Hi, I am a freelance journalist, predominantly producing health features and treatment reviews and an author of four books, three of the self-help genre and one, Toxic Beauty, discussing the hazardous toxic chemicals used in everyday cosmetic and personal care products. I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and have found various useful products on Iherb. I honestly don't know where I'd be without Iherb since the product prices are so reasonable and enable me to purchase supplements I wouldn't have access to in the UK. I purchase most of my natural beauty products and snacks from Iherb as they seem to offer some good organic protein snacks that aren't ludicrously high in sugar and some great organic skincare lines. I I hope my Iherb reviews give you some insight into my thoughts about the products Iherb carry.

Lower dose

Posted on May 17, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Great that it's a lower dose, I can't say I noticed any benefits but have heard good things from others taking DHEA. I think you need to be really careful messing around with your hormone levels and if you have health problems it's better to do it through diet.

Great for liver cleansing

Posted on May 17, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Seems to clear the fogginess a little and help boost liver health. I mix it with other herbal teas such as nettle (detoxifying), peppermint (to ease the stomach) and liquorice (for balancing blood sugar).

Good iron

This is a good product but I do wish they wouldn't put brewer's yeast in everything because it causes me fungal problems. Other than that I like the Garden of Life Vitamin Code.

Does help with fat loss

Posted on May 17, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

In my experience taking CLA made me leaner and got rid of some fat from areas that I was finding it hard to shift such as the stomach area. Once you stop taking it though it does come back and I am not sure how great it is to take CLA in the long term. I know in one study the rats developed fat around their liver despite losing fat from the abdomen so I don't know how safe it is, but in the short term I think it's a great way of getting leaner.

Helpful for infections

Purchased at iHerb

I do find when I take silver it seems to have an anti-bacterial effect. Sometimes this can cause detox symptoms, but it's a good product.

So so

Posted on May 17, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Not a great taste but it's ok if you mix it with other herbal teas like licorice. I prefer ginseng vials for an energy boost rather than the tea, they seem to have a more pronounced effect.

Energy boost!

Posted on May 17, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Gave me some extra energy but I hated the taste and it made my skin feel a bit itchy. It seems to work for others though so worth a try.

It's ok for a natural color

Posted on May 17, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Red is wildly inaccurate with these natural henna type products and bright orange is more apt, but I expected that anyway. It's ok, nothing special.

No impact

Purchased at iHerb

Some have great energy and mood boosting with this but I noticed absolutely nothing. I think it's one of those things that either does something huge or nothing at all.

Bit too intense

Posted on May 17, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I find the Betaine HCI causes further stomach irritation as I have gut inflammation but others report wonderful effects so I think it's one of those things you need to try and see if it works for you.

Not bad

Purchased at iHerb

This was fine. I gave up on agave because it's so high in fructose and it's terrible for blood sugar levels, but found this one to be ok. Prefer some other brands.

Disappointing

Posted on Feb 11, 2012

Why make something 99% aloe vera gel and then make the remaining contents toxic chemicals? I don't understand why brands do this. It's great that it's predominantly aloe vera but why not make the other fillers natural too?
