toxic

Purchased at iHerb

I tried this because it was suggested it was a not toxic product, safe adn easy to use. It was simple, mixing from two bottles and then applying direct. The first complaint I have is colour. I bought something described as 'dark blonde'. where I come from my hair is now an attractive mid-brown. Not a big problem, but a silly error and no need for it. It does mean that regrowth to my natural dark blonde will be annoyingly visible. My biggest complaint is the problem of toxicity. Whatever it is that this product contains made me pretty sick. I washed my hair for three days after use, adding bi-card to the shampoo and cider vinegar as a final rinse. After that the irritation stopped, but the nausea took a couple more days. For anyone who is genuinely sensitve to unexpected chemicals this product should be avoided. It may be okay for those who are simply trying to reduce their overall exposure. In future I will stick to plain henna

Lovely

Rose hip oil is a really good skin treatment and these little tubes are a good way to get it. I wondered if the pump action would result in a lot of waste, but on checking I found there was little left once the pump stopped delivering. It is a nice quality of oil and happily organic. I have found them a good little gift too as they are so inexpensive. Each bottle lasts me about 6 weeks; I use only two dollops each night.

so good

I accidently bought Ubiquinone recently instead of this Ubiquinol. I am over 60 and live with chronic illness. It became very clear I need the active Ubiquinol form to get any benefit. For me taking this is like simply feeling a little stronger each day. I am also able to tolerate a higher dose of B12 which is helping with some neurological symptoms. I cannot take this in the evening as it will keep me awake through the night. It seems to be utilised very quickly and gives me a benefit throughout the day Easy to swallow this is great for me. I have bought some of the 300mg product which I will try with caution at some time. For now the energy boost from this is good and safe.

good for me

This has been an excellent product for me. I have long term ME and am searching for ways to build my strength. This has helped significantly. It is like an energy pill in the morning. It allows me to take a higher dose of B12 as well. I can sometimes take 200mg but it seems too much for every day. maybe i will find that changes. these have been another step towards recovery for me. I had taken ubiquinone for some years but it had no discernible benefit. Given my age and illness this is not surprising. this and magnesium {Thompsons Ultra Magnesium which I wish iherb would stock} and B12 have been the most useful nutrients for me. i have found that I cannot take these in the evening. They are a stimulant for me and I don't sleep if I take them at night. But as morning boost they are wonderful and as a result I am able to begin building some of my wasted muscle tissue. and so glad they are soy free .

excellent

I have used these for a while now and find them effective and easy to use. It takes a little self monitoring to dissolve these slowly rather than chew or whatever. But they deliver a useful dose of B12 and have freed me from the need for injections. I had thought these were inappropriate for me at night, as they are for some. I need to re-evaluate that idea as I check my different supplements. In any event I have no trouble taking a double dose in the morning. I am finding a noticeable tingling along my spine as nerves heal. It can be painful if done too fast so I recommend caution in using these, maybe starting with the lower dose, while one discovers the level that suits.

useful

These have been very useful as I have a strong reaction to Vit D. using these drops is the simplest way for me to carefully titrate my dosage to avoid nasty moments.

Useful and affordable

I have found this a good way to get a basic vitamin C dose every day. I add a little sodium bicarbonate to reduce the acidity. The only trap is that it can fizz a lot so use a little water in the glass until the reaction is over, then fill to drink. tastes fine.

Okay

I am aware of the doubts about whether or not this product is actually liposomal in nature. I am not qualified to pronounce on that and it remains a concern. [and bluntly a simple assertion from Mercola to 'trust us, we're good' doesn't work] however as a simple Vit C product they are okay. I will be glad to see some good scientific basis for believing they are truly liposomal and hence better utilised in my body.

a helpful extra

I have been using a live form of probiotic [VSL] which I have sourced in Australia where I live. It has been effective but very expensive and a fuss to acquire given its sensitivity. This was a trial to see if a stabilised version would help. They do seem to have some effect, but are really not good enough for constant use. I can see them as helpful for emergency times or for travel when live probiotics are not possible to manage. But they do not work for me as a sole source. So good to have on hand.
