Value Added Product Reviews by a Trained Herbalist

I have been into nutrition and natural healing for many years. I always try to attack the root cause of any problem versus only addressing symptoms (the curent Western Medical model). I also have formal training in herbalism. I started to use iherb in 2011 and have been a repeat customer since. Their website is informative, fast and user friendly. I have found their service to be accurate and timely. As a public service, I share my experiences (good, bad or neutral) with products I know. I try to keep them brief but always with substance. Let's be honest, 1 sentence reviews are mostly useless. If you found my reviews helpful, consider indicating that by clicking on the "YES" button. Finally, if you are thinking of placing your first order from iHerb, take note of the special value added information near the top of this page. Peace and good health.

Good Homeopathic product

Posted on Aug 23, 2013

12 people found the following review helpful

This product has worked well for me and a friend I gave it to. It helped with dryness and redness. It works best for acute issues. If you have chronic dry eyes you need to look for the root cause. Some people have dry eyes because are lacking in Omega 3 oils. Try increasing your intake of fish oils and see if that solves or improves you issues. Go to my homepage to see my recommendation for a good value on a quality omega 3 fish oil. The reason I gave this 4 stars is because it only has a recommended 30 day shelf life after opening. For a 30 day supply it seems to be quite a bit of product. Most people will end up throwing much of it away. I wish they offered it in a smaller bottle for about half the price. For those who complained they could not control the dropper I would suggest they slightly squeeze the plastic neck to force the drop out. It may take a bit of practice but it is achievable.

Great Natural oral health product

Posted on Jun 27, 2013

12 people found the following review helpful

I have used this product for about a year and my gum health is excellent. It is a cost effective way to help with and avoid gum and gum/tooth line issues. I have shared this with several friends and they have all enjoyed the improvements they have seen in their gum health. This is no substitute for good oral hygiene maintenance but it is an excellent adjunct to what you may already do. It may even prevent some expensive and painful periodontal work down the road. One of my friends is allergic to eucalyptus and can't use this so be aware of the ingredients before you use it.

Excellent Liquid Aloe product

Posted on Apr 17, 2013

10 people found the following review helpful

This is an excellent liquid aloe organic product. It is processed in such a way that it preserves the best features of aloe and removes the chemical that can give you very loose stools(aloin). This allows you to drink more of it and reap the healing benefits. If you have a serious digestive track problem with inflammation this may be what you need. It will not give you or add to any diarrhea you may be experiencing. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the high price. It is a unique product and I have yet to see something similar competing with it. I just wish iherb could negotiate a better discount from the MSRP. If you have a serious digestive track problem with inflammation this may be what you need. It will not give you or add to any diarrhea existing you may be experiencing. This product also has a variation of it that includes many anti viral and immune building herbs such as cats claw. That is also an excellent product that should be considered if you have a weak immune system or an infection going on.

2 stars becaue it has Carrageenan and Sodium coco-Sulfate

Posted on Jun 27, 2013

10 people found the following review helpful

I like the taste and the fact that it does not have fluoride. But it contains carrageenan and sodium coco-sulfate. Carageenan is a somewhat controversial substance made from seaweed. There is some research out saying that it is upsetting to the GI track. They use it as an inexpensive thickener. Sodium Coco Sulfate is just a highly, highly diluted form of Sodium laurel sulfate (SLS). If you're allergic to one, you're still allergic to the other. This is a trick the industry is using. So saying it is SLS free is a bit deceptive. So be aware. If you found this helpful, go to my homepage and read my other value added reviews. Peace and good health.

Kudos to King Arthur

This is one of the best store bought gluten free baking mixes I have ever used. The pancakes came out great. I made them with unsweeted and unflavored almond milk, range free eggs and olive oil. I cooked them with raw organic coconut oil. Add some banana or blue berries and you will have a treat and still be gluten free. Folks, use real maple syrup and not the fake stuff with high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors. If you liked this review kindly indicate that by clicking on the YES button.

It works as stated

Posted on Apr 16, 2013

9 people found the following review helpful

I used this product on an oil stain on a cotton shirt and it worked. I followed the simple instructions. It even has a brush built in to the top which makes it easier to work in to the stain. It is reasonably priced for what it is. If you found this review helpful, kindly visit my iHerb home page by clicking on my handle name above. There you can read my other value added reviews.

Dr. Murray has a great book

Posted on Apr 16, 2013

9 people found the following review helpful

This brief book on Stress, anxiety and insomnia is a excellent read for anyone with any of these issues and does not want to take the drug route. He gets right to the point with some very practicle approaches to all of these issues. There is also some excellent information on blood sugar management as that can be a cause of insomnia and of course other health issues. He suggests many natural products which you can get at your local health food store or on line at iherb. I have tried some personnally and recommended some of the very ideas he shares and they often are effective. Remember nothing works on everyone 100% of the time as we are all complicated individuals. You can get this book for FREE with any order. If you found this review helpful, kindly visit my iHerb home page by clicking on my handle name above. You will see my other value added reviews.

Good for your liver, heart and more

Posted on Apr 17, 2013

9 people found the following review helpful

Most people don't need to supplement with the amino acid taurine as it is plentiful in the body. But it is good for detoxing the liver and it can have a calming effect at night to help with sleep. It is a precursor to making bile. It is also recomeded for those with weak hearts. I found this to be a good Taurine product and I like the 1 gram capules as I take one or two grams at night. This makes it efficient. If you found this review helpful, kindly visit my iHerb home page by clicking on my handle name above. There you can read my other value added reviews. Peace and good health.

I like it but it is only 70% Organic

Posted on Sep 01, 2013

9 people found the following review helpful

I like this product and I use it often. I like how it cleans and how it leaves my hair. I like that it does not have parabens and SLS. I like that they don't test it on animals. I like that they use essential oils for the fragrances vs. synthetics. I like a lot of things about this. I just wish it was more than 70% organic. Hence it gets 4 stars. Maybe Avalon will work on this and improve the product. If you found this review helpful kindly visit my homepage and see more value added reviews. Also "Yes" helpful votes are appreciated.

Good prebiotic

Posted on Apr 17, 2013

9 people found the following review helpful

NAG is a pre-biotic amoung other things. It is food for your gut flora to thrive on. For your gut flora to be healthy and repopulate, it needs food. This is how it helps your intestinal health. Take his on an empty stomach with your probiotic with plenty of water. I have found this product to work well for digestive health. FOS is another prebiotic that you can take to help with your gut flora. You can also eat Bananas, Leeks and Onions as they are all prebiotics. I have found it has helped with my digestive track function. This is also a precursor to Hylelonic(sp?) acid which is what helps to lubricates your joints. Many with arthritis take this. I don't have that condition so I cannot give a personal endoursement for that use, but I have read good things about it.

Good product but it is not Organic- Liver warning is over blown

Posted on Aug 07, 2013

9 people found the following review helpful

First of all the liver warning on the back is just a CYA for the company. Kava root is very safe for moderate to infrequent use. The issues have arisen when the aerial parts of the plant are use or if large doses of the root are consumed daily for 8 or more weeks. Sure, if you have liver damage you may want to avoid it as you would alcohol and most NSAIDs. Herbal teas that are pre packaged and bagged like this are typically weaker and of lower quality than what you would get at an herb shop or purchased directly from a herb farm. So you need to keep this in perspective. I have found yogi teas to be of very good quality for the class they are in. My biggest disappointment with this tea is that it is not organic or wild harvested. Some of their teas are. I do like the taste and the convenience of a bag sometimes is nice. For a relaxation effect use 2 or 3 bags and steep covered for 15 minutes or longer. If you found this review helpful kindly visit my Iherb homepage for move value added reviews. Helpful votes are appreciated. Peace and good health.

Good deal for the price.

Posted on Jun 27, 2013

9 people found the following review helpful

This is a decent product as long as iherb is discounting it. It does have Astaxanthan which is a very powerful antioxidant. It is used in many eye formulas and is believed to be able to cross the blood brain barrier therefore providing good free radical clean up in the brain. Krill oil will also have some Astaxanthan in it as well. I prefer to use the Carlson's fish oil products as reviewed on my home page because you get more DHA and Carlson's goes to great lengths to make sure the oils are fresh and contaminant free. Carlson's does not have astaxanthan but I prefer to get the best overall fish oil for the omega 3 content and get my anti-oxidants elsewhere. Keep your fish oils refrigerated or in a cool location to prevent them from going rancid.
