I am a holistic therapist and personal trainer working in the UK. My interest in nutrition and correct and affordable supplementation brought me to iherb. I hope you find my reviews helpful!

I totally agree with the other one star review. Soybean oil is a nasty, cheap oil. Moreover, it is very likely made from GM soy, as most of the world's supply of soy is GM. WHY ruin an otherwise good product idea (mixed tocopherols) like this? SHAME ON YOU, NOW FOODS! Avoid this product. Show Now Foods and other supplement manufacturers that you expect more of your health supplements.

So much for "all natural"... still contains aluminium salts.

I wish Home Health would remove disodium EDTA from this product.

This comes from China, its organic status is meaningless. I am very disappointed and won't buy it again. Need I say more? This comes from China, a heavily polluted country You just CANNOT TRUST that it is free of contaminants or good quality. What a shame! For more info, read naturalnews dot com - Do yourself a favour and avoid this product and any other "superfoods" from China, except perhaps goji berries (as they come from the mountainous regions) Hope this information helps you keep good health!

I used this after sunbathing... not only did it cool down my skin, but it also removed the excessive redness on my mum's face. Also, the mintiness seems to reduce the itching of the mosquito bites (not a problem here in the UK, but definitely in other countries...). UPDATE: It currently (July 2015) scores *3* overall on skindeep database PROBLEMS INGREDIENTS: 1) SODIUM HYDROXYMETHYLGLYCINATE (FORMALDEHYDE RELEASER !!! - Score 6 !!!) Cancer, Allergies/immunotoxicity, Contamination concerns (FORMALDEHYDE), Use restrictions - Data: Limited - 2) PHENOXYETHANOL (Score: 4) Allergies/immunotoxicity, Irritation (skin, eyes, or lungs), Organ system toxicity (non-reproductive), Occupational hazards, Use restrictions Not happy about these ingredients, so I am looking elsewhere. I also think the tube has become smaller over the years and therefore the product is more expensive than before.

It seems to reduce intestinal discomfort and increase my energy levels. I took it several times after a bad episode of "bad tummy" while travelling and to help get rid of H.Pylori (together with mastic gum, broccoli extract, daily cabbage salad, ginger, turmeric and oregano). Well, I don't have H.Pylori anymore and I didn't take triple therapy or any other antibiotic. I recommend a period cleanse with this product, at least autumn and spring.

I buy this because it contains no nasty eccipients and is 100% magnesium bisglycinate, NOT a buffered form with lots of magnesium oxide in it. Taste: I would not describe it as pleasant, but had not really noticed it frankly. I mix it with water, mix it well and drink it. I am however someone who drinks green powders/drinks all day. You might want to mix in a smoothie if the taste bothers you.

I used to love this product with its balanced and complete vitamin E. However, although I double-check the ingredients before purchasing every time (including this time), this particular time (October 2017) I received a different bottle of "MRM Complete E" with what must be the new formulation. Ingredients: SESAME OIL, sunflower lecithin, carob, beeswax, gelatin, glycerin and purified water Problems are: - sesame oil is not very stable - sesame oil is mainly omega 6 in it (I am trying to reduce omega 6s in my diet) - I seem to be allergic to sesame oil, so I would never have purchased if I had known the ingredients had changed since I last purchased - iherb really need to show up-to-date information about the products they sell. This means the manufacturers need to alert iherb of any formulation changes. - not too happy with MRM for sticking sesame oil in this formulation Hope this helps other people.
