I can't say enough about taking turmeric for inflammation. I was having a LOT of pain due to degenerative arthritis, and turned to turmeric rather than NSAIDs. It wasn't a quick fix but after a couple of months, it really kicked in. I was really getting pretty debilitated from severe lower back pain and shooting nerve pain down my legs. As a professional pet sitter and dog walker, it was wreaking havoc in my life. I still have pain when I turn over in bed at night, or when I move heavy items, but overall I'm good! I chose Organic India because of its high quality and because it's organic. You can find cheaper turmeric but this is important enough to me to spend more. Plus ordering from iHerb lowers the cost considerably.
I gave this 2 stars because my doctor told me I need a MUCH higher dose than is recommended on this bottle. If I were to take as much as she (dr.) says I need, I would be absurdly expensive! There is a prescription you can get, and fill it with Pam Labs. It is compounded there so that you can take it in the l-methylfolate form, which is what enables it to cross the blood brain barrier. I take it as a mood stabilizer.
I love this lotion!!!!

Seriously, this lotion is really really good. And the container it comes in is HUGE and lasts me a long time. I'm 60 years old and have been trying lotions and this is superior to all I've ever tried.
Seems to be good.
I chose this multi because of what I read about it, which of course I can't remember but I trust my choice at the time. :) One thing I LOVE about it that it is a slick oval and slides right down. Big plus!
I've been using this product for over a year, and I highly recommend it. I am 61 yrs old and the skin on my face has gotten dry. This cream has helped to manage that. It's not greasy -- no clogging of pores-- and absorbs well. Sometimes it feels a little sticky at first but this soon goes away.
I've been using Giovanni shampoo and conditioner for a couple of yrs, and like it a lot for all the reasons one likes a good shampoo and conditioner. What I REALLY like about this is the tea tree. It feels good and smells good -- kind of cooling and invigorating.
Does the trick for me!
I take one every morning to help prevent genital herpes outbreaks and it has really helped. When I do have an outbreak I triple the dose and it helps to minimize it.
This and fish oil have brought my cholesterol and triglicerides levels back to normal. I think it's very important to get the red yeast rice WITH CoQ10. Red yeast rice and the prescriptive statins lower the body's CoQ10, which is present and needed in all cells.
Best brand in my book!
You can get cheap fish oil but quality makes a big difference. I use fish oil for cholesterol and it works magnificently. Been using this brand for years. I also take it to help with bipolar disorder.
I use this in a soaking bath and it sends me straight to heaven.
