Excellent product, not finely grinded

I am happy with this product. For now, I Prefer to buy Xylitol made from Birch trees instead of corncobs (unless country of origin and non GMO stated) even though it is probably more sustainable to buy made from corncobs. I like that it is made in USA (no dodgy origin). The only negative point (hence the 3 stars) is that it is not very fine (1-2 mm) but given the savings I make (even with the postage fees to Australia, it is 1/2 price from local shops), I will keep ordering it. Thumbs up for I-Herb fast and efficient service.
Makes my brain even more foggy!
Had great hopes with this new type of magnesium that cross the brain barrier as I feel my brain is in a fog and my memory is not very good. I have tried it twice but it doesn't work for me. Memory gets even worse and I feel even more foggy!. Might work for others though. Love iHerb, great prices, excellent service, great shipping rates.
Works perfectly for S. Dermititis
Great product. Cheap, clean ingredients from what I can see and works wonder for my Seborrheic dermititis. Way better than Nizoral shampoo for me. Like the idea of clay as ingredient to absorb excess oil. I haven't read about any serious issues with long term use of salicylic acid so far (except rare allergic reaction or irritation)so will continue to use it. Thumbs up to iHerb's great service, prices, shipping rates.
Love this product, very happy that it is back at iHerb. Had a lot of tooth decay depite clean diet. Upgraded dental hygiene with tongue scraping, teeth cleaning at dentist x 2 a year instead of x 1 and this probiotic (was already flossing x 1 day + brushing x 2 day). No more tooth decay! also no more bleeding gums and improved breath. Had occasionnally a mild case of tonsil stones, virtuallly disappeared! HIGHLY RECOMMEND A TRY (I only take it at night after brushing to make it last longer). My dentist was quite interested when i mentionned this probiotic: oral probiotics not sold yet in Australia but a lot of research is apparently going into oral probiotics. Love iHerb for great service, prices, shipping rates.
Good product, replaceable heads unavailable for international customers

This is a very good product, not miraculous. The brush is very gentle so you think it is not going to clean well but it actually does. It also goes where a normal brush can't reach. I seem to get the same result with my normal toothbrush but end up with irritated gums from harsh brushing. There is still a build up of plaque but it has decreased. I just don't know if it is because I also use Advanced oral hygiene (Life Extension) and floss with Dr Tung's smart floss + use Dr Tung's tongue cleaner. The BIG downside of this product is that I live in Sydney and that I-Herb doesn't sell the replaceable heads anymore. I am having a hard time finding them anywhere (Dr Tung's website doesn't seem to ship internationally) and the only site I found selling them charges a whopping, unacceptable $34 shipping fee for 4 replaceable heads at $28!. I fear I am now stuck with an unusable good product. Otherwise, thumbs up for I-herb fast and efficient service.
Near perfect but read my update

11.2012: Great product. Ingredients seem clean. Easily applied, fast absorption. No white face/body. I use it for the face too. Like the smell, reminds me of the glue I used as a child (ok maybe not great for everyone?). I didn't give 5 stars because it is not waterproof. Reasonnably priced. Love iHerb, great service, prices; shipping rates. Update 12.01.14: Not so fantastic anymore, as previous user said, zinc formulation has changed and it is more difficult to apply with small white residue and hands that ends up white. Please go back to former formulation
Really like the idea of having the clay mask already pre-made. Paste is quite thin but seems to do the work. Be careful of shaking the tube (so that there are no air bubbles near the beginning of the tube) to get the product out as it tends to splash everywhere otherwise. Clean ingredients, very affordable. No harmful added ingredients. Would like to see a BPA free tube.Thanks to iHerb for a great service.

IMO, probiotics should be part of everyone's daily regimen. Love that it is vegetable based, fermented and complete with prebiotics, probiotics and digestive enzymes. Also, love that it is stable at room temperature (will put it in the fridge during hot summer days though). Didn't give 5 stars as it is inconvenient to take (wait 45mn before breakfast and 1h1/2 after dinner). I end up forgetting the evening one which is maybe why I haven't felt any drastic changes. Didn't have digestive issues to start with. Less colds but I eat cleanly and take vit D. Used to suffer for recurrent thrush, now gone (could be low carb diet+ stopped the pill)Thumnbs up for excellent prices, service, shipping rates at iHerb.
Not great for me
Took it as recommended by my doctor for enhancing memory but didn't work for me. Made me more foggy. Solgar is a good brand so it might work well for others, just not for me. Love iHerb's great dervice, prices and shipping rates.
Potentially good ingredients. I have dark circles and it didn't improve them despite regular use. Won't buy again. Love iHerb.
