I tried another Lion's Mane product which was not nearly as good. This one is simply brilliant. I only need to take one per day as a rule, so it is not that expensive. In times of stress at work and fatigue I take two a day. The product increases physical and mental energy. I'm not as young as I was, and neither is my brain but this really helps me think clearly. It also seems to help prevent colds etc. No side effects or stomach problems either. I think the claim of enhanced bioavailability must be true, because I tried a higher doseage of another brand and it didn't have much effect VC.

This oil is a gentle but effective cleanser, which leaves my skin moisturised and glowing but without any greasy film. It also seems to make my eyelashes look better and darker, and therefore longer It's very quick and easy to use as well

This herb is not that well known in the West. It is not ordinary Salvia, but known variously as Chinese Salvia, Salvia miltiorrhiza, Dan Shen or Red Sage. It is absolutely brilliant for all kinds of heart conditions. I started getting palpitations and missed beats, and felt so bad I went to the ER. My ECG was fairly normal and they said it was nothing major to worry about, but to follow up with my doctor - no hurry. (Women with heart conditions are frequently not treated very seriously!) As there is no way I am going to take Statins, I did some research and started taking this. In maybe a week, my heart started to calm down. I only take one a day and that seems enough to make me feel better, although I occasionally find I'm getting palpitations again. The Chinese preparation called "Dan Shen Dripping Pills" which contains this and a few other herbs has recently been approved by the FDA. I hope it becomes more widely known as it has so many benefits eg vasodilation, improves microcirculation and blood flow, good for "sticky blood", anti inflammatory, good for the liver etc. It helps you sleep and so has traditionally been used for people whose palpitations keep them awake. I have experienced no side effects.

I took one of these. A few hours later I began to feel dizzy and somewhat brain-dead. That night I slept really well but was unable to get up at the usual time because I felt so groggy. I think the dosage is far too high - I don't recommend anyone take these but you could try another brand with a lower dose eg 15mg or 30mg

The first week I used this product I would have given it 4 out of 5: 4 because it was so moisturising but minus 1 because it smelled absolutley awful! However, after a couple of weeks, it developed a ring of mould around the "spout" (despite keeping it firmly closed) so I believe it to be "off". I notice is has no sell by date on it, so it could be years old!

When you use a natural shampoo like this, you wonder why most commercial shampoos bother to use horrible chemicals in their products. This isn't simply the best natural shampoo I've used, but the best shampoo of any kind. I have long hair, sensitive scalp, dry skin. Many natural shampoos don't clean your hair, don't rinse out well, leave a layer of something-or-other, and make your hair greasy in a short time. This one cleans beautifully, is good for my hair and scalp, makes it shine, feel lovely and silky, stays clean looking for maybe half a week or more, and creates manageability - it makes it drape beautifully if you know what I mean. I also use the conditioner which goes with it and the results are perfect

Still wish I could get a lower dose B6 tablet - I have to cut these in half

I originally bought a small bottle of these, and they were brilliant. Really good ingredients. So I bought a large bottle, and they absolutely stank of fish! After a few days of taking them, I developed an upset stomach which disappeared when I stopped taking them. How could one bottle be so different from another!

I love this brand's shampoos and conditioners so wanted to try this. I was confused about what you are supposed to do with it so I contacted them and they told me it was a scalp treatment to be applied and left in overnight. I am middle aged and have thinning hair so I thought it would be good. However, it is really horrible stuff! It is very thick and gooey and what's more has bits in it - presumably herbs. This would also make it unsuitable for what I normally think of as a pomade. I did try it a few times and although it seemed to wash out alright, my hair got greasy quicker than normal and it does not seem to have done a thing for my scalp or hair. Won't be buying it again.

cleansed my hair well, and seemed to bring out the colour. No soapy or waxy residue. I will buy again but I needed to apply conditioner after washing, contrary to what it says on the bottle.
