Feed your bones and brain

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

You need Vitamin D to absorb calcium. People who avoid the sun, use sunscreen, or have dark skin are particularly vulnerable to D deficiency, which can lead to osteoporosis and depression (especially Seasonal Affective Disorder in northern climates.) You can overdose on D -- it doesn't dissolve in water and can be stored in body fat -- but not at this level. One a day is enough.

The don't call it B-complex for nothing

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

A deficiency in Vitamin B-6 can cause nerve symptoms that mimic carpal tunnel syndrome, and can also be a cause of depression. You shouldn't take a single B vitamin alone for long; if you need one, you need them all. They work together. What fixed my wrist pain was 100 mg of B-6, but I take the whole complex to avoid trouble. Anything left over is excreted in the urine. I don't mind having expensive urine if my wrist doesn't hurt.

Get that blood moving

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

Citrulline is an amino acid that stimulates blood flow -- good for people with poor circulation. Along with nattokinase, I use it to avoid blood clots and popsicle feet.

A boost for your body's tiny power plants

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

This amino acid provides support to your mitochondria -- the tiny power plant in every cell. An energy booster, works best with CoQ10.

Lutein

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

Lutein is part of a natural treatment for macular degeneration. In this case the retina specialist recommended it, in combination with bilberry. The goal is to retard the progression of macular degeneration, not to cure it. I have every confidence in the quality of any product from Now Foods.

Goodbye DVT

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

This enzyme helps protect against deep vein thrombosis (blood clot) by making the platelets less sticky. Having a DVT is an experience I don't want to repeat, and nattokinase is part of my strategy. I could take warfarin (Coumadin - it's used as rat poison; rats that ingest it bleed to death) but I like to do things non-medically where possible. I'm careful not to run out of natto. Works extra well with L-Citrulline.

Eye health

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

Bilberry is an herb credited with improving eye health. It's used in combination with lutein to slow the progression of macular degeneration, an eye disease that eventually leads to blindness.

Great product, great price

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

This brand of CoQ10, an antioxidant, is much better priced than most. An excellent buy for a valuable nutrient.

Good for some uses, not for others

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

Stevia extract is fine for sweetening things like tea, but where bulk is required, as in baking, it won't work. People who detect a bitter aftertaste in liquid stevia are probably using too much. It takes experimentation, starting with less than you think you'll need. I tried growing the plant and making my own extract, but found it less expensive to buy it.

Down with free radicals (molecules, not people)

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

Vitamins A, C, E, and the mineral selenium are the basic antioxidants, helping avoid damage to cells that can lead to malignancies. Taking this is basic good sense.

Get your fiber here

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

I feel best on a very low-carbohydrate diet, but that makes it hard to get fiber. Here's my solution. Take it with a full glass of water. Experiment to see how many caps you need. You'll be able to tell.

Using these as a backup

Posted by Reviewer1135456 on Mar 30, 2008

I wouldn't entrust my mineral wellbeing to a single product, and it takes three of these to provide the full amount shown on the label. I take one a day, along with extra calcium and magnesium, as a safeguard. Our well water is almost devoid of minerals, and the water testing company suggested supplementing.
