One of the best gelatin brands

Posted by iHerb Customer on Oct 06, 2015 | Verified Purchase

This brand of gelatin is recommended by Ray Peat, PhD, who has written about the numerous benefits of gelatin on disorders like arthritis, autism, colitis, ulcers, celiac disease, epilepsy, postpartum and premenstrual problems, diabetes, impotence, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis etc. Gelatin is so healing because it contains amino acids like glycine which most modern diets are lacking in (we've stopped eating foods made of "unappetizing" animal parts like tail, skin, etc.). People used to eat the whole animal and not just muscle meats in the past and we should resume this tradition, or else add powdered gelatin to our diets. Gelatin is anti-inflammatory, and as we are beginning to suspect by now, most of the degenerative diseases (and even things like depression) are inflammatory in nature, hence such a broad spectrum of indications. Personally I feel calmer and less depressed, I sleep better, and even my (mild) TMJ improves if I take gelatin regularly. Also, according to dr. Peat adults can take much larger amounts than stated on the can for added benefits.

change in formula?

Posted by iHerb Customer on Oct 29, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Some years ago I bought this soap and it smelled wonderfully of roses. However, when I bought it later (in 2013) the soap had a somewhat irritating smell, more of herbs than roses, so I don't think I will buy it again.

Thanks for your feedback!

Amazing packaging

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 18, 2015 | Verified Purchase

This product comes in what is probably the nicest packaging I've ever seen - I'm a designer and tend to notice things like that. Truly exquisite and a joy to use for that reason, as well as very suitable as a gift. The flip side is, one has to pay the price for such packaging, which means that the higher price does not solely reflect the quality of this tea (which I can't comment on because I have very little experience with green teas).

Thanks for your feedback!

Amazing packaging

I'm not an expert on green teas so while the taste seems authentic and pure to me, I'll leave judgement on that to other reviewers. However, I'm a designer and I'm AMAZED by the effort Rishi put into their packaging. Their high-end teas are some of the most well thought-over and all around visually pleasant products that I have ever seen. And this particular one looks much nicer in reality than on the photo - the cute tin can is of a stunning deep green color.

Satisfied

Posted by iHerb Customer on Feb 22, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I avoid tinctures with added glycerin as they can be irritating to the digestive tract, and this one fits the bill. It also seems to be stronger than some other alcohol tinctures I've tried.

Thanks for your feedback!

Nice but not as concentrated as their other product

Posted by iHerb Customer on Oct 06, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I prefer this same brand's extra strength african black soap because with that one, a little goes a long way. This is good too but you need to use more and hence shipping is more expensive - it's basically the same thing, just more diluted.

Thanks for your feedback!

Perfect!

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

Every product from California Xtracts (and I tried more than just a few) seems to be top quality - of a richer color than alternative brands, with good effects and no toxic additives whatsoever. People that buy tinctures without alcohol don't realise that glycerin that is usually in them is a major gut irritant. Bottom line: I love this brand and as long as they keep on producing such quality products, I am staying their regular client!

Thanks for your feedback!

I use it daily

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 18, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I use this extract daily in all sorts of foods like milkshakes, oatmeal, desserts etc. I have absolutely no complaints!

Thanks for your feedback!

amazing smell!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Oct 29, 2014 | Verified Purchase

This soap is my favourite of all Nubian Heritage soaps (I've tried almost all). It has a wonderfully sweet and long-lasting scent - some other soaps that I also like lost smell very quickly, but not this one. Black soap of the same brand has a nice scent too, but it does not persist, plus it can leave stains because of its dark colour.

Thanks for your feedback!

Best soap out there

Posted by iHerb Customer on Oct 06, 2015 | Verified Purchase

This soap is much richer than the other liquid african soap from Alaffia. You get less but it's worth it, because a very small amount goes a long way (and you save on shipping as well). Any soap, however, will disrupt the hormone balance of the skin - I repeat, ANY soap (because they all remove the natural oils and moisture). So I use even this soap sparingly and only if necessary. The oil that our skin produces itself is best for the skin, meaning that no cosmetics can do a better job, no matter what the marketing people tell you. I get way less acne if I just wash my face with water, for example.

Thanks for your feedback!
