Vitamin D3 is powerful!

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

14 people found the following review helpful

This is my favorite vitamin supplement. I have noticed since taking this product that I have more energy, but I know that the benefits are much more. Been reading recently on the fantastic benefits of vitamin D and that D3 is the best form. There is plenty of scientific evidence that vitamin D has several different effects on immune system function that may enhance your immunity. It is important to know that Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most common micronutrient deficiencies. I read that spring, fall and summer noontime sunshine exposure provides adequate Vitamin D. So, stay out a short time if your skin is light, but stay out longer if your skin is dark. Very light-skinned individuals can make adequate Vitamin D from arm and face noontime exposure in 15 minutes or less. Very dark-skinned individuals may require up to 2 hours to achieve the same level. Skin color is adaptive to sunlight levels, so that people from equatorial regions are darker-skinned and people from Iceland, who are starved for sun and Vitamin D, are very light-skinned. It's interesting that primitive cultures living far from the equator prize the few foods that naturally concentrate Vitamin D3, like fish liver oil and sea mammal blubber. Cod liver oil is about the only food supplement that provides a lot of Vitamin D. It is important that individuals who are not frequently exposed to the sun, who regularly wear sunblock or who are dark-skinned take Vitamin D3 supplements.Also, individuals who are elderly or obese generally require more Vitamin D3. Many researchers feel these groups should take 5,000 IU daily. As you get older you have more difficulty absorbing D and fat cells tend to sequester (trap) Vitamin D. The blood test that is used to assess vitamin D status is 25-OH vitamin D. Optimum levels are 25-OH vitamin D levels of between 30 and 80 mg/dl. To summarize, I advise everyone to take Vitamin D3, because it is essential.

The only mouthwash I use !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

10 people found the following review helpful

I buy this mouthwash because I try to avoid using artificial chemicals and colorings. I am prone to getting canker sores - about two or three per month, minimum. While this mouthwash may not prevent a recurrence of sores, it certainly does not promote them and it seems to lessen the pain and the duration of the sores. I almost always get a sore right after I use a big brand name mouthwash. I would try to make my own mouthwash but this brand puts in so many quality ingredients already. I'm especially happy to see Echinacea, Green Tea Leaf, Goldenseal, Oregano, Coenzyme Q10 and Chlorophyll, which is about 1/3 of the ingredient list. I don't mind the herbal taste coupled with minty flavors. My only complaint is that the mint flavor does not last very long. I feel like my breath loses that fresh feeling soon after a gargle. For me, this is only a minor negative when considering a mouthwash. I prefer this to Jason, Tom's and Kiss My Face. Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil mouthwash would be an alternate if this product somehow disappeared from the market. Winter Mint is just as good as Cool Mint and I have not tried Cinna Mint. Definitely worth trying if you are looking for a natural, alcohol-free mouthwash, no syntetic solvents, no sodium-lauryl-sulfates, no artificial sweeteners, no artificial preservatives. If you are used to the weird colored blue & green stuff on store shelves, this stuff might come as a surprise to you. Tastes unlike any of those dye loaded disasters, & has an all natural brownish color. Give it a chance. Don't be scared. That other crap is well, crap & you should fear something that is electric blue!

I think this stuff works! You feel more driven to accomplish things. I notice that when I don't take it I'll have less energy. It's not a hyper energy it's more of a calm focused energy. The powder is great because you can mix it with drinks and it tastes kind of maltey. I sometimes eat it directly from the spoon and rinse it down with water. I've read it's even better for women to take because it balances their hormones which fluctuate more than men's do. You need to start slowly with the dosage and adjust it according to your body's needs, then take a break from it occasionally or it appears to lose potency(for example: 3 week ON, 1 week OFF). I recommend using 1 tsp to 1 tbsp in water mixing it up and drinking it as fast as possible in the morning. It taste bad but you can mix it with juice or something else (smoothies, shakes and tea). It is necessary to note that аnyone who has a sensitive digestive system must be careful with the raw maca. Like other cruciferous roots, maca is particularly difficult to digest when raw. Not only is it fiber-dense, it also contains lots of goitrogens - that's why the raw root and it's flour is so bitter - so it's no wonder people have digestive and occasional hormonal (thyroid) complaints.To avoid this issue maca should be cooked in order to be gentle on digestion, on metabolism, and it has always been cooked traditionally(by the native Puruvians)for this purpose! Another option for those with digestive issue is Gelatinized Maca Powder(iHerb carry gelatinized raw maca). Gelatinized means that it's fiber has been removed, and goitrogens denatured. The gelatinized product was developed specifically to address the digestion issue inherent with the root. To summarize, I give this maca powder a five star rating because it's simply great . This stuff makes you feel better than any multivitamin you'll find and I definitely recommend it.*****

This stuff stops a cold in it

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

3 people found the following review helpful

My brother brought home a sample roll of this he picked up at Ride your bike to work day. It sat in our cabinet until my nephew started preschool. Then everyone started getting sick. I popped one of these the day I felt symptoms coming on and I was immediately well. No symptoms at all. I stopped taking them and the symptoms returned. Popped another one and again...cold symptoms ceased. Everyone got a cold in my house but me. Which is hilarious since I am usually the first one to get what is going around and the last one to get over it. I was very impressed and immediately went online to research about acerola and I found that Acerola can be found growing wild and under cultivation on the sandy soils throughout north-eastern Brazil. It is native to northern South America, Central America, and Jamaica, Florida and Texas. The fruit of the Acerola Cherry tree, Malpighia punicifolia L. is rich in Vitamin C and carotenoids, with the cherry-like fruits being one of the richest known natural sources of vitamin C. The fresh fruit can contain up to 4000 mg Vitamin C per gram of fresh weight. Oranges provide 500 to 4,000 parts per million Vitamin C or ascorbic acid, while Acerola assays in the range of 16,000 to 172,000 parts per million. With its exceptional levels of vitamin C, Acreola is a great immune support. It’s also a great beauty agent – while vitamin C is powerful anti-aging tool, Acerola is also rich in Vitamin A, the vitamin needed for eyesight and healthy skin and hair. With such a high level of antioxidants, Acreola is useful to heal wounds, repair scars and fractures, reduce stress and battle free radicals. Acerola is an ideal food based source of nutrients necessary for immune support. Acerola is a rich source of vitamin C, bioflavonoids, carotenoids, and other vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients providing ideal synergy for immune cell function. This stuff rocks! Now we fight over them. I'm stocking up !

AMAZING!

For starters I want to make sure everyone knows I am a man. I say that for its obvious that for whatever reason the great many reviews available for this shampoo and many like it are from women. Perhaps its because more women are interested in approaching a thin hair problem from a standpoint of using a special shampoo, since actually losing it like men is not very likely. Or perhaps it is because a lot of men just don't like leaving reviews for products such as this. In any event, I do use this shampoo and find it very effective, and a bargain for what ingredients it has. I'm an man who's hair has seen healthier days, and I am taking all the steps I can to make sure that my hair won't be something just reminisced about in my memoirs. There is no real hair growth shampoo as far as I know, but a true thickening shampoo does do the job of making the best out of what you have. It works just as well as far as lathering as any other shampoo, is nice and thick and rich, and as far as the smell, I think it is very subtle. On other words, not really the most aromatic shampoo I have used to be sure, but not very strong in that area in any event. It carries a light medicinal scent that is not that bad at all in my opinion. As far as the way it works, the softness it leaves you with in your hair is nothing like I have felt in any other shampoo. It is definitely a thicker, more abundant feeling that can be well felt and seen. I have been using this Logona brand for some time now and not only like the feel of how it leaves my hair, but I like the price too. A quick search of thickening shampoos here on iHerb will show you that any vanity by us in this area does not come cheap. Most thickening shampoos cost much more than this to be sure. I am most satisfied with this Logona brand and am keeping it in stock as part of my anti hair thinning arsenal from now on. In conclusion, I highly recommend this shampoo for any man or woman that is in need or want of such a formula.

Nice sized capsules !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

6 people found the following review helpful

It's amazing how quickly you can go through a couple of hundred capsules! I use these basically for turmeric and cayenne pepper powder. These are a really nice size and having 200 capsules means not having to worry about running out (after sending out a couple of hundred to friends and relatives). And the price of these on Amazon was much cheaper than what my local health food store is charging. I will totally order these again.

It works way beyond expectations !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

I bought this Jason PowerSmile toothpaste last week at the recommendation of a friend - who suffers from canker sores, like I do. She said she liked the taste and found that it (being free of SLS) did not seem to bring on or aggravate her canker sores. The day I bought this toothpaste, I happened to have had a bad canker sore on my tongue. I had no expectations of this toothpaste helping, but I was just happy to find another SLS-free toothpaste, for variety. Well, was I in for a surprise! A few minutes after brushing with Jason PowerSmile, my sore hurt LESS. That wasn't really expected, as the mint is somewhat strong (I like it quite a bit, though) and I was concerned that it might be irritating. Then I thought, perhaps the mint numbed the sore - but no, the sore didn't hurt worse later. In fact, it didn't really hurt again, though it's still there (4 days later). An added bonus - my teeth are literally squeaky clean after I brush. When I rubbed my finger across my teeth, my husband looked at me and said "Do you have a mouse in your mouth?". And the strange thing, usually after I have something sweet, I feel the build-up on my teeth. With PowerSmile, I don't - there must be some ingredient that provides the equivalent of a "car wax" on my teeth. Also, this product is completely vegan. For those of you that don't know what that means: absolutely none of the ingredients came from animal sources and they were not tested on animals either. And, the main complaint I've heard about this toothpaste is that it has a bad taste or aftertaste. I did not find this to be the case. It doesn't taste as synthetic or sweet as the average toothpaste, but there's nothing unpleasant about the flavor IMHO (I didn't notice any aftertaste whatsoever). The flavor is one of relatively mild, natural peppermint (NOT artificial peppermint flavor, which is pretty different). All in all, a good product for the price and lack of synthetic ingredients.

Simple the BEST sport product !

Love this stuff ! I actually look forward to drinking this every day. I take a drink about three minutes before my first rep and I can feel it kick in right away. I drink it consistently through my work out and it keeps me going the whole way. The taste of Raspberry Blueis is fantastic and it gives me a boost almost instantly. In one serving Xtend has a 7000 mg of BCAA`s, in a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine,Isoleucine and Valine, as Leucine is the key ingredient to stimulate muscle protein synthesis. It has also 2500 mg of Glutamine which promote better overall recovery, so you can feel that after hard trening workout. I like also and Citrulline Malate in, which help me with higher training volumes and higher exercise intensity. But I like it most because contain no carbohydrates or sugar, so it is big advantage for me when I am on diet. For me, a BCAA supplement ranks high on my list of supplement priorities, and Xtend currently occupies the top spot on the list of intra-workout products that I`ve tried. Although not packed with some of the goodies of other products, Xtend still delivers everything you need and a little bit more. The wide variety of flavors and the fact, that it has one of the best tasting supplements on the market make Xtend an excellent product and one of my personal favorites.

Excellent supplement !

Milk thistle is an excellent way to prevent liver disease and damage, and high cholesterol. I have a family history of both so I do everything I can to prevent something irreversible from happening. Milk thistle is a core piece of my health prevention routine. I also take Thorne Research, Siliphos, Silybin Phytosome (Silybum marianum extract (seed) / Phosphatidylcholine complex) which is a lesser known yet more powerful version of milk thistle. The Jarrows Formula is excellent and I still have a bottle in my cabinet, although I've been more turned onto powder supplements in general just because their ability to more fully absorb into the bloodstream. I have definitely felt an increased sense of wellness in particularly after having a few cocktails - there is a marked reduction in any hangover symptoms. I will not wait for something terrible to happen before I start taking a pro-active approach to my health although I know this is the case for many people. Thorne Research, Siliphos has actually been shown to reverse liver damage although there is nothing better than prevention of course. No matter where your health is, do your research, talk to your doctor and look into such supplements as Thorne Research, Siliphos and Milk thistle. Best of luck! P.S.:Their manufacturing facility is located in Southern California. The Milk Thistle raw material comes from Bulgaria, Romania or Poland. Watch out for other brands whose products are made in China!

Great product !

This mask works wonders on my skin! I love how it makes my skin feel. The scent was refreshing.I smells very good and i love the cool tingling feeling. Mint Julep Masque is a thick, green, clay based mask, the main ingredients being: Kaolin (a type of fine, pure clay), Bentonite (an absorbent clay formed from volcanic ash), and Glycerin (which has moisturising properties). The texture is like a very thick cream or paste. The packaging said to "apply generously" and then wait 15 minutes. I applied an opaque layer over my face, but it took at least 30 minutes before it was really dry. After putting it on there is a tingly sensation and you can really feel the product working. Do not use after exfoliating. It will burn more. When I washed the masque off, the pores on my nose were practically gone. Which was amazing! I was very pleased with this product for that reason alone. Immediate visible improvement, it's not just my pores. My entire face is evened out and brighter. Amazing that an inexpensive product can do this! I generally use high end products. But this is a keeper despite its low price and a small amount does go a long way. One application per week and the result is great. I am more confident because I have a clean professional looking face. This is a great product and totally worth it's price! I would definitely purchase this product again. P.S.: As a regimen, if you have oily acne prone skin I HIGHLY recommend the following regimen: 1: Queen Helenes Mint Julep Masque = Blemish Control/Treatment 2: Witch Hazel mixed with a teensy bit of Hydrogen Peroxide and Tea Tree Oil (tea tree and peroxide is optional) = Toner/Astringent 3: Phisoderm ph Balanced Anti Blemish Gel Facial Wash = Cleanser 4: Phisoderm Oil Free Moisturizer with SPF = Moisturizer

Makes skin smoother & softer.

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

I used 15-16 samples of this. Although this product does not moisturize, at least in this eastern(europe) climate, I definitely notice that it makes my skin smoother and softer. I like the idea that it is pure hyaluronic acid. The results are even more marked on my neck. I absolutely have to put a moisturizer on top of it, but the humidity here is generally around 50%.
