Did any of the ingredients trigger a bad bodily reaction?

Posted on Apr 09, 2014

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I have read on other places that people speak badly about Magnesium Stearate and Stearic Acid (two of the listed ingredients), claiming that the mentioned preservatives make a layer in the digestive system, which in turn inhibits the absorption of the active ingredients of a supplement. But since I have not felt bad when taking other supplements with the two mentioned additives, I have to blame my bad reaction on something else: Perhaps it is one of the four artificial colours in this product that I don't tolerate? Between words: Why on Earth does any product need as much as four different artificial colours? It was a rhetorical question because yes, I know the answer: They made that mix of artificial colours as they wanted the tablet to look 'nice'. Well, producers of health supplements should have understood a long time ago that people want health supplements to be as natural as possible without unnecessary additives in them; the more additives in a product, the more the chances are that the product becomes less healthy. Or perhaps I simply had a bad reaction to the active ingredient itself; could it be that the active ingredient is derived from the Marigold plant? (The bottle doesn't say so.) If it happens to be Marigold, I think I have the answer: Because I reacted badly on 'Doctor's Best' Lutein as well, which active ingredient is derived from the Marigold plant. I can't be generous with stars considering my personal experience with this product.

Contets tells of a good product, but I tolerate it poorly.

After taking the pills, it builds up on the upper part of the stomach and it becomes this reflux situation. Without even burping I get this sensation of taste up my throat and experience fur on my tongue. And I feel slightly nauseous for hours. Not only I tolerated it poorly, but so did my mother. And she doesn't even have the same troubles with food substances like I do. Strange.

Tastes very good compared to other spirulina brands I have tried.

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

If I am to trust what it says on the label regarding the purety of the production as well as the process of this brand's spirulina, I am more than satisfied with it. It tastes really well. It tastes slightly better than a product I bought from Germany; not a known brand, and for all I know the German trader could have got the spirulina from China - and it could have had toxins in it without my knowledge. Also I have tried one bottle of Now Foods' Spirulina, as well as a brand I bought fifteen years ago (I don't remember which brand), and by far the other spirulina I have tried didn't taste as fresh and good as this product. If I am to explain the difference? The Hawaiian tastes less 'off' and it is also a bit sweeter in the taste. The colour looks green and nice. But then we all know that colour may deceive, as sometimes artificial colour is added. (Not saying that colour is added to spirulina. It is never needed. I'm just speaking generally.) But if you are familiar with a certain food substance from personal experience, then you have a point of reference; from there you should always trust your nose (and tongue). Your nose can discern the difference between products, and can reveal the quality of a product. Yes, trust the nose and don't think: "Oh, this supplement smells a bit rotten, but the expire date says December 2025, so it means that I can eat it." (Wrong reasoning.) By far trust your nose before an expiry date. Also this particular spirulina blends a lot easier in water than my past experiences with spirulina. With the three other spirulina brands I have tested, once I had it in water it clogged. Then I had to rub the spirulina against the glass with the teaspoon till most of the clogs were gone. Quite some effort. But this Hawaiian Spirulina mixes so much easier with water. It makes me wonder whether either it has much less fatty acids in it, or whether the cells are broken down so well that this spirulina clogs less? My overall impression of this Hawaiian Spirulina is that it is superior. But then I have only tested this one batch. Another batch may be different. I hope not. I hope that Nutrex will quality check all their Hawaiian Spirulina so that all batches will be great. So for now I am really happy about this Hawaiian spirulina. And just some general info about spirulina: It is well known to be a superfood with lots of good stuff in it. Essential amino acids, GLA, vitamin A, B, D, E, and minerals and more. And spirulina also has a somewhat 'cleansing' effect, but not as much as chlorella. Though I must say that I do prefer spirulina to chlorella as it is easier to digest. Without doubt I give five bright stars to Pure Hawaiian Spirulina.

Good quality krill oil.

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

Krill oil is often much more agreeable to the stomach than ordinary cod liver oil. Sensitive people should try this instead of cod liver oil. It is good for cardiovascular health. This product is good. I have nothing more to add.

Easily soluble

Posted on Sep 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I like Sodium Ascorbate quite better than Ascorbate Acid because it dissolves so easily in liquid; this property makes me think that that Sodium Ascorbate possibly doesn't create kidney stones the way we risk getting by using Ascorbate Acid, but I don't know whether it this is a reasonble conclusion though. Also I feel that it has effect on me. I really like it.

Perfect for my sensitive stomach!

Posted on Apr 09, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

I have a sensitivity to many substances, but I do tolerate this zinc product very well. Zinc Picolinate is said to be more gentle on the stomach than other types of zinc, and it happens to be true in my experience. I have bought several boxes of this zinc brand, and I will definitely buy more in future. A very reasonable product, gentle for the stomach, and efficient as well. Can one ask for more? Five stars from me.

Absolutely fantastic taste!

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I received the package yesterday and today I brewed tea on this. Licoice root, cinnamon, anise, orange peel, chamomile and cloves, it really sounds a bit much of Christmas to me. Yes, it had a slight taste of Christmas, but not too much. In fact I found this tea very refreshing. Anyway, regarding licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra), it seems to be a 'miracle' herb according to some sites. Mention a complaint and it works for it. I don't believe in such extreme claims. But it has a well-documented reputation for healing ulcers Also licorice root is fifty times sweeter than sugar, without the ill-effects that white sugar provides. So if feeling the urge for something naturally sweet, this is it. Definitely five stars from me.

Greatest Citrulline product I have ever tried.

Posted on Jan 01, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

I am hypersensible to quite a lot of substances, and with NOW's L-Citrulline, I would feel sick for each capsule I took. And a certain pain would be felt in my stomach. (I would also react on a third brand to which name I now don't recall.) With Primaforce's Citrulline Malate powder, I don't feel bad in my stomach at all. On NOW's Citrulline declaration it doesn't reveal the process to which their citrulline is produced. May it be some other type of chemical compounds used as a basis than the ones Primaforce uses? Because Primaforce's Citrulline is made up by Citrulline Malate. (Perhaps NOW's product is made up by something else than 'malate'?) Unlike NOW's product, Primaforce's Citrulline product has no helping agents in it. (I doubt it is the helping agents that I react on regarding NOW's Citrulline product, since I tolereate those same help agents in other products, so I do believe it is their citrulline itself I react on.) I really love Primaforce's Citrulline product, and I feel great effect by taking it. Beware though, that this powder has a very strong acidic/citrus taste. Significantly more than the two other products that I have tried. But that should be no problem if you mix it with juice. (You may wonder why I know that NOW's product has a less strong acidic/citric taste, since they have their citrulline product packed into gelatine capsules: Unless a product tastes absolutely awful, I always open the gelatine capsules and pour the content straight on my tongue.) Primaforce Citrulline Malate product undoubtly gets top score from me.

I didn't buy this for me, but I kept one for myself!

Posted on Apr 17, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

I don't really suffer from dry hands. But when I tested this hand cream, I was amazed by the neutral smell of it. And as a sensitive person, I didn't get any bad reaction to the smell of it. Since the ingredients are natural, one can use the cream to other areas than the hands. I don't use it on my hands, but other places. On my skin of course - it becomes too expensive to rub this cream on all the walls! :o)

Great for sunburn! (This aloe is almost as pure as you can get it.)

Posted on Apr 17, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

Hadn't it been for the Xanthan gum I would call it 'all pure'. Xanthan gum isn't a bad product, but I feel it makes the gel less pure. Of course, had it been more pure, it would be more runny again. But a runny aloe gel doesn't bother me - for my use. But I truly love this gel! It is the closest to another gel I used years ago. If you - or someone in your family - get a burn from the sun, use this as soon as you discover the burn, and I can almost guarantee you that within hours, the redness is gone. This is of course, if you haven't got yourself a second degree burn. But even if the burn is severe, I believe that this aloe gel is able to prevent some of the worst damage on the skin. Other people use aloe gel as a skin moisturizer. I personally don't like any aloe gel products on my skin on a daily basis, as they dry on and feel like a stiff mask on my face.)

Who needs dinner and dessert when we have this one?

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

First the taste of the dark chocolate appeared with a hint of vanilla. Next came the burning sensation from the chilli. And at last came a really desired taste of berries. It all really balanced so well; the nice bitterness of the chocolate, the spice from the chilli and finally the fresh taste of the berries. Finally as the overwhelming variety of different tastes faded, a really nice vague sweetness remained in my mouth. So many nice tastes in one bite, hence my subject line! The taste of sour was fortunately not included here. I would not enjoy the taste of pickled herring along with the other tastes ;-) Of course I wasn't serious about the headline though, as we need a healthy rich diet. I have only tasted this chocolate today, but I already love it!

Typical old fashioned chocolate.

Posted on Jul 11, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

This chocolate tastes just as it is named; in addition to the chocolate it's a hint of toffee and almonds. And it has a sweetness that carries me back to my childhood; it's a typical milky and sweet chocolate that should appeal to most kids. Having intolerance against dairies, I only tasted a small bite though, for this review. Five stars.
