I knew I had a zinc deficiency from the white spots on my fingernails. I have been using a standard amino acid chelated zinc which I purchased locally in Australia. I thought I was taking care of my deficiency but my symptoms did not improve. I then decided to try this form of zinc & now my symptoms are improving quickly. The greasy skin was gone on day two!, my skin became softer, I no longer felt cold, digestion is better, I no longer feel as hungry, sleep quality is much better, I feel more relaxed, I have more stamina & the white spots have disappeared from my nails. I believe zinc levels in the soil are extremely low (particularly in Australia) as I have always eaten a very healthy diet. I will now be taking this zinc for the rest of my life to prevent deficiency. This is the only 'L-OptiZinc' that I could find, which is better absorbed than the ordinary 'OptiZinc'. Kudos to Now Foods for using top notch ingredients & to iHerb for stocking it! Highly recommended!

Boron is banned for sale in Australia, luckily we can still import it for personal use. This came about when Rex Newnham of Perth discovered a lack of boron will cause arthritis. He then helped many people overcome arthritis by supplementing boron. He took his findings to a pharmaceutical company thinking they would be interested. Instead, the pharmaceutical company fined Mr Newnham & had boron classed as an S4 poison & banned for sale in Australia. Mr Newnham concluded they did not want arthritis cured & moved to England. My joints are continuing to improve with boron, more than any pharmaceutical drug has ever done for me!

An invaluable nutrient, I now wake up feeling refreshed in the morning. I felt worse in the beginning, it took 1-2 weeks for positive results but I will never be without this now.

This has stopped my IBS & improved digestion. My stomach also now rumbles & makes noises when I am hungry or digesting a meal. It has not done that for as long as I can remember. Has also greatly improved my quality of sleep.

This is the best form of selenium for the body to recognize & utilize. I get no noticeable benefit when taking selenomethionine but when I take this, I have a greater feeling of well being. It is hard to find this form of selenium on it's own with nothing else added in the capsule. Please continue to keep this one in stock.

Garlic has a half life of less than 14 days once crushed, after that, components like allicin are no longer active. Freeze drying garlic naturally preserves all these components so that it remains as fresh as the day it was harvested. This is proving to be indispensable for my chronic/hidden infections, sinuses & poor circulation. I will never be without this from now on.

Menatetrenone is the form of K2 the body needs & utilizes best. It has also been trialed & effective for osteoporosis & various cancers. This is an excellent product, I will be reordering.

Great whole sprout supplement, I take this instead of sulforaphane only extracts as you also get important enzymes like myrosinase as well as many other glucosinolates & isothiocyanates. Freeze drying as Eclectic does keeps all these components alive.

Great to see an alternative to soy lecithin. Have noticed an improvement in my health since taking this.

I have B-12 deficiency & reacted badly when I took this. It is because it contains cyanocobalamin, I have now switched to taking methylcobalamin & adenosylcobalamin which are the biologically active forms the body can use immediately. If you really need B-12 I recommend staying away from the cyano form.
