    9/10 Great product

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "A simple, clean powdered protein, suitable for vegetarians. The pea protein is hypoallergenic and this one isn't loaded with all kinds of additives. I make a shake with it in a shaker cup and it mixes up just fine. No noticeable flavour that I can detect, so I don't mind the unflavoured one. Prefer that to something with added sweeteners and flavourings, it's easy to add your own flavour. I always feel the boost from the protein."

I don't take it daily, only 1-2X per week, and always feel it gives me the boost I need, while being easy on my system in every way. Highly recommend it. Not a lot of extra ingredients in the shell, which is vegetarian -- another bonus."

    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,Good Value

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "I love this product! As a vegetarian, I've been concerned about getting enough omega-3s and have also had some issues with brain fog. This product made a difference to my energy levels and mental clarity within a couple of days (I was probably really low on omega-3s). It's an easy-to-swallow vegetarian gel cap, and I've had zero issues with this -- all benefits, no problems at all. Smooth sailing in every way. Comes across as very clean and high quality. So glad I found this. It's so worth trying if you think you might be low on omega-3s and want a vegetarian product. Great value for what it delivers. Highly recommended."

  • Product Name: Salus Gallexier Herbal Bitters

    9/10 Great product

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value,Mixes Well,Quickens Recovery Time,Tastes Great,It works!
    (-) Just needs to be stored in the fridge after opening

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "This product works, plain and simple. It's helped me with digestion issues (feeling bloated and tired after meals). And I use half the recommended dose and it still helps. I really like that if I forget to take it before a meal, I can take it after a meal and it will still be effective within a few minutes. Another bonus is there's no alcohol in this (which is why it needs to be kept in the fridge after opening). The taste is pleasant, but even if you don't like it, it's no big deal, I dilute it with a little water and take it like a shot. It comes with a handy little cup with measurements on the side. Definitely a high quality, effective product that does what it claims to do. Very easy on the stomach (for me). My energy levels have improved so much after using this product. Highly recommended."

  • Product Name: Trophic Manganese (Chelazome), 90 Caplets

    9/10 A great product

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "I need to take extra zinc in the mornings, and so I've added manganese with my dinner to balance that out. These tablets are easy to take, they're fairly small...but I found they're actually chewable. So I usually chew them, even though they're not flavoured (I don't mind the taste, just a little tangy, which I actually like). Somehow I feel more balanced and calm after I take them. I think they're also helping to stabilize my blood sugar. I just started to feel more on an even keel after I started taking these.

    Trophic products are simple (not a lot of additives), good quality and good value. They just deliver what they say they will in an easy-to-take, affordable product. A really trustworthy brand, in my experience over the years. And this manganese products is just typical of Trophic's standards, quality and value.

    If you need extra manganese for any reason, I highly recommend this one."

  • Product Name: AOR Advanced B Complex, 602mg

    9.9/10 A great product -- really helps!

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,Good Value,Quickens Recovery Time

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "This B complex really works for me. Usually I take one capsule 3 times a day, for a total of three a day. But if I'm going through additional stress, I will increase the dose. It seems to absorb and get into my system really well, and I notice it if I don't take it for awhile. So I find it best to just make it part of my regular routine and adjust the dose according to need.

    It can be really expensive in the stores, so I'm very grateful that Vitamart carries this at a more affordable price, since it's a staple in my life.

    To me, this is just a basic part of my health regimen, making sure I get enough Vit B and AOR has figured out the balance, so I don't have to. It's effective and good value and great quality. What more could you ask?"

  • Product Name: SISU Ester-C Powder with Citrus Bioflavonoids, 125g

    9/10 A great product

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value,Mixes Well,Quickens Recovery Time

    How did you use it?: Before Bed,Every Morning

    "Something about this Vit C product is just right for me. I need a lot of extra Vit C, partly just because that's how my body works, and also partly because of recovery from various things. This product really helps me keep up with my body's Vit. C needs.

    I think the powder form helps the Vit. C absorb better into my system. It's also easy to vary the amount because it's in powder form. Sometimes I take it by putting some on a spoon and just popping it in my mouth (It's got a tangy Vit C flavour which I don't mind even in the unflavoured version) or it's easy to add to a drink and mix it in. I even use with on my skin to help with scar healing (I add some of the powder to olive oil or Vit E and make a paste and apply to the skin and cover, great for scar healing, once the skin has closed).

    Effective, good quality, lots of options on how to take it. And I find a single bottle actually lasts a long time, so good value, too."

  • Product Name: Trophic Vitamin E Liquid

    9.9/10 Very handy product

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take,Good Value,Mixes Well,Quickens Recovery Time

    How did you use it?: Everyday,Before Bed

    "I use the liquid Vit E for skin -- either just for softening hands or face or lips, especially after working in the garden or being out in the sun. Also nice to apply before going outside on a cold, winter's day as a bit of face protection. I also use this for any cuts/abrasions, on closed skin only, to help prevent scarring.

    The liquid dropper makes this really super convenient to apply, just as much as I need and where I want it, rather than dealing with Vit E capsules and cutting them open, which is so messy and awkward.

    My favourite Vit E product! It's a staple in my house and wherever I go. Love that there are no additives, it just is what it is."

  • Product Name: St. Francis Canadian Bitters

    9.9/10 Really effective

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value,Mixes Well,Quickens Recovery Time

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "I took this product to help with a digestive problems, as I'd taken enzymes and probiotics, but they didn't seem to do much for me and my particular problem. This product made a very noticeable difference the first time I took it -- I didn't get the after-eating slump from my body struggling to digest a meal. Instead I felt lighter and more energized.

    The only challenge for me is to remember to take it 10-15 minutes before a meal...but I found that even if I took it with a meal, or even after a meal, it still seemed to help.

    It's got that great bitter taste, which I don't mind at all, but some people might not like. Just put it in a shot glass with a little water and slug it back. No biggie. It's worth it because it WORKS.

    I don't seem to need it on a regular basis anymore, but it's nice to have around to take now and again, when I feel the need. A real boost."

    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value,Quickens Recovery Time

    How did you use it?: Every Morning

    "I've taken other zinc supplements, but this one really seems to absorb better than the others, since it's a picolinate. It's effective, but gentle. Really great for colds/flus -- helps turn things around very quickly for me. Also helps me with a chronic problem I have that means I have to supplement with zinc every day (which means I also take manganese later in the day to balance out the extra zinc I take in the mornings). A great product, a real staple in my supplement regimen."

    How did you use it?: Everyday,Before Bed

    "I take this product for various reasons, one to help with muscle injuries and spasms. I noticed a calming of muscle tension and spasms with the first dose (two capsules). I've also been taking it before bed (2-3 capsules) and find that within about an hour (give or take), it helps me feel sleepy and fall asleep. Always works. I notice the difference when I don't take it. The capsules are a bit large, but they go down smoothly, have never had any trouble with that."

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "I began taking this product to help with chronic inflammation from a rib injury. It was so difficult to get the inflammation to subside as ordinary daily activity would trigger it. Taking this product made a big difference in calming the inflammation (I take 2 a day) so I can go about my daily activities without triggering more inflammation. And if something does trigger inflammation, this calms it down again. Results are noticeable within a day or two (combined with my being sensible and being mindful of not aggravating the inflammation through activity)."

    "I take this B1 product with every meal and it's helped improve my digestion. Definitely a noticeable difference for me and the things I'm dealing with. And I also notice the difference when I don't take it. My body definitely misses it. So this is a good product for me. It's small, easy to take and effective."

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "Someone recommended this product to me for some bad bronchitis I was having. I couldn't believe it, I felt the difference after just one dose. Like it was actually dissolving the mucous in my lungs! Of course, as I got better, the benefit wasn't so dramatic. But I now take one a day along with my multi-vitamin just to help my lungs stay healthy (and keeping in mind we're all breathing polluted air daily). Handy to have in case you're ever exposed to something, eg., during home renos -- of course, best to wear the proper mask if doing home renos or something, but this makes for a nice back-up plan if you weren't prepared and want to make sure your lungs have a better chance at coping with whatever got breathed in. This really helps. Great product. So glad I know about it."

    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take,Good Value,Quickens Recovery Time,It really works. It's not a quick boost of energy and then a crash. It's truly helping re-build worn out adrenals and improve their health and well-being. Takes time to see results, but worth it.

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "Great product. It works. It takes time because this isn't a quick fix that ends up just masking the problem. This is genuinely re-building worn out adrenals so they heal and recover. Part of my daily regime now."
