About Me

Hi, I'm Neri. My family are health freaks. Papa updates this site, while Mama takes care of the family and kids. Mama's not much of a writer, but Papa is. He writes the reviews, and maintains our iHerb and other online sites. We care about our health, and value our money. In 2005, we found the "best buy" for Chlorella and Spirulina, two of the best pound-for-pound, and cheapest whole-food, natural, “alkalizers” available. Fast forward 2010, came the "iHerb Rewards Program". We built a simple website, and maintained it once in a while. In December 2011, we ordered $191.45 worth of "iHerbs"... and surprise! We paid NOTHING, nada, zilch! Our "Rewards" paid for it!

Now Foods, Acidophilus Three Billion - For its price, you can

Posted by Thoughtful-Reviews on Aug 21, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Probiotic is essential for a healthy digestive system. Everything inside our body starts and ends in our stomach. I noticed that when I started taking this probiotic (3 billion acidophilus!) my poop has become lighter with noticeable popped bubble holes. And my movement was easier. I didn't have problems with regularity bec. I eat a lot of fiber, supported by my 'greens'. Before, I would buy this big 1 quart yogurts (with millions of 'live' organisms) at 'Savemart'. But over time, I got bored with scooping the thing whenever I needed my intestinal 'organisms'. The quart sometimes are left unfinished in the fridge, and had to be trashed. This acidophilus solved that problem. Does not need to refrigirated, and is easily carried anywhere. Later, I also tried Dr. Ohhira's probiotics. It was excellent, you really feel your stomach &quot;talking&quot;. But, it was too pricy for me ($48 for 60 caps). Then Jarrows came out with their own stabilized probiotics (with 5 billion organisms per cap). It was first offered as a Freebie. (So my reminder to you Folks, don't forget to browse the Freebie section ... you might just see something you want ... for free!) It was super-excellent for its price ($16, 60 caps). Then I discovered the RAW twin (Garden of Life, Raw Greens and Raw Protein) with its generous blend of 'live' probiotics. With so many vitamins and minerals to choose from, against so many competing brands ... I simplified to my 'green' foundational smoothies (chlorella, spirulina, raw green, raw protein, maca), and chose Jarrows for my probiotics. But this product, Now Foods' stabilized probiotics is also good. For its price, you can never go wrong. >>> To get more /Nuggets and Tips/ on products me and my family have actually bought and used... ... Click the link above [[Posted By Thoughtful-Reviews]].

Doctor's Best, Extra Strength Ginkgo - Good for memory, but beware of its blood-thinning capability

Posted by Thoughtful-Reviews on Aug 14, 2012 | Verified Purchase

My mama (in law) would badger me about this whenever her stock is about to run out. She says her memory has improved a lot since she started taking this. I introduced it to her and my papa (in law, RIP, bless his soul) 2 years ago. And they have been regular ever since. I used to take ginkgo but I stopped because I found out that I easily bleed as manifested when my nose bleeds. (Ginkgo has blood-thinning effects.) Maybe because of the dosage 120mg. I don't remember my nose bleeding when I take the other Ginkgo at 60mg. But, I notice that even mild ASA 81 mg (baby aspirin) taken 2 days straight would make my nose bleed. So for now, I only take it once in a while. But my momma, takes it every day with no adverse effects, and she's already 89! Just a precaution, if you are reading this, observe first how your body responds to ginkgo as every body is different. Still, I rate this product highly. So does my in laws. >>> To get more /Nuggets and Tips/ on products me and my family have actually bought and used... ... Click the link above [[Posted By Thoughtful-Reviews]].

Healthy Origins, EpiCor - Better than Flu shot?

Posted by Thoughtful-Reviews on Nov 17, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I researched Epicor a lot. It's a proprietary yeast-based formulation that activates the body's killer T cell "within" 30 minutes upon digestion! I wrote earlier that if you want a good alternative to the flu-shot (flus are prevalent during the months of October thru January in the US), you may try Epicor. I take it once a day in the morning. Have not been sick of allergies since. >>> To get more /Nuggets and Tips/ on products me and my family have actually bought and used... ... Click the link above [[Posted By Thoughtful-Reviews]].

Sundesa, Blender Bottle with Blender Ball - A Miracle Blender - Does anbody know where to buy just the &quot;ball&quot; alone? :)

Posted by Thoughtful-Reviews on Aug 17, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I first got curious about this when it was offered in the FREEBIE section. Got myself to try (I think it was just $1.95 then, for a "first-time" buy (sound familiar?). It turned out to be an indispensable part of my"liquid green diet". When I'm not in a hurry, I would make a half-gallmix the ff: green powder (spirulina, chlorella, RAW super green food by Garden of Life, maca organic root (Nuvitas), fair-sized banana (mash it up with fork,placed against a bowl ... the over-ripes will do ... don't blend the freshly-ripened banana bec. it's better, and tastier, eating them straight) ... add a teaspooon of Tang juice powder (cheaper to buy this, than the $4-concentrates), add some sugar (a sachet of stevia, also from iherb, is best) ... then with the Sundesa blender, shake it vigorously. You benefit 2 ways -- you build your muscles in the arms and chest, and you get to have a delicious, rich, thick smoothie! The sundesa blender can make 2-3 servings. Put the rest in the fridge. Or make some more, and give it to the family. Now after the trial, I liked it so much that I bought 2 more for my family. It is also an excellent gift idea to your health-conscious friends. Kudos to the one who thought of and invented the "magic mixer ball". It is ingenuity at its simplest best! I tried to google it, hoping to buy just the ball ... but I'm not successful yet. Perhaps, in the future ... they'll allow us to purchase just the ball alone. >>> To get more /Nuggets and Tips/ on products me and my family have actually bought and used... ...

Madre Labs, Immune Punch with AHCC and Epicor - This Immune Punch Saved My Day!

Posted by Thoughtful-Reviews on Aug 30, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I have a very nice memory of this product. I first got it as a sample (Freebie Section), then gave it to a friend as an introduction to iHerb. He surprised me the next week when he gifted me with a full bottle as his way of saying thank you! He said he was very pleased with iHerb. There was this time when I worked 5 nights straight, with so little sleep during the day. So how did you expect my body to react? I felt my immune system go down. I felt joint pains, hoarse voice, and I was unusually sluggish. Knowing my body well, I knew I was going down ... but can't afford to miss work being on a per diem basis (no work, no pay). I then remembered this Madre Labs Immune punch, which was lying in my cupboard. Their formulation of various anti-oxidants (with a "secret" mix of different mushrooms blends, elderberry et al) presents a strong force against allergies, unfections, flu and colds. So,instead of "megadosing" on Vit-C, I drank up 2x the recommended dosage of Madre Labs immune punch, and slept. It was a good sleep, and when I woke up ... I felt rested, and the itchiness in my throat and soreness in my voice were... gone! Needless to say, I was able to continue working! >>> To get more /Nuggets and Tips/ on products me and my family have actually bought and used... ...

Earthrise, Spirulina Natural - One of my very first spirulinas - I would have stayed with Earthrise if not for...

Posted by Thoughtful-Reviews on Aug 18, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I would have stayed with Earthrise if not for their price. I bought my first spirulinas with earthrise. When I first learned about the wonders of Spirulina (and Chlorella), Earthrise was the only brand I know at the time (2005). Thru the years, I came to know more Spirulinas, at much better prices. Now, I've shifted to Now Foods' and Nutrex's powdered spirulinas. Their prices are 'priced to sell' >>> To get more /Nuggets and Tips/ on products me and my family have actually bought and used... ... Click the link above [[Posted By Thoughtful-Reviews]].

Now Foods, Royal Jelly - Royal Jelly, my father

Posted by Thoughtful-Reviews on Aug 16, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I worked in an MLM company before, and one of their main products was this miracle food from the "lowly" bees. Suffice it to say, we priced our product &quot;premium&quot;. I was so surprised that Now Foods price this at a level that will put that MLM company away. Now that it's affordable, I used to supply my father with it, and he always reminds to bring another bottle when his supplies begin to run out. He says that he feels rejuvinated whenever he takes it. For those who do not know, royal jelly is the food that the Queen Bee takes ... and she takes care of the whole bee colony! She is also very fertile she lays eggs 2000 eggs everyday thruout her lifetime! ... and outlives the ordinary bee worker 30-fold! It is also one of the many seasonal supplements that I take because of its natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. My mainstays has always been chlorella and spirulina (and their &quot;green derivatives&quot;) like Garden of Life's Super Green formula. Back to my father ... he likes Royal Jelly better. Well, he lived up to a ripe old age of 90! Long live the Queen ... err, the King? >>> To get more /Nuggets and Tips/ on products me and my family have actually bought and used... ...
