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.

Good

Posted on Jul 04, 2009

8 people found the following review helpful

I prefer DeSouza's liquid chlorophyll but they, much like salad dressing manufacturers, insist on making the opening too big so you spill way too much so that you waste it and their sales go up. So I stopped buying the liquid. (The stains can be permanent on your countertops). This is ok. Works well as internal deodorant, detox, antioxidant and more. DeSouza's chloro. in caps has more pure ingredients but iHerb so far doesn't carry it.

The Cadillac of B vitamins... and the only 1 I can absorb

Posted on Mar 06, 2013

8 people found the following review helpful

I have malabsorption syndrome caused by candida. I'm basically deficient in all nutrients which is causing tons of life-threatening problems such as internal organ failure etc.. B vitamins, along with magnesium, is the most critical to me to maintain life at this stage. This is the only B vitamin that my system will absorb *some*, so I need to take more than the average person. I really wish they would remove the soy though, I already take sunflower lecithin so this is not needed and is probably GMO. We live in a very toxic world. Unfortunately for me, it's either take this with the GMO frankensoy lecithin or well, you know. Live now and pay later? I still give this 5 stars but you make your decision according to where you're at with what you know.

It's actually pretty good

Posted on Jun 19, 2013

8 people found the following review helpful

This is mild dark taste, not bitter and the salt just adds a bit of kick but overall it's sweet. I didn't buy this for years as I didn't want any salt in my chocolate. The almonds are not hurting my very sensitive teeth so far. I might repurchase. 3 stars because it's not organic and not really spectacular like the one iHerb sadly stopped carrying, the ginger candy one.

It's ok

Posted on Dec 04, 2012

8 people found the following review helpful

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.

Save your money: it does NOT work on 100% cotton!

Posted on Feb 14, 2013

8 people found the following review helpful

And why use a chemical-free detergent unless you also wear chemical-free fabrics!? I'm not sure why anyone would bother with that but if you, too, have MCS and can only wear natural fabrics, save your money: it doesn't do anything at all! I tried it on a dirty white shirt (grayed cuffs as if I'd moped the floor with them, no idea how that happened): didn't work. I tried it on the collar: same thing and I tried it on a small tomato stain: it didn't budge one bit! :-/ I don't know why this thing has 4.5 stars from nearly 500 reviews but here you have my honest review on 100% untreated Pima cotton. I guess the one star can make itself useful: it is completely unscented and caused me no reaction whatsoever... but what good is it!?

Nothing natural, loaded w/toxic ingredients!

Posted on Mar 26, 2010

8 people found the following review helpful

Currently shopping for natural B complex. Happened on this item and I'm utterly shocked: not only is there 0 indication that the B vitamins come from 100% natural, non-GMO, non-synthetic source, the "other ingredients" are highly toxic! Just google each one of them and you will see clearly the dangers & the side effects for: Dicalcium Phosphate, Croscarmellose Sodium, Stearic Acid, Silicon Dioxide, Dextrin, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide. Unfortunately the magnesium stearate is one that is hard to avoid but the rest on the list are far more toxic! Why buy a supplement that causes migraines & possibly cancer?

NOT VEGAN: comes from sheep's lanolin!

Posted on Jan 25, 2010

7 people found the following review helpful

Editing my review: just got off the phone with HO and they told me that this vitamin comes from sheep's wool! 2 free samples of this D sold me on this D: I ordered a bottle because it's an excellent vitamin D (my Dr. said I was very deficient) and it protects against colds & (swine) flu. It's best to take 1 pill x4/day. If taking too much of any D at once, it is too strong a diuretic. Best to split it up during the day, all day protection that way.

Promotes fat loss fast

Posted on Oct 29, 2012

7 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.

Excellent for circulation & against wrinkles

Posted on Nov 12, 2012

7 people found the following review helpful

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.

Helps with hormonal imbalances/fatigue

Posted on Jul 21, 2013

7 people found the following review helpful

It's not the best tea by any means. It tastes rather peppery and roasted, a bit like burnt toast. It's not exactly unpleasant to the taste. Since I have so many symptoms to take care of, and there's only so much tea I can drink, I combined this with 1 elderberry tea bag. Not the best combination. The elderberries did sweeten the taste a bit with their fruity flavor but the strong vitex taste persisted. Nevertheless, this does its job of helping counteract overwhelming fatigue and discomfort brought by severe hormonal imbalances (namely high levels of toxic estrogen); it does this by stimulating the brain (hypothalamus or pituitary, I forget) to secrete more progesterone, thus balancing out these 2 hormones. I'll probably buy again, though caps are easiest, but it tastes better than the liquid extracts.

I love its gorgeous lavender wrapper!

Posted on Dec 10, 2012

7 people found the following review helpful

The chocolate is ok, sort of between milk and dark. I found it has a relaxing effect, mildly euphoric. I love the color of the wrapper and bought it again for that but unfortunately the 2 new bars arrived crushed. It's not the best chocolate but if I'm relaxed it gives me a strange happy feeling and if I'm not in a good place it relaxes me.

A bit too oily for me but goes on smooth and almost no flavor at all

Posted on Jun 19, 2013

7 people found the following review helpful

I'm not sure why iHerb switched the name from Madre Labs or Madre Bees to Sierra Bees so that's why the search turned up nothing. Anyway this is a pretty good lip balm. A bit too oily for my taste but less oily than Badger brand lip balms. It is also less overpowering in the cocoa butter smell so it's really pretty good. The reason why I'm giving 3 stars, besides the oily feel, is because, unlike my favorite lip balm, it doesn't do anything for chapped lips as, unlike that one, it does not exfoliate at all. I have MCS so the no scent/no taste works for me.
