Excellent value and effectiveness

Posted on Nov 28, 2008

35 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

For my personally, besides taking it on a regular basis for liver protection, I give it to my 14 year old to control acne (which is often caused by the hormones overloading the liver) and I myself take it in increased amount whenever I have shoulder pain. Here's the blurb where I describe it on my website: Excellent value for double strength silymarin combined with dandelion root and artichoke extract. Now also makes a 1x Silymarin extract called Now Silymarin which contains silymarin in a base of turmeric powder and is also an excellent silymarin combination when taken in small amounts (up to double recommended) since too much turmeric powder can causing a burning sensation. Now Silymarin 2x contains no "hot" herbs in it though so can be taken in large amounts if necessary. Besides cleaning the liver of all manner of toxins, silymarin protects it, too. One of the first clinical studies on its properties was conducted on rats where half were fed silymarin then all of them were fed deathcap mushrooms. All the ones who had silymarin lived while all the ones without it died. Even so, it is not recommended to test silymarin's protective effects by eating poisons which are toxic to the liver!

Best all around antiparasitic

Posted on Dec 14, 2006

14 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Excellent antiparasitic but hard to find at a good discount (except at iHerb!). Contains concentrates of black walnut, clove, and wormwood with both annua and absynthium types. Does not stimulate elimination directly as do many antiparasitic combinations. Wormwood annua may make it more effective for blood borne parasites like spirochetes and it also appears to have some action against bacterial and fungal infections. Highly recommended. -- turf

Excellent value for an excellent antioxidant

Posted on Nov 28, 2008

Purchased at iHerb

Now Curcumin is one of the least expensive turmeric extract supplements. Curcumin is one of the best single antioxidants and provides a number of other benefits including controlling inflammation on a par with prescription anti-inflammatories, including controlling COX-2 inflammatory enzymes, plus it has the side benefit of improving liver function instead of destroying it like many prescription drugs do. Also helps balance intestinal flora. Like other super antioxidants, one of the actions of curcumin is preserving vitamin C and E in the body, so it is a good idea to first ensure that adequate amounts of these are used before using additional antioxidants. Now Curcumin is my favorite "Super Antioxidant."

Excellent heart and circulation supplement

Posted on Oct 17, 2009

7 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

For me it appears to lower blood pressure and improve cholesterol levels, and it definitely increases circulation. An excellent value for the 1:1:1 ratio of lysine, proline, and vitamin C recommended by Rath and Pauling, plus it includes hawthorn and grape seed extracts. The downside is the tablets are highly hydrophyllic, easily absorbing moisture from the air, so keep the desiccant packet inside and the lid tightly closed if it is humid.

Excellent multimineral formula

Posted on Nov 28, 2008

6 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Good multimineral with MCHA (microcrystalline hydroxyapatite) forms of minerals, a well-absorbed type bound with phosphorus and similar to the type of calcium found in bones. Bone Strength is the same formula as Doctor's Trust Bone Builder with Boron. Since it contains some glucosamine, it is an excellent mineral supplement for those with arthritis and other painful joint conditions.. Now Bone Strength and Now Full Spectrum Mineral Caps are my favorite multivitamins. Bone Strength contains an approx 3:2 ratio of calcium to magnesium while Full Spectrum Mineral Caps contains a 1:1 ratio, but does not contain glucosamine. Either one is excellent.

Almost tasteless, excellent effects

Posted on Nov 24, 2008

10 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

This is fractionally distilled to exclude the bitter components so is almost flavorless. Helps with acid indigestion as well as soothing the digestive tract. Also, it can be used in a spray bottle to soften skin and help against wrinkles. I dislike other aloe juices that have citric or other types of acid preservatives or other irritants in them and this is the only one I have found that does not contain them.

Good multivitamin, great value

Posted on Nov 28, 2008

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

A good multivitamin that is mostly noted for its large amount of biotin, one of the nutrients which makes the most difference in a multivitamin since it makes hair grow faster and improves nails and skin, but cheap multivitamins often skimp on it. It can be taken in double the recommended amount to make it a high potency multivitamin. Contains a bit of gymnema sylvestre to help control cholesterol levels and other liver nutrients including carnitine, choline, and inositol. Not a great multivitamin (except for the large amount of biotin) but a perfect multivitamin for tight economic times since it is very economical.

Best value pressure supplement

Posted on Jul 05, 2008

Herb, vitamin, and mineral combination is one of the best single supplements I have found to fight high blood pressure, and also the best value. It includes a good amount of taurine and beta sitosterol and is an excellent value for the beta sitosterol (also known as phytosterol) alone. Also appears to work to improve sexual function. Works best combined with omega 3 fish oil

Excellent value for 1:1 ratio calcium magnesium powder

Posted on Aug 13, 2009

Purchased at iHerb

The title says it all. Dissolves pretty quickly in juice (I use grapefruit or pineapple) and does not taste bad. Contains well absorbed citrate forms of both calcium and magnesium in equal ratio. An excellent powder supplement and good cleanser when taken at night since the large amount of magnesium stimulates elimination. Great value, too, considering 227g of powder is the equivalent of 454 (500mg) capsules.

One of my favorite calcium magnesium (with trace minerals) supplements since it is in highly absorbable forms and the best deal I have seen on a 1:1 ratio supplement.
