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.

I bought this product to make some chocolate covered marzipan, and it was delicious. I have also used it to make chocolate milk. I love the fact that it is affordable and organic. ;)
This is the type of protein powder recommended in "The Four Hour Body", by Tim Ferris. There is NO SUGAR in it. The price on iHerb is also really good. I ordered it from another company once, (before I found iHerb), and it was almost double the cost, (with shipping).
Great product, I used it to make some raw "breakfast bites" in my dehydrator. 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 am happy with the product. No complaints.
The quality of this product is good, but I had a hard time taking it. (It was a challenge when I was struggling with morning sickness). The gel filled caps are easier to take. I found myself making my own gel caps with this product, then I just switched brands.

I didn't like the taste of this product. It just wasn't what I expected.
I bought this product to prevent stretch marks. It might really work, but it is difficult to handle, so I wasn't using it every day. The product I am currently using organic coconut oil, and it is so much easier to work with.

I bought this product to make "coconut ice cream". It was just O.K. To be fair, it could have been the recipe. I love coconut products, but I prefer to use coconut oil in my smoothies, and coconut milk.

I bought this product because it was fairly inexpensive, and I didn't know how long it would take for me to get pregnant. If I could go back and do it again, I would have bought the more expensive brand. This one does not have enough magnesium in it.
Not really sure about the rave reviews about the effects of this on skin. I read that it is supposed to even out skin tone, and it didn't really seem to work. It is good as a moisturizer.
