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

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

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.

Did any of the ingredients trigger a bad bodily reaction?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Really great quality oil.

Posted on Apr 17, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

I use this on my sensitive skin, and I feel it is nurturing and good. But we are so different with regards to such products, so I am not going to argue for anyone else. (As other people may find this too greasy and too smelly etc etc.)

I thought cocoa would smell awful on my skin. How wrong I was.

Posted on Apr 17, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

I sometimes use it on my face in the evening, and I wake up with the feeling of the skin being soft and nice. And the smell of chocolate; in advance I thought it would be sickening. But it is not. My sense of smell is strong, but I find this smell gentle for my nose. (Different individuals will of course have different preferences and experiences of course.) Other unscented creams (for skin) with lots of different ingredients in them I smell all too well (exactly because of the many different ingredients), that these so-called 'unscented' creams can have a real sickening impact on me. Also since I am hypersensitive to a lot of substances (which many are unbeknownst to me), my eyes may feel and look puffy and run. (And no, I am not applying close to the area of the eyes for such a reaction to take place.) But I experience no problems with the smell or get any adverse reaction using this cocoa butter cream. It smells strongest when I apply it, but even then I tolerate the smell well. When I wake up in the morning, much of the scent have faded. And probably have I also become accustomed to that particular scent.

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.)

My favourite together with Larabars peanut and chocolate.

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I suffer from lots of allegies and food intolerances, but luckily I find that I tolerate most Larabar energy bars ok. I have bought almost all the different Larabar enegy bars in a matter of two months, and I rank this highly; this one to me gets the highest rating, together with Larabar's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. I had expected more fresh and delicous jelly in it though. It was more like dried up jam. But well, that's how it is: Healthy stuff rarely tastes as fantastic as the really unhealthy food stuff.

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.
