Great for bone strength and wound healing!

Posted on Oct 31, 2014

7 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.

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.

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.

Cheap, but important supplement!

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!

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.

Recommended product - (but remember to balance with sufficient vitamin D as well)

Posted on Oct 31, 2014

2 people found the following review helpful

The optimal daily intake of vitamin A is around 10,000 IU. If you eat a lot of egg yolks and liver you might get sufficient amounts. Personally, I don't eat eggs every day, and I never eat liver. Therefore, I have decided to supplement with theese softgels. (Vitamin A should be balanced with vitamin D however, because a daily dose of 10,000 IU vitamin A is not healthy if one is deficient in vitamin D - remember to get 4000 IU of vitamin D). I take one serving of this vitamin A every day. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low.

Optimal selenium intake is 200-400 mcg/day. It's primarily found in meats and seafood. If you eat a lot of protein from different sources, you probably don't need supplementing, but otherwise 200 mcg a day is a perfect level for supplementing. Don't supplement with more than 2-400 mcg, as selenium and other metals are toxic when overdosed. In order to let the body regulate levels, it's recommended to drink plenty of water and excercise regularly to produce sweat. I take one serving every day. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low.

Molybdenum defieciency is not that common, but this mineral is often included in multivitamins to be on the safe side. Since I don't tage multivitamins, I supplement with one of theese tablets pr. week. That's really cheap, since this bottle will last me a couple of years this way. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low.

Important supplement for everybody, especially lowcarbers and people who sweat a lot.

The bottle is double secured with both sealed snap lid and extra security seal on the bottle itself, both easy to open. The powder is easily dissolved in any liquid. It tastes less salty than regular salt, but it's difficult to mask the taste completely. I just pour it in a small glass of water, stir and drink fast. I know some people who uses it as a healthy alternative to regular salt in their cooking. I take one serving every day. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. ======================================================================================================= Potassium is primarily found in vegetables, and most people does not get enough. This is especially true, if you sweat a lot or eat lowcarb. Most people should cut down on regular salt and up the potassium intake. (Lowcarbers should actually eat more regular salt and even more potassium).
