Really helped me increase Vitamin D3 levels
Posted by Reviewer2491592 on Dec 16, 2008 | Verified Purchase
I have to take a proton pump inhibitor (Prevacid) for frequent acid reflux. That class of drugs makes it more difficult to assimilate certain vitamins and minerals because they lower stomach acid. I was previously taking a Vitamin D3 from another company (not sold by Iherb). My vitamin D3 level was 32 which is low. Now I take 2 of these soft gels a day from Carlson and my Vitamin D level is 49 which is pretty good. Other people might do fine with just one soft gel a day. All prescription Vitamin D is Vitamin D2 which is the synthetic form and should be avoided. It does not work nearly as well as natural Vitamin D3 and can actually block the real Vitamin D3 from working properly.
Guarana helps my migraines

This Gaurana has about 200 mg caffeine in each tablet. They are easy to half with a pill splitter. I started taking either a half tablet or whole tablet daily to help prevent migraines a couple of months ago. My migraines are less frequent since taking Guarana and they don't last as long. Other caffeine pills make me jittery and this does not. Excedrin products have caffeine in them but they also have aspirin and/or acetaminophen which I'd rather not take unless absolutely necessary. I have also been taking the herb Feverfew daily for years and that helps as well.
Not crazy about the fragrance

I personally think this herbal scent would be more appropriate for a man. It's a fairly strong scent and one that I'm not crazy about. I may try the Jasmine scent though.
