One of the best antt-stress supplements I have ever tried,

Posted by iHerb Customer on Aug 21, 2012 | Verified Purchase

This supplement makes a huge difference in my mood and stress levels. I have a stressful job and work long hours. Within 2 hours of taking this I feel as if nothing can bother me and have a generally happy and positive mood, even if 2 hours ago I wanted to rip someone's head off. In fact, the more stress I am under the better it seems to work. I usually take 2 capsules at a time. I sometimes take 3 if I need to relax more. I took 4 once and it made me too sedated to get any work done. Everyone's body is different but I noticed a difference from the first time I took it. At least one reviewer here seems to have had a negative reaction to it, so I definitely recommend starting with just one pill.

Thanks for your feedback!

Delicious and keeps me from getting hungry

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 03, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I love coconut. I take these at work in between meals for extra energy and to satisfy any hunger cravings. I usually just chew them because I love the taste! If you want a convenient way to take coconut oil this is it!

Helps me sleep better and feel more refreshed in the morning.

This is a replenishment formula, not an "energy formula". Stress and stimulants such as coffee or energy drinks drain your body of it's energy reserves. Eventually they will cause burnout if you don't give your body a chance to recover. This formula helps your body relax and recover, allowing your body to replenish those energy reserves. I take this before going to sleep. I sleep better and feel more refreshed in the morning.

It works!

What else can i say. This product works. You can feel a difference immediately. I usually take 5 at a time. I've also tried the Natural Factors brand which is just as good. The difference is that the Jarrow tablets are a bit harder and take longer to dissolve, but they won't break apart as much if you are carrying the bottle around with you. The Natural Factors brand are softer and dissolve much faster, but will also crumble more if you carry the bottle around with you in a gym bag etc. Both are good, just depends on your needs.

Product Changed - now made of thinner plastic

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 03, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Like many products lately, the quality has been lowered to cut costs. These bags used to be made of a thicker plastic that was stiffer and more durable. They are now made with a thinner plastic just a bit thicker than what you find in a sandwich bag. I'm only taking off 1 star because the product is only 2 dollars and the bags still work. However, I will look for a different brand next time even if costs a few dollars more.

Amazing!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 05, 2012 | Verified Purchase

This product is the most effective supplement that I have ever tried for reducing blood sugar. Usually, whenever I eat high carbohydrate foods like bread, pasta or rice I can feel my blood pressure skyrocket and I get very tired. If I take 3 of these before a carb-heavy meal I feel perfectly fine afterwards, just like I when I was in my early twenties. I have tried ALA/RLA and other blood-sugar supplements, but none are as effective as this. It is expensive but in this case you do get what you pay for. One word of caution. This supplement is effective, but if you really over-do it with a huge high-carb meal you will still feel the insulin spike, though it will be delayed by several hours.

Thanks for your feedback!

Really Works!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 05, 2012 | Verified Purchase

It takes a few hours to notice the effects (for me anyway) but it really does reduce stress. I felt like nothing could bother me and generally very happy. It's too bad that they have discontinued it, though I suppose you could buy the same ingredients individually. I'm hoping that Metagenics introduces something similar.

Formula changed after corporate takeover in 2017. New formula doesn't work - don't waste your money.

Posted by iHerb Customer on Aug 21, 2012 | Verified Purchase

There was a corporate buyout. The new parent company is trying to cut costs and maximize profits. This product has been changed. The new formula doesn't work - don't waste your money. I wondered, why would a company that was dedicated to producing the purest and most potent cordyceps sinensis on the market, change their product? Well, because it is not the some company anymore. They were purchased by American Botanicals LLC in Feb. 2017. This new formula is not potent or effective. The old formula was pure cordyceps sinensis. The new formula is a blend of c. sinensis and c. militaris. The actual amounts of each are not even listed since the manufacturer chooses to hide it as a "proprietary formula". I suspect it is mostly militaris now, which is why they are hiding the amounts. It's also more expensive now. So you are paying more for an inferior product. The new parent company obviously only cares about maximizing the profits of their investment, even if they do it by making inferior products. From Bloomberg: " As of February 18, 2017, Aloha Medicinals, Inc. operates as a subsidiary of American Botanicals LLC." Quote from an employee on yelp: "One of the worst places to work. Was a great place before it was bought out by American botanicals....Before the corporate buy out it was a great place with great pay and benefits. Now it the least paying factory job in carson city with the worst benefits." The original Aloha Medicinals is gone. (RIP) It's time to find another source of Cordyceps Sinensis!

From grass-fed New Zealand cows!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 24, 2013 | Verified Purchase

Not only does it taste great, but this has to be one of the healthiest milk-based proteins available! I wish I could give them 10 stars! Round of applause to bluebonnet for using only grass fed cows which are not treated with hormones or antibiotics. If some of you are wondering why they use cows from New Zealand, it is because New Zealand has the most pristine natural environment on the planet.
