I bought some Paradise Beta Glucan from another supplier and am so glad I have found it at a much better price here on Iherb. When I re-order will definitely be from Iherb (my usual supplier of great stuff, in any event). Paradise Beta Glucan is NOT from Yeast. Unlike 95% of all the Beta Glucan immune stimulants you will find on Iherb. The evidence is suggestive that mushroom derived Beta Glucans are more potent than yeast derived and elsewhere, for instance, Maiitake derived Beta Glucan cost a huge amount for a very small amount of active Beta Glucans. By contrast this Paradise version gives a full 125mg of Beta Glucans per capsule, all extracted from those amazing Chinese type immune mushrooms. What is more, with Paradise, there is always the confidence of ultra purity, potency and science. A great product, that, combined with a AHCC, kills many viruses dead in their tracks (or rather stimulates the immune system to do it for you!)

I suffer from really bad PMS. I mean - REALLY bad, as well as prone to generally too much stress and even anxiety. Taking two of these a days does absolute wonders for me. In China, this formula is known as "Serene and Happy Wanderer" - and it is true to its word. With these pills - taking two a day for most of the time - I really am more serene and happy. And without them - well, least said the better! Great stuff and usual high quality from Planetary herbs

Sorry to be a lone voice of disent. I do realise that everyone buys this product for its progesterone action - and I have no reason to doubt it on this. But has no one noticed that it stinks! It smells very strongly for several hours after use (including hands if don't wash immediately) or artificial fragrance - despite suggesting on its ingredients list that it uses mostly natural products. Again, I know it can be frustrating reading negative reviews that are about minority groups - but actually quite a few people have some degree of chemical sensitivity and look to places like Iherb to purchase natural alternatives. I found the smell on this cream over-powering, unusable, unnatural and certainly not health-full. Beware if you have any dislike of artirficial fragrance. What a pity, as I am sure NOW is a reliable brand in other ways and clearly good value for money.

Humans aren't meant to eat single extracts from vitamin E. In nature, vitamin E means a full range of all four types of tocopherols and all four types of tocotrienols. Not only is this what the body recognizes, but tocotrienols (never included in standard vitamin E pills or multi vitamins) are up to 100 x more powerful as antioxidants than tocopherols. Moreover, delta tocopherol (usually listed as vitamin E in supplements) is the lease desirable form, compared to gamma tocopherol. This MRM prodcut is outstanding value. Just do a search on Iherb for tocotrienols. On balance, 60 capsules with each containing 25 mg of tocotrienols, would cost a lot more than this pot os softgels which also includes the full spectrum, in large amounts, of all the tocopheros. Boost your immune system. Protect against free radicals. And more. For $9.98 this is the best value vitamin E complex (and it is the FULL FULL FULL complex) on the market.

This single high quality product replaces several that I have been taking for chemical and heavy metal detox. Healthforce are very high quality and using many active ingredients together - charcoal, zeolite, clay - combined with lots of good gut stuff - e.g marshmallow - means I have a handy source of detox products. Especially useful when traveling, feeling ill, a bit over burdened with toxins and rubbish. My BM are better and my whole gut feels healthier. I also highly recommend their Zeolite powder.

For those suffering for PCOS I cannot recommend this form of inositol too highly. Several studies show that it has - at a daily dosage of 600mg - a profound effect on glucose metabolism and testosterone levels. Both of these are dysregulated in Poly Cystic Ovary syndrome. Of those clients I have tried on this harmless, low side effect supplement, about 70% have benefited. Of those, about half foudn this to be a complete cure of the syndrome. It greatly assisted in stabilizing the glucose response curve. And reduced serum testosterone levels by about 50 - 70%. These results are supported by other practitioners and some small studies. Far better to try than anti-androgens (with all the associated problems). And infinitely better than the useless contraceptive pill. By reducing testosterone many clients find cysts are reduced, for some full menstrual cycles return, and for most, many of the nasty mood swings and horrible PMS are gone. Recommended very highly indeed.

An oustanding combination of herbs and neutraceuticals to 1) improve stress response over the long term (eg eleuthro and rhodiola) and also 2) and immediate and powerful calming effect (eg zizyphus and magnolia). Strong and effective. Will certainly soothe an agitated CNS (central nervous system), act like natural valium (via GABA receptors) and be restorative to the stress response (the HPA axis and adrenal glands. may be too strong for some. And be careful you don't come off it suddenly if you've been on it for months - it is powerful enough that it would need a gentle tapering off. Recommended.

I have been using Resveratrol for several years: it has many excellent properties but chiefly I am using them because of all the various beneficial flavenoids out there, this one is superbly neuro-protective: reducing neurological inflammation and acting as a reasonable preventative against so many disorders including dementia. This is great value for money at $7.80 for 60 caps of 100mg PLUS it has some extra goodies in too - grape seed extract and red wine extract. I use it liberally, and at this price I can afford to.

An absolute essential for myself, my family and my patients. Brilliant at all "overwhelmed" states, including bereavement, stress, sleeplessness etc. Also great for fear, anxiety, panic attacks. Highly, highly effective. With no side effects or withdrawal symptoms I recommend this 100 times for every time I recommend prescription anti-anxiety medicines. Grounding, calming, nurturing. Not just sedating - it also has an energetic quality (that is the point of chinese herbal medicine) that is soothing and nourishing to the heart. Brilliant and effective product.

Absolutely the best value Hyaluronic formula. When you take just two or three tablets a day you get all you need - in terms of osteoarthritis and joint health. This stuff is amazing. Loads of the right type of collagen. Lots of bio-available hayaluronic acid. A good dose of MSM - builds joints/repairs them. Gucosamine in a high dose . And finally Chondroitin which is probably better than glucosamine. This is the best joint formula I have found. Been using it for years and with lots of patients. I do always add in Celadrin and in there is current infammation - there usually is - then also Zyflammend from New Chapter is invaluable. Good luck - this is the best value all-rounder out there.
