Beware if you have IBS

Posted by Umbridge on Nov 04, 2012

I bought these because I had been told that FOS can help IBS. However, at the time I didn't know that for many with IBS, FOS can actually exacerbate symptoms. If you have sensitivity to fructose and other FODMAPs, then this isn't a great choice because FOS is a FODMAP. For those that are sensitive, this means it will ferment in your gut, and can exacerbate IBS-D and IBS-C. If you know you aren't sensitive to these things, then it might be worth a shot.

Best replacement for five-star I've found

Posted by Umbridge on Oct 24, 2014

I've tried a lot of brands of nutritional yeast over the 20 years I've been vegetarian, and these are the best I've tried other than the five star and KAL brands, which are not sold on iHerb. These flakes are the right size, have that great umami flavour nooch is known for, and are a decent price.

Excellent oil for the skin and hair

Posted by Umbridge on May 12, 2013

I use this oil for washing my face. Basically, I just use half a dropper full of oil, rub it on, then place a hot washcloth on my face for about 30 seconds before wiping it off. That's it! I have adult acne, but haven't had a breakout since I've been using it. I love it, and think it's very much worth the price. I sometimes dab a bit in my hair to tame flyaways, but there are a bunch of uses that you can surely find online for this oil.

Flavourless, powerful

Posted by Umbridge on Jun 15, 2012

I was happy to see that this came as an essentially flavourless oil. I only take a few drops per day, rather than the massive does suggested on the label, so I haven't noticed any changes in my body (with the exception of improved skin...but I am not sure if that's from the K2). This is a great, convenient source of this vitamin, which is a challenge to get in a vegetarian diet.

Way too sweet and contains chicory

Posted by Umbridge on Jul 11, 2012

I guess I didn't read the description carefully, but this tea contains chicory, which is a no-go for many people with IBS (it is a FODMAP food...so it ferments in the gut). It is also far too sweet for my taste, which is a shame because the flavour of the tea seems good. It's just overpowered by a strong sweetness from the stevia.

Just as good as the more expensive powders

Posted by Umbridge on Feb 19, 2012

Most people I know use the more expensive Sun Warrior, but this is identical in taste and texture. No grittiness, not too sweet and nice, and the original flavour is great for baking as well as smoothies. I highly recommend it.

Nice hemp protein

Posted by Umbridge on Sep 06, 2011

I am a fan of most hemp proteins for certain applications, but I think it's really just a matter of taste. Some people love the nutty flavour (like me) but others gag over hemp. This is a great protein if you are looking for a high quality, tasty plain hemp protein powder. Don't expect it to mix as nicely as whey or soy or most other proteins, but play around with it and find ways you like it ( think it's great in protein pancakes, chia puddings, certain smoothies like ones that are pumpkin based, etc.)

Helps with my chronic hip problem

Posted by Umbridge on May 18, 2010

I have FAI syndrome from exercising too much (basically I have an extra bit of bone, which aggravates the joint and causes inflammation). I have decided to wait to have surgery since it's not causing me pain all of the time, but it does certainly affect my ability to run as much as I would like. I am starting to notice a real difference since I've been taking this, and my hip hasn't hurt ONE BIT this week (I've been taking it for a few weeks now). I definitely recommend this.

No iron is perfect, but this is pretty damn good

Posted by Umbridge on Sep 10, 2009

I have to take a few a day (usually one in the a.m. and one in the p.m.) because I am (WAS) anemic, but I have gone from anemic from just below normal in 3 months. Given that you only absorb 10% of the iron you take (no matter the source), this stuff works pretty damn good. No ill effects like other iron I have tried - no constipation, dark stools, nausea, etc.

Best iron I've tried

Posted by Umbridge on Sep 28, 2010

I take two of these a day, rather than the one per day of the mega-dose ones that doctors subscribe. it's worked a treat - no belly aches, no constipation, and my aenemia is gone.

Just like TJ's, and delivered right to your door!

Posted by Umbridge on Aug 05, 2011

I think perhaps the other reviewer was referring to Trader Joe's which used to have peanut flour, but discontinued it. I love that iHerb started carrying it. Peanut flour is so nutritious and versatile. I use it in baked goods, as a substitute for peanut butter, in smoothies, and even in things like African Peanut soup. It's delicious and higher in protein than using plain old peanut butter.

Happy to have teff!

Posted by Umbridge on Apr 22, 2012

We can't get teff in Australia, so I save this for special dishes (like injera!) or only use it in small amounts. I like that it is both gluten free and wholegrain, and mixed with other flours it makes a great multi-grain bread.
