Fantastic product, great company...

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

This is a great organic mushroom blend for modulation of immunity response. What does that mean? This is not simply an immune system stimulant; rather, mushrooms appear to have the power to normalize immune system responses. For example, you want your immune system to attack foreign bugs and cancer cells, but you do not want an immune system so heightened that it attacks your own body, causing allergies. This product may be effective toward such a general end. My only gripe, deducting the one star, is the lack of information available here and on Fungi.com regarding the heat activation methods used. I have called Fungi Perfecti and was given a satisfactory response (they are, indeed, heat activated and thus bioavailable), but this is not reflected as well in information available online and on the product itself. All in all, fantastic product. Highly recommended. Check out my profile page for a discount code!

MK-7 is great...

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I am thoroughly impressed with performance of MK-7 for bone and heart health and emerging studies that seem to indicate myriad health benefits associated with the intake thereof. My only star reserved is for Jarrow, which is very close-lipped on information about its products. Is this non-GMO? It was once billed as such on its label, but no more, and they refuse to indicate without obfuscation. This is disappointing. If you want more assurance on that front, best to stick with MenaQ7, which is produced in Norway and non-GMO. Check out my profile page for a discount code!

Not perfect, but one of the better strains and packaging...

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

Great strain with some research behind it, and it does appear to do as it claims. Also, the amount per capsule (10 billion) is impressive and above and beyond most of the near-useless probiotics on the market. Furthermore, the packing used in this product is ideal: it is shelf stable and blister-packed for easy travel. Identical packaging to Culturelle, for those familiar with that product.

Worked alright...

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

Solid product formulation from a reliable company. Packaging is fantastic and information abundant both on here and on Gaia's website. Also, unlike many other herbal complexes, including some other ones made by Gaia Herbs, this product lists the individual amounts of each constituent ingredient. Just be sure to follow the instructions, and it would be a good idea to consult a doctor if you are having serious issues you believe may be linked to thryoid issues. And at the end of the day, the key to thyroid improvement is iodine intake. Either incorporate more sea vegetables (nori, kelp, etc) and egg yolks into your diet, or take a multivitamin that contains at least 75 mcg of Iodine. Check out my profile page for a discount code!

Cost effective

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

Probably not a dose that will do wonders for many people, but with the cost as high as it has been for Pcynogenol over the years, this formulation has its place in the mix. Check out my profile page for a discount code!

Seems to be a good formulation...

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

This Jarrow formulation certainly appears to be one of the better CoQ10 formulations out there, especially in this price point. Stick with the patented formulations for safety reasons. While that may not always pan out and is a bit cynical, the risk of ineffective or worse, dangerous off-brand formulations of CoQ10 is simply not worth it.

Great value for decent CoQ10!

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

COQ10 has a lot of emerging research that should be read before use. This formulation seems to be pretty effective, and the capsules are really, really tiny for even the most discerning of people. However, the absorption probably isn't as effective as softgel creations, which Jarrow also distributes. Check out my profile page for a discount code!

Very strong flavoring...

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

NOW makes good products, and the Vitamin C content is no doubt legit; however, the Orange flavor I found to be a bit strong. Natural Factors, for example, makes far more subtle chewables insofar as flavor is concerned. NOW should tone this down a bit. Otherwise, nothing wrong with the product as far as its effects are concerned. Great value. Check out my profile page for a discount code!

Do your research...

This may be a good alternative for vegans, but whether or not this organism is "natural" is another discussion. It may be genetically modified. Research this carefully, and be aware of the waxing and waning of its (life's DHA) popularity over the last several years. Check out my profile page for a discount code!

Good on paper...

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

On the face of it, the supplement is great: NOW Foods is one of the best in the business, and multi-strain probiotics have decent research behind them. On the downside, the specific strains of each type are not disclosed, and FOS is added. This is a beneficial prebiotic for many people, but for some people this causes unwanted GI distress (mostly bloating). Check out my profile page for a discount code!

Not bad, but do your research!

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

Make sure you check the research on this supplement. I did personally experience a memory boost and some noticeable improvement in exercise performance, but I also experienced a potential side effect of fatigue after continued daily use over the span of roughly 3 months. I attribute this to the potential thyroid hormone blocking properties of this supplement. So, while it works, be careful! Do your homework, and check with your doctor.

Hard to say if these work...

Posted on Apr 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I tried these for a little while and cannot honestly determine their effectiveness. However, New Chapter is reputable, and most of the ingredients are backed by emerging science and years of use in ancient societies. Check out my profile page for a discount code!
