Interesting effects...

Posted on Feb 18, 2013

12 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Purchased these for maintenance of general well-being. An unexpected (but welcome!) effect is that my scalp feels healthier and my hair feels & looks thicker (I have a buzz cut, but still, it feels like it is growing thicker, somehow!) It's important to take tocotrienols apart from any additional high-dose vitamin E supplements, as alpha-tocopherol will compete with and reduce the absorption of the tocotrienols. I take a low-dose, broad-spectrum tocopherol supplement (contains mostly gamma-, a touch of alpha-, and smidgens of beta- and delta- tocopherols) at breakfast. With an evening meal, I take the tocotrienols.

Dose of resveratrol

Posted on Feb 18, 2013

4 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Just a comment to those who believe that the dose of resveratrol in this product (20mg) is too low. Recent studies do show that supposedly "small" doses of resveratrol (from 8mg to 40mg) can have measurable, beneficial effects in humans (e.g., anti-inflammatory effects, antioxidant effects, etc). In one recent clinical trial, 8mg to 16mg of resveratrol/day was found to increase adiponectin and lower inflammatory markers in men. Over an extended period of time, this could result in lower risk for cardiovascular disease. In another study, healthy people were given 40mg/ day resveratrol; it was found that various indices of oxidative and inflammatory stress were significantly improved. No one knows the minimum effective dose for resveratrol. No one has proven that taking 250-500mg/ day is better than taking 20mg a day. Some people choose to take massive (500mg) doses. I am more cautious, and prefer to take a small, regular dose of around 20-40mg/ day. Therefore, for me, the amount of resveratrol in this Jarrow formula is just right.

Convenient

Posted on Jan 22, 2013

I think this is an improvement over the older version (Booster softgels). I like the fact that this contains broad-spectrum tocopherols (plenty of gamma-tocopherol, just a small amount of alpha-tocopherol). I REALLY like the fact it no longer contains tocotrienols. I prefer to take my tocotrienols and tocopherols 8 hours apart (based on findings that alpha-tocopherol blocks the absorption of tocotrienols, & also interferes with their cholesterol lowering and anti-cancer activities in the body). So I take this with a morning meal; and a tocotrienol supplement with an evening meal. The addition of a solid dose of K2 is a convenience (one less supplement to take), as is the presence of lutein and lycopene. Not sure why this contains gingko - would prefer Zeaxanthin and more lutein instead. Overall, this is a great companion to a multi-vitamin/mineral base.

Great taste!

This has an unusual, subtle taste - I like it! It doesn't lather up with lots of foam like most commercial toothpastes - but that's no matter. Used in combination with the Oral Rinse, this gives a *remarkably* clean feeling mouth, with the clean feeling lasting most of the day. I suspect that long term use of this would reduce cavities, because it's so effective at reducing the formation of plaque/ gunk on your teeth (although Therabreath doesn't make any claims along these lines).

Excellent multi!

Purchased at iHerb

This is a nicely designed multi. Trace minerals are provided as picolinates - which are better absorbed than so called "chelates". The B vitamins are provided, where possible, in their active or naturally occurring forms. (E.g., folic acid is provided methylfolate). This provides decent amounts of magnesium & Vitamin D.

Ultra clean mouth!

Posted on Jan 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I don't get much bad breath, but decided to try this out of curiosity any way. It gives a long-lasting, ultra clean sensation to teeth and mouth. I'd imagine that long term use will reduce cavities. I prefer this - by far - to Listerine or other mainstream mouth washes. I think this product is actually more effective at killing oral bacteria than Listerine. The proof is in the results - when I am using this, I just don't get that yucky, sticky feeling on my teeth after eating something sweet.

Excellent!

Purchased at iHerb

This is an excellent product. Beware: it *does* taste like dish water. But, you're not buying this for the taste! It *thoroughly* cleans your mouth & throat - and leaves your mouth with a long-lasting clean feeling. It's far, far better than mainstream rinses like Listerine. (Note: I haven't used it long enough to comment on the gum-health aspects of the product - will update here when I've used this for a while).

Good product - but tablets ARE difficult to swallow!

Posted on Feb 10, 2013

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

The active ingredients in this product - magnesium glycinate (& lysinate) - are fine. The price is great. My only criticism... the tablets are an odd shape with square edges, and the coating is rough not smooth... this means that even though the tablets are not huge, they can be difficult to swallow. Sometimes the only way I can get these down is by swallowing them with a tablespoon of yoghurt. I think Dr's Best needs to retool the tablet mold used for this product - maybe come up with a shape that is smooth and rounded, and perhaps use a smooth coating. Just a thought.

Essential!

Posted on Feb 10, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I find that around 5000 IU/ day of Vit. D gives me decent serum levels. Everyone is different though - so get your serum levels tested if you can. You might be surprised at the results, I know I was (much lower than I expected)!

REALLY IS FRAGRANCE FREE!

Posted on Jan 21, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

This product is the best. In a world where it is almost impossible to find a fragrance-free hair gel, this product is worth it's weight in gold! It has no fragrance, at all. It costs next to nothing and lasts forever.

This has an unusual, subtle taste - I like it! It doesn't lather up like most commercial toothpastes - but no matter. Used in combination with the Oral Rinse, this gives an *incredibly* clean feeling mouth, with the clean feeling lasting most of the day.

Really love this

Posted on Jan 22, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

This is a multi designed to provide nutritional support for people who have had weight loss surgery. It could also be used by those who are on diets, to ensure a balanced intake of nutrients is maintained. It provides a complete, balanced spectrum of vitamins and minerals. Vital trace minerals are provided as metal picolinates, which are easily absorbed. The B vitamins are provided, where possible, in "active" forms, e.g., folic acid is provided as methyl-folate. I really like this product. I've been using it during my own weight loss journey. (It could be my imagination, but I feel like my appetite is somewhat reduced when I'm taking 4 of these a day. Not sure how that could be - it doesn't seem to contain ingredients known for appetite suppression.) This is a thoughtfully designed product, up to the usual Thorne standards.
