Improved GI, Better Fitness performance and Excellent Immune Modulator!
This product really IS amazing. I had some GI problems after taking antibiotics and other unpleasant experiences and remembered, that a friend of mine told me she used it for similar problems and it helped her a lot. All of the Colostrum product sold here were only in capsules form and ridiculously more expensive. I am glad iHerb offers this great product for such a "bargain" price and ships it Internationally! So, I bought this one and started to use at dosages, that would equate to at least 12-16 capsules a day and I have to say, that I started to feel some very positive effects after several days. It's too long of a story to explain all, but I STRONGLY RECOMMEND this colostrum, especially for prevention! It's well known, that colostrum is one of the top immune modulators and THAT is, what you want to put into your body! Something, that REGULATES your immune system and doesn't just BOOST it (like ehinacea, astragalus, cat's claw and so on). After taking it regularly for about 2 years now, we haven't experienced any colds and viruses at all (Once I had some minor symptoms, but they were gone within a day!). This one definitely goes into my Top 5 list of best supplements I've purchased EVER. Sports nutrition, immune food, great taste (I like it mixed with fruit juice), big container last pretty long and affordable price. This one has it all and should be in your Shopping cart as well :)
Good results for balancing the immune system.

I had good result using reishi products (this one and the Nature's Answer one) for MODULATING my immune system and curing a allergy condition, which was as a result of imbalanced immune system. One awesome thing about the medicinal mushrooms is, that they act as immune modulators, NOT booster(like ehinacea, cat's claw and so on), which can be harmful if you have autoimmune condition (as are most allergies). And the reishi in particular proved to be very beneficial in my case.
Even though i live in th country famous for it's amazing roses i can't find a rose water that comes anywhere near the great, refreshing feeling this one leaves... The fact it doesn't have alcohol in it makes it not irritating the eye if it end up on the eyebal. Very good!
Probably the best value/price product, available on iHerb!

Among all the Reishi products from other brands (I have tried Nature's Way, Paradise Herbs and Mushroom Science) I thing this one has the best balance of Value AND Price. Since I take it my eczema disappeared and my skin (on the hands) much softer. I also feel overall better(no wonder they call it "divine mushroom")! Some of my friends say they had success on improving asthma condition. Well, for info about it look around the web and decide for yourself. But if you decide to buy Reishi, start with this brand, I thing you will be very satisfied with it! P.S. One this, than I've noticed is that the color of the product in the capsules here, on Nature's Answer product is darker, than let's say Nature's Way. And I experience faster results with this one. I guess darker the color, the better.
Helped me a lot with eczema and auto immune condition

The Reishi medicinal mushroom helped me SO MUCH dring the last months, that I continue taking it even after there are no symptoms of my previous [health] complains. This one, as well as "Cordyceps" were recommended to me by doctor implementing medicinal mushrooms in his practice. Well, I am glad to say, that my eczema (which was present for more, than 2 years) disappeared and I witness big improvement in my kidney problem. Overall I am extremely pleased with this mushroom and will continue using it for quite a long time ahead. This is my first time purchasing this brand (before I bought either "Nature's Answer" or the "Nature's Way" products and although they were awesome and helpful, I put high hopes on this one, because Aloha Medicinals makes arguably the best medicinal mushroom products (including formulas) available today.
One Amazing Medicinal Mushroom!

In Brazil, China, Taiwan, and Korea, Agaricus blazei is believed to stimulate the immune system, fight cancer, reduce blood cholesterol levels, cure digestive and circulatory disorders, prevent peptic ulcer and osteoporosis, improve the quality of life of diabetics, and fight emotional and physical stress. All of these sound way too good to be true and I definitely can't confirm on all of those claims, but since 2008, when the Agaricus was "introduced" to me by a friend holistic practitioner, that's when I was opened up about the "magic" of the medicinal mushrooms. Cordyceps,Reishi, Coriolus, Shiitake and Maitake among them. Since then, they really helped me get through health struggles much easier. For me (and also according to respected practitioner, who scpecialized himself from regular doctor, to one, that uses almost exclusively medicinal mushrooms for his patients), they are probably the MOST potent "medicine" found in nature in its RAW form. This one, Agaricus is definitely one of my favourite ones and I even like it's taste (I chew the capsule sometimes). Don't hesitate to try this, it's "fresh" in the iHerb directory and is priced very reasonably. If you are interested in the whole medicinal mushroom treatment, instead of consulting only with Google, you might want also to consult doctors, who used them for *Years* in their practice and have experience. If you wish, you could contact me to give you some suggestions and contact info about such people.
Calcium, the way it should be done.
After trying this form of calcium i think i won't come back to tablet/cap form ever again. The taste is just sublime. I believe it's better absorbed by the body as well. The price is great too. Definately the preferred type of calcium supplementation . I actually look forward to drinking a little bit of it every day :)
Bad taste (no vanilla) and too alcoholc - Worthless!

I've tried putting it into my cereal and baked good and it not only did NOT make them have vanilla flavour, but also spoiled them! It had too strong alcoholic taste and some "flavour" that I am not sure what it is, but it's NOT good. Waste of money.
Very natural, pleasant taste and smell. Enjoys as is and/or fortify a meal of your preference.

Since billberry/blueberry is one of my favorite food (I've mentioned this numerous times) I just couldn't resist to buy it and try it out. With yogurt / oatmeal / cereal th maybe a little bit of stevia some balanced sweetness, it makes for an EXCELLENT snack. It will also probably be great as addition to fruit-based shake, but I haven't tried this and I can't confirm it. With such products I always try to feel ITS flavor and not mix it with anything else. For me, it gives me more enjoyment when I can taste different favors BY THEMSELVES, not mixed up and just vaguely recognizable. When you have to "fortify" a snack - sure why not, but I encourage you to also taste it by itself and even "out of the bottle" :) Thanks for the attention!
Good taste, great absorbtion

Tried this type of pollen .ne i an pretty satisfied with the quality and the taste. The statement that it is better absorbed (probably because of the papain's protein breaking abilities) seems nice too (since sometimes the pollen is not absorbed at its best). The fresh granules option is probably the best variant but this one is close second!
