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!

Not sure this is helping. I am feeling more tired and occasionally have a rash. Also, I for one am not too keen on bioperine. I know it is said to improve absorption of other substances, but my homeopath thinks black pepper just sits on top of the blood, creating sludge. Yuck!

This tea has just enough bergamot to spoil the "just green tea" taste but not enough bergamot flavour to appeal to Earl Grey tea lovers. Please add more bergamot !!!

I loved my first bag of Starwest Botanicals. It tasted a bit like licorice and helped with digestion. However, the last batch tastes like dry/rotten fennel-shaped and unappetising vegetable seeds. I hope this is just an off batch.

I took one last night and had initially severe thirst, then nausea, indigestion and a bit of a headache until this afternoon. Just taken my second dose this evening and, again, thirst, headache, nausea and indigestion! (in spite of taking digestive enzymes, probiotics, liver and gallblader herbs, drinking lots away from meals etc). It would probably have a nice effect on my body if it were absorbed properly but something in this product is definitely not working for me. Back to Co-Q10 for me. 1 start for being non-GMO.

Been using as a moisturiser and it's ok (if you can stand the smell). However, taking it internally, it did nothing for me. It did not stop heartburn, in fact it probably made it worse, due to the citric acid. I am now suffering badly with fire-like burning in my stomach... been lasting for days now. I would like a version without citric acid!!! I think that would have more potential. Generally like this brand and the fact they use minimal additives.

Great that it contains sunflower (not soy) lecithin. But, it also contains "modified food starch" and "carrageenan" I am sensitive to the latter so I could not use this product and I had to give it to friends. They also could not take it, so it ended up in the bin. California Gold Nutrition, remove the carraggeenan please?

Disappointing that it contains the inferior cyanocobalamin (not the methyl form).

Yes, it doesn't dissolve well, but I don't care, as I simply add it to my daily smoothie. :-) All in all, a good way to get acai and resveratrol.

I prefer this one with green tea, the others by themselves

I really like the way this conditioner detangles my long, thin and slightly wavy hair just by leaving it on a couple of minutes. Nice conditioning and it even gives my hair some lift!
