As a designer of clothing and accessories from exclusively upcycled (that's fancy for "recycled"!) t-shirts, mens' shirting and vintage fabrics, environmental concerns are my priority. Returning to a vegetarian lifestyle after 30 years of carnivore-ism was easy - vegan not so much. BUT... it's doable and I think we should all give it a shot. Cheese is not vital for your happiness:-) iHerb has so many fantastic vegan supplements it makes it easy for a quicky breakfast shake for busy folks that don't want to struggle with what to choose. A huge salad for lunch, vegetarian protein, grains and veggies for dinner - done! Simple, easy and delicious. Check Vegnews website - http://vegnews.com/ - if you need recipes and links.... Eat GREEN, be GREEN, buy GREEN! Cheers to your health, Cherie
My 10-yr-old son has mild Sensory Integration Disorder and consequently can't shut himself down for sleep. Knowing Melatonin is used for kids on ADD meds I researched dose, efficacy and safety extensively - this is what I found: very safe and effective but even adults will have the best results with very small doses - LESS than 1MG (MIT study). We have split 1mg pills in quarters for 2 years and had TREMENDOUS SUCCESS! Try it.

Bought this for adult ADD symptoms and the resultant anxiety/lack of energy. After 2 weeks I can say I think it's working very well! I have more motivation, energy and ability to finish things I usually would forget or drop. Female 5'4" and I take 4 pills/day (2000mg). I'm less overwhelmed and discouraged too. LOVE it!
I use this to thicken non-dairy home made yogurts. good stuff
use this for thickening homemade vegan yogurts - it's so hard to find, glad to find it here!
Terrific, easily digestible and less "powdery, gritty" in smoothies than some proteins. Mixes up very well in a shaker with the wire ball.

I am in the pre-menapausal stages and have wacky, irregular periods and mood swings. I really dislike the depression and anger that I get with PMS, so I decided to take this. I swear after several weeks I feel emotionally better and I didn't have much by way of cramps this go-round. I take 2-3 capsules/day. I'd go so far as to say it's helping my skin break-out less as well.
Makes great Chia pudding!
The first week I used this I had a rash like response, but it went away and now my skin feels smooth. Plan to get the rest of the line

I think this is a wonderful vitamin, but it is very grassy tasting! Kids sometimes break it in half and swallow the halves instead of chewing. They do take it though!

best nutrition ever, but my kids find it too bitter-the goji - so if you want it for them you may only have success in a smoothie! otherwise perfect product
