No bad Basil
As far as I'm concerned, Basil oil is the best kept secret of human health. One drop of Basil combined with a drop of Lavender is magic on muscle spasms. And it is my favorite remedy for a dancer's pains. Plus, mosquitoes don't seem to like it! The pleasant scent has gotten many a compliment. It doesn't smell like Pesto sauce.. instead there is a deep, almost licorice, undertone. When my bottle arrived, just opening the little plastic bag around it made me heady. I love this stuff.
This stuff rocks

I have found Black Walnut Hulls to be especially helpful in relieving bloating, and as a complement to enzymes or HCl which help with digestion.
Goes on smoothly--easy to layer
This is a lovely color, very close to my natural blush color. I'm naturally fair-skinned, but after years in the tropics I have a bit of leftover yellow-ish tan. So when considering whether to get the cooler pink or warmer peach, you might also figure in how much of a tan you have. It is possible to be fair/light skinned and still be on the warm spectrum. The peach livens up my skin tone without looking artificial. People say, "You're looking perky today!", or "You seem to be healthy!" I like how it works when applying. There's no greasy feel, as so many have said, nor is there a mineral-y sparkly sheen. Instead you get a kind of translucent glow, which is great for my over-50 complexion. It's easy to smooth in, and when you apply a second stroke it deepens the color slightly, so you can layer it carefully by degrees. Just about the perfect blush, in my book!
Real enzymes, enjoyable way to take them
Sometimes I don't need a whole capsule's worth of enzymes. With these little tablets I can gauge the amount I want for the foods I've eaten. It's not a broad spectrum enzyme, but it definitely helps at mealtimes. I'm coming to like them more and more.
gently softens deposits
My experience with Chanca Piedra, or "Break-Stone" is that it is a very gentle herb that gradually softens deposits so the body can get rid of them. Since there are different kinds of mineral deposits, I'm sure a person should research more deeply about which ones are affected by this herb. This product is a nice way to take the herb, and it really helped me with salivary stones. Some people also drink it in a tea--one reviewer said she emptied the capsules into a tea bowl. But bring it to your doctor's attention before you use it, since minerals are so key to the body's health, you don't want to upset the balance. Still, this herb might just be part of restoring that balance. I felt the price was fair, and the herb was effective. The scientific name for the herb is Phyllanthus Niruri.
Yummy, but take with wisdom
These are a really pleasant way to prep the sensitive tummy for a meal. But don't make my mistake and take too many. Even with the "G" removed from the licorice, some people can experience edema if too many of the supplement are eaten in a short period of time. I've placed my next order, but I'll be using with caution, and adding in daily lemonade to the mix. (and, yes, I can drink lemonade again .. so thank you DGL!)
Dissolves well, boost of energy, good price
I'm very happy with this product. I have looked for an easy-to-dissolve B-12 lozenge and this one fills the bill. A friend once gave me the use of hers in an emergency, and they dissolved even better, however this brand is much more affordable than hers. I take two of these with one MegaFolinic when I need a boost. But don't take them right before bedtime, or bedtime might be delayed! This is my third time purchasing them.
Preferred form of B12
Posted by Reviewer1853074 on Mar 22, 2011
This particular B12 supplement is especially accessible. They dissolve easily under the tongue. The flavor is pleasant enough. What is noteworthy is that this particular blend includes both forms of B12 and Folic Acid - essential for health.
Luuuuv Teeccino, and especially Hazelnut!
If you haven't tried Teeccino yet, this might be the way to start. You prepare it as you would coffee grounds. I use unbleached coffee filters and make myself a rich cupful. The thing about Teecchino is instead of making your body more acid and hyped up, it can actually be alkalizing (depending on what decorations you've added to your cup), and gives a gentle lift due to the foods contained within. It's just slightly sweet, so you can drink it black, and it also takes a creamer nicely. When I serve it hot with pastries, it makes a lovely treat for breakfast or brunch.
I've tried different flavors of MRM protein powders, and I like this one because it's vegan, has a pleasant flavor, and is a perfect addition to my morning green smoothies to make them a complete meal. I don't use it for weight gain nor loss--just for the nutrition itself. I like that the enzymes are added to balance the protein. This one has both rice and pea. Normally pea is indigestible to me, but in this format I still like it. Some days it seems a little chalky to me, but I just take that as a signal that I don't need it today. Other days I combine it with chai spice and hot water for an absolutely yummy faux-chai. And lately I've started making a strong milk by combining with water and a banana, and pouring that over my granola. All-in-all, this is the most tasty and disgestible protein powder I've found.
An essential for my over 50-ness
I just wish someone had told me about this cream when menapause hit. I could have been relieved of a lot of ups and downs and physical shocks. I now keep it around for maintenance whenever it feels like age is winning the battle. A girlfriend even uses it as skin toner, though I'd be watchful of dosages in that case. Anyway, this is the good stuff, as far as I'm concerned.
The good form of B12
This is the good form of B12. From what I've read, you really need to combine it with folic acid and B-6. I've found my optimum dosage is around 2 tabs daily. This specific product brought me back from a serious B-12 depletion condition, so I'm a staunch believer. On doctor told me that if you're a vegetarian or raw foodist, you should look seriously into a daily regimen of B-12 supplementation--so ask your doc about it and see if he/she agrees.
