An absolute essential for myself, my family and my patients. Brilliant at all "overwhelmed" states, including bereavement, stress, sleeplessness etc. Also great for fear, anxiety, panic attacks. Highly, highly effective. With no side effects or withdrawal symptoms I recommend this 100 times for every time I recommend prescription anti-anxiety medicines. Grounding, calming, nurturing. Not just sedating - it also has an energetic quality (that is the point of chinese herbal medicine) that is soothing and nourishing to the heart. Brilliant and effective product.
The taste is impossible!
Posted by Reviewer2348333 on Apr 24, 2010
I am NO wimp when it comes to health foods. Juice spirulina, swallow clay by the teaspoon, take herbs by the teaspoon rather than capsules. And I imagine this stuff is super healthy. But the taste! Oh my the taste! Like sulphurous wind mixed with the worst of beans. I cannot manage it. Not regularly. In an emergency yest. But simply not do-able on a daily basis. And I am usually pretty brave with this sort of stuff. Maybe it would work if you mixed it with bananas and juice and stuff. But that is not the point for me. It is supposed to be healthy and convenient ALL ON ITS OWN. And all on its own, it is simply too unpleasant to drink. Yuk! Back to the spirulina, flax oil and clay.Yum by comparison.
The best value

Absolutely the best value Hyaluronic formula. When you take just two or three tablets a day you get all you need - in terms of osteoarthritis and joint health. This stuff is amazing. Loads of the right type of collagen. Lots of bio-available hayaluronic acid. A good dose of MSM - builds joints/repairs them. Gucosamine in a high dose . And finally Chondroitin which is probably better than glucosamine. This is the best joint formula I have found. Been using it for years and with lots of patients. I do always add in Celadrin and in there is current infammation - there usually is - then also Zyflammend from New Chapter is invaluable. Good luck - this is the best value all-rounder out there.
Good long term results

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
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.

Really works. What I would say to anyone who has sleep difficulties is that different sleep remedies work for different people. That is because there are so many different casues of the imbalance which causes insommnia. For some, valerain works great. For others it is GABA. Theanine works for many but certainly not all. Lots of magnesium and calcium works for some. Hops, lemon balm, chamomile in combination are useful for certain people. And I have found that Zizyphus, the main ingredidient in this Jarrow forumula - is great for certain types of insommnia. This absolutely not just "another herb". It has properties beyond that - the Chinese believe it helps sleeplessness caused by an imbalance in the heart energies. Certainly helps me and even during the day sometimes if I need more calm. By bottom line advice is to try DIFFERENT remedies. The address different issues and one of them is likely to work even if the frst few do not. And there is also evidence that adding a few ingredients together helps better as they work synergistically. Best of luck. Snore , Snore.
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.
High Potency and very effective

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.
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!
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.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Use it all the time on my face. After any skin peels. Whenever skin breaks out. To and richness to creams. Have quite a few expensive creams and potions in bathroom cupboard. But the thing that gets used most is this stuff. Healing, calming, nourishing. But no breakouts. Too rich to use in the day. But great at night. Or a drop mixed with day cream. Also good on rash, on razor burn (is anti-inflammatory), on sun burn etc.

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.
