After taking the pills, it builds up on the upper part of the stomach and it becomes this reflux situation. Without even burping I get this sensation of the taste of the collagen up my throat and I experience fur on my tongue. And I feel slightly nauseous for hours. Not only I tolerated it poorly, but so did my mother. And she doesn't even have the same troubles with food substances like I do. Strange. Even though I personally had bad experiences with the collagen, this product is apparently derivated from healthy sources, so I rate it neutrally and give it three stars.
Krill oil is often much more agreeable to the stomach than ordinary cod liver oil. Sensitive people should try this instead of cod liver oil. It is good for cardiovascular health. This product is good. I have nothing more to add.
I suffer from lots of allegies and food intolerances, but luckily I find that I tolerate most Larabar energy bars ok. I have bought almost all the different Larabar enegy bars in a matter of two months, and I rank this highly; this one to me gets the highest rating, together with Larabar's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. I had expected more fresh and delicous jelly in it though. It was more like dried up jam. But well, that's how it is: Healthy stuff rarely tastes as fantastic as the really unhealthy food stuff.

I am hypersensible to quite a lot of substances, and with NOW's L-Citrulline, I would feel sick for each capsule I took. And a certain pain would be felt in my stomach. (I would also react on a third brand to which name I now don't recall.) With Primaforce's Citrulline Malate powder, I don't feel bad in my stomach at all. On NOW's Citrulline declaration it doesn't reveal the process to which their citrulline is produced. May it be some other type of chemical compounds used as a basis than the ones Primaforce uses? Because Primaforce's Citrulline is made up by Citrulline Malate. (Perhaps NOW's product is made up by something else than 'malate'?) Unlike NOW's product, Primaforce's Citrulline product has no helping agents in it. (I doubt it is the helping agents that I react on regarding NOW's Citrulline product, since I tolereate those same help agents in other products, so I do believe it is their citrulline itself I react on.) I really love Primaforce's Citrulline product, and I feel great effect by taking it. Beware though, that this powder has a very strong acidic/citrus taste. Significantly more than the two other products that I have tried. But that should be no problem if you mix it with juice. (You may wonder why I know that NOW's product has a less strong acidic/citric taste, since they have their citrulline product packed into gelatine capsules: Unless a product tastes absolutely awful, I always open the gelatine capsules and pour the content straight on my tongue.) Primaforce Citrulline Malate product undoubtly gets top score from me.

Hadn't it been for the Xanthan gum I would call it 'all pure'. Xanthan gum isn't a bad product, but I feel it makes the gel less pure. Of course, had it been more pure, it would be more runny again. But a runny aloe gel doesn't bother me - for my use. But I truly love this gel! It is the closest to another gel I used years ago. If you - or someone in your family - get a burn from the sun, use this as soon as you discover the burn, and I can almost guarantee you that within hours, the redness is gone. This is of course, if you haven't got yourself a second degree burn. But even if the burn is severe, I believe that this aloe gel is able to prevent some of the worst damage on the skin. Other people use aloe gel as a skin moisturizer. I personally don't like any aloe gel products on my skin on a daily basis, as they dry on and feel like a stiff mask on my face.)

This chocolate tastes just as it is named; in addition to the chocolate it's a hint of toffee and almonds. And it has a sweetness that carries me back to my childhood; it's a typical milky and sweet chocolate that should appeal to most kids. Having intolerance against dairies, I only tasted a small bite though, for this review. Five stars.
First the taste of the dark chocolate appeared with a hint of vanilla. Next came the burning sensation from the chilli. And at last came a really desired taste of berries. It all really balanced so well; the nice bitterness of the chocolate, the spice from the chilli and finally the fresh taste of the berries. Finally as the overwhelming variety of different tastes faded, a really nice vague sweetness remained in my mouth. So many nice tastes in one bite, hence my subject line! The taste of sour was fortunately not included here. I would not enjoy the taste of pickled herring along with the other tastes ;-) Of course I wasn't serious about the headline though, as we need a healthy rich diet. I have only tasted this chocolate today, but I already love it!

I don't really suffer from dry hands. But when I tested this hand cream, I was amazed by the neutral smell of it. And as a sensitive person, I didn't get any bad reaction to the smell of it. Since the ingredients are natural, one can use the cream to other areas than the hands. I don't use it on my hands, but other places. On my skin of course - it becomes too expensive to rub this cream on all the walls! :o)
This is great product for a great price. The taste is a sweet and vaguely bitter one, and my stomach tolerates it. (I am sensitive to lots of stuff.) I had an overall good feeling afterwards, and even though I haven't tried the product long enough to really experience the long-term benefits from using it, I really have a good feeelng about it, so I am willing to give it five stars.
I have many allergies and food intolerances, and have a lessened appetite due to all the food substances I need to cut from my diet. So I search for products that may increase my appetite, as well has having lots of calories in them. I tolerate very little fruits, so I almost consider it a small miracle that I tolerate the Larabar energy bars well. I have tried most Larabar energy bars (in a matter of as short time span as two months), and by far, I must say that this one ranks high to me; it is one of my favourites. As you can see from what is most popular in regards to sales number, you can tell that this is not only my personal favourite; this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip has quite a universal appeal. I have never really had a sweet tooth, but of some reason I like most of the Larabar energy bars. Tastewise I recommend this specific product.
