Very good

Posted on Oct 06, 2013

14 people found the following review helpful

Nice and crisp with a smooth taste. Larger than the store bought ones I'm used to from Central Roast. Only a few had a slight mould taste, and none were rancid. I've had trouble getting brazil nuts without a lot of rancid ones in the batch lately. No batch is perfect but this brand is above others I've tried. By the way you can't get too much selenium from brazil nuts. That is a myth. Dr Wilson writes that much research on selenium done in China determined that the toxicity does not occur until 4990 micrograms. But that could depend on iodine intake. China eats more seaweed than we do. Each brazil nut is about 20-50 mcg of selenium. Balance your selenium with iodine and copper. All help the thyroid. Iodine from dulse, kelp or cod liver oil; copper from cashews, lamb's liver, sage, basil, and oregano. Your thyroid and your hair will thank you. Also some copper in brazii nuts. Selenium is a mercury magnet. Great for detox. And selenium helps produce glutathione enzymes and superoxide dismutase which is a copper dependent enzyme. Selenium, copper and iodine all protect our body from radiation so if you are sensitive to your computer and wifi areas, you could be a little low on these minerals.

Love this.

Wish it came in larger bottles. Very alkalizing internally. Not much armpit odour anymore. The first dose really woke up my senses and gave me an oxygenated feeling without hyperness. I put 15 drops in water in morning after Indiumease, and another 5 or ten in afternoon.

But not as good as Pure Indian Foods brand which is more yellow and flavourful. However, I can't afford the $30 shipping with them. Very glad iherb carries a comparable product for a great shipping rate that usually comes like a bullet across the Canadian border the very next day. Thanks also for the free sampes of Cococeps.

Contains a cortisol mimic

Posted on Dec 08, 2014

4 people found the following review helpful

I don't know why supplement companies can't stop using fillers in their products. Instead of the usual toxic fillers like stearic acid (sometimes listed as "vegetable lubricant" so we don't know, some companies like this one and pure synergy have switched to manioc root as a filler. This is yucca root, which contains saponins. Saponins mimic cortisol in our body but it is not real cortisol. I couldn't figure out why Alive C was making me agitated and gave me a bad case of the shivers. I know that cortisol places thyroid hormone into the cells, so my thyroid level must have dropped due to the cortisol blocking effects of the manioc root. (?) My gut feeling that it did. I also woke up at 3AM with a bad headache when I took the product at bedtime. I am going to stick with camu camu powder, which iherb also sells, and give up on trying to find a high dose natural C. Madre Labs has great looking product, but sadly has worse fillers than Alive C. Vitamin C is supposed to ease stress by helping the adrenals not stress them, so I know it is probably the manioc root filler that is the cause. This product might not be good for high blood pressure because of the saponins. Do some research before buying.

Long lasting

I bought one of these about 3 years ago for my bedroom at a health store and it's still burning. I was worried about the filament being damaged in shipping but the bubble wrap kept it nice and stable. Good packing from iherb.

You need to take minerals for it to work.

I got this mainly for my grey hair and thyroid. Within a few weeks of taking this my teeth became smoother and less yellow. Sleep improved and awoke more easily but the the greys only changed to white so they still stuck out. I've been taking for a year with no further improvement. Then 2 weeks ago I started 2-AEP calcium and my grey hair is almost completely brown. It is mixed with shiny blond and copper highlights, definitely not grey at all. Calcium is involved with hair pigment and blood circulation, but it has to get to the hair. I think Indiumease needs you to take the minerals you are deficient in to give it something to work with. $5 off first iherb purchase coupon code QAT476.

Don't like very much

Posted on Nov 03, 2011

2 people found the following review helpful

Cleans great. Sometimes does not dissolve. Found 2 large chunks in machine. Very abrasive to fabrics and is harsh on lungs, and causes itch after a few hours of wearing the clothes. Will have to use Dr Bronner's soap for now and see if it's cost effective.

Plant based (curry leaves)

Posted on Mar 01, 2013

1 person found the following review helpful

The only iron supplement I can take. Every other product seems to be from rocks, or has herbs added. I was buying the Organic Iron by Medicinal Neutraceutics which looks like the same product as this but was less than $12 and had 60 caps, not 50. However iherb discontinued it and I now buy this. I take it with Eidon Ionic Copper because copper helps iron absorb and my copper levels are low. The curry leaf iron does not give me any stomach problems like other iron products have. My skin tone is better-it brings healthy colour to my face. But the price is way too much for only 50 caps. I hope iherb can bring back the Medicinal Neutraceutics version. $5 off with coupon code QAT476.

Micronized is better absorbed.

Posted on Jul 08, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Best price I've ever seen for pregnenolone and even better because it's micron sized particles. Can't believe how well it makes my thyroid work. And it cannot overstimulate the gland. Safest hormone balancer you can take because it's impossible to overdose like you could with dhea. Read what Ray Peat PHD says about it. $5 off first iherb purchase coupon code QAT476.

This form of calcium is turning my grey hairs back to brown very rapidly. I only started it 2 weeks ago and most of my greys have turned a lovely coppery brown. It was auburn brown in my teens. The greys went to a lustrous off white blond, then golden blond, then copper and finally deep light brown. So I have pretty streaks of blond and copper against the browns. No grey, although some along the sides of my head are stubbornly still a shiny ash blond, but there's about half as much as the deeper pigmented coppers and brown. It has also warmed my body temperature up enough that I no longer need thyroid hormone. Very new research since 2009 on calcium and body temperature. Gives me energy and clearer thinking, too. I've been using Indiumease for a year and it did not help my hair colour until I added this calcium product. 2-amino ethanol phosphate is part of the myelin sheath and stops toxins from entering the cell membrane, and keeps nutrients from escaping out of it.

Not strong enough

I will have to stick with the 1mg tabs. Micrograms aren't enough for me.

Cooks great - quick shipping to Toronto

Posted on Jul 08, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Stays soft and liquidy in the jar and I have it in the basement cupboard. Much better quality than Tropical Traditions which I was using before. Really prevents chicken from sticking and burning when I add a little ghee to the pan. I drizzle the cooked oil onto the chicken with spices. It carmelizes nicely when cooked without burning and turning toxic. Red palm oil prevents food from oxidizing because it has so many antioxidants: alpha carotene, beta carotene, lycopene, 10 other carotenes, full spectrum vitamin E, and co-enzyme Q10. $5 off first iherb purchase coupon code QAT476.
