Middle of the road until they update their label

Posted on Jul 30, 2013

4 people found the following review helpful

I have taken Garden of Life Probiotics over the years, starting with Primal Defense Ultra, then switching to RAW Probiotics Men 50 & Wiser when it came out, and just recently over to the newer one (RAW Ultimate Care). I feel they do a good job of helping to regulate the digestive system, but, I would *really* like to know what I'm taking in terms of probiotics. The label lists 32 strains at 85 billion CFU (colony forming units), but it is virtually useless as it does not break down the CFU count per strain. So, there really is no way to know how much of any one strain there is in the product, or how balanced it is. For EXAMPLE, the product COULD be, say, 95% Lactobacillus plantarum, with all the other strains making up less than 5% of each capsule. We have no way of knowing, as they don't say on the label. I am of the opinion that IN GENERAL, if supplements are well balanced and have meaningful amounts of ingredients, the manufacturer would WANT to make sure it is stated on the label. If it's NOT, then it means they are CONCEALING ingredient amounts. Still, the product does seem to be very helpful and I have been a user for at least the past 4-5 years. 5 stars if they change their labeling practices.

"New and Improved"

Posted on Nov 03, 2013

4 people found the following review helpful

Bluebonnet calls this "New and Improved." Here's the label from the older version: Green Tea Leaf Extract: 450 mg Polyphenols: 400 mg Catechins: 335 mg EGCG: 200 mg Green Tea Leaf Powder: 25 mg Now look at the new version: Green Tea Leaf Extract: 350 mg Polyphenols: 332 mg Catechins: 262 mg EGCG: 157 mg Now, explain how that is "new and improved." How Orwellian.

One of the few that actually tells you how much

Posted on Aug 14, 2009

2 people found the following review helpful

There are a lot of multi ingredient powder products like this available, and many of them have extensive lists of ingredients, but they don't tell you how much of each ingredient they contain. For all you know, it *could* be mostly a few cheap ingredients with very very little of the much more expensive ones. If it *did* contain significant quantities of *all* the ingredients, they would be *proud* to say so on the label. Rainbow Vibrance is a rarity in that it lists the *full* amount of each ingredient on the label, and there are significant amounts of each ingredient. It also tastes VERY good. I recommend adding 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of Now Stevia sweetener, and blending it with a nice fruit juice blend such as V8 Fusion Light. Another tip: use a battery powered milk frother to blend it. It's powerful enough to get rid of all the lumps but gentle enough to not turn the whole thing into foam.

Excellent supplement for cats

Posted on Jun 22, 2009

My cat has chronic renal failure, and as part of his therapy, my vet recommended an omega supplement. I selected this one not only for the quality, but for the pill size and 100% fish oil content. There are a lot of omega supplements and most of them are too large for cats. My cat is a very small cat under 10 pounds and he has no trouble swallowing the Eskimo-3 pill. I give him one per day. (For a regular healthy cat, I would personally only recommend one pill every other day.) A lot of omega supplements also contain flax seed oil, which converts into omega-3 in humans, but not in cats. Since Eskimo-3 100% fish oil, I can be sure my cat is getting a full dose of omegas.

Seems to work good, tastes worse than Ave, unsure about controversy

Posted on Feb 01, 2010

There is controversy surrounding this product. The Avemar website stopped linking to American Biosciences, and now includes the following text: "We, the co-inventors of Avemar, want to make a note that AveUltra and Avemar are two different sets of compounds hence the qualities of Avemar can be attributed exclusively to Avemar therefore all references of AveUltra to Avemar is scientifically unfounded, deceptive and abundantly unethical." This challenge comes from three of the original Hungarian co-founders, who are challenging the main founder's new "AveUltra" product and his decision to shut down the factory in Hungary and instead produce the new AveUltra in the USA. At this point it personally seems more political and business related than anything else, but the fact that this controversy exists is unsettling. I have tried AveUltra and it has a much less pleasant taste than the original Ave. At this point I can't attest to anything else regarding the new product, other than sporadic availability (so far). I have read that the founder plans on phasing out all Ave in favor of the new AveUltra which he plans to produce only in the United States. Not sure how this is going to play out and affect availability of the product in the coming months.

Bad advice printed on the product label

Posted on Jul 17, 2009

I rate the product 4 stars, but take 3 away due to the illogical information posted on the label and the lack of response from Vibrant Health. This product is advertised as containing high levels of probiotics. However, the label recommends storing the product in the freezer. This *will* kill the probiotics, as they are cellular organisms that are unable to survive freezing (the process damages the cell walls). For many of the species listed, refrigeration (also recommended as "second best" on the label) is also unnecessary and can have undesirable effects due to introduced moisture through condensation. When I sent the company a message asking about this, they did not reply.

Watered down

Posted on Sep 07, 2013

This used to be one of the best pure Acai juices on the market. The product that I recently received from iHerb has clearly been watered down. I would say at the very least it looks like it's about one part water to two parts juice. I tried e-mailing Dynamic Health using their online web form asking about this, including the lot number and bottle information, and they did not reply. Very sad.
