Good nutrition but too sweet (and too many carbs) for me

Posted on Jun 13, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

Good nutrition/ingredients and non-GMO also chocolatey enough BUT - too sweet for me - too sweet taste - too many carbs (I feel it affects my blood sugar levels) - expensive

Great low dosage but cannot use it

Posted on Jun 11, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

Purchased because I was looking for a low dosage of Betain HCI plus someone mentioned "easy to swallow". Really? I just looked at the rough edges of thenot-that-small tablet and though "there is no way I can swallow this stuff". I am scared of choking on it. So it won't get used. Why cannot the tablet be smaller and have smooth edges? Even better... a capsule? And to those that can swallow that easily: lucky you!

I wish they removed xylitol and magnesium stearate

Posted on May 31, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

Complaints: - contains xylitol - contains magnesium stearate - contains a high amount of vitamin K2 for me (I would prefer less, 45mg) My favourite was the 1,000 IU version, now discontinued. GOOD STUFF: However, now that I HAVE to take 5000 IU, I can take one 3 days a week. I do know they effectively raise my vitamin D levels, as they were in the optimal range when my doctor tested me last time (in spring). She was taken aback as she had never seen anyone with optimal vitamin D levels in her life!

Probably good for me but disgusting taste and hard to swallow tablet

Posted on Apr 28, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

I don't like tablets but this product came highly recommended, so I thought I'd try it anyway. * Good points: gentle on the stomach, no repeating/hurting stomach * Bad points: a)tablet - hard to swallow for some b) taste - It tastes rank if (like me) you have to chew it because you cannot swallow it whole. * Will try taking with a smoothie and will update this review later on with results.

Taste: ok, not great - May need to be refrigerated or finished quickly after opening

First time I've purchased this: I don't care much about the taste. It is ok, mind you, and healthier than the alternatives, hence my purchase. PROBLEM: Some white ball-shaped items have formed on top (as if it were mould, not sure what it is) and I am unsure if I should bin the item.

Natrol won't reply to my query

Purchased at iHerb

I have written to Natrol twice asking whether this product contains GMO (for instance, the vitamin C part). No reply yet. I am suspicious of companies that do not take the time to reply to customer queries.

Great... got rid of my ear infection !!!

Posted on Feb 16, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

Had excruciating pain in the left side of my face (teeth, scalp around my left ear, left side of tongue, pain swallowing or chewing). I nearly called for medical emergency help. Then I noticed the bottle of Christopher's Oil of Garlic Extract on my table. It says expiry: Feb 2014. It was the end of Jan 14, so I thought "why not give it a try?". I put 6 drops in each ear (less affected first) and slept on it. Pain improved immediately. Used for a week as indicated. VERY PLEASED. Next I may try it internally, though not sure how. Perhaps in my salad dressing?

Will no longer buy due to eccipients

Rice flour, magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and silica. Vegetable source or not, I don't want magnesium stearate or any other flow agents in my supplements. Now Foods: will you listen at last?

Why do they have to use: rice powder, magnesium stearate (vegetable source), silicon dioxide ? I want none of this garbage in my supplements. If this the best the doctor can do... we are in trouble

Tastes great

Posted on Feb 09, 2014

Love this maca powder. Tastes great with anything, in my smoothies, raw puddings, anything at all. Will definitely purchase again. Just wonder why the nutritional info does not include calories per serving size...

Love it. Why discontinued?

Posted on Feb 07, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

Yet another great product which I really found useful for anxiety and nerve pain but inexplicably becomes discontinued... It is still available elsewhere so I wish iherb were continuing to stock it.

Nice and healthy

If you are after a sweet chocolate drink full of sugar, go elsewhere. This is non-alkalized cocoa (ie relatively bitter) but that is why it's healthier, it has more antioxidants that way. If you like dark chocolate or raw cacao, you will probably like this. You can always sweeten with a little stevia and/or cinnamon powder if you want. Cordyceps and reishi will also support your health. All in a chocolatey taste, great in the winter. Could not ask for more... actually, I could, it could be slightly cheaper :-)
