copper for hemoglobin and iron absorption

Posted on Oct 01, 2012

I prefer this as a copper supplement instead of liquid chlorophyl because it is in micro amounts that I can absorb. The chlorophyl products have about 4 mg of copper per serving and I think it might be the inorganic type of copper that is added. This ionic solution came from sea water so it absorbs better for me. It gives me some energy and at the same time relaxes me without the sedated feeling I was getting from Now triple strength chlorophyl. I mix the ionic copper into my Yaeama chlorella drink with a pinch of Frontier icelandic kelp (laminaria digita). The small amount of iron in the chlorella powder seems to get absorbed well with the addition of the ionic copper. I know this because iron usually makes my skin itch and my scalp sting. That's because iron by itself boosts the immune system causing inflammatory attack. But copper activates cerulaplasmin enzyme which controls iron and stops inflammation. I have read that Copper can be helpful for arthritis, varicous veins, hemorroids, wrinkles, sagging skin, grey hair,brittle falling hair, achy joints, and swollen ankles by building hemoglobin, connective tissue/elastin. And because it builds connective tissue and collagin it is vital to the structure of bone matrix. Copper also helps the thyroid by activating enzymes that the gland needs such as tyrosinase. If iodine and selenium make your hair fall out, it could be due to copper deficiency since copper can stop the immune system from attacking the follicles. Some hair formulas contain copper peptides to stimulate growth, but dietary copper is more important that topical potions. The best source of copper is organ meats, kelp, cashews, sunflower seeds. Lesser amounts in almonds. $5 off iherb with coupon code QAT476. I took one star off for the taste so I add to an iron containing green drink, then I don't taste it.

A little too sweet.

Posted on Jul 08, 2012

Really smooth creamy taste reminiscent of peanut butter cups. Just would prefer less sugar. Love the cocoa butter, really stands out on my taste buds. They should really switch to organic whole cane sugar. $5 off first iherb purchase coupon code QAT476.

Wonderful scent but doesn't last, it's gone as soon as I spray it.

I need to spray a lot on my pillow to detect anything.

Rose petal soap

Posted on Oct 17, 2011

Good lather, but scent is too strong and soapy. Non-drying for body, drying for face. Nice to see a palm oil soap. I use on body but not armpits because it makes them smell acidic.

Not quite lavender - fast shipping

Posted on Sep 26, 2011

Cleans really well. Socks were always yellow with Tide free. Used one pod with a little Tide free on large load and socks were white as new on bottom. But the scent is way too strong and smells strongly of patchouli, no trace of lavender or vanilla. Bothers my nose and throat. But no itch like Tide Original. I would prefer a cardboard box of powder to control the quantity, rather than a plastic bag of pods.

Not very roasted

Posted on Sep 26, 2011

This is a good unsweetened "no-stir" peanut butter with healthy palm oil, but it must be very barely roasted because it's a mild flavour. Maybe they're using a lighter coloured peanut, too. A little more grinding would make it oilier; it is a tad dry. That would be more processing, though. Maranatha has a more roasty flavour, but there's sugar in it, so will probably buy Justin's again. Less processing and no sugar is best for me.

Diluted with almonds

Posted on Sep 26, 2011

This is good, not great. I mix it with coconut oil and it becomes velvety smooth and rich tasting. It has just enough sugar and I could go with less. Since they use almonds and hazelnuts in it the flavour is not hazelnutty enough. Don't see the need for almonds except to make it cheaper. The big plus for me is there is no canola oil or milk powder.

Have to use a lot

Posted on Oct 17, 2011

This does not compare to Dr Mist. I wish iherb carried Dr Mist. This one just doesn't work with less than 5 or 6 sprays. On running shoes too, Dr Mist blows it away.

Misleading package wording.

Posted on Dec 26, 2014

I thought it was a great product at first. But the more I take it the more I seem to have strange symtoms like flaking chipped nails, although it gives a good colour to my skin at 6 to 8 caps per day. If it is causing mineral depletion to my finger nails then that's an indication that it is synthetic C. I emailed Garden of Life about this strange wording on the package. This is their detailed explanation: "Thank you for your email and interest in Garden of Life's products. This is to confirm that there is no ascorbic acid in our VC RAW Vitamin C. The Vitamins and Minerals that are in our Vitamin Code Products are in a whole-food form made with RAW Food-Created Nutrients. This process utilizes a single isolated vitamin or mineral (from food) that is fed to the yeast or probiotic. A specific peptide designed for that particular nutrient is then introduced in order to allow the nutrient to be metabolized (or absorbed) through the yeast's cell wall. This process mimics nature, just like when a plant takes an inorganic mineral salt that is naturally occurring in the soil (selenium for example), and absorbs it into its roots, the plant becomes rich in selenium. This process is conducted with two distinct organisms - S. cerevisiae (baker's yeast) and L. bulgaricus (probiotic culture used in traditional yogurt recipes which is non-dairy). Cultivated with their unique Code Factors intact, the RAW Food-Created Nutrients in Vitamin Code formulas enable natural recognition of nutrients by your body, just as nature intended. Code Factors are the known and yet to be discovered synergistic compounds found in food and are necessary for proper nutrient delivery. Providing these Code Factors infuses the essential elements of whole-foods that the body thrives upon. The Vitamin C is not coming from the Fruit and Vegetable Blend. That blend is added as a base to put the nutrients in to prevent us from using artificial fillers and binders." Hope this helps. FYI, a retired army flight surgeon has urged the CDC to study high dose vitamin C for Ebola because the disease is very similar to advanced scurvy.

Don't like scent

I don't know what species of rose this is from but I just don't like it. I will stick to rose water.

Contains a cortisol mimic

Posted on Dec 08, 2014

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.
