Staying Alive

New to iHerb? Use coupon code DAP415 for up to $10.00 off your first order.


In my fifties, and looking great. Yeah, I'm a little chubby, but my hair is all brown and shiny (naturally), and my skin is not wrinkled (has some sun damage, but less than a lot of ladies my age). I can still dance and lift a small Volkswagen if I have to, in a crisis. Oh, it's all about staying alive and getting to that goal of doing nothing but fun stuff! Well, this page was supposed to be all about me, so that's why I said it! Where else can I say all this? Life can be really difficult, if you let it.

Fantastic

I purchased this based on a review that stated this was the best hot chocolate the reviewer had ever had. Well, it is for me too, and I am 51! At only 50 calories and 6 grams of sugar for 3 tablespoons, I thought for sure this would need sweetening, so I was prepared with my vanilla almond milk and agave. But, I decided to give it a try without adding anything first, and was SO shocked, (and I used only 3 teaspoons, not tablespoons). The chocolate is so rich and delicious, with tiny morsels or nibs in it. The nibs melt in hot liquid, but taste great on their own I mean, I eat this stuff right out of the can. As far as a hot drink, it is superb. I've officially made this a staple, aside my reishi coffee. So, move over regular coffee, and bye bye fattening chocolate bars, with all that saturated milk fat and calories from sugar. This stuff is packed with pure antioxidants and is naturally delicious.

Lasts eons

This tube lasts for months. It does have a thick sort of color, more so than just a gloss. But, it turns kind of brick red with a hint of orange on my lips. I use it around the house, in case I am surprised by a handsome stud and am not totally without makeup. It's all natural, so I feel pretty good about it, rather than wearing lipstick 24/7.

Helped me retain my gallbladder!

Posted on Feb 16, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

About two years ago, after much agony and useless trips to the ER, I discovered I had gall sludge (small particles, thousands of them). Yes, I saw them in my number 2's. I battled it out with my doctors, until they told me if I came back in, they were going to send me straight to a surgeon, without even asking. Needless to say, I did NOT go back. I did my research, and became a vegetarian instantly. Plus, I took this product. About one bottle later, the miserable aches and devastating pangs of pain subsided. Two bottles and a few months later, I was practically normal. Two years later, eating fish now, and chicken maybe twice a year, and I am still symptom free. BUT, at the slightest tinge on my right side, I pop a couple of these pills, just to be sure. I KNOW these were a major factor in cleansing my gallbladder. Plus, I KNOW this company is stellar. Next to Enzymatic Therapy, Natural Factors and Dynamic Health are two of my favorites. Oh, and my son is a nutritionist, working as head nutrition consultant in a health food store for 4 years, and he poo-poos so many of these companies, but concurs this is an excellent one.

Stress is down

I purchased Doctor's Best Serrapeptase in conjunction with Biochem circupressure. My symptoms were a combination of stage 1 high blood pressure and SEVERE TMJ headaches. I believe this specific product is the main factor in reduction of my tension and stess, while circu-pressure directly reduced the pressure. After about two days of using both products faithfully, I documented a slight drop in my diastolic blood pressure, and started to feel slightly better. After one week, my pressure dropped 10 points on the bottom and about five on the top. Since then, it has consistently gotten better, and my headaches have diminished to null. I thank GOD I had the brain to do proper research. Most of all, I thank the wonderful people who took the time to write their personal reviews, and I thank iherb.com for their magnificent service, pricing and products. Just this week, I experienced what it felt like to be normal again, and life was good. In this dreadful, stressful economy, my stress will never go away. Dealing with it, however, is paramount and CAN be done. If you are feeling like I did, ready to practically croak in my late 40's from the pain and pounding in my head and stess on my soul, please consider these supplements. Noises do not have to get on your nerves, and you CAN focus properly and function in all the hubub of stores, traffic, etc., without blowing a fuse. More importantly, high blood pressure is detrimental to your health. Diet and exercise are great, so is magnesium and garlic. But, if you want to avoid those miserable prescriptions with deadly side effects, these are the products for you.

No salt and tastes good

Title says it all. No salt, and tastes good. Plus, it dissolves easily. I became best friends with this product two years ago, when I was battling gallbladder issues and began a vegetarian regiment. It has very tiny bits of vegetables, like particles of carrots, etc., so you can feel like you are eating a little bit of something, even though it is virtually calorie-free.

Sweet

Purchased at iHerb

This bottle has lasted forever for me. It only takes a dollup to smooth around on your face, for a peachy smooth feeling. It dissolves makeup and oil easily, and you feel nice and clean, without any harsh feeling. Plus, NO PARABENS. Methylparabens destroy the outer layer of the epidermis that is responsible for making keratin, the substance that protects your skin from infection and aging. This product line had none of that nonsense. Andalou, is from Andolusia, Spain.

Excellent for high blood pressure

Purchased at iHerb

I have a tendency towards high blood pressure. Actually, I HAD high blood pressure, and ran the gammut with several herbs, vitamins, compounds, etc. I have been taking this twice a day for about five weeks, and for the first time in two years my blood pressure is normal, and my headaches have completely disappeared. Circu-pressure is also a good product, and I recommend taking the two together until you have stabilized. Then, take this hawthorn extract regularly to maintain. If your blood pressure does not decrease, then maybe medication is for you, as hypertension is a silent killer. For me, I fought it out and this product helped me win the battle.

Get the cards, print or write the code, pass 'em out. You'll be shocked one day, to see money in your account. I give out about a dozen per week.

Tastes excellent, and does not give me the jitters. Moreover, one tiny scoop (included) makes a full cup of coffee. I have ordered this several times, and plan on doing so for a good, long time. The reishi mushroom is key in fighting cancer cells. Plus, it is very cost-effective, much more so than brewing coffees, as it is concentrated and instant. Instant coffee, actually retains more of the antioxidants than non-instant, because of the process of freeze drying (I learned this on Dr. Oz).

Nice shine

Posted on Feb 16, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Does not cover gray, at all. But, it gives hair a nice glow. I miss my shiny hair from younger years, and do not wish to use any type of dye, as I still have brown hair in my 50's with a few gray hairs in front. But, my hair is not as golden as it used to be, because I do not bask in the sun or sea any more. So, this gives my hair a natural glow, so people still compliment me on my hair. It only lasts about a month or so in the hair. Oh, and most importantly, after applying, that day or the next day, you will be like "I don't see a darn difference". Then, the next day, BAM, you see it. I believe it takes at least a day to sink into the keratin of the hair, so don't dismay if you don't notice anything at first, and even if it seems like your hair is slightly stiff the first day. The stiffness will disappear and the shine will take over the next day.

Golden brown is better

Posted on Feb 16, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I have naturally golden brown hair, turning more chestnut as I age. I tried this one and the golden brown (several times). The golden blonde (this one), does not seem to do much at all to my hair. The golden brown, however; gives it a nice glow, almost like highlights. Also, I tried this on my mother's gray hair, and it turned it an unusual strawberry blonde color (to put it nicely). I am thinking you need to have already blonde hair to use this, or you risk having no effect, or a pinkish color.
