About Me

iHerb has been my go-to shop for a couple of years now in my quest to find supplements to help with ME/CFS and Osteoporosis. I have a dysfunctional methylation pathway and I'm currently following a combined Methylation/Mitochondrial support protocol. Using *Metafolin* and *AdenoylB12* my homocysteine has gone from dangerously high (48.1) to normal levels (9.1) and my anemia has also improved. For Osteoporosis *Strontium citrate* has greatly increased my bone mineral density. After 5 years my spine T-score went from -2.8 to -0.91 while my hip went from -2.6 to -2.25. Other helpful supplements/therapies include *Melatonin* (very helpful for sleep. I've found sublingual best) *Charcoal* (for IBS) *Yoga/Meditation*

Great as antiperspirant but stings like hell!

Posted by fromstrawtomore on Sep 18, 2012 | Verified Purchase

This is possibly the best underarm antiperspirant, either natural or chemical, I have ever used. Three sprays under each arm provides fantastic resistance to sweating. Using this magnesium oil elsewhere on the body is more problematic because it STINGS and BURNS quite a lot. So I have two pump packs, one 100% pure for use as an antiperspirant and one diluted 1:2 (oil:water) for muscles. Even with that dilution it stings, but it's tolerable.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great as moisturizer, deodorant and in smoothies

Posted by fromstrawtomore on Feb 12, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I use raw virgin coconut oil more on my body than as a food these days. It's excellent as a whole body moisturizer and I make my own antiperspirant/deodorant with it (2 T of coconut oil mixed with 2 T of baking soda, 3 T of arrowroot and essential oils).

Stops IBS symptoms in their tracks

Posted by fromstrawtomore on Sep 12, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Charcoal is a mainstay in my supplement drawer due to mild IBS. I take a couple at the first sign of a flare up (gas, loose stools) and it does help. Be aware that it does blacken stools and can increase constipation. Also the capsule shell is made from gelatin so vegans will need to look elsewhere.

Best sunblock/sunscreen until they changed the formula

Posted by fromstrawtomore on Sep 12, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Before 2013 this went on very easily and wasn't greasy and unlike some other sunscreens doesn't cause an acne breakout. But since then it is a lot thicker and similar to most other zinc oxide based sunscreens. Still good but not great.

Scent-sational!

Great for hand and body washing. Mild but fresh peppermint scent and gel like consistency.

Active form of folic acid for Methylation Protocol

Posted by fromstrawtomore on Oct 04, 2010 | Verified Purchase

Using this, as part of the Methylation/Simplified Yasko protcol for ME/CFS, has helped eliminate my anemia and reduce high homocysteine levels (combined with B12). I also have the MTHFR gene defect (homozygous) so this form of folic acid, the most bio-available, is important to help bypass my troubled genetics.

Improved T-scores significantly

Posted by fromstrawtomore on Feb 12, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Using Strontium Bone Maker as directed (2 caps = 680 mg) has improved my Bone Mineral Density considerably. In five years my spine T-score went from -2.8 to -0.91 while hip went from -2.6 to -2.25. Very impressive.

Just like a chocolate bounty - only chewy. Contains sulphites.

Posted by fromstrawtomore on Sep 18, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I do love the taste of this bar, although it's a fraction too sweet. The main negative is the inclusion of sulphites (sodium metabisulfite) and artificial flavours, which makes this only a very occasional treat for me.

Didn't do nada

Posted by fromstrawtomore on Sep 15, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Really didn't notice any effect from this. I'll stick with sublingual melatonin in future.

Thanks for your feedback!

Love the smell

Posted by fromstrawtomore on Feb 12, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I love all the Dr. Woods Shea Vision's but this is my favorite. Lovely almond scent.

Thanks for your feedback!
