I don't have Fibromyalgia

Posted on Sep 19, 2008

9 people found the following review helpful

I have every symptom except that I have nerve damage. I have Cervical Disc Radiculopathy from 4 ruptured cervical discs. With that said, I see some improvement in my pain management. I can manage to see my Chiropractor every 2 weeks instead of weekly. I will continue to use this product.

I'm not a very good diabetic

Posted on Oct 26, 2014

3 people found the following review helpful

It's true. While there is no magic pill, this is fairly close. I take this with an extra 200mcg of chromium picolinate and my A1C went from 10 (I told you I wasn't a very good diabetic) to a 7.5. While my doctor is happy with the decrease, she wants it lower. Do I feel "extended energy"? Not really. But, it's a vitamin and something is better than nothing.

A great way to get vitamin C

Posted on Oct 26, 2014

2 people found the following review helpful

I add this to my morning smoothie. I like that, because it's a powdered form, the body absorbs it more completely than pill form. I add it to my husband's smoothie as well. He has a problem taking Vitamin C because it causes him mouth sores. He hasn't gotten any mouth sores with this. This alone is a good enough reason for me to stick with this. Also, I'm a huge "take a boatload of vitamin C and D at the first sign of a cold" person. I haven't had to since taking this. I had an "almost cold". You know, that first day of achiness and a tickle in the back of my throat, but that's as far as it got. The next day, it was gone. I'm quite pleased with this :]

A Good Little Gadget

Posted on May 29, 2015

2 people found the following review helpful

I bought this for a dollar as a Product Trial. If I buy another one it will cost me $3.95. It was the buck that I needed to spend to get my order over $120.00 which equates to an extra 1% off. That was the difference between $7.20 off and and $8.40. So, really, I saved 20¢ In this economy I'll take what I can get :] I read a lot of reviews that said it was DOA. I bought it anyway,and took my chances. It worked upon arrival. I was happy with that. Although, I have to say that I would be very disappointed if light hadn't worked. It would still magnify, it just wouldn't light up the object you're trying to magnify. So, even if it doesn't light up, it's well worth the dollar. I like it because it fits into my purse. It comes in handy when I blow out of the house and forget my readers.

I needed a more natural form of anti-inflamatory

Posted on Oct 26, 2014

2 people found the following review helpful

I take ibuprofen 4 times a day as part of my pain control regime. Even at a low 200mg dose of ibuprofen and food in my stomach, I make gastric/duodenal ulcers. This helps but it's not a complete replacement for ibuprofen. Maybe if I took this 4 times a day, I could replace the ibuprofen completely, but I'm not sure my budget would allow for this.

AGood anti-inflammatory

Posted on May 29, 2015

1 person found the following review helpful

I have a sensitive GI tract, prone to ulcerations. I also have arthritis. I add this to my smoothie. It seems to help with inflammation. This seems to calm my insides down. I do move better when I add this to my smoothies. I put this in my husband's smoothie, he also takes glucosamine with chondroitin, and he's moving around a lot better. I probably should take his glucosamine with chondroitin too.

My A1C is 6.7

Posted on Jun 09, 2015

1 person found the following review helpful

In November, 2 days before Thanksgiving so I could "enjoy" Thanksgiving dinner, I had my labs drawn. My A1C was 8.0. To me, I justified it by telling myself that it's not a 10 [my all time high] and it was only up one point from my previous 7. Both too high. My doctor was not happy with me. I told her that I would do better. I told myself that I would get into a better routine after the New Year. March is after the New Year, and that's when I began. I'm on Metformin 1g 2Xs a day and Glyburide 10mg 2Xs a day. I read about Chromium Picolinate years ago. In fact, I had a 500mcg somewhere up there in the never-used-but-can't throw-out cupboard. So, I started taking them. My body hated me for changing. I felt shaky and weird, like my glucose was low. It wasn't, it was 120. Much lower than my usual 180-200. Then, my daughter came over and told me that the OB/GYN thinks she has gestational diabetes. I went into mama bear mode and bought 2 bottles of 200mcg. One for her and one for me. I think 500mcg is too much too soon for me. Her A1C was 5.3 :] I take a multi-vite in the morning that has 100mcg chromium in it. [Natural-Factors Super Multi Iron Free] along with additional chromium cap and my Rx’d meds. At noon I take another multi-vite that has 200mcg of picolinate. [Enzymatic Therapy Blood Sugar Manager] with another 200mcg cap. This also has additional herbs to help manage glucose levels. I then take another 200mcg cap in the evening and 2 caps at bedtime because my liver thinks it’s okay to kick out glycogen at night. I watch what I eat. Pasta, mashed potatoes, Chinese food, most desserts, and sugar in my coffee are all no-no’s. I put Stevia in my coffee [NuNaturals Pure Liquid Clear] It took about a week to get to where normal glucose levels felt normal. One finger stick was 54 and I didn’t feel shaky or have that urgent need to eat. I do make fruit smoothies instead of a dessert. I put chia and flax along with MSM powder for chronic pain [Source Naturals MSM Powder] Vit C powder [NutriBiotic Sodium Ascorbate Crystalline Powder] protein powder, soy lecithin [Bluebonnet-Nutrition Lecithin Granules] and Benefiber into the blender. I know fruit is a no-no, but with the protein powder, my 2 hour post meal finger stick is 120’s or lower. Anything in [these brackets] I bought from iHerb. I didn’t buy any of these items all at once, I can’t afford to do that. I have to say here that I LOVE iHerb!! They have the best prices. My orders from iHerb get here in a timely manner. The only time I’ll shop elsewhere is if I need it right away and have to go to a B&M. So, why am I telling you all of this in this extremely long review? Because my A1C last week was 6.7!!! :]

This is a potentiator

Posted on Oct 26, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

This is supposed to potentiate curcumin and black cumin seed oil. Also, the half life of curcumin is said to be far less without this. Does it potentiate curcumin and black cumin seed oil? I dunno. I've never taken black cumin oil or curcumin alone. I've read many articles saying that bioperine should be taken, especially, with curcumin. I need the anti-inflammatory effects of black cumin oil or curcumin in an effort to decrease my ibuprofen intake. I am taking 200mg of ibuprofen twice a day. This is down from taking 200mg 4 times a day.

I'm still alive

So, I guess it works. My eyes are better when I use this AND watch my carb intake. There is a higher correlation between high glucose levels and decreased vision.

I have noticed some improvement in my breathing

and I am starting to get my sense of smell back. I realize that, with any supplement, recovery can take a while. With this perspective, I am confident this will work.
