Dodgy ingredient labeling

Posted by njwherb on Jan 14, 2011 | Verified Purchase

The bottle says "chelated magnesium" on the front but in the list of ingredients it says: Magnesium (as magnesium amino acid chelate, magnesium oxide) It doesn't say what percentage of the Magnesium is from magnesium amino acid chelate and what percent from magnesium oxide. It makes a big difference - magnesium oxide is poorly absorbed. It may only have a very small percentage of chelated Magnesium. Probably why it is cheaper than the other brands of chelated magnesium It is dodgy labelling. You don't know what you are getting.

Not as good as others

Posted by njwherb on Sep 25, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I have tried quite a few brands of cacao nibs and these are not as good as some of the other brands I've tried. They seem a little drier and more bitter and with not as much cocoa fat in them.

Not as good as expected

Posted by njwherb on Sep 25, 2012 | Verified Purchase

First time I've bought this brand of cinnamon and a bit disappointed. Not nearly as strong or aromatic a flavour as other brands of "Cinnamomum Verum" I've bought and also a bit more bitter. Will try another brand next time

I find the smell too strong

Posted by njwherb on Dec 19, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I had been using the NOW brand and tried this one instead. I found the smell a lot stronger than the NOW brand. I think the oil is similar (although a little darker) but I prefer the blander smell of the NOW brand. Also I find the lid on this one impossible to use. The dispenser mechanism gives a "measured" dose which is mostly too much. I took the lid off the old NOW brand bottle and used that instead

NOTE - BAGS ARE NOW THINNER

Posted by njwherb on Dec 31, 2015 | Verified Purchase

The quality of these bags has changed and they are now thinner than they used to be. For me they are now not thick enough as they will not last long enough in my handbag. The design is reasonable and the size is good, but being too thin is a show stopper for me and I will look for another brand. Also note that iherb are using the old product packet photo

excellent

I really like this form of vitamin C. Calcium Ascorbate is easy on the stomach and also supplies some Calcium, which saves me having to get clacium tablets separately. The capsules are very easy to swallow - much easier than most other Vit C I have tried that are in tablet form. I also really like that there aren't bioflavinoids in this Vit C. There are plenty of Vit C mixtures out there with bioflavinoids in them if that is what you want, but I prefer to have the choice and have my C without bioflavinoids. So I'm really pleased that Carlson have made this product and that iherb stock it.

good flavour

Posted by njwherb on Dec 23, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I'm very happy with the flavour of this tea. I have tried another brand of Holy basil tea that was very stale and flavourless but this one is full flavour. The packaging is a bit wasteful as there is a bag inside the tin - I'd be happy to purchase just in the bag and not have a wasted tin each time.

Only floss I can find with no flavor and no chemicals

Posted by njwherb on Jan 01, 2018 | Verified Purchase

I have been unable to find any other floss with no added 'chemicals' or flavors. I am so pleased that Radius make this one, that it is natural silk and natural wax and NO flavour. Yes occasionally it breaks, but that is a small price to pay for your health. In general I find it works really well.

Thanks for your feedback!

great taste, low in heavy metals

Posted by njwherb on Dec 23, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I have tried a few brands or organic cacao nibs over the years and these stack up very well for taste in my opinion. Cacao nibs tend to have high levels of cadmium, so I wanted a brand with as low an amount of cadmium as possible. When I contacted Sunfood they were very responsive and said that they tested their nibs regularly and sent me the certificate of analysis that showed that the cadmium was low (and lower than other organic brands on iherb ) and that the other heavy metals were very low as well. This is now my preferred brand of organic cacao nibs. Also the manufacturer

no fishy taset

Posted by njwherb on Dec 23, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I like these omega 3 capsules as they have no fishy taste - in fact they have a very bland flavour (I've chewed one to find out)

Thanks for your feedback!
