For years I've been taking Organika plant enzymes (Organika is an awesome company here in British Columbia), but Iherb doesn't stock Organika, and these Source Naturals enzymes have the exact same ingredients and amounts, so I thought I'd try them. They seem to work just as well, I take them with every meal unless I'm having just raw fruits or veggies.

I take this with extra foti-root and it seems to have gotten rid of the grey hairs that were starting to appear.

I and my dogs take milk thistle, so this is a great way to buy it. I love iHerb and I love Starwest.

Bovine colostrum is one of the best supplements I have ever used. I had chronic bronchitis for three years until I began taking this (as well as Dr. Ohhira's Five Year Probiotics), plus I was taking reishi mushroom and astragalus at the time, but I attribute the major change to the colostrum and Dr. Ohhira's. Three years of coughing till I thought I was going to die and lots of colds and it all stopped when I started this. I now know that my immune system was severely depleted due to stress and this helped tremendously. I no longer get colds. It also made my skin incredibly soft and velvety. I really love this stuff and I think everyone should be on it.

I had a lovely tasting bilberry tincture from another company that was a pleasure to take. This tastes way too much like alcohol, probably because it's a 1:4 dry herb strength, as opposed to 1:1, which is much better. I like that it has organic alcohol, but the taste is no good.

Update to review below: I am lowering my rating to two stars because my mother mentioned that my hair has been looking greasy lately. I thought that this and the bar with argan oil were doing a good job, although I still had days that my hair felt like straw even with the apple cider vinegar rinse, but I thought at least I was doing something good for it. My mother commented that since I've been using this, my hair has looked greasy. I'm now going to look for something else. I found a way that I can use this shampoo bar without turning my hair to oily straw. Instead of spraying the apple cider vinegar rinse on, I poured about 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar into a medium sized bowl, filled the rest with water, and dipped my hair into it, and poured the remaining rinse over my roots. I did not wash it out. Now my hair is soft and shiny. Original review: My hair looks and feels terrible after using this several times. I'm still going to try it for a while, because maybe it takes time to get used to. But my hair feels like straw on the bottom, and oily in places at the roots. I miss my Giovanni shampoo and conditioner so much, but I'm trying to completely avoid estrogenic ingredients like phenoxyethanol and certain essential oils (see Dr. Peter Eckhart if you're confused). J.R. Liggett's customer service is a bit weird, too. I phoned them to ask if their shampoo bar for damaged hair contains certain essential oils. They returned my call while I was out, so I emailed, explaining the situation. Instead of at least replying that the bar does or does not contain the essential oils I'm trying to avoid, they reacted as if I'm trying to steal their recipe. Paranoid much? I'm going to try their argan oil bar to see if that's an improvement on this one, but this whole experience has left a bad taste in my mouth. I just want to find a shampoo bar that works for me. I have long, fine, colour treated hair (brunette), btw, the kind that tangles hopelessly every time I set foot outside. Not sure if that's why this soap doesn't work so well or not. I also have been following it with an apple cider vinegar rinse.

I bought these because there was a picture of peanut butter cups on the outside. I understand they are bars, so I thought they would be peanut butter cup bars. These are kind of hard and not chewy enough granola bars, they are nothing at all like chocolate peanut butter cups, and they don't taste very good, and they are super expensive to boot. Why put a picture like that on the box when that is not at all what is inside?

I've been taking other brands of reishi for several years now. I believe that it helps to prevent colds, but I also read that it helps with cortisol.

I've taken this for quite sometime and still got a sunburn, something this is supposed to prevent. I've now decided to try the Hawaiian astaxanthin instead.

The taste of this really is unbearable. I felt sick to my stomach after taking it, and I've been headachy for days since, and I NEVER get headaches. There is something wrong here. I have taken Concentrace liquid minerals before and have never felt sick or had headaches afterwards. DO NOT BUY!!!
