After spending twenty five years reading through available data and trying various supplements and beauty products, I have come to discover the joy of natural ingredients that are healthy for me as well as make me feel and look great. I’m a 45 year old woman and I look to be in my mid 30’s. Admittedly, if I worked out harder, didn’t drink any alcohol or spend any time under the suns rays I could potentially have an even younger appearance, but what fun is there in that? Why did I start out on this path of ruthless trial, error, research and expense? Perhaps I’m gluten for punishment? Well, no. I was born with some health issues that got dramatically worse as I aged. Surgery took care of part of it, but afterwards I was left with thin dry, wrinkled skin and lips, eyes so dry they stuck to the inside of my eyelids and failing eyesight, cracked, yellow and peeling nails, brittle bones, tinnitus, insomnia, flat, sagging breasts and osteoarthritis. Instead of dying at the age the doctors claimed I would… I have turned all of this around! I work as a representative for www.iherb.com and that helps me to continue on with my research. No, I don’t take everything that I have listed here everyday, however I wanted to highlight the best things in this book so that my readers could make informed decisions when making the investment of your actual body as well as time and money. If you are a first time customer of iHerb, you can you use my personal code WIR500 and receive $5.00 off your first order. Shipping is less than most or free. The first part of this book is mostly scientific documentation that I feel is pertinent to staying healthy and looking young. After that, all of the products that work for me will be listed in alphabetical order followed by the benefits I received from using them, as well as hundreds of reviews will be listed. Please keep in mind that the reviews are from actual people who have used each individual product and decided to share their experience with others who are interested in giving the product a try. I’ve added my street educated opinion within the data I have collected. Here’s to feeling better than ever and turning back the aging clock! Okay let’s begin with the scientific data on the following page.


I’ve always been an adamant believer, in that everything in life happens for a reason and always comes full circle. You can choose to broaden or lessen the circumference of that circle. In this book I will be covering ways to make changes to your body and your skin as you go through life. Changes that will help you repair, relax, extend and further enjoy this wonderful circle, filled with its many cycles and stages of growth, degeneration, rest and repair. Most of us have heard the saying, you are born dying, and this is true, is it not? We are all born from our mother’s womb and each and every one of us will die. From the very breath we take, to that which we consume and how we manage our thoughts, stress and the quality and quantity of exercise we get determines how well we age. Although I personally have not seen proof of this, I believe it to be true as well. We can unknowingly pass on degenerative disorders to our children. Damaged cellular structures that are left untreated become a part of the new born child that we bring out into this world. I also believe that the thoughts that we focus on while a child is in our womb, (yes, this part just pertains to the ladies) will also be passed onto our innocent baby. Creating new habits such as walking more, sleeping better, managing stress and choosing nourishment as the food we intake over things that are nothing more than hazardous stomach filler, are extremely important. Scientific research talks about oxidative stress (cells damaged by free radicals). This stress of the cells that make up our bodies is known to accelerate aging. Metabolic wear and tear contributes to hundreds of conditions which will negatively affect our health. The healthier we are the better we look and feel. Taking the right supplements and doing what is best for our bodies can turn back the clock adding quality years to our lives. The human body is a complex, self contained system. Some organs produce new cells others use cells to perform their individual functions. There are also scavenger cells that are produced in order to remove dead cells from our bodies. These house keepers are specialized white blood cells called macrophages. Microphages remove dead cells and pathogens, which helps to explain the Greek meaning of the word as Big Eater. I’m not a doctor and my scientific experience only comes from my own curiosity. There is a myriad of information out there on this subject. Research this to your minds content. Until then here is a little more information on this subject: A macrophage cell can detect dead cells through a sense of smell much like scavengers detect the presence of decay in other animals. Whenever dead cells reach the part of the bloodstream protected by a macrophage, the macrophages surround them and convert them into easily removed components. At the same time, the macrophage covers the dead cells with a substance known as an antigen. This action tags the cells for further attack from other types of cells in the body's immune system. Ideally, the macrophages and killer T-cells should render both dead cells and foreign invaders harmless enough to re-enter the bloodstream for elimination.


However when macrophages become overwhelmed, they may allow some dead cells to pass through unprocessed. The DNA from those cells may trigger an inflammatory reaction as the dead cells combine with other substances. This process is the basis for many autoimmune diseases such as Crohn's disease or lupus. Bolstering the body's macrophages is often a course of treatment recommended for autoimmune diseases and even some forms of cancer. When external skin cells die, there are a number of mechanical and chemical methods used to slough them off. Exfoliant creams and scrub brushes are often employed to remove the dead cells and encourage new cell turnover. However, dead cells within the human body are not so easily removed. They go through a much more complicated elimination process, which is not always as efficient or thorough. Living cells become dead cells through two different processes. Many cells are programmed to die at a predetermined time, through a process called apoptosis. Red blood cells, for example, are programmed to die after 120 days of service. Other cells, such as white blood cells, may be programmed to die an apoptotic death after only a few days. These dead cells may continue to flow through the body's bloodstream or collect in various organs, but they are clearly no longer contributing to the system. Another process for creating dead cells is called necrosis. Necrotic cell death often occurs after a trauma, infection or other shock to the delicate body encapsulated system. When cells become necrotic, they may be removed through surgery or other medical intervention, but often they enter the bloodstream in the same way as atopic cells. The body cannot function well with an overabundance of dead cells, so macrophages take on the mission of breaking down the excess. Oxidative stress often occurs as a side effect of normal human functioning. When cells in the human body use oxygen to make energy, they can create reactive molecules known as free radicals. These molecules are unstable because they lack a very important electron. Inside the body, they can potentially react with almost any other molecule. Oxidative stress is the cell damage associated with the chemical reaction between free radicals and other molecules in the body. The cell damage caused by oxidative stress is believed to be behind a number of illnesses, such as cancer or autoimmune disease. The body generally uses nutrients known as antioxidants to control cellular stress. Antioxidants are believed to boost immunity, as well as preventing cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and macular degeneration. Antioxidants may even help to slow the signs of aging and progression of Alzheimer's disease. Oxidative stress usually occurs when there are more free radicals than antioxidants in the body. When free radical and antioxidant levels are imbalanced, free radicals are left to bond chemically with the cells of the body. Free radicals are so unstable and they will negatively affect almost any other type of molecule. They are believed capable of significant damage to cells and proteins in the body. Free radicals may be responsible for damaging a cell's DNA so that the cell mutates and reproduces out of control, forming a cancer. Some amount of oxidative stress is almost always an inevitable result of aging. Other factors that can contribute to oxidative cellular stress include; cigarette smoking, pollution, exposure to excess sunlight, and poor nutrition. Doctors believe that cellular stress can be largely controlled by avoiding cigarettes, using UV protection, and eating a diet high in antioxidants.


Antioxidants are nutrients that generally act to cleanse the body of free radicals by giving up an electron. When a free radical molecule takes an electron from an antioxidant molecule, the free radical stabilizes. Once stabilized, the free radical can no longer cause damage. Aging may be inevitable, but the rate of aging is not. Why and how our body ages is still largely a mystery, although we are learning more and more each year. Scientists do maintain, however, that chronological age has little bearing on biological age. There are theories that hold the idea that damages to our DNA caused through a variety of factors, could speed up the aging process in the originating individual as well as be passed along to future generations. Let’s begin to look into the things that can be done to assist our body’s healing process. The body on its own is such an amazing mechanism programmed to try and heal itself at all costs. Something to keep in mind is that if we accelerate the healing process within ourselves, we may also be accelerating the growth of invading cells that can cause serious negative and irreversible health conditions let alone accelerate the growth of tumors that may or may not be inoperable. What is required sounds simple, but can be quite difficult. It’s easy to balance something you can see, but how do you balance what is going on inside your body? For me it was a matter of trial and error. Too much or too little of a good thing will not help you in the long run. I began to listen to my body. Paying attention to my aches, pains, wrinkles, thin skin, spots and bumps, hair falling out, sleeplessness, whatever it was. Now, I always pay attention and take note of what my body is trying to tell me instead of masking it somehow. The supplements that I have listed herein basically saved my life and greatly decreased my biological age. My body has taught me a great deal over this past 25 years. You might want to try the things I have outlined here and see how they affect you and then keep taking what gives you positive, healthy changes. I may also mention products that work best when they are used topically and in conjunction with a particular compound. Listen to your body. Let it tell you what you need. The following is a list of 14 supplements and other items that are part of my iHerb.com wish list. Part two of this book will be completed after I complete a little more research. There are even more great products available that I have yet to discover and if you choose to shop iHerb.com, don’t forget that you can save $5.00 on your first order (no minimum) if you enter code WIR500 when you check out. Enjoy.

The following is a handful of reviews from people around the world that have used this MSM supplement. This is great August 18, 2011 From California Excellent product and great price. It does what it promises.

Stronger bones August 05, 2011 I have been taking MSM for over a year and was happy to find this in tablet for. I feel this has helped my bones strength i fell tripped over something and nothing broke. I know this is anecdotal but for me it is truth.

Great for fibromyalgia pain July 27, 2011 By Donna E Robinson From Alabama I suffer a lot of muscle, joint and bone pain due to fibromyalgia. MSM is excellent for same. In easing a lot of pain, I am able to get chores done with little-to-no pain. It is also excellent for carpal tunnel. I highly recommend this product.

Detox July 02, 2011 From Greece helps detoxification process. i think it works. Feel better.

Powerful Joint Relief May 30, 2011 From Texas I have had carpal tunnel since I was young, injury due to learning to play quicker than my hands had been trained to go. I'm in my 40's now and was trying this product for a different reason. I found that the day after I took my first pill I had no trouble with my hands at ALL! Not even a twinge! I was able to play piano fluidly even without a chance to warm my hands up. So now, when I know I have to play piano, I take one the night before. I also noticed my knees (which can give me trouble from time to time) feel great going up and down stairs and doing rigorous exercises like Tae-Bo and Zumba after taking one pill the night before! These results have been a God-send considering I bought the product for my SKIN! LOL I'd highly recommend these if you have any joint or carpal tunnel issues! I will be buying this product again!!

Personally, I have noticed a remarkable improvement with mobility and the texture of my skin has changed. My knees no longer crackle when I go down the stairs. My skin seems less translucent and more supple. I also use Now Foods, MSM Liposome Lotion, 8 fl oz (237 ml). This lotion is great


on it’s own, however it is also a great base if you want to add a little more vitamin E, almond oil or what ever favorite you would like to combine with it to boost it’s nutritive properties. Synergistically using MSM products has produced the best results for me. Jarrow Formulas, N-A-G 750, 750 mg, 120 Capsules(JRW-19002)

Description N-Acetyl Glucosamine Salt Free Supports Joints and Intestinal Health Dietary Supplement N-Acetyl Glucosamine is an aminosaccharide, synthesized from glucose and the amino acid Lglutamine, that has been stabilized by complexing it to an acetyl group. N-Acetyl Glucosamine is the body's precursor to hyaluronic acid, which is part of the synovial fluid that lubricates joints. N-A-G is produced in the intestinal tract via specialized cells called goblet cells which are responsible for producing your mucin (or mucosal lining). N-Acetyl Glucosamine is the versatile form of glucosamine for joint and intestinal tissue. This product is best taken with BioSil™, the only high potency source of orthosilicic acid, the biologically active form of silicon that strengthens joints. Suggested Use Take 1 to 3 capsules per day, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant. Supplement Facts Supplement Facts Serving size 1 Capsule

Good March 19, 2011 From Massachusetts Just started taking this product, seems to be working well

Best ever for my arthritis Pain January 12, 2011 From Canada This glucosamine product assists my system in two ways. I have experienced irritable bowel system in the pass and it keeps it in check. Also without taking this form of glucosamine, my back and muscle pain would be much worst. As long as I am taking it I can keep any discomfort to a minimum. Thanks iHerb for continue to have this product for my benefit.

Great product. September 23, 2010 From Great Britain Great product and price. I am using this with aloe vera flakes and Thorne GI-Encap to heal leaky gut and stomach problems. Used together they are very effective. Great price.

N-A-G 750 Formula August 29, 2010 From California I'm taking this formula as a supplement for my RA

I used to take hyaluronic acid (HA) for my joints, skin and intestinal function, now I take N-A-G instead. N-A-G is the precursor to hyaluronic acid, which is part of the synovial fluid that lubricates joints. It also keeps things moving smoothly though our bodies. I’ve found that in using a substance that is a component of the formation (precursor) of a certain product, the effect is greater. It’s almost as if it is directing my body to produce more of that which I am lacking. Getting our bodies to produce their own recourses is always the best way to go in my opinion.


Jarrow Formulas, N-A-C Sustain, 600 mg, 100 Bilayer Tablets(JRW-07001)

Description Patented Formula! N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine New Bilayer Tablets! Quick + Sustained Releases Antioxidant and Glutathione Precursor Dietary Supplement NAC Sustain is in a bilayer Quick Release / Sustained Release format of N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC), a powerful antioxidant amino acid and a precursor to the critical antioxidant glutathione.

Warnings Keep out of the reach of children. Great help while detoxing August 15, 2011 From Minnesota I am in a serious detox, and take N-A-C Sustain to help rebuild the glutathione levels. It seems to be working very well.

I understand that NAC in the sustained release formula detoxes one molecule at a time, pesticide poisoning. August 15, 2011 From North Carolina With all of the pesticides in our foods, water, air etc. I try to use this regularly...I think it may help reduce the chances or severity of nerve damage (dementia???) and Parkinson type disorders caused by pesticide toxicity.

LH from IL October 28, 2008 From Illinois This product really works great! I have an immune system deficiency and I get lots of colds and flus, and this NAC has cut down on my sick time.

Good for the lungs May 19, 2011 By Scott Elliff From Illinois I take this as a preventative for my lung condition (bronchiectasis). This particular brand offers a sustained release, which research appears to indicate is more beneficial and assimilable.

The best NAC SUPPLEMENT, and one of the best free-radical fighters, March 19, 2011 From Great Britain The time-release function of this supplement really hits on target for creating a superior formula. MAke sure you take this if you care at all about oxidation in your body. Many antioxidants are very useful, and target different free-radicals, in different parts of the body. However nothing, even arguably ALA, can come close to the effects of NAC! Nac's action on the human system is global, and it has hundreds of receptors for free-radicals once converted to Glutathione. Other anti-oxidants don't approach this! Take with Alpha-lipoic acid to help recycle protection further. I would also says Ascorbyl Palmitate is a good idea! My usually pale skin was visibly pink again within days to to the positive action of NAC. It does wonders for the skin and hair.


After having pneumonia 3 times in my life, I started taking supplements like this. The antioxidant qualities are wonderful. It seems to cut down on a mucus response that I used to get after eating anything. I also haven’t been sick since I’ve been keeping my body as clear as possible of toxic enzymes that can hide in mucous. Jarrow Formulas, CarotenALL, Mixed Carotenoid Complex, 60 Softgels (JRW-12018)

Description For Cardiovascular, Vision and Prostate Health Lycopene, Lutein and Zeaxanthin Alpha, Beta Carotene, Astaxanthin Dietary Supplement CarotenAll contains alpha and beta-carotene extracted from palm fruit (Caromin) in ratios identical to carrots. One softgel of CarotenAll provides greater amounts of the major carotenoids (Alpha-, BetaCarotene, Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Lycopene) than 5 - 6 servings of fruits and vegetables. Lycopene is an antioxidant carotenoid extracted from GMO-free tomatoes by Lyc-O-Mato. Lycopene supports healthy prostate function and protects against damage from free radical singlet oxygen. Lutein is an antioxidant carotenoid that occurs in nature with zeaxanthin. Dietary lutein and zeaxanthin concentrate in the eye's macula and lens and protect these tissues from oxidative stress. Astaxanthin is a highly potent antioxidant carotenoid found in seafood and algae that protects lipids from peroxidation.

Five stars July 30, 2011 From Spain For anyone over 45, this is a must-have. The dosage of lutein (10mg) and zeaxanthin (2mg) are perfectly in sync with the American Optometric Association's 2011 recommendations. The Alpha-Carotene content is in response to recent clinical discoveries (research it on Google). It's terrific that Jarrow dosed the overall Vit A at 52% Daily Value, since we're getting the other 48% (and then some) in our regular diet (fresh spinach, carrots, pumpkin, mangoes, etc.) However, I'm disappointed that Jarrow provides us a meager half milligram of astaxanthin whereas other specialists go with 8mg a day.

may prevent heart disease April 11, 2011 From Pennsylvania studies in Great Britain from Cambridge show a similar lycopene product stopped ldl oxidation by almost 100% after 60 days. Studies going on all over Europe with lycopene preventing ldl oxidation. English product called Ateronon. This appears to be a good carotenoid product with a patented lycopene called lycomato.

CarontenALL works April 02, 2011 From Pennsylvania It helps me see colors more distinctly. It clears a dry scaling eye problem for my mother. This was an unexpected benefit!


You might notice benefits in a few of days December 01, 2009 From Florida An ophthalmologist recommended an expensive private brand supplement for a dry eye based irritation, brought about by attentively watching computer displays. I found this Jarrow mixture had all the active carotenoids in greater quantities and additional helpful ingredients. The dry eye and other irritations cleared in about three days.

Immunity April 23, 2010 By Lisa Millimet From Maine I use to take a lot of a product called Phycotene, created by the spirulina visonary Christopher Hills of Light Force. It was amazing stuff, rich in many of the generally unacknowleged pigments in algae; many nutritious colors. These are the sunscreen of plants that protect them from UV rays etc. and in doing so, build carotenoids that also protect our immune systems. I always looked tan! I was very sick for years until I took lots of phycotene. Christopher is no longer with us, sadly, and those who bought his company, double sadly, no longer make phycotene. I was bereft. It had returned to me my life. However I have discovered what might be a second best-a formula that does deliver some of what phyotene had. There are many more immune enhancing pigments other than beta carotene and this product has a few of them. It does not have the wondrous blue pigment from algae that made phycotene a miracle: phycocyanin. But it does have several other useful pigments: lutein, Astaxanthin, Lycopene, Beta Carotene. Good, I say.

My eyes were dry to the point of cracking and nothing that I put into them could relieve the distress. I started taking this product to help me with that trauma as well as gain a mild SPF effect. I no longer wake with my eyes stuck to the inside of my lids nor suffer the pain that severe dry eye can cause. My eyes are moist and lubricated without the use of any eye drops.

Great Product! August 10, 2011 From North Carolina I would recommend this product. It has worked well for my skin and hair, I have not noticed any results yet in my nails. iHerb is my new source for vitamins and herbs. I ordered the product using regular shipping, and it arrived in only 2 days. I would highly recommend this company and product.

Niacinamide March 18, 2009 From Arizona This is very useful to me as I have places all over my body that feels like someone is stabbing me and the Niacinamide takes away all those things. Such a relief not to have to fight those all the time. Great product

Good product, good brand, good value March 24, 2011 From California This product does two things for me: it is helping with my cholesterol and, as I take it at bed time, it seems to be helping me sleep better. No negatives. Now Foods is a brand I recommend - I have been using several of their products and found them to all be good quality and effect. And, as always, iHerbs shipping and service are great.

After a couple of weeks of taking 3 capsules a day, most of my allergy symptoms either disappeared or diminished. Unfortunately I have too strong allergies to rely on these alone all of the time, but in mild periods they really do work. If your allergies are only mild then I would definitely try these in stead of using medicines! I still take these even when I am using allergy pills just to strengthen my immune system and my gut, and I also think it helps me in the process of getting rid of very persistent acne.

Works great. May 20, 2011 From California I've been using this product, along with Oil of Oregano for years. I take them together at the first sign of an infection/illness, and they do their job. This is always my first line of defense.

anti-viral May 17, 2011 From Mississippi I have been using this product for genital herpes, and this product and really cut-down on the number and length of my outbreaks. This product is a must if you suffer from cold sores (HSV1) or genital herpes (HSV2).

Very Powerful...Go slowly April 28, 2011 From Colorado OLE is a powerful substance -- at least if you believe the research. I started on this to help with chronic fatigue from EBV. The key is to go SLOWLY. I become profoundly exhausted after starting at the recommended dosage. After some research online, I realized I was experiencing massive DIE OFF of microbes. My liver and kidneys couldn't keep up, hence the exhaustion. So I stopped taking for several days...then went back slowly and am feeling much, much better.


I agree with the above review. Take it slow with this. It’s a great antioxidant… a powerful “cleaner” of sorts. If you try it and notice fatigue, you may want to lessen your dosage until your body can catch up.

Not just for hair December 22, 2010 From Florida This product was recommended to me by a friend who does extensive research on products before trying them. The suggestion that it helps the body absorb calcium was my interest. I felt less aches in joints within days after taking it. Having taken it daily for over two years, I will say that my hair and nail are in better shape. But I feel most confident about what it is doing for those parts of my body I can not see, my bones and joints.

Great product December 02, 2009 From California I started taking this product when I thought I wanted to go blond. Unfortunately, the person I went to was not very competent and I lost a lot of my hair, which was down to my waist. So, I had to have it all trimmed evenly which brought the length up to my shoulders, that is when I started taking the Flora Vegetal Silica. Within 4 years my hair was back down to my waist. I recently stopped taking it and I have noticed a big difference in my hair. It also seemed to me that my complexion was not as nice as when I was taking the silica, so I have started taking it again.

It really works! July 07, 2010 From Singapore Been taking collagen type 1, 2 & 3 for few years but this is the best. It shows positive results in less than a month. My hair and nails have shown improvement. Will continue to order Flora Vegetal Silica. Thank you, iherb!

Strong Bones May 20, 2010 From California I was told by someone who has used this for years that it is the "missing link" to building strong bones. She said her doc is amazed at her bone density at 60. I have osteopenia so am going to use it from now on. Can see benefit in fingernails already.

Terrific product!! March 22, 2010 From Hawaii My nails and hair have improved since taking this product. Thanks, IHerb!


My mom’s osteoporosis was so terrible that if you hugged her to tight, you could break her ribs. I’ve always taken calcium and now I will always take Flora Silica as well. The lines on my hands are nearly gone. Did I mention that I rarely use moisturizer anymore?

excellent March 25, 2011 From Michigan Love the Kyo-Green. Gives me a nice pick me up and helps me through the day without that dragging feeling!

An all around supplement for me February 27, 2011 From New York Friends, I've stopped taking a multi-vitamin and opted for organic food - as much as I can afford - and taking Kyo-green has a lot of what nature has to offer: energy and cleansing. I take 3 a day instead of the recommended six, but I never miss a day. All bodies are not alike: you have to experiement and see what works for you. Best wishes, Ernest in NY

Description Where Nature Begins 100% Blended U.S.A. Bee Pollen Products from the Beehive Dietary Supplement Kosher Parve "While health may not be everything, without your health nothing else matters".—Royden Brown The substances of the beehive have held a revered place throughout history among the ancient cultures of Egypt, Greece, Rome, China, the Middle East, Native America, and the Slavic people.

Great Bee pollen March 10, 2009 From Texas I take this everyday and I give it to my dogs as well! Taste is good but you can always wash it down with water if you can't take the taste..Peeps...I would rather go to a honey bee than a doctor any day of the week! Read up on all natural bee products. Works for me and my mom is one of those few people whose gray hair turned brown again and she is 83 and thrilled. So many benefits from natural bee products!!! Your vitamins for the day are in there plus you could live off of bee pollen and water!!

What a Great Product November 06, 2009 From Arizona I highly recommend bee pollen to anyone. I have been taking this product for the past 3 weeks. The difference is that I have more energy and my allergy symptoms have been relieved. My appetite has diminished and I have less cravings for sweets and carbohydrates. My sleep pattern has been restored. I also am exercising more just because I have more energy.

Great for allergy March 15, 2010 By SOO MEE LEE From Louisiana I love this product. I have seasonal allergy. I've been taking this for a year now and I don't need to take my allergy medicine any more.

My first bee pollen - Quite pleased April 18, 2010 From Texas This is my first try with bee pollen -- I've been eating it on top of oatmeal every morning for the past ten days or so, and a little more throughout the day on most. I certainly feel like I'm on a healthier diet - and I


eat relatively healthy aside from the pollen, anyway. Adding this to a habit I've been adapting of cardio workouts and beginning yoga and things, this feels like its boosted my general my energy levels just as well as the other habits have(!). So this is certainly a product that I'll be sticking with. It tastes great to me - I'll eat it by itself in small pinches at a time. I certainly don't see any need to try any other brands anytime too soon (especially anything that looks dry, is stored on an unrefrigerated store shelf, and is more expensive by the pound).

People love their bee pollen and now I understand why. I gradually worked up to the teaspoon a day which they recommend. I mix it with my special oatmeal (see part two of this series) for a boost like none other. This is the real deal. If you have ever watched bees collect pollen, you have noticed these little multicolored balls of yellow appear around their bodies. Jarrow Formulas, Curcumin 95, 500 mg, 120 Capsules(JRW-14076)

Another product that is said to do this, and also improves the growth of neurons in the brain is "Lion's mane", also purchasable at I herb.

Great Cancer Preventative August 29, 2011 From Arizona This is a great Cancer preventative - I like Jarrow products.

Excellent June 29, 2011 From California This has eliminated IBS for me! I didn't have it that bad, but any amount of IBS is difficult. It started one night, I popped a curcumin, and it went away! I'm sold!!

Hopeful June 28, 2011 From Colorado I have Meniere's Disease. I look for natural anti-inflammatories. Taking this regularly in combination w/ginger root while maintaining a low salt diet seems to help.

Good for skin problems October 08, 2010 From Australia So far, so good. Taken half a bottle and it is already helping with a couple of my skin problems. Was told it was good for cysts as well, so I'm still waiting to see if it helps with that too.


This is a great antioxidant as well as anti-inflammatory. I would wake swollen and stiff all over. Since I’ve been taking curcumin, I am no longer dealing with those issues. Doctor's Best, High Absorption CoQ10,with Bioperine, 100 mg, 120 Veggie Caps (DRB-00188)

It's magic! November 13, 2008 By Robert Park From Great Britain My 96 year old friend Meg who is fit and lives by herself and is quite capable of managing all her domestic affairs started suffering from shoulder pain when in bed which disturbed her sleep. Her GP administered steroids which made her feel worse and only slightly mediated the shoulder pain. The medication started to destroy her finger nails (and what else that was unseen like her bones). On complaining about this the GP adminstered another drug to modify those side-effects but which itself possessed further serious side-effects! Guess who will write the death certificate if the treatment administered brought about Meg's demise? On my advice, she ceased taking the GP's prescription and started taking Q10 at 300 mgs daily in the morning. It gave her a eureka effect, stopped the shoulder pain, helped her to sleep more deeply and refreshingly, and perked-up her energy! She continues to be elated at feeling so good! Her nails since are showing signs of regrowth. All those in contact with her have noticed this remarkable change to her as she is now optimistic and buoyant and pain free! Truly, it's magic! 09/07/2010 As a sequel to the above; Meg's health has been fully restored and in a few days it will be her 98th birthday. She is fit, active, and bright as the button on a Warrant Officer's tunic. Her main occupation during the day is gardening, wheeling barrows, and when she thinks no one is around she climbs ladders to trim the ivy! She also drives 12 miles into the local village to do her shopping and takes her dog, a Norfolk terrier, for its twice daily exercise where she walks in the hilly countryside for a mile or more. She lives on her own. Since taking the Q10 her painful arms, which restricted movement, have healed and she also sleeps soundly. Her nails too have fully regrown and the colour of her flesh, which was purple when on steroids, has become white. She has since reduced the dosage level as she found she had too much energy on the 300 mgs. She is now down to 60 mgs daily which she feels is the right dosage for her needs. To those who have not felt any benefit from Q10 supplementation, it could be that their bodies do not require it; the young would not require it unless ill, but, alternatively, it could be that their dosage is insufficient. It is worth experimenting with the dosage level. This substance appears a benign and seems neither toxic nor addictive. I have been taking it for 20 years. I started taking it at 90 mgs daily after having had a quadruple by-pass in 1990 and have been off medication since and now reaching my 80th birthday I am in excellent fettle with no aches nor pains and still retain my libido. I would suggest that it is an excellent substance for those who have passed middle age or who suffer from an illness.

Helping my gums and cavities June 13, 2009 From Tennessee When I take Co10100 it really helps my gums and teeth


Q10 review February 21, 2010 From New Zealand The purpose for purchasing this product was to find out if the claims were true - that it does lower blood pressure. I have normal blood pressure, but my 84 year old mother has high blood pressure. We are both taking 200mgs per day (for me, a temporary test). I lowered my blood pressure (consistently) to 106 over 68 considerably lower than what is normal for me which proved it works. My mothers blood pressure is lowering and doesn't seem to be having any side-affects with Q10 on top of Metaprolol and Cilazapril. She averaged one angina attack per week previously and since taking Q10 has had one attack in 6 weeks. It is still early days, but our intention is to be able to reduce, or ideally, take her off one or both of the prescription drugs she is on. At this point I rate this product highly, but it is only 6 weeks and I am ever watchful of changes in her. May I suggest that iherb email me in 3 months for an update.

Mike Brodle May 11, 2008 From Washington This is a great product.I use about 8 tablets a day and it eliminates those little heart pains I used to get at night when I ate or drank before going to bed. And it keeps my limbs from going to sleep from lack of blood. Wouldn't be without it!Now I need to get my diet scrutinized a bit more too !! Mike B

GREAT FOR ENERGY February 03, 2010 From Australia Have always found the Doctor's Best a good brand for CoQ10, as I tried another brand and noticed the difference. Great product.

Many people associate CoQ10 with cognitive function and after reading these reviews I just had to try it. Primarily it helps me with the speed in which I can recall information. Very helpful when writing a book like this. There could potentially be a multitude of benefits.

Love it! February 10, 2010 From California At 60 years old, my skin is beginning to age. I've been taking this product for 2 months and absolutely love it. My hands have taken on a more youthful look, no age spots and the skin looks thicker. My facial complexion is now evenly toned and pores smaller. I don't mind going without makeup now! Unfortunately, it hasn't helped with beginning facial sag yet, but I'm still hoping. Wish I had found this years ago.

Love Love this! July 24, 2011 By taniana WOW i've been using the collagen for 2 months now and the results are amazing: Tighter all over body, stronger muscles, more energy, thicker plumper skin, healthier hair and nails!! i'm sure within a couple more months results will be even better! A keeper.

STUFF REALLY WORKS July 20, 2011 From Canada Was bought especially for my knees - the creaking has stopped and a bonus my hair is getting thicker and longer.


Fabulous!! July 15, 2011 From Kansas This was recommended to me by a holistic doctor. I love this product--my skin looks healthier and my face requires fewer creams/products. I have both adult acne and rosacea, and this product helps keep my skin calm with the added benefit of not being topical (I don't respond well to most of those).

Awesome enough to recommend May 25, 2011 From Florida My personal trainer recommended these supplements. I was very skeptical at first. I've been taking them for wks now, and I'm amazed. My joints don't ache as much..my skin is evening out...to the point people have been complementing my skin WITHOUT makeup on. I can't wait to see the FULL benefits as time passes. I've been telling friends, coworkers, and relatives about these pills. I HIGHLY recommend these, and will Order again. The shipping was very, very fast. I was shocked.

About 2 years ago, I noticed that my lips were thinning. I was one of those people that feel the need to lick their lips all the time. Well, no more of that. Just weeks after taking the product, my pout was fuller. No more dry lips or skin either!

Another EFA June 29, 2010 From Kentucky Can't use soy because of thyroid problems, this is a great product.


Excellent alternative to soy August 01, 2010 From California Good to know that thre's an alternative to getting lecithin and Phosphatidylcholine without using soy. ESPECIALLY GMO-soy which is nearly all soy products.

Excellent product October 06, 2010 From Puerto Rico Phosphatidyl choline on lecithin lower bad LDL cholesterol and improve HDL. Needed for good lipid health and prevent oxidation.

better lecithin October 22, 2010 From Alabama I have been taking soy lecithin for many years, but I think this is better. I believe it is good for your liver and your brain.

Great Product December 07, 2010 From California Lecithin is so important to take and this product is a wonderful value. Wouldn't be without it!

This is one of those products that when you take it, how are you supposed to know if it is helping you or not? It’s another great antioxidant and protects your cells from oxidation. It’s low cost has kept it in my diet. In conclusion: Please do what is right for you. Of course if you drink and smoke cigarettes it will have negative effects on the way that your body functions as well as how it looks. I’m a wine drinker and when I have a few glasses I notice that my skin is a little dryer the next day. It also seems to interfere with my sleep. However, I love red wine and truly believe that it aids in keeping me sane. I mean this as a joke; hopefully you at least grinned and understand what I mean. I’ve never been a cigarette smoker as I’ve had enough health issues without adding more. If you smoke, I mean no disrespect, but you truly must realize what you are doing to your body. Just as I realize that my skin won’t look as nice the next day after I drink wine. Be as good to yourself as you can be. The rewards are numerous.
