Aloha, I'm a geneticist and I'm tangentially interested in supplements and natural living. I've tried about, erm, a gazillion products and most of them I never re-order. But there are several that I have found to work, and work well. So if you're interested in my opinions, please feel free to peruse my reviews and look for items that I have given four- or five-stars — those are the products that actually work and that I order again and again from iHerb. Mahalo nui loa, and aloha!

This Smells Great!

Posted by HawaiianViking on Sep 05, 2012

I have more faith in nutritional products when they smell fresh and natural. Often, ground cloves, in powder or capsule form, smell stale, but not Kroeger brand cloves! I used these cloves together with Gaia Sweet Wormwood and Black Walnut hull tincture as a potent parasite cleanse, as I've done several times in the past. I've tried a few brands of cloves and (short of grinding your own cloves) this is the best option, if my bottle was any indication of the product's general quality. Also, the price is good for the quality received. Five stars from me.

"WOW!"

Posted by HawaiianViking on Oct 24, 2012

I've been taking Now Foods, Maca, for several weeks and "Wow!" is really what I find myself saying all the time. I've been amazed at the pleasant buzz of energy that I get about one-half hour after taking a capsule, a shot of energy that gently tapers off throughout the day. My workout training is better and, in general, I feel better when taking this product. Another pleasant bonus: These capsules smell wonderful, in a fresh, berry-like sort of way. I have tried taking it in the late afternoon and it's not been very successful; I've had trouble falling asleep. I have noticed, also, that if I take Maca continuously for several weeks its efficacy starts to diminish. I think it's best to take it for shorter periods — periods of maybe a few weeks at a time — then to switch to another supplement with similar effects for another period, before returning to Maca.

Powerful Stuff

Posted by HawaiianViking on Sep 05, 2012

Universal Nutrition, Animal Stak, Testosterone Optimizers are powerful: I've noticed a significant improvement in my workouts while I've been taking this product. It's a good alternative to dangerous and/or illegal substances, but it's not without its drawbacks: This product is expensive. For 21 Packs, it's not the best value, and you'll probably need more than just 21 Packs to reach and maintain your training goals. For me personally, this product has given me a headache, upset my stomach and has been taxing to my liver, so it's not the easiest regimen to maintain. Still, it's probably worth it, since it is that effective.

Surprisingly Filling

Posted by HawaiianViking on Aug 25, 2012

If you're like me and don't eat meat, you're constantly looking for new sources of protein, sources other than the usual whey and soy standbys. That's why I like Beanitos, they have a respectable amount of protein and they are surprisingly filling, even to the point of being a bit heavy. Even better, they are gluten-free, so I can serve them to my gluten sensitive friends. I'll buy these again and again, probably.

I'm Impressed

Posted by HawaiianViking on Nov 08, 2012

First the taste: It is sweet, but it's not quite honey-like. The consistency is a little grainy and the aftertaste is earthy. Regarding the results: I've found that within about an hour of having a teaspoon of Y.S. Eco Bee Farms, Royal Jelly & Pollen, in Honey I'm revived and ready to go, even if I was feeling tired or sleepy before. I like to have it in the afternoon, mixed into plain Greek yoghurt or plain skyr/skjør. I have had my friends try it and they have had similar experiences, too. I would hesitate to give it to children, however, or to those with compromised immune function. I will re-order since I like the results and I don't have any real complaints, but I would prefer that the manufacturer certifies this product as organic and I'd ask them to consider adding propolis to the formula.

Helps Joints and Skin

Posted by HawaiianViking on Feb 28, 2013

I like the formulation containing both Hyaluronic Acid and MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane, a kind of Sulfur). It's been my experience, after several months, that my back and knee feel much better, and seem to be cracking and aching less than in recent memory. Even better, my skin feels great; It's as though the whole body, inside and out, is being moisturized and lubricated. In general I've had good experiences with Now Foods products, and regarding this specific product, I'm a satisfied customer.

Your Liver Will Say "Mahalo!"

Posted by HawaiianViking on Nov 08, 2012

I've been taking Kroeger Herb Co, Complete Concentrates, Milk Thistle to ameliorate symptoms from migraine headaches. I have noticed a reduction in the severity of migraines, and I've noticed that a dull, nagging pain in my right side is gone when I take this product. I'm convinced that Milk Thistle is working for me, and I appreciate that Kroeger Herb Co doesn't use fillers or additives in this product. My only wish is that I knew exactly where the Milk Thistle was being grown and processed, and that its production was certified organic by a respected institution.

Earthy, Satisfying

Posted by HawaiianViking on Apr 07, 2013

Vetiver Oil comes from the root of the tropical grass Chrysopogon zizanioides. It's related to citronella, lemongrass, nagramotha, and palmarosa, but is distinct and unique among its relatives for an especially earthy, rich, woody, wet-yet-clean scent. Vetiver is a common basenote in perfumery, though it's rare to encounter it as a solitary note. From what I understand, Vetiver is a tenacious grass not commonly cultivated with fertilizers or pesticides, and because extraction is usually by the steam method, an organic version of this oil may not be entirely necessary. However, erring on the side of safety, it's good that Organic Vetiver is available.

A Solid Four-Star Product

Posted by HawaiianViking on Dec 27, 2012

I like Universal Nutrition's products in general and N1-T, Natural Testosterone Supplement is no exception. The formula seems thoughtfully designed, though I'm suspicious that the average user can expect "to nearly double testosterone", as the manufacturer claims. Tribulus (protodioscin) does mimic Luteinizing hormone (LH), which in turn stimulates Leydig cell production of testosterone in the testes. However, indipendent clinical trials of Tribulus and its effects on human testosterone have shown mixed results. Other (probably) effective ingredients include avena (avenacosides A & B) and "patented longjack (Eurypeptides)", though it's beyond me what "patented" longjack means. While I like this product, I give it four stars and not five because, to me, the price is a bit too high, and I'd also like to see a few other ingredients added to this formula, like Maca or Mucuna pruriens.

Not Impressed

Posted by HawaiianViking on Nov 12, 2012

These Cotton Rounds are made from organic cotton, but that's about all that can be said for them. While they are organic, the cotton is bleached, not natural, so it's not exactly the most environmentally-friendly product. It would be better if they were well made and functional, but these fall apart and stretch easily, which makes them pretty much useless. I won't re-buy.
