Did feel the nourishing effect on the kidneys. Supposed to be an aphrodisiac as well. Bought it for the hair blackening effect it claims to have. Jury's still out on that one as it's too early to tell. In TCM, hairs are the reflection on the state of health of the kidneys, so fingers crossed with the nourishing effect I felt on my kidney will eventually help in my graying hairs. Did seem to notice less hair fall on the drain cover at shower! They should change the name to He Shou Wu instead because that's what it is and Fo Ti doesn't exisit in TCM.

This product works great and in good combination of herbs that boosts the immune system and a great tonic for the adrenals. Also great as a pre-workout supplement. Like it that this product is in concentrated form and this company doesn't use fillers and flow agent in their supplements. Update: I'm on my third bottle but this time the capsules' content seemed to clump together. I think some mositure had seeped intot the cellulose capsules. I think that's the "downside" of not having fillers and excipient (magnesium stearate), which to me it's fine. I just cut open and dissolve it in hot water (hot water activates the herbs anyway) and drink it. It's bitter but bearable.

I used this for liver detox. Worked very well the first time around. I took two caps before sleep and woke up feeling light and refreshed, a sign that the liver is functioning well. But then I stopped for a while, fearing that i might be consuming too much Selenium and Molybdenum. Recently, I bought another bottle as I thought I needed another detox. This time around, I felt very little effect , and the powder inside the caps are not so powdery white as before, a bit off white in color. I'm not sure what happened but I'm slightly disappointed. By the way I've tried other brands of NAC, none had the effect that I had with the first batch of Doctor's Best product. I believe the Molybdenum in this product produces a synergistic effect with NAC, as it's involved in Phase II Liver Detox, but I am not feeling it with the current batch.

The quality of this astragalus is excellent. Best effect when taken on an empty stomach in the morning with warm water before breakfast. Its therapeutic effects is felt half an hour later. Good for the immune system and general well-being.

A convenient way to add electrolytes to water. Taste great.

I don't understand why people would complain about the taste, I drink it neat with just water and don't bother with juices or blending fruits with it and it tastes great if a bit sweet. I have a pack of black sesame powder and I mix them up and it adds a little nutty taste to the drink. Great alternative to whey which I was trying to steer away. Glad I found this combination of Spirulina and Chorella with the base protein which makes it convenient for me. Reason it's not getting five stars is price is a little steep for 15 servings canister.

It seemed to work great for the first few days but after a week, found my skin tight and dry as it's stripping too much oils from my skin and my skin was flaking. I have had this happened to me when I used harsh cleanser. Maybe it works for really oily/teenagey skin. It's not for me. I've used the rest on my hair when I used hair products, washed out really well but I still need to use conditioner for my hair as it cleanses really well, sort of squeky clean feel to it which ultimately will dry out the hair. Not recommended.

A really fresh smelling drink and energizing too without the jittery feeling one gets from drinking coffee. I got this at local store that costs double and weighs half each bag of what you get from this brand. So really value for money from iherb!!!

Had bought two types of protein bar from this company. The Chocolate Brownie and the White Chocolate Raspberry ones. While the Chocolate Brownie one is so chewy that my jaw hurts, this one is just the right texture and taste, a pleasure to eat. It has a little grit to it due to pulverized raspberry seeds (similar to the grit I got when I blend frozen raspberry with my protein shake) . Other than that, it's great.

This seems to be very effective in preventing cold and strengthen the immune systems. Reduces the symptoms of flu and cough. With the onset of flu, take 2 tablets combined with a Vit. C fizzy tablets, and you'll be fine. Price a little steep so will use sparingly.
