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.

Simply the best liver formula !!!

Purchased at iHerb

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 !

Purchased at iHerb

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

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 !

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 !

Very effective !

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 !

Terrific antioxidant and sunscreen !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

13 people found the following review helpful

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

19 people found the following review helpful

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 !

The Best combination for eye health !

Posted on Sep 01, 2012

6 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I take this product for overall eye health and I definitely can say that it has improved a lot. My eye floaters are mostly gone from my view. My eyes see more clearly, no longer feel tired. I have tried other eye health combinations and none worked as well as this one. Lutein & Zeaxanthin are two of the best nutrients for vision that I've read about. Lutein is an antioxidant carotenoid that occurs in nature with zeaxanthin, a closely related carotenoid. In my opinion taking it has very essntial value, because both lutein and zeaxanthin protect the macula from degradation normally associated with aging and oxidative stress. Eating lots of lutein- and zeaxanthin-containing vegetables can help maintain the structural integrity of the macula. However, since meso-zeaxanthin is not part of the typical diet, it cannot be replaced except in supplement form. Also, scientific studies have shown that Lutein may also serve to protect skin from the damage induced by UV light. Beside lutein and zeaxanthin, this formula includes and C3G (Cyanidin-3-gluco-side), a cutting-edge berry flavonoid compound that helps to stimulate regeneration of rhodopsin. Rhodopsin is a compound in the eyes that absorbs light in the retina. As rhodopsin dramatically declines over time, it leads to a progressive loss of night vision. By helping to maintain rhodopsin, C3G helps to support night vision. In addition, lutein and zeaxanthin are usually very expensive in drugstores, but this product provides me with 2 months supply. Also, this product contains small very easy to swallow gelatin gels. Of all the eye- care natural pills I have taken, these are my personal favorite so far. I've feel it to be very beneficial to my overall eye health and without any side effects. I will continue to take this as I think even greater results can be achieved with regular use .

D&A Spice Mill - Garlic At Its Best

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

If you're like me, often you just don't have the time or forgot to buy some fresh garlic at the store, and pretty much bottled dry garlic just doesn't cut it - I've tried them all! BUT.... that's where D&A Garlic comes in - their spices, Garlic, Salt, Pepper and others, are simply the best possible products is an easy to use grinder container. Yes, you can easily find similar products at the store, but NOT similar taste. Go ahead, try the garlic - heat up some spaghetti in a pot, add butter to coat, and grind on a nice amount of D&A Garlic, stir and let sit for just a minute or two - the fresh and natural flavor, as well as small fresh garlic pieces will astound you (and no tomato needed!) Try adding some fresh garlic to your buttered popcorn, get inventive! The Med. Salt and the Multi-pepper are equally fantastic on your steaks, eggs or other favorite standard fare - add some spice to your life today. These are worth the extra price - you pay for what you get! (and if you want quality, taste, and unmatched excellence - this is it. (I even had some old Garlic that was 3 years past its recommended best use date, and it was still wonderful - better than the other junk I had just bought at the store, which is what prompted my to retry this brand from Italy - made in Florence, with care and pride) .

Did Wonders for Allergies !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

12 people found the following review helpful

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 Quick Healthy Breakfast, and Vegan !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

12 people found the following review helpful

Original Mix (I prefer this one because there is no added sugars) Taste: In a green smoothie: Changes the texture of the smoothie just a bit, nothing too noticeable or annoying. Also adds a different flavor to the overall smoothie that helps enhance the taste when combined with the right greens and fruits. With Almond milk: I am not used to eating sugars and processed foods, so this actually tastes pretty great to me. I saw some earlier reviews complaining about taste and I honestly have no problem slowly sipping on this shake as I drive to work in the morning. I have tasted some horrid protein shakes in the past and this one is delicious! Overall Feeling: I feel fantastic after having Amazing Meal in the morning. Completely clear minded and energized for the day. Even without the accompaniment of a multivitamin, this meal powder stands alone in providing a days worth of energy and clear minded thinking. Cons: I found that I needed to get used to the added probiotic that is apart of the meal. I found myself for the first four or five days, starving only 2 hours after drinking one of these shakes. It was like I couldn't get enough food, I had to eat every two to three hours to stop the hunger. I am unsure whether it has to do with the combo of probiotic or the digestive enzyme that is added. Like I said though, after 5 days that feeling of starving all the time went away. It now fulfills me completely. Overall: This is the best meal shake I have come across thus far in my search for the perfect morning/ after workout shake. I have tried many from whole foods and other various health food stores. The fact that I have decided to actually buy another container of Amazing Meal must mean I really like it! I've been taking it for 2 weeks and, this wasn't my initial intention, but have lost 5 pounds. A nice little added bonus:) Highly reccomened if you are looking for a great protein/vitamin/healthy living shake .
