One of the most IMPORTANT supplements to take
Posted by Reviewer2669743 on Nov 19, 2010
I take 3 of these daily. To boost my Vitamin D level which was down to 22 after a break off of Vitamin D. I dont think I can go much below 3-4000 daily because I hardly ever get much sun.
For coughs, this works pretty well.

I use this for something I give my children on the side, when their croup/cough is bad. Elderberry is great for respiratory support and breathing. 1 tsp every 2 hours when needed. MAKE YOUR OWN SYRUP LIKE THIS!!!!!!!!! Put 4 cups water and 2 cups dried elderberries in the crockpot on Warm. Heat in crockpot for 24 to 36 hours on warm. Mash and strain berries out. Cool. Add: 1.7 oz bottle of Echinamide, a bottle (100 capsules) of NOW brand Propolis (empty each capsule into the syrup), 1 cup Bragg&#39;s Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 cup Raw Honey, and Nutribiotic Grapefruit Seed Extract 20 drops. This keeps for several months in the refrigerator Store in Refrigerator till cool. shake well before using... Dosages are 1 Tablespoon for Adult Matenience, and 1 T. every two hours when sick. Children ages 6-12 2 tsp per day to prevent, and 2 tsp every 2 hours when sick. Children ages 1-5 1 tsp per day to prevent and 1 tsp every two hours when sick. This works out to around 4.00 for an 8 oz jar of syrup

I am 27 and there were wrinkles just beginning to deepen on my face, or whatever. I started using this, MY seconed day now, and this stuff is literally amazing!!!!!!! The fine lines seem to be softening around my eyes, and forehead for sure. I put it up real close to my eyes and on my lids. I hope they continue to make this stuff. I like it.

I am taking double the dose of these...8 vcaps a day. I researched the ingredients, and the doses of taking twice the recommended amount for NOW special two was close or even under the amounts of vitamins in high quality formulas like Super Nutrition Optipack or SuperNutrition 6 tablets per day vitamins. These are definatly cheaper than SuperNutrition, and has lots of good Superfoods. By taking 8 per day, you get 1700 mg Superfoods, B complex 100, and almost 20,000 mg beta-carotene. 800 mg Vitamin D and 400 mg Vitamin E are good doses for heart/mood health

I used almost 2 4 oz bottles of this on my kids throughout 2 colds. I will have to say I have 1 child with asthma, and 1 child that a lot of times gets the croup. The herbs controlled the colds, I gave no nebulizer treatments at all to my children. I used this with Herbal Respiratory from Mountain Meadow Herbs. I recommend giving this to a child for AT LEAST 10 days at the highest recommended dosage for lbs on the bottle. Also, I think the effectivness for colds is enchanced when you add a respiratory support with it for 10 days. Easy to administer, and my almost 2 year old begs for more!

I have had gestational diabetes three times and I have had pre-diabetes, and PCOS. I read how wonderful this is for your blood sugar, for preventing birth defects, for energy, for pregnancy, for preventing gestational diabetes. IT also helps Type II diabetes. This product was tested in a clinical study taking 2 a day and within 6 MONTHS the blood sugar and A1C levels were near-normal levels. Notice I said 6 months. It works slowly and surely. Dont give up too soon. According to Chris Barr, Taking 3 Tablets of these is the best....One tablet 3 x a day.... He also told me how wonderful this is for pregnancy! At least 3 a day and up to 4 or more per day during pregnancy~
Alternative to Oreganol

This is a good quality product I have researched this product and contacted the company. NOW brand is a trustworthy company. Gathered in eastern Mediterranean region, mainly in Turkey, it contains minimum of 55% carvacrol AND typicly less than 1% thymol! WOW! And look at the price, dirt cheap compared to paying 36-40 dollars for Oreganol. The maximum dosage for an adult would be 4 drops 4x daily of this product for no more than 2 weeks at a time. This would be a very heavy dosage for a serious infection. This dose should only be used no more than 2 weeks at a time, it is too hard on your body. Most colds and flus will probably respond to 2 drops 4x daily for an adult. I contacted the company to find out the average carvacrol, will update later when I find out the information. This is the pure essential oil so only small dosages can be used...Aprox 15.6 mg Carvacrol in every drop. DO NOT OVERDOSE on this.
3 of my children on this!
Posted by Reviewer2669743 on Jul 03, 2011
I have 3 of my children on this. My 5 year old 3/4 tablet, My 7 year old 1 tablet, my 8 year old 1 tablet. My 7 and 8 year olds are both a grade ahead in a challenging curriculem (Abeka). My 5 year old is a little slower in speech and possibly learning, Bacopa helps with speech, learning rates, ect. He is only getting around 3/4 of a tablet. 6 weeks on, 1 week off.

This stuff has saved my husband from several doctor visits, probably also saved him from antibiotics and steroids. He has asthma, and when he gets a cold it almost always goes to his chest. Our Regime is 2 ClearLungs every 4 hours around the clock as much as possible, 2 Goldenseal 3x daily, and 8-12 NOW Propolis daily. It works great, and he is back to normal within 4-5 days. He knows it works and asks me for the "medicine" when he starts feeling it in his chest.
These are the highest potency PreNatal Vitamin in the world*UPDATE*

I started these vitamins over 8 months ago. I take 6 of these prenatal tabs along with fish oil (NOW ultra Omega), around 2 tsp or so of Natural Calm Magnesium, and some Amazing Grass Wheat grass powder. I am pregnant and this is the highest potency broadest spectrum prenatal available!! *UPDATE* MY daughter was born, and she is so alert and her development seems to be very good. People comment on how alert and wide-eyed she is. She is also VERY HAPPY!!!
