Great for bone strength and wound healing!

Posted on Oct 31, 2014

1 person 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.

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.

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.

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).

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).

NHANES surveys have shown that most Americans (and probably most people world wide) are deficient in magnesium. RDA is about 400 mg per day, and to reach this, most people will benefit from supplementing. I take one of these tablets every day. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. Magnesium is known to have a calming effect, and taking them at night can promote sleep and night time rhythm.

Folic acid is primarily found in liver, giblets, egg yolks, seaweed, green leafy vegetables and mushrooms. Since I don't eat a lot of those foods, I've chosen to supplement. A normal intake is considered to be around 3-400 mcg, so I take one of these tablets every day. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low.

Good quality, low price!

This is one of the most reasonable priced fish oils I have seen, and I trust Madre Labs. The softgels are transparent, normal sized and without taste. To test the fishoil inside, I crushed a softgel between my teeths. As expected it didn't taste particularly nice, but the taste was fresh, meaning that the totox-value is at an acceptable level. The problem with softgels are, that you don't taste the oil inside, and tests have shown, that quite a lot of fish oil softgels contain spoiled fishoil with hight totex-values. This one seems fine though.
