Here are two products I have had the opportunity to try (and the wife helped this time) and am reviewing for you all today. Both products come from Schwartz Bioresearch – which provides a good quality product and stand well behind what they provide to their customers.
Organic Coconut Oil: The bottle reads “Cold Pressed & Unrefined” “Pure Extra Virgin” and is 2000mg. The product label also says that this has no added flavors or sweeteners – has no non-GMO ingredients, pure and solvent free, abundant in MCT’s, it is made in the USA and has been tested by a third party.
First I must say that I like the fact that the product seems pure to its makeup with no extra added ‘stuff’ that we don’t need to add to our body. I also appreciate that it is made in the USA – did you know a lot of health products are not which to me allows for a lot of weak and dangerous ingredients the opportunity to be added without our knowledge. I also stress that I always buy items first that are made in the US.
If you are asking what does coconut oil do or why should I take it here is the answer. Coconut oil is high in natural saturated fats. Saturated fats not only increase the healthy cholesterol (known as HDL) in your body, but also help to convert the LDL “bad” cholesterol into good cholesterol. By Increasing the HDL’s in the body, it helps promote heart health, and lower the risk of heart disease. In short, it helps your body create good fat and helps convert bad fats.
Before I go on, I must add that you should consult with a health care professional before starting any product to make sure it is a right fit for you and does not have any negative impact on medications you might be taking.
I have taken this product for a few days and will continue until I have blood work done at the end of January. I consulted with my Dr. to make sure it was fine to take and was given the go ahead. On my last blood work I had a mild elevation so I will see what happens then and do an update to this post. One thing I want to say is that when first opening the bottle I did not smell a terrible smell – I have taken supplements before that I had a hard time with because of the smell – but no worries here at all.
Fast Acting Women’s Growth & Shine Hair Formula With Biotin: (The wife did this review) The box reads “Luxurious Hair Starts From Within” “Specifically formulated for women, Accredited third party tested, Natural and non-GMO ingredients, 100% allergen and gluten free and Made in the USA”
Hi, I normally do not test the products but was excited to do this one! When the hubby presented me with a box and said I need you to try these I was a little taken back. After reading the box and reading more online my interest was peeked. As I have grown older my hair is getting weak and split ends happen more and more. I was going to take the product with the hope that I would see improvement.
I have only taken this product for about ten days. I personally had not seen any improvement – but when do we see good happening to ourselves right? I had one cashier tell me that my hair had a nice shine and asked what I used. Nothing different!?! The hubby also said that my hair feels smoother. Wait – does that mean he thought my hair felt like straw before?
I wanted to wait to do the review until after I got a thinning out of my hair and hair cut to remove my damaged and split ends…. ugh! 40’s suck! I went to my usual appointment with my usual hair stylist. I have gone to her for about five years now. She washed my hair and asked if I minded any product being added. Then she stopped me and said – never mind you really don’t need anything added. She said my hair had a nice bounce and felt very nice. She asked if I had started using any different products – Nope!
I am going to use the product for the next couple of months and will let you know how I think the product has helped with an update then.
