Did Nothing For Me

Posted on May 28, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

Sorry to be a nay-sayer. Bought this several times (I know - triumph of hope over reality!), and over the months of using it, never noticed any effect. I tried a few months on. And then a month off. Tried to remember if any difference to energy, cognition, sleep etc. Regret I could not observe any. If anything, I felt slightly more uncomfortable on it than not. It is also an incredibly expensive amount of money for 1oz of product. But that alone is by no means reason to write a negative review. The review is because it was wholly and completely ineffective for me.

Good long term results

Posted on May 11, 2009

7 people found the following review helpful

Soothing and helpful. I use this along with Natural Calm magnesium, and over a period of several weeks or even months it settled my gut - had sever IBS with severe constipation - and sometimes nothing much helped at all. Some may get short term benefit - for me it too several weeks to see full results. If you have a lot of gut problems, then I would also recommend lots of probiotics (iflora, dr Ohhira and Primal Defence are the very best on Iherb) and maybe consider 1 daily of Jarrow Glutathione and a few teaspoons a day of Permavite (which really also helps to heal the gut lining.) Good luck

A wonder supplement

Posted on Jul 19, 2011

7 people found the following review helpful

For those suffering for PCOS I cannot recommend this form of inositol too highly. Several studies show that it has - at a daily dosage of 600mg - a profound effect on glucose metabolism and testosterone levels. Both of these are dysregulated in Poly Cystic Ovary syndrome. Of those clients I have tried on this harmless, low side effect supplement, about 70% have benefited. Of those, about half foudn this to be a complete cure of the syndrome. It greatly assisted in stabilizing the glucose response curve. And reduced serum testosterone levels by about 50 - 70%. These results are supported by other practitioners and some small studies. Far better to try than anti-androgens (with all the associated problems). And infinitely better than the useless contraceptive pill. By reducing testosterone many clients find cysts are reduced, for some full menstrual cycles return, and for most, many of the nasty mood swings and horrible PMS are gone. Recommended very highly indeed.

High Potency and very effective

Posted on Oct 26, 2009

7 people found the following review helpful

Contains a brilliant combination of all of the Ayuvedic herbs found in Triphala ( a thousand year old remedy and proven by modern science) plus all of the ingredients found anti-parasite formulation recommended by Dr Hulga Clarke and Dr Christopher. As such, it is a superb Two-in-One product that supports the digestive tract in multiple ways: cleansing, killing parasites, strengthening the walls of the gut, soothing, promoting beneficial bacteria and more. You would have to purchase several products at once to the the same job and at $18 for 120 LARGE 800mg tablets, it is really very good value for money. For me, it has replaced a lot of bottles in my cupboard, keeps my bowel moving and healthy and helped get rid of nagging infections/invaders. And Planetary Herbals is a reliable, honest company specialising in such Ayurvedic products. Great product.

One of the best

I work as a nutritionist and this is one product I most regulary recommend and with most confidence. About 60% of the time I get back good reports. In the real world a 60% success rate is oustanding. I know lots of manufacturers make lots of claims about their neutraceuticals - but they are only ever talking about the success stories. In reality, most things, only help a small percentage of people. But Zyflammend is one of those things that really makes a noticable difference and fairly quickly. It is great with inflammatory sort of pain - old aching joints and limbs. Bad backs. Arthritis that sort of thing. I would add that if you have inflammatory pain then you MUST also treat yourself regularly with proteolytic enzyme therapy. These are enzymes that eat proteins and clean up inflammatory immune complexes. Thus, they go right to the heart of the cause of the pain. There are lots out there, but some I like are Virastop, Wobenzyme, Nattokinase, and those with high amounts of protease in them. Just be very careful to take them away from food or they'll end up digesting food in your stomach and won't get in the the blood to do the anti-inflammatory clean up. If you're really keen of reducing immune complexes in your blood to reduce pain then there is a stand out European product called Rechtsregulat. It is made of cascade fermented fruit and vegetables and sometimes work miracles especially where there is blood coagulation. I don't know if/where it is available in the USA. Wish Iherb would stock it. Good Luck.

AMAZING

Posted on Jul 19, 2011

7 people found the following review helpful

I have several chronic health conditions, all of which will "age" me faster than my years. Taking antioxidants to boost health and youthfulness is a MUST in such situations. This stuff is extraordinary! It contains every antioxidant you could imagine and some that are rare but amongst the most powerful ever discovered. The fact is has mycrohydrin H is awe-inspiring. Usually only specialist websites dedicated to life extension sell this sort of stuff. And Carnosine - a very high end, expensive antioxidant that has particular brain cell protective qualities. The list is endless. The vitamin E it has is the right form - the more expensive but more potent form. Every plant derived polyphenol and antioxidant imaginable (silymarin, grape skin extract etc). Bravo. This replaces 25 different supplements I was previously taking. I cannot say enough about it. If it the quantities listed are acurate, then the price is a BARGAIN. This is top-end, top-notch stuff that gives me energy and clarity of thought like no other. Stream-line your life and get this amazing life insurance policy. Thank you Source Naturals!

OUTSTANDING

Posted on Jul 19, 2011

6 people found the following review helpful

This is a truly outstanding product at a remarkable price. A One-Stop-Shop for complete cold and flu care. The main ingredients are all backed by solid, repeated scientific research as being anti-viral, anti-bacterial and boosting the immune system to fight acute infections. Olive leaf extract is one of the most reliable anti-virals in the world. Arabinogalactacs (larch extract) has outstanding immune boosting properties. Allisure - the allicin extract of garlic - is far and away the most powerful form of garlic (up to 200x more powerful than ordinary garlic extracts as allicin is usually only found in tiny amounts in garlic and is the most powerful anti-microbial element). Oregano oil speaks for itself - anti viral, anti bacterial, anti fungal. A brilliant all-rounder. And Elderberry is one of the more reliable anti-virals. You'll note I am emphasizing viruses - as this is what nearly all colds and flues are, this is what you want to hit hard. But this will also be useful for primary or secondary bacterial issues such as strep throat. I have given this to numerous clients with great success. Take is as early as possible in the onset of illness and it will often stop it in its tracks. At very least it will shorten the duration. Outstanding stuff in a small softgel and a great price. For $14 you have one stop solution to carry in your bag through the winter months.

Brilliant De-Toxifier

Posted on Jul 19, 2011

6 people found the following review helpful

Chitosan may have a long history of use for removing neurotoxins and endotoxins. But this form of it has a good low molecular weight, meaning much better absorption. For anyone struggling with Lyme, Autism, Mold injury - and you think you may be dealing with neurtoxicity, biotoxins etc - you should read the work of Dr Richie Shoemaker. He recommends Cholestyramine therapy - which he says is very effective. But it can be hard to take for various reasons (bloating, constipation, gluten sensitivity). Some alternative doctors are having success using this product instead. It is certainly hightly regarded in the alternative and naturopathic world as a powerful toxin-binding agent.

Shame on Jarrow

Posted on Jan 20, 2009

6 people found the following review helpful

This is NOT Lo Han - the natural alternative to sugar and many times sweeter. Lo Han has many proven health benefits and is delicious - see Trimedica brand. This Jarrow stuff is getting a lot of its power from Xylitol! Xylitol is incredibly sweet and in the great majority of people will trigger intestinal problems (bloating, loose stool etc) and usually comes with gentle warnings on packets. Xylitol is VERY much cheaper than Lo Han and not really the same stuff as mentioned- well noted side effects. Jarrow should be selling true Lo Han - like Trimedica which is cheaper! - and not the diluted product. Shame on Jarrow - normally a great and reliable company, by the way, I buy a ton of supplements off them.

Great form of Vitamin C

Posted on Aug 11, 2009

5 people found the following review helpful

Fully buffered, so easy on the stomach. Delivers many essential minerals in useable form. A fair bit cheaper than comparable "brand" products. And if all that weren't enough: lots of great antioxidants (grape skin, green tea etc) for free! Oh, and a fair spectrum of C type bioflavanoids. Overall great value and better for your health than ordinary ascorbic acid (plain vit c)

Love it.

Really delicious. And that matters if you are thinking of drinking it frequently. I need a very high protein diet (blood sugar issues etc) but don't want to rely on any one source. So each morning I vary my protein shake. Every third day is my favourite when I have hazelnut milk and 5 tsp of this lovely chia seed. Worth noting, by the way, that Salba - sold by Iherb for more than twice the price of this Chia seed - is just 100% Chia seeds! And not even pre-ground. The ground seeds are fresh - no ranicd oil tastes which can be risk with pre-ground omega 3 seeds - and dislove moderately in nut/rice/soya milk. I do add a bit of stevia for sweetness. But the chia has a decent taste and is somewhat sweet and nutty. Certainly nicer than soya protein powder or rice protein powder. In addition, it has tons of excellent fiber and my body thanks me for that a few hours later!!! No bloating either. Only gripe: the label is inaccurate, also the iherb listings. Chia has a lot more protein than is listed here. 5 heap tsp is about 20 -22g. Same as a good sized steak! Oh, and lots of amazing healthy oils thrown in for free. Great price, great product, entirely natural.

WOW!

Posted on Nov 26, 2010

6 people found the following review helpful

Both for myself and for my patients in my practice, I have been trying to find a reliable source of Laminara extract with high fucoidan and alginate content. For any of you wanting to detoxify - heavy metals, molds, many chemicals - this is one of the most powerful supplements out there. I have been using it with several patients and we urine test weekly. Am certainly seeing it pull heavy metals and for mold sensitive or injured individuals it has been slower, but we are seeing gradual improvements. Ron Teeguarden is a very highly respected herbalist, - Dragon herb has a very good reputation - so I have good reason to believe this product would be pure and authentic. For those of you struggling with mold - it is widely thought that the only medicine that works was cholestyramine - a prescription drug which I believe is very effective but many cannot tolerate it. There is growing evidence and laminara japonica, has a real ability to pull bio-toxins including mycotoxins (mold) from the body. Good luck. Definitely worth trying but be patient.
