My name is Morgan Wellinger and I am a college student double majoring in Journalism and Visual Arts. I was born and raised in Long Island, NY. My main interests and hobbies include drumming, photography, music, writing and reading, health and nutrition, exploring, surfing, nature, and astrology. My health is my top priority and living a holistic and nutrionally-dense, healthy lifestyle is what my life is all about. For the most part, I am a very adventurous and audacious individual, but I do need my quiet, personal, reflective time every now and then.
Maybe i'm just imagining it, but I feel like these have been helping my hair a lot. It seems a lot shinier and silkier. I love that that these are in capsules instead of tablets, so I can just open the capsules instead of crushing them. I mainly bought these for skin health, (I take them orally, as well as occasionally mixing them in with my moisturizer, as pantothenic acid speeds wounds healing and improves skin texture and elasticity) I highly recommend these. I've bought a few different brands of pantothenic acid and usually the 500mg only account for 5000% DV but these count for %7250 DV, so these are more potent than other brands!!! Jarrow is an awesome brand too, I highly recommend this if you are shopping around for pantothenic acid!
I have been putting 4 of these capsules, along with 2 small envelopes of Knox unflavored gelatin in my green smoothies everyday for the past 2 weeks. The results have been great. I feel my hair has grown and it has much more sheen and silkiness. My nails have grown significantly longer and have been the strongest they have ever been. My skin has much more elasticity and seems to be much smoother. Even when I don't get enough sleep, the 'lines' under my eyes seem much less defined! HIGHLY recommended for people looking to improve their hair, skin and nails! Can't beat the price either! Thanks iherb!

My energy is greatly raised after taking 2 capsules in the morning. It even helped pains and cramps around menustration. This is a great, trusted company in regards to bee products, and I have been a loyal customer for years! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for people who enjoy the amazing benefits of bee products.

vegans tend to lack l-lysine in their diets (along with cats) so i wanted to get a good supplement. this seems to do the trick!! the taste is pretty wicked though, but still awesome product for the price!

I take this in addition to an enzyme when I eat meat or any foods that are relatively more difficult to digest. This really helps bloating and prevents gas...and ladies, I've read that fennel naturally enhances breasts...if this is true, I may have noticed (or it may all be in my head). Either way, I highly recommend this product.
My favorite vitamin D! Can't beat the price, and the value is great. High potency, I feel so much more energetic and upbeat (just like how you feel when your under beautiful rays of sunshine!) Take these along with high quality omega 3s, probiotics, vitamin c, and zinc and you'll never get sick!

I can't tell how much of an effect this is having on me, but it seemed to boost my immune system, and probably helps with any candida issues.

These seem to be helping with digestion, but it doesn't seem to help gas that much...I used one bottle already and I started my second one, so maybe its been my body adjusting. Word of Advice: Do NOT chew these little tablets. They taste HORRIBLE! They are small and crunchy and taste like cat food...ugh I almost threw up from the taste. But for enzymes, these are a great price and seem to be helping. Will probably purchase again!

I bought this because it was for a great price. I mix it with the Collagen powder I bought because it is absorbed better with Vitamin C. I definitely notice the difference in my skin's moisture! The taste is fine too. It tastes like dull cherries. Not too exciting, but it isn't bad nonetheless. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good natural Vitamin C powder.

This zinc seems to be the most absorbable out of all the ones I have ever taken. I think because its OPTI zinc. I take it for skin health mainly, as I am prone to acne, but also for my immune system. I usually never get sick, but this really seemed to protect me from any colds going around, especially being a college student where there are loads of sick kids around campus during this time of year. I would highly recommend this to ANYONE who takes zinc, or would like to take zinc. This seems to be most absorbable and beneficial to the body. I take either one or two capsules a day, depending on how I am feeling. This is a trustworthy brand, and you won't be disappointed!
