► A Star Product, A Well-Formulated Fairly Priced AHA Lotion

Posted by 3827GreenWood on Dec 14, 2013

This is a Star Product for those who are looking for a well-formulated AHA lotion. With 5% glycolic acid plus lower amounts of the lesser-known AHA ingredients lactic and malic acids, all formulated at an effective pH level of 3. IMHO, this product is a great exfoliant especially for those with normal to dry, sun-damaged skin. It contains antioxidants and a dry skin-friendly mix of emollients, while the fragrance from lemon extract is subtle. In many respects, the antioxidants chosen have very reliable scientific records when it comes to their skin-care benefits. Those antioxidants are essential to stimulate healthy collagen production. Packaging is correct for this product as air-tight packaging is critical to ingredient efficacy and stability, and antioxidants deteriorate in the presence of air. It is very normal to experience a small amount of tingling. It dissipated quickly and stop altogether with ongoing use. Within a few weeks of applications, my skin experiences renewed texture, color and tone, as well as a reduction in the appearance of sun damage and fine lines. Taking everything into account, I highly recommend this high performance cost-effective product. I am a strong advocate on scientific medical research and evidence-based information, and constantly want to differentiate between marketing hyperbole and real world effects. I hope you'll find my review Helpful to you. Best wishes and good health to everyone!

► All is Good BUT This is NOT a Non-GMO Vitamin C Product !

Posted by 3827GreenWood on Nov 29, 2013

All is good with this Vitamin C product offered by Now Foods, except it is NOT a Non-GMO product. It means, this is a Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) product. If you take a Vitamin C supplement with Ascorbic Acid and you guessed it, you are likely consuming a supplement with GMO origins, unless the corn was certified organic. The main source for Ascorbic Acid or Vitamin C is corn which extensively corrupt material made by Monsanto and others. In fact, 98% of corn crops are GMO tainted. Regarding the taste, with the pH level in the range of 2.5 to 3, it's in the range of strong Acidic level and one can definitely expect a strong sour taste on this product as no sweetener/flavouring ingredient is added. Alkaline tastes a bit bitter in general. If you are looking for something Non-GMO Vitamin C product, this will not suit you. I am a strong advocate on scientific medical research and evidence-based information, and constantly want to differentiate between marketing hyperbole and real world effects.

► A Cost-Effective Supplement For Many Great Health Benefits !

Posted by 3827GreenWood on Nov 13, 2013

If there's only one supplement you're taking for your health and your diet is decent, it should probably be Vitamin D. I highly recommend taking Vitamin D instead of a multivitamin most of the time. The standard supplement is Vitamin D3, otherwise known as cholecalciferol. Vitamin D3 tends to be better absorbed than other forms of Vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential vitamin known as the sunlight vitamin, due to synthesis occurring in the skin from the sun's radiation. It has a multitude of benefits to the body including supporting bone structure, mood state, and is generally seen as healthy and anticancer. The RDA for vitamin D is currently set at 400-800IU/day, but this is likely too low for adults. The safe upper limit in the United States is currently defined as 2,000IU/day, and in Canada it's 4,000IU/day. However, research suggests that the true safe upper limit is 10,000IU/day. Supplemental vitamin D is implicated in wide-ranging benefits, such as increasing cognition, immune health, bone health, and well-being; reducing the risks of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis; and increasing testosterone levels in deficient populations. This product by 21st Century Health Care offers a cost-effective supplement for the benefits mentioned above. Taking everything into account, I highly recommend this high quality product. I hope you'll find my review helpful to you.

► One of The Best AHA Products ! Oil-Free, Fragrance Free, Well Worth The Money !

Posted by 3827GreenWood on Dec 28, 2013

This Oil-Free Formula features 10% glycolic acid at a pH of 4 in a lightweight gel base that is indeed oil-free and fragrance free. It has the correct ph of 4 for proper exfoliation. This is an excellent product for those seeking an AHA product with oily to very oily skin as well as as acne prone skin. Others will notice your nice clear glowing skin for the first time ever. The peeling is light, it doesn't clog pores, erases fine lines and regular use prevents most acne. It also helps to improve the appearance of scar and hyperpigmentation. I like how light it is and how it absorbs without being sticky or tacky. The color of my skin is better and it looks more "alive" and healthier. I wouldn't be without it. Love it. Kudos to Alpha Hydrox for supplying AHA product that really work. Affordably priced and readily available. Taking everything into account, I highly recommend this high quality cost-effective product. I am a strong advocate on scientific medical research and evidence-based information, and constantly want to differentiate between marketing hyperbole and real world effects.

► All is Good BUT This is NOT a Non-GMO Vitamin C Product !

Posted by 3827GreenWood on Nov 29, 2013

This Calcium Ascorbate product offered by Now Foods combines Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) with Calcium Carbonate. Calcium Ascorbate is a form of Vitamin C which is much more readily absorbed in the blood stream than the other forms of calcium. Importantly, Calcium is coupled with Vitamin C to deliver the benefits of both Calcium & Vitamin C. All is good with this Vitamin C product except it is NOT a Non-GMO product. It means, this is a Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) product. If you take a Vitamin C supplement with Ascorbic Acid and you guessed it, you are likely consuming a supplement with GMO origins, unless the corn was certified organic. The main source for Ascorbic Acid or Vitamin C is corn which extensively corrupt material made by Monsanto and others. In fact, 98% of corn crops are GMO tainted. Regarding the taste, with the pH level in the range of 7 to 7.5, it's pH neutral, very gentle to stomach and basically almost tasteless when mixed in water with no sweetener/flavouring ingredient added. This product is suitable for those who are sensitive to strong acidic or have gastric irritation. However, if you are looking for something Non-GMO Vitamin C product, this will not suit you. I am a strong advocate on scientific medical research and evidence-based information, and constantly want to differentiate between marketing hyperbole and real world effects.

► One of The Most Effective & Best Milk Thistle Supplements For All Natural Liver Support !

Posted by 3827GreenWood on Nov 13, 2013

This product by Now Foods is one of the most effective milk thistle supplements in the market for all-natural liver support. As a premier liver tonic, Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) delivers a natural flavonoid complex known as Silymarin, which has unique protective benefits for liver tissues. Researchers have identified one constituent of Silymarin, Silibin, as the most biologically active. Unfortunately, Silymarin, and even more Silybin, have a poor intestinal absorption, that limits their benefits. That's where Siliphos comes in. This advanced milk thistle supplement uses patented Phytosome technology to bind Silybin to natural soy phospholipids (Non-GMO) for enhanced bioavailability. I'm aware that several clinical studies have shown that Siliphos is 4-8 times more bioavailable than conventional milk thistle extracts. With that, it allows 4-8 times greater absorption of the key healing element of the milk thistle into the blood steam where it can do its good work. Through my own research, the patented Phytosome technology is actually owned by a large and well-known Italian firm named Indena. Indena is the world's leading company in the identification, development and production of active principles derived from plants, for use in the pharmaceutical, health-food and personal care industries. We all have great affections on natural products and the healing power of herbs, but as we also know, poor bioavailability in natural ingredients is a well-known issue for years and different strategies have been developed by researchers to ameliorate the absorption. The effectiveness of any herbal supplement (even medication) is soley dependent upon delivering an effective level of the active compounds. For milk thistle, this means delivering an effective level of Silybin. It only makes sense that if you can increase the absorption and utilization of these components that you will see better results. The patented Phytosome process ensures the vital link between bioflavonoid and bioavailability takes place before the herbal supplement or herbal extract is taken into the body, improving absorption, increasing biological availability, and enhancing delivery to the tissues. Researches have shown that an herbal Phytosome is more biologically active; therefore, it provides all the benefits of botanicals at reduced dosage. It also means we get more bangs for bucks! As demonstrated by a number of pharmacokinetic studies in comparison with free Silybin and Silymarin, Siliphos represents the most absorbable form of Silybin known until now. It's great to be able to get Siliphos at a super competitive price here in iHerb. If you're looking to use a top-notch quality with most potent and purest milk thistle supplement for support of healthy liver enzymes, this supplement has no equal. I am very happy with the results. I have not missed a day of taking this product and have been feeling Great-Great-Great! This product comes with 90 veggie caps per bottle. If you take 3 capsules per day, that will lasts for 30 days. I will suggest 3 caps per day for 3 months for intensive repair, detox and healing, and then 2 caps per day for maintenance in which one bottle can lasts for 45 days. Do remember to take supplement at least 30mins before each meal. Taking everything into account, I highly recommend this high quality product. I hope you'll find my review helpful to you.

L-OptiZinc ► The Only High Potency Zinc Supplement FDA Approved Safe For Human Nutrition

Posted by 3827GreenWood on Nov 13, 2013

L-OptiZinc is the only high-potency zinc supplement FDA approved safe for human nutrition. L-OptiZinc is also an approved form of zinc for use in the EU in food supplements. In general, zinc is an essential mineral involved in regulating a large amount of enzymes in the body. It is known as an antioxidant and immune boosting supplement, and is most commonly supplemented to reduce the frequency of sickness and to support optimal testosterone levels. Zinc is highly involved in many enzyme systems in the body. Keeping normal zinc levels helps with the maintenance of these enzyme systems and acts as a hormonal and immune system aid. High dose zinc in response to the common cold (not taken preventatively, but only at the onset of sickness) appears to be effective in reducing the duration and severity of sickness. Zinc is also known to be circulating at lower levels in persons with acne relative to those without, and it is thought to be therapeutic by reducing the migration of immune cells to the skin and possibly reducing the effects of androgens on the skin. A number of trials using zinc for acne control note that standard to high supplemental dosages have a modest protective effect. L-OptiZinc is a forms of methionine-bound zinc that increase the bioavailability of zinc. Methionine is the amino acid best absorbed by the body. L-OptiZinc is standardized to 20% zinc, consists of zinc bound to the more bioavailable "L" form of methionine. Some preclinical studies show that L-OptiZinc is absorbed better, retained longer and are more effective than other zinc supplements tested. Taking everything into account, I highly recommend this high quality product manufactured by Now Foods with reasonable price offered by iHerb. A single dose per day is what you need. I hope you'll find my review helpful to you. I am a strong advocate on scientific medical research and evidence-based information, and constantly want to differentiate between marketing hyperbole and real world effects.

► High Potency & Cost Effective - I Highly Recommend This High Quality Product !

Posted by 3827GreenWood on Dec 15, 2013

This product by Prolab has high potency of 200mg Caffeine and 75mg Calcium in it. The best part is, it is very cost effective. As it is in tablet form, you can easily split/cut the tablet to 1/2 or 1/4 if you find the dosage of a single full tablet of 200mg is too high or you simply want to try and adjust the dosage slowly depending on how your body responds. This is extremely useful and crucial for those who are new to high dosage of Caffeine supplement and building body tolerance as to minimize the side effects of Caffeine including palpitation, headache and rising blood pressure. Choose your Caffeine dosage carefully and see how it works for you. Caffeine itself is an incredibly well researched topic in medical science field. Caffeine is a potent stimulant and typically used as a standard due to its social renown. Caffeine has the mechanisms to increase metabolic rate and fat loss. Best usage for caffeine as a stimulant for weight loss should be in conjunction with caloric deficits. Caffeine also appears to work similar in cognitive stress as it does in physical stress, augmenting a stress-induced spike in cortisol concentrations. In regards to Caffeine's stimulatory properties, dosages are highly variable and best evaluated with one's own experience. If you have never used caffeine supplements before, it is best to start in the lowest possible dosage and work upwards. Taking everything into account, I highly recommend this high quality product. I am a strong advocate on scientific medical research and evidence-based information, and constantly want to differentiate between marketing hyperbole and real world effects. I hope you'll find my review Helpful to you. Best wishes and good health to everyone!
