GOOD BUT COULD BE EVEN BETTER WITH SOME CHANGES

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Feb 05, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I am very happy with this Vitamin C capsule because it does not contain any fillers like magnesium stearate and it is very easy to swallow. I am also very happy that it is made of Quali-C the best ascorbic acid available. However, I give the product only four stars because I would like to have some synergists like bioflavonoids, Rose Hips or something included in the formula to ensure better absorption and effect. 1000 mg is a good strength. NOW Foods have many Vitamin C products available that have synergists included. And one good choice is to buy an Alpha Lipoic Acid supplement that is an antioxidant known to help regenerate Vitamin C in the body.

Good Amount of Vitamin D3

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Mar 29, 2015 | Verified Purchase

These capsules are small and very easy to swallow. 5,000 IU = 125 µg vitamin D3, the best form of vitamin D, has been the right dosage for me all year round, although I am quite small in size. I have measured my blood serum 25-Hydroxyvitamin D, 25(OH)D three times and now in March 2015 my test result was 141 nmol/L = 56.4 ng/ml. My test result was now at optimum level which is 125 - 150 nmol/L = 50 - 60 ng/ml when you are taking enough Vitamin D. I will continue with the same dosage 5,000 IU daily to keep my vitamin D level right. There is no need to worry about overdosing because the tendency for serum 25(OH)D to rise when the starting level already is higher is very gradual.

Excellent Strength Of Natural Astaxanthin

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Aug 14, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I like this astaxanthin because I do not necessarily need to take it every day. I take this together with Madre Labs Omega 3 and they seem to work well together. I use astaxanthin to keep my muscles working smoothly :) Astaxanthin is a must have for athletes and active people; increases endurance, stamina and recovery. Small capsules are very easy to swallow. Astaxanthin has shown to be 550 times stronger than vitamin E, 800 times stronger than CoQ10 and 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C in its antioxidant activity. Astaxanthin is the most powerful antioxidant available but it is so much more too: internal sunscreen, strong benefits for heart, eye and brain health, joint and tendon health. Astaxanthin tackles also low-grade inflammation that is thought to be at the root of many chronic diseases! Vitamin E in this product is a good addition. Astaxanthin together with Vitamin E protects for example against premature aging of the skin. Astaxanthin is your secret weapon to health and beauty...anyone over the age of 40, even if feeling completely healthy, should start taking astaxanthin as a preventive measure to fend off life-threatening diseases. It is important to take astaxanthin consistently for four to six weeks to allow it to concentrate in your body. First two months 12 mg is the most approriate recommended dosage, after that you may lower the dose to 4 mg or 8 mg per day if you want. You should always take astaxanthin with a meal that includes some fat. I hope you found this review helpful, if so kindly click the Yes button below, thank you.

One Of The Best Forms Of Magnesium

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Apr 26, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Easy to use and really relaxes those aching muscles! Magnesium deficiency is very common. The magnesium content in food has been declining steadily beacause of depletion of minerals in our soils. No wonder so many people suffer from fatigue, weakness, personality changes, muscle contractions and cramps, all signs of magnesium deficiency. Only 30 - 40 % of the dietary magnesium consumed is typically absorbed by the body. Tested levels of absorption of oral magnesium supplements vary from only 4 % to about 50 % absorbed. Magnesium chloride has high bioavailability due to its superior solubility in water . Trials have shown that transdermal magnesium therapy can increase magnesium levels up to five times faster than traditional tablets or capsules. This Life Flo Health magnesium oil acts fast. You can feel a nice tingling sensation. Sufficient magnesium will be absorbed in 20 - 30 minutes time. If wanted skin can be washed after that. I do not always wash away the salt left behind but then you will have to do the laudry more often. Good working kidneys will excrete any excess magnesium not needed by your body. No need to worry about getting too much magnesium. I am using my second bottle of this wonderful magnesium oil and bought also the Sports version which is even nicer to apply, I think. I can warmly recommend both Life Flo Health Magnesium Oil Sprays! You are warmly welcome to read my other product reviews too by clicking my name above.

Excellent Amount ELEMENTAL MAgnesium But Tablets Quite Big

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Feb 16, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Make sure to get enough magnesium. And make sure to choose a good magnesium product that has lots of ELEMENTAL MAGNESIUM like Doctor's Best Magnesium has! Don't let manufacturers fool you, most of them give the magnesium amount like AS magnesium citrate or AS magnesium oxide for example, and that does not mean anything unless you know how many procent of that magnesium component has ELEMENTAL magnesium in it. I update this because I have got new knowledge: I now guess that many manufacturers mean actually elemental amount even when they use the AS. It is recommended to give amounts in elemental amounts in supplements, but it is not a must. I contactacted Solgar and they state all in elemental amounts and they use the AS form like as magnesium citrate. Doctor's Best gives you straight the right answer, because they use the FROM form which leaves nothing questionable, you know exactly how much MAGNESIUM you will get from a tablet. And magnesium FROM magnesium glycinate / lycinate chelate is well absorbed by the body. I warmly recommend this magnesium product but I know that some people find the tablets too big to swallow. That is why I gave 4 stars and not 5. Also the magnesium stearate used in the tablet can bother some people. However, there are not many good magnesium products available so you really should consider this one seriously I think. One good choice is LifeFlo Magnesium Chloride Oil (check out my page above) if you find these tablets too big for you. Many magnesium products have big tablets like this one. Hope you found this review helpful. If so, please click the Yes Button below. Thank you. You are also warmly welcome to read my other reviews.

Such A Nice Magnesium Oil Product

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Apr 26, 2015 | Verified Purchase

This oil is one of my favourite iHerb products. Very effective and nice to use. Good composition; arnica, eucalyptus and peppermint are good extras in this wonderful magnesium oil spray.

Good Carnosine Product With Good Price

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Dec 09, 2015 | Verified Purchase

These capsules are very easy to swallow. Carnosine's effectiveness doesn't build gradually. If you don't take enough of it during the day, it simply has no effect. The reason is that carnosine is readily degraded by the enzyme carnosinase in the human body. You need to take enough to overwhelm the carnosinase so that "undegraded" carnosine can make its way to the cells of your body. The amount varies according to age and diet, but in general, for people in their mid-thirties and higher, you're looking at 1000-1500 mg a day. If you're younger, healthy, and include lots of meat in your diet, 500 mg a day is probably enough. Carnosine, when used properly, is one of the most effective and fast acting natural anti-aging options available -- and that's being confirmed and validated in study after study. Carnosine has the remarkable ability to throttle down bodily processes that are in a state of excess, and to ramp up those that are under expressed. For example, carnosine thins the blood of people whose blood tends to clot too much and increases the clotting tendency in those with a low clotting index. Carnosine is good for muscles and good for brain too. Yoy may want to use DMAE and Acetyl-l-carnitine to help remove the lipofuscin produced in the body as a side effect of carnosine's protective action. I hope you find this review helpful.

Like This A Lot, A Huge Potential In Serrapeptase

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Jun 22, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Serrapeptase is said to be amazing and possibilities with serrapeptase are so powerful that I definitely will continue to use this product after first two packages. I feel great with this even when I really do not see any differencies expect during the first week I got a rash to my hand in the same place where I reacted to Chlorella last year for a half year. This time the reaction was only a couple of days but tells that body reacted to this supplement and started sending out something unwanted. Serragold is said to being able to cleanse dead proteins out from the body. I have MS-disease and this is the reason I want to give serrapeptase a real chance and I am planning to use this product at least two years to see what it is capable of doing. I have taken one capsule two or three times daily. One during night and one usually before going to bed and the third during the day when I have been without food at least two hours before and not planning to eat anything for an hour to follow. It is very important to take serrapeptase to an empty stomach to give it the possibility to work. Otherwise it is just used to help in digestion. I trust Enzymedica.

Excellent, Easy To Use Arnica Montana 30C, Homeopathy's #1 Injury Remedy

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Dec 25, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Arnica Montana is a very useful homeopathic remedy to be used at emergencies. Arnica is excellent for bruises and prevents them coming when taking immediately after a fall, for example. Arnica Montana is a traumatic remedy and number one choice to take in trauma in all its varities both mental and physical. Arnica can be used as first aid for shock. Aconitum is also indicated in shock. Arnica is good after overexertion, overworked muscle remedy. Arnica greatly reduces pain, discolouration and swelling after injuries and I think that every family would greatly benefit of having Arnica Montana always at home. Use Arnica after injuries to recover faster from bruising, sprains, fractures, pulled muscles and shin splints. Boiron Arnica Montana is easy to use. You will get one pill a time and can drop it directly into the mouth without touching it. For animals you can add Arnica into their drinking water or place it in their mouth. It is useful too if the animal or people smell the remedy. Usually the remedy is placed under the toungue and you will let it dissolve there. Potency 200 CK is usually stronger in action than potency 30C and is more indicated in intense situations, more severe situations. However, both potencies can be used in similar situations. In injury situations you should first repeat the remedy quite often. It is useful to take Arnica prior to dental work or surgeries. You are welcome to rate & read my other reviews.
