carcinogenic smell? nail polish?

Posted on Apr 01, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

I'm not going to buy these any more (they had been my staple for several years). This is the second time i got a whiff or a taste at times of a drop or two of gasoline? nail polish? or something carcinogenic. (I'm not an organic chemist, can't identify it). I'm switching to Jarrow ESP or whatever it is.

contains SORBITOL

Posted on Apr 02, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I happily used this for years. But now they've added SORBITOL! Why? What a stupid thing to do--- these are not chewables like candy! I just swallow them, i don't notice the taste! I'm suspicious that the sorbitol may have caused a bit of hand arthritis; I stopped taking these pills and the arthritis has gone. (It could have been 2 other new pills).

capsule has chemical smell

Posted on Sep 24, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

I can't eat these. I took one, that's enough. Why does the capsule have a chemical smell? I can't stand it when capsules smell bad. Is it the propolis itself that smells? Would someone tell me? Propolis is resin from evergreen trees. Why didn't they warn me and explain?

contains sodium lauryl sulfate

Posted on Nov 29, 2011

Quote from Dr Mercola:Sodium lauryl sulfate is a surfactant, detergent and emulsifier used in thousands of cosmetic products, as well as in industrial cleaners. Present in nearly all shampoos, toothpastes, body washes and cleansers, liquid hand soaps, laundry detergents and bath oils and bath salts. Although SLS originates from coconuts, the manufacturing process results in SLES/SLS being contaminated with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogenic byproduct. SLS is the sodium salt of lauryl sulfate, and is rated by the Environmental Working Group's (EWG) Skin Deep Cosmetics Database as a "moderate hazard." SLS breaks down the skin's moisture barrier, easily penetrates the skin, and allows other chemicals to penetrate by increasing skin permeability by approximately 100-fold. Combined with other chemicals, SLS becomes a "nitrosamine", a potent class of carcinogen. Research studies have linked SLS to skin and eye irritation, organ toxicity, reproductive and developmental toxicity, endocrine disruption, neurotoxicity, cellular changes, possible mutations and cancer

i prefer Source Naturals brand

Posted on Jul 18, 2009

Purchased at iHerb

I took 2 1/2 bottles of this brand, then switched back to Source Naturals Magnesium Malate. Now brand gave me constipation every time, because it contains a significant amount of calcium carbonate; i forget how much, i think she said 150 mg , which is NOT ON THE LABEL. It was screwing up my minerals balance. That much calcium has to be on the LABEL.

i want the plain kind! no extras!

Posted on Jun 05, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

I don't want the echinacea (immune-booster), causes me inflammation. The artemesia annua that they added is useless, because it's an oxidant, only works as an oxidant on empty stomach, and i take these pills with anti-oxidants and food!
