Hi all, as an orthomolecular therapist and a passionate cooking teacher, I am very interested in food and dietary supplements, especially now that I am diagnosed with chronic Lyme Disease (after being misdiagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrom and MS in the past).
Garden of Life RAW probiotics, Ultimate Care is the best! I tried 5 other brands without any noticeable results, but this product does what it should do: it gives me better bowel movement, better skin, better mood, less allergic reactions, less fatigue. I live in the Netherlands. As you can read in the description, thos highly perishable product should be shipped on ice, which is not possible for shipments outside the US. I took the risk, the package reached me after 3 days. I am aware that the guaranteed 100 billion probiotics might have reduced to half, but the product still does the trick better than any other product and I am very thankful that I found it. As soon as it is in stock again, I will reorder.
Since the capsules are quite big, I tried to open them and to dissolve them in some water. Real pure MSM dissolves completely and the water becomes clear after dissolving. Now MSM doesn´t dissolve even after stirring a long time. A lot of stuff (the added fillers) float at the top and form lumps. Conclusion: it is not that pure. BTW, there are worse brands! I don´t need that much, so for me it is ok, but if you really are in pain, suffering from arthritis, FM, or severe inflammations, I would advice you to consider another brand. Maybe more expensive, but also more effective.

Tried other products with caprilic acid against candida overgrowth. They worked, but slowly. I noticed an instant improvement with this monolaurin. Less tired, no flatulence, no pain.

I am very disappointed. Loved the 100% coconut wraps, but now the recipe is new and "improved". Unfortunately I have allergies for sunflower butter and oil, apple cider vinegar and psyllium. These wraps are no option for me anymore. My husband didn't like the new flavour at all. Myself, I tried a tiny little piece and think they are sweeter than before. We want the old Paleo wraps back!
The keyword in my fight against Lyme disease and HPU is detoxing.... I have been using the kidney cleanse for 1 week (taking twice a day one capsule instead of the recommended 3 times 2) and already after 2 days my urin was clear instead of cloudy, the doctor measured less blood in my urin after a week and my backpain disappeared. I do recommend the product, but use it wisely in consultation with your doctor, since already a small dose may cause huge effects.

I suffer from a lot of food intolerances, which causes blisters, inflammation and Aphthous stomatitis. Nothing helped until I tried Hyaluronic Acid. All problems disappear completely in 3 days with this product. Iam really happy!
I always carry this tiny little bottle around in my handbag. It is very effective to cure fungal infections on the skin and eczema and it keeps the mosquitos away.

My brother's knee surgery was already scheduled. Then a friend told us about Solgar No. 7. My brother decided to give it a try. After about 5 weeks the pain was gone. The doctor told him there was no need for surgery anymore. When he stops taking it, the pain comes back.

In an attempt to reduce the intake of additives in supplements like magnesium stearate, stearic acid, dicalcium phosphate, maltodextrin and cellulose, I use this magnesium, which is pure, beside some unharmful citric acid. The quality is good, it works instantly, but the taste (in water) is dreadful. Be brave and swallow it quickly, at least you have a pure product, no unhealthy artificial flavour!
We have been using this product for over a year. We choosed it, because theoratically this one is the best for the lowest price. But recently we had the impression it didn´t work that well anymore. Maybe they changed something? Before it was great, both for my partner´s heart, my energy level and my moms periodontal disease. Now, the difference between taking it and not taking it is very small.
