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 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.

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).

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!

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

when a product is too good, it gets discontinued. Bring back my favourite vitamin B complex please!!!

Been using for a while in my hot chocolate. It gives a bit of a kick and it supports my adrenals at the same time. So much cheaper than capsules and great for my pick-me-up chocolate.... Currently discontinued. PLEASE : If you like this product, please email iherb asking them to stock it again! Let's get it back! They have told me they do listen to customer requests.

Don't bite into these, let them dissolve in your mouth. They work well to boost my immune system when I feel I may be low in zinc or when travelling (particularly flying). However: - they make me slightly nauseous at times - I dislike the fructose in them. Nature's Way, please remove the fructose!!!
