Value Added Product Reviews by a Trained Herbalist

New to iHerb? Use coupon code KAB400 for up to $5.00 off your first order.


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 current Western Medical model). I also have formal training in herbalism. I started using 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 my reviews 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. I hope you enjoy the value I add to your iHerb experience. Peace and good health!

One of the most important supplements anyone can take

Posted on Apr 16, 2013

36 people found the following review helpful

Dr. Oz says that if he could only take one supplement this would be it. Omega 3 Fish Oils. Good for your heart, brain, joints, digestive track. And probably more. I like the Carlson brand as they are very carefull about heavy metal contamination and freshness. Don't buy a huge amount at anytime as they are susceptable to going rancid. You can also keep them in the fridge to help extend self life. iherb is very good about always having fresh product so keep that in mind when buying oils.

Good for your liver, heart and more

Posted on Apr 17, 2013

17 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.

Good value and great Glutathione booster

Posted on Jul 14, 2013

17 people found the following review helpful

Many good reviews here on this NAC product so I will keep it brief. I take this as a Glutathione(aka GHS, a very potent antioxidant) booster. Oral Glutathione supplements don't work! Therefore by taking the precursor NAC you support your body to produce more of it. I take one in the AM and one in the PM on an empty stomach. I like that this has some selenium in it. Just make sure your total selenium supplementation does not exceed 400 mcg per day. L-Glutamine is another precursor to GHS and some people will also add that to their GHS boosting regiment. Anyone with a health issue should consider boosting their GHS as they would likely benefit. NOW makes quality products and this is a good value here on iherb for a 600mg vcap.

I like all of the Thorne B complex formulars

Posted on May 07, 2016

17 people found the following review helpful

I use this particular formular when I can not get the Thorne Basic B complex. The extra B-5 is good to help support the adrenals. But make sure you also take a good amount of vitamin C for your adrenals as well. The Adrenals need plenty of vit C and a bit of sea salt in your water along with the B5. Don't take the C all at once. Spread it out through the day. When I am taking the Basic B complex I often add a single 500 mg B5 to help my adrenals when I am feeling run down. Just don't take it too late in the day or it may keep you from sleeping well. I also like that Thorne uses folic acid and not folate and methylcobalamin form of B 12 vs. the cyanocobalamin which is not easily converted to the active form by some. Thorne is strictly against using GMO ingredients. I have written much on the Thorne B Basic product which this formula is based upon. Go to my iherb page and read that review and many other value added reviews. If you found this review helpful kindly click the YES button. Peace and good health!

Great Natural oral health product

Posted on Jun 27, 2013

17 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.

Very Good Results so far

Posted on Jun 27, 2013

16 people found the following review helpful

I bought this for a friend who is currently getingt B-12 shots. Because this is sublingual it gets absorbed directly into he blood and avoids the digestive system. Some people are missing a cofactor required to absorb B12. This cofactor is called intrinsic factor. These folks can not get B12 from food. The methyl form of B12 is the reduced form and is a preferred choice. The other common form is cyanocobalamin which must be converted to the methyl form to be utilized. Some people have trouble with this conversion process and thus don't get much if any benefit from taking it. So far my friend has said he has more energy by taking one 5g lozenge a day. He said he may bump it up to one in the morning and one in the afternoon. It is unclear right now if he can eliminate getting the shot but he is feeling better in between shots and he may be able to extend the time in between. Taking a daily lozenge is much easier and cheaper than getting a shot at the doctors office every months or so. So if you are in this state, give it a try. Also, it is good to supplement with a good B-complex with 400 mcg of methyl Folate as that is also needed to fully utilize B12. You want as much in your favor as possible.

I have seen results

Posted on May 12, 2014

31 people found the following review helpful

I have recommended this product to 3 people so far and they all experienced a positive results. Three for Three is pretty good! Of this group two people had a brain injury due to a blow to the head. They have been suffering with brain fog and slow thinking. They both reported clearer thinking and better overall cognition. I also recommended it to a senior who was complaining of poor cognition. She also felt it gave her some benefits. I would not say this is better or worse than organically cultivated or wild crafted herbs like Ginko or Gotu Kola. I think they all can work and it just depends on a persons constitution as to what will work best. This is true of everything, but I feel this needs to be constantly communicated as people often expect one silver bullet to solve their issues forever. Vinpocetine has also reportly helped with vertigo and hearing loss. This does not surprise me as it improves blood flow to the brain. I would not hesitate to try this for cognition issues. The literature reports people safely taking up to 40mg per day. If you found this review helpful kindly click the YES button.

A very good alternative to NSAID

Posted on Jul 04, 2013

15 people found the following review helpful

This product has helped me with inflamation in soft tissues like my muscles, ligaments and tendons. In general I find Curcumin products very effective as an anti-inflamatory. This product is enhanced to be better absorbable. I have followed the instructions and it seemed to work as well as other Curcumin products but I have not had to take as much to get a similar effect. This was a pleasant surprise. This is a very safe approach versus taking Ibuprofin and other NSAID's. I have been using Life Extention products for a few years and I never get disappointed with their quality. They are always on the leading edge of new developments in the field of natural health care.

Excellent Liquid Aloe product

Posted on Apr 17, 2013

14 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.

Good Co-Q10 product

Posted on May 07, 2016

14 people found the following review helpful

This is a good Co-Q10 product. I like that it does not contain Soy lecithin and is NON-GMO. I don't like that it contains carrageenan. Obviously, in one capsule there is very little in there but just be aware. If you have any intestinal issues I would avoid this product. I also don't care for the safflower oil or modified food starch but again there is very little in each capsule. CoQ10 is a very important supplement. I will not go into depth here as much has already been written on its benefits here and elsewhere. I will repeat that if you take a statin drug you would be well advised to supplement with this or the Ubiquinol form of Co Q10. I do prefer the Ubiquinol form which is the reduced form of Co-Q10 because it is much more usable. As we age we do not convert the Ubiquinone form of Co-Q10 to the Ubiquinol form very well. When we get into our 40's we do it less efficiently. As a result we need to take more of it to get the same effect. To get around this all you need to do is take the Ubiquinol form. It costs more but if you are effectively using almost all of it vs. 25% of the Ubiquinone form of CoQ10, is it really more expensive? One Study on older people has shown that 400mg of Ubiquinone is equivalent to 100mg of Ubiquinol. When this is on sale it is a very good deal. Go to my iHerb page and read which Ubiquinol products I like. If you found this review helpful can you kindly click the YES button. Peace and good health!

Great Organic Aloe product

Posted on Jan 21, 2016

13 people found the following review helpful

I have been using this product for 3 months now and I say it is very good. I take only 1 oz 2x per day on an empty stomach and any acid reflux and stomach discomfort is gone. You could take more based on your situation. If you do take too much it may have a slight laxative effect so be aware. I also find this is good to help heal any gut irritations. I have recommended this to others with Crones and leaky gut and they do well by it. It is good on gong maintenance for the gut. This is an organic aloe and it is grown and processed in the USA. It is not freeze dried or made from powdered aloe. Kudos to iherb for offering this USA product. Plus if you buy 4 at a time you get 5% off. If this review was helpful please click the YES button.

Good prebiotic

Posted on Apr 17, 2013

13 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.
