I have been taking this for low thyroid function that was causing me to shed hair constantly. I have felt more stabilized energy level, and hair loss stopped almost immediately since taking this. Now I have new hair growth showing at hairline!

Just moved into a home with water softener and couldn't shake this brain fog and lethargy once the Texas weather started heating up. Did some research and found that softened water can strip essential mineraals from your body. Especially potassium needed for nerve and brain function. Took this potassium and felt better in 20 minutes. It seemed very easily usable by my body.I use it whenever I might have hydration issues from excessive sweating etc.

High stress hubby vents alot less on the family after a hard day at work. A 50% travel schedule and extremely demanding job wear him thin. His best release is excercise, but there isn't always time when he is up before dawn and running nonstop until dark. 7-Keto does not give a buzz or noticeable sensation for him, but we all miss it badly if he forgets it or runs out. This just helps keep an even keel under tremendous pressure. For me it is a gentle energy booster and sometimes, a bit aphrodesiac... Which is also good for the marriage;)

Seven pregnancies and seven bouts with severe post partum depression have left me a bit of an expert here. Pregnancy left me completely depleted hormonally and immunologically. I have tried countless supplements after each baby, to help my body recover. After the 6th, I finally discovered this. I took it along with freezedried bovine thyroid to repair my thyroid/hormone balance and therefore my mood and immunity. The energy is just there without jitters or irritability. This has all the ingredients (and more) prescribed by my naturepath and contained in his pricey proprietary brands. I have experienced sustained energy, better sleep patterns, less ravenous cravings while lactating, and easier weight loss with proper nutrition and exercise. BUT MOST OF ALL, THE HORRID MOOD SWINGS AND CONSTANT IRRITABILITY WERE GRADUALLY SOOTHED AWAY OVER ABOUT 1-2 WEEKS. My family and I are so happy to have found this. Please research your concern carefully, and get proper advice for severe depression! But do consider this as a godsend for you or your loved one. It definitely was for me.
My nails were much stronger and faster growing afer just a couple weeks taking one cap per day. I used to have frquent/constant skin breakouts, but now just a couple days in the monthly cycle. Skin texture is softer and more resilient after just a few weeks taking Borage. Hair will take some time to notice, but seems shinier already. It looks like I have some new hair growth with extra new hairs at hairline. I hope this will help regain some hair thickness lost from pregnancies.

The package is a little deceptive: this is not pure E oil. It IS 100% natural, but NOT 100% pure E. The IU per use is quite low. There is alot of olive oil mixed in. Read label photo carefully to make sure this is what you are looking for.

I have given this NOW odorless garlic to my seven kids for years at the first sign of a runny nose, sore throat,etc and have saved many sick days. Wierd, but true: I have always called these "garlic candy," and the kids have ALL gone for it. The oil inside is slightly sweet with a mild garlic scent...For babies who are old enough to digest foods other than milk, puncture or bite the end of softgel and squeeze oil into the baby's mouth or mix into food. For competent chewers, just let them munch it. Small softgel is easy to swallow with water for beginners. If you go with the "candy" spin, store out of reach as a couple of my kids have downed large quantities on the sly. Yum. No harsh side effect that we noted, though. We use NOW super odorless with hawthorn and cayenne for hubby and me, but these have been excellent for the kids or for adults with tender tummies. As always, fantastic price and shipping from Iherb.

I use this on a regular basis for me and for my large dogs. It has kept my dogs parasite free without pharmaceutical poisons for years. Sprinkle over food or treat daily and there is no problem getting it down the pups. I calculate dose by their weight so this has been very economical vs pharmaceuticals over the years.
This is a wonderful morning beverage. I stir into hot milk or almond milk for extra creaminess. Sweeten with stevia or flavored stevia drops for a locarb way to ease into your day. Also a great add in for a chocolate protein shake for yummy mocha flavor without artificial ingredients or added caffiene. I have never had coffee, because I have always loved PERO so much. My grandma used Pero to KICK THE COFFEE HABIT, and I used to sip it with her... And now I give it to my kids instead of cocoa, because they don't do well with chocolate. They LOVE Pero. This is at least a dollar cheaper than the grocery store IF you can even find it there.

Love this little bonus sample that showed up when I ordered a larger bottle. Love what 7-Keto does to level my high-stress hubby out. Love the prices and quick service at IHerb. Thank you!
