Time and Time again Iherb has stepped up to the challenge of saving me money. I love trying new supplements but hate paying retail prices to get them. With an average of 30%, no sales tax, an incredible rewards program, free shipping and the straight cash coupons emailed to me, I just had to share the wealth.
Yep, you heard it. Study after Study show that curcumin has a positive benefit for hair loss sufferers. It has many health benefits but for the follicle challenged it is wonderful. For hair loss it is suggested to take Super Bio-Curcumin in combination with a Resveratrol supplement such as Optimized Resveratrol from Life Extension, also available on iHerb. New data indicates it can be taken with Garlic Extract to achieve the same results as taking with Resveratrol. I take both and prefer Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract. Taking all 3 supplements gets pricey, so buying on iherb without a shipping fee saves me over 37%.
I have read for years about the positive effects Emu Oil has for the skin. It has been used around the world for centuries to cure all types of skin conditions. Recently, studies have shown in increase in hair growth in the front hairline of men who apply topical emu oil to their scalps daily. There is no proof that it works but that didn't stop me. I tried Emu Gold and like how it keeps my scalp from drying out and it has done wonders on my face. This brand is particularly cost effective for me.
Life Extension Super Zeaxanthin is part of my hairloss regiment. I began using it after a study was published stating " "Triarco”, a Bio-Tech company based in New Jersey, released some very intriguing results of a pilot study for their patented prostate product Alphastat®, which inhibits 5-alpha reductase. The three-month study on male patients ages 55-68 reported a 40% decrease in blood levels of DHT, which has some obvious implications for treating hair loss." This make up of this drug can be reproduced using natural ingredients and of course, iHerb had them all. So of course, I tried it. I take: 1 Life Extension Super Zeaxanthin w/Lutein 1 Astavita Astanxanthin-V 1 Optizinc 2 Ultra Natural Prostate Formula This regiment provides more of what the chemical version of the drug delivers into the system and it is all natural. Oh, and ALLOT cheaper.

I had heard so much about Coconut Oil that I wanted to give it a try. First I heard that rubbing a little onto the scalp was great for hair loss and dandruff. It smelled amazing and seemed more like a luxury spa treatment than a hair loss trick. But over the last few years, the benefits of consuming coconut oil was making the news. The fact that it has a high heat tolerance and does not break down as easy as other oils was the main reason I wanted to cook with it. The medium chain triglycerides are the secret to the health benefits but I didn't like the taste of cooking my food in it. Jarrow Formulas was so delicious that I just eat it right out of the jar. Every morning I gulp down 1 tbsp of pure coconut oil and that's all I need. Again, this stuff expensive so buying it from iHerb makes all the sense in the world. I love it!!
