Both my husband and I have noticed a downturn in our health since taking these supplements for several weeks. Just discovered that Calcium Carbonate is insoluble and can actually cause joint problems which we are both suddenly experiencing. It puts a strain on the kidneys. Magnesium Oxide is a laxative. There are 800 mg in this tablet. Really disappointed in NOW, their supplements are usually very good :(

My husband and I both noticed that this produce would give us cramps and frequent trips to the bathroom. Not experienced with other brands. I think it may have to do with Planetary Herbals formulations, with the addition of modified cellulose gum, stearic acid, microcrystalline cellulose, silica, and magnesium stearate. The Triphala tablets from the same company also causes the same effect, strangely enough.

Benefitted from this initially, but then noticed hardly any effect except the more than occasional runny tummy. Did some in-depth research on Reishi: the mycelium is not traditionally used for therapeutic effects in Asian countries, but is really a Western concoction. Apparently it is mushroom spawn (white fluffy stuff) that is really easy to grow on rice (which is part of the ingredients) in polythene bags, not on wood. Also, apparently Reishi is meant to be extracted in order to be of benefit. This is just ground up mushroom mulch. The real effective Reishi costs 10X more. Reishi spore oil is the topmost quality available of this herb. That will hopefully be my next buy.

Neem is an extremely powerful herb. Extremely pungent and dark green in colour. This is colourless and practically odourless. It won't solve a fungal problem. It's nice as a lip salve. This is a lovely formulation of natural oils and beeswax, which is why I gave it 2 stars. However, there is barely any neem extract in this formulation. Useless. Luckily, I happened to have some neem powder on hand. Added a few teaspoons and mixed it in. Now we're talking :)

This did not help me, just made me run for the bathroom a couple of hours after I took a capsule or two. I did some research and realized that Yucca Extract (tincture) is the real deal, this is just waste powder. Standardized extract contains over 85% bio-available saponins versus only 3% to 7% left in waste powder. Don't waste your time!

This information is not disclosed in the product description here on iHerb, but only in fine print on the back of the label. Only realized once I ordered it. "Other ingredients: Hydroxypropyl methyl-cellulose, L-Leucine. Contains Egg and Shellfish (shrimp, crab and lobster)." So if you're allergic to shellfish - many of us are - or are dedicated to a vegan diet - AVOID! I've decided to take it anyway as I'm desperate to alleviate my asthma. But with some trepidation. UPDATE: I TOOK THIS PRODUCT FOR 2 DAYS. MY ASTHMA GOT WORSE! I WOKE UP FEELING EXHAUSTED. BRAIN FOG. HEADACHES. EMPTIED THE REMAINING CAPSULES INTO THE FIREPLACE THIS MORNING. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.

So gentle and calming. Put it on my eyelids before sleep. Just a drop. Also, in my belly button for pain.

I love ear candles, but these aren't made right. The 100% paraffin and bees wax candles don't leave any residue. Whatever is left inside the candle came from your ear. However, these drip wax back inside the candle. At first, I thought I had extracted a humungous amount of wax from my ear. My husband was skeptical, and burnt one without inserting it into anyone's ear. SURPRISE! It was full of waxy residue. I tried them again, and they dripped hot wax on my eyebrow and hand. It even felt as if a bit of hot wax had dripped into my ear. I examined the candle after it finished burning, and indeed the inside plastic neck was half filled with candle wax. So there is a good chance wax did drip back. At the very least, the excess candle wax stopped the extraction from occurring. Do not buy.

Intense pineapple taste. Melts in the mouth. Reordering.
