  • Product Name: Purica Fiberlicious, Powder

    9.8/10 Regular

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:8/10


    (+) First Dose Results,Mixes Well

    How did you use it?: Before Bed

    "I’m a fan of Purica products and I’ve been looking for ways for a flatter stomach and fibre comes up as an essential for the pursuit.

    Note that Benefibre’s main ingredient is wheat- dextrin, Metamucil’s is psyllium and Fiberlicios’ is Inulin.

    I take half a teaspoon mixed with a 1/2 a 1 cup of water before bed, the fibre dissolves easily and is mostly flavourless. Just to be sure I get all the product after I finish the cup of water I add more water and drink some more. It does work with clearing out the system (don’t worry not while sleeping and I don’t have to run to the washroom when I first get up in the morning). As for if it’s flattened my stomach, tough to say if it’s a direct result of taking Fibrelicious because I have also been working out."

  • Product Name: Green Beaver Mineral Sunscreen Lip Balm SPF 15

    8.4/10 Not what I hoped for

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:3/10


    (+) Convenient,Spf
    (-) Doesn’t come on smoothly

    How did you use it?: Not Applicable

    "The mint smells great and I purchased because of it’s natural ingredient and because of the SPF content.

    There is something in lip products that I may be allergic to (in that I get the opposite reaction - instead of moisturizing/ protecting my lips, my lips gets chapped and red). I do not know what the ingredient is that causes my lips to react so I continue to purchase chapstick/ lip balm in my pursuit of finding one that is suitable for my lips. I was hoping that this product, being “natural” would be good, but sadly my lips reacted the same way, dry and red. Others who purchase this product may not react the same way (as mentioned, there is some ingredient that I react to/ am allergic to).

    Aside from that, I do not like that this lip balm does not go on smoothly. It sort of leaves lumps (of the product) on my lips. However, the lumps can be rubbed off/ in.

    For the price, even if my lips agreed with the ingredients, I likely would not buy this product again."

    7.9/10 Guilt free snack

    Effectiveness: 8/10
    Value:7/10


    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take,Tastes Great

    How did you use it?: Between Meals

    "These fava beans have a great crunch and I really like the mesquite flavour (I haven’t tried all the other flavours). They’re high in protein so they feel like a guilt free snack while also tasting good. The packaging is resealable (not that I often need it as I usually polish off a pack in one snacking). I’ve bought this product in the mesquite flavour on more than one occasion (I often buy the box)."

    "I bought the mint flavour but all I tasted was bitter chocolate. I would eat a square as an after dinner treat. I bought this chocolate for the antioxidant benefits but I have had better tasting dark chocolate."

  • Product Name: Westcoast Naturals Joint-Q

    8.2/10 Good for skin too

    Effectiveness: 8/10
    Value:10/10


    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take,Good Value

    How did you use it?: Everyday,Every Morning

    "I purchased this product because I read that the combination of the ingredients are most effective for joints and connective tissue like building collagen (firm skin - less wrinkles). Also MSM is reportedly good for inflammation (and reducing acne). My joints have been feeling good as for my skin, I think it's too soon to tell if I look more youthful (I'm in my 30s) but since taking this supplement together with Garcinia cambogia I definitely have way less acne (and I'm thrilled).

    It's seems like an expensive product but again the combination of all of the necessary ingredients for maximum effectiveness makes this product a good value."

  • Product Name: Nature's Plus Animal Parade Kids Immune Booster, 90 Animal Shaped Tablets

    Effectiveness: 1/10
    Value:1/10


    (+) 
    (-)  Tastes Bad,Hard to chew

    How did you use it?: Every Morning

    "I bought this for my 9 year old. He said it tasted bad and I encouraged him to try it again and he did and still didn't like it. I then tried it and understood why he didn't like it. It tastes like garlic which is okay for me although I rather not chew garlic tablets and the tablets are very hard, I could barely bite into the tablet, I'm surprised he was able to (eventually). I ended up buying him gummy immune boost vitamins which taste like they're labelled and are effective (because they are being consumed by him)."

    "I have been trying in vain to grow my hair out. I stumbled upon gelatin by accident in one of my searches for hair growth but when I did more research I found that gelatin is also good for skin (increases collagen) and muscle/ tissue repair and is also said to aid in the repair of diastis recti (split abs). When I decide I want something I have to have it right away. The product was sold out on vitamart.ca so I went to my local health food store where they had it for $59. Since it was cheaper on Vitamart.ca I asked to be notified when it was back in stock (and ordered another bag). I mix one heaping teaspoon with my green tea everyone morning (it dissolves easily and is flavourless) with a teaspoon of MCT oil. I found after almost 2 months my stomach is leaner but other than that I haven't noticed any significant results. I will however continue taking the product as I understand it takes at least 3 months for a supplement to take full effect."

  • Product Name: Lorna Vanderhaeghe CYCLEsmart with 80mg Vitex (Formerly ESTROsmart Plus)

    9/10 Been using for a while - works for me

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Rids hormonal acne on chin
    (-) Have to take at least two a day to be effective.

    How did you use it?: Every Morning

    "I have been using EstroSmart with Vitex for a while now (maybe a year). I take two capsules a day. When I try to take one a day (to make the product last longer) within days of doing so I get acne on my chin so I'm back to two a day. I'm not sure what other effect it has on me otherwise but it definitely works on he hot,oral acne for me. I recommended the product to a friend and she personally found the EstroSmart without Vitex works better for her. I checked for this product at Community and it is by far cheaper on this website."
