Fantastic product - I'll never be without it!!

Posted by Reviewer1391297 on Nov 14, 2009

I'm 30 years old, work in a professional environment and wear high heels every day. About 2 years ago, the joint in my big toe started to ache constantly, even when I wasn't wearing heels. I had it checked by a podiatrist who said that it was arthritis and that there really wasn't anything I could do for it, short of surgery at some point down the road if it got really bad. I'd read about curcumin for the anti-cancer benefits, and that was actually the reason I began taking it. At the time, I didn't know that it was also good for arthritis. Within a couple of days of taking it (I started with 2 caps, twice a day), my toe completely stopped bothering me. I basically just stopped noticing the pain. I've taken it for close to 2 months now and am now taking 1 cap twice a day. This stuff is amazing!! I just recommended it to my mom, who is beginning to feel some arthritis in her hands, and to a friend whose joints hurt after running. This is 1 supplement that I will continue to take indefinitely!

NOT a good quality astaxanthin!!

Posted by Reviewer1391297 on Jun 04, 2012

It might be a good price, but the quality isn't good. I had been taking the NOW brand for a long time, then decided to try Healthy Origins, due to the price and the amount that you get. Whereas I had been able to comfortably go without sunglasses with the NOW brand, I found myself always squinting with this brand. Its inferior quality became clear today when I went for a walk, without suntan lotion, and ended up getting a bright red sunburn. With the other brand, I would have gotten just the lightest hint of color from that same walk. I'm not even going to bother finishing off the bottle, I'm going back to my old brand.

Best Astaxanthin and for a great price!

Posted by Reviewer1391297 on Jun 04, 2012

I've been taking NOW Astaxanthin for well over a year. I find that I'm able to comfortably go without sunglasses, whereas I used to need them if there was any amount of light outside. I can also be outside in the middle of the day without sunscreen and not get burnt. I put this to the test when I camped out in the Black Rock City desert for a week last year - I sprayed sunscreen on once in the morning, then walked around all day and never burned, and I have very fair skin. I recently purchased a different brand of Astaxanthin and regretted it. I realized that I was squinting while driving without my sunglasses, but thought I might just be imagining things. Today I went for a walk and didn't apply sunscreen and my shoulders and back got burnt! So I know that the quality of that other brand is inferior. I just reordered the NOW brand, I don't even want to finish the bottle of the other stuff!

Helps me feel Lighter after eating Heavy food

Posted by Reviewer1391297 on Sep 23, 2009

I eat a mostly high raw food diet (only fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds with nothing heated above 118 degrees). The enzymes in these foods are in tact. On the occasions that I do eat cooked foods (whose enzymes are depleted by the cooking process), I take 2 capsules of the Enzyme Blend. The food digests easier and more quickly and with less digestive upset. It keeps me from getting that "brick in the stomach" feeling. 3 caps for me was a bit harsh - lots of gas and some cramping. 2 caps works just right for me. I also feel that I'm helping my body to retain more of its own stores of enzymes by supplementing with this product. I will definitely be purchasing this again! And of course, you just cannot beat iHerb's prices and service!!

Favorite lip balm of all time

Posted by Reviewer1391297 on Nov 01, 2013

I used to use Aquaphor for my extremely chapped lips (thanks to 2 rounds of Accutane), but wanted to transition to more natural products. I tried Badger Balm lip balm, and it was ok, and then I discovered that the Sierra Bees (formerly Madre Bees) lip balms were free with every iHerb order! How did I not know that before?! I tried the honey and didn't care much for it, then got the pomegranate and fell in love. I didn't need anything else from iHerb, but I am getting to the end of my tube and just ordered 6 more as a separate order so I can keep one in my purse, one at work, one at home, etc.
