superior liver detox

Posted on Oct 01, 2009

20 people found the following review helpful

This is an unusual liver supplement in that it is targeted very specifically for Phase 2 detoxification, which is where I (and most people) need support. I was scheduled for gallbladder surgery, and having all kinds of digestive distress, but after a month of taking 4 caplets of this a day (they're kind of big and hard, but not too bad) and some other helpful things (such as continuing w/ acupuncture and Chinese herbs), I feel much better and have cancelled surgery. Heal your liver, heal the body!

I can't really tell how/if these are working, even though I know I need lots of extra liver support. I don't care for the larger capsules. I think the same company makes another liver formula with Bupleurum in it that has much smaller capsules, and also Dong Quai, whose female-supportive effects I like. So I think I'll try to find that again...

excellent antioxidant

How do I know this stuff is working? Vanity. My complexion and general appearance are noticeably better and more people exclaim how young and great I look. I'm sure it's working on other levels, but I love the inner glow this free-radical fighter gives me! I take two a day, one with breakfast and one after dinner.

Terrible, thick, icky mess!

Posted on May 22, 2014

4 people found the following review helpful

I wish I'd ignored the overwhelming positive reviews for this product, and I'm writing because my experience was so unusually bad. So much for my Raw Meal - make that a Raw Deal. Suffice to say that even with a large blender bottle and plenty of liquid (almond milk and water), the resulting "shake" is an unctuous, too-thick, gloppy gray mess that I had to try to choke down. Even if the taste were good (this is far from a non-dairy vanilla "milkshake" experience), the consistency would still be its biggest problem. The expression "Gag me with a spoon!" kept popping into my mind as I attempted my last swallow. A whole canister wasted - I'm going to try to make snack bars or protein balls out of the remaining powder. I can't imagine why other people like this product, other than the nutritive value. It is simply an awful meal replacement shake if you're looking for pleasant taste and consistency. By the way, I haven't reviewed anything on iHerb in quite a while, since I've been unimpressed with some people's attempts to get us to click on their links, etc. This reviewing feature on the site should be for honest feedback only, where we help each other out as consumers. Thanks to those of you who respect this.

great liver support and cognition booster

Posted on Apr 15, 2009

8 people found the following review helpful

I'm taking ALA (2 a day)to support my liver and act as a general antioxidant, as well as to help my mind work better (I'm 35, with chronic fatigue and regular "brain fog"). I've definitely noticed better cognition and a sense of improved well-being after only a couple weeks of taking it. Also, the potency, price, and Vcaps from Now Foods just can't be beat!

good for thyroid

my doctor told me that this helps with the conversion of T4 to T3. I take one a day in my chronic fatigue protocol and will continue to take it because of other adaptogenic benefits.

excellent

I bought these for my mother, who has osteoporosis and refuses to take big "horse pills." They dissolve easily in the mouth with a pleasant orange flavor. The combination of Vitamin D with K makes alot of sense for bone health, immune response, and general well-being.

Seriously, have you tried these? Don't order too many please, because we'd like a regular supply! It's beautiful organic dark chocolate flecked with buttery toffee bits and toasted coconut. The flavor combo and crunch make for a perfect chocolate experience.

my new fave for liver support

Posted on Dec 04, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

I used to buy a different product for liver support, but I feel that capsules make for better absorption (always buy products with veggie caps, do not accept nasty gelatin capsules from any company!). This product has a good spectrum of fine liver support herbs and nutraceuticals, the two key ingredients being more absorbable Silymarin (the queen of liver herbs; actually helps regenerate liver cells) and Picrorizha Kurroa, the "hangover" herb that doesn't need to be just for alcohol detox; even those of us who don't drink much can benefit from its highly protective, liver-metabolism-aiding properties. I take two a day, one in morning and one at night, and when I support my liver this way, I have less GI distress and less sluggishness in general.

smell like a man

Posted on Jan 24, 2010

3 people found the following review helpful

This scent is very reminiscent of light men's cologne; I wouldn't recommend it for a woman! For something clean and not flowery, but feminine, go with the green tea scent. This is my favorite brand of deodorant, but I wish it were still stronger on sweating and the stinkies. Otherwise, great feel, great ingredients, great scents (though not bamboo for me), and I love the immune-boosting effect.

best meal of my day!!

Though I purchase just about every other supplement from the awesome iHerb, I do not buy this here, because it's such an expensive product, and any discount helps. So, I order it from Vitacost when I can get their free shipping option. But know that this, along with the pomegranate mango flavor, is the FINEST protein shake/ meal replacement product I have ever used, and I've tried many. They are delicious when blended with organic rice or almond milk and ice (the chocolate benefits from an extra teaspoon of cocoa powder, raw if possible). As a vegetarian, I feel like I'm getting the best protein known to humankind with this stuff, and my stomach never gets upset, as it has with other protein shakes. I just feel nicely energized and satisfied after ingesting a completely nutritious and delicious- yet highly unprocessed- raw food. Perhaps our beloved iHerb will consider offering it for at least 3 dollars less, like some of its competitors? Thanks.
