Having tried other digestive enzymes, I say with confidence, this is a great enzyme to take. I've suffered with IBS for years. Not any more! Plant based enzymes such as these are more effective. I take 5 with each meal. Every person is different. Some may only need one or two. It's best to try just a few and increase the amount of capsules until your symptoms have gone away. Many doctors say to take just 1 with each meal. That often isn't enough and people are left thinking the enzymes don't work or the brand of capsules is the issue. Take it from me, this works. I've been to surgeons, gastro-docs, natural docs, you name it. Once I began taking this, I am symptom free. Side note:Specific enzymes work on specific foods. You need the right type of enzyme for the foods you want it to break down. Think of the foods you have problems with and then choose a product that contains at least those types of enzymes. Here is a list of the common enzyme types and foods they act on. Digestive enzymes are enzymes that break down food into usable material. The major different types of digestive enzymes are: • amylase – breaks down carbohydrates, starches, and sugars which are prevalent in potatoes, fruits, vegetables, and many snack foods • lactase – breaks down lactose (milk sugars) • alpha-glactosidase – facilitates digestion of beans, legumes, seeds, roots, soy products, and underground stems • protease – breaks down proteins found in meats, nuts, eggs, and cheese • pepsin – breaks down proteins into peptides • peptidase – breaks down small peptide proteins to amino acids • bromelain – derived from pineapple, breaks down a broad spectrum of proteins • papain – derived from raw papaya, broad range of substrates and pH, works well breaking down small and large proteins • lipase – breaks down fats found in most dairy products, nuts, oils, and meat • cellulase – breaks down cellulos, plant fiber; not found in humans.

I am a health-food, nutritional product junkie. I try new products all the time and occasionally find products that become part of my daily routine. ZeoForce goes well beyond that for me. It's amazing what 1 or 2 servings daily will do for your body and sense of well-being. I had a lot of amalgam fillings in my teeth for years and suffered what I now realize were the symptoms of mercury toxicity. After ameliorating that situation, I'm now doing a slow and steady mercury detox. I use cilantro, chlorella AND ZeoForce to help my body process the removal of heavy metals. Without ZeoForce, I was getting arthritis-y finger swelling and a host of other detox symptoms. Adding ZeoForce changed everything and now I let my body tell me when I need to take more ZeoForce although it's at least daily. In addition, eating wheat, sugar, dairy and other food sensitivities causes that whole finger swelling thing which responds within an hour to a cup of water and zeolite. My experience makes me wonder how many people who have symptoms that the medical community has labeled Arthritis actually have a sensitivity to foods, or heavy metals, or whose bodies are fighting something else. What I do know is that anyone who is striving for wellness needs to try this product. It's not like Bentonite (my first thought), but a sponge-like volcanic ash that's naturally magnetic. It pulls in heavy metals from your body, encapsulates them in its tiny molecular honeycomb structure, and helps to release them safely from your body. In my honest opinion, this stuff is worth whatever it costs, and I cannot imagine a day that ZeoForce will not be a part of my daily routine.

I've heard about the benefits of Ginkgo Biloba before and I decided to take the plunge and buy one. I noticed many benefits from taking Ginko Biloba. One I did notice after taking these is that I did have an easier time waking up in the morning and felt clear headed upon waking up. When I began to use this supplement it gave me more energy and I felt very strong. Also it increased my mental function. I was able to perform more tasks throughout the day and sleep better at night while taking this product. I also felt that my sexual interest and performance have increased, which I am loving. Beside this, I have read that Ginkgo is a good anti-oxidant and helping to minimize free radicals in all parts of the body. This is due to the flavonoids and terpenoids. Flavonoids have persuasive antioxidant effects. Studies have shown that flavonoids protect the nerves, heart muscle, blood vessels, and retina from damage. Terpenoids improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of platelets. Antioxidants such as Flavonoids help in eradication of free radicals that are found in our bodies and are potential hazards to our health and the functions of normal systems. Environmental toxins including ultraviolet light, radiation, cigarette smoking, and air pollution tend to increase the number of these hazardous free radicals which can cause aging, cell death, heart diseases, cancer and Alzheimer's disease along with other possible forms of dementia. Finally, I would highly recommend this product !!! The 120 mg dose is great and I don`t have to take as many capsules a day. Also, the capsules are easy to swallow and they are vegeterian, two points that are important to me. Great value and strong, effective and reliable product! All of this sounds like a miricle, but you can really feel the difference.

The Best Supplement Ever !

I bought this stuff because it seems to have a lot of different trace minerals. I have been reading about the importance of trace minerals in your diet and these kinds of products seem to fit the bill for getting the minerals you are supposed to be getting but probably not in the food you eat. Being a health minded person, I do everything I can to make sure I get the nutrients I need every day. So, this is an experiment for me. I have to say, I have been taking it for 3 weeks or so and have not noticed anything particularly different about the way I feel. So, I can't say if it is positive or negative. This might be one of those things that you have to take over a long period of time and get tested by your doctor to see if any vital signs are changing. This is not real expensive as you get a lot of servings out of a bottle. So, I will be taking it for some time and see what happens. Also, in my opinion lack of trace minerals leads to malfunctioning of the body's electrical system. Anyway, I noticed a SIGNIFICANT clearing up of my brain function about a month after I began taking this stuff AND my slightly depressive feelings went away. I attribute this to the lithium on this product. One thing to watch out for is the taste. It has a very strong taste and when you add it to a liquid to drink it, it really changes the taste of the liquid. I have added it to water but it is hard to drink in water without making a face. So I have been adding it to a stronger liquid, like cranberry juice to be able to drink it without wrinkling my nose. A bottle is supposed to be 90 servings. The jury is out on whether I will continue taking this type of supplement. If getting trace minerals is important to you, then this product is a good price for the amount of servings you get. It probably tastes no different than other similar products on the market, so it probably doesn't make much difference what brands you try. This is just as good as any and the price is right.

I think this stuff works! You feel more driven to accomplish things. I notice that when I don't take it I'll have less energy. It's not a hyper energy it's more of a calm focused energy. The powder is great because you can mix it with drinks and it tastes kind of maltey. I sometimes eat it directly from the spoon and rinse it down with water. I've read it's even better for women to take because it balances their hormones which fluctuate more than men's do. You need to start slowly with the dosage and adjust it according to your body's needs, then take a break from it occasionally or it appears to lose potency(for example: 3 week ON, 1 week OFF). I recommend using 1 tsp to 1 tbsp in water mixing it up and drinking it as fast as possible in the morning. It taste bad but you can mix it with juice or something else (smoothies, shakes and tea). It is necessary to note that аnyone who has a sensitive digestive system must be careful with the raw maca. Like other cruciferous roots, maca is particularly difficult to digest when raw. Not only is it fiber-dense, it also contains lots of goitrogens - that's why the raw root and it's flour is so bitter - so it's no wonder people have digestive and occasional hormonal (thyroid) complaints.To avoid this issue maca should be cooked in order to be gentle on digestion, on metabolism, and it has always been cooked traditionally(by the native Puruvians)for this purpose! Another option for those with digestive issue is Gelatinized Maca Powder(iHerb carry gelatinized raw maca). Gelatinized means that it's fiber has been removed, and goitrogens denatured. The gelatinized product was developed specifically to address the digestion issue inherent with the root. To summarize, I give this maca powder a five star rating because it's simply great . This stuff makes you feel better than any multivitamin you'll find and I definitely recommend it .

Makes my hair, skin, nails - softer, nicer and stronger. 1) Smells horrendous and tastes very gross. Tried it with a 12 ounce glass of lemonade and did not notice a thing. Glad to have found this method for downing it. 2) When I took about 12 drops at one time, my stomach felt like I had an indigestion. So will stick to just 6 drops twice a day. 3) The liquid outperforms the tablets. The tablets are easier to take and do not stink. 4) I'll always stick with this liquid form. I'm not sure if I want to try out their other stuff as this is working so well for me. 5) My hair is stronger and it's looking thicker. I am convinced that my hair growing faster than ever. 6) Great improvement in my skin. Yes, there is a difference also the fine wrinkles are looking better. My girlfriend say it's looking better. Results of softer and glowing skin is immediate. 7) Nail - definite improvement ! Now, I have stronger and fast growing nails than ever. Just a few days and I have to cut them, because they are too long :)) Finnally, do not forget that collagen is essential for beautiful skin, hair and nails as well as healthy bones and joints. But starting at age 21, collagen diminishes 1% per year. By age 30, the signs become visible. But to counter this we need collagen generator. Everyone knows that collagen is composed of three major protein: collagen, keratin, elastin. Collagen "plumps out" skin, removing wrinkles and preventing them from forming. In addition, collagen is essential for strong, healthy bones and joints. Keratin is the protein that's packed into your hair shaft. It gives your hair thickness, body, strength, and elasticity. Plus, keratin gives your nails strength. Elastin gives your skin its ability to stretch and "bounce back" preventing fine lines and wrinkles. I'm very glad that I found this product. Biosil have given me lovely nails, nicer skin and hopefully better hair. Highly recommend this product !

Great product for hair loss !

Today I went to my hairdresser for one of my infrequent perms, and she said she was amazed at how thick and healthy my hair has become in the last few months. Considering that she has been doing my hair for over a decade, that sounded very reassuring to me. My hair starting thinning during the 90's when I was under a lot of stress. Add to that my age and stage of life, and my hair had little going for it. I was so embarrassed about my hair. For several years I had been trying anything anyone recommended for hair loss, but nothing made a bit of difference. I was told that such products as Rogaine might help, but would have to be used indefinitely, once I started using them. I read the warnings on the Rogaine packages and was afraid to use it. A few months ago, I went online to iHerb, where I had been buying vitamins and supplements for several years, and on a whim typed in "hair loss products." One of the things that came up was Country Life Maxi-Hair. There were a number of comments on the product, and every one was positive. Some said they would never again be without it, as it had made such an improvement in their hair. So, since I tend to put a lot of stock in such reviews where the negative is printed along with the positive, I decided to order a bottle of Maxi-Hair. I was just beginning to notice a difference in my hair, when surgery was required again. Not only did I have to leave off the Maxi-Hair and all other vitamins. Immediately after the surgery in April, I started back on the Maxi-Hair. My hairdresser told me four months later, in August, that my hair was much thicker and stronger than she had seen it in years. Today she said it was the best she had ever seen it. I would highly recommend Country Life Maxi-Hair to anyone who needs help with thinning hair. But one shouldn't expect to see a difference overnight. Hair is said to grow about a half inch per month, so naturally it takes several months for new hair to be noticed.

One of the best antioxidant !

If I could only take one supplement it would be N-Acetyl Cysteine. I take NAC for several reassons. First one, as a part of my detox from heavy metals. I can definitely say that it chelates heavy metals such as mercury and lead from my body. As you know, N-Acetyl Cysteine is one of the most effective antioxidant supplements that boosts the bodies production of Glutathione. Glutathione levels are directly linked to health and aging and it is a required detoxifier and antioxidant for all cells. Higher levels are strongly associated with better health and in particularl lung and liver health and supports detoxification in both areas which constantly are challenged by airborne and other toxins in our environment. Second one, as part of my liver health. I've been taking NAC for a few months, and my most recent liver panel came back clean. In my opinion, this is probably the number one supplement for liver health. And this is not all, I felt a few more benefits. I would say that after taking this I started to feel my body aches and pains disappeared. Beside this, I have noticed a difference in my sleep after adding the NAC! Also, I have never had a hangover, when take NAC! Amazing ! In this case, I recommend taking two before drinking with a full glass of water and two before going to bed. Side note:I adviced you to take vitamin C at the same time (app. 500-1000mg Vit. C)for better absorption, and to to prevent any possibility of kidney stones from long term use. To avoid any side effects NAC should be cycled and should not be taken continuously. Bear in mind that N A C metabolizes through the liver and out of the body within one hour. If you fight against flu, viruses or colds need to use 2 or 3 tablets, every 3-4 hours. Overall effect was significant and I am very satisfied I chose to buy this stuff .

L-Arginine is an amino acid that is a precursor, or building block, for many other bodily chenicals and functions. The theory is that if one increases the building block material, more of the functional chemical will be produced. There are many potental uses for L-Arginine: L-arginine is the body's chief source for creating Nitric Oxide. Since Nitric Oxide is the chemical that allows the male to have an erection, L-Arginine supplementation is used to treat erectile dysfucntion. Some researchers claim that L-Arginine is as effective as Viagra in some individuals. Another sexual side effect is that L-Arginine may increase sperm count and increase sperm movement. Some studies suggest that L-Arginine may help to decrease blood pressure. In summary, L-arginine shows promise in the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease, in the treatment of some forms of male infertility and some kidney disorders and it is helpful in accelerating wound healing in some circumstances. It has demonstrated some positive immune-modulating and anticancer effects. There is preliminary evidence that it could be helpful in some men with erectile dysfunction and in some others with migraine, liver disease and primary ciliary dyskinesia. Dosage: L-arginine is available in tablet, capsule, and powder form and as L-arginine hydrochloride and free base L-arginine. It is also available in medical foods as an aid in the enhancement of immune function. Various doses are used depending on what one is trying to treat. For cardiovascular health reasons, doses from 8 to 21 grams daily have been used in divided doses. To help aid with sperm quantity and quality, doses of 10 to 20 grams daily have been used in divided doses. Doses of 5-8 grams daily have been used for erectile dysfunction. Doses of 1.5 to 2.4 grams daily have been used for interstitial cystitis (kidney func). Since the doses are quite high, it is best to purchase a large bottle of L-Arginine, such as 1 gram per capsules.

Great Soap !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Great soap!! Smells good and lather really well. It is made of numerous essential oils which help various skin issues. When you first use it, you will break out slightly, but that is totally normal as it is getting out the embedded impurities in your skin. Continue to use it and do not quit due to seeing a new pimple. If you continue using it, your skin will level out and be so smooth and clear. Also make sure in storing the bar that you store it on a rack that will allow air to get to all sides of the bar. If the bar is left to sit in a container where air cannot get to the underside of the bar then the bar will become soft on the backside as it is sitting in moisture. I absolutely LOVE this scent, but then I love sandlewood. If you are the type of person that does not like incense from India or that 'bee flower' sandlewood soap from China, OR if you usually wear chemical commercial perfumes or fragrances (as opposed to natural essential oil scents), then you 'might' not be used to this scent and probably wouldn't like it. But if you DO like all of the above (natural scents, Indian incense, bee flower soaps), then you will most likely enjoy the scent of this soap. We love it, and to us it smells fresh and clean, but not overpowering. It also makes the bathroom smell good too. Since it's made with natural oils and ingredients, I would recommend leaving it on a spikey type of soap dish, so it can air out and drain properly, otherwise, if you leave it in a regular soap dish, it may get gooey and melt. It REALLY WORKS WONDERS FOR THE SKIN! It has already cleared up a skin condition I had on my arms after only four days. and it doesn't seem to strip my skin of oils (unless you wash twice in a row with it, but you only need to wash once). Also, this soap is advertised as being good for people with Kapha-Pitta skin. Apparently, I have too much Pitta and not enough Kapha for this soap to be a good soap for me! I will definitely order more when I run out .

Great combination for healthy hair !

I read about the benefits of Ayurvedic`s herbs for hair and scalp and thought of ordering this to try. The Base of Sesame oil is a great choice, because Sesame oil is rich, nourishing oil especially esteemed in the Ayurvedic tradition for its warming and enriching properties. There are a great ingredients profile: - Emblica officinalis (AMLA). As we know Amla hair oil is very beneficial for hair growth and it is available in Ayurvedic stores. Amla for hair has been well known for its benefits to help hair growth. It has been used for thousands of years for its healing properties and natural hair cooling effect. Amla oil encourages hair growth by fortifying the hair with rich nutrients such as linolenic acid, which is an omega 9 fatty acid and vitamin C. Amla oil strengths the hair follicles which prevents hair loss and excessive hair shedding. - Centella asiatica (Gotu Kola). Gotu Kola or Brahmi helps increase circulation and blood flow to the scalp. When enough blood reaches the follicles, they are less likely to be killed by the effects of DHT. They are stronger and healthier. - Ocimum sanctum (Holy Basil). Holy Basil or Tulsi Helps to Rejuvenate Hair Follicles. By stimulating the hair follicles, many that were not working or working improperly become rejuvenated and start producing healthy hair again.Basil helps to strengthen the hair shaft. Brittle or weak hair breaks off easily and results in thinning hair.This herb has antioxidant properties. It contains two flavenoids (orientin and vicenin) that protect the chromosomes and cell structures from oxidation, which causes cell aging and death, and also protects the cells from radiation damage. - Withania somnifera(Ashwagandha). Ashwaganda s a herb and ancient immune boosting remedy is nor new. In fact it has been used in arjuveda for some 4000 years to help people live longer, feel younger, have more energy, grow healthy hair and stop stress.
