The Answer to a Prayer!

All Lithium Orotate is not created equal. From my extensive research, the Advanced Research Brand (this one) and the Atrium Brand are the best out there. Advanced Research has 4.8 mg. per tablet while Atrium has 5 mg. per tablet. However, I feel that the Advanced Research brand is actually better in many ways because it doesn't have as many extra ingredients added to it AND it is the formula created by Dr. Neiper who was the expert on Lithium Orotate. All that said, I can tell you that this stuff has been an answer to a prayer LITERALLY. For my husband, after 5 years of trying to quit smoking at least 20 times, when he began dosing himself with the appropriate amount of Lithium Orotate, he was FINALLY able to quit tobacco. Proper dosing is absolutely essential as if you dose too low, you will not reap the benefits. The basics are 5 mg. per 50 lbs of body weight. However, if you are like my husband and weigh 190 AND you are trying to quit smoking and/or give up an addiction, you can increase that dose by one or two tablets a day. My husband used 6 a day, spread out and it helped like nothing else. I found out that tobacco has lithium in it and that's one of the reasons it's so sedating to smoke. Now he's down to five a day and it's been almost 21 days off cigarettes. I'm not saying it's been easy for him BUT he says that if he didn't have the Lithium Orotate, he doesn't know what he'd do. For myself, just three a day has made a world of difference to me. I am calmer, much more focused and feel a core sense of control over my emotions. When I do get upset, I don't linger on it and brood as I used to. The ONLY thing I'm doing differently is the Lithium Orotate so it's got to be making the difference in my moods. Dr. Shealy (alternative health doc) loves Lithium Orotate and says that we all need it to preserve brain function. He says you can take as much as 45 mg. a day but I think that'd be too much for most thinner people (if you're basing it on weight.) I simply can't say enough about this wonderful supplement and I will be purchasing more from iherb forever.

Source Naturals Sources from JAPAN!!!

I've always purchased Jarrow IP6 powder because they say on the label that it comes from Japan which is important. When Jarrow discontinued their IP6 powder due to slow sales of the item (this what Jarrow told me when I called), I called Source Naturals and they told me that they too get their IP6 from Japan. They should write it on their label or iherb should include that info in their description as it really MEANS something to those of us who depend on this product for the Big "C." My husband is taking it every morning on an empty stomach along with a separate dose of inositol at a ratio of 3 tsp. IP6 to 1/2 tsp. inositol (to mimic the more expensive patented "Cell Forte") to keep his thyroid tumor reduced and to stave off possible lung tumors due to years of smoking and environmental toxins he inhaled. The best part of all is that from the minute he started using IP6 (both the Jarrowa and Source Naturals' brand), he felt less depressed, more energetic, and his thinking improved. Must be the "B" vitamins. This is a great price for this product and one I will CONTINUE TO BUY FROM I.HERB!!!! KEEP IT IN STOCK PLEASE!!!!

My husband and I started YTE eight days ago at the recommended dose of two capsules, twice a day. I did A LOT of research on this product prior to ordering it because I did not want just another vitamin pill to pop. I learned that the loading dose (2 caps, 2 x's a day for 15 days) is the preferred continued dose in all the studies done in Norway. The bottle recommends that you cut it back to 2 caps once a day after the initial 15 days but I don't know if I will. So far, I can report that my mood is much calmer and that my muscle tone is really improved....and that's just after 8 days. I learned that YTE increases lean muscle mass and lowers cortisol (the stress hormone) and that's the main reason I'm taking it. I also know from reading that all the studies showed it took 3 to 12 weeks of continuous use before the amazing results revealed themselves. I intend to keep taking it at least that long to see the benefits. If they continue in the same fashion, I'll be buying it a long time. My husband is also taking it to lower cortisol levels but I think the positive sexual effects of the product are also becoming evident for him. It took about 6 days on the product but he says he feels kind of "frisky" now. Maybe it's because spring just sprung or maybe it's because YTE is a known libido enhancer. Either way, I'm not complaining. My only complaint (and this is NOT WITH I HERB) is that I wish the Doctor's Best company would NOT put the YTE in gelatin capsules. Why not vegetable glycerin? It's SO much easier to digest! To wrap up, if you want something that helps build lean muscle, reduce stressful cortisol hormone, improve your libido and maintain a more even tempered mood, give YTE at least a three month shot and see what it can do for you.

SO FAR, SO GREAT

My husband is the one on this product. He has battled nicotine addiction for over 40 years. He's tried everything, including other homeopathic remedies but ALWAYS started smoking again. He did not use the "cravings" remedy that Nutra Bio recommends because when he bought this, he didn't see that one on the shelf. He's been on this product for about three weeks now and has slipped back with one cigarette approximately three times in three weeks. However, knock wood, he's gone eight full days without a cigarette and that's a record. He says that this product not only reduces his desire for smoking but also has improved his sleep from the FIRST dose. He says it "eases the transition" between being a smoker and not being a smoker. He has less urges to pick up a cigarette. I'll be buying it from now on from iherb to save a few bucks. He wants to continue it for the full three months as he feels he is also benefitting in other ways (i.e., better sleep.)

SIMPLY THE BEST!!!

Discovered this special product in Kauai and I'm so glad i.herb carries it. Forget the acai capsules—you cannot get enough of them into you like you can with this easy power scoop. Also, Sambazon was the leader in acai products and patented their freeze dried process to insure freshness and viability. Hey, the only thing better than FRESH acai is THIS powder. (Sambazon also sells the fresh acai pulp in the refrigerator section of your local health food store.) You have to also refrigerate this powder after opening which tells you how fresh and vital it is. I use 1 1/2 scoops every morning in my coconut milk smoothie, along with raw cacao, maca powder, goji powder, guarana powder and camu-camu. POWER SMOOTHIE! In three weeks, I cannot believe how much fat I've burned off my lower belly. NOTHING HAS EVER DONE THIS BEFORE. I believe that acai works via the ketogenic pathway. I'm taking it for anti-cancer, weight control, sugar control and just because it ranks so high on the ORAC scale. LOVE IT!

Great alternative to Evening Primrose Oil

I purchased this product to see if it would help reduce the severe breast tenderness I was experiencing frequently before my period. I also wanted to see if it would help calm my moods prior to menstuation. I've only been taking it less than one month, but I did not get the breast tenderness at all! My mood was also much better. I realize this was only one month and not enough time to judge it. But I WILL keep taking it faithfully, one a day, every day from now on to see if it continues to be a benefit to me.

I'm glad you carry 50 mg. zinc citrate but I'd LOVE it if you could carry it in 100 mg. as so many natural heath protocols are now suggesting 100 mg. as the advisable dose. One less tablet to swallow. This stuff works great for sexual function.
