Simply truthful and honest reviews since 2008!

I hope my reviews will be helpful in assisting you to choose your products. I'm dealing with overlapping illnesses, so a lot of symptoms to treat. I try to review things that are not listed and hard to figure out online such as packaging type (is that bottle safe glass or is it toxic-plastic?) and contents (does that tea have a staple, string or simply pressed together?). Please keep in mind that I live in Southern California and that arid weather is very different than humid so, things that work for me, such as moisturizers or creams, might be too rich for you. Also skin types differ, I'm both oily and dry currently so I try to indicate all that. On occasion, I'll add humor to my reviews, particularly if I was unhappy (humor heals) and I love to vote Yes on others' helpful reviews. Thank you to those of you who remember to afford me the same courtesy. Welcome to my page and hope you find some fun, helpful or delicious products you hadn't tried before. Be well, everyone.

Sent to a friend for weight loss as I've experience tremendous weight loss myself after steroids with lecithin granules. Like that it's IPP and non-GMO! Thanks iHerb for carrying this!

Firms up and hardens my muscles incredibly fast!

Posted on Jan 09, 2009

11 people found the following review helpful

I don't exercise and the first day of taking 3-4 of these pills, I could feel my leg muscles hardening. Unfortunately I got fat from prescription gluco-cortico-steroids and that fat (located in my upper body only) won't budge no matter what! But I seem to be developing muscle under all that flab. I used to have a very firm, thin upper body. Maybe after a few years of these the steroid-induced fat will finally melt? I've Googled it and I can't find out how to lose weight/fat after steroid usage! =( I wish I had never taken Cortef, it ruined my body!

The Alchemist's Secret: transform mood & room karma with a spritz of this relaxing elixir!

Posted on Jan 25, 2014

11 people found the following review helpful

Although this is not the pure French lavender scent I'm familiar with and prefer, after a while I got used to this scent. I used it during a phase of mental chaos and panic attacks and I must say, it's very comforting and soothing. I have read that bees who pollinate the lavender fields get so drunk on the nectar that they let people pet them. And that if one wants to help and attract bees, one ought to plant lavender in their garden. On an energetic level, lavender acts as a transmuting force for good. For those into chakras and etheric bodies, this is extremely powerful and yet very gentle and subtly transformational. Of course, this is not going to put out an insomniac, particularly when there's hormonal issues and/or nutritional deficiencies, but nevertheless, if you let it, it will ease your mind a bit of obsessive or persisting thoughts. A few sprays might be necessary. The aluminum can means the sprays will always be very cool. When I mist my body, I find it leaves no sticky residue and the skin is instantly dry (but then again, I live in the mainly arid, desert climate of Southern California). The scent does linger a bit, which is a surprise as natural EOs are naturally volatile and this is a top note which is very ephemeral. All in all, an excellent product. I'm withdrawing a star because I prefer the true French lavender, because of the aluminum can (would prefer glass for safety reasons since I was diagnosed with aluminum toxicity already) and because it is not organic. Although, to me, it has room for improvement, the effects are immediate and pretty impressive. I use it as a room spritz as well as body spray. If the smell disappoints you like it did me at first, keep trying it, it gets better, or at least it did for me. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!

No major results here but no side effects either

Posted on Feb 14, 2013

Seems to work but not sure. I do need to supplement with extra B's for homocysteine balance as B complex doesn't do anything for me in that regards whereas individual B vites taken together work amazingly well. Back to this pill: I initially divided the cap in 2 but even now that I take a full one, I don't have any reaction to niacin, the potency is too low to be able to cause flushing from what I read, it's higher dosage that cause the problem, unless someone would have pre-existing conditions to make them super sensitive to it. I'm not sure I've seen any benefits, I might go back to Country Life brand because I read lots of negative reviews on here about Jarrow's B12 changed formula which led me to some searching and I found some questionable reports about Jarrow's owner and his being very rude to his customers. I'm not sure what to make of it and someone might not care but I found it disturbing enough not to want to have anything to do with the company. In the meantime, I've already switched my B12 from Jarrow to Solgar and that works much, much better so maybe these reviews (posted here on iHerb at Jarrow's B12) are right after all.

By far the best & healthiest sea salt of them all!

Posted on Nov 22, 2012

10 people found the following review helpful

And I've tried many from different countries. I even prefer this one to the Fleur de Sel de Guerande which I had imported a few years ago. This one is truly gray and not white, as real sea salt ought to be. Nice bonus: it's a huge bottle, double the size on a normal shaker that I expected. (I'm not good at figuring out ounces, so I never know what I'm going to get!) The only drawback here is the plastic shaker. It's flexible plastic which definitely means high BPA content! Yikes! On the plus side I had this shipped in cold weather and my place is almost constantly a/c'd, even winter nights. A lucite shaker would have been so much better if they couldn't afford glass though! This salt makes food taste the best out of all sea salts I've tried, it's genuine Celtic (which strangely enough means from France and not Ireland, still haven't figured out why) and therefore it is the healthiest and the gray color can attest to that. I've always felt a bit sketchy using Trader Joe's white sea salt from Spain and now my mind is at ease over that. I have severe adrenal insufficiency and salt is vital to me.

To darken my hair

Posted on Nov 21, 2012

10 people found the following review helpful

It seems to be working. I'm not taking any panthenol (B5) whatsoever with this. The first cap gave me a minor headache and so did the 2nd one that I took the next day. Since then, I use my NOW empty capsules and only have 1/2 a dose about 4 times per day. No more headaches from this. Unless it's my imagination, my hair does appear darker. My dry hair has also become softer and to my utter shock, a couple days ago I woke up missing the fine line under one of my eyes. (I am taking other skin/anti-wrinkle supplements but this seemed to do the trick along with another one I added the same week). I will update this if my hair color is restored. I do not like the high content of sterates in this item (double) & remove one star for that.

Make no mistake: this vitamin is 100% pure SOY!

Posted on Nov 02, 2009

10 people found the following review helpful

Label says it all "d-Alpha Gems is a Natural-source Vitamin E derived from soybean oil" Later they claim it's soy-free. Who are they kidding? You don't take a pork chop, put it in a blender, filter it and then call it vegan. And $81 for this travesty?! Sorry. You can't claim something is soy-free when it comes EXCLUSIVELY from soy. That is ridiculous! Maybe they have removed the common soy-allergens but for those of us who are avoiding soy for other reasons, the xenoestrogens are 100% still in this vitamin. Soy is a highly toxic food! Just google soy + dangers. Be informed! Waiting for someone manufacture vitamin E pills from egg yolks, olives or avocados.

Best salt I ever tried!

Posted on Aug 17, 2013

9 people found the following review helpful

Charcoal is very healing to detox chemicals and other environmental toxins, particularly if, like me, you have MCS. I take charcoal pills already so I was intrigued by this salt. This salt is full-bodied, tastes like delicious, natural sea salt but has an incredible yummy flavor. Not smoky or anything bad. The grinder has a tab cap which should make it easier to lift off but somehow mine gets stuck and is quite a challenge to remove. That's my only negative here, but not enough to warrant removing a star. The grinder words well. Now I use white pepper and black salt on my food, how cool is that?! Oh and PS: black salt has more than just the culinary use. Virtually undetectable and conspicuous use. Let's put it this way: annoying loud neighbors? Seems to work, enjoy! ;)

It's ok

Posted on Dec 04, 2012

I didn't find it particularly fragrant nor powerful. I'm not impressed and won't purchase again. I'm glad to read there's many others who find it weak and smells off, it's not just me! It's the product. This smells nothing like the eucalyptus I knew as a kid for sinus steam inhalation. 3 stars for being organic but a disappointing purchase.

Excellent for circulation & against wrinkles

I take this with vitamin E for activation and against leg vein pain & poor circulation. It helps. I take 3 per day. It's also a potent antioxidant that is said to prevent and reverse wrinkles. I'm taking a lot of skin supplements & I've seen a remarkable improvement in the skin of my face.

Promotes fat loss fast

Posted on Oct 29, 2012

8 people found the following review helpful

L-Carnitine is a top of the line amino-like product which works fast to melt body fat, however a minimum of exercise is required for this to work, whether it be walking fast or simply lifting heavy stuff around the house. I also take this for circulation problems, particularly to the brain and arms. I went from 500mg a day to 2g (from 1 pill to 4 per day) and I see better results all-around at 4 pills per day. Always safest to start slow to gauge results and potential reactions. No side effects for me at either dosage. Thanks to this and several other amino acids, I now have muscle tone again after medical steroid treatment catabolized my muscle tissue everywhere. Always take on empty stomach. This a very good brand.
