I live in an idyllic rural setting well away from the city pollution that caused me to develop numerous health problems. Products I am purchasing from iherb are playing a large part in helping me make slow but steady steps towards regaining my former healthy state.

It is very convenient to be able to take a vitamin D-3 supplement in liquid form as it is easy to add to food. I do wish however that NOW would bring back the screw in dropper. Using this dropper, it was easy to add the dose you wished to take however with the new dropper where you need to invert the bottle it is not easy. It takes forever if you wait for a drop to emerge from the bottle. If you give the bottle a downwards shake often you get more drops than you want. I never had a problem with the screw in dropper separating as indicated by another reviewer.
r Lipoic acid is more biologically active than the synthetic s lipoic acid. Unless otherwise indicated supplements will be a mix of r and s ala. This was the most reasonably priced r-ala I could find. ALA is said to be more effective if taken in conjunction with acetyl-L-carnitine.
This product contains an amazing mix of super foods and works well when mixed into a smoothie.
This book contains some useful information about berries, greens and mushrooms.
I use both this product and Source Naturals DigestActiv. Because I do not tolerate the capsules, I empty the contents of capsules and mix it in with food. The DigestActive can impart an unpleasant flavour to some foods and I find the Daily Enzymes are a better product in that regard.
With a family history of osteoporosis I am keen to minimize my risks via diet, lifestyle and supplements therefore I consider vitamin K2 a must in this regard. This product would not have been my first choice for this vitamin but is the one I could find that had a reasonable level of the vitamin that was not made using soy and is a reasonable price. As I am soy intolerant, this eliminated most other products.
This product has a good combination of substances (silymarin, dandelion and turmeric) which offer protection for the liver.
We have bought this product to give as a small present to friends and have had positive feed back from those we have given it too. The vanilla scent is a lot stronger than the orange.

This sample size provides a convenient sized container for use away from home.

Prior to taking this supplement, I had a difficult time finding supplements I could tolerate due to Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Because of this I started this supplement by taking only minute amounts at the beginning and building up. Each time I increased the amount I would notice a strange feeling in my head that was quite different from other reactions I have had. I did persist and found that this reaction would disappear as my body adjusted to the higher dose. Once I was able to take a full capsule each day, I found that was able to take other supplements with a greatly reduced likelihood of intolerance.
