The only product that helped my Adrenals!!!
Posted by Reviewer2227545 on Jan 12, 2010
My adrenals have been fatigued for many years. I have tried a variety of herbs, vitamins & chiropractic and nothing helped. I also tried a variety of things to de-stress. I then read J. Wilson's book "Adrenal Fatigue" - excellent book. From it I decided to try Adrenal Cortex which I had not tried before. I am only 110 lbs & took this product 3 times a day. Usually my DHEA is low, after taking this my DHEA came back high! I have cut back to once a day. I have a new respect for glandulars!
Love the enteric coating
The enteric coating allows the enzymes to be released where it should be - in the intestines and not the stomach. We tried NOW's pancreatic product but my daughter's sensitive stomach reacted to it. We have noticed a lessening of gas and repeating of food since using this product.
Exceptional Stress Buster

My daughter suffers from anxiety and bouts of depression. Her holistic doctor suggested Celestial's Tension Tamer tea three times a day. After a week or two we all noticed a marked improvement but she could not stand drinking the tea. After looking for a pill form alternative I found "Stress Free". She takes this 3 times a day on an empty stomach. I also give her Eleuthro twice a day. It has continued to help lessen my daughter's anxiety and she is better able to handle stress. I like the adaptogens in this formula.

I have been taking SAM-e (200 mg) every morning on an empty stomach for years. It is VERY effective in keeping away depression. I found it also helps with joint pain - used in conjunction with hylauronic acid. With these 2 supplements I am able to bend for long periods of time and get up with out pain. Last month I ran out of SAM-e and didn't may much attention to it. A couple of days after stopping SAM-e I noticed a BIG difference in my mood. I became depressed easily. It was as if black clouds hovered over me. I started back on the SAM-e and the black clounds passed.
did not work in lowering cholestrol

Tried this product and other flush free in an attempt to lower my husband's and my mother's cholestrol. My husband was taking 6/day. For them both it did nothing. BUT when I switched them to the regular niacin (the kind that makes you flush) - the results were more than magnificant. Total down, HDL up, LDL down, triglyclerides down. Start low - best to use tablets first so you can cut in half and move up. I gave my hubby too much and his cholestrol went down to 150. He now takes about 1/2 of what he used to. This was all with the regular niacin. As I said we had no results with the flush free.
The best absorbable magnesium

I have tried this as well as magnesium citrate and malate but there is nothing like magnesium chloride. When I wander away to another form my left leg develops a deep tissue twitch and my back muscles actually burn. I take it on an empty stomach 3 times a day.
directions don't make sense
Posted by Reviewer2227545 on Jun 02, 2012
My daughter and I have both been fighting candida and I decided to try the tactic of using enzymes to puncture holes in their armor and take supplements to kill them. There is an enzyme is this product (Chitosanase) that is supposed to do that eat holes in their armor. Problem with the directions: it states to take with meals. Enzymes taken with meals will only digest the food. Enzyme therapy (for ailments,condidtions) directs to take on an empty stomach. In case I was wrong - or there is something special about chitosanase I checked the directions from Klaire Labs on their Interfase product. Similiar product with chitosanse to breakdown candida - and they say -- take on empty stomach. I have ordered the product but not taken it as of yet. I will update you on the results of our new strategy.
not for weak hair

I bought this conditioner for my daughter. She lost more than 1/2 of her hair to low thyroid and candida. The candida has been a big issue. She uses Auromere's neem and aloe shampoo to help contain the dandruff (from the candida) and likes it alot. She tried this but it is too heavy. When applying it it just pulls the hair out from her scalp.
This product worked great on my son's headache. I opened the capsule in applesauce. While it tasted gross he finished it and it worked quickly to relieve the head pain. I then tried it on my 83 yr old mother who suffers with summer allergies and head and eye pain. It did not make a bit of difference.

My 83 yr. old mother consistently suffered from diarrhea over the past few years. She has taken prescription meds to stop it – which it would work for a short period of time. I then tried Slippery Elm and that helped some but never cleared it up totally. Then I tried Culturelle and she received immediate relief that has lasted. One a day is enough to do the trick. It has been over a month and things are still fine
While I love the ingredients we can't stomach the taste. I tried putting the powder, water, frozen strawberries and extra stevia in a blender thinking that would make it palatable but it did not work. Though I am not a great fan of the chocolate it is a bit better
This really works to get rid of bad breath
Posted by Reviewer2227545 on Feb 20, 2012
My teenage son had real difficulty with bad breath. Use of gum and brushing didn't seem to very help much. Out of desperation I decided to try this a year or two ago. I give him 2-3 with breakfast and 2 at dinner. I was amazed no bad breath - all day!! I just wish it came in a bigger box!! Thanks Iherb for carrying this great product.
