Hayfever relief

Posted by iHerb Customer on Sep 23, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Having suffered bad hayfever the last couple of days, I had tried vitamin C with only limited benefit. I recalled reading that methionine may help, so I had a cap on an empty stomach at night and started to get relief within 10 minutes. I also slept better than I usually do. This is a well-tolerated product for me and is free of magnesium stearate. Methionine is an essential amino acid (your body cannot synthesise it) that is required for the methylation cycle; hormones such as serotonin, melatonin and dopamine are produced as a result of this cycle. The B vitamins are also essential for methylation, however in my case, supplemental methionine seems very beneficial and I have been taking a multi-vitamin (plus extra methylcobalamin B12 occassionally) for years. As with most things, moderation is key. Excess methionine, particularly in the absence of B vitamins can lead to elevated homocysteine, but methionine deficiency can also compromise the methylation cycle, lead to fatty liver disease plus a range of other health issues. Indeed methionine deficiency can also lead to higher homocysteine; here's a quote from Kilmer McCully, one of the pioneers of homocysteine research: 'Methionine deficiency elevates blood homocysteine concentrations because of decreased synthesis of adenosyl methionine and dysregulation of sulfur amino acid metabolism'.

Useful product

Apparently bilberry offers a lot of the benefits of blueberries but has some unique differences. Effects noticed after a couple of weeks of consistent use (1 to 2 capsules per day): increased resistance to colds, better adaptation to low-light conditions, almost freakish night vision, increased urination (seems to act as a diuretic). I suspect that the benefits for vision may be less apparent for those deficient in vitamin A or with sight disorders. The product also seems to have some benefit for skin and broken capillaries, though this is rather subjective at this stage of use and maybe wishful thinking on my part.

Thanks for your feedback!

B2, Riboflavin

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 06, 2010 | Verified Purchase

Excellent well priced product. I don't really have vision poblems but find my eyes are more comfortable when using a computer monitor for long periods of time and are less susceptible to glare. It also seems to enhance mental alertness. I've been taking this a few times a week with my morning multivitamin (I don't think it's a good idea taking high dose 'B' vitamins in isolation). Apparently this nutrient can also help lower homocysteine levels - particularly for those with the 'homozygous polymorphism' who are least able to metabolise folic acid.

Good value

Good value pure vitamin E with no fillers. I would like it however if the company indicated the amount of tocopherols (other than alpha) in the product.

Magnesium citrate

Posted by iHerb Customer on Apr 23, 2008 | Verified Purchase

Good form of magnesium, effective and well tolerated. I take 2 to 3 capsules at night which helps with relaxation and improves sleep. Highly recommended if you suffer from cramps.

Chrome-vanadium

Great product for stabilising blood sugar and reducing any cravings for sweets. Strongly recommend for low blood sugar.

Brain stimulant

Posted by iHerb Customer on Sep 06, 2009 | Verified Purchase

Enhanced concentration and focus from taking one of these capsules. Apparently it may also reduce age spots on the skin when used consistently.

Thanks for your feedback!

NAC

Quite potent (and pungent) form of sulphur. Relieves bronchial congestion & is apparently a liver tonic (however bowel movements may remind you of Rotorua!)

Thanks for your feedback!

Zinc

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

Well priced and tolerated product. I find taking at night, in addition to magnesium citrate improves sleep. Zinc is also vital for immunity. I believe a lot of people are deficient due to a lack of zinc in the diet plus consumption of high copper foods such as nuts and chocolate and copper plumbing (copper is a zinc antagonist).

Thanks for your feedback!

Good digestive aid

Posted by iHerb Customer on Feb 13, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Product works well. In my case I've found that if I have a heavy meal late at night with one of these, what would be my normal digestive discomfort is greatly reduced. It also seems to have a slight laxative effect.

Thanks for your feedback!
