Plastic lid of unknown quality, after thorough washing gives off chemical scent

Posted by NutritionArts on August 15 2013 | Verified Purchase

You get what you pay for. The innards are steel (good), but the cover contains plastic and silicone of unknown composition (no data on BPS, BPF, BPA, phtalates and temperature resistance). After thorough washing with detergent and triple rinsing, the mug gives off a chemical/industrial smell with hot liquids (e.g. herbal tea). Into the trash bin it goes. Not worth risking your health just to save a few dollars. Buy something 100% ceramic or 100% steel, with no plastic parts.

Petrolatum, Parabens... cocoa is an addition, not the main ingredient

Posted by NutritionArts on September 2 2012 | Verified Purchase

What a disappointment, should have read the ingredients. Contains: - Petrolatum (mineral jelly from petroleum) - Propylparaben (allergenic, pseudoestrogen, endocrine disruptorn, organ toxic) - Butylparaben (endocrine disruptor, pseudoestrogen, causes cellular level changes) Why would ANYBODY sane want to put this on their lips is beyond me. Off to the trash can it goes. Will NOT give this to anybody else to be used. Not even my enemies. Definitely NOT recommended.

The best marine phytoplankton on the market (?)

Posted by NutritionArts on June 6 2014 | Verified Purchase

This stuff tastes as it should be : very strong, sea-like and with the sea minerals intact (it is very salty). Also, the color is right, with deep dark green (almost blackish) color, instead of the clear color of UMA core. The effect is also very strong. Take this for a week on a recommended dosage and unless your body metabolism/balance is already superb, you will notice results. It is also strongly detoxifying for some conditions, so beware of potential Herxheimer reactions.

Really bad taste, may raise inflammation levels

Posted by NutritionArts on November 27 2013 | Verified Purchase

I have never had a problem with supplement taste, but this one is really difficult to drink. It tastes like drinking liquid asphalt or synthetic roof tar. Further, every time I take it, my inflammation markers go up, which means it is no really healthy for me. Going back to Sun Warrior Fulvic Acid, which is not the same, but at least it is pure, non-inflammatory for me and tolerable in taste.

Good combination, beware of Stevia

Posted by NutritionArts on March 31 2010 | Verified Purchase

Like it, except for the taste of stevia (natural sweetener). I'd prefer a mix without any additional sweetness as this is super sweet for my taste. Perhaps blends better with some other non-sweet powders.

Not enough lysine, need to take several caps over recommended dosage

Posted by NutritionArts on September 23 2014 | Verified Purchase

This could be a nice product. However, for people with high arginine intake (seeds, nuts, many vegan sources) and not using milk/egg products, this does not have enough L-Lysine. The main factor in HSV1 outbreaks is the arginine/lysine ratio. If there is too much arginine relative to lysine, an outbreak can occur. So, in order to take this, one has to take at least 4 capsules at a time to get enough lysine, spaced out during the day, 2-3 times. This makes it a 8 to 12 capsules dosage and the bottle lasts then 5-7 days. That's not enough. It's much cheaper to buy Lysine in powder free-form as Lysine HCL and just use that. I have personally tried to use this as a HSV1 outbreak preventive measurement during a test diet and it was not enough even at double the dosage.

Not very refined odour, smells like industrial cleaner

Posted by NutritionArts on May 28 2011 | Verified Purchase

Gives a good protection for me personally throughout the day, but the 'natura' Tea tree odour is not nearly as nice as the tea tree essential oils I've used for other purposes. This smells more like an industrial cleaner. Not a very refined smell to have on oneself. YMMV.

Good, not the best

Posted by NutritionArts on May 28 2011 | Verified Purchase

It's really difficult to accurately measure the efficacy of various goldenseal products, so take this with a grain of salt, but... This stuff is good, but doesn't seem to work with me as well as the Solgar Standardized potency Goldenseal product. I've used this in similar dosages (as per standardized potency alkaloids), but the efficacy for immunity during flu season does not seem to be as effective as the Solgar product. Granted, this is much cheaper, so one can easily muptiply the doasage by 1.5 and still end up paying less.

Didn't work for me - lactose intolerant / milk sensitive

Posted by NutritionArts on May 28 2011 | Verified Purchase

Will not rate this product, because can't really use it. I'm minor lactose intolerant (NO milk protein allergy) and can tolerate milk from some sources ok in small dosages. However, this product causes a lot of bloating, cramping and intestinal discomfort for me. So, if you have milk insensitivity issues, this might not be for you.

Does what citrus pectin should - good for controlling colon bacteria and biofilm issues.
