Recently I decided to go all out on my iHerb purchases- it was pretty epic, as you can see!
Though I have not had sufficient time to properly test out all the products, I do have a general idea of how they perform. Here goes…
I think maca powder is absolutely fabulous. Not only does it provide energy and help regulate hormones, it also has a unique, delicious malt flavour. Since using it I have noticed a small difference in my energy levels and the appearance of my skin, which is clearing itself after a bout of bad breakouts. Whether this is directly related to the inclusion of maca in my morning smoothie is hard to say, but I’m liking it anyway! Thumbs up! 👍
Despite the good reviews, I was a little doubtful of whether I would enjoy the taste and texture of this powder, probably because I thought nothing could even get close to the amazingness of the Amazing Meal Chocolate Infusion blend. I was proven wrong, however, upon trying it the first time. It was absolutely deeeeeelicious! What I love about this particular brand are the clean ingredients, lack of sugar, and high percentage of protein. It really helps keep my hunger at bay when included in my morning smoothie. Overall, big thumbs up! 👍
Ingredients: Proprietary protein blend (raw organic pea protein, raw cranberry protein, raw organic hemp seed protein), organic dutch cocoa, organic chocolate extract, organic vanilla extract, stevia, natural cherry extract, medium chain triglycerides, ancient sea salt, herbal (tea leaf) extract, natural fibers (fenugreek, konjac), natural citrus extract.
I could rave on about this product for days. But I think you get the jist if I just tell you I love it and can’t go without it and have it every single day in my morning smoothie 😛. Not only is it packed full of nutrients, it tastes freakin’ amazing! I have already done a full review of this product on my blog, so if you want any more info, go ahead and check it out! Massive thumbs up! 👍
I use cacao powder in many things, from smoothies to cookies and avacado chocolate mousse. I couldn’t be without it really! This particular product is organic, good-quality and also decent value. I have already purchased it several times. Thumbs up! 👍
After being introduced to this product by a friend, I was keen to get a hold of it. Although I like Spry chewing gum, mints have several advantages in that they dont upset the stomach (and possibly even lead to ulceration) or have to be spat out afterwards. These mints taste deliciously sweet and are very effective at freshening breath. The ingredients are also nice and clean in comparison to the majority of mints on the market. Thumbs up! 👍
Ingredients: Xylitol, calcium lactate, magnesium stearate, gum Arabic, natural peppermint oil, & beeswax (glazing agent).
Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to test out this product (I blame all the Easter chocolate). Going by the reviews, however, I’d say it sounds very promising! Pure maple syrup is a healthier choice of sweetner compared to regular sugar as it goes through less processing, contains many more minerals and nutrients, and is lower on the Glycemic Index. 👍
If you hadn’t guessed by now, I kind of have a thing for chocolate! I think I pretty much knocked this off in one sitting! Shameful, I know 😭 But let me tell you, it was so freakin’ scrumptious I could hardly resist! The crunchy toffee pieces and smoothness of the chocolate make it an absolute winner, plus I could feel slightly less guilty knowing it’s made from organic ingredients. Big thumbs up! 👍
Ingredients: Raw cane sugar**, cocoa liquor**, coconut toffee (sugar**, desiccated coconut**, butter*, sea salt), cocoa butter**, whole milk powder*, butterfat*.
*Organic **Organic and Fair Trade
Cocoa: 47% minimum
I bought these looking for a way to get my greens in on days when I don’t have my Amazing Grass powder. Turns I pretty much STILL have it every morning, even though I’m trying desperately to conserve it 😛. In spite of that, I do enjoy having these little capsules on-hand in case I want to up my greens intake. They’re easy to swallow and are packed full of nutrients, just like the powder. They also happen to be very reasonably-priced. Thumbs up! 👍
While I haven’t tested this out in anything I’ve made, I did put a little drop on my finger to have a taste. It’s very sweet (as you’d expect) and has a pleasant but mild chocolate flavour. I’m looking forward to using this in drinks and raw desserts. I find that when used in baking, the taste and flavour of stevia tends to disappear, so I now save it for non-baked goods where it works very effectively. Thumbs up! 👍
Ingredients: Purified water, organic stevia leaf extract, natural flavors, cocoa extract.
IHerb were also kind enough to throw in a complimentary pencil with my order- cheers! 😄
So there you go, these are my thoughts on the products so far. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them down below. Overall, I highly recommend iHerb for online shopping as the range is enormous, the customer service is great and the prices are reasonable, even when converted from the US to the Aussie dollar!
