Just a couple of drops on the backs of your hands and it is absorbed almost instantly and leaves your hands as soft as a newborn's you know what! I did try around my eyes, but got too close to/on the lid so overnight it bled thru the eyelid and left a film on my eyes, so be sure and not put on the actual "lid", okay for around the eyes and those other lines on your face. Tried to the ends of my hair, works well, but the key is to use just a trace amount or it will seep up your hair like a wick and your hair (or at least mine did) will be oily. Overall, for the size of the bottle and the extremely small amount you need to use, well worth the price for the benefits. The main thing is that it is 100% pure Morrocan argan oil which is key according to Dr. Oz show; there's so much work that those women go thru over there to produce it, that in itself is amazing. I'd skip all the expensive argan oil shampoo and conditioners, and just add a FEW drops to your shampoo of choice and save yourself the money and insure that you're getting the real deal.
All of the NutraMedix products are great, this one is especially useful for the Lyme co-infection of Babesia which affects the heart.
After 6 months on very high doses of several antibiotics, then no treatment for a while, began taking Samento. Don't know whether or not it's working, as the IGeneX Lab test is extremely expensive but the only reliable one, but I developed severe tendonitis from the Cipro for the Bartonella, with recommended surgeries as a result of such a high dose twice a day, which I am refusing. So, now going to go the herbal route. Will be adding more NutraMedix products soon. I know they have a good reputation, so am rating 5 stars. I will update my status when I know the results.
I take many many vitamins and minerals, but my most intelligent neurologist tested me for copper and it was low to my shock! I do have a demylination process going on in my nerves, not MS, but probably from the Lyme, and after a few weeks on this, my electrical type pain has lessened. Ordering another bottle and of course will need labs checked again. Interestingly, about 30 years ago when I was working with a biochemist, I was also low in copper, so it's something specific to me and my chemistry as I eat mostly organic and take multiple high quality pills. Life Extension also recommended this brand, of which I've been a member since 1995, but it's cheaper on iherb.
I usually use the lower dose of this brand, 1 daily, and it works for me. This higher dose gives me diarrhea so I have reduced to 1 every few days. Could be because I also take an intestinal cleanse after dinner due to medications, yet the 5 billion doesn't have that effect on me. I am deciding which strength to buy again, but will definitely stick with Jarrow brand.
On my 2nd or 3rd bottle of this, was at the full 15 drops but found it caused diarrhea so reduced to 10 drops and no problems. Use once a day with the Pinella for my second dose. Works for the co-infection of Lyme-Bartonella which affects the spinal cord and brain.

So happy I decided to try this scent, it fills the shower with a powerful but delightful smell, and best of all, the odor lingers on the skin for awhile unlike most body washes, yet is light enough that it doesn't interfere with other scented products you may use afterwards. Now I'll try the other products in this scent. Wish they had a body butter (have the lemon verbena and the vanilla already and they're both wonderful!).
Used years ago sporadically, but after 6 months of heavy doses of antibiotics for Lyme disease and bartonella, used 3 different types of antibiotics from iherb. I just mix this every morning along with other powders like L-Taurine, D-Ribose, chlorella, neuro-mag, and it mixes in nicely and I know it works. Also sprinkle just a minimal amount in my cats wet food and it helps eliminate their hairballs.
Recommended brand by medical professionals. Couldn't take about 20 years ago as made me hyper but probably because I didn't have pain then. If you have chronic pain, your endorphins are used up in same pathway as pain signals and you either need antidepressants or this. Started with 1 a day, after a couple of months, doctor raised me to 2 a day; take one as soon as I get up in morning, the last one a couple of hours before bed. Have noticed a huge difference. Will continue to use this brand.

I didn't realize this was the same as Dr. Oetker pudding which I've bought locally for years and was so pleased it's similar but looking at the label on both boxes now, they reduced the sodium from 100 mg. to 90 mg, and reduced the sugar from 23 grams to 16 grams, both of which are VERY important to me. The carb content has dropped from 30 grams from 20 grams, and now it contains 1 gram of protein instead of zero. This is probably because the box is now 3.5 oz instead of 4.5 oz, the trick most companies play nowadays to avoid price increases. This makes 3 large dessert dishes instead of 4 which is perfect for me as I don't want to eat it 4 times close together anyways for health reasons. Now I can stock up as it's hard to get to the store as I'm disabled. I added extra dark chocolate chips once when I made it which didn't melt all the way but it was yummy. They are also telling you to cook at a lower heat now and it will still stick to a stainless pan if you're not careful but is easy enough to remove and doesn't take but a few minutes to make and of course you can't get anything in a regular grocery store ready made that even begins to compare health wise or for taste.
