Great for bone strength and wound healing!

Posted on Oct 31, 2014

5 people found the following review helpful

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.

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.

RDA is set to 0.9 mg per day, but this is much too low! It should more likely be 2-4 mg per day! I take one tablet once a week, which evens out to 3 mg per day. A bottle of 120 tablets lasts more than two years. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. I feel safe using copper from Source Naturals, as this brand have been proven OK in tests.

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.

I take 100 mg B2 only once a week, because the human body has sufficient stores for a week or more. This is well above RDA, but since B2 is water-soluble, any excess is just excreted in urine at no risk. This bottle with 100 capsules will last me a couple of years. I'm perfectly satisfied with this product, and will buy again.

Cheap, but important supplement!

Posted on Oct 31, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

I take one of theese every day. Capsules are small and easy to swallow, and I like that the jar is easy to open, and relatively small, which is good for both the environment and my storage space. It's not rocket science, just plain and simple vitamin K, and I think most brands will do just fine. I have chosen Thompsons, because it's cheap and the company has been around forever. I'm perfectly happy with this product, and will purchase again when it runs low. You should take this with a meal containing fat, since vitamin K is fat soluble. ======================================================================================================= Most americans (and probably most people world-wide) are deficient in vitamin K, according to several studies, and this is plain stupid, since vitamin K is cheap and supplementation is without risks, even in high doses. In my opinion, everyone should consider supplementing. Vitamin K has no significant storage pool in the body, so deficiency can devolop within days. Since no negative effect is known and even extremely high doses (500 times bigger than this product) are considered safe, I gladly spend a couple of bucks on this supplement.

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!

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.

Zink deficiency is quite common. RDA is around 10 mg a day, but new clinical trials suggest it is better to consume 15-30 mg a day. A normal diet yields at most 10-15 mg, so supplementing 5-10g a day is adviced. I take one of theese zink tablets once a week, which evens out to about 7 mg a day. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. This will take a couple of years though, since the bottle contains 110 tablets (10% extra in the bottle at no extra cost).

Great against sore throat

Posted on Oct 31, 2014

Fisherman's Friend is also my friend, and has been it for years. I use their lozenges both as cough suppressants and against sore throat. Even bad breath is cured instantly with theese. iHerbs price is the best, and I will return for more again and again :-)
