Great in cooking

I have been using this powder for quite some time for both of my children who needs these minerals but eithr can't take pills or get really sick of them. I mix this in with muffins or brownies. It changes the colour of the muffins to a light grey/green! but the flavour isn't changed noticeably and my kids eat them with no problem. Since minerals aren't affected by heat, we don't lose any benefit by using the powder this way.
Easy to use, non-greasy and no smell

The container measures the dose which I like. Though I often use .5-.75 of a full dose so end up having to judge it anyway! The consistency is good, not greasy like Life Flo Health brand I tried. A full dose rubs in very easily. There is very little smell, hardly noticeable, which also compares favorably with other brands.
Good brand of krill oil

This brand seems good value, and krill oil seems to have advantages over fish oil (phospholipid content in particular as well as the sustainability of the process). However I'm not yet convinced that EPA/DHA are better to take than their parent oil, Alpha-linolenic-acid, which is an essential fatty acid (found, for example in Flax oil) and from which the body can make EPA and DHA. The jury is out on this one.

This should last me a long time. I love this stuff when I get a cold sore to balance up the L-lysine : L-arginine ratios and get rid of the cold sore ASAP. Works for me!
Nice for cooking

This is a good coconut oil for cooking foods where you don't want a coconut flavour. Of course, low flavour means less of the factors that make coconut oil a great food. it's still a good cooking fat though, as it doesn't oxidise, even at high temperatures or after long storage time.

These are too large for my son to take. We liked the capsules in this brand, but they don't seem to be available any more. Tablets are OK for me.

We use this for my son who is an undermethylator--can be assessed by looked at histamine levels in the blood. A higher dose would usually be recommended for his size (9 years old, average weight), but we found it was too much. And since SAMe is usually enterically-coated so it gets to the right part of the gut, cutting a larger tablet was not a good idea. This size is perfect for us.

We use quite a few different forms of melatonin in our household. We use this one for our nine-year old who has food intolerances and trouble getting to sleep. This one is good because it has no additives that are likely to cause problems for him. It is also easy to hide by opening the capsule and mixing it with his desert around an hour before we want him to fall asleep. He doesn't know he's taking it, so no psychological addiction. One third of a capsule is enough, so these last us a long time.

My son has used No-Fenol for about 8 years now to help with salicylate intolerance. He takes a capsule or chewable with each meal or snack containing sals. Without the No-Fenol, he gets black circles around his eyes and he clearly feels bad--after doing a food elimination (following "Fed Up") and challenging with sals, he said he felt as though a heavy grey weight had settled on him. Sals make him aggressive and much less compliant, and he doesn't sleep as well. With No-Fenol he seems to be able to eat as much salicylate as he wants to. As he's gotten older (now 14) his threshold or tolerance has also increased. He sometimes forgets to take the NF, and as long as it's just once or twice in a day (he's a huge fruit grazer) he's OK. He misses more than that and we start to see the dark rings around his eyes and see him get more grumpy. One star off for the current taste of these chewables (with stevia and isomaltose). He's not keen on it and prefers to swallow them with water. The previous formulation tasted much better--more fruity, and no stevia aftertaste. Still, a really great product.

I like the liquid for my daughter who can't yet take tablets. But, I was disappointed to see how weak this zinc is compared to what I buy from my practitioner in the same brand. This size/concentration works out much more expensive and the bottle will only last a couple of weeks, for trying to get zinc levels up. And since it can take month to get zinc levels up to a reasonable level, this doesn't seem a good way to go.

This zinc has got my levels back up to optimal within a fairly short time. The tablets are fairly small and easy to take.

We use this as leave-in conditioner. If you use a lot, it does leave the hair looking a bit lank. Good for when there are just a few knots. Smells like orange sherbet.
