superior liver detox

Posted by Reviewer3303538 on Oct 01, 2009 | Verified Purchase

This is an unusual liver supplement in that it is targeted very specifically for Phase 2 detoxification, which is where I (and most people) need support. I was scheduled for gallbladder surgery, and having all kinds of digestive distress, but after a month of taking 4 caplets of this a day (they're kind of big and hard, but not too bad) and some other helpful things (such as continuing w/ acupuncture and Chinese herbs), I feel much better and have cancelled surgery. Heal your liver, heal the body!

my new fave for liver support

Posted by Reviewer3303538 on Dec 04, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I used to buy a different product for liver support, but I feel that capsules make for better absorption (always buy products with veggie caps, do not accept nasty gelatin capsules from any company!). This product has a good spectrum of fine liver support herbs and nutraceuticals, the two key ingredients being more absorbable Silymarin (the queen of liver herbs; actually helps regenerate liver cells) and Picrorizha Kurroa, the "hangover" herb that doesn't need to be just for alcohol detox; even those of us who don't drink much can benefit from its highly protective, liver-metabolism-aiding properties. I take two a day, one in morning and one at night, and when I support my liver this way, I have less GI distress and less sluggishness in general.

excellent antioxidant

Posted by Reviewer3303538 on Jan 10, 2010 | Verified Purchase

How do I know this stuff is working? Vanity. My complexion and general appearance are noticeably better and more people exclaim how young and great I look. I'm sure it's working on other levels, but I love the inner glow this free-radical fighter gives me! I take two a day, one with breakfast and one after dinner.

hard to say

Posted by Reviewer3303538 on Apr 15, 2009 | Verified Purchase

I can't really tell how/if these are working, even though I know I need lots of extra liver support. I don't care for the larger capsules. I think the same company makes another liver formula with Bupleurum in it that has much smaller capsules, and also Dong Quai, whose female-supportive effects I like. So I think I'll try to find that again...

Terrible, thick, icky mess!

Posted by Reviewer3303538 on May 22, 2014 | Verified Purchase

I wish I'd ignored the overwhelming positive reviews for this product, and I'm writing because my experience was so unusually bad. So much for my Raw Meal - make that a Raw Deal. Suffice to say that even with a large blender bottle and plenty of liquid (almond milk and water), the resulting "shake" is an unctuous, too-thick, gloppy gray mess that I had to try to choke down. Even if the taste were good (this is far from a non-dairy vanilla "milkshake" experience), the consistency would still be its biggest problem. The expression "Gag me with a spoon!" kept popping into my mind as I attempted my last swallow. A whole canister wasted - I'm going to try to make snack bars or protein balls out of the remaining powder. I can't imagine why other people like this product, other than the nutritive value. It is simply an awful meal replacement shake if you're looking for pleasant taste and consistency. By the way, I haven't reviewed anything on iHerb in quite a while, since I've been unimpressed with some people's attempts to get us to click on their links, etc. This reviewing feature on the site should be for honest feedback only, where we help each other out as consumers. Thanks to those of you who respect this.

great liver support and cognition booster

Posted by Reviewer3303538 on Apr 15, 2009 | Verified Purchase

I'm taking ALA (2 a day)to support my liver and act as a general antioxidant, as well as to help my mind work better (I'm 35, with chronic fatigue and regular "brain fog"). I've definitely noticed better cognition and a sense of improved well-being after only a couple weeks of taking it. Also, the potency, price, and Vcaps from Now Foods just can't be beat!

best DIM for right price

Posted by Reviewer3303538 on Oct 01, 2009 | Verified Purchase

I have been diagnosed with extreme estrogen dominance, though I am 36 and not menopausal. My naturopath prescribed DIM for lowering estrogen levels. If you're going to use DIM, use this one-- DIM-PLUS. I have done one month of 4 capsules a day, but my last cycle was still difficult. At this point I believe I'll start intensive progesterone supplementation as well as the DIM. No matter what, it's good to have the "bad estrogen" reduced... there is too much of it in our bodies and environment!

good for thyroid

Posted by Reviewer3303538 on Oct 13, 2009 | Verified Purchase

my doctor told me that this helps with the conversion of T4 to T3. I take one a day in my chronic fatigue protocol and will continue to take it because of other adaptogenic benefits.

a revelation

Posted by Reviewer3303538 on Dec 04, 2013 | Verified Purchase

Seriously, have you tried these? Don't order too many please, because we'd like a regular supply! It's beautiful organic dark chocolate flecked with buttery toffee bits and toasted coconut. The flavor combo and crunch make for a perfect chocolate experience.
