Few alternative choices to this product

Posted on Aug 20, 2008

8 people found the following review helpful

I would prefer to see a product containing only bulk resveratrol powder in a jar, without excipient ingredients. Instructions should include taking this product with small amount of alcohol or glycerin, as resveratrol is not absorbable in the GI tract without concommitant intake of either.

I trust its efficacy and purity

Just as with creatine, much of the world's MSM supply is produced in unscrupulous Chinese factories, where purity is unregulated. This product's OptiMSM brand is the only way of being sure that the MSM is produced in the USA.

Ever try looking for liquid borage oil? This is a very uncommon product. Good clarity, no odor. A bit pricey though :-(

Good alternative to tablets, which contain stearate

Posted on Jul 11, 2013

Its amino acid chelation ensures good absorbability. Non-tablet form means no unhealthful stearate.

High quality, but high price; questionable benefits

Posted on Jul 11, 2013

I exercise multiple days per week at high intensity. I also eat healthfully. I get compliments on my apparent fitness. However, I have persistently high LDL cholesterol. Taking one of these daily since 2004 has not had any affect on reducing my LDL level to within normal limits.

Contains sugar, and no assay

Posted on Aug 20, 2008

3 people found the following review helpful

I'm trying to cut my sugar consumption without resorting to synthetic sweetener chemicals. So I use powdered inulin (FOS) to cut powdered stevia in order to make a healthier alternative sweetener. So the presence of fructose in this product is highly undesirable. Also keep in mind that it is a highly processed product made in a manufacturing plant. Rating would be higher if label contained assay to reveal its purity.

Inexpensive ingredient for improving flavor and nutrition of foods / beverages

Posted on Jul 11, 2013

1 person found the following review helpful

It has a neutralizing effect on coffee's chlorogenic acid. So I use approx 1/32 tsp per 10 fl oz serving of black coffee in order to remove some of the acidic sharpness. It can also help to complex the phytic acid (an anti-nutrient) present in whole grain hot cereals, such as oatmeal. That helps to prevent the grains' minerals from being rendered unabsorbable.

Very light flavor, resists smoking when pan searing

Posted on Jul 11, 2013

1 person found the following review helpful

This product is best for stir frying, blackening, and pan searing; when stove heat is highest. Other oils may smoke under such conditions, indicating the unhealthful oxidation of their unsaturated fats. Secondarily, its very light flavor is also useful for baking recipes that call for a relatively tiny qty of oil.

Not really the same product as I had been ordering for several years previous

Posted on Jul 11, 2013

1 person found the following review helpful

I was happily ordering this product from iHerb since about early 2008. In the past it had a neutral flavor; almost tasteless, which is what should be expected of whey isolate. Sometime around 2010 or 2012 its price suddenly doubled. I hadn't ordered it for about 18 months before my most recent order... My most recent order of this product was in June 2013. It has an expiration date of Mar 2015. Only several days ago did I open its large canister and try it as-is. It has such a foul chemical taste that if I wasn't so busy and shipping costs weren't so high, I would've sent it back to iHerb already. Even after flavoring one serving with 1 tsp McCormick real vanilla extract plus 1/16 tsp stevia extract powder that aweful chemical taste could not be masked! I don't know what the manufacturer did to this $84.14 product, but it can't possibly be healthful. I will call iHerb and complain about it. I would NEVER have continued re-ordering it for so many years if it had always tasted so bad as it currently does!

Delighted with it

Posted on Jul 11, 2013

Gets my filthy hands squeaky clean! May seem expensive, but it only takes a single squirt from a bathroom pump dispenser to quickly clean the dirtiest hands. And filling an 8 oz dispenser bottle lasts the two of us a few months. So it really is quite inexpensive to use, despite its seemingly high price. I do a lot of gardening and landscaping around the home, which includes preparing and using compost, hand-weeding, screening soil, etc. I also do various dirty jobs, including the cleaning of sink traps and the maintenance of our lawn mower and our motor vehicles. It smells nice and yet does a FABULOUS job cleaning the most tenacious grime from my hands. When used in combination with a 3-4" hand brush it develops a lather far more voluminous than an equal qty of any of those boutiquey liquid "soaps" that we've (mistakenly, ignorantly) purchased in the past. Those other products typically contain VERY LONG lists of chemical ingredients having multi-syllable names that are difficult to pronounce. Tip: To prevent clogging of your dispenser's pump nozzle, mix in a small amount of additional vegetable glycerin. That other product is item NOW-07700. Don't worry, the lathering won't be diminished.

Make your own herbal infusions with it

Posted on Jul 11, 2013

Try combining it with either garlic powder or turmeric powder. Then warm it over the stove for 5-15 mins, being careful not to exceed 180 deg F. Use a mini dial stem thermometer, like the ones sold in supermarkets as meat / dough thermometers. It's also useful for mixing with liquid castile soaps, in order to prevent clogging of dispenser pump nozzles.
