I have been using Now brand Olive leaf extract for about 8 years. Almost every single day. It works great! It is one of the most important things that I take daily for the relief of my chronic skin condition called psoriasis. I was only taking 2 caps per day for a long time, still seeing and feeling good results like less itchiness, less redness, more smoothness, but still not perfect. So I increased the Olive leaf extract to 4 capsules daily, 2 am, 2 pm, and also doubled up on my other all natural remedies. The combination was amazing. It is important to listen to your body, and if you have any strange reactions to anything, to slow down or stop, until you figure it out. I think the anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties are what works for me with this product. I also take it because it takes some of my arthritis pain away. Also really wonderful as a boost to help the immune system fight off invaders like a cold or a flu, I have found.

Excellent product. I have used Alka-thyme for 14 years. The only alkalizing mouthwash I have found. Can alkalize the body by putting a few drops in a glass of water and drinking it once a day too, great for helping psoriasis sufferers. Also (read instructions first) a great eye wash. Only use 2 drops of Alka-thyme diluted with water in an eyecup. I did this for a bad eye infection and it was gone in two days. Cool and minty fresh. A little goes a long way! Peterborough,Canada

This product reminds me of the eucalyptus forest in Maui Hawaii. That is where I found this amazingly relaxing, yet invigorating scent. As you breathe in the beautiful combinations of herbs and essential oils, you will be transported to a calm and soothing place. My skin always feels nurished with good oils when I use it. I personally have very dry skin due to psoriasis, and it works very well for me. It makes the whole house smell nice! Thanks! Sunshine

I am so glad I started taking Nature's Plus Liquid Sunshine vitamin D3 5000IU. I have been taking 1 tablespoon or a little more, every 2-3 days for about a year now. Liquid Sunshine Vitamin D3 has been "ONE OF THE BEST" things I have found to naturally help my skin heal the psoriasis I have had for 28 years! I was concerned at the beginning that taking a high amount of vitamin D3 would be a risk, but a good friend recommended trying it because of her good results, and I have not had any bad side effects. This brand tastes fruity and I look forward to it taking it, but it does have some preservatives which I wish weren't in there. It has helped to make me feel happier, and less stressed out too. The author Joanna Budwig recommends taking vitamin d (the sunshine vitamin) with good omega fats and oils. They work better when taken together. I take mine with one Myristin (cetlymyristoleate) capsule, but if you use hemp oil, flax oil, or another good omega 3/6/9 like Udo's Choice, that would be great too. I agree with another reviewer, that the bottle is hard to pour and measure. It's a great price for the amount but the circumference of the bottle is too big. I would suggest to the manufacturer to put a clear lid on it, with a measuring line on the lid, for 1 tablespoon, and if it were the same amount but in a skinnier bottle that would be awesome! I have tried another formula, but have come back to Nature's Plus Liquid Sunshine because I feel it works better for me. Thanks Nature's Plus and iherb for another wonderful product! Sunshine. Update: They have fixed the seal inside. There is now a small hole that you perforate with a knife and the Vitamin D3 liquid comes out slowly. Easier to measure now. Thanks!!!

Works great! I can feel my body relaxing only 10 minutes after taking one Doctor's Best Suntheanine L-Theanine 150mg cap. I have tried it for a few days now, and I am getting to sleep faster, and having a deeper restful sleep. I have never taken any medication for sleeping before as I usually sleep quite well, but my sleep patterns are off at bit these days. I do have an auto-immune disease, so I am being careful and watching for any unusual signs. I would recommend asking your doctor for sure about this first, because it works very well, and it may or may not be ok if you are taking certain other medication. Nighty night! :)

Thanks to Aubrey for this great product! I have been buying GPB for 17 years now, since being introduced to it by a friend in Maui. I hadn't bought the GPB conditioner for awhile and my hair had gotten really dry from swimming in the pool this summer. So I bought a big bottle of it and oh my God...it still is one of the best thick, healthy, shiny, volume boosting, moisturizing conditioners I have ever used. I have fine hair and usually lots of it, but lately as I age, it has been greying a little, and a bit thinner. The Aubrey Organics GPB conditioner has completely restored the healthy look and feel back to my hair! I am going to use it a lot more again. It is really like a hair mask and smells better than ever. I leave it on for 5 mins while in the bath. It has not taken the grey out of course, but my hair is smoother now. I wonder if they have added more natural essential oils, because it smells a little bit fresher now too. Works wonderfully as a shave cream. Thanks also to iherb for a fast 2 day delivery!

This is a great product if you have a new yeast infection, or a chronic long-term candida albicans yeast infection. I don't know why so little is listed on their bottle. It is very powerful, and you should follow the directions. I have used this a few times over the years, for yeast infections, as many women understand how vulnerable we are to changes in the female chemistry, like the alkalinity and acidity balance. Best used when combined with a good probiotic, pure cranberry juice, and a yeast free diet. Also helped me to cure a kidney infection naturally with no anti-biotics, when used with other things listed.
