Helps with leg cramps, suitable for vegans

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 07, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I really like Now Foods, they make good products for an affordable price. Their magnesium citrate really helps me with muscle pain from fibromyalgia, and at very high doses (3-4 grams) it works well as a safe laxative. Please ignore the one-star review at the top of the page. There are lots of things that can be used as effective toilet cleaners that are safe to consume - vinegar and bicarb come to mind. If citric acid was dangerous, then none of us would eat oranges, lemons and grapefruit, blueberries, tomatoes or pineapple. Magnesium citrate is perfectly safe, and studies have shown that it's one of the most bio-available form of magnesium (the other is magnesium gluconate). It's also been shown to help prevent the formation of kidney stones. Magnesium citrate is both affordable and well absorbed, which makes it an excellent way to take magnesium if you require supplementation.

Excellent product for people with malabsorption or poor intestinal health

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 07, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Bicarbonate of soda is naturally released by your pancreas when food enters your small intestine. The bicarb serves three purposes - it neutralises the acid from your stomach, it aids with absorption of nutrients, and it gives your entire digestive tract a good cleaning. It's thought that the cleaning effect of bicarb aids in the production of good bacteria in your large intestine too. I have a pancreatic disorder which means both my enzyme production and bicarb production are impaired. I have to take pancreatic enzyme supplements in order to absorb food properly. I read a study of people with pancreatitis which found that pancreatic enzyme supplements were much more effective at digesting food when taken with enteric-coated bicarb. This was the only brand I could find that is actually enteric-coated, and I must say I'm impressed. It's done an excellent job. I absorb nutrients much better now, I can eat a wider range of foods without symptoms, my overall digestive health has improved, and I have a lot less cramping and pain. If you need to take enzymes, you have malabsorption issues, you have poor intestinal health or you have bacterial overgrowth, I'd highly recommend these tablets. They're completely safe and make a great adjunct to other digestive treatments. The one drawback of these tablets is that they contain titanium dioxide. I really wish they didn't, as it's a possible carcinogen. Pro-tip: Take the tablet at the beginning of the meal, with the first mouthful of food. That way when your food and other supplements reach your digestive tract it will already be full of bicarb and primed for absorption of nutrients.

Good job of cleaning, bad if you're chemically sensitive

Posted by iHerb Customer on Aug 01, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I have MCSS, and I find some of the Ecover products are fine, while others make me sick. This toilet bowl cleaner has a strong smell. It's not as bad as a regular toilet cleaner, but some of the ingredients make it unsuitable for chemically-sensitive individuals.

Thanks for your feedback!

Fantastic product

This tea straw is really great. At the bottom it has a little spiral doohickey that stops any tiny bit of leaf getting into the straw. In practice, the tea is as free of leaves as with a teabag. This is far superior to many other bombillas I've looked at, which have holes down the bottom instead, and tend to allow in small tea leaves. It's also super easy to clean - the little spiral part lifts up easily with a spring mechanism. A rinse under the tap will basically have it back to pristine condition, and it's dishwasher safe. The straw also allows me to drink tea lying down. Best way to drink tea!

Backing glue is not strong enough

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

I like that these pads are all natural and organic, and their length is excellent, but unfortunately the backing glue they use is not strong enough. At least one of the wings always peels away or rucks up, meaning accidents are inevitable.

Not much curl really

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 04, 2010 | Verified Purchase

I have wavy hair, and I found that this curling solution didn't curl my hair any more than scrunch drying with a normal styling spray would. I also found the curl disappeared after a few hours. However, it did give my hair more body, and possibly enhanced the henna colour in my hair. Unfortunately, this is a scented product, and although the perfume is light and disappears after a while, it triggered off my chemical sensitivity slightly. It would be good if the company could provide an unscented option.

They work.

I am always suspicious of whether vitamin supplements contain what they say they do on the label, but Thorne definitely does. I've been using different Thorne nutrient formulas for a while now. I have a condition which makes it difficult for me to metabolise fat-soluble vitamins, but the high doses of easy to digest vitamins and minerals in these supplements have meant my vitamin levels are finally within normal range.

Thanks for your feedback!

Easy to take and good value

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 16, 2011 | Verified Purchase

It's hard to judge the quality of vitamins and which are the best brands, but I've been told by several people that Solgar are of superior quality. I've been taking them for years and my b12 levels have remained normal according to blood tests. One of the easiest tablets I've ever taken, these chewable tablets are tiny and dissolve with just one bite. They have a cherry flavour and are suitable for vegans.

Thanks for your feedback!

Awesome

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 24, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I really love this noodle soup. It has just the right mix of flavour and textures - slightly spicy, warm and filling (well - filling for a snack). It's best if you just pour boiling water into it and let it sit with a cover over it, instead of trying to heat it up in the microwave.

Excellent styling spray

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 04, 2010 | Verified Purchase

This is a lighthold spray. It's excellent for damping down my flyaway hair, and helps when styling hair from wet. It has a lovely aloe vera smell, totally non-toxic.
