The two main reasons I decided to take enzyme supplement are: - Bloating - To improve digestion I went for this one, because well, it's plant based and appreciate that fact, especially after I learned what are the sources of other animal based enzymes. Yuck! Another good fact is, that the formula is quite "generous" and well balanced, at least on paper. When I started my "trial" I rarely exceeded 1 capsule per day, several days I took 2/day. My main reasoning behind this decision is because the last thing I want is to put to sleep my natural enzyme production. I am not sure, if higher dosages of those can cause such "reaction", but I don't want to take any chances. My hopes were to kick start the natural process, not to rely on the pills to replace the process. Now, that I am finishing the bottle (it took a pretty long time for that), I can conclude the following: - I didn't experience reduced bloating after a meal. I suspect my problem is due to gas and to experience relief from it I would probably need the animal-based pancreatic enzyme. - Any noticeable improvement in the digestion wasn't "observed" either. The good news is, that if it didn't do me any good, at least it wasn't harmful either. Needless to say, I won't be buying this item again, but don't feel discouraged to try it out yourself, you may have different results.
Snake oil... Didn't work for me at all.

This whole oxygen drops thingy poped up on my radar only because I learned from several places, that a doctor naturopath was prescribing some similar product and "marketed" in with quite a praise . It is even more expensive to get it through him and I looked it up here, on iHerb to see, if they have such thing in their inventory.  It turned out, iHerb offers several such products (most of which more expensive, that this one). I ordered 2 of those and started waiting for them to arrive. The first couple of days using it I didn't experience any benefits or side effects.  Time passed and I finished the  first bottle. Again, no ANY benefits experienced WHATSOEVER.  O.K. , I started the second one and it wasn't  long before I finished it as well. Surprise, surprise - again none positive side effects at all.  I started to search around around the web for opinion and articles about this stuff. It turned out, that this and all the similar "oxygen" supplements are pretty much hoax. It doesn't supply the body with oxygen (the daily dosage you are going to use has oxygen content MUCH smaller, than ONE breath!) and doesn't help your body in any way. If you strongly believe, that it's going to be beneficial for you, it might be placebo AT BEST.  Seriously, for the money of THESE laughable oxygen drops you can get other supplement, that might have much more noticeable and positive effects on your body. Omega 3, medicinal mushrooms, propolis, colostrum, Vitamin C and much more... There are product from each of these categories, here on iHerb, that fall into this price range.  Friendly advice: Do yourself a favor and choose something else :)
Decent Product, But... Unclear Results
I am interested in the probiotic products and their function in the human body. On paper, their role and potential benefits appears are numerous, but in general, they are the type of supplement, from which I rarely notice (positive) difference. I've tried LOADS of probiotic products with the hope to find one, with which I can say, that I SEE the positive impact on my health.  Several times I received samples from iHerb with this product, but a week or so taking a medium strength probiotic is way too short of a time to see any difference, so I decided to give it a shot and buy the whole thing.  I have to not, that I respect Jarrow Formulas, I use some of their other products and was left with good impression about them. Unfortunately I didn't see any results from this one after finishing one container and several blisters of testers. Maybe the dosage was not enough, maybe I was not taking it long enough, maybe the probiotic strains are not the right kind for me or maybe even it DID good for me, but I just didn't feel it.  Whatever it is, I don't plan on purchasing this particular probiotic anymore. P.S. if you live in the U.S. I strongly recommend you to try out the probiotics, that need to be refrigerated. They are shipped by iHerb in ice packs and the reason I recommend them is, that they have more active cultures, than most of their shelf-stable equivalent and you could and you could expect more fast and noticeable results.  I can't try them, because I am located far from the U.S.
Tremendous Omega-3 + D product!
Posted by Rosiee on May 12, 2012
After trying out liquid (flavored, unflavored) and pill forms from various brands and finding some nice and other - not so nice products I can say, that I HAVE NOT found any TASTIER and more JOYFUL way to take Omega-3. Seriously, you won't even notice ANY fish oil flavor. It's just a beta-carotene colored, orange paste, which melts in your mouth and leave fantastic taste. PLEASURE to use! Also, great plus, that it contains Vitamin D3, which is very helpful (immune system, women's health, bone health etc.) and it doesn't contain any "bad stuff" to achieve this tremendous taste! Buy with confidence! If you don't like this omega 3's taste, I don't know which you will :) P.S. Also, considering you take one-a-day, this package contains supply for 3 months, which makes this product excellent value as well! Thanks iHerb for providing these awesome prices!
Extremely helpful product!
Posted by Rosiee on Apr 04, 2012
I have used liquid extracts, capsules from other brands , haven't yet tried the juice, but DEFINITELY this one packs unmatched value for you your money and great quality and results! It has positive impact on my health not only when I have flu/virus symptoms, but also as natural preventative as well. Again, great price, quantity, quality and potency. Doctor's Best is one of my favorite brands for providing great price/quality products like this one. I also thank iHerb for giving us the opportunity to buy it at halo the MSRP!
Excellent ingredients & vision support!
I spend a lot of time in front of computer screens and despite they're flat screen and operate at optimal frequency, they take their toll, when used in excess. I've been using mainly bilberry and blueberry (fresh and in supplemental form, when it's out of season) to aid my vision overcome the challenges of modern life and they helped and continue helping me to retain my visual acuity. This formula though, is very comprehensive and helpful as well. I purchased 2-3 bottles of those, when this was offered by iHerb at a bargain price. Armed with so many servings, I could evaluate the product better and see how it affects me. After my little trial I was satisfied with the results, there was some noticeable improvement in my visual acuity on top of the already satisfying vision I started with. I must note, that I didn't go to ophthalmologist to see the status of my eyes before and after my experiment with this product, I relied on my own judgement, little tests and change in my everyday tasks. Another benefit noticed after my product trial apart from the improvement i during the day was a slight improvement in my night vision as well. It's some pretty potent stuff and I really like how the people from Nutrex made this product's formula and its effect. The only thing I would like to see changed is the price, but since I suppose they used very high quality ingredients, it would be next to impossible to bring the price down. And that is the reason I can't afford to use it more frequently.
Peanut butter killer!
I don't have a severe peanut allergy, but when I eat peanuts/peanut butter , it is usual for me to develop a rash somewhere on my body. Peanuts are not so easy on the liver, and generally are some of the least healthy "nuts" (they are from the "Beans" family). Of course this review shouldn't be focused on peanut butter, but I use it to make my point. Yes, peanut butter is tasty, and there is nothing wrong with eating is as long as you don't have a peanut allergy, BUT I find Sunflower butter and Tahini (Sesame "butter") to be EXCELLENT, much more nutritious and healthy alternatives to it. This one is great - no salt or any unnecessary additives, I'm free to recognize the natural flavor. I personally find it delicious. As ingredient to my homemade protein bars or just straight out of the container, it makes for a great snack.
Hit or Miss.
I love Goji. If I could, I would eat its fresh "version" every day, but where I live, that's not possible right now. That's the reason I've been buying this over six times now. They are great with yogurt, cereal etc. , but at least to me, they are even better eaten by themselves. Unfortunately 2 times I purchased those, there was something wrong with their taste and texture. It is hard to describe, but they were harder and unpleasant to eat - after I ate a handful, I could feel my stomach's acidity level increase. Quite annoying feeling. The rest of my Goji orders were alright, but these two "problematic" ones were worthless to me and I had to throw them away. The strange thing is, that according to the expiration date listed on the package, those two still had a lot of months to go. Obviously the bad taste is due to reasons other than expiry. If you wonder why I didn't contact iHerb to return them - the shipping price would've been too much for me to consider it worthwhile. With that said, this really is a wonderful product, much better, than any I've tested so far, but only if you receive the ones you should a 100% of the time - fresh and soft ones!
Unorthodox approach to chocolate formulation, but (very) good result.
Normally, I am not the type of person, that likes to mix sweet with salty/spicy/sour ingredients, but this time I decided to give it a try since it is such a popular and well reviewed product. I can say, that I am glad I did! I am not a chocolate snob and don't eat chocolate that often, but when I do I like to take my time and enjoy it. With this one, because it has a little salty beside the sweet flavor, it feels like a little "explosion" in your mouth. Different regions of the tongue register the different flavor and it's VERY nice feeling. You have to experience it to really "explore" it truly.  I rarely eat more, that 1-2 little blocks, but this chocolate makes it enjoyable (and even healthy, when consumed in moderation) experience!
My Skin is a Big Fan of this!
The texture and the effect is has on my skin is incredible! While I apply it, it feels so smooth and pleasant and after several minutes it is all absorbed by the skin, leaving you not greasy, but still very, very smooth. You need a small quantity to feel the difference, the ingredients seems to be really well selected and the price so much more affordable, that many of the other beauty products (and especially creams and serums) even here on iHerb. I don't like to spend lots of money on such products, mainly because I like to spend it on foods and supplement, that will "work" from the inside and enhance make my external look (e.g. Skin) . But still, the skin needs *SOME* care after all, and this skin oil seems to be one of the best for the "Job" :) This one, alongside with NOW's Comforting Massage oil sits on my bathroom cabinet and serves its purpose well!
Best form of propolis available
Posted by Rosiee on Sep 26, 2010
The best form of propolis available! Have tried now's concentrate, liquid tincture etc. but this one is the best! Mixed with some honey and it is almost like cocoa! I'm on the second bottle already and will definately buy again
Great selection of oils for silky smooth skin!
Posted by Rosiee on Jul 11, 2012
We regularly practice massage therapy and I am very happy that we discovered this product. It not only smells great, but I believe it's very beneficial for the skin as well. You can actually tell the difference after the massage is over and the oil is absorbed into the skin. Silky smooth! Very good price and it also saves me the hassle to buy every oil on its own and mix them while making massage. The only "con" I can think of is, that some people may prefer for it to come in glass bottle, but due to weight I like the plastic one (as this one here) better.
