Fantastic stuff - finally a holy grail!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jul 08, 2009 | Verified Purchase

I have very fine, blonde, sun/chlorine bleached hair and have had a real problem finding a leave in conditioner that didn't have silicone or tons of protein. Most I have tried dry my hair out (giovanni, bwc) due to the soy protein content. This stuff is REALLY nice. It contains lots of natural oils but doesn't seem to leave my hair greasy - just soft and shiny. I have tried everything under the sun to treat my dry ends. Everything with cones leaves it flat/greasy, but nothing else seems to give it slip and moisture on the ends. Finally I am just conditioner washing with this as a leave in, and sometimes I use the Nubian Heritage black soap as a shampoo to periodically clarify chlorine etc. as I swim most days. This has a small amount of rice protein at the bottom of the ingredients list but doesn't seem to bother my hair. You get TONS of product for the price and I only need a small amount. I am going to use this as a pre-wash treatment as well due to the oil content. Definitely a total bargain and would recommend it to anybody. In addition - it states that it reduces volume but to be honest that is more from the smoothing it gives - without silicone so no build-up. It did not make my hair flat anyway.

Thanks for your feedback!

good for insomnia and depression

I take a lot of magnesium instead of drugs for depression and sleep. I do balance sometimes with calcium. It is more important to get the Mg/Ca balance right than simply push calcium tablets all the time. Too much calcium leads to psychiatric illnesses, sleep disorders etc. Magnesium will sort this out. These Mg caps seem to be well absorbed.

zinc for acne

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 27, 2009 | Verified Purchase

I don't think these work as well as albion chelated zinc glycinate. Also the label is not clear - it is 60mg zinc orotate - not 60mg elemental zinc. If my calculations are right, each tablet only contains 9mg elemental zinc. I do like this brand for the other minerals, but I wish they would label their products correctly - it is incredibly misleading to customers (similarly for the other minerals - the lithium is only 4.9mg Li, the magnesium 31mg Mg and the Calcium around 50mg Ca per tablet). Obviously the orotate form is more directly used (I think) but still, it would be good if there were proper labelling on all products.

works most of the time

unless you are really sweaty and hot, in which case your clothes start to smell but interestingly not you. Great thing is it doesn't bleach the underarms of t-shirts!

Great face cream

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jan 03, 2010 | Verified Purchase

I'm on my 4th pot of this it is so great. Very intensive yet no greasy residue. I have very sensitive skin prone to breakouts on my chin and I can put this EVERYWHERE on my face and no breakouts. Fantastic as an after-sun as well. A really great find and lasts ages.

Thanks for your feedback!

great for quitting smoking

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 28, 2009 | Verified Purchase

I take it all back! I wrote quite a damning review before of this stuff but recently quit smoking and decided t give it another go. Usually when I get to 24 hours nicotine-free I start to have absolutely awful panic attacks - so bad that I go back to smoking just to survive. I figured that I probably needed something to help with serotonin levels whilst I get off nicotine and the low serotonin was probably why I felt so awful. Well it is working - I've just completed my first 72 hours without nicotine and it hasn't been impossible. No panic attacks and I even survived a party with alcohol without feeling like I was going to go insane without a smoke. So if you want to quit there is a good website out there called whyquit and I highly recommend dosing with the lithium orotate at the same time to raise serotonin levels. In past quit attempts I have felt really 'bipolar' with serious mood swings happening from one moment to the next - basically just horrible. With the lithium it is much easier just to take a deep breath and embrace the cravings when they come without flipping out. I have had some bad insomnia and the lithium isn't doing anything for that but I don't mind as it's making this whole thing possible for me.

Thanks for your feedback!

taken with lithium orotate

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 09, 2009 | Verified Purchase

I used this to address the fatigue caused by lithium orotate. It worked - also good for social anxiety. Basically if you have low levels of norepinephrine and dopamine it will work. Not for low serotonin though.

The. Best. Magnesium. Ever.

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 24, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I have taken a lot of different magnesium supplements over the years. This one beats them all hands down. I recently had a terrible bout of insomnia that nothing seemed to help. I noticed that my prenatal has obscene amounts of calcium and half as much magnesium in the oxide form....duh. I cut back on the prenatal and started taking these at night on their own...bingo....body relaxes and I sleep. No diarrhea. These are the best. They even beat the chelated glycinate form...by miles. If you are magnesium deficient these will cure you. If you can't sleep check your calcium intake and start on these. Of course both need to be in balance. I would say for me a 1:1 overall ratio is best, with calcium taken earlier in the day and magnesium ON ITS OWN at night.

seems to be well absorbed

Posted by iHerb Customer on Sep 02, 2010 | Verified Purchase

in face so well absorbed I started to have a problem with constipation again, something that was a thing of the past taking other types of magnesium. Only thing is you get 100mg per tablet which isn't much if you want to take like 600mg a day.

Thanks for your feedback!

Nice cheap effective Mg

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 01, 2009 | Verified Purchase

Seems to be well absorbed without having to shell out the dosh. Take this in between meals - works much better. I take around 800mg a day along with eating cheese for calcium.
