Really help hairloss !

I've been taking these pills since May 2012, after I realized how badly my hair was falling out. I was rather oblivious to how much I was shedding until I noticed how many loose strands I'd be pulling out in the shower while shampooing, and although I'm aware hair is three times weaker when it's wet, it scared me. I went out the next day to buy things to make my hair strong again, such as shampoo without sulfates and these vitamins. I don't know how long it took before I actually noticed they were helping, I wasn't paying much attention because I was simply convinced they wouldn't help. But one day I realized not only was I leaving less hair all over the bathroom floor from brushing my hair, but I pull out a lot less when I shampoo my hair! So I know the majority of the progress has been because of thise Hair Formula. Maybe it is due to Soluble Keratin (Cynatine HNS). I read that Cynatine HNS is a revolutionary cosmeceutical ingredient comprised of Solubilized Keratin, a protein found naturally in the body. Cynatine HNS supplements the body with bioavailable keratin which aids in protecting and repairing damaged Hair, Nails and Skin. Cynatine HNS is clinically proven to be effective at 500mg per day. Hair Care: Cynatine HNS is able to bond with hair in the body and has been shown to reduce hair loss from washing, improve hair strength and improve the brightness and luster of hair. Nail Care: Cynatine is capable of binding with the nail and providing improved strength, elasticity and moisture retention Skin Care: Cynatine reduces fine lines and wrinkles through its zinc and copper complexes bound to proteins Cynatine promotes firmness and elasticity in skin by improving the protein structure and improving moisture retention Cynatine reduces redness from inflammation or sensitive skin by blocking PGE2 production.

Simply the best liver formula !!!

I have been a wine lover for many years. I can drink quite a bit more than you average guy. It is not out of the question to drink 8-10 glasses of wine in a day. I always drink at night after work and never had any negative effects on the job as I can function fine the next day. The problem came a year ago when in a routine physical my doc did blood tests and my liver function tests showed VERY elevated levels...like over 3-4 times what they should be. I didn't pay heed much but did taper my drinking for awhile. Time went by, I put it out of my mind and when I really did try to control my number of drinks I again went to a doctor to explore my options. I took another liver function test and they were all sky high. He asked me to reduce my drinking and return in 2 1/2 weeks to repeat the tests. I immediately researched fatty liver and started to find that this product had a lot of buzz on the internet. I ordered it priority overnight shipping and I also went to Trader Joe's and bought Milk Thistle. I took the recommended dose for the next 2 1/2 weeks and returned to get my blood tested again. My liver enzymes were all down significantly in just 2 weeks! To make it more amazing I did reduce my drinking some but was still drinking 4-6 a day. When my doctors and the nurses told me that this was something they have never seen in patients that fast when they stopped drinking. They said "I don't know what you are doing, but keep doing it!" That was enough for me. I continued to take these as well as 1000 mg of milk thistle a day since and I can not believe how much better I feel. I still struggle to moderate drinking but this product clearly made me feel better by helping my liver detoxify my system. I definitely recommend this for any reason you have to think your liver function is compromised from medications or other toxins we all put in our bodies !

You can not go wrong with Hemp protein !

I LOVE the Jarrow Formulas Hemp Protein. I bought this because I am a vegan and I was feeling like I could use some extra protein in my diet. I have been using it daily for about 2 weekss now and the results are highly satisfying. It adds a slight grassy flavor and slight texture so I can add it to whatever I am cooking without really noticing it. I mix it in salad dressing, mustard, tomato sauce, almond milk, coffee smoothies, fruit smoothies, or make a protein-packed cheat food like gluten-free cocoa pancakes with Hemp Protein in them. Also, it blends well with fresh or frozen berries and fruits.I do feel more energized when i take this, and you dont get that bloated gassy feeling like with soy. It is easy to digest and hemp protein is supposedly more usable by the body than whey or soy. There are 15g of protein per serving, not as much compared to whey, but hemp protein is nice because it is not produced from an animal product. It's not highly processed like whey, soy, rice or other protein powders. I realy love hemp powder because is an important source of amino acids, dietary fiber and essential fatty acids that brings me a lot of health benefits. I have read that hemp is very environmentally friendly since it is grown without pesticides and herbacides. Also, no other natural plant source contains the healthy blend of 21 amino acids, fibers and essential fatty acids than the seed of Cannabis sativa that offers a perfect nutritious diet which is easy for digestion as well as free from side effects. Other than offering high energy and nutrients for the body, hemp proteins contain 65 % of globulin that offers natural strength for the body to fight immune deficiency diseases. It offers natural antibodies that can safeguard your body from infection and related health disorders.Hemp powder is one of the few food sources which contains GLA! So, if you want an excellent source of protein from one of the most nutritious sources known, I higly recommended this

For the past three years i have had constant issues with my stomach such as gas, bloating all day, gaining weight, constipation, even though i look skinny. During these three years i went to see different doctors who kept telling me nothing was wrong with me and that I needed to change my diet (which I did) and do more exercise (which i did as well) but my stomach issues kept appearing. At the beginning of this year i decided to do a more thorough check up and ended up finding out I had H. Pylori which i was prescribed two antibiotics (amox and clarith) with another pill called "omeprazole" to take for two weeks twice a day. I only lasted three days because of serious side effects with these drugs so after doing a bit of research online I found out that there was a way to control and eradicate pylori with mastic gum and manuka honey as well as using probiotics. I purchases Nutricology`s mastic gum and finished the bottle (took for one month) and during the time i took mastic gum i decided to try out a gluten free diet and taking a teaspoon of manuka honey before bed. I took the mastic gum this way: one pill (1000mg) two hours before breakfast and one pill at night (one hour before manuka honey). The whole time i took mastic gum i did not have anymore issues with the symptoms i had described in the beginning of this review, i was amazed. My stomach began getting flat like it used to be (im 145lb and 5'8) and i did not have gas issues (passing gas a lot) anymore. When I finished the bottle of Nutricology i purchased a different brand called "Jarrow Formulas Mastic Gum 500" and took it for another month and i felt the same way as when i took Nutricologys brand so both brands worked for me. Flash forward to two months of mastic and manuka and I told my doctor that I was feeling fine and haven`t had issues with my stomach. I highly recommend Mastic Gum to everyone with same issue !

Great for Hairloss !

I loved keratin booster with Biotin and Saw Palmetto for hair and its better then any thing else ive tried and im so happy, finally something that really works for me. After a month in a half i notice my hair was thicker and nails stronger also softer skin and by all these differences since taking the product. My hair has literally stopped falling out & breaking. I can't get over how much better condition my hair is in already. I know that this product is working for me. Im on my third bottle, and my fourth bottle is on its way to me in the mail, cause i dont want to be with out it! Such a great ingredients profile ! The only organic keratin/biotin product I can find & now trust. As we know Keratin makes up 97% of your hair, but aging and nutritional deficiencies can weaken this vital protein. Bioactive, "naturalized" keratin helps restore lustrous hair through a soluble form the body recognizes and absorbs. Saw Palmetto and Plant Phytosterols are great for DHT Support: Research suggests their ability to inhibit DHT by blocking alpha- reductase, the enzyme involved in DHT production and a key contributor to thinning hair associated with male pattern baldness in men. Also, blend of trans-Resveratrol and full-spectrum, polyphenol-rich Pro-Longevity Factors provides antioxidant support for overall health and beauty. And last, but not least Biotin: Biotin is an essential B vitamin also known as vitamin H (H for hair). Biotin plays a role in the overall health of hair, nails and skin. It may help support thicker, fuller hair and stronger, more flexible nails. P.S. I plan to cotinue taking it faithfully i believe keratin booster will work for others cause its a good product that lives up to its claims. You just have to give it time, results dont happen overnite and it may take longer for some then others, to see results !

Great absoprtion !

Purchased at iHerb

BioPerine has been shown in clinical trials to increase absoprtion of several nutrients including co-enzyme Q10, selenium, curcumin, vitamin B6 and Vitamin C. Piperine has also been shown to help with thermogenesis, which is the metabolic process that generates energy in the human body, a key factor in maintaining weight loss. Piperine has been shown to help with fat metabolism and be able to accelerate energy metabolism in the body. In the clinical trials1: Serum levels of coenzyme Q10 increased with 14 days supplementation of BioPerine - Coenzyme Q10 has been studied extensively with benefits shown for heart health, radiation injury, Parkinsons and other health issues. Bioavailability of curcumin was increased 2000% when consumed with BioPerine - Curcumin is a popular spice which has also been studied extensively for its possible antitumour6 and antioxidant7 effects. Maximum plasma concentrations of vitamin C were higher when consumed with BioPerine - Vitamin C is also another essential micronutrient shown to have antioxidant properties. I take lots of dietary supplements, so when I read that this product helped in utilization of nutrients, I was sold. I have only been using this about 2 - 3 weeks and as we know, nutritional supplementation is a subtle thing and can take a while to recognize benefits. I noticed a significant increase in the effectiveness of the herbs I have been taking with the Bioperine. Also, I notice that my body is absorbing more of the vitamins I am taking as well. Knowing its not what you take, but how much your body absorbs. It was a clear to me this was a nutrient booster that everyone who take supplements should take. Because of the actions of piperine on digestion, it is best taken with, or around the time of a meal or with other supplements. I am looking forward to experiencing enhanced absorption of my dietary supplements, with the regular use of Bioperine !

Did Wonders for Allergies !

Purchased at iHerb

This has done wonders for my allergies, making it possible for me to tolerate my fall allergies with little discomfort this fall compared to usually being quite ill from the fall allergies. It also has lowered my blood sugar, which I am happy about. However I have had an unpleasant and possibly risky side-effect; and that is breast enlargement and tenderness occurring in less than a month of using the product. This is a known possible side-effect in both men and women. After only 30 days use I am going to try not taking it and hope my allergies remain tolerable. If not, I may use it at a reduced dosage until the severe fall allergies subside. I will only use it at the worst allergy times of the year, but not fulltime due to the side effects. If the breast enlargement continues to worsen I will not be able to continue taking this product at all. I read that Nettle root is a known to be a great source of beta-carotene and vitamin C. In North America, the root of the nettle is used to treat different health concerns than the leaves. This root of particular herb is known to be a diuretic and commonly used in the treatment of certain prostate issues in men, such as mild forms of benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostatitis. This particular herb has historically been used to treat and prevent baldness and combat dandruff and oily hair. In certain Latin-American medicines, the whole plant is used to treat respiratory issues, diarrhea, diabetes and heavy menstrual bleeding. The root of the nettle herb has also been employed in treating gingivitis, PMS, multiple sclerosis, gout, hives, kidney stones and laryngitis. If you are looking to buy the best supplements at a reasonable price, compare these products using our reviews and you will surely find a product that fits all of your health needs. Nettle root has a long history of use in traditional medicine as a diuretic to reduce fluid retention and to treat inflammatory disorders, particularly eczema, arthritis and etc.

Amazing Natural Cure !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I decided to try taurine capsules after doing a bit of research in preparation for writing a review for an energy drink that I received a sample of for review purposes. Taurine is an amino acid which is found in many if not most energy drinks and is where the energy drink Red Bull gets its name; the word "taurine" is from "taurus"(as in the astrological sign) which is Latin for ox or bull, and taurine was first isolated from ox bile in 1827. The taurine found in energy drinks and supplements today is not, however, from ox bile, but is produced in laboratories. What I learned when researching taurine is that contrary to what I expected, taurine, unlike caffeine, is not a central nervous system stimulant, but is instead said to have more of a calming, relaxing, or sedating effect. For example, referring to taurine, professor of pharmacology and anesthesiology at Columbia University Neil L. Harrison says, "Its inclusion in these supplements is a little puzzling, because our research would suggest ... (that) taurine actually would have more of a sedative effect on the brain." (Source: Cornell University Chronicle Online, "Scientists close in on taurine's activity in the brain" 2/13/08.) NOW Foods says that taurine "supports a calm mood," while acknowledging that this claim has not been evaluated by the FDA. I figured I'd buy some taurine caps and find out for myself how it might affect me in ways of which I can be subjectively aware. 1000 mg of taurine is what is found in 8 ounce servings of most of the energy drinks that contain taurine, so I figured that was the best amount to experiment with. In my experience, taking 1000 - 2000 mg of taurine on an empty stomach (NOW Foods recommends taking it between meals) has a subtle yet unmistakeable calming effect on me. I've taken taurine at different times of the day without any unwanted side effects.

Ever since Gillette stopped making its deodorant gel, I've been looking for something to replace it. (Yes, they still have anti-perspirant gels, but they used to have a straight deodorant gel too.) This Crystal Body Deodorant really does the trick. I'm a stinky guy and I need deodorant. Not that other deodorants don't work, but of the half dozen or so I've tried the past few years, I like this one the best. It is as good as or better than anything else I've used, plus it's natural and a lot milder than anything else. I don't like anti-perspirants because they don't work for me, I still sweat. So whether the chemicals in anti-perspirants are harmless or cancer causing is a moot point, they just don't work so why take the chance. Plus, I feel a stickiness when I do end up sweating. This deodorant is just a block of some sort of mineral salt. You have to wet it to apply, or just don't dry your pits after you shower and it is moist enough to apply. Very mild, I haven't had any sort of reaction to it. You can even use it on other body parts like your feet. This thing lasts forever. I've had mine for half a year and can't even tell that it's been used at all. I even feel like I put it on "thick". I rub it around my pit a lot more than the one or two swipes I would with a regular deodorant. Remember, this is not an anti-perspirant. You will still sweat. The one drawback I've noticed is, sometimes if I'm wearing a tight undershirt and have a sweaty day, my shirt will start to pick up an odor even though my pits themselves won't stink at all. The spray version works as well, it just doesn't last nearly as long. Crystal Spray Body Deodorant, 4-Ounce Spray Bottles in 3-Count Packages. And other than the packaging, I don't think this "Men's" version is any different than the regular stick, they are both fragrance-free. I'm sure that results of this product vary from person to person. If you sweat excessively and generally smell...

Finnally, somthing that worked !

Purchased at iHerb

This worked better and faster than 3 different antihistamines and several steroid inhalers put together (taken simultaneously per dr. prescriptions too!) In one dose I could breathe thru both nostrils and my lungs opened more than they did using 2 strong steroid inhalers every day! My brother said him lungs didn't hurt for the first time that week and my other brothers head ache went away. My nephew who has been wheezing this week didn't cough at night or the next day! I believe we had grain dust fever since last harvest and it intensified our reaction to histamine - airborne or from food. Eating chocolate would cause wheezing and difficulty in breathing for two of us but not with histame. The information that I have found online says to take within 15 minutes of eating offending foods. So far I have used it sparingly and kept to a primarily low histamine/amine diet--cost prohibits me from attempting a more aggressive use with this pill. So far it is quite effective against oranges, almonds, flavored coffees, and seems to have resulted and general improvement in inflammatory symptoms on the days when I take it. We are currently seeing a lung specialist and an immunologist for allergy shots but non of the meds we've taken alone or combined have done what this little supplement has done. Wish it wasn't so costly as I would use it more often. Finally, I want say that it is important to recognize the difference between food intolerance and food allergy. Many food intolerances are confused with food allergies. Non-allergenic histamine food intolerance is mostly brought on by foods not processed properly in the intestinal tract. In contrast, a food allergy is an abnormal response to food triggered by the body’s immune system. This works on high-histamine foods and drinks, is not for all allergies or food intolerance, so be sure to research "histamine intolerance" before spending money on this product .

Terrific antioxidant and sunscreen !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I used a dozens of this samples. First, I started taking this product for its antioxidant properties this past summer. Taking 3-4 capsules a day, I noticed after a few weeks that my skin had a lovely pink "glow" to it, for lack of a better word. Additionally, I made it a point to spend 30 minutes a day under direct midday sunlight to obtain vitamin D. I'm a very pale person, and in previous years, this would have resulted in some sunburn, especially on my forehead and nose. This year, there was no noticeable sun damage. However, after a few months, I started taking 1 capsule, which I think is the recommended dosage on the bottle, a day in order to save some money, and my skin lost its healthy pink hue. Now I'm back to being as pasty as ever. So at least in my case, I'm not sure it would be a good sunscreen at such a low dosage. I've also used Nutrex Hawaii BioAstin Natural Astaxanthin 4mgs., 120 gel caps, and I observe no noticeable difference between the two of them. In my experience, the two are comparable in every way, and they both yield terrific results. P.S. Also, it has huge range of benefits. Lab tests confirm that its antioxidant power is many times more potent than that of other nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, or lutein. The most important benefits of astaxanthin are: 1.It may prevent Alzheimer’s disease.2.It protects your eyes.3.It acts as natural sunscreen to prevent skin damage.4.It can be used to treat and prevent gastric ulcers.5.It reduces your risk of heart disease.6.It prevent premature aging.7.It may help to fight cancer.8.It promotes a healthier liver function.9.It improves your brain and central nervous system.10.It increases male fertility. 11.It may prevent diabetes.

My favorite pre workout supplement !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Best pre-workout on the market. It does everything and more it says. I'm pretty pleased with the results. Taste: I bought the Raspberry Lemonade flavor and it tastes amazing. Mixability: No complaints here. If you don't add a little extra water there will probably be a little bit left on the sides if you have a shaker cup, but nothing people can't handle. It's definitely manageable and not clumpy. Focus:I definitely felt more focused after using Assault. It's not quite tunnel-vision like other products I've tried, but it is enhanced a bit. I like the feeling that it gives me because I can still think about other things and be able to hit the weights hard. Effectiveness: I usually take it 20 minutes before my workout and it kicks in about 15 mins after consumption. The energy i get from this product is very very good. You can definitely feel the pumps on this. I can feel some pretty good pumps and I look like a monster when I'm at the gym. These pumps last for about an hour after the workout and are pretty impressive with a decent vascularity boost. Overall: Assault is a solid product and MusclePharm deserve a lot of credit for coming out with a brilliant PW. I've really enjoyed the product, and the taste alone may get you hooked- it's that good. You can feel your body almost switch into another gear when your on this product. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a boost to his or her workout. It has helped me with my size, strength, and muscular and cardiovascular endurance and I hope it does the same for you !
