I read a book on how this combination will help balance our omega oils and clear up acne. I used it for a full month and after about 2 weeks my skin started to clear; by the end of the month I could eat about anything and not break out. I did find it for about $3.00 less someplace else. If you mix it with Kefir it makes it absorb into your system better. I buy the already made kefir in the grocery stores health food section for 3.50 a bottle. The best part is now I don't spend money on skin products; just kefir and total EFA! FYI; I used 1 T. per day, but I'm small. Perhaps someone larger might need more, but 1 -2T is what the book said to use. It also had made my fingernails grow like mad!!! Nice little exra :)
Unhealthy synthetic vitamins

These vitamins might have a lot of stuff in them but they are mainly synthetic. Ergocalciferol is Vitamin D-2 which blocks D-3 (cholecalciferol) the healthy type of vitamin D. These may make you feel energized at first, but over time, they will deplete your body from all the synthetic ingredients. That would explain the reason for their low price; you get what you pay for.......
This is the 2nd time buying this, I hate taking pills so this works out great. My dog and I both take it. I give her 1 serving a day; she's 50#. And I take 3-4 a day, sometimes more. I also use on my face as a face mask, works well mixed with a tiny amt. of water; I dump a little chlorella into the palm of my hand, then with the water turned OFF I tap the underside of the faucet to get a drop out, only takes 1 or 2 drops. Start rubbing into your face and add water as needed as it dries really fast!
I thought this was really bad, I am used to Spectrum, which i-herb does NOT carry. This is very hard, smells and tastes bad, almost like old coconuts. Spectums has a soft sweet smell and taste, plus it isn't nearly as hard. Wish i-herb would carry it. Guess I'll go back to getting it at my local health food store at the high price, at least I know I'm getting what I like. Plus I use it sparingly so it lasts me about 4 months.

My face broke out something awful so I think I might be allergic to something in this product; my skin looks the worst it's ever looked. Now I have to spend 30.00 to get a box of total body cleanse from the local health food store as thats the only things that gets my skin looking good in a short amount of time. Hope I can get my money back from this company........
Somewhat drying; bar is very large, seems to last quite awhile which is nice. the walnut and salt soap by the same company are also drying as I bought all 3 at the same time, Think I will look for something less drying next time. My husband noticed it too, so it wasn't just me.
Love this stuff, wow, what a buzz I got after taking it. Think I will cut back to half a dose, will last longer too!!! Taste isn't too bad as I found the best beverage to mix it with is Grapefruit juice. Since greens aren't sweet, mixing it with sweet juice seems to clash, whereas grapefruit is tart so it seems to taste better with it. The texture is nice, mixes well without clumping. You do need to stir it well, but once mixed it is fine. Don't forget to store it in the freezer to keep it fresh.
Husband loves it!!!

My husband won't try anything new; so when he ran out of his old gel I stuck this in his bathroom without asking. A month and a half later he asked me to get his some more. Said it worked great and he really liked the smell. Wish they had a travel size for his shaving kit.
Somewhat tough compared to the angel hair, maybe if they could make them not quite so thick, but like the ingredients a lot. I just mixed them half and half with my angel hair pasta.
