO soy either. Same with Carlson's. My only problem with this Mercola product is the very small capsule count in each bottle. It's way too small, I'm taking 3 a day so a bottle only lasts 10 days which is quite annoying. It's still by far the best safest purest vitamin E product I've found though and I'm so glad iHerb stocks it!

Fantastic simple multi

Posted on May 30, 2014

6 people found the following review helpful

This is a great product and the Thorne brand is very good quality. I love that it has coenzymated B2 and B6 as well as folate and B12 - that is so important. Even if you don't know if you have conversion issues such as MTHFR why not just take the activated forms anyway, it makes sense. I would prefer the calcium was left out and more magnesium added instead, and 120 capsules in a bottle, but overall the amounts of everything included are good. I buy this multi for my mum and dad.

Gorgeous

Nice spray bottle too. Watch out for products that say rose water but are really synthetic. This one is the real deal but some others are not! (I'm looking at you 'Home Health' brand!) This one is lovely and can be used in cooking, and for all sorts of household or personal care tasks. I especially like to spray it on my face when I feel a bit bleurgh or nauseous...it helps a tiny bit. It feels refreshing and smells nice. Spraying the synthetic one on your face is awful btw, and it tastes like bitter chemical perfume on your lips - very unpleasant. You have to go wash it off your lips right away. This spray also works well as a skin toner. Love this product and I have a bottle of it in every room!

Gave me a surprising boost

Posted on Jul 03, 2010

8 people found the following review helpful

I was taking quite a decent amount of oral B complex, so i was quite surprised by how much of a voost this product gave me wthin just a week of starting it. I suppose that means my body wasn't converting at least one of the B vitamins very well. I'd recommend anyone seriously ill try this product for a few weeks to see if you're absorbinb the standard B vitamins as well as you could be. The taste is quite nice too, though to make it a perfect product it would also contain activated folate (Metafolin). I may now try the B1 as s atand alone coenzymated sublingual, thank SN and iHerb!

Good product but not for me

Posted on May 02, 2012

8 people found the following review helpful

I started taking ribose early 2012 as part of Dr Stephen Sinatra's 'awesome foursome of cardiovascular health' (along with magnesium, carnitine and CoQ10) and because it was recommended by Dr Sherry Rogers for those with poor mitochondrial function. When I take CoQ10 (especially the reduced ubiquinol form), carnitine and magnesium it makes me feel more well. Less ill and like my body is struggling less with basic functions. I sleep better and longer, and my heartbeat feels stronger and less flutterly and weak, it takes more to bring me to a point of overexertion and if I do still seriously overexert, these things very much stop the relapse from being as severe and scary. (I have severe cardiac problems and neurological problems partly caused by poor mitochondrial function.) Even at higher doses of these things (plus B complex and vitamin C), they never feel anything like taking a stimulant would and never keep me awake or make me agitated. But I have found ribose to be quite different. I started ribose at a dose of 1 - 2 grams a day for about 2 weeks. I didn't feel much at this dose so I went slowly up to a 5 gram a day dose. After a few days I began to feel strange and a bit unrestful and anxious, but I wasn't sure if it was the ribose causing it so I kept going. The next day or two I knew something was really off and wrong. I couldn't sleep until 5 in the morning, found it really hard to get in a restful state of mind and spent hours so physcially tense that I was a hairs bredth away from gringing my teeth - something I have never done before or since. The pressure in my jaw just huge. No amount of mediation helped with the sleeping or the jaw tensing either. It was obviously a physical effect form the ribose that I had to wait to wear off. It felt like I had taken a huge dose of slow-release caffeine (or an illegal stimulant), but one which had a cumulative effect and built day by day. Took 3 days to wear off. 4 times I tried it, same thing happened.
