Abundant feel-good antioxidants and Vitamin C, NO fillers!
I was looking for a good, natural form of Vitamin C and found Camu Camu here on iHerb. I had never heard of this little Amazonian fruit, which is similar to a cherry. I found these veggie caps an easy size to swallow, and easy on my stomach unlike some acidy vitamin C supplements I have tried. It's an excellent antioxidant, and there are studies showing it can be helpful for attention deficit disorder and depression. Remember to always check with your own doctor to make sure that a supplement is right for you and won't interfere with other things you are taking, etc. Heal well! :)
Keeps the mice away, and the price on this size is amazing!
I had been buying the 1 or 2 oz. sizes regularly from local health food stores, but this is *so* much more economical since I use so much of it! NOTE--he smaller sizes are packaged to dispense 1 drop at a time, while this larger size uses a regular pour style opening. I will keep ordering this size (or the 16 oz) as refills for the 2 oz. size bottles with the dropper cap. I live in a very old house with lots of holes that deer mice like to slip through. I read that using peppermint essential oil on strategically placed cotton balls helps to deter mice from entering a home. Of course if you can figure out where they come in, plug those holes as well as you can! If you do use cotton balls, they need to be refreshed regularly, at least every couple of weeks. I also use this oil in our car, as I learned that mice can get in the car, under the hood, etc. and cause a lot of damage when they gnaw. I also like to use it in the home diluted in a mister bottle as a freshening room spray. When I did so I seemed to kill off a disturbingly large number of Asian lady beetles (they look like pale Ladybugs but secrete something that smells AWFUL) that made their way into the house. I hear that ants and other insects also peppermint. It can be an eye irritant and quite the sinus cleaner if you use too much around the house, but it doesn't bother us at all. I'm so very grateful for this fresh and natural way to combat rodents and other pests.
Skin looks fantastic!

I bought the Jarrow Toco-Sorb as I read that the absorbability was much better for this form of Vitamin E. My cholesterol levels are fantastic, and I believe that alternating high quality vitamin E has helped with that. I have read pros and cons about palm oil over the years, so do your research to decide if this seems like a good supplement for your own health issues. Heal well! :)
My sweetie feels it his hands when he goes without
This may be one of those products that could take you a little while to notice that it makes a big difference, yet try to go without it and the positive benefits are very clear. My sweetie and I are getting to be the age where it feels like the warranty on some of our parts is up, and knees are at the top of the list. For him it's also fingers, and without this product he starts to experience a lot more pain and stiffness in his knuckles. With it he is much more comfortable and able to do more. We have rotated brands but this one is amazing.
Easy to swallow, no fish burps
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jun 25, 2012
Very good quality in a brand I trust. I don't like horse pills, even slippery ones, and these are nice and small and easy to swallow. In my home it's used for skin, brain, joints, inflammation, etc. to good effect. Always check in with your own doctor/healing team to make sure that a supplement (or dosage) is right for you. Here's to your good health! :)
Nom nom nom! :)
I love frankincense and myrrh, and this delicious bath bar is no exception. It’s generously sized and lasts a long time. The ingredients are good for my skin, including macadamia seed oil, vitamins, jojoba oil, cocoa butter, and raw shea butter, which can be kind of pricy. I look forward to my showers with this soap. I love the sumptuous scent, and it feels nourishing and decadent to use. There is some cardamom, ginger and black pepper rounding out the scent and adding a very mild warm spiciness overall. My skin is ultra sensitive, but I find this soap mild and non-irritating, and it doesn’t dry my skin out. I love this soap, and keep coming back for more!
I recommend this product all the time!

2 capsules isn't enough to really reap the benefit of this excellent anti-inflammatory. The quality ingredients in this product have been of immeasureable help to me and my loved ones in terms of pain, stiffness, arthritis, inflammation, carpal tunnel, exercise recovery and more. I highly, highly recommend.
My sweetie found them as effective as much more expensive vitamins he had tried
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Aug 06, 2012
I bought these for my sweetie who swears that when he takes vitamin E he doesn't need to get up to urinate 2 or 3 times during the night. He has always been a stickler for the mixed tocopherols, and I missed when I ordered these based on price and reviews that they are d-alpha tocopheryl acetate and not mixed tocopherols. I like and trust the Country Life brand so much, and I have had such good experiences with their other products that I just ordered it without carefully looking at their description. He reported he was actually surprised that these "got the job done" for him in a way he never experienced except with mixed tocopherols. For the price, quality and effectiveness we will be ordering these again. I also like that they are certified gluten-free so I can borrow them from him when I want. :)
Surrounded by sick people at work, this was my secret weapon for staying well!
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jul 31, 2012
I'll always be grateful that my co-worker shared that this was *her* secret weapon against sickness: Source Naturals Wellness Formula Herbal Defense Complex. We just called it "Wellness" for short. I had noticed that my colleague didn't seem to be out sick as often as everyone else, and I asked her why. We worked with a lot of very sick clients with all sorts of health conditions, and co-workers were regularly calling in sick with everything that was going around from colds and flu to stomach virus and more all year round, not just during flu season. Once I started taking these I just did not get sick with any of the things that were being passed around. I agree with another reviewer who pointed out that these tablets are especially helpful when taken at the first signs that you are getting sick or feeling unwell. Remember to always check with your own doctor to make sure that a supplement is right for you and won't interfere with other things you are taking, etc. Here's to your own fabulous wellness! :)
Helped get blood levels back in the healthy range where they should be!
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jul 30, 2012
When blood tests showed my D levels were extremely low I started taking these softgels instead of the 50,000 unit pills per week my doctor prescribed. I just did not feel well on the prescription. I took healthy Origins D3 2,400 IU twice a day for some weeks, then one a day til my levels were in a healthier range. Now I alternate between 1,000 IU per day and these for upkeep. If you supplement with Vitamin D please do get your levels rechecked to make sure you aren't overdoing it over the long haul. Heal well! :)
