I have been using alternative medicine for 20+ years. I’m passionate about learning all I can to help me and my loved ones to maintain or return to radiant health. I love reading reviews on iHerb, *and* I trust my own doctors and my body’s wisdom to determine what is right for me. I’m committed to shopping locally…and often iHerb has the very best prices I can find, so I’m a happy shopper here as well. Thank you for visiting my page. Be well and happy! :)

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.
The packaging makes this a lovely gift, but I chose to keep mine for personal spa-like treatments. I love Waleda products, but I may not have tried all of these lovely oils had it not been for this sampler. It's hard for me to choose a favorite, but I think for me it's the Birch cellulite oil. Beautiful scents, moisturizing and healing, excellent quality all the way around.

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! :)

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! :)

I bought these by "mistake" for a friend when the New Chapter line was on special. I had been using Zyflamend for a year or so and knew how effective they were, so when her knees started acting up and getting inflamed I thought Zyflamend would help. The "mistake" was not realizing these were the EasyCaps. I am going to start ordering them for myself instead of the WholeBody softgels I have been taking. The pills are so small and easy to swallow, yet still pack a strong punch against pain and inflammation. Heal well!
Helpful for depression, insomnia, anxiety. Dreams may become *very* vivid. If you wake a lot during the night 5-HTP can be helpful in easing you back to slumber instead of remaining awake. Doctor's Best is a brand I trust. Recommended!

I live in a very overcast area, and don't spend tons of time outside, so I don't get much vitamin D from sunlight. These little softgels really seem to help to keep my blood levels of D in a more normal range. Without supplementation my levels dip dangerously low. I like the dosage as well...I can take a few a day if need be, and when I take just one I don't need to worry that I'm taking a high potency that may not be good for my daily use. :)
I find these softgels pretty large but slippery and easy enough to swallow. I rotate them into my Omega-3 regimine, and am hoping to get my sweetie to try them as well as his doctor wants to put him on medication for high cholesterol if he doesn't get his numbers down. He doesn't want to change his diet but I'm hoping Coq-10 and omegas with flax will help. I will update my review in a couple of months after he incorporates them into his plan and gets his cholesterol levels tested again. :)

We bought the 360 softgel size after trying these. Teeny tiny size, easy to swallow. I live in a very overcast part of the world, part of the reason my Vitamin D levels tested shockingly low. This supplement helped a LOT. Check with your doctor or health practitioner to see what dosage may be right for you. A follow-up blood test to check levels is important to make sure you don't overdo it over time. :)

My sweetie and I have been using the Enzymedica digestive enzymes for the past few years, and we are very happy with them--except for the cost. I bought these Daily Digestives when they were on Super Special. For $5 I could not resist. I will use these when we are in between orders of Enzymedica Digest, but I try to avoid blister packs as a regular item because of the added packaging. Even at the regular iHerb price these are a great deal and seem to be a very good enzyme.
