Great Shaving Cream

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

8 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

This is my third tube-type shaving cream that I've used and I'm loving it -I can't go back to foam. I recall reading a couple of reviews where they said that the cream clogged their blades -I believe they might've put on too much- all you need is a light/thin coat of this on your face. This shaving cream is pretty thick and really protects your face, giving you a close shave. I suggest you rinse your shaver as you shave, this way it keeps the blades unclogged. There are so many things I like about the Aubrey Organics - its scent, its creamy texture, its ease going on the skin its natural pedigree, its feel on the skin, its moisturizing properties, and mostly the close, comfortable shaves I enjoy when using Aubrey Organics, Creme de la Shave.

Sappo Hill makes fantastic soap. It's very mild and creates a rich, lasting lather. I was sick of using soaps/cleansers that were full of preservatives and sodium laureth sulfate, and I wanted a product with minimal packaging (enough with the plastic, already!). Then I found Sappo Hill, and I've never looked back. Because their soap is so gentle, I use the non-scented variety on my face -- I have sensitive, oily, blemish-prone skin, and this soap cleanses my face without drying. It rinses off effortlessly, leaving my face squeaky clean (but not overly-so). With a shockingly minimal ingredient list, I know there's nothing in it that will irritate my skin or interfere with my acne treatment or moisturizer. As I keep the bar at my bathroom sink, I also use it to wash my hands. One bar lasts me about eight weeks with daily use on hands and face. I usually buy this soap by the bar from my local organic grocery, which is great because it has absolutely zero packaging. My favorite Sappo Hill's soap is deffenitly oatmeal. It smells like a big bowl of oatmeal and has lots of large real oats in it as well. It helps exfoliate my skin & keeps it soft without drying it out. I threw away all of the chemicals after I tried the Sappo Hill Almond Soap. The cruelty-free, vegetarian, and God-sent soap completely cleared up my skin. I have personal proof that vegetarian products are better than animal-tested, artificial chemicals! Also, it has no fragrance, no sneezing. It cleans, no "BO". Simply perfect! I've tried two other varieties of Sappo Hill's soap--lavender and sandalwood -- and all are top quality and long-lasting. What the world needs now is more natural soap, so please keep on making soap.

Superb probiotics !

Enzymatic Therapy makes quality products. First, these are enteric coated, so they will survive a trip through your stomach acid and into your small intestine. By the time these live bacteria cultures make it to your small/large intestines, the coating will have dissolved enough to release the contents. In your intestines, these good critters take up shop, helping to break down your foods. Acidophilus will help eliminate gas and bloating, especially if you have ever taken antibiotics. Antibiotics kill off bad bacteria as well as these necessary good bacteria. I think everyone should at least take 30 days worth of acidophilus pearl after coming off each course of antibiotics. I learned this the hard way years ago. After doctors really couldn't help with my stomach troubles despite several prescriptions, I researched acidophilus. Not only did acidophilus make me regular like factory assembly line, I stopped getting sick. When you constantly introduce good bacteria into your gut, these good bacteria will outnumber any bad bacteria that makes it's way into your digestive system. The good bacteria wage a daily war to keep you healthy. Just ensuring that your body has all the good bacteria it can handle goes a long way towards keeping you from ever getting ill. I tried lots of brands. Every manufacturer has a different way of measuring how many live and active cultures are contained in each capsule. I just know that personally Enzymatic Therapy (and several other brands too) works exceptionally well for me. Cheap pharmacy brands are not worth your money. These capsules are shelf stable and do not need to be refrigerated, so you can keep them wherever is convenient, and you don't have to worry about the product getting degraded in shipment. I know I'll take these for the rest of my life, and iHerb's price is better than you'll find anywhere else. Don't hesitate to try these. Your health can only improve .

Libido booster !

Muira puama, also called "potency wood," is a small tree up to 15 feet in height native to the Brazilian Amazon. The bark and root are the primary parts that are utilized. Indigenous peoples use muira puama for the therapy of sexual debility, fatigue, neuromuscular problems, and rheumatism. The root and bark of muira puama are rich in free long-chain fatty acids, essential oils, plant sterols, coumarin, lupeol, and an alkaloid named muirapuamine. Because of its various constituents, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact chemicals responsible for its sex boosting effects. Muira Puama is one of the most active botanicals with a long history of traditional use as an energy tonic, general health improver and remedy for impotence & sexual insufficiency. It is known in some circles as "the Viagra of the Amazon" and in fact, many people now consider it the new Yohimbe but with considerably less possible side effects. I love this product. Muira Puama is one of my favorite herbs. Nature's Answer's Muira Puama is as good a quality as I've ever tried and significantly cheaper than most other sources I've found. Muira Puama consistently gives me a wonderful lift in mood, libido, energy, and a general sense of well-being. The only negative I can say about it is that if taken daily for too long (perhaps more than 2 weeks), the effects eventually dissipate. Otherwise, I would use it every day. As it is, generally use it on weekends only to keep my tolerance down. Bear in mind that when used in high doses most common side effects is insomnia. This is because of the alertness it produces, and, logically, if you are too alert when you go to bed, you are likely to toss and turn in bed. To avoid this limit your daily intake of muira puama to one-two capsules and do not take it before bedtime. If interested in it's aphrodisiac properties, I highly recommend combining it with Catuaba Bark. They have a wonderful synergistic effect.

Helped my vision !

Purchased at iHerb

I have been taking this supplement for about a month after extensive research on PQQ's benefits and reading others interesting health reviews from taking it. I consider adding this to my diet is like adding "basic insurance" for the long run since it's regarded as an anti-aging vitamin. I didn't notice a lot of difference in energy like some people did, however this product gave me an interesting result. My eyes have been troubling me for quite some time and would easily get fatigued from extensive computer work. I would have a hard time seeing or driving at night and constantly be plagued with blurry vision for hours on end. After 2.5 weeks of 20mg/10mg alternating, I actually noticed an improvement of my vision. My guess is because the eyes use so much mitochondria and need a lot of power like the heart and brain; feeding them PQQ must be helping them reverse strain damage or even be repairing them! Colors seems brighter and when I look at something such as a digital clock, my eyes focus instantly and less strain is involved (Reducing my headaches). Who knows what they can do for you in the long term, the key to living longer perhaps? They say mitochondria is the key/spark to life. Reproducing fresh mitos might be the true fountain of youth. I say give it a try it if you're skeptical, I was. Since it is relatively new, I think we are going to see a lot more studies on the benefits of Pyrroloquinoline Quinone. It's a great product if your mitochondria have been damaged by aging. I imagine that this would be considerably more useful for older individuals. Side note - I also take LEF's CoQ10 100mg in tandem with the PQQ. CoQ10 and PQQ both are synergistic with supporting mitochondria function (published studies show that 20 mg of PQQ plus 300 mg of CoQ10 may reverse age-related cognitive decline in aging humans).

One of the BEST out there !

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

Original Idea---Kombucha from a Tea!

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

12 people found the following review helpful

This Organic Green Tea Kombucha from Yogi Tea is certainly unique. It tastes like a mixture of passion fruit, plum, ginger, and green tea. It is mild, and not bitter at all, even when you leave the tea bag in the whole time you drink the tea, as I do. Best of all, it is an easy, convenient way of benefiting from Kombucha, if you don't grow your own. I have never before obtained my Kombucha from a tea; this is a tasty way to do so. I am definitely impressed with this tea and with Yogi Teas in general. OGТ Kombucha comes with an expiration date . Yogi Tea seems to be another company that values sustainable and healthy practices. Their web site has a helpful glossary of tea ingredients and is beautifully designed, with info about each tea they make. Yogi Tea writes this on the box about the tea's benefits: "GT Kombucha is based on an ancient remedy and offers a convenient form of Kombucha designed for daily use. Legend has it that some 2,000 years ago, Kombucha originated in Russia, and from there it traveled to Japan. Since then it has been used to detoxify the body, enhance the immune system, fight fatigue and soothe an upset stomach. This special healing formula is made with OGT, which is organically grown and, unlike other green teas, has a delicate flavor with no bitterness. Green Tea has excellent antioxidant properties. To it we have added a concentrated purified extract of Kombucha-Pure(tm), which is produced without the use of refined sugar or black tea, and is made from Kombucha grown in a unique medium of 32 supporting Chinese herbs. The recipe is complemented with Organic Spearmint, which can help to relax the body and aid digestion; Organic Licorice Root (adrenal support) and Dong Quai Root(tonic) . Once the benefits of these ingredients are released by hot water, you are ready to enjoy a delicious, delightful and soothing cup of tea - and one that is naturally rich in antioxidants and other health-supporting qualities."

Almost Medicinal

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

11 people found the following review helpful

Flaxseed's latin species name, Linum usitatissimum, means "most useful." Couldn't have picked a better name myself. Flaxseed is a really useful addition to your diet. It contains alpha linolenic acid (ALA) which is an omega-3 fatty acid that helps with heath health, bone health and is an anti-inflammatory. Plus it is great for cholesterol. A study compared people with high cholesterol who added 20 grams of ground flaxseed to their diet. These people were compared to people taking a statin drug. After two months, there were significant reductions of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides in both groups. There's some evidence flaxseed can help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes. Although flaxseed contains all sorts of healthy components, it owes its healthy reputation primarily to three ingredients: * Omega-3 essential fatty acids, "good" fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s. * Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities. Flaxseed contains 75- 800 times more lignans than other plant foods * Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types So, clearly it's good for you, but lots of things are good for you. Question is, how difficult is it to add flaxseed to one's diet? This is where flaxseed distinguishes itself. Flaxseed can be sprinkled on all kinds of food. I put it on my cereal, in my smoothies, on my sandwiches, in cake and baked goods. I don't really notice it. This is where flaxseed shines, it is an invisible ingredient. Alright, so I don't notice it. How about other people? I put flaxseed to the test by sprinkling it on the cereal of a very picky 7 year old I babysit for. He ate the cereal and drank the milk without a word. Passes the test. Adding flaxseed to your diet is a no-brainer. Hope this review was helpful - enjoy.

Great combo !

Posted on Aug 31, 2012

Great product and combo! The main ingredient of this product is saw palmetto, an extract which is said to have several beneficial properties for the prostate. Some of its functions include inhibiting the alteration of testosterone to DHT which is another form of hormone that is considered to be involved in BPH development. Saw palmetto is also believed to have properties which could stimulate the normalization of urinary flow and prevents common urinary and bladder problems from recurring. The other ingredient of this product is Pygeum. A popular prostate supporter in Germany, France and Italy, pygeum's active constituents (phytosterols, pentocyclic terpenes and ferulic esters) were first investigated by scientists for their very strong prostate support functions. Pygeum also supports healthy bladder function for regular and complete urination. I bought this product, because I have suffered from prostatitus on and off for about 4 years. Antibiotics sometimes relieve the symptons and sometimes they dont. Have been taking this product for about 4 weeks now. It has definately improved my urine flow already and reduced some of the pain I have in the prostate area. Whether it will improve my condition long term, I do not know, but am happy with the results so far. You don't want to take this supplement on an empty stomach because it's a fat soluble supplement, so it will not absorb well without a little bit of fat. I recommend taking it with eggs, which contain phospholipids that enhance absorption of fat soluble nutrients. Diet is another factor that can greatly impact prostate health. You'll want to eat as much organic (preferably raw) food as possible. Foods that support prostate health include vegetables and fruits rich in vitamins, cartenoids, and lycopene. Also, limit carbohydrates like sugar, fructose, and grains as much as possible to maintain optimal insulin levels.

I have been using this product for approximately 1 yr on and off. I tried other things such as tribulus capsules and other so called testosterone boosting aids, and have had no success. This product definitely works. It is imperative however that you take it as prescribed and maintain consistency. When I first started I was conservative and started with 2 tabs then gradually went up to the recommended 4. I started to feel the positive effects after approximately 1 1/2 to 2 months. Definitely experienced more energy and strength for my workouts. Stronger erections, deeper,and multiple ejaculations. None of that rage and agitation side effects experienced with other supplements. Both my wife and I were happy and exhausted after sex. Reminded us of when we were in our 20's. I really realized how effective this supplement was when I unwittingly stopped taking it. Within a month, my energy level went down and I went back to having the old barely there single ejaculations. That obviously killed my mood as well. If you want to sustain the effects it is imperative that you remain consistent because it takes a little while (approx. 2 months) before you truly experience the effects. This isnt one of those synthetic drugs produced in a lab, so there is no immediate gratification. Must give it time to work with your bodies chemistry to increase your testosterone production. This is a phenomenal product that does exactly what it says it will do. This is now as essential a supplement as my multi vits. And it's completely harmless! Absolutely the only supplement worth taking for increasing libido. Side note: Bear in mind that it is recommended that this product be taken on a 5 days on, 2 days off cycle, and 8 weeks on 2 weeks off cycle for maximum benefits. Also, pay attention not to take too much, in order not to be too nervous.

I ordered this mushroom to help me with my immunity, but I was surprised how noticeable the benefits were in such a short period of time. I noticed a good improvement in my energy level and mental clarity. The product helps me fall asleep faster and have a better night sleep. Also, without realizing it immediately, other nice benefits have been a reduction in my stress level, I just feel happier and fresher. I love Reishi by LifeShield because is combination of mycelium, fruiting bodies, spores, and their extracellular compounds. It guarantee minimum 15% beta-glucans ! Besides, I love the fact that everything is 100% vegan and have no artificial flavors or colors. I've tried other brands of Reishi Mushrooms and this is by far the most potent brand i have ever tried. There are god knows how many studies world wide to back this up. Reishi is basically king of medicinal mushrooms. Reishi has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 4,000 years for treating fatigue, asthma, cough, and liver ailments, and to promote longevity. The Chinese name lingzhi means “herb of spiritual potency.” A Japanese name for the reishi is mannentake, meaning “10,000-year-old mushroom.” Reishi's use is documented in the oldest Chinese medical text, which is more than 2,000 years old. Furthermore, it is important to note that, it can also have a wonderful effect on your appearance because it quickens the delivery of vitamins and nutrients to the skin. Aside from that, it also prevents acne build up, and reduces fine lines and age spots. You may trying the Reishi and Cordyceps combination - Reishi strengthens the immune, while Cordyceps give you extra energy. Аlso other combinations of mushrooms are good like Shiitake, Maitake and so on. Side note: Bear in mind that Reishi mushroom seems to be able to lower blood pressure. If your blood pressure is too low, it’s best to avoid reishi mushroom .

Really works!

I have noticed a difference in a stronger immune system by staying on these, If I catch a cold or virus, I double up on my dosage and I am getting over these things alot faster than 6 months ago. I want to build my immune system up and I know I'm on the right track with these. Seems to be better quality than other brands. No side effects. I take mine before I go to bed and upon arising the next morning. Even though this supplement is a little expensive, it is well worth the cost! Boosting or offering support to our immune system is important year round, but especially during the colder, fall and winter months. From about the months of October through March, many people suffer various infections, most notably from cold and flu viruses, or bacterial throat, nose or chest infections. AHCC can also be beneficial to take anytime we are undergoing an increased amount of stress in our lives. This can be at times such as during school exams or work audits, relationship breakdowns or losing a loved one, etc. It works by stimulating our immune system to better protect itself from foreign invaders. It does this in the following 5 ways: Increasing our cytokines, which activate our immune system Increasing our NK (natural killer) cell activity, which recognize and destroy infected or abnormal cells Increasing macrophage populations, which engulf and ingest bacteria and cell debris Increasing T cell numbers, which are able to recognize previous invaders and destroy them with a specific response Increasing dendritic cell numbers, which initiate an adaptive immune response. Thanks to its early activation of the immune response, it makes us less susceptible to infections and decreases the severity of infections. Research has also found a shortened recovery time and increased rate to clear foreign invaders and survive the infection. Based on the extensive exhaustive research available I feel I can recommend this product 100%.Did this reviewer purchase this product at iHerb?
