Great for bone strength and wound healing!

Posted on Oct 31, 2014

I use these to increase my bone strength. The tablets are a bit big - not a problem to me, but I thought I'd mention it. I take one tablet twice a week. This evens out to over 40 mg/day as suggested in the study (see below), and it's really cheap too. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. As allways, Now Foods deliver great value for less money! The bottle is double secured with both sealed snap lid and extra security seal on the bottle itself, both easy to open. ======================================================================================================= The so called "Framingham Offspring" study showed, that subjects with the highest silicon intake (over 40 mg/day) had the strongest bones and those with low intake (below 14 mg/day) had the weakest bones. A typical multivitamin contains 2 mg - way to low! Silicon also improves collagen formation in general and also wound healing! Some suggest making bone and joint broth soup as an alternative, but I know myself well enough to know, that I'll never get around getting it done, especially not an a regular basis.

Perfect time release function

I use Natrols melatonin almost every night, and it helps me get a good nights sleep. This product is superior to others because it releases an amount of melatonin right away to help you fall asleep, and then gradually releases the rest of the dosis to help you stay asleep for about 8 hours. I've never experienced any drowsiness in the morning. I take one tablet half an hour before bedtime. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. Melatonin is a GREAT invention!

US recommended daily amount is 150 mcg. This is very low, since iodine is not toxic, even in very high doses (20,000 times RDA). Seaweed-consuming cultures eat high amounts of iodine, and are generally long lived and healthy. Oddly, there are not done much clinical testing in this area but a lot of experiences and anecdotal accounts suggests, that high-dose iodine supplementation shows regression of chronic deseases. For instance, people in northern coastal areas af Japan get 50-80 mg a day - 500 times more than US recommended daily amount. A more reasonable amount is suggested to be 1 mg per day, and this is what I've been taking for a while with great success. This is about 10 drops. This Iodine from World Organic is completely without taste, so I just add 10 drops to a small glass of water. I'm perfectly happy with this product, and will purchase again when it runs low.

The bottle has a nice screw cap, safety seal is easy to remove and the capsules are regular sized. I take one capsule every day. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low.

The softgels are small and easy to swallow. I also like, that the filler is pure cold pressed olive oil. The bottle was deform when it arrived, but the package wasn't damaged, so it must have happened either at iHerb or during manufactoring. It's not a problem as such, as the safety seal was intact and the product seems OK. The bottle is relatively small, but it could easily have been even smaller to help the environment, since the small softgels only cover the bottom. I take one softgel every day. I take mine in the morning, because vitamin D is also known to affect daytime/nighttime rhythm. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. In modern life with indoor work, most people rarely expose their skin to the sun. It is suggested, that 80% of americans (and probably the rest of the world as well) are deficient i vitamin D, with severe health damage. Most adults should supplement with at least 2000 IU per day at summertime, and at least 4000 IU at winter.

It has a soft smell of cocoa butter to it, but barely noticeable. I find that my lips stay moist longer with this lip balm. I like it.

It has a sweet and very fine but distinct smell/taste of vanilla to it. I find that especially the smell lasts very long when your wear this lip balm. I like it.

I trust "the perfect health diet" in recommending 500 mg once a week. The body is perfectly able to store Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), so I prefer taking on big dose a week instead of smaller doses on a daily basis. It's both easyer and cheaper. I'm perfectly happy with this product, and will purchase again when it runs low.

There is not much research to be found determining the optimum intake of chromium and vanadium. It is suggested that a weekly supplement of 2-600 mcg chromium and 50 mcg vanadium is a reasonable dose. Therefore I take two capsules a week. This way, a bottle will last almost a year. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low.

Tablets are a little large, not that it's a problem to me. I take 500 mcg B12 only once a week, because the human body has sufficient stores for a week or more. This is well above RDA, but since B12 is water-soluble, any excess is just excreted in urine at no risk. They have added 10% extra to the bottle at no extra cost, and it will last me a couple of years. (Expiration date is sept. 2015).
