This is a very good brand of Pau D' Arco. I make the tea for consumption as well as for applying to an affected area of my skin. It is most beneficial. As a (young!) middle-aged woman :), my body has gone through changes. Being a very rhythmic dancer in my day, I have discovered, after getting into a Zumba exercise class over a year ago, that I found it very difficult to follow the rhythm of the dance exercises - I was just outdone but I knew that it had to do with some health issues such as hormal imbalances and hypothyroidism. Recently, after a month's absence from my class, and after being on this tea for exactly the same amount of time simultaneously, I resumed my class two days ago. I was in for a wonderful surprise; I had no problem with my rhythm doing these exercises! And I know it is due to the health benefits of this Pau D' Arco tea! My nails now look so healthy as well, and my singing voice, which had nearly failed me, is much stronger now. I know that Pau D' Arco benefits all of the systems of the body to bring healing and balance. I thank God for blessing us with His wonderful medicines from nature and for giving me the wisdom and the knowledge to receive these tremendous life saving gifts.
Product is probably very effective

For a short while I was taking this product along with Pau D' Arco tea for eczema, but I believe that was a mistake. I noticed that each time I took the two together, I would get an immensely sore and stiff right elbow. When I would leave off the Complete Tissue & Bone, and drink the tea alone, I would not experience the problem with my elbow. If nothing else, it just says to me that this product is effective but perhaps was not the correct product for addressing my health issue. (Dr. Christopher, on a video, explained how effective Complete Tissue & Bone was in curing skin eruptions/eczema, and by me combining it with the Pau D' Arco tea, may have been too much of an aggressive approach to my situation).
Great for my son, but not so for me

I bought the chlorophyll for both my young adult son and myself. For me, there had been no noticeable benefit whatsoever. However, for my son, he has benefitted substantially - the product being an energizer for him and keeping him regular. I bought this for him because he'd had a terrible accident at work where a steel door fell down on his head. Our chiropractor said that the blow basically "knocked his head off." Everything in his body was so out of balance and misaligned and his organ function greatly compromised. I know that chlorophyll is a regenerative, detoxifier, is a parasitical and just an all-around healing agent. Because of the magnesium content, it has the potential to keep chiropractic adjustments in place longer, something which magnesium alone will do. On another occasion, my son broke his wrist in two places. He saw a doctor who'd concluded that my son should have surgery which I was adamantly against. I sent him the chlorophyll and comfrey root tincture but of the two, he only used the chlorophyll. Each subsequent visit to the doctor's office, the doctor was amazed that the bone in the wrist was healing on its own. Subsequently, there was no surgery and not even a cast on my son's wrist; he only wore a sling for a very short time. By the grace of God, the chlorophyll healed his broken bone.
I experienced immediate relief an signs of healing with this product. Extremely pleased with it. My only complaint is that the content is too little. I ordered this product to take with me on vacation a couple of weeks ago, and fortunately it lasted me the ten days that I was gone - generally, I applied it 1 to 2 times a day. I was thankful that I had just enough to use for the duration of my vacation. I would add too, that skin eruptions/eczema MUST be treated from the inside out, that being with the appropriate herbal medicine and a mucusless diet. Skin eruptions are evidence of imbalance in the body and waste overburdening the eliminative organs such as the lungs, liver, and kidneys. The skin is the largest eliminating organ that we have. I would recommed this product for certain to anyone combatting any sort of skin issue.
Somewhat beneficial and better than Sovereign Silver
After the first bottle of the Silver Biotic, I believe that there was some help for my recent onset of eczema. My face was briefly stricken with eczema, but I noticed that after several doses of it on the day that it came through the mail, my facial eczema cleared up basically overnight. I bought two more bottles, the last one of which I purchased with IHerb, which has a very good price, compared to regular retail prices. I can't say that it was helpful with my upper torso eczema, the other greatly affected area...I didn't recognize any benefit there. Realizing that eczema is fungal, I am using a few other things and have gotten rapid response and relief from Pau D' Arco inner bark tea. Incidentally, am not so sure that I would regard this product as cost effective. If I were to take as much in one day that I've read where other users have, the bottle would be gone in one day. This bottle I ordered was gone in about three days and that's only because I was stretching the doses that I was taking.
Wasn't useful for my condition
I recently had a skin eruption that has been moderately severe. I started taking the Silver Biotics to combat any infection that might've been going on and then learned about their skin gel. After reading positive feedback about it, even though I resisted the idea that a gel would be soothing to eczema, I went on and ordered it. I didn't get past the first application because for eczema, it was so drying and I already had a real itch going on. I would not recommend this product for eczema. However, I do believe it would probably be a good product for stings, bites, etc..., IHerb does not refund purchase prices on opened item which I was very disappointed about. Thankfully, after contacting the manufacturer and supplying them with my proof of purchase, they have agreed to refund me the money...although I am still waiting for the refund.

After just a very few days on this product, I'd say less than seven days, I woke up one morning feeling quite energized. Since that time, about two weeks later, my raise in energy has maintained itself. Thus far, this is the only noticeable benefit, but I am truly grateful for the improved energy. I would recommend this product to others and I would purchase the Grapeseed Complete with Pine Bark again. It is certainly less expensive than pycnogenol but just as effective. The price for this product at Iherb is certainly incomparable.

I am very pleased with the Country Life, BioChem, brand of Pycnogenol. My husband and I both began it together. We recognized almost immediate results with him and I saw results for myself within two weeks time. I would like to continue with this brand but it is not cost effective. There are only 30 capsules in the 100mg. bottle and between my husband and me taking 2 to 3 capsules a day each, the bottle is empty. (I ordered two bottles from the beginning though).
I have been buying this toothbrush for several years because I won't use the nylon brushes on my teeth, knowing that wood (which the bristles are made from) are natural to the teeth, non-damaging to the enamel, and very effective. I buy the Adult Soft because the Adult Hard is extremely hard and the soft is more like a medium in the nylon brushes...it's not too soft at all. IHerb's price is much better than the natural foods markets that I shop. Thanks IHerb also for your quick deliveries and low shipping prices.
A Great Product
I ordered this to take with me on vacation to use as an alternate to the Pau D' Arco tea. It's not always easy to make or take the tea when one is on the move, so the tinctures are a very worthy alternative when on the go. I now also mix several drops of this in EVOO along with Tea Tree oil and between the three, it is an excellent healing combination to apply to skin eruptions/eczema! I definitely recommend this product.
Not so good for moisturizing
Posted by Reviewer1768681 on Jul 22, 2010
I ordered the Nubian Heritage Raw Shea Butter Soap to go along with the raw shea butter that I have been using in place of lotion and because of all the positive feedback from othe reviewers of the soap. I was disappointed though to discover that I still had to moisturize my skin after using the soap. In fact, I could see the residue of the soap on my skin after rinsing and drying off the soap. But before purchasing the soap, I had read other reviews that said that the soap moisturized so well that using lotion became unecessary. Perhaps it just wasn't right for me. Other than that, the smell of the soap is very pleasant and appealing and a bar seems to last an average of at least a week's time.
An improvement over Ecos laundry detergent
Used this just a couple of days ago on some white lingerie. It did a pretty decent job on the whites but left a small residue of oil that had gotten on a bra. I probably would buy this product again. By the way, it has a very pleasant, clean, and fresh fragrance.
