Don't be put off by the huge price tag

I can't emphasize how important vitamin K2 is to our body. One of the main reason why I started taking K2 supplements is due to atherosclerosis(hardening of arteries walls), which can be caused by calcification of the arterial walls. Vitamin K2 is amazing simply because it can reverse the damage done by arterial calcification; vitamin K2 is used in Japan to treat severe arterial calcification. What K2 does is redirecting the calcium inside our body to the correct places ie bones instead of letting the calcium build up on the arterial walls. I can testify that after taking Thorne's vitamin K2, I felt so much better. I must admit that I am currently on a few supplements but the addition of this simply made me feel a whole lot of difference. Concerning the price tag, if you were to look at the nutrition label, each drop of liquid is worth 1mg of vitamin k2, and each bottle contains 1200 drops. Now for referencing, most vitamin K2 caps contain only 100mcg per caps. So basically just one drop of this is equivalent to 10 capsules worth of K2! My daily intake is around 9 drops, split into thrice daily(3x3drops). Something to note is that vitamin K2 does not stay long in the body so taking the dose throughout the day is actually much more beneficial for the body.

Essential supplement!

Plenty of benefits are associated with CoQ10. It is mainly known for its anti-oxidant properties as well as an energy booster. The last point is actually something you are able to feel with your body, hence also improving your quality of life! A little bit about CoQ10. It is a substance that is produced by the body. As we age, our ability to produce CoQ10 drastically decrease. Although CoQ10 can be found in animal products(mostly organ meat), we would not be getting enough without eating tons of those. This is where supplements come into play. CoQ10 is absolutely necessary for anyone on statin(cholesterol medication). Statin hinders the body's production of CoQ10. Side effect of the lowered CoQ10 level includes muscle aches and fatigues. There are virtually not side effects in taking CoQ10. It is something which I take on a daily basis and would recommend wholeheartedly.

I have used an extensive range of fish oil products since a few years back, from the 'normal' grade(30% fish oil per cap) to double strength and eventually pharmaceutical grade. The price increase is not linear as the purity of the caps increases. Let me tell you this. Getting sufficient EPA/DHA is more important than popping a high purity pill. As an example, the cost of one 90% purity capsule(example Omegavia - 35usd for 60caps)works out to be 58cents. Based on the nutrition label, the amount of omega 3s is around 1105mg. Similarly, one teaspoon of Nature's Answer contains around 1150mg of omega 3. Not forgetting one bottle contains 96 servings. $12.95 for 96 servings VS $35 for 60 servings. This is a no brainer purchase. The only reason I can think of people favoring the capsules over liquid form is 1)The convenience that capsule provides(bringing it wherever you go) 2)Enteric coating on some capsules to prevent fishy burps So far, I have yet to experience any fishy burps whatsoever. People might be turned off by the taste of liquid fish oil. But worry not! There is not one bit of fishy taste to this product. I highly recommend this wonderful omega3 product. Do not pay more than what you should!

You have no idea how powerful this product is!

Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidant found inside every single cell of one's body. The liver is one of the most important organ in the body as it carries out detoxification processes. Needless to say, the liver contains lots of glutathione and uses those during detoxification. Alcohol consumption(leading to high level of toxicity within the body) can cause the rapidly depletion of glutathione. What milk thistle does is enhances the regeneration of liver cells which prevents the depletion of glutathione levels inside the liver. Some pain around the abdomen may be experienced during the initial stage of taking milk thistle. I suspect this could be due to the milk thistle working its magic on my damaged liver. The pain is nothing compared to the health of one's liver and should subside within a couple of days.

Powerful Antioxidant!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 20, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Let's face it. The price for this product ain't cheap. $28 for 50 capsules? Thats like one and two third of a month. But take a closer look at the nutritional label(heck even the title is sufficient). That's 12mg of astaxanthin PER capsule. And that is easily 3 times as much astaxanthin as compared to what other products offer. Another thing to note is that Nutrex's astaxanthin is extracted from microalgae instead of being synthetically created. If you've read up on astaxanthin, you will definitely know that it is one of the most powerful antioxidant available. For those who don't know, antioxidants are what keeps the body healthy and functioning by fighting against free radicals and slowing down the oxidation process. Do give this supplement a go. Chances are you will be coming back for more!

Competitively priced!

This is not a miracle pill. Supplements are, like the name suggests just supplements. That said, Spirulina is not something you absolutely need to have in your daily diet. It is however something good to have. I have made changes to my daily such as changing my diet, leading a more active lifestyle and finally, introducing supplements into my diet. I must say I am feeling rejuvenated. No longer am I that tired. This could be due to my weight-loss, my strengthened body, the supplements or all 3. I am more convinced that all this goodness is due to all 3 changes working synergistically. Grab a bottle now and try it. I took a leap and faith with the 720 capsules bottle and never looked back. You can always go for the smaller quantities on your first try. Good luck with the results!!!

Why bother taking Vitamin D3 when it can be obtained naturally with our body

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 20, 2014 | Verified Purchase

There is some truth in my product review title. In layman term, Vitamin D3 is produced when our skin reacts to the sunlight shining upon it. Sounds easily obtainable right? However this is strictly subjected to ones living environment, work environment and strangely enough, the tone of their skin colours. Supposedly 1)one were to live close to either extremes of the hemisphere, they would be subjected to zero sunlight for months; 2)one were to have a deskbound job, his exposure to sunlight would be greatly reduced; 3)one were to have dark skin tones, his body would not be able to absorb as much sunlight and thus produce far lesser vitamin D3. This is where supplements come into play. On average, a healthy adult should hsve somewhere between 4000IU-8000IU of vitamin D3(based on collected datas). Vitamin D3 is essential for many body functions including boosting of our immune system and fighting off cancers, tumor and heart disease. D3(used along with calcium) also helps in strengthening our bones and teeth. 5000mg is a pretty safe figure, give and take the amount needed by one on a daily basis. Do note that D3 and calcium should be used in tandem with vitamin K2 to maximise ones health benefits. I highly recommend this cheap and affordable way of obtaining your daily dose of D3!

Magnesium is an important mineral that the current generation is sorely lacking in(due to industrial agriculture but we won't be going into that). Magnesium deficiency does not necessary come with any serious telling signs. Also, magnesium deficiency might not cause any serious problems in your life. What you must know is this. Having adequate amount of magnesium can greatly improve your quality of life. The improvement varies among people but the general consensus is you will feel a difference. At this point of the article if you're thinking of trying out magnesium, this is the best product available. Magnesium supplements exist in many forms and the chelated variant(Magnesium glycinate) is the form that is most readily absorbed by the body. Please avoid the oxide variant if you wish to get the health benefits of magnesium without the side effects(it is poorly absorbed by the body and may act as a laxative). I hope this review will help you make an informed decision.

My first glucosamine product!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 19, 2014 | Verified Purchase

It all started with a dull sensation around the knee cap. As the months go by, eventually a clicking sound could be heard. The wake up call was when a sharp pain shot through my knee. I know something has to be done. Doctor's best concoction is a mixture of glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM. These 3 elements work synergistically with one another. Glucosamine to repair the damaged cartilage, chondroitin to lubricate the joint area and MSM to strengthen the joint area. My recommendation would be to follow the guideline on the nutrition label. That means 2 capsules twice a day. There is improvement but it is not very significant. However, this is also not a miracle pill and we should not expect results overnight. I believe besides popping the pills, we have to be responsible enough to do something about our existing conditions - be it to lose weight, change our diet, getting more exercise into our life etc. That said, this is an excellent product with virtually no side-effects experienced.
