Great for skin tags

Posted on Dec 16, 2010

10 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I used to have the same skin tags reappear under my arm but a week of this salve went to the root and they never came back. I've been skin-tag free for over 3 years. It's no hype when they say it goes deep into the tissue. I even feel calmer - probably since Goldenseal is somewhat calming when I take it orally. It also worked on a small discolored patch on my nose (too much sun and getting old) It took longer, but this salve removed it and now there's completely normal skin in its place. I was amazed. I now use it on any skin condition, even bug bites. I can't recommend it highly enough.

I noticed a sense of well being, a lightness, and clarity of mind. Not sure why I bought it but it's a great anti-depressant.

Soothing

Purchased at iHerb

Many of the herbs in this product are "cooling" and diuretic. I was pleased to find a formula with herbs like yellow dock, burdock, red clover, and dandelion - all recommended to me. Nettle, alone, is great for allergies and skin. There's more to this mix than just burdock and red clover. These herbs sound common but I've used every one by itself with benefit. I use this formula in place of a diuretic tea and find it calming overall, in a subtle way. No unwelcome side effects for me.

Gentle and Works

My liver panel is normal after years of periodic alcohol abuse. Before I started taking this product about six years ago, my liver panel was always abnormal. This formula doesn't upset the stomach like other milk thistle products but 2 or 3 caps at once will sometimes make me jittery. Still trying to quit drinking but plan to continue taking Silymarin.

Upset Stomach

Posted on Sep 19, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I've taken it on an empty stomach and with food and the result is the same: upset stomach later, sometimes the next day. Add to that cold sweats, queasiness, and fitful sleep. At first I wasn't sure it was the serrapeptase but again and again it only happens after I take it. I've tried 1-4 caps at a time but as little as one cap causes these symptoms. This morning I took one cap along with nattokinese (which I've taken for over a year so I can exclude that) and was back in bed for a fitful nap that lasted 4 hours. I was abnormally tired and my stomach hurt. In fact, I've taken more anti-acid stomach remedies in the last month of use than in the previous year. Stranger yet, a few days ago after taking this, my stomach hurt well into the next day until I had a bowel movement. After that, it was like the clouds lifted and the clammy, queasy feeling and upset stomach vanished. So it seemed to have this effect well down the digestive tract. I bought this to replace ibuprofen and thought it might help with overall health as reported in the many glowing reviews. I haven't experienced less pain or any noticable benefits. Yet I'm willing to say the jury is out and the negative symptoms, a "healing crisis" if something positive happens. I'm still trying to be optimistic. I'll amend this review if I notice postive results or find a way to take it without the upset. I'm a healthnut with a strong stomach who's popped a lot of supplements and rarely have digestive problems like this.

Very Calming

Purchased at iHerb

I noticed an immediate sense of relief and calm. I've been able to cut back on anxiety medications. This is the best magnesium supplement I've taken yet. Citrate seems to be the most assimliable, fast-acting, form of Mg.

Good Burn, no Stomach Upset

Posted on Dec 27, 2011

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I was pleasantly surprised that this niacin doesn't cause even a hint of stomach distress. Sometimes I feel the flush just minutes after taking, so I know it's working. Other times I feel a little flush hours later. Only side effect is blurry vision which isn't an issue if taken at night.

May cause Acid Reflux

Posted on Nov 29, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I wanted to like this Natural Factors supplement and tried it several times over a month. At a minimum I would start burping up pepperment and menthol within a half hour, (forget the enteric coating) at worse, I'd have serious acid reflux for a couple days, whereas normally I go years between mild flare-ups. I thought it would help with bloating and gas but it didn't do much in that department either. I've experimented with supplements for years and can usually handle anything. I was also surprised at how heating this is - I'd lay awake several hours later sweating, my heart pounding. I could feel the heat throughout my body. After another round of expensive otc acid reflux remedies, I finally threw the rest of it out. I'll look elsewhere if I want the heebie jeebies.

Lower Cholesterol

Posted on Nov 06, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

I've been taking this for years and have seen much lower cholesterol readings when I take at least 3-5 caps per day. ( cholesterol went from 250 to 204 in 3 weeks) There's no stomach upset I have with other brands. If I take 6-9 caps in one day, I notice some agitation (heebie jeebies) but that's to be expected with high doses. Works best when taken with a meal that already contains some fat or oil.

This is the only health bar visiting grandkids will eat. Not sure about soy so I keep looking for alternatives but this one continues to be their favorite.
