Trusted brand, excellent product!
I like that these are shelf stable, and I usually keep a single card of them in my purse. Different strains of probiotics work better on different health situations, so do your research and find out which ones may be most helpful to you. If you are also taking antibiotics, take your probiotics a few hours apart or at the opposite time of day so they don't compete. :)
A brand I trust, and this version is very hard to find in stores
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Jun 30, 2012 | Verified Purchase
I have been using Similisan products for years. My eyes are very sensitive, and tend to get very dry. Opthalmologists have always told me to get "natural tears" or products without preservatives which can further irritate, but most of the ones they recommend rely heavily on glycerin, which I don't want to out in my eyes--yuck! Similisan offers a range of excellent homeopathic eye drops, and I use several of them. I also like their Allergy Eye Relief, Dry Eye Relief, and Irritated Eye Relief. They have products for styes and pink eye too, which I have not used. Look up your own symptoms and the corresponding homeopathic remedies suggested, then check the ingredient panel on the back of the Similisan box, as each formulation is different. I rotate through several of their products depending on what symptom is presenting most acutely for me. Although I have such sensitive and dry eyes to begin with, I make my own situation worse be working all day on a computer at work, and then "relaxing" on a computer at home, all of which is very hard on my eyes. The Computer Eye Relief is a welcome relief when I suffer from eyestrain. I can usually find several of the other Similisan eye drops at any health food store and nowadays at many drug stores, but for some reason the Computer Eye Relief is normally not carried in nearby stores, so I buy it here. I also try to supplement well with omega 3's, which help to lubricate my eyes. My ophthalmologist always recommends that too. Take good care of the windows to your soul! :)
Cat sitter's secret for happy cats

I cat sit for my friends' four cats, and these calming chews really help them to relax without their beloved house family. I like and trust this brand, and iHerb offers a much better price than what I find locally. A local vet sells these for $4.99.
Wonderful whole food blend, even fewer than than recommended dose can make a big difference!

My sweetie swears by this vitamin. When he takes just a couple a day (rather than 3 with each meal as suggested) he finds that his energy and all-around feeling of wellness are much better. I can't take them because I find them too dry and large to easily swallow. The ingredients are amazing, a blend of nutrients in their whole food state, nothing synthetic here. The antioxidants come from fruits and veggies. Tonic mushrooms and sea veggies add super benefits you may not get in your regular diet. NOTE that coffee extract and green tea are part of the blend, so depending on your situation these could either be energy-enhancing or too stimulating. Play with the dose and build it up, don't try 9 the first day for instance. If you have allergies/sensitivities or complicated health issues please read labels carefully because in a comprehensive blend like this you may find something tucked in there that you shouldn't be taking. 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 radiant wellness! :)
Good value for pharmaceutical grade-- LARGE softgels
Really good price, good content, and a good brand. I sometimes have a hard time with huge horse pills. These are nice and slippery, but if you can't deal with swallowing huge pills then there are other good brands available here in much smaller pills like the Enzymatic Therapy Eskimo-3 which are teeny tiny and of excellent quality. Omega 3 oils are available from a variety of sources, and these softgels may contain mackerel, anchovy, and/or sardine. I used to find these harder to digest and burpy, but now that I also take digestive enzymes they are no problem. When my sensitive dry eyes are feeling extra parched I take several Natural Factors RxOmega-3 Factors with a good sized meal and my eyes feel soothed and moisturized within a couple of hours. :)
Great for my problem skin

I have very sensitive skin, prone to redness, rashes, break-outs, etc. This worked well for me, but might have stirred things up a little before clearing them up. If you have sensitive skin this bar may or may not be right for you. Try a little patch test first. :)
Sample was a great way to try out this great little probiotic
Posted by WildSweetVermont on Aug 15, 2012 | Verified Purchase
It worked well for me in trying to balance out long term antibiotic use. I really appreciated the opportunity to sample Healthy Origins Probiotics for a week in order to decide if the full size would be right for me. I alternate my probiotics as different strains benefit different issues, but this is definitely one I will order in my rotation from now on. :)
***18 calories per package*** and everyone enjoyed them!
I'm trying to eat more paleo or primal food, and in any case I don't eat wheat/gluten noodles and try to cut down on carbs. I was excited to get kelp into my diet in yet another form, but I didn't have high hopes for taste and mouth-feel for these noodles. It turns out I didn't need to worry. Check out other reviews for a bunch of different takes on how to prepare them. I soaked them for a while in water with some lemon as some reviewers suggested. They were still a bit hard as I didn't want to oversoak them to mush, but when I added them to hot cooked Vietnamese chicken and veggies the consistency was perfect, just a little al dente. I thought that microwaving leftovers might turn them to hot jelly, but they kept their form and consistency quite well. Full of happy surprises! :)
Good for healthy teeth
I like that Xyli-White is SLS-free and flouride-free, and it contains ingredients I appreciate such as silica and tea tree oil. It cleans well, it tastes good, and I like that xylitol is good for the teeth, not just good tasting. I believe the great reviews for this product...and...everyone's tooth and gum health or sensitivity is different. Check with your own dentist to see what s/he suggests for your own situation. :)
Not only sugar-free, but actually good for teeth!

I like the green tea flavor for a change. While I can find other flavors of this line in my local health food store, I can't get the green tea flavor so I buy it here at iHerb. It's a clean kind of green tea taste, and xylitol has been shown to actually be good for our teeth.
