I began my own health journey a few years ago and quickly took a wrong turn. Like many young women, I thought under-eating and over-exercising were the path to health. Boy, was I wrong! After a couple years, my health had gotten progressively worse. I became an exhausted young mom with severe acne, PMS and mood swings that could intimidate a seasoned combat veteran. I figured this was no way to live and began to research nutrition, natural supplements, and healthy living. Within a few months, I was a different person. Today I enjoy excellent health, sleep like a baby and my moods are fantastic.

The first scrub I LOVE.

Posted on Oct 20, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I've been looking for a great facial scrub for a LONG time. I've tried everything from typical drugstore brands to all natural/organic brands... I never found something worth purchasing twice. Many were ineffective and could hardly be described as "scrubs," while others broke out my sensitive skin (exactly the opposite of the effect I'm looking for!). I've been using baking soda, which is inexpensive, but messy and inconvenient at times. After trying this Acure scrub, I can't believe how much I love it! First of all, it does the job (no sparse "microbeads" that don't actually exfoliate). My skin feels velvety smooth after and looks fantastic, and you really only have to use it three times a week as per the instructions. My skin tone is much more even, and I've only used it a few times. I notice my makeup looks much more flawless than it did before (but, hey, with how great my skin looks, I might be able to use less makeup now!). Plus, you only have to use a little bit of product, which makes the higher price tag worth it for these results.

Pregnenolone is the youth hormone--even for the young!

I can't go without my pregnenolone! This 50 mg per day is the perfect dose for me. Even at 26, I've experienced signs of hormonal imbalance like fatigue, low moods, and skin that doesn't bounce back like it used to. This pregnenolone is no magic pill, of course, but all I know is 1) my PMS always improves when I'm on pregnenolone and 2) the skin around my eyes feels much firmer when I take it. I rarely experience such tangible results with supplements, so this one is definitely staying in my medicine cabinet!

A solid 3 star product.

I've tried several different zinc products over the years to help with my adult acne. This product is mildly helpful, and doesn't upset my stomach if I take it with a meal. However, it doesn't really compare to Jarrow Formula Zinc Balance, which I have found immensely helpful in clearing my skin. I will definitely switch back to Zinc Balance.

Very high quality magnesium glycinate.

Most magnesium supplements use magnesium oxide (which isn't absorbed well and can cause diarrhea even in small doses) or magnesium citrate (which can be very irritating to the digestive system). That's why I prefer this chelated magnesium, which is magnesium glycinate. This form of magnesium is gentle on the digestive system, easily absorbed, and it's bound to glycine, which is a stress-relieving, anti-inflammatory amino acid. At 200 mg per capsule, it's the perfect dose to take 1-3 times daily, which should raise magnesium to optimal levels. A+++

High quality zinc with real results.

I've tried a lot of zinc supplements during the past few years, mostly in response to my adult acne. Most of them made no difference I could see, and pretty much all of them made me sick to my stomach (even when taken with a full meal). This zinc comes with copper (two minerals that are very synergistic). After a month, my skin looks clearer and I have not had problems with my stomach once. Zinc and copper are a valuable combination for hair, skin and hormonal health, so I plan to take this one for life.

Outstanding value for vitamin A and D!

Purchased at iHerb

I've found this natural A and D softgel to be an hugely important part of my anti-acne regimen. These little pills pack a powerful punch, and when combined with a quality zinc/copper supplement, have cleared up my adult acne almost completely. Of course, vitamin A and D also support hormonal health and thyroid balance, so it's a good daily supplement. But its skin clearing benefits are the icing on the cake for me! This huge bottle lasts me for months, and is definitely worth the price.

5 stars for price and performance, 1 star for odor.

I really wanted to like this progesterone. Progesterone is a must for me during the last two weeks of my cycle. It keeps PMS at bay and helps clear up the acne breakouts I tend to get at that time. I was using Life-Flo brand, which worked well but was a little expensive for me. So I tried NOW Foods brand progesterone cream. It rivals Life-Flo in performance, but the smell of NOW progesterone is very off-putting. I like to use progesterone cream at night because it helps me sleep, but the smell of this product makes it a husband-repellant! I will be switching back to Life-Flo because of the odor issue.

Call me Ginger!

Posted on Dec 06, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

This is way better than store bought ginger. It has a more well-rounded aroma and taste, warm and spicy. This big bag is a wonderful bargain for me, because I use ginger in detox baths (about 1/4 cup in the bathwater). It's a great way to cut inflammation and get your circulation going. It does wonders for my skin!

I love orange oil, and this brand smells like pure, freshly peeled oranges. I use this in homemade cleaners and body scrubs, and I also sprinkle a few drops in my bottles of lotion and facial toners. Smells fantastic!

For some baked goods, I still like to use old-fashioned sugar. Florida Crystals produces a good-tasting organic product, and iHerb definitely carries it at a competitive price.

Finally, magnesium oil without the sting!

Posted on Oct 25, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I don't take internal magnesium because it tends to bother my digestive system. But my previous searches for a usable magnesium oil have been in vain. Well, actually, more like in PAIN! Other magnesium oils burn my skin dreadfully, even when diluted. This magnesium gel is much, much better. The only time it stings is if I apply it to my legs after shaving, so I simply avoid doing that. I use it in place of lotion and it works great, and eliminates my exposure to the chemicals and rancid oils commonly used in lotions. I've tried it as a deodorant, and it works moderately well (just not on a really hot day or if I do a lot of physical labor). I even use a dab to tame the flyaways around the part of my hair. Perfect! I've already gone through one bottle and purchased another, and I think my search for a great magnesium oil is finally over.

Great honey for kids!

My family loves this raw honey. My kids will eat it straight from the jar! In fact, my son won't eat any other kind of honey. Y.S. is a quality brand and their product is consistent and extremely tasty. I've order dozens of jars and I'll be coming back for more!
