I have written to the Mercola website re the ascorbic acid appearing to not be liposomal form when the capsules are opened. They said consuming it with water activates the liposomes.

4th ingredient out of 10 is sea salt! Wouldn't have purchased it if I knew. Since when does curry powder contain salt? There is no expiry or packaged date on the packet, like all Starwest Botanicals. When ordering you need to note the expiry date on the iherb product page so you can write it on the bag when you receive it. I put some in a container and the rest in the freezer.

This cinnamon DOES lower blood sugar. High amounts can damage the liver because of its high coumarin content. Buy the Ceylon (3 x more expensive) if you use more than 1/2 tsp/day, as Ceylon only contains trace amounts of the compound coumarin. Ceylon is not "true" cinnamon compared to the regular. The difference is only the coumarin and taste. So many reviewers here don't know what they're talking about. Frontier's tastes great and it's organic. Put into a shaker and keep the bag in the freezer.

The trace amount of lead, plus some other toxic metals, are bonded in clay and are not bioavailable. They will not build up in the body. This clay just happens to mention the lead, probably because they have to due to legal disclosure laws. If you don't want to consume the small amount, changing to another brand will be of no benefit because all bentonite clay naturally contains it. My naturopath has included it in my dextox program.

M7 is the best bioavailable form of K2. High dose vit D supplementing increases requirement of K2. For every 1,000i.u. of vit D, you need 100 mcg of K2. Capsules are large, but they also contain a great mix of organic whole foods for only $3 more than Dr's Best, which is the cheapest non-GMO K2 M7.

I don't know why the first reviewer says he "takes 2 tabs a week which evens out to 40 mg/day, the ideal dose." 1 Now tab contains silica 40 mg. Some reviewers said their hair improved within a week. Hair grows 1/4-1/2 an inch a month, so it's impossible for hair, which is dead, to look better in a week! I took Great Lakes gelatin for several months without improvement in my weak nails and hair which is starting to become frizzy. I'm 58. My doc said to try silica. Neocell Collagen Beauty Builder also sounds good. Contains collagen 1&3, vit C, biotin, ALA, hyaloric acid and silica-(Directions are 3 tabs=37.5 mg silica) Horsetail can cause a thiamin deficiency so I won't re-order the NOW Complex. Bamboo doesn't contain the thiamin blocking enzyme thiaminase, do is a safer source of silica. Horesetail can't be taken indefinitely either. 2 mths. on, 2 weeks off. Please everyone, include how long you've been taking product and the dose when writing reviews.

No nasty added ingredients. My dream recall is full on now, and dreams aren't full of stress anymore. Always a sign B6 is working and no longer deficient.

Great daily tonic for my cat. She pushes my hand aside to get to her "treats" as I put them down for her. 2 daily for maintenance. 4 if cat is not well. Mine has been sick twice with no appetite. When she had a very stressed liver, (vet said she may have eaten a poisoned mouse), after days of no appetite the first and only thing I got her to eat was spirulina. She ate 12 straight!! Then gradually back to normal food. Very high in protein, has vitamins, minerals, prebiotics..a complete nutritional package.

A couple of years ago the product had leaking caplets. They will refund if this happens, even for o/s customers, and you don't have to return bottle. Lately my orders have been ok. 2013. I choose this brand because of the added astaxanthin for youthful skin and caplets are a superior delivery system. I take 2 krill and 30 mls. of coconut oil for a great brain support combo. As Dr Oz says, We are fat heads. Our brains need good fats.
