Great product for the important task

Posted on Feb 26, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

Great for getting rid of heavy metal toxins and most of all the bad calcium from the soft tissues causing stiffness and pain (it's called calcification, caused by wrong type of poorly-absorbed cheap mineral calcium like calcium carbonate etc). Taste is not too bad either. To de-calcify my body I'm also taking 1 tablespoon of MSM sulphur once or twice a day, mixed in water with Madre-C (natural vitamin c, which enhances absorption) and lime juice to cover the awful taste. Zeolite also great for taking a detox bath and feels very good in my hair afterwards :)

Couldn't finish the package, B12 as cyanocobalamin

Posted on Oct 10, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

I can't really tell if these helped so much with my health, since I'm taking so much other stuff as well to keep me going on strong. I didn't like the smell or taste of these in the first place, but only after I got headache and nausea associated with the taste I decided to quit using them. My girlfriend took them and also reported headache after quite a short time of use. I'm now using coenzymated caps by Country Life with no problems, and the B12 is in the form of dibencozide and methylcobalamin, which I trust much more than the suspiciously named and controversial cyanocobalamin found on B-50 product, probably because it's 100 times cheaper from of B12.

Rancid taste so it's unusable

Terrible taste, like vomit, possibly the oil in the product gone bad. No refund for the short date items, remember.

Yeah, does exactly what it promises. For intense use you can take 4 caps which delivers almost a gram of ginkgo extract. And other brands claim that 120 mg is a lot ... well it's not.

Purchased at iHerb

Amazon multi-herb tincture based on the bark extract of the enormous 30 meters high Chuchuhuasi tree. It's pain and inflammation relieving, anti-cancer, immune-enhacing, digestion-stimulating, muscle-relaxing, libido and adrenals supporting qualities are rounded up with locally-found daisy-family member Feverfew, a migraine and arthritis easing, infection-based fever relieving, blood vessel toning flower. Large woody vine Cat's Claw supports with similar actions plus cleansing, detoxifying, cell-protecting, free-radical fighting and virus-killing effects. Gorgeous-looking foxglove-related Nucño Pichana works for upper respiratory ailments, biliary colic, congestion and menstrual disorders. It also acts as an analgesic for swelling, aches and pains and an antispasmodic. Rain Tree's big bulk bag of Chuchuhuasi powder has been out of stock of iHerb for months, with no sign of restocking, so these may be the last chances to try this herbal remedy for this time around.

These Amazonian bark powders hold great wonders

From rainforest-database "In the Amazon, the Indians of the Rio Pastaza consider bobinsana to be a stimulant. They prepare a decoction of the roots to take for strength and energy. The Shipibo-Conibo Indians in the Ucayali area of Peru call the tree semein and prepare a bark tincture for rheumatism, arthritis, colds, uterine disorders, and edema (or water retention). The indigenous people and tribes in the Madre de Dios region of the Peruvian Amazon prepare a bark tincture (with aguardiente) for bone pain, arthritis, rheumatism, and colds. They also grate the bark into baths to increase resistance to sickness and to resist the cold and chills. Bobinsana is also used by the Indians as an adjunctive ingredient in various ayahuasca recipes in the Amazon. Ayahuasca is a phytochemically-rich combination of plants brewed by Indian shamans to connect to the spirit world. Through a series of reactions among chemicals from several plants working together, a hallucinogenic plant extract is created. While bobinsana is not itself a hallucinogen, it is considered a "plant teacher" and is sometimes added to ayahuasca recipes to help the shamans connect to and learn from the plants on a spiritual level. In Peruvian herbal medicine systems a decoction of the bark is prepared and it is considered to be anti-rheumatic, contraceptive, tonic, stimulant, and depurative. A bark decoction is also used for dyspnea (shortness of breath). A decoction of the roots is recommended for uterine cancer and as a depurative (blood cleanser) as well. A decoction of the entire plant (leaves, stem, twigs, flowers) is prepared as a decoction as a general energizing tonic."

Great nutrient-rich protein powder full of goodies

Posted on Oct 14, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Feels and tastes great with raw milk from the local farm and some stevia. I bought this for my partner and she liked it immediately. I went through the ingredients list and didn't catch anything alarming - mostly very good stuff and even the B-12 is as safe methylcobalamin and not as 100 times cheaper and quite controversial cyanocobalamin. Skipping the childish taste issues, my only remaining concern was about pea protein isolate, knowing that soy and whey protein isolates are unsafe products that can mess up my stomach and cause all kinds of other problems like greatly increase urinary calcium loss. After some googling I figured about that nobody knows for sure and my body will surely complain if the isolated pea protein starts to harm me in some way. So until I get some unpleasant symptoms that can't be overlooked anymore, I will keep on enjoying this with all it's delicious crunchy bits that come with the shake.

Miracle root for cheap price

Posted on Oct 24, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I'm a newbie for this adaptogenic anti-rheumatic tonic demulcent expectorant herbal remedy, so I rely on the information I've found at solomonsseal.wordpress.com/2011/02/14/solomons-seal-tea-healing-benefits/ "Solomon’s Seal tea, in particular, makes the best use of the plant’s excellent demulcent qualities (also referred to as mucilaginous or muco-protective). Mucilage is a polysaccharide substance obtained from the roots or seeds of a plant. A mucilaginous or demulcent herb is viscous and gelatinous, and thus protective and soothing to the mucus membranes and other irritated or inflamed internal tissues of the body. Solomon’s Seal, taken as a tea, soothes irritation in the digestive tract, lungs, throat, vagina, and uterus. On the other hand, the tincture is generally superior to the tea for treating sports and repetitive use injuries, and injuries involving tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, attachments, cartilage, and bones. In fact, the tincture works to strengthen the entire muscular-skeletal system. However, Solomon’s Seal tincture is generally less effective than the tea in preserving the soothing demulcent quality discussed above. Use either the tea or tincture to speed recovery after surgery or the setting of a bone, to rebuild strength and well-being after a fever or the flu, or to aid in keeping a chiropractic adjustment in place."

Similar to Sunwarrior protein but with more chalky texture

Posted on Aug 26, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Well-produced protein for a nice price, but the texture makes this a bit too bland to enjoy with water alone. I still have to check out how it goes down with raw milk. For now I'm having a break from this and gave it to a friend while trying out the latest chocolate flavoured raw protein by Garden of Life myself.

Not chemical free

Posted on Jun 28, 2011

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Despite describing itself natural sunscreen, there's a few toxic chemical ingredients used in the formula. After learning this I can't really use the cream anymore, and remember getting some irritation reactions especially when applied to the face. Better go with Aubrey Organics or Badger sunscreens since they have much better safety scores.

Very bad for my face

Posted on Sep 15, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

It made my face red and burning all over, still feeling the nastiness after 15 minutes of washing it away and applying BeeCeuticals Queen Bee for a Day Cream to cover the damage done. Terrible stuff indeed, but I'm not surprised since Avalon Organics is just one of 50 high-selling brands by the notorious Hein Celestial Group, a big player in the business partly owned by the multi-national ketchup giant Heinz. Their other avoidable brands include chemically-loaded Jason's and Alba Botanica cosmetics, Soy/Rice/Almond Dream milks (go find and get some real nutritious raw milk instead of sipping up brain-damaging unfermeted soy drinks) and Celestial Seasongins teas which are quite boring and ineffective, and nothing special beyond their artwork-centered marketing image.
