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 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.

Great product in an economical form

Posted on Apr 16, 2013

20 people found the following review helpful

There are many great reviews on this item so I won't get too deep here. I trust the Carlson brand for high quality which is extra important when it comes to fish oils. This product has 500mg of DHA Omega 3's in one teaspoon. There are many forms of Omega 3 oils and the DHA form is what research has proven to be the most important when it comes to cognitian and mental health benefits. I find the lemon taste is very good. No fishy after taste. This is a more economical way to get your fish oils vs. the Carlson gel caps. The Caps are great if you are away from home but when at home I now get my fish oils and DHA this way. Remember to keep it refrigerated.

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.

Great Natural oral health product

Posted on Jun 27, 2013

16 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.

Good for your liver, heart and more

Posted on Apr 17, 2013

15 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 Homeopathic product

Posted on Aug 23, 2013

15 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.

Very Good Results so far

Posted on Jun 27, 2013

13 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.

Excellent Liquid Aloe product

Posted on Apr 17, 2013

13 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

13 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.

A very good alternative to NSAID

Posted on Jul 04, 2013

12 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 Cal Mag product

Posted on Apr 16, 2013

11 people found the following review helpful

I have been using this product from Pioneer for over 5 years. I like the fact that they use a form of calcium from Grass fed bovine bone and include trace minerals from a seaweed source. They also include a small amount of vitamin D3 (not much) which research has shown is a more desirable form than D2. The magnesium is needed to absorb the calcium. Boron is an important trace mineral needed to prevent bone demineralization (osteoporosis). It is typically found in root vegetables but with aggressive farming techniques I am not confidant I will always get enough. Although it is a tablet, it does dissolve well. I have tested it in vinegar. If you found this review helpful, kindly visit my iHerb home page and read more of my reviews. Just click on my handle name above to get there. Peace and good health.

Good prebiotic

Posted on Apr 17, 2013

11 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

11 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.
