NO ENTERIC COATING AND NO ADDED MINERALS**

Posted on Jun 02, 2013

7 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Initially, I used SerraGold, but it has a mineral blend with it. The manufacturer of SerraGold doesn't tell you what minerals are in the blend or in what amounts, just that the minerals are added to prevent destruction of the enzyme in the stomach and to alleviate the need for an enteric coating. If you take any other supplements or a multivitamin/mineral it would definitely be useful to know what minerals are in this product. Also, there was definitely an aftertaste and my perspiration developed a peculiar odor. I love serrapeptase and Serretia is a great product. This is one product I would always include in my regimen. It helps to prevent blood clots and keeps the circulation moving smoother. Also it works on scar tissue and any other "dead" material in the body. I have a scar on my arm from a cyst removal a few years ago. There were lumps of scar tissue on either side of the incision mark. This is almost completely flat after about 5 weeks of taking serrapeptase. I know it also works inside the body too. I have noticed much more flexibility in my neck and back. If you take coumadin or any other blood thinner, you should talk to your doctor before taking this supplement. The main drawback to this brand is the cost. It is more expensive than SerraGold, but has no unknown ingredients in it. It digests and absorbs well.

Hypothyroid and exhausted **

Posted on Jun 02, 2013

7 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I have been diagnosed as hypothyroid and take medication. However, many of my symptoms have not gone away. I have just recently started taking Thyrocsin. My hair loss seems to have slowed down. I don't know if this is part of the regular hair cycle or if it is the supplement. I definitely feel less brain fog. Other symptoms are still present. I will update when I have taken it longer. UPDATE: Upgraded to 4 stars. I have been taking Thyrocsin longer now and my fatigue has noticeably lessened and my sleep has improved. I still have muscle aches and pains, but the ringing in my ears has improved tremendously-an unexpected bonus!! I used to use Thyroid Support from Gaia Herbs, but this product seems to do more to help my symptoms. 12/03/12 UPDATE: My muscle aches are starting to subside and I feel much more mobile. I also take liquid kelp every other day. My eyebrows are starting to grow back in and I am able to exercise more often without feeling totally exhausted!!

Helps with metabolism and weight loss!

Posted on Jun 02, 2013

6 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I have read many articles and a few diet/nutrition books that discuss the benefits of this extract for diet and metabolism. Dr. Oz also did a trial with women using coffee bean extract for 2 weeks compared with a placebo group. The group taking the extract consistently lost more weight and felt less hunger/cravings. Oz also discussed other studies and trials using coffee bean extract. However, it is important to make sure that the product you use has at least 45% chlorogenic acid. This formula has 50%. I have used it, but you neeed to take it 30 minutes before your meal and sometimes this is difficult for me to manage/remember. However, it does not make me jittery or cause insomnia, so I am willing to keep trying.

effective and no refrigeration

Posted on Jun 02, 2013

5 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I normally use a product that requires refrigeration. I have been very satisfied with it. However, I have been reading that it is a good idea to take a variety of probiotics. So, I decided to try this particular brand. I believe it works quite well. The fact that you don't need to refrigerate it is very convenient. If I travel or wish to take my supplement at different times, I can carry it with me without any problems. I plan on ordering a full-size bottle when my current probiotic is gone. If you travel or carry supplements with you, this is a good brand to use.

helps with mood and hormonese

Posted on Jun 02, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I believe this is helping me to sleep better at night. It doesn't make me sleepy and, as a matter of fact, I usually take it at dinner--but I think I get less tense. Whatever it is doing, I can get to sleep faster at night, feel less anxious, and oddly enough, my nighttime cravings have decreased. I heard on Dr. "Oz that it helps with weight loss-especially women. It is supposed to decrease the stress response of cortisol production, which causes the body to retain/gain weight. I think it is helping in many ways. I do notice that I snack less and my weight loss efforts are more productive. This is not a miracle herb or a quick weight loss gimmick. You still need to use diet and exercise-it just seems to make it more effective.

great for blood pressure and easy to take!**

Posted on Jun 02, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

My blood pressure has always been in the normal range, but lately it has climbed over 120 into the pre-hypertensive range-sometimes near 140. I had ordered Blood Pressure Response by Source Naturals, but the pills were gigantic, hard to swallow, and expensive. In addition, you need to take 5 a day-3 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon on an empty stomach. They were too big to fit in any normal-sze pill travel cases-- So add inconvenient to everything else. Arjuna is small, easy to swallow and requires 1 pill a day before you eat. Since I've started taking Arjuna my blood pressure is consistently below 120/80-sometimes below 110. I don't feel tired, light-headed, or sluggish. I looked Arjuna up on the internet and checked with WebMD to make sure that there are no dangerous side effects or interactions. Anyone on blood pressure medication should talk to their doctor before taking this product since it can interact with prescription meds or make your blood pressure too low. I usually take it at lunch time or dinner-whatever will be my largest meal of the day. It is very effective.

Great for flu and colds**

Posted on Jun 02, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

We have used oscillicoccinum for years. It is very effective if you start taking it at the first signs of any symptoms. Make sure not to take in conjunction with any type of food. We ordered it from iherb because the price was so much better than what we could find in our local stores-including Wal Mart! Also, iherb carries it in larger quantities. During the cold and flu season this stuff can go fast!

very effective! -helped my daughter's adult acne !****

Posted on Jun 02, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I take this either first thing in the morning or at night before going to bed. It has made a difference in the frequency of my trips to the restroom. I started giving these to my daughter. She hates taking pills of any kind, but now actually asks for these. She has had severe acne breakouts since she was 14. The dermatologist has had her on antibiotics for years-it seemed to be the only thing that actually helped. She stopped taking the antibiotics-it is just too much for too long and it is not a good idea for many reasons. Unfortunately, her acne became worse. Since taking probiotics, her acne is definitely improving. She was often constipated and her monthly cycle affects her digestion. She has not been constipated since taking these. However, there is no cramping or bloating. She says she feels better when she takes these every day. This is truly amazing!

Unkinow mineral blend included with enzymes

Posted on Jun 03, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

There is a mineral blend in this product that keeps the enzymes from being destroyed in the stomach and alleviates the need for an enteric coating-according to the manufacturer. I believe that this is a good product, but I am uncomfortable taking an unkown "mineral blend". I take other supplements, including some for my hypothyroid condition. Some include certain minerals. You need to be careful with the amounts and types of minerals you take. It would be helpful to know what minerals are included in this product. Also, after taking this I noticed an aftertaste and a peculiar odor to my perspiration. My husband still uses this brand, but I have switched to Serretia. I think the serrapeptase enzyme is great and it has helped both of us with joint pain and scar tissue.

great for acne****

Posted on Jun 02, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

My daughter has had acne since she was 13. The only thing that seemed to help were the antibiotics the dermatologist put her on. She had her on these drugs for years. Finally, she took herself off of them. Unfortunately, the acne returned even worse than before. I had read about Neem on iherb reviews and decided to have her try it. It hasn't been very long, but it seems to be helping. She also takes probiotics. She tends to forget to take the pills, but when she is consistent, you can see the difference.

good for low carb diets and diabetics

Posted on Jun 03, 2013

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

My husband is diabetic and I have been trying to find something that I can use in baking that will be lower in carbs and help glucose control. Adjustments need to be made in using this flour for baking, but it seems to help with his blood sugar and provides a better variety of foods that he can eat.
