I have been a customer of iHerb since early 2010. I don't review products that I haven't used for at least a month. I will always tell my own honest opinion. If there's a better product available that I'm aware of, I will tell about it. If you are a new customer at iHerb.com, you can use my discount code NEN414 and save $10 on your first order.

I can clearly feel the difference in my health. I feel more perky and energized for the day and I sleep better too. However, for the first couple of days when I started to take this chlorella, I experienced some of the common side effects like mild headache and stomach cramps. But now, I honestly feel a lot better than ever before. I have always suffered from cold hands and feet but just a few days ago, I realized that's not the case anymore. My hands and feet stay warm and it simply feels great, yet a little strange though! I have also noticed that this greatly decreased my cravings for sweets. Daily chromium helps in that too but now I rather avoid sugar than crave for it - which is just great! I don't miss sugar at all :) I genuinely recommend this product to anyone who cares about their own health.

Someone already mentioned that there's no sign of citrus flavor. The capsules doesn't smell or taste anything like lemon or orange at all, and the actual fish oil has a mild fishy taste (I actually chewed one capsule). It doesn't taste like rancid, spoiled or anything like that, though. I think that the fishy taste could have been stronger but I was initially hoping this wouldn't taste like fish at all. So it's not as bad as it could have been. One capsule was enough to give me fishy burps for 30 minutes or so, but I'm quite prone to get fishy burps from fish oils anyway. The total amount of EPA and DHA per serving is 60% which is very nice. This fish oil contains 28.7 ppb (28.7 ng/g) of PCBs (Lot # 2013 0420-1). So you'll get 57.4 ng/g PCBs per serving (2 softgels). That's pretty high PCB content as one serving covers 64% of the upper limit for California (90 ng/g per day). However, the concentration of other heavy metals/toxins is very low: equal or less than 0.01 ppm (ug/g). That's well below California Proposition 65 upper limits. You can find these test results straight from Controlled Labs homepage, or from Bodybuilding forum (use Google to find the thread). It's great to see that Controlled Labs publishes this information so openly. This shouldn't be something that makes one stand out of the crowd, however. It should be a common practise for every fish oil producer. Anyways, I'll finish the whole bottle that I ordered but I guess I'll try another brand next time because I really don't care about the fishy taste :)

I and my brother have noticed that this stuff really helps to moisturize our dry eyes. We don't need to use any eyedrops for our eyes when taking 2 of these capsules at once per day. We found out that it's not enough to take 1 capsule two times daily. Both capsules needs to be taken at once. If we forgot to take this herb, our eyes turns reddish sometimes and they starts to sting. Absolutely great herb. Highly recommended.

I've been using more expensive carnosine products for years here in Finland but after trying this carnosine, I won't turn back to the old ones :) This does work just as well as the more expensive, equivalent products. Highly recommended!

I'm a bit disappointed that the original, 240 tablet version of this product is discontinued. Now I need to order two of these smaller bottles instead of a one big bottle. I have ordered several vitamin C products from iHerb but this is by far the best one. I hope that this product won't be discontinued anytime soon as it's absolutely perfect. Besides, I like the fact that this vitamin C is in tablet form instead of a plastic-like capsule.

This is undoubtedly a quality product that is guaranteed to include at least 5000 IU of Vitamin D3. This is a "must have" freebie product and even without this free trial campaign, it's also a really good deal with a price tag under $10 for 120 softgels.

Every bottle of this magnesium comes with a certificate of laboratory analysis which shows that this product indeed contains at least 200 mg of chelated magnesium in every tablet. The price is also great. Be sure to always choose the chelated form of magnesium because it has the best bioavailability. Highly Recommeded!

Few weeks ago I got pretty bad allergy symptoms that caused by cat dander so I gave a try to this homeopathic remedy. However, after taking 2 pills per every 2 hours for 2 times my allergy symptoms seemed to become even worse so I had to stop taking these pills and take a real antihistamine medicine (Xyzal) that made the allergy symptoms to disappear in few hours. I can't recommend this product to any person who has clinically proven allergy - especially if you have severe allergy symptoms caused by tree pollen/dust/pet dander etc. I think the effectiveness of this product is based on a phenomenon called 'placebo' and therefore this remedy can't replace any real antihistamine medicine.

I used the whole bottle by taking 3 softgels daily but I didn't feel any benefits. In fact, I felt like I was forgetting things more easily than before. I can't recommend this product to anyone. For those who are looking for a better phosphatidylserine product, I recommend Source Naturals Phosphatidyl Serine Matrix. It's also cheaper ;)

I have been drinking this tea for the last 2 weeks now and I have to say that this is really great tasting rooibos tea. The taste is rich and aromatic - just like a real quality rooibos tea should be. Rooibos has naturally a mild sweet taste so there's not necessarily a need to add more sugar into it. I can't give any lower rating than 5 stars to this tea as the price is also great. Highly recommended!
