A valuable product

Posted on Mar 24, 2011

3 people found the following review helpful

For people like me who have several food intolerances besides histamin overload, it is such a relief to have access to something that actually works and takes away the anxiety off a restaurant visit. It has helped me reduce nightly panic attacks and insomnia due to too much histamine/ too little melatonin. It has reduced my sensitivity to chemical smells, too. Iherb's prices and offers for this product are really good.

Supreme quality

Posted on Sep 07, 2011

3 people found the following review helpful

I suffer from chronic subclinical adrenal insufficiency, a condition not recognised by ordinary endocrinology. My life virtually depends on products such as adrenal cortex. If you don't take any pharmaceutical medicines at all, it is safe to use adrenal cortex which contains steroid hormones. Adrenal cortex extract contains all the adrenal hormones in a naturally balanced ratio, and it is therefore more beneficial than separate steroid hormones, although it takes longer time to recover. At first I used Adrenergize (another company) with dessicated heart, pancreas and liver in addition to adrenal cortex extract, and this product is excellent too, but maybe too strong for my recovery phase. Thorn's product contains just the adrenal cortex (bovine source). It does its job very well: replaces my adrenal hormones without overstimulating my central nerve system. To correct an aldosterone imbalance and DHA insufficiency, I use it with pregnenolone. ACE and pregnenolone balance my adrenals very well. The quality of Thorn's ACE is beautiful - the effect I get is a subtle energy refill rather than a hard boost. I only wish they also produced a 25 mg doses, as splitting the capsules may be tricky. As for the 4 star reviews, I really don't get them. Thorne ACE is truly a 5 star product; I do hope that Thorne will continue to produce it and Iherb will keep on stocking it.

Cautiosly optimistic

Posted on May 26, 2011

I have not tried Astaxantin for long enough to see if it works well, but it did reduce fatigue after a day of hard work. However, it had a diuretic effect on me. I have adrenal fatigue with low aldosterine, so I would advise caution for people who have problems with adrenals or hormones. But it did reduce my blood pressure (which was hormonally caused in the first place). I believe astaxantin has a potential as a supplement, only careful if you are a menopausal woman with fluctuating hormones.

Excellent help for sulfite allergy

Posted on Jun 22, 2011

6 people found the following review helpful

This is yet another life-saver that I discovered by by searching iherb's database for sulfite allergy. For years now I have experienced wheezing (or in worst case closing of bronchial tubes) after just a glass of wine, raisins or anything that cotains sulfites. After discovering my many enzyme deficiencies, I learned that Molybdenum deficiency causes sulfite oxidase deficiency. Now I can happily report that just after a few capsules of Molybdenum Picolinate, my wheezing and unstoppable caugh is gone. I'd recommend caution, as molybdenum is a micronutrient in a megadose capsule. I won't take it regularly but occasionally, for as long as needed.

Using it instead of hormone replacement tablets, that pass the liver. Works well, just dose with care.

Glucose stabilised

Posted on Nov 08, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

I was developing diabetes type II (as it turns out due to undiagnosed genetic factors), so decided to try this product, as I did have vitamin B1 deficiency. I had metabolic (mitochondrial) malfunction, so even if usually sceptical of the synthetic vitamins, I decided to test the claim that benfotiamine can pass the phosholipid barrier and enter the cells - where the effects of diabetes are felt. In just two weeks (presumably because it only was mildly elevated) my glucose stabilised, and the dreadful tiredness abated! I still take it occasionally, for as long as I need it.

I tried this product and compared it to an enteric capsule. It clearly works. Pleasant taste; gives instant energy boost.

Noticable effect from a tiny dose

Posted on May 02, 2014

2 people found the following review helpful

51 and trying to deal with micro-vascular dysfunction and improve circulation. Because of salicylate sensitivity K-2 seems a good alternative. I take K-2 with vitamin D3 and magnesium malate, and it lifts my physical energy. I've been able to swim yesterday in a fairly cold sea water (19*C), without turning blue and breathless as I expected I would. It isn't K-2 alone that improved my circulation (GAGs such as chondroitin and calcium d-glucarate are also helpful for veins and arteries), but K-2 has a certain noticeable effect within minutes of ingestion. Nice small dose, as vitamin K is dangerous in overdose.

Strongly scented!

Are you serious? The product is strongly scented. It must not be advertised as unscented, because perfume hyper-reactivity is a serious illness, not a joke.

Previously five stars now useless

I've bought several bottles given that the quality was good. However the formula has been changed to the detriment of the product. Very disappointing, hence one star.

Impressive quality

Posted on Mar 22, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

I am one of those unlucky people who's had many problems at once. Adrenal fatigue, food intolerance, kidney trouble etc. I managed to revive myself, condition by condition. Before the collaps, I used to take good probiotics (British brand called Biocare) because my digestion was very weak. But after regenerating the adrenal glands (Adrenergize; Cortex; Adrenal - products found at Iherb) my immune system was strengthened to the point where probiotics overstimulated my spleen, so I started to get autoimmune problems. So to calm down the system, I got off the probiotics, and fixed the spleen with the red root extract. Six months without the probiotics, I developed an irritable and inflamed bowel. That's why I wanted to test another brand of probiotic, to help the bowels, but not start another autoimmune attack. One week down the road, I am happy to have chosen Jarro-Dophilus. Not only has it normalised the digestion, it has given me energy, and no side effects so far. I will join the other happy customers in praising the packaging and the quality. Impressive!

Surprisingly good!

Posted on Dec 23, 2011

1 person found the following review helpful

Just tried out this product during a holiday on Canary Islands, Spain, with strong winter sun burning my face. It worked very well, as long as reapplied after swimming. It does not clog pores, lovely texture and smell. Surprisingly good, can recommend.
