For anyone wanting Valerian only for their insomnia issues, this is the best choice. Solgar is also the best brand on the market. Civilizations have known about valerian since Hippocrates. I use it for mild insomnia, migraines, asthma, & pain relief. Try it with hops, lemon balm, or other herbs that also cause drowsiness. I've heard that some people who are trying to withdraw from the use of “sleeping pills” use valerian to help them sleep after they have tapered the dose of the sleeping pill. Some women use valerian for menstrual cramps and symptoms associated with menopause, including hot flashes and anxiety. Also, valerian is added to bath water to help with restlessness and sleep disorders.
Mandatory for Women's Health
I started using this product with dong quai & evening primrose oil (EPO). I have no menopausal problems. Solgar is the best brand for quality. I suggest women do the research before using this product. Like dong quai & EPO, it's an herbal version of the Pill. Historically, black cohosh was a home remedy used for rheumatism and fever, as a diuretic, and to bring on menstruation. It was extremely popular among a group of alternative practitioners who prescribed it for rheumatism, lung conditions, neurological conditions, and conditions that affected women's reproductive organs (including menstrual problems, inflammation of the uterus or ovaries, infertility, threatened miscarriage, and relief of labor pains
A Nice Surprise
We use feverfew as a pain reliever enhancement. I was skeptical of the white willow, but I researched it. The combination seem to work well together for me. I'd rather take this & arnica tablets instead of ibuprofen.
Perfect Strawberry Protein Powder

This is a genuine "protein" drink that is protein with a little carbohydrates. Most of the drinks are the opposite with a little protein. I can always add more carbs with wheat germ or whatever. I can also add antioxidant fruits & vegetables. This one has a nice flavor like biting into a freeze-dried strawberry. Many protein powders have too much bad sugars like fructose. This one has stevia. Of all the "protein" powders I've tried, this brand is the best. I use it in a smoothie that includes green tea, chocolate syrup, & some local honey. It blends very well. I highly recommend this product.
My blood tests showed that I was significantly low in vitamin D so my doctor put me on a prescription for 50,000 IU. This is a good daily product of cholecalciferol. Vitamin D is used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels, including high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It is also used for diabetes, obesity, muscle weakness, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, bronchitis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and tooth and gum disease.

I've used other products that provide a little improvement. When I use this one, it's a lot easier getting up in the morning. My knees are not so stiff. As always, this brand does not disappoint.
Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) is almost a mandatory daily supplement for women. As with everything, it works for some women & not for others. I suggest trying it for 3 mos. at least. Either way, it's good for reducing for helping to lower cholesterol. I'm 54. I started taking it daily to reduce my high cholesterol. It's worked well with the Krill Oil. It's also a great benefit for pre-menopausal & menopausal symptoms. I also take dong quai. It's been better than the pill. I now have no menopausal problems.
Valerian & GABA
The combination of ingredients work well together for me. I also take them with tryptophan. Even if I don't sleep I'm relaxed which is just as important. I recommend doing the research on the ingredients & watch the interaction with anti-depressants.
Ancient Exotic Fragrance with Medicinal Properties
I'm trying this for my neuropathy, joint pain, & arthritis. I use it with Biofreeze at night. I have noticed that I sleep a little better. Since ancient times, the boswellic acids found in frankincense have been used to reduce joint pain and arthritis symptoms once applied to the joints in oil form. Topically, myrrh has also been used to treat muscular pains, arthritis, ulcers, sores, wounds, weak gums, loose teeth, bacterial and fungal skin infections and acne
Rx for Cholesterol
Posted by Reviewer2864112 on Sep 15, 2012
I wanted to try this product because my cholesterol is higher than it should, & I don't want another prescription. Amazing Meal contains greens I usually don't find in something with chocolate. Also, maca is the best type of chocolate on Earth. The digestive enzymes are perfect for anyone suffering from IBS like I do. No stomach problems! This is also the first product I've seen using Stevia so it's perfect for someone watching their glucose levels. I mix the product with tea. It's great with green, black current, acacia, etc. Some might have a problem with the grittiness. As good as it tastes, it's really not an issue. I highly recommend it!!

This is 100 percent Acacia Senagal. It's a lot more effective than the NOW brand. It's quite noticeable in texture also. I've started using this in my cooking. It doesn't act as a thickening agent either. It's a good way to lower the amount of cholesterol. Even a little adds up over time.

My bone density is low, & common calcium supplements aren't very effective. The formula is calcium, soy, & other ingredients that all work together to maximize absorption. Also, my daughter now takes the capsules. She had a tooth that was "stealing" calcium from the bone. The oral surgeon that she was already taking a calcium supplement that included soy. Women require both anyway. This product is worth a 3 - 6 mos. trial based on individual needs as the doctor recommends.
