Indian spices are important
A study in Singapore showed that Chinese who ate curry at least once a week had lower incidence of age-related mental problems. Although I eat curry once a week, I take one of these a day as well. Organic and vegetarian. Eclectic Institute is my primary source for herbs.
the best ginkgo
Now organic in complete form. I took standardized forms of ginkgo for a long time but I have reverted to whole herbs. Quality control at Eclectic Institute is better than any other herbalist I have tried.
IF YOU CAN'T GET FRESH KUDZU...
I AM A BELIEVER IN ECLECTIC INSTITUTE. HAVE TRIED CHEAPER THINGS (NATURE'S ANSWER, NOW FOODS) FOR SOME THINGS, ALWAYS COME BACK TO ECLECTIC. THE ONLY HERBALIST THAT SEEMS TO BE ALL-VEGETARIAN AND (GRADUALLY) ALL-ORGANIC. HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS, USING WHOLE PARTS (NO EXTRACTS). I ATE KUDZU ONCE A WEEK IN ASIA. IN THE US, I TAKE ECLECTIC CAPSULES.
excellent green tea

I drank Prince of Peach (taidz pai) for many years, first in China then in the US. When iHerb was sold out, I tried Dalfour, whose fruit preserves I already admired. Turns out to be a fine green tea that does not upset my stomach (as P of P sometimes does). I infuse in warm water (not hot) for 15 minutes or so while I eat my breakfast and drink my orange juice. This is really green tea, not white tea.
For aging joints
The 3 G's: garlic, ginger, ginkgo. Although I often eat Chinese food with ginger, I take one of these everyday. Organic and vegetarian.
ONE OF THE MOST RESILIENT PLANTS IN THE WORLD
DISTINGUISH ROOT AND LEAF: THEY HAVE MUCH DIFFERENT EFFECTS. ECLECTIC IS THE BEST: ORGANIC, VEGETARIAN, FRESH.
I have tried dozens of multiple vitamin-mineral supplements. Did not realize for sometime that Eclectic Institute has this muliple, with and without iron. It is one of the few companies that suggests 2 per day if you have a normal diet compared to 6 per day if you are sick or depleted or an athlete. It is a basic formula--no green foods, cultured in yeast, etc. It is vegetarian. I take 1 in the morning and 1 at night.
EXCELLENT FLUORIDE TOOTHPASTE
HAVE USED THIS FOR 4 MONTHS, USING SOME PERIOBRITE WITH IT (FOLLOWING SUGGESTION OF ANOTHER USER). GUMS ARE MUCH BETTER, AND NO CAVITIES.
works for me
See my review for Periobrite. I just want to add that this is the kind of mouthwash that you look forward to using in the morning.
works for me
I have used this for about 1 month (with Periowash) and my teeth are stronger and cleaner (they are old teeth now) and my gums are getting much better (recent gum problems provoked me to try this). I would not use without Periowash, however, as that seems to do as much (or more) good.
my kind of company
Eclectic Institute mostly packages single herbs, many organic or at least wild-crafted, no binders or fillers. I no longer take any sort of combination. Instead I have gradually learned (by trial and error) what my body seems to need. A few (like gingko) I take 3 times daily, but most I take only once. I think Eclectic is the best company in this business. This review stands for all Eclectic single herb/fruit products that I have tried.
fine, fresh, effective
If you do not drink cranberry juice, or cannot find it with low sugar, 2 of these a day are the best thing. I have no problem recommending any of Eclectic Institute's herbs, usually vegetarian and organic, as in this case.
