Great for preventing bruises and nosebleeds

Posted on Apr 03, 2008

17 people found the following review helpful

I take a lot of fish oil, but since fish oil is a blood thinner, it tends to make me bruise and get nosebleeds easily. A friend recommended Pycnogenol to stop the bruising and nosebleeds. It worked like a charm. It also make a good anti-inflammatory. The only drawback I've experienced is that high doses (200 mg.) tend to make me a little light-headed and irritable. Pycnogenol works best if taken with lots of vitamin C (500 mg.)

Great Anti-Inflammatory!

Posted on Apr 04, 2008

31 people found the following review helpful

Like a couple of other reviewers here, I was suffering for over a year from a stiff, sore shoulder (probably tendinitis and impingement). High doses of fish oil helped a little; but after a month of taking Astaxanthin (8 mg a day), the pain in my shoulder is almost completely gone and my joint mobility is almost completely restored to normal. Astaxanthin has proven far more effective than the prescription anti-inflammatories I was taking (like declofenac, which is toxic to your liver and kidneys, btw). This is the most effective supplement I've ever tried.

This stuff is great for tendinitis. It works just as well as the prescription medicine diclofenac, but without any of the side effects.

Very useful for reducing inflammation of joints. I take 1-4 capsules a day, along with Omega-3 fish oil, to counteract the pounding my joints get from weightlifting and running.

Takes the Edge Off Stressful Day

Posted on Sep 14, 2010

I've found taurine very useful for calming myself on stressful days. Take 2 tsp. a few hours before a job interview, for example. Makes me calm but not drowsy or sluggish. The stuff has almost no taste, so it's easy to take. Just mix in water and drink it.

Sort of useful, but...

I take this to help heal some overstressed ligaments. It helps a little, but if I take more than one capsule a day, it makes me feel slightly dizzy and stupid. So I take one cap before bed.

Good stuff

I sprinkle this on my soups and salads for extra iodine. I barely notice the taste but I sure feel the difference. I have much greater energy during the day and sleep better at night. Great price, too. This is a keeper.

Fast, Soothing Relief

Posted on May 02, 2012

5 people found the following review helpful

Thisi is the most effective and fast-acting product I've tried for relieving the itchy, flaking rash that sometimes breaks out on my face. Within seconds it stopped the itching & flaking and within minutes it reduced the redness. The effect lasts all day, until I wash it off. One jar will last a few months, so this product is a bargain. I love this stuff!

After taking 1 capsule a day for a couple of months, I feel more alert and have noticed a distinct improvement in my recall ability. Only drawback is that it makes my neck and jaw muscles feel a little tense.

first bacopa that worked

Posted on Apr 16, 2011

3 people found the following review helpful

I tried a couple of other brands a few years ago, but they did absolutely nothing. Paradise Herbs is the first bacopa that has actually had any effect on me. It's calming and slightly sedating. After taking it every day for a week, I notice that I'm able to remember things a little more quickly than before.
