I feel this is important for women to take, and men too.

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 11, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I am not in menopause, but want to take it as prevention and health, and plan to continue taking once I get into menopause as well and the rest of my life. I take one in the morning and one at night. I also make sure I take enough omega 3 oils, calcium and vitamin D(Need to take blood test to test for what is appropriate level for yourself)-much higher than RDA recommended, not enough to depend on the sun, take a supplement, for strong bones and prevention of breast cancer. Usana supplements have higher levels of vitamin D added and good multiple vitamin set with vitamin D as well. In total, my vitamin D is about 4000 IU daily. Research shows a daily oral intake between 1,000 to 4,000 IU of vitamin D (depending upon your baseline vitamin D blood levels) is ideal. Vitamin D toxicity does not occur until blood levels reach 150 ng/ml or more; which would generally take an oral dose of 50,000 IU per day! Vitamin D status can be assessed by a blood test. Be careful about the lab’s reference ranges, because sometimes they will compare you to the "normal population," which is DEFICIENT...you don't want to be “normal” (or deficient in vitamin D). Optimal levels of vitamin D3 (25-hdroxyvitamin D) should be in the range of 30 – 50 ng/ml (or 75 – 125 nmol/L). What is fascinating, and critical for you to know is that there are well over 89 medical studies showing that high vitamin D blood levels (which can only be obtained by supplementing with more than 400 IU/day) reduce nearly all cancers, including cancers of the colon, rectum, breast, and prostate (some as much as 50%). Furthermore, vitamin D has been shown to suppress inflammation by reducing cytokines (inflammatory modulating molecules). Thus, taking at least 1,000 of vitamin D or more per day helps protect against inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, chronic muscle pain (fibromyalgia), congestive heart failure, diabetes, stroke, and mutliple sclerosis. God bless you all.

Important to take supplement

Hard to tell.....

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 20, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I was looking for a reasonably priced alpha hydroxy/beta hydroxy acid light lotion that helps with cell renewal for my face, it absorbs very well, makes my skin smooth and soft. I felt some tingling. Don't get it anywhere near your eyes! Even though I felt tingling like it was working on my skin, I didn't really see a difference after using about 2 bottles of it, but then again, I didn't use it every night, sometimes every other night or every few nights apart. It may be because your skin might get used to the alpha hydroxy, I don't remember if I could still feel the tingle, I think it says on the bottle something about that that you should use it for a certain amount of time or else your skin might get used to it and it might not be as effective. I also have maturing skin, it might be better for someone young. I don't think I am going to use it. God bless you all.

Diffiicult to put on

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 07, 2014 | Verified Purchase

This sunscreen is difficult to put on/spread, because it leaves whitish residue here and there, you have to rub in more in those areas. And it pills, which is frustrating as well. In my order, I ordered this and 2 other sunscreens to try them and see which ones I would like. I wish this one worked out because it is Spf 50 and also has zinc oxide. But I like the other 2 natural sunscreens a lot, Tate's Spf 30(titanium dioxide) is very easy to apply/spreads easily with no whitish residue moisturizing and Coola's Spf 30 tinted BB Face Cream(titanium dioxide, zinc oxide) is also very easy to apply and silky smooth moisturizing, both from iherb. God bless you all.

Very Good.

This face wash lathers well yet is not drying. It removes all makeup, when I want to also remove eye makeup, I rub it around my eyes and lids, and it all washes off! I love it. It is one of the best face washes I have used, I have tried many including department store brands. Love coconut, so good for your skin. I use all the Everyday Coconut skincare, very very good price and they work! I also use the Everyday bodycare, I got it at Wholefoods, but not the shampoo which is drying. I also use Nubian Heritage Coconut products. God bless you all.

Iodine is important to get 150 mcg

Posted by iHerb Customer on Oct 10, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I take 1 capsule a day for the green food. I get also iodine from my multivitamin/mineral 150 mcg at least. I heard 150 mcg is the recommended amount a day. My gynecologist said that iodine is a metal, so you don't want to take too much. But you need iodine no matter what, or you could get hypothyroidism, where no matter how much you exercise or diet, you gain weight, besides other things. God bless you all.

Very oily.

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 12, 2012 | Verified Purchase

This is like an oil, I did not know that it was going to be an oil. And it doesn't seem to absorb well, but maybe I put too much or maybe a light layer might better absorb. I was looking for more of a cream or lotion sunscreen. However, I have been getting really into virgin coconut oil and this seems like this is really good with good ingredients and organic. I just had to get used to applying oil more often. Coconut oil is so good for you. God bless you all.

I got a pimple or 2.

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 12, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I was using this on my facial skin, and after a couple uses, I got a pimple or 2. I also tried the Now brand and it did the same thing. Aura Cacia has color to it, while the Now brand was almost clear I think. God bless you all.

Tastes good

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 16, 2014 | Verified Purchase

This powder has a little sweet taste to it, it tastes good in water, it mixes easily in cold or room temperature water. I use this with the Liddell HGH spray. I don't know how much it is working in my body, but I think it helps taking it. The scoop that comes inside it is kind of long, so it is hard to put back in the container, I keep it separately outside of the container. God bless you all.

Sticky

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 09, 2013 | Verified Purchase

This is a little easier to spread, should try to warm up between the palms, than other natural sunscreens I have ordered, Badger and All Terrain(which I thought was pretty good, but Jason Mineral is easier to spread, even though still thick), but this Jason Natural sunscreen is sticky. It does have not strong scent(I am sensitive to scents) and doesn't leave a whitish residue. Looks greasy on face, but maybe better for body, maybe won't be as sticky on body? For face, I found Tate's Spf 30(titanium dioxide) and Coola BB tinted face cream spf 30(titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) both on iherb and both are very good, really like them a lot, both are very easy to spread on. God bless you all.
