I've been taking lutein for about 10 years now (I'm 66), and had a very thorough eye check-up recently and it showed absolutely no retinal damage and very low intra-ocular pressure. There is glaucoma and macular degeneration on both sides of my family. I added zeaxanthin a year ago. So far so good. This brand is cheap and seems effective.

I feel ungrateful, complaining about something I got for free, but the magnifier's light didn't work upon receipt. After removing the screw that should allow access to the battery compartment, the cover refused to budge. Another reviewer mentioned getting it off with a sharp knife, which I will try. It magnifies well with bright ambient light, but the LED light would make this much better.
I've heard all my life that gelatin is good for nails, but, even though I've always had weak nails, I never tried it. There's actually some white showing at the top of all my nails right now. That has never happened before. (I'm 66) This is my third bottle.

I just got the results of my latest pap smear. For the first time in years, there was no addendum mentioning that I needed to seek treatment for candida. I started taking Now Foods oregano oil about four months ago, and haven't had any problems with it or with itchiness. Good product, and iherb's usual excellent service.
The ones I really want to take are the Dr. Linus Pauling brand, but they have been discontinued. My joints and spine have been hurting more since I can't get them any more. I took Nature's Bounty before this one. Didn't help either.
I take lutein and zeaxanthin regularly, but sometimes my eyes just feel weak and irritated, so I take these too on those days. They were on sale at a good price, and have some herbs my other supplements don't have. I'm not really sure if I'd get them when they're not on sale. They do help a little, but not much.
The dosage on these is higher than on the ones I was taking before, but my joints ache more now. I suspect the glucosamine is less available.
I think the St.Dalfour's are slightly cheaper, but the bottle adds weight for overseas shipments. These are good, and cheaper than I can get here.

I have diabetes, and for a couple of years, despite medication and care with diet that kept my glucose within acceptable levels, I began getting UTIs about once every two or three months. If I caught it quickly enough, I could head it off with a lot of cranberry and grape seed extract, but often I had to resort to antibiotics. My sister-in-law told me about D Mannose more than two years ago, and since then I have had only one UTI which I got rid of without antibiotics. I take one a day, and increased that when I got the UTI.
These are not for heavy duty headaches (for me, anyway), but they help when I have a dull headache or a new headache coming on.
