Review: Buddha's Herb's offers a One A Day Mega Omega supplement that is both body effective and cost effective.

5/5 stars - Highly Recommended!

Over the years I have tried to consolidate my supplements. Seriously, how many pills per day can one woman take? And then you have hubby, who hates taking pills, so needs the most bang for the buck in the few pills he will take.

We both have high cholesterol and some joint degeneration, so our physicians have been prescribing us fish oil for the past decade or more. The problem with most fish oil supplements is the low levels of Omega 3 EPA+DHA in each capsule. We would end up taking 4 per day just to meet the prescribed dosage. HighDoseOil

So when Buddha's Herbs contacted me about doing a review of their supplements and service, I chose their One A Day Mega Omega, which offers 700 mg EPA+DHA per capsule. Hubby and I take two and that meets our mega-dose requirements.

The capsules are smaller than many drugstore fish oils of lower potency, there is no fishy odor, and they do not add lemon to cover the smell, so this is safe to give to your pets. They do offer a standard fish oil product as well.

At a regular price of $23.29 per 200 capsules, Buddha's Herbs One A Day Mega Omega is a bargain! Plus there are always sales happening. According to Buddha's Herbs,

We only use the highest quality raw materials available and our potencies are selected by taking into consideration the clinical tests and are thus backed by scientific research. All the Dietary Supplements completely comply with 21 CFR part 3 regulations for Good Manufacturing Practices and all the production process is fully documented. Independent Testing for efficacy, purity and disintegration is done on all the Batches by taking representative samples and Certificate of Analysis of each product is verified.

Safe and effective! And service was smooth and friendly.

Health Review: Herbalogic Chinese Herb Drops

Herbalogic produces and sells Chinese herb drops in formulations designed to ease allergies, back pain, stress, and insomnia, among others. They taste fine and work as promised!

5/5 Stars

I am a firm believer in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Nothing has helped me feel better more than my regular acupuncture and cupping treatments at City Acupuncture (especially since I can go Sunday morning and relax all day after), and my yin-strengthening Chinese herbal tablets.

So I was pretty excited when the folks at Herbalogic contacted me to try some of their Chinese Herb Drops. I requested Easy Breather, which is geared towards folks with seasonal allergies and sinus issues, and Back In Action, which helps with minor muscle and back pain after exercise, and chronic minor pain from arthritis.

Herbalogic was founded by two Austin, TX-based acupuncturists after they complete their training at Chengdu University. The supplements are made from herbs sourced directly from small farmers in China, except for the American Ginseng. The herbs are in a base of water, alcohol, and glycerin. You simply shake the bottle and put some drops into room temperature water to drink 1-3 times a day. That's it!

The formulas are no joke. Easy Breather contains many fruits and budding flowers, as well as cicada moult (yes, you read correctly - the chitin skeleton left when the cicada nymph moults) which, according to my acupuncturist, has a cooling, soothing, anti-inflammatory effect.

I recently started suffering from bad seasonal allergies, which only become manageable with steroid nasal spray, anti-histamine, and pseudo-ephedrine (decongestant). With the Easy Breather I seem to be able to go longer periods before needing any pills, so that is worth a lot.

Back In Action contains, among its over twenty herbs, flowers, and roots, deer antler, which helps nourish and protect our bones, blood, and joints, as well as many cooling, anti-inflammatory ingredients.

Like most people, fitness professionals included, I have occasional flare ups of old injuries that leave me in some muscle pain. And, frankly, I usually take naproxyn for that (generic Aleve). Back In Action works as well, and about as quickly, with much less stomach irritation.

Both of these formulas are very Yin (sweet, cooling), since us folks who tend to suffer from inflammatory symptoms are typically very Yang. I can easily tolerate the taste, but for some it may take some getting used to.

Have you tried TCM? Has it worked for you? Tell me about it!
