This is one of the most reasonable priced fish oils I have seen, and I trust Madre Labs. The softgels are transparent, normal sized and without taste. To test the fishoil inside, I crushed a softgel between my teeths. As expected it didn't taste particularly nice, but the taste was fresh, meaning that the totox-value is at an acceptable level. The problem with softgels are, that you don't taste the oil inside, and tests have shown, that quite a lot of fish oil softgels contain spoiled fishoil with hight totex-values. This one seems fine though. ======================================================================================================= Click my name KurtJacobsen ▲ at the top of this review (blue text) to visit my profile and learn more, thanks! ======================================================================================================= iHerb.com has become my favorite place to shop supplements, and I'm not alone, because iHerb has been named #1 online supplement store by ConsumerLab.com the last 6 years in a row!

Suitable potency and good absorbtion

Purchased at iHerb

Capsules are regular size and easy to swallow, and I like that the jar has screw cap. The safety seal is a bit too safe for my taste (difficult to remove by hand), but this is a minor detail. The orange capsules are not completely tasteless, but it's OK. I have chosen Doctor's Best, because it's cheap and a well-known brand. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. I use Q10 every day. Up to 1200mg is considered to be safe level, but high intake can cause stomach problems, and I find that 100 mg/day is a suitable level, considering the high absorption in this product. ======================================================================================================= Click my name KurtJacobsen ▲ at the top of this review (blue text) to visit my profile and learn more, thanks! ======================================================================================================= iHerb.com has become my favorite place to shop supplements, and I'm not alone, because iHerb has been named #1 online supplement store by ConsumerLab.com the last 6 years in a row!

The tablets are small and easy to swallow. I also like, that they put in extra 10% at no extra cost. I take mine in the morning, because vitamin D is also known to affect daytime/nighttime rhythm. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. Depending on where you live, you might want to take 1-4 tablets a day - see below. ======================================================================================================= In modern life with indoor work, most people rarely expose their skin to the sun. It is suggested, that 80% of americans (and probably the rest of the world as well) are deficient i vitamin D, with severe health damage. Most adults should supplement with at least 2000 IU per day at summertime, and at least 4000 IU at winter. ======================================================================================================= Click my name KurtJacobsen ▲ at the top of this review (blue text) to visit my profile and learn more, thanks! ======================================================================================================= iHerb.com has become my favorite place to shop supplements, and I'm not alone, because iHerb has been named #1 online supplement store by ConsumerLab.com the last 6 years in a row!

Great for bone strength and wound healing!

I use these to increase my bone strength. The tablets are a bit big - not a problem to me, but I thought I'd mention it. I take one tablet twice a week. This evens out to over 40 mg/day as suggested in the study (see below), and it's really cheap too. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. As allways, Now Foods deliver great value for less money! The bottle is double secured with both sealed snap lid and extra security seal on the bottle itself, both easy to open. ======================================================================================================= The so called "Framingham Offspring" study showed, that subjects with the highest silicon intake (over 40 mg/day) had the strongest bones and those with low intake (below 14 mg/day) had the weakest bones. A typical multivitamin contains 2 mg - way to low! Silicon also improves collagen formation in general and also wound healing! Some suggest making bone and joint broth soup as an alternative, but I know myself well enough to know, that I'll never get around getting it done, especially not an a regular basis. ======================================================================================================= Click my name KurtJacobsen ▲ at the top of this review (blue text) to visit my profile and learn more, thanks! ======================================================================================================= iHerb.com has become my favorite place to shop supplements, and I'm not alone, because iHerb has been named #1 online supplement store by ConsumerLab.com the last 6 years in a row!

Optimal selenium intake is 200-400 mcg/day. It's primarily found in meats and seafood. If you eat a lot of protein from different sources, you probably don't need supplementing, but otherwise 200 mcg a day is a perfect level for supplementing. Don't supplement with more than 2-400 mcg, as selenium and other metals are toxic when overdosed. In order to let the body regulate levels, it's recommended to drink plenty of water and excercise regularly to produce sweat. I take one serving every day. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. ======================================================================================================= Click my name KurtJacobsen ▲ at the top of this review (blue text) to visit my profile and learn more, thanks! ======================================================================================================= iHerb.com has become my favorite place to shop supplements, and I'm not alone, because iHerb has been named #1 online supplement store by ConsumerLab.com the last 6 years in a row!

Important supplement!

Purchased at iHerb

High intakes of choline has tremendeous health benefits. It was not officially recognized as an essential nutrient until 1998. RDA is around 500 mg per day, and by these standards 95% of americans are deficient. Choline is primarily found in egg yolks and liver - foods that most people eat less than ever before. I don't eat these foods much myself either, so I supplement every day with a 420 mg choline softgel from Natural Factors. I'm perfectly happy with them, and will purchase again when they run low. ======================================================================================================= Click my name KurtJacobsen ▲ at the top of this review (blue text) to visit my profile and learn more, thanks! ======================================================================================================= iHerb.com has become my favorite place to shop supplements, and I'm not alone, because iHerb has been named #1 online supplement store by ConsumerLab.com the last 6 years in a row!

I take one of theese every day. Capsules are small and easy to swallow, and I like that the jar is easy to open, and relatively small, which is good for both the environment and my storage space. It's not rocket science, just plain and simple vitamin C, and I think most brands will do just fine. I have chosen Thompsons, because it's cheap and the company has been around forever. I'm perfectly happy with this product, and will purchase again when it runs low. ======================================================================================================= 30% of US adults are deficient in vitamin C, according to NHANES, and this is plain stupid, since vitamin C is cheap and supplementation is without risks, even in high doses. In my opinion, everyone should consider supplementing. RDA is set as low as 90 mg for adult males, and some would go for at less potent supplement because of that. But NHANES surveys shows, that men supplementing with 800 mg or more, lives 6 years longer than those supplementing only with RDA. Since no negative effect is known and even extremely high doses (120g intraveneus doses) are considered safe, I for one won't settle for less than 1000 mg a day. ======================================================================================================= Click my name KurtJacobsen ▲ at the top of this review (blue text) to visit my profile and learn more, thanks! ======================================================================================================= iHerb.com has become my favorite place to shop supplements, and I'm not alone, because iHerb has been named #1 online supplement store by ConsumerLab.com the last 6 years in a row!

Recommended product - (but remember to balance with sufficient vitamin D as well)

Posted on May 23, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

The optimal daily intake of vitamin A is around 10,000 IU. If you eat a lot of egg yolks and liver you might get sufficient amounts. Personally, I don't eat eggs every day, and I never eat liver. Therefore, I have decided to supplement with theese softgels. (Vitamin A should be balanced with vitamin D however, because a daily dose of 10,000 IU vitamin A is not healthy if one is deficient in vitamin D - remember to get 4000 IU of vitamin D). I take one serving of this vitamin A every day. I'm perfectly happy with it, and will purchase again when it runs low. ======================================================================================================= Click my name KurtJacobsen ▲ at the top of this review (blue text) to visit my profile and learn more, thanks! ======================================================================================================= iHerb.com has become my favorite place to shop supplements, and I'm not alone, because iHerb has been named #1 online supplement store by ConsumerLab.com the last 6 years in a row!

Tablets are a little large, not that it's a problem to me. I take 100 mg B1 only once a week, because the human body has sufficient stores for a week or more. This is well above RDA, but since B1 is water-soluble, any excess is just excreted in urine at no risk. They have added 10% extra to the bottle at no extra cost, and it will last me a couple of years.

I take one of theese every day. Capsules are small and easy to swallow, and I like that the jar is easy to open, and relatively small, which is good for both the environment and my storage space. It's not rocket science, just plain and simple vitamin K, and I think most brands will do just fine. I have chosen Thompsons, because it's cheap and the company has been around forever. I'm perfectly happy with this product, and will purchase again when it runs low. You should take this with a meal containing fat, since vitamin K is fat soluble. ======================================================================================================= Most americans (and probably most people world-wide) are deficient in vitamin K, according to several studies, and this is plain stupid, since vitamin K is cheap and supplementation is without risks, even in high doses. In my opinion, everyone should consider supplementing. Vitamin K has no significant storage pool in the body, so deficiency can devolop within days. Since no negative effect is known and even extremely high doses (500 times bigger than this product) are considered safe, I gladly spend a couple of bucks on this supplement. ======================================================================================================= Click my name KurtJacobsen ▲ at the top of this review (blue text) to visit my profile and learn more, thanks! ======================================================================================================= iHerb.com has become my favorite place to shop supplements, and I'm not alone, because iHerb has been named #1 online supplement store by ConsumerLab.com the last 6 years in a row!

I trust "the perfect health diet" in recommending 500 mg once a week. The body is perfectly able to store Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), so I prefer taking on big dose a week instead of smaller doses on a daily basis. It's both easyer and cheaper.
