I have been into nutrition and natural healing for many years. I always try to attack the root cause of any problem versus only addressing symptoms (the curent Western Medical model). I also have formal training in herbalism. I started to use iherb in 2011 and have been a repeat customer since. Their website is informative, fast and user friendly. I have found their service to be accurate and timely. As a public service, I share my experiences (good, bad or neutral) with products I know. I try to keep them brief but always with substance. Let's be honest, 1 sentence reviews are mostly useless. If you found my reviews helpful, consider indicating that by clicking on the "YES" button. Finally, if you are thinking of placing your first order from iHerb, take note of the special value added information near the top of this page. Peace and good health.

A very good alternative to NSAID

Posted on Jul 04, 2013

7 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

This product has helped me with inflamation in soft tissues like my muscles, ligaments and tendons. In general I find Curcumin products very effective as an anti-inflamatory. This product is enhanced to be better absorbable. I have followed the instructions and it seemed to work as well as other Curcumin products but I have not had to take as much to get a similar effect. This was a pleasant surprise. This is a very safe approach versus taking Ibuprofin and other NSAID's. I have been using Life Extention products for a few years and I never get disappointed with their quality. They are always on the leading edge of new developments in the field of natural health care.

Dr. Murray has a great book

This brief book on Stress, anxiety and insomnia is a excellent read for anyone with any of these issues and does not want to take the drug route. He gets right to the point with some very practicle approaches to all of these issues. There is also some excellent information on blood sugar management as that can be a cause of insomnia and of course other health issues. He suggests many natural products which you can get at your local health food store or on line at iherb. I have tried some personnally and recommended some of the very ideas he shares and they often are effective. Remember nothing works on everyone 100% of the time as we are all complicated individuals. You can get this book for FREE with any order. If you found this review helpful, kindly visit my iHerb home page by clicking on my handle name above. You will see my other value added reviews.

Excellent Cal Mag product

Posted on Apr 16, 2013

7 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I have been using this product from Pioneer for over 5 years. I like the fact that they use a form of calcium from Grass fed bovine bone and include trace minerals from a seaweed source. They also include a small amount of vitamin D3 (not much) which research has shown is a more desirable form than D2. The magnesium is needed to absorb the calcium. Boron is an important trace mineral needed to prevent bone demineralization (osteoporosis). It is typically found in root vegetables but with aggressive farming techniques I am not confidant I will always get enough. Although it is a tablet, it does dissolve well. I have tested it in vinegar. If you found this review helpful, kindly visit my iHerb home page and read more of my reviews. Just click on my handle name above to get there. Peace and good health.

Great product - Great company

Purchased at iHerb

This is very similar to Bach Rescue Remedy. Some say it works better. I think it is just as good at a minimum and it costs less. This is great to help with any kind of stress or trauma. Also good for pets that anxious or upset. Just put a few drops in their mouth or water if that is too hard. It can also work topically. Remember this is a stock bottle vs. a dosage bottle. FES is a leading producer of flower essence products and research. I trust them to make a high quality product. The intention of those making it is just as important as the mechanics of making it. This is energy medicine. If you found this review helpful kindly visit my iHerb home page and see more value added reviews. If you liked this review consider hitting the YES button.

Good Homeopathic product

Posted on Aug 23, 2013

7 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

This product has worked well for me and a friend I gave it to. It helped with dryness and redness. It works best for acute issues. If you have chronic dry eyes you need to look for the root cause. Some people have dry eyes because are lacking in Omega 3 oils. Try increasing your intake of fish oils and see if that solves or improves you issues. Go to my homepage to see my recommendation for a good value on a quality omega 3 fish oil. The reason I gave this 4 stars is because it only has a recommended 30 day shelf life after opening. For a 30 day supply it seems to be quite a bit of product. Most people will end up throwing much of it away. I wish they offered it in a smaller bottle for about half the price. For those who complained they could not control the dropper I would suggest they slightly squeeze the plastic neck to force the drop out. It may take a bit of practice but it is achievable.

Good prebiotic

Posted on Apr 17, 2013

7 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

NAG is a pre-biotic amoung other things. It is food for your gut flora to thrive on. For your gut flora to be healthy and repopulate, it needs food. This is how it helps your intestinal health. Take his on an empty stomach with your probiotic with plenty of water. I have found this product to work well for digestive health. FOS is another prebiotic that you can take to help with your gut flora. You can also eat Bananas, Leeks and Onions as they are all prebiotics. I have found it has helped with my digestive track function. This is also a precursor to Hylelonic(sp?) acid which is what helps to lubricates your joints. Many with arthritis take this. I don't have that condition so I cannot give a personal endoursement for that use, but I have read good things about it.

Good deal for the price.

This is a decent product as long as iherb is discounting it. It does have Astaxanthan which is a very powerful antioxidant. It is used in many eye formulas and is believed to be able to cross the blood brain barrier therefore providing good free radical clean up in the brain. Krill oil will also have some Astaxanthan in it as well. I prefer to use the Carlson's fish oil products as reviewed on my home page because you get more DHA and Carlson's goes to great lengths to make sure the oils are fresh and contaminant free. Carlson's does not have astaxanthan but I prefer to get the best overall fish oil for the omega 3 content and get my anti-oxidants elsewhere. Keep your fish oils refrigerated or in a cool location to prevent them from going rancid.

I used this product on an oil stain on a cotton shirt and it worked. I followed the simple instructions. It even has a brush built in to the top which makes it easier to work in to the stain. It is reasonably priced for what it is. If you found this review helpful, kindly visit my iHerb home page by clicking on my handle name above. There you can read my other value added reviews.

Very Good product

Posted on Apr 16, 2013

6 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

This is one product your doctor will never tell you about. It is very good for mild insomnia, nervousness or anxiety. L-Theanine is an amino acid and should be taken on an empty stomach. It is a GABA precursor. GABA is a calming neurotransmitter. You can try to take GABA directly but it does not work on most people because it does not cross the blood brain barrier very well. L- theanine does. This is a trial size and worth getting to see if it works for you. The recommended dose by most sources is 100-200mg. This is 150mg and right in the middle. You may find you need a little more or less. You may find you need a 100mg size capsule to accommodate such dosing. It is a very good natural alternative to sleep and anxiety medications.

2 stars becaue it has Carrageenan and Sodium coco-Sulfate

Posted on Jun 27, 2013

6 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I like the taste and the fact that it does not have fluoride. But it contains carrageenan and sodium coco-sulfate. Carageenan is a somewhat controversial substance made from seaweed. There is some research out saying that it is upsetting to the GI track. They use it as an inexpensive thickener. Sodium Coco Sulfate is just a highly, highly diluted form of Sodium laurel sulfate (SLS). If you're allergic to one, you're still allergic to the other. This is a trick the industry is using. So saying it is SLS free is a bit deceptive. So be aware. If you found this helpful, go to my homepage and read my other value added reviews. Peace and good health.

This is a weak product but it is a free product so I can't say I got ripped off. The scent disappeared in seconds. It is very watered down and likely make with cheap oils. My teachers have always said be ware of cheap essential oils. If they are not practitioner grade they will not have any therapeutic effect.

This is one of the best store bought gluten free baking mixes I have ever used. The pancakes came out great. I made them with unsweeted and unflavored almond milk, range free eggs and olive oil. I cooked them with raw organic coconut oil. Add some banana or blue berries and you will have a treat and still be gluten free. Folks, use real maple syrup and not the fake stuff with high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors. If you liked this review kindly indicate that by clicking on the YES button.
