  • Product Name: Derma E Scalp Relief Shampoo, Provitamin B5 & Botanicals, 236ml

    1.6/10 Not what I'd hoped. Back to square one.

    Effectiveness: 1/10
    Value:7/10


    (+) Foams and distributes through hair nicely.
    (-)  Not Effective,Made scalp condition worse.

    How did you use it?: Not Applicable

    "I have seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp, and have been using honey to clean my hair as even sulfate-free shampoos cause my scalp to welt up, have painful sores, crust, scab, and peel. Using the honey has eradicated all symptoms except some scalp peeling, although it is messy and time consuming. I thought that a shampoo both sulfate and lauryl free would be the more convenient answer. Unfortunately, with each wash with this shampoo, my scalp health has deteriorated and now after 3 weeks of use every-other-day, the welts, crusting, painful sores, and huge flakes and peels are back. I will have to stop it's use immediately and go back to honey. It will take at least a month for my scalp to recover. Honey is inconvenient and messy, but it takes away the sores and pain."

  • Product Name: NFH Recovery SAP (Refrigerated), 30 Capsules

    9.1/10 I've been able to drop other probiotics

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Value:10/10


    (+) Easy To Take,Good Value,Reduced My Pain

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "I have IBS and Anxiety disorder. I started taking this for the 2 psychobiotic strains in it that are effective for anxiety. Well, it hasn't done anything for my anxiety, BUT, I've been able to drop the Jamieson and Align probiotics completely. No more gut pain and cramping!

    There are such high levels of probiotics in this product, and it costs the same as Align while being so much more effective. I love the enteric coating."

  • Product Name: Thorne Vitamin D/K2 Liquid, 30ml

    10/10 Only one I use

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:10/10


    (+) D3/K2 combination essential.

    How did you use it?: Everyday

    "I had low Vitamin D. So I had to start taking Vitamin D. My doctor didn't know the difference between K1 and K2, but I knew from reading up on it. K1 is involved in blood coagulation, but K2 takes the calcium increase in your body from the D3 supplementation, and diverts to the bones and teeth where it's needed. So just taking Vitamin D on it's own isn't half as helpful as taking it with K2. And D3 is the best form of vitamin D.

    I'm allergic to the Ragweed plant family, and other Vitamin D/K2 drops combinations use sunflower or safflower oil, so I'm allergic to them. This one is fine. I'm not allergic to it. And drop form is great - it's so much more convenient that adding yet another pill to my regime.

    Last year's blood test showed that I was almost at normal levels of Vitamin D, so this definitely works. I've added another drop for a total of 5 drops (2500IU) and that should get me up to normal with no trouble."

  • Product Name: NOW 5-HTP 100mg

    9.9/10 Excellent. Saved Life; Literally.

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take,Quickens Recovery Time,Works quickly - 4 days.

    How did you use it?: Every Morning

    "Was taking medication 2 years, taken off because genetic tests showed it was harmful to me. No withdrawal (weaned carefully) but month later, suicidal depression! WoW! Didn't know what to do for 3 weeks. Brain injury caused by medication desperately made me want to kill myself. I've never felt anything like it.
    Then found several reputable studies showing 300mg/day 5-HTP as effective as Prozac but no side effects. So I copied. In 4 days depression completely GONE. Have tried other brand but enteric coating prevented intestinal absorption; pill passed right through, untouched. No enteric coating on this makes it easy to absorb. And NOW brand very open about testing: they have their own lab. Ask and you get any answer you want without hassle.

    I have Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome and get bad + rare side effects to everything pharmaceutical. Tons of food allergies. But no side effects or allergens to this! So grateful!"

  • Product Name: Allmax Taurine

    6.3/10 Product OK, TERRIBLE company

    Effectiveness: 6/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) 

    How did you use it?: Before Bed

    "From February to end of April tried to find out about how Allmax test China sourced Taurine pwdr for purity. Like pulling teeth! So RUDE + SUSPICIOUS! I emailed, called, told I'd get answers, months go by, no answer. I hate to bug, but I put this in my body!

    "Gurda"(?) accuse of being spy, interviewer. Call ignorant of testing process. Say any China manufacturer found guilty of impurity killed after finding. I believe in PREVENTION! He say China not do bad things for a decade: CBC Marketplace exposée last month-ONGOING selling of 100% cadmium children's jewelry from China. Pet die melamine poisoning from China ingred' pet food, HAVE to ask!

    Took 15 MIN to get info on what they test for. Not 4 melamine, but not bad testing. Says over 99.9% pure. Why not give me this info at start instead of INSULTS? Other companies just tell you openly.

    I bought because of larger container size. I have to trust it's 99.9% pure Taurine Will use again GRUDGINGLY. Allmax Product OK, people TERRIBLE."
