Last time I bought a bottle of these, the softgel's contents had terrible, rancid smell. To make matters worse, I discovered that fact, when I was already through half the container, putting in my body this unworthy product. According to the expiration date listed on the bottle, it still had several months of good use, but I guess the raw product used for this batch was not on the necessary level. After some time I "bumped" into this item once again, this time in iHerb's Super Specials section. It was a good deal and I've read quite a few articles praising the krill oil, stating how superior it is to the fish oil and so on. So I pulled the trigger and bought the stuff again. This time, when it arrived, the first thing I did was to chew one softgel to see if this time it was all good. Well, fortunately the nasty smell was replaced with the regular "fishy" smell. It is not a pleasant smell, but at least I can tell it was fresh. A month later and the bottle was finitó. Frankly, I didn't feel any better compared to when I was on regular fish oil. Maybe it would take longer time to notice any difference. Maybe it contains more antioxidants per gram. Maybe.Maybe.Maybe. To see for myself it will cost me time and money with uncertain results. That's why I am ditching the krill oil for good and return to regular fish oil (the one offered by Natural Factors is pretty concentrated and the New Chapter Salmon oil is of exceptional quality) and sometimes plant based omega formulas (flax oil, borage, evening primrose) for a change.
Probably the best non milk protein formula

One of the best vegetable source proteins. I do not think that there is any better vegetable protein formula out there. The price could be a little bit down but hey, it is a product with extreme quality. The taste is a little bit bland but that's the reason i like it so much.
Great support for the eyes... and the whole body.
I use computer screens all the time and I really need some internal support for my eyes. Sure, I use artificial tear, but it's not enough, if I want to preserve the my vision from all this staring into LCD screens. For me a good combination is: This Product + sometimes Lutein + artificial tear & everyday eye exercises. Unfortunately sometimes I skip the lasp one, but the results so far are pretty good. Years of staring into computer screens and I don't wear glasses!
Tasty way to take important vitamin, but I wish it contained no corn syrup & ane sugar.
This D vitamin is refreshing optio among the dull-to-take regular pills and the price is very affordable as well, buti wish it would contant no corn syrup and cane sugar. They are not the healthiest sweeteners to say the least and in my optinion don't have place in such supplement. Stevia is much better alternative to sweeten it. It Is a herb, ZERO Glycemic index AND ZERO calories! The perfect sweetener for me. I use it all the time.

Was pretty good but still not that sweet and nice like from what i expected from papaya but very healthy indeed
Meiocre in my opinion...
Shook it and sprayed several times into the air(it really does "fill up" a room), but didn't like the smell at all... Sure, you can recognize the Jasmine, but it's not that awesome natural smell, that I am looking for. It's hard to describe it, but you can tell the "unnaturalness", if I can say it this way. This or maybe I was with higher expectations, that usual after using Heritage Product's Rose Petals Rose Water. You can spray this rose water product in your eyes (and it is actually beneficial). This one - I would never spray it on body, let alone face/eyes.
Great price on big dosage, high-quality cranberry!
The dosage is enough and the contents of the capsule are fresh and even tasty (I open the capsule and eat its contents). Most importantly, it helped my mother cystitis and bladder infection she had in the past. I am very happy with this product! Affordable & effective. Will buy more of it!
Fresh, natural and beneficial.
Besides the Doctor's best brand of cordyceps, I also use this one and it gives me similar results. The taste in the capsule is different, but in no way i can say, that it is worse. Both are of very high guality and beneficial to the health. It really does make a difference, at least when I use it.
Fresh product with great properties (and smell) !

When I was ordering this product I didn't expect it to be such an awesome product. I don't use garlic powder that often (I prefer the fresh one), but I decided to give this product a try partly because I have tried the paprika powder from the same brand and was left with great impression and partly because I need powder in some new dishes I am currently trying. I have to say, that this one is definitely worth it. It is not bland and the garlic smell and taste is there (in a good way)! There are many dishes, that benefit from putting garlic in it (I like mainly the Mediterranean) and this product won't be a waste of money or a "meal-spoiler". It's more expensive, than the other brands offered here, in iHerb, but I think it's worth it to try and then decide whether or not you want to continue purchasing it. Overall: here are my pros and cons: + Glass bottle + High Quality + Not Chinese garlic (unlike several other brands) + Taste isn't washed out + Reputable brand - Somewhat small package - A little bit pricier.
High quality, excellent taste, good price.

This sauce has very nice taste and it really (for me) isn't too sweet and the fact, that grape juice is used to sweeten it is very good fact to hear, although stevia might have been even better choice. But still - the Glycemic Index is low enough and I like to consume it with yogurt/cereal/ice cream topping etc.
Didnt experience the expected results

This product worked when i started to take it (experienced gas, bloating) but still it did not work in the way i would like to be( laxative effect). The potency is not one of the highest too considering that there are products with 30-50 billion per capsule(this having only one).
Unbelievable price on legendary product!
Bilberry is definitely one of my favorite foods and I try to ear it whenever possible, but when the natural form isn't available, I like to supplement with product like this one. And 21st Century's (and because of iHerb) price is just incredibly affordable and around half the price of similar products. I just purchased it and I can't tell muh about its properties, but when I do have more insights about it, I will update this review! Thaks iHerb for offering these great products on amazng prices!
