Excellent for the Liver

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 12, 2016 | Verified Purchase

I had a swollen liver and backed up gallbladder. I took different herbs, mainly Herb Pharm's Stone Breaker formula (AMAZING) and Chanca Piedra to clear up my gallbladder and Now Foods' Double Strength Silymarin. I took the stone breaking herbs for about three weeks before starting on my liver cleanse. My chronic, moderate gallbladder was reduced in three days and 70% gone by three weeks. At this time I started into Now Foods' Silymarin. Right away (40 minutes or so) I could hear my liver gurgling a bit and within two days my swollen liver of the past seven or so months was greatly reduced in size. Fast forward to the end of the bottle, my liver seemed to be fully back to normal, my energy levels were up by about 30% compared to before and my chronic back ache that was there for years was gone, gone, GONE. I could also again eat peanuts again for the first time in years without getting a HUGE, live 300 to 700 pimple outbreak on my back. As is, I use peanuts as my liver test. If I eat a bag and I get the odd pimple, it's time to go back and use Silymarin and other herbs to clean things up again.

Energy Level through the Roof!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 12, 2016 | Verified Purchase

So far the single biggest WOW product I've tried on iHerb. Within 35 to 40 seconds my head started to feel clearer and more alert and by 15 minutes, better than any nootropic product I've tried by far. Within two hours I'm riding this high energy wave non-stop, doing practically double more than I usually do in the same amount of time and five hours post (as I write this), I'm still flying. I've only tried two other superfood products: MRM's Global Green and Paradise Herb's ORAC-Energy Greens. Of those two, MRM Global Greens is about 25 to 30% as good as this, however it's also only about 25 to 30% of the price so they're about parity for bang for the buck. Unfortunately, Paradise Herb's ORAC-Energy Greens just doesn't make the cut compared to Tonic Alchemy (TA is cloud 9 vs. how you feel after a quick 5 to 10 minute meditation break on ORAC-Energy Greens). UPDATE: I had a crash post for about 4-5 hours (two hours after I wrote the original review). First time I've EVER had a crash from a herbal product. That said, energy levels were mildly boosted for about two days post. When I buy the full-sized container, will cut the dosage in half. This stuff is the real deal.

Great for wood, energy & grey hair

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 28, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I bought this to help restore my hair. In that department, it's only helped a little at two capsules per day. However, I noticed an immediate energy boost that lasts a good 8 to 10 hours post taking (it's not crazy big, but noticeable). I also noticed that my libido went up, along with something else going up far too often. It's practically at teenage levels with other synergistic herbs being involved. As for gray hair, I've noticed between 1/3rd to 1/2 of my gray hairs return to their original colour. As for the taste, I broke a capsule and it tastes much stronger/better than another brand I was using before. Would recommend this brand wholeheartedly.

Well worth the money

Posted by iHerb Customer on Sep 14, 2015 | Verified Purchase

This is the cheapest d-biotin available on iHerb for vegetarians. d-biotin is the only biotin readily used by the body. You may obtain about the same amount of d-biotin from a 10,000 mcg source that doesn't specify that it's d-biotin. (50% of the isomer will be in the d-biotin form, the other 50% in the non-biouseable form). However, I don't like to overload my body with non-redily biouseable forms of supplements as you'll either clog things up cellularly (things will be sluggish) or you'll just end up feeding the other 50% to the bacteria in your gut who will happily break the non-useable form into lunch.

Helpful but needs to be reformulated

Posted by iHerb Customer on May 24, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I've been using Shen Min's DHT Blocker for about 18 months now. After 18 months of use, I saw a little improvement in my finger and toenails, however, I saw little improvement with my hair. By itself, it was not enough to do pretty much anything barring slowing down the rate of hair loss (I ran out a few times and immediately would notice an increase in hair loss within 5 to 7 days of being without it). When combined with other products, I did notice a minor gradual return of my hair, but would notice my hair again falling out within a week of being out of this product. Qualms: It's a bit pricey compared to other products, they also need to ditch some of the Saw Palmetto and replace it with Stinging Nettle which is better at blocking DHT in hair cells from personal experience (saw hundreds of new hairs growing within two weeks of adding stinging nettle and the pygeum bark to my regime). Overall, I'm ditching this product due to the price and lack of the other herb. However, it is a quality product and the third best DHT blocker that I've tried and the only one with Fo Ti (He Shou Wu). If Shen Min ever reformulates it to include the other herb and lowers the price a bit, I'll be back.

Amazing Flavour

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 02, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I bought this to help with my hair loss (pumpkin seed oil is supposed to help moderate DHT). I'm not sure if it helped much, but hands down this is the best tasting oil I've ever tasted in my life. Had to try very hard not to just drink it like candy and instead treat it as the once a day supplement as planned. The amazing flavour lasted for about two months in my fridge before dropping off to pleasant. I also gave some to my brother and he was also blown away by the flavour. Would buy again, except I'm switching hair loss strategies to stinging nettle as for the first time ever I'm seeing literally 1000s of thin vellus hairs in my bald widow's peak that I haven't seen since high school (a few have thickened into long regular hairs, but most are just thin, short and wispy).

An Amazing Tea

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 10, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I normally wait 3 to 18 months before reviewing a product so that I have a firm grasp on it. This one though is amazing. Hands down the BEST herbal tea I've tried. Been less than a week since I bought it and I'm having to hold myself back from burning through the box. The taste is strongly herbal and nicely pleasant if you like herby things. I bought a different brand's herbal detox tea (it worked also), but I have to add at least four of their tea bags to vaguely match the strength of this single tea bag. (Probably would have to add 7 or 8, but you can only fit so many tea bags in one big tea cup). I feel a positive uplift in energy and peace throughout the day, but most pronounced about 45 minutes to 3 hours after drinking. Will definitely reorder, but one of my girlfriends found the taste to be just too strong and had to sip it lightly.

Good for Hair/Helps the Prostate

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 05, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I bought this along with Doctor's Best Comprehensive Prostate Formula to help restore my hair. They were the first two products to show any hair restoration abilities (hundreds and hundreds of new tiny vellus hairs in places that were as bald as a cue ball for at least a decade). The only new addition in this product compared to others that I had taken before was the addition of Stinging Nettle Root. I don't have any prostate issues at present, but my Uncle's problems completely cleared up after I gave him half a bottle of both these products and my brother's urinary issue also cleared up (I gave him the other halves). However, I will not be ordering again, as I've found another product that is very Nettle Root heavy, yet still covers the other bases (but lighter). Careful with Saw Palmetto, don't go above the recommended amount on the package and if trying to restore your hair, try Nettles first as I found Saw Palmetto only ever helped with hair fall, but no new regrowth.

Alert but peaceful

Posted by iHerb Customer on Sep 14, 2015 | Verified Purchase

A fairly tasty tea. (What you love to eat or drink is usually what your body needs unless candida and other parasites have hijacked you). Combined this with Nature's Answer and found the combination to help keep me alert, yet peaceful with a mild energy boost.

Thanks for your feedback!

Tastes great!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 02, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Excellent cheap source of B12. Tastes great, but very sweet. My only complaint is I think they recommend too much B12 as a daily intake, so I reduced it to about 1/5th the recommended amount. I noticed my strange nerve tingles that would happen every few weeks disappeared.
