I feel this is important for women to take, and men too.

I am not in menopause, but want to take it as prevention and health, and plan to continue taking once I get into menopause as well and the rest of my life. I take one in the morning and one at night. I also make sure I take enough omega 3 oils, calcium and vitamin D(Need to take blood test to test for what is appropriate level for yourself)-much higher than RDA recommended, not enough to depend on the sun, take a supplement, for strong bones and prevention of breast cancer. Usana supplements have higher levels of vitamin D added and good multiple vitamin set with vitamin D as well. In total, my vitamin D is about 4000 IU daily. Research shows a daily oral intake between 1,000 to 4,000 IU of vitamin D (depending upon your baseline vitamin D blood levels) is ideal. Vitamin D toxicity does not occur until blood levels reach 150 ng/ml or more; which would generally take an oral dose of 50,000 IU per day! Vitamin D status can be assessed by a blood test. Be careful about the lab’s reference ranges, because sometimes they will compare you to the "normal population," which is DEFICIENT...you don't want to be “normal” (or deficient in vitamin D). Optimal levels of vitamin D3 (25-hdroxyvitamin D) should be in the range of 30 – 50 ng/ml (or 75 – 125 nmol/L). What is fascinating, and critical for you to know is that there are well over 89 medical studies showing that high vitamin D blood levels (which can only be obtained by supplementing with more than 400 IU/day) reduce nearly all cancers, including cancers of the colon, rectum, breast, and prostate (some as much as 50%). Furthermore, vitamin D has been shown to suppress inflammation by reducing cytokines (inflammatory modulating molecules). Thus, taking at least 1,000 of vitamin D or more per day helps protect against inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, chronic muscle pain (fibromyalgia), congestive heart failure, diabetes, stroke, and mutliple sclerosis. God bless you all.

Important to take supplement

I try to take enough vitamin D(Need to take blood test to test for what is appropriate level for yourself)-much higher than RDA recommended, not enough to depend on the sun, take a supplement, for strong bones and prevention of cancers. Usana supplements have higher levels of vitamin D added to their supplements and good multiple vitamin set with vitamin D as well. I also make sure I take enough omega 3 oils and calcium. In total, my vitamin D is about 3100 IU daily. Research shows a daily oral intake between 1,000 to 4,000 IU of vitamin D (depending upon your baseline vitamin D blood levels) is ideal. Vitamin D toxicity does not occur until blood levels reach 150 ng/ml or more; which would generally take an oral dose of 50,000 IU per day! Vitamin D status can be assessed by a blood test.

Iodine is important to get 150 mcg

Posted on Dec 12, 2012

7 people found the following review helpful

I take 1 capsule a day for the green food. I get also iodine from my multivitamin/mineral 150 mcg at least. I heard 150 mcg is the recommended amount a day. My gynecologist said that iodine is a metal, so you don't want to take too much. But you need iodine no matter what, or you could get hypothyroidism, where no matter how much you exercise or diet, you gain weight, besides other things. God bless you all.

I got a pimple or 2.

I was using this on my facial skin, and after a couple uses, I got a pimple or 2. I also tried the Now brand and it did the same thing. Aura Cacia has color to it, while the Now brand was almost clear I think. God bless you all.

Hard to tell.....

Posted on Nov 07, 2013

7 people found the following review helpful

I was looking for a reasonably priced alpha hydroxy/beta hydroxy acid light lotion that helps with cell renewal for my face, it absorbs very well, makes my skin smooth and soft. I felt some tingling. Don't get it anywhere near your eyes! Even though I felt tingling like it was working on my skin, I didn't really see a difference after using about 2 bottles of it, but then again, I didn't use it every night, sometimes every other night or every few nights apart. It may be because your skin might get used to the alpha hydroxy, I don't remember if I could still feel the tingle, I think it says on the bottle something about that that you should use it for a certain amount of time or else your skin might get used to it and it might not be as effective. I also have maturing skin, it might be better for someone young. I don't think I am going to use it. God bless you all.

Diffiicult to put on

Posted on Jul 07, 2014

7 people found the following review helpful

This sunscreen is difficult to put on/spread, because it leaves whitish residue here and there, you have to rub in more in those areas. And it pills, which is frustrating as well. In my order, I ordered this and 2 other sunscreens to try them and see which ones I would like. I wish this one worked out because it is Spf 50 and also has zinc oxide. But I like the other 2 natural sunscreens a lot, Tate's Spf 30(titanium dioxide) is very easy to apply/spreads easily with no whitish residue moisturizing and Coola's Spf 30 tinted BB Face Cream(titanium dioxide, zinc oxide) is also very easy to apply and silky smooth moisturizing, both from iherb. God bless you all.

Very oily.

Posted on Nov 07, 2013

This is like an oil, I did not know that it was going to be an oil. And it doesn't seem to absorb well, but maybe I put too much or maybe a light layer might better absorb. I was looking for more of a cream or lotion sunscreen. However, I have been getting really into virgin coconut oil and this seems like this is really good with good ingredients and organic. I just had to get used to applying oil more often. Coconut oil is so good for you. God bless you all.

good but....

It seems brightening and a nice moisturizer, but it would give me a zit almost everytime I used it. So I stopped using it. I use Aveda Green Science Firming face cream and it doesn't give me any pimples. I have combination skin. God bless you all.

Nice skincare oil

Posted on Apr 20, 2013

4 people found the following review helpful

I am so glad it is organic, and this jojoba oil seems to have a slight nutty smell to it, might be because it is a good quality one. It seems better than the Now Foods one. This Aura Cacia one seems to make my facial skin firm and well moisturized. It has nutrients, and I think antioxidants. I put on a thin layer so it absorbs better. If you put on a lot, it stays oily on the facial skin. I put it also on my eyebrows, eyelashes, and lips at night. Very moisturizing. I tried it in my hair, but it is kind of heavy and oily feeling-while damp before blow dry, so I use a shine product specifically for the hair before I blow dry now. I don't use it to take off eye makeup as it seems to leave a residue in my eyes. I also got the Aura Cacia Sweet Almond Oil which is good and absorbs well(with similar outcomes-tried the same things as jojoba oil), I don't know which is better to use but when I refrigerated them, the jojoba oil turned solid while the sweet almond oil stayed liquid-I don't know if that means the jojoba oil is better, but I have been using the jojoba oil mostly. I also want to try it on my body after shower while skin is still damp. God bless you all.

You need to use a lot more to get a good lather. Otherwise, smells nice and moisturizes skin. God bless you all.

Tastes good

Posted on Apr 16, 2014

3 people found the following review helpful

This powder has a little sweet taste to it, it tastes good in water, it mixes easily in cold or room temperature water. I use this with the Liddell HGH spray. I don't know how much it is working in my body, but I think it helps taking it. The scoop that comes inside it is kind of long, so it is hard to put back in the container, I keep it separately outside of the container. God bless you all.

Like that it is natural.

This spreads easier than the Badger sunscreen, but it still takes a little work to spread on skin. Seems pretty good otherwise. But I prefer to use Jason Mineral spf 30 sunscreen, which I found recently, easier to spread on skin. God bless you all.
