For depression, arthritis AND Liver!
Posted by ThinkingforMyself on Jul 18, 2011
I took this for depression a while ago and it seemed to make a difference. Imagine my surprise when the vet said it would help my dog's liver failure! So now she's taking it, along with medication and milk thistle and a special diet, and I'll post the results in a month or two. So far now 3 vets have told me that SAMe is critical for my dog's liver failure problem (hepatitis), along with milk thistle and vitamin E. (I also have her on schizandra, sarsparilla, licorice, artichoke and a vitamin B supplement, recommended by a vet), as well as a special liver diet (white fish and organic brown rice and veggies 2x per day, and organic chicken liver with rice 1x per day). My dog seems to be doing better, though I don't think we're out of the woods yet. I've also started taking the SAMe again, and have noticed an instant uplift in mood. (I take St. John's wort, too, and I don't notice any changes like that.) July 18, 2011: My 11 year old Malamute was diagnosed with liver failure in September. I gave her SAMe (switched brands to Source Naturals SAMe a couple of months ago because of ingredients), plus other supplements (see above) and later on dandelion root, and two days ago blood tests came back that her liver values are perfectly normal. I am so pleased. BTW, I learned that dogs should not have licorice or too much vitamin E, which is similar to selenium, so just be careful.
Very Nice Cleanser
This is one of the nicest cleansers I've ever used. Very gentle, but still cleanses oily skin, unlike Cetaphil, for instance.
Good Coconut Oil
I usually buy Nutiva but bought this to try it. It's a very nice coconut oil for cooking, supplementation, and for the skin.
A LOT of capsules!
This bag is good value if you're going to encapsulate your own herbs.
Seems to suppress appetite
Posted by ThinkingforMyself on Jul 31, 2011
I've only been taking this for a few days now, but yesterday I noticed that I wasn't very hungry. I didn't even know that this is an appetite suppressant, but hopefully it will last. My only problem is that I'm eating my way through a divorce and so I eat when I'm not hungry sometimes. I will repost if I notice any other results.
Work very well

These work just as well as the Organika brand I've taken for years. I'm very impressed.

I am very impressed with this supplement, I will definitely keep taking it.
My Review is Based on Taste Only So Far
Posted by ThinkingforMyself on Jan 14, 2014
I haven't had this long enough to say if it helps in detoxing or in feeling better, but I like the taste. It is quite mild, and I normally detest herbal teas. I couldn't wait for this to arrive (it takes several weeks to get to Canada), so bought Yogi Tea Lemon and Ginger Detox from a local store, and while I like the taste of that one better, this one has more ingredients in it, so I think this one will probably be more helpful medicinally.

This works much better than the crystals themselves, and is easier to use.
Two nights in, I and my dog are sleeping much better
Posted by ThinkingforMyself on Apr 18, 2012
I've only been taking half a scoop for two nights, but last night I noticed I fell asleep much more easily, even after I woke up several times. Usually I lie awake for hours. I'm giving it to my dog and she is usually up several times a night and she slept soundly right through. This is going to be a keeper.
My son really likes this soap

It seems to work well and is a nice, mild, non-drying soap.
I love this stuff

I use cacao powder in smoothies and I love it because I can eat chocolate without feeling guilty. I put a little frozen banana, some water (or I make almond milk first), and a raw egg in with some raw cacao and it's very good.
