Good, pure BCAA

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

15 people found the following review helpful

First, what is BCAA`s ? L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine are commonly grouped together and referred to as Branched Chain Amino Acids, or BCAAs, because of their unique branched chemical structure. BCAAs are essential, meaning that they must be consumed through the diet, since the human body cannot make them from other compounds. BCAA's are a must for muscle building, and these capsules are a pure source of BCAA's, in the most commonly recommended ratio (2:1:1 Leucine : isoleucine : valine). I must recommend powder, though. These, and all other BCAA capsules, are a very inefficient way to take in BCAA's due to serving sizes. A serving of BCAA's should be typically 5 or 6 grams. With typical capsules like these, that's 10 or 12 capsules per serving (.5g pills). Doing that several times a day gets old quick, and when you take other supplements with these, it would only make sense to get powders so you can make a drink with all of them at once instead of taking a handful of capsules several times a day. ON's BCAA 5000 powder or Ultimate Nutrition's BCAA 12,000 powder are good alternatives to this product. Keep in mind that this product is actually the same powder, put into capsules and not flavored. A serious plus about the powder is that flavored BCAA powder is good at masking the taste of other supplements, allowing you to buy the pure forms of other supplements and not have to worry about the taste that some other supplements can pack (ever taste arginine by itself?). Powder is also much more efficient on the wallet. I'm cheap, and I stick to the two I just mentioned, the prices on Amazon fluctuate but those two stay relatively low. But then again, if you're goal is for a couple grams of BCAA's a day (to each his own), you should probably stick with these. ON will never let you down, they're good at making simple, cheap products (hence the 5 stars even though I recommend a different product, for BCAA CAPSULES, it's hard to beat these).

Excellent toothpaste !

My sister referred me to this product which was recommended by her dentist. I don't normally listen to her most of the time :), but in this case I was very satisfied with the effect. I brush with Periobrite for a 2 minutes and then use the mouthwash. I am very impressed with the results. When using Periobrite I felt the difference immediately on my teeth and my gums.After the first bottles, my teeth were whiter and my breath fresher and it lasts for hours! I love this natural toothpaste, because contains no fluoride, no mercury, no SLS or other artificially colored like other toothpastes. It has a lack of unnecessary or harmful ingredients, and is not gaggingly sweet. Nature`s Answer include a list inside the box of articles backing the ingredients of the toothpaste. Everyone can see how they put thought into what herbs and plants would clean teeth the most. Even has CoQ10 for healthy teeth and gums! It is brownish in color and it doesn't foam like regular toothpaste, but it is very effective. Sometimes it is very stiff and hard to get out of the tube. The taste might be too earthy ( herbal ) for some people, but that's when you know you got a good product. I use the suggested pea-sized amount on my toothbrush, which is adequate and makes the tube a very good value. Finally I will say that it really does brighten and whiten your teeth after a very short time of use and will never go back to regular toothpaste again . I recommend this product to others and also their mouthwash.

Tasty and free of nasty fake sugars !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

14 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

This gum is old school. It doesn't believe in all those fancy, new fangled sugar alternatives. Ingredients are simple: Xylitol, gum base (contains natural chicle), gum arabic glycerin, natural flavors (lemon, lime), sunflower lecithin, resinous glaze, beeswax, carnauba, beta carotene and chlorophyll. It also doesn't mess around with synthetic color agents (no Red #40 or Yellow #5 lurking in these boxes). Bonus is that it tastes great Lemon-Lime. No it doesn't stay flavorful for an extra, extra, extra long time, but its delicious for long enough to get a nice minty taste in my mouth and satisfy my desire to chew. Also, I love this gum as a digestive aid after eating, to produce enough saliva for digesting protein and carbs, and it works great. I had discovered Glee Gum years ago and enjoyed it, but hadn't thought much about it again until I realized that EVER gum at the corner store or gas station had either aspartame or saccharine in it. Even the tried and true Juicy Fruit has turned to the dark side. Thank you Glee Gum for offering this delicious, all natural alternative to the neuro-toxin laced sticks sold by your competitors. I appreciate it and I will continue to buy your fine product for many years to come. Beside this, however working with fewer artificial ingredients does have a few drawbacks. First, as other reviewers have commented, the flavor does fade quickly. Second, the gum tends to be a bit sticker, which may be an issue for those with sensitive teeth. Would definitely buy this product again. The only improvement I can think of would be in the box design, which has a tendency to open in your bag if you're not careful. As a side note, the graphics on the box are so retro & fun!

Great soap for those who love natural black soap !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

32 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

This soap is amazing. I give it five stars for the following reasons: 1) First, the smell - It smells divine, leathers nicely and cleans the skin perfectly without drying it too much. Even my girlfriend which is very sensitive with soaps likes it very much. 2) When other soaps fail to treat your skin issues, Nubian Heritage does not -- Most people try this soap because of skin issues, including skin sensitivity issues. I am very sensitive to most cleansing products; my face becomes a dry, itching mess quite easily. I also still contend with pimples. This soap helps control my acne without turning my face into a dry, red mess. 3) Your skin was soft once and will be again -- This soap has phenomenal moisturizing properties. It feels great on your skin. I don't have to apply baby oil or moisturizing body lotion because this soap does it all. If your hair becomes dry during particular periods of the year, try washing your hair with this bar rather than using hot oils or protein soaks. 4) Ingredients you can pronounce -- I don't want dyes or heavy chemicals in anything I use but especially on my face. This soap has a straightforward ingredient list. This product is vegan in nature with no animal based products and it is not tested on animals. Also, it is a great body soap for all skin types of all ages and ethnicities. I like the extra oils that this bar of soap has added..feels like it will last a long time ....very fine milled, but the only point I'd have is to know exactly what type of oil is used in a particular Nubian Heritage soap. Whether its pal oil or coconut oil exactly.Or, if both are used,I'd like it to be stated.Otherwise,I like very much their soap line. And,this is the great one in particular. Thanks for making such a great product at a reasonable price.I am also now using the Raw Shea Butter lotion made by the same company and I am convinced that I found the perfect combo to great skin.

Great Cleanse !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

9 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I've used this product several times over the last few years. It is a great and easy to use cleansing program that is not so aggressive it makes you feel bad. One advantage of this product is that it uses natural ingredients. Unlike many other diet supplements, this product does not contain many harmful chemicals as filler ingredients. You will need to make sure that you follow the diet recommendations in the pamphlet to get the most out of the cleanse, lean meats - poultry, fish, vegetables, etc. Also, drink plenty of water (because, taking without enough liquid may cause choking), and try to sweat for 30 minutes a day. Even if it is just sitting in a hot bath tub You will feel the product working and you will feel lighter, more energetic. I will consider this for regular body cleaning every three to four months as the product recommends. Appears to be no negative side effects. The capsules don't irritate my stomach (as many have reported) and I don't mind taking truck loads of supplements each day. I'm assuming that the folks that can't take pills twice/ three times a day do not regularly or actively take supplements anyways. It's non-invasive and relatively standard for a supplement cleanse. I would recommend this for beginners or those of you who would like to be able to leave your house while doing it. It is a great and easy to use cleansing program that is not so aggressive it makes you feel bad. Every day your body is exposed to impurities and toxins that can build up inside and affect good health. So, be sure to consider taking this or similar product. ---Side note---The Thisilyn Fiber Blend contains psyllium as its main ingredient. So, you need to avoid psyllium if you have a throat problem or difficulty swallowing. If you are allergic to melon, English plantain pollen or grass pollen use caution because you may have cross-sensitivity to psyllium.

Good for regular clensing !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I have had fairly good results with the Thisilyn cleanses. I'm a bit confused on the difference between the mineral and herbal. Nature's Way customer service advised me that the mineral was slightly more potent however; on the box it lists the herbal as slightly stronger. Also when you select the herbal kit you get the mineral, when you choose the mineral you get the mineral. Not sure if it was a mix up but, for the past four orders that has been my experience. I honestly believe it has dramatically improved my IBS. I have substantially more energy, my constant headache has gone away, I dont wake up with aches and pains, I sleep throughout the night, my hair and skin is smoother, and for the first time in years I can breathe through my nose! I will say that about day three each time I get a bout of acne that resembles something off of the Wicked Witch of the West. The capsules don't irritate my stomach (as many have reported) and I don't mind taking truck loads of supplements each day. I'm assuming that the folks that can't take pills twice/ three times a day do not regularly or actively take supplements anyways. It's non-invasive and relatively standard for a supplement cleanse. I would recommend this for beginners or those of you who would like to be able to leave your house while doing it. It is a great and easy to use cleansing program that is not so aggressive it makes you feel bad. Rather I have always felt great all the way through this cleansing program and never had any side effects from too rapid or too much cleansing too fast. Lots of pills to take but no different than the vitamins I take daily. Use a pill box and take morning and night and you should have no problem. The digestive sweep isn't a turbo cleanser like some but, it does do the trick.

Ginseng for all !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

13 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I bought this product after reading about its healing and natural energy effects and I love it. I had been trying to quit caffeine for over a year, but every time I had gone about three days without it, I would get excruciating headaches, and I would have no energy nor motivation. I finally got fed up with this and rather frightened when the headaches came just a few hours without caffeine, and I decided to research about methods of quitting caffeine. I read on the internet that ginseng is a good alternative, so I bought this product. It definitely got rid of the headaches and kept me awake all day with no crash and it gives me more energy, mental clarity and believe or not, I sleep better. I guess this product made me normal again, which is amazing for me. I was surprised and pleased by another, unexpected effect... let's just say it is basically like nature's viagra. There was a definite positive change in that regard, and since I was not anticipating it, it can't be placebo effect. I have since read that this is actually a common use for ginseng, and that it has been an aphrodisiac in Asia for centuries, as a benefit in psychiatric and neurological conditions, and for enhancing vitality. Korean red ginseng, a herb considered an aphrodisiac in some Asian countries, seems to be an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. In some Asian cultures, ginseng has been used traditionally to boost sex enjoyment and sexual stamina. So it is not surprising that recent scientific studies have demonstrated that Korean red ginseng is able to dramatically enhance and help maintain healthy sexual function in men. These are gelcaps and are easy to swallow. They dont contain artificial fillers and are easy on the stomach. Highly recommended if you want to start on Panax Ginseng supplements. ---Side note---Be aware, some people may react to this product with the shakes, lightheadedness, and dizziness.

Great benefits !

Great product! I have been using this for awhile now and have found it to be very effective. My hair is getting thicker, my muscle is getting strong and hard. The increase in mental function and drive is far better than i had hoped for. Easy to swallow and it contains no soy. I like the forms and dosages used in this product. And I also like that it comes in liquid capsule form - an innovative delivery system. I take 2 softgels per day, one in the morning and one in the evening with a meal. As we know, Vitamin E is an important nutrient factor for the body because if you are deficient in vitamin E your body and your DNA are not as protected from the free radical damage. However, Tocotrienols having the most important components of the Vitamin E family. Alpha tocopherol ( regular vitamin E ) displaces critically important gamma tocopherol in the cells. While alpha tocopherol inhibits free radical production, gamma tocopherol is required to trap and neutralize existing free radicals. Gamma tocopherol is one of the most critically important forms of vitamin E for those seeking optimal health benefits. In fact, studies show the combination of alpha- and gamma-tocopherol supplementation appears to be superior to either supplementation alone on biomarkers of oxidative stress and on inflammatory factors. Most commercial vitamin E supplements contain little, if any, gamma tocopherol. They instead rely on alpha tocopherol as the primary ingredient. However, it is gamma tocopherol ( not the alpha form ) that quenches peroxynitrite, the free radical that plays a major role in the development of age-related decline. Tocotrienols are 40 - 60 times more powerful than the inferior Alpha Tocopherol used in all vitamin E and multi-vitamin formulas. Toco-Sorb is the best and only effective Vit E I have found !

Probiotics prevent many auto-immune disorders

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

As far as this specific probiotic goes, it seems pretty good. It has 16 active cultures and includes a little fructooligosaccharide - a type of fiber found in some vegetables. Fiber is by definition stuff we cannot digest, but bacteria can. So it's like fertilizer for the probiotics you're taking. I think that any decent probiotic supplement or fermented food with live cultures is a good thing to make part of your diet. Tons of research is demonstrating that a lot of auto-immune disorders can be caused simply by sterilizing the intestines followed by introducing various bad bacteria cultures. The bad bacteria cultures digest components of our food and have nasty byproducts/waste. In the absence of "good" bacteria cultures in the intestines, this waste from bad bacteria cultures cause inflammation. The inflammation in time damages the villi lining of the intestines, making it more permeable - ie it allows more partially digested food and bacterial waste into the bloodstream. When whole proteins start getting into the blood stream, the immune system may think it's an infection, and trains to remove protein. What else is like protein? Lots of organs, joints, and tissue. So in some circumstances the body will fallaciously attack itself. This is what an auto-immune disorder is. The medical term for the effect of bad bacteria in the gut is "increased intestinal permeability", but often is refereed to as "leaky gut". This isn't quack science or snake oil. You can tell if it's working because your feces should start becoming like the ice cream out of an old school ice cream dispenser. You shouldn't ever be bloated, and probably will see less body wide inflammation. What do bad bacteria love? Sugar & flour. What was over-prescribed in the late 20th century? Antibiotics. If you combine anti-biotics with sugar/flour heavy diet, you are essentially reproducing the steps of the study on making lean rats obese .

So far So good!

I ordered the Manuka Honey after a lot of research to find if it actually can help with stomach problems. After reading a few news articles etc... it seems this stuff can really work, so I thought I'd give it a try. I've tried all the doctor's ideas, and it was time for my own. I'm a tad disappointed that it is a plastic container, as we try to avoid plastic packaging. Unlike others stated, our top was closed and everything was all sealed up tight! As stated by a few others, this honey is not for the light hearted! it won't be like the honey you get in the squeezy bottle with the cute picture of a bee on it. I'd assume if you are purchasing this, you are for the same reasons as most (medical reasons). So, no, it is not the best tasting honey I've ever had. In fact, it is hard for me to get down. It is VERY strong, sweet and THICK! I've bought regular organic, raw honey before and this is WAY stronger! I don't think taste should be a deciding factor if you are buying it for medical reasons. So far, I am noticing a few changes in my stomach problems for the better! I am very hopeful these will continue to get better as I increase the intake. This is how I am taking it. I did not find any directions ON the bottle. I hope this is helpful: How is Active Manuka Honey taken for acid reflux, heart burn, up-set stomach stomach ulcer, gastritis, duodenal ulcer, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)? Active Manuka Honey is especially useful for an upset GI Tract, because a 5% concentration of this honey has shown to destroy helicobacter pylori, the bacteria that causes most stomach ulcers. Active Manuka Honey also seems to destroy a range of bacteria associated with gastroenteritis and diarrhea. Take one teaspoon of Active Manuka Honey and put it on a square inch size bread, or toast, bagel, cracker or a slice of banana, and take it 20 min. before meals to coat out the gastro intestinal tract. Do not drink anything right after Manuka Honey intake!

AMAZING PRODUCT !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

4 people found the following review helpful

This drink is absolutely delicious. I have not tried any of the other flavors of Amazing Grass, but this chocolate is totally amazing. I am very open-minded about food, and I am quite the health nut - but with all the healthy ingredients in this mix, I honestly expected to be able to tolerate it, but not love it. Well, much to my very pleasant surprise, it was love at first sip. Wow! Who knew something so ridiculously healthy could taste so indulgent? It is unbelievably good. 30 calories per serving of 8 grams= 1 g fat, 2 g protein, 4 g carbs (2 g fiber), 65% Vit A, 30% of C and K, 15% of B12 and Riboflavin, 6% of iron and manganese; organic grasses (wheat, barley, alfalfa, spirulina, spinach, broccoli, chlorela); with antioxidant from maca, acai, carrot, rose hips, beet, pineapple, green tea, acerola cherry. Fiber from apple pectin, organic oat powder, organic flax seed powder. Also L acidophilus, peppermint, Siberian eleuthero root, and sea salt. While simply adding a scoop to a cup or two of almond milk makes for a delicious drink, my favorite way to use Amazing Grass is to add it to a fruit smoothie. A little nondairy milk, frozen fruit of choice (cherries are awesome), half a frozen banana, a tablespoon or so of ground flaxseed, and a scoop (or half a scoop) of Amazing Grass = BLISS. So healthy, filling, and amazing. Pros: Fastest shipping I've ever seen! When I bought it from Amazon it arrived the next day FREE SHIPPING! Best chocolate superfood I've ever found! Gives me tons of energy. Inexpensive on Amazon. Negs: You really need to make a shake out of this to avoid the graininess of it. You can add to water if you must but shake or blend in the blender, don't stir it . FAVORITE RECIPE: 1 cup fat free organic yogurt (vanilla) 1 tbs peanut butter (ground fresh at your local grocery store natural section...no sugar added!) 1 organic banana 1 cup organic unsweetened chocolate almond milk. 1 scoop of Amazing Grass Superfood

Not the most potent, but still very good.

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

8 people found the following review helpful

I've been using this product off and on for about a year and am very happy with it. I think the most important thing is to keep your expectations in line and realize what you are getting and what you can expect from it. For starters, this is not the potent tribulus you can get. If you've been using other, high potency brands, switching to this and expecting the same sort of kick is going to leave you disappointed. That said... if you are new to tribulus, this still will do the job nicely and is very affordable to boot. As far as working out in the gym, I find that this tribulus helps *some*, but not NEARLY to the extent that a stimulant based pre-workout energizer does. You just will not get the same kick, so forget about it. Even if you jack up the dose high enough that you have the jitters, it just will not translate into the same "tear through your workouts rush" that other products give you. So while it doesn't give you that strong stimulant based performance boost, I do find that does enhance my sense of well being and general enthusiasm about working out. The athletic performance based effects are subtle. Now with that said, the main benefits to this product are sexual. Libido and drive are WAY up. I find that one tablet per day (1000mg) is a comfortable dose for me several days a weeks (not continually). Two tablets per day are the absolute max I can take, and only for a day or two at a time. It just makes me very uncomfortable when I'm sitting around doing nothing. If I'm spending my day exercising or training intensely, then two tabs per day is fine. So while not as potent as other offerings, the large mg dosing makes up for it. The product is definitely effective for me, but just understand the benefits before you buy.
