I got this after some lab work revealing I was low in b12, and being informed by the health care practitioner that this is indeed the superior form of b12. Haven't been without it since, been about 2 years. I noticed a difference when I began to take this every 2-3 days along with 5000 iu D3 daily, which I was also low in. Around the same time I found out I had some food sensitivities and started to avoid those foods, so could be a combo of all these things that made me feel better, but I will definitely stick with this. Might try their higher dose to take less often next. I like Jarrow, have used several of their products.
the secret's out
Not much to say, just a great clay to incorporate into your routine. I always have it around and try to use weekly, I leave on for longer than the label says. Works best when mixed with vinegar, water makes it clumpy. Sometimes I use part vinegar and part water, or hydrosol, or aloe gel. Does turn you bright red for a little bit! Makes more "applications" than the label suggests, for me.
Can't imagine going back to pastes and gels again. I really like this, have tried mint and cinnamon. It's really not that hard to get used to. People complaining about it being messy might try not squeezing the bottle, just let it fall out, it's not that bad. Prefer the taste to overly sweet stuff. No glycerin, that is why I tried it in the first place.
I like Carlson brand. Just noticing it's a little misleading, as it says may contain up to 30% other fish, but the front says Norwegian Salmon Oil as if that's the only source. Better than some though, that don't tell you much about the source or purity testing, etc. I take two a day. Good for a lot of things.
Lasts a long time, good value. Prefer this to their scented varieties, and use this for my hair, hands, shaving, etc, too. I don't find it to be especially moisturizing, but it also is not drying.
Like this brand
The scent reminds me of Doublemint gum. This was fine, (I have normal hair that is not very fussy) but for the sake of simplicity and not having multiple huge bottles in the shower, I just use the unscented body wash for my hair too, which works just as well for me, and add my own essential oils sometimes. Like that it is SLS/paraben free, fair trade, short simple ingredient list...
This is effective, and I like the texture, but this formula has dimethicone and I think the previous formula had parabens. Also just a long ingredient list and not sure all that needs to be in there. I think a lot of the hype about all the "chemicals" is unfounded but personally I still prefer to look for something a little "cleaner".
lives up to "superior taste" claim
I like Carlson brand, took one bottle of this after finishing a much more expensive fermented brand. I did not notice any difference in anything while taking cod liver oil. I am sure it's good for me, but I didn't repurchase. This is easy to take, just tastes like lemony oil (though swallowing a straight spoonful of any oil, no matter how tasty, is a little gag-inducing to me). More economical than buying capsules. I would choose this one over some of the less expensive brands.
does the job
I prefer to make my own lip balms, but picked this for the spf 18 for days at the beach, etc. I think I wanted cherry but it was out of stock. Tastes good, nice texture. Not too waxy and doesn't turn you white like some SPF products. Doesn't seem to break me out, which can be a concern depending on ingredients. I don't use it often.
Not so great as deodorant.
Smells great, but the alcohol is irritating and it isn't a very effective deodorant for me. Also kind of expensive for small amount. Nice as a perfume though. Probably wouldn't buy again.
