Best salt I ever tried!

Posted on Aug 17, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

Charcoal is very healing to detox chemicals and other environmental toxins, particularly if, like me, you have MCS. I take charcoal pills already so I was intrigued by this salt. This salt is full-bodied, tastes like delicious, natural sea salt but has an incredible yummy flavor. Not smoky or anything bad. The grinder has a tab cap which should make it easier to lift off but somehow mine gets stuck and is quite a challenge to remove. That's my only negative here, but not enough to warrant removing a star. The grinder words well. Now I use white pepper and black salt on my food, how cool is that?! Oh and PS: black salt has more than just the culinary use. Virtually undetectable and conspicuous use. Let's put it this way: annoying loud neighbors? Seems to work, enjoy! ;)

I don't know how good this is

They say Na-RALA is better than ALA but I don't get it. I take it when I have a bit of sugar, chocolate milk, so as to avoid crosslinkage of collagen and to detox from heavy metals at the same time. Not sure if it's better than my old ALA in fact I can't feel anything from either but I still look a good 15 years younger. Then again I take a truckload of supplements, most double as antioxidants, and I never ever ingest chemicals or use vital stuff that is packaged in plastics.

Smells incredible, moderate exfoliation, helps with dullness

Posted on Dec 04, 2012

6 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I finally bought this after years of having it in my wish list. It stings a little but my skin is not sensitive. The smell is incredible, like real lavender, I love it. However the first time I used it, it left a double hole in the center of my face! I guess it was an old acne mark that I never noticed. I panicked after that, I had 2 small holes center cheek below the eye. I quickly put some oil on it & the next day it had keratinized, meaning it was gone. This product removed the dull appearance of my skin and made it look radiant, glowing. Of course the effect is very temporary. I'm not sure how often this can be used but I love the packaging, very minimalistic white look perfect on my bathroom counter and I love the smell and the instant glow. So far as exfoliation, I'm not sure. It's not as instant to remove dryness as another brand I use but it seems more potent at removing surface layers. All and all it's a pleasant experience except for the skin holes and I will probably re-purchase when I run out, if only for the real lavender scent. It's a feel-good treatment.

To darken my hair

Posted on Nov 21, 2012

6 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

It seems to be working. I'm not taking any panthenol (B5) whatsoever with this. The first cap gave me a minor headache and so did the 2nd one that I took the next day. Since then, I use my NOW empty capsules and only have 1/2 a dose about 4 times per day. No more headaches from this. Unless it's my imagination, my hair does appear darker. My dry hair has also become softer and to my utter shock, a couple days ago I woke up missing the fine line under one of my eyes. (I am taking other skin/anti-wrinkle supplements but this seemed to do the trick along with another one I added the same week). I will update this if my hair color is restored. I do not like the high content of sterates in this item (double) & remove one star for that.

Turns water into liquid sewage appearance & tastes mediocre

Posted on Nov 07, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Really torn about this. First off the pouch is very small compared to most protein samples I've received from iHerb. Mixes well but it turned my water into an unappetizing murky greenish brown drink with bland taste to match. I expected the Madagascar vanilla to be fragrant and naturally sweet and take over and make this a delicious unsweetened protein drink. No such luck. Since I chose to make it with plain water and it's barely palatable, I then added organic powdered milk and the taste became even worse. I'm also not a fan of anything that contains the very questionable hemp, but at least there's no flaxseed to which I'm allergic or any of the cross-contaminated, GMO-tainted "organic" crops: namely soy or corn. OK I just did a search and found this article by Sally Fallon "Hemp: Not for Human Consumption". If what I'm now reading in further searches is accurate, it makes me wonder how this product is even legal but I support people's right to choose what they eat. For me, I'm now sorry I wasted perfectly good water on this! Giving it 3 stars so as not to change its current rating, for organic, for those who are into hemp (at least I have no side effects so far) and because there's really a lot worse out there.

I love its gorgeous lavender wrapper!

The chocolate is ok, sort of between milk and dark. I found it has a relaxing effect, mildly euphoric. I love the color of the wrapper and bought it again for that but unfortunately the 2 new bars arrived crushed. It's not the best chocolate but if I'm relaxed it gives me a strange happy feeling and if I'm not in a good place it relaxes me.

No major results here but no side effects either

Seems to work but not sure. I do need to supplement with extra B's for homocysteine balance as B complex doesn't do anything for me in that regards whereas individual B vites taken together work amazingly well. Back to this pill: I initially divided the cap in 2 but even now that I take a full one, I don't have any reaction to niacin, the potency is too low to be able to cause flushing from what I read, it's higher dosage that cause the problem, unless someone would have pre-existing conditions to make them super sensitive to it. I'm not sure I've seen any benefits, I might go back to Country Life brand because I read lots of negative reviews on here about Jarrow's B12 changed formula which led me to some searching and I found some questionable reports about Jarrow's owner and his being very rude to his customers. I'm not sure what to make of it and someone might not care but I found it disturbing enough not to want to have anything to do with the company. In the meantime, I've already switched my B12 from Jarrow to Solgar and that works much, much better so maybe these reviews (posted here on iHerb at Jarrow's B12) are right after all.

A bit too oily for me but goes on smooth and almost no flavor at all

Posted on Jun 19, 2013

6 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I'm not sure why iHerb switched the name from Madre Labs or Madre Bees to Sierra Bees so that's why the search turned up nothing. Anyway this is a pretty good lip balm. A bit too oily for my taste but less oily than Badger brand lip balms. It is also less overpowering in the cocoa butter smell so it's really pretty good. The reason why I'm giving 3 stars, besides the oily feel, is because, unlike my favorite lip balm, it doesn't do anything for chapped lips as, unlike that one, it does not exfoliate at all. I have MCS so the no scent/no taste works for me.

Does NOT have any significant orange flavor I can taste!

Posted on Oct 28, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Unfortunately each time I buy more than 1 new item from iHerb it turns out to be a dud, my bad! I bought at my local store Newman's Organics dark orange chocolate and it is heavenly, almost feels like those chocolate covered jelly oranges. Since I couldn't find it at iHerb and the weather had cooled down enough that I would not receive melted bars again, I purchased 3. Big mistake! For starters this tastes nothing at all like orange flavor unlike the other. The chewy/crunchy bits bother me: not only are they tasteless but they are NOT ORGANIC! And considering the recent scandal on the news about oranges being heavily sprayed not only with pesticides but with a very toxic fungicide, I won't be buying this again. However this was my fault for completely missing "peel", I just thought I was buying orange oil chocolate. My bad. But what was NOT my bad is iHerb's terrible packaging: I have been complaining to iHerb since January 2012 about chocolate being tossed in my packages without any bubble wrap any longer: it invariably arrives all crushed. And no, it does not taste the same. I don't know how else to get thru to iHerb on this. There is no way to contact the shipping department. My chocolate is invariably packed either under heavy cans or heavy jars! Either that or UPS plays soccer with my packages. Because of all this (and the hot weather) I've resumed shopping locally. That's 9 months of speaking up and not getting any positive resolution; in fact since I spoke up the packaging problem has become a lot worse with my coconut waters tossed upside down instead of right side up like I requested them many times: originally they were shipped sideways! I don't want to quit shopping iHerb but what else can I do when shipping has dropped to such poor packaging standards!?

Toxic heavy metal. Use this at your own risk. AMB brand makes carcinogenic products with toxic chemicals then markets them as "pure" and "natural". BUYER BEWARE!!!

WARNING: GMO ALERT!

Posted on Mar 22, 2012

6 people found the following review helpful

These are no longer non-GMO!! I spoke with Tim, quality control manager at Carlson's: he said they have not been GMO-free for Quite A While (assume several years since GMO soy planting started in the early 1990's) and he replied YES when I asked if I should assume this product contains the BT toxin that causes Morgellons!! He said they haven't tested for purity in a few years. I really appreciated his honesty considering the first person I spoke with (female) the previous week was trying to tell me they were purified to be GMO-free (This is impossible and no lab can guaranteed this! Watch the videos by Jeffrey M Smith or read his work.) Please note: Carlson's current label does NOT say non-GMO and the reason why I phoned them. I shipped these back to iHerb and got some IPP (ID Protected) lecithin instead which is guaranteed to be GMO-free. Buyer beware!

Best toothpowder ever! SLS?

Posted on Aug 07, 2010

5 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I love this one! Great anise taste; I use it about 7 times a day! My teeth look very clean. I have horrendous tooth pain from probably cavities and brushing with this doesn't hurt at all. My teeth feel really clean. The pain has subsided. My only concern is does this one contain SLS? All the other flavors list SLS except this one. My email to the company bounced. Did Eco-Dent forget to list SLS? This foams quite a bit with only a tiny bit of powder. A google search indicates that even "coconut derived" SLS is toxic. (All SLS is "coconut derived" with chemicals added.) I hope Eco-Dent will respond to this. Note: anise does NOT taste like licorice! Anise is light & sweet & very pleasant (& is sometimes used to flavor licorice).
