Nice Cream; Purity Questionable
Posted by priyanka on Dec 18, 2012
Pros: easily absorbed in 10 seconds, leaving a fresh matte finish. Cons: pump bottle now a tube; 'Organic' ingredients have no certification to back up claim; product seems adulterated -- with those ingredients (which read really well) i'm confused as to how a pure white cream is achieved. With the deep red berries and chlorella, the cream should be a pinkish-grey, at least. If they're using extracts or oils of ingredients, they need to be listed as such for full disclosure ... If you're a purist, this product may not be for you. Personally, I prefer Argan Oil with essential oils of frankincense, seabuckthorn, cape chamomile, rosemary linalool, lavender, cinnamon bark and lemon mixed in. I purchase these only from livinglibations.com who supply the best, organic essential oils (i have no affiliation with them besides being a regular customer). I buy the Acure Argan Oil from iHeb.
Great for Adrenal Fatigue and ME/CFS
Posted by priyanka on Apr 13, 2013
A fortifying, energizing cortical extract with liver, lung, pancreas, heart, kidney, and spleen extracts for well-rounded organ support. If you ever feel on the verge of collapse from daily stresses and like you cannot cope with one more thing, please try this product so that you can manage more. I noticed a difference after just a few days, but I do need to take this supp indefinitely at this point as my ME/CFS is in the extremely severe category. For most people with adrenal exhaustion, a year of support can go a long way to re-energize your adrenals. Please start with one capsule per day and work up slowly to 3. Taking your last dose late at night may cause insomnia, so try to take all doses before 4 PM. I give this product 4/5 because Enzymatic Therapies® has still not learned that colourings (in this case, Titanium Dioxide) need to be made out of beet juice, chlorophyll or other natural materials. You can easily open the caps if you don't want to take in unnecessary Titanium Dioxide.
Anti-viral + Anti-biotic for gram+ Bacteria

Monolaurin works by destroying lipid-coated viruses such as herpes, cytomegalovirus, influenza, and various pathogenic bacteria and protozoa. Monolaurin works by binding to the lipid-protein envelope of the virus, thereby preventing it from attaching and entering host cells, making infection and replication impossible. Other studies show that Monolaurin disintegrates the viral envelope, killing the virus. Gram+ bacteria include Staph, Strep, Clostridia.

Used for inflammation and thinning sputum, this product is working really well for me as evidenced by coughing up less mucous and by Comprehensive Stool Analysis where digestive and inflammatory markers are coming into balance after starting Serraflazyme. Some also claim it dissolves arterial plaque, dead tissue and blood clots, though I haven't any personal experience with that. Please take on an empty stomach or the enzymes will just digest the protein in the food you've ingested. If you're stomach is rarely empty, you may take 3 tables at once whenever it is (advice given to me from company rep). Amy Yasko uses this product as part of her GI protocol.
Excellent for DIY Bodycare
Posted by priyanka on Oct 31, 2014
I melted this + some shea butter in a double boiler, then mixed in jojoba oil and essential oils, let it sit until almost solid [a bit tricky] + then whipped it into a product resembling one i had recently paid $75 for! Making my own from now on. I'm not allowed to post outside links here, but Google 'Whipped Body Butter' and you'll find many recipes.
Versatile, Effective Organic Oil
Posted by priyanka on Apr 13, 2013
I use this almond oil primarily for cleansing my skin. I add an essential oil blend of some of the following: lemon, lavender, geranium, frankincense, rosemary, palmarosa and/or seabuckthorn to the oil and then place a squirt onto a damp face cloth. I used to use it only for my face but am now using it for neck, arms and chest as well and finding that it cleans just as well as soap without drying my skin out. If you don't have time to shower, but need a pick-me-up quick-cleanse, this is an excellent alternative. For my facial moisturizer, I use this almond oil mixed with Argan Oil and essential oils. My face is oilt, so i use 3-4 drops on damp skin; for dry skin apply to skin that is dry. As an oil for babies or massage, this Almond Oil is fantastic. For babies, you can ad essential oils of lavender, tangerine and/or rose to keep it safe.
Great Alternative o Florastor®

Just like Florastor® but not as expensive. Used in hospital with antibiotic treatment to reduce the risk of accompanying diarrhea.
Great Product for a Fantastic Price
Posted by priyanka on Nov 23, 2012
This product has many uses, though the main one is to thin mucous secretions which it does well. It has also been used in Fibromyalgia to reduce pain. Dr Amy uses it frequently in her protocol to help bring minerals back into balance. Haven't seen a better price anywhere else!
Great Herx Help
Posted by priyanka on Nov 21, 2014
I did a very extreme treatment. Usually I become transiently paralyzed and/or mute from herxing, but taking 10 drops in ½ cup of water every 10-15 minutes for a few hours helped tremendously.
great, love it

capsules are cleaner than tabs + the dose is great.
Ethically Produced and Organic

It's hard to know what you're getting with Argan Oil, but this product seems to work well and has all the right credentials; the only thing it doesn't mention is if it's been de-oderized at all, which I suspect it has. The scent is very mild compared to other Argan Oils, which can smell like you're putting hempseed oil on your face. It is a lovely, non-oily consistency that soaks right in leaving a radiant glow. I mix mine with essential oils of rose otto, frankincense, rosemary and a bit of cinnamon (for cellular rejuvenation). You can see my skin on my homepage for the result (I'm 41).
Love These Greens

Super ingredients. I asked the company to provide info on oxalates and they quickly had it tested, saying "Each 3 gram serving contains approximately 100mg of Oxalic acid (via HPLC)." The exact number from that lot was 111 mg, but changes with each harvest.
