About Me

I first heard about iHerb last year, when someone in my running club promoted this website, (using his promotion code, of course). I am an American living in South Korea, so it is very hard for me to find vitamins and supplements here. I was looking for some prenatal vitamins, so I ordered some from iHerb. I was surprised at how quickly the order came, and how well packaged the products were. The price was also very reasonable compared to other companies, (especially the shipping costs). I have been hooked ever since! I believe that many health problems are linked to nutritional deficiencies. I have read many books on this topic, so most of the supplements I purchase are based on careful research. In a perfect world we would be able to obtain most of the nutrients and minerals we need from our food, but industrial agricultural methods have made this very difficult. For this reason I think supplementation is a necessary evil. If you find my reviews helpful, please rate them.

Best Apple Cider Vinegar

Posted by khessel on Aug 27, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I was first introduced to apple cider vinegar many years ago. I heard that it was a good natural remedy for heart burn. The theory is that you get heart burn when your stomach does not produce enough acid to digest your food. Apple cider vinegar is acidic, so a teaspoon of it at the first sign of heart burn will give you relief. It really works too. I have also used it once when I had a mild case of food poisoning. A few tablespoons of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar and I found relief within hours. There are many other health benefits of apple cider vinegar, but those are the two I have tested. The best apple cider vinegar has the "mother" in it, because it is loaded with enzymes. This brand not only has the "mother" in it but it is organic,unpasteurized, and non-GMO. I also read a book written by Patricia Bragg many years ago about apple cider vinegar, and she is informed and passionate about her business. I like buying from a small business owned by people who stand behind their products. It's part of my consumer philosophy. This is the only brand of apple cider vinegar I buy.

Best Quality

Dr. Mercola's products are superb quality. I am so glad that iHerb offers them. Astaxanthin is supposed to be a powerful antioxidant. I often take this product after being out in the sun to prevent skin damage.

Best Brand

Posted by khessel on Jul 24, 2012 | Verified Purchase

The price on iherb for the product is pretty good. I compared it to the price at a whole foods store in the U.S. last year, and the price on iherb was more competitive. I listened to a podcast about the owner once, and he seems like a respectable, down-to-earth business owner. I like buying from a company where I can put a face to the name, not a big corporation. (I don't mind paying a little bit more for a quality product). I have used this flour to make gluten free wraps, hamburger buns, and even marzipan. (Yum)

Excellent source of vitamin E

Posted by khessel on Aug 23, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Most vitamin E supplements only contain alpha tocopherol. Foods contain the whole vitamin E "complex", so to receive the maximum benefits, it is important to get a supplement that includes beta, delta, and gamma tocppherol, (and this product contains all of them). Fun fact; researchers call vitamin E tocopherol, which means "to beget or carry offspring" in Greek,(info from "Real Food for Mother and Baby" - Nina Planck).

Thanks for your feedback!

Good product

Posted by khessel on Aug 10, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I absolutely LOVE black licorice. I bought this product because it is organic. It tastes pretty good, but it's not the BEST black licorice I have tasted, so I couldn't give it a 5 star rating.

Thanks for your feedback!

Delicious

I used this to make some delicious chocolate covered marzipan. My only negative comment is the amount of product is less than I expected.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great soy sauce

Posted by khessel on Aug 17, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I love having an alternative to the typical soy sauce made from GMO soy beans. It also tastes great.

Thanks for your feedback!

Love this product

Posted by khessel on Jul 25, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I love this chocolate. I was very disappointed when it was discontinued. It is one of my favorite chocolates because it is organic and it has a high cocoa content.
