Hi everyone, Thanks for stepping by. I like shopping at iherb for almost everything I need from vitamins to shampoo. All products I've reviewed contain only natural ingredients. I hope my reviews are helpful to you. iHerb carries products I can't buy locally or which are sold in The Netherlands (Europe) at 3-5 times higher price. Shipping all over the world at low shipping rates. I hope you enjoy shopping at iHerb as much as I do. Greetz, Maria

I use Magnesium Malate for more than 10 years now to relieve pain, cramps and migrain. During the last 5 years I use Source Naturals Magnesium Malate. I ordered Nature's Life to save money. Three tablets Source Naturals contain 425 mg Magnesium and 2500 mg Malic Acid. Two tablets Nature's Life contain 400 mg Magnesium and 1920 mg Malic acid. The amount Magnesium is about the same, the Malic Acid is about 20 % less. Thursday morning I took the first dosage Nature's Life, unfortunately Saturday morning I woke up with a lot of pain. After taking a few double dosages Source Naturals I felt normal again. In the Dr. Oz show I saw a test how to solve a tablet. I had to use the microwave a few times to achieve the right temperature. The Source Naturals tablet was solved within 10 minutes, the Nature's Life tablet was still not solved after 12 hours. That could explain why it is not effective. I keep using Source Naturals Magnesium Malate for the rest of my life. Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.

Unscented facial creme, non-greasy, 100 % natural and just perfect for my skin. My very sensitive skin changes the whole year round. From oily to mixed, from dry to very dry. I tried all types of facial care but nothing felt even good. I am so happy with Aroma Naturals, it feels really great. Moisturizing and nourishing were needed, the oily parts are not even shiny. I have this one and the Amazing E creme. I use the Soft Whipped creme in the summer, the Amazing creme would be great for the winter. The content is 2 to 3 times more than 'normal'. I think 1 Soft Whipped and 1 Amazing creme are enough for 1 year. I already reordered. Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.

For years now I use chemical Cox-2 inhibitors. Despite the high dose of Etoricoxib my sedimentation rate is always too high. My homeopath advised me to try Turmeric. After a few weeks I feel much better, less pain. When my sedimentation rate is good it may be possible to lower the dose of Etoricoxib. Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.

my skin felt really dry and itchy after using this Bath & Body Wash for only 2 days. I was looking for a Fragrance Free and affordable Body Wash. This one seems wonderful, 'Soothing benefit to dry, itchy, sensitive skin, leaving skin softer and smoother'. The Body Wash is almost colorless and smells like Cocamidopropyl Betaine (one of the foaming ingredients) so I doubt the active amount of Oatmeal and Herbs. The ingredient Phenoxytol (Green Tea) is Phenoxyethanol wich can irritate the skin. I contacted RR and asked them why they call it Phenoxytol (Green Tea) but got no answer to my question. They only told me they use high quality ingredients. Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.

L-Theanine is used for pets in case of excessive barking, anxiety, fear, bad listening etc. When I buy L-Theanine for dogs in Holland it will cost me about 40 dollars a month ! I saved a lot of money buying Doctor's Best L-Theanine at iHerb. After 7 months of using I can get my dog's attention when she is barking, she listens better and has no fear of thunder, lightning and even fireworks anymore. She also has much more self-confidence. That's a result of training but without L-Theanine it was not possible to train. I'm very happy with the results and surprised it's so effective. Before using I did not believe it could work but I was wrong !! Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.

Guaranteed no-nano sunscreen. I like the fact it's unscented. It's not greasy, absorbs easily and doesn't leave white traces. It leaves your skin a bit chalky to the touch. I will reorder for sure. Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.

I don't like scrubs with salt, sugar or (Jojoba) beads. My favorite bodyscrub (Dutch brand) with crushed berries as scrub particles was discontinued. I had my doubts about this one, was it really possible to scrub with vulcanic pumice ? I had to order to find out. It feels Oh-So-Great ! Nice and gentle but also exfoliating and cleansing. Just perfect for my dry and very sensitive skin. It's really the best scrub I ever used. Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.

but Solgar was discontinued. Jarrow and Life Extension have also Se-Methyl-Selenocysteine. Jarrow only has a formula with this form of Selenium. Life Extension uses Sodium Selenite in lots of their products. This is not organically bound and will be absorbed poorly. I don't trust companies using Sodium Selenite. So back to L-selenomethionine. I took Carlson because of the low weight. The capsules are small so easy to take. Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.

Farmaceutical grade fishoil very high in EPA/DHA fatty acids, you only need 1 softgel. Our diets are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids and have excessive amounts of omega-6 fatty acids. Healthy ratio omega-6 : omega-3 intake is about 2-4 : 1, actual intake is 15 : 1 and higher! Excessive amounts of omega-6 and polyunsaturated fatty acids can cause serious health problems. Omega-3 supplements can be effective to prevent or in case of heart disease, high bloodpressure, diabetes, migraine, joint pain, mental disorders, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and many more. For me Omega-3 works well for migraine and joint pain. I switched from Natural Factors softgels to enteric coated softgels because of fishburps.Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.
