We have been taking Now Foods, Liver Detoxifier & Regenerator, 180 Capsules since May. Initially, I was taking the liver detox supplement to aid in my chronic skin allergies, but I think my skin conditions are way beyond that. I coerced the husband to start taking it too.
After weeks of taking the liver detoxifier, and also the Omega-3 capsules (will blog separately), we were surprisingly pleased with improved energy level and alertness in the mind too.
Last month, we were out of supply, and we didn’t think it was that big a deal to just miss days or weeks until the stock arrives. After all, we didn’t used to take the supplement before, I know, that’s what you are thinking too, yes?
Wrong! I missed the supplement for 2-3 days, and I was feeling lethargic, like before – as in before I started the supplements. It was not just me, I was still tired and sleepy when I got up from bed. I must looked awful, even the husband noticed, and he expressed that he was feeling really tired.
See, we are both self-employed, that means that we tend to work more hours. Don’t get me wrong, we love our work – we are not working in the same industry, if that is what you thought – we woke each morning and DESIRE to work. No kidding! Just that, with our ‘overdrive’, we tend to drive the energy dry.
Once I restarted on the supplement again, I feel refreshed every morning, and keep good energy level throughout the day. Trust me, I have been working on deadline after deadline, I would be flat-out on energy if not for the supplement – yes, I firmly believe it helps me feel energized.
Aside, both the husband and I enjoy some liquor in the evening. We may not drink heavily, but regular alcohol intake can take a toll on the liver.
Liver detoxifier is also commonly taken by people who partied too hard. It is said to help deal with hangover symptoms.
I bought my supplies online – right, that’s probably the only channel I am completely comfortable with shopping – from iHerb – USA based. iHerb is quite popular amongst Singaporeans, Koreans, Japanese, Russians, and of course Americans.
If you are residing outside USA, I DO NOT recommend the International Airmail service. It’s not trackable, and it can take months. Trust me, it has never gotten to me sooner than 3 weeks!
1. Take advantage of the further bulk discount – say for Liver detoxifier, buy 4 or more, you get extra 2.5% discount (it’s small but still good saving since you should really try the supplement for a few months before seeing results; although we do feel the difference by weeks)
2. Plan ahead, and perhaps combine orders with your friends and family members and use DHL service at good discounted rate instead – just plan your order below SGD400 (shipping inclusive) to avoid GST*. DHL turnaround is very fast; I received my orders on the 4th day of order.
3. If you have not shopped with iHerb, use this gift code IQO058 or click through this link iherb.com/?rcode=iqo058 to receive an extra $10 off your 1st purchase of $40 or more, or $5 off orders less than $40.
4. Subscribe to their newsletter to be updated with latest promotion – currently, there is a 10% discount going on, last till 30 Sep!
*GST – if you order exceeds S$400 including shipping fee; you will be imposed with 7% GST. If shipped by DHL, your package will still clear, and DHL will send you an invoice a few days after the package is delivered to you.
Definitely recommending this product!
A friend exclaimed when I shared with her the Master Cleanse program that I did some months back; and now on liver detoxifier. She said, ‘so much detox!’. With the kind of food we are taking now, imagine how hard the liver is working. And in case I am going to live a long life, I’d want to have a healthier liver to get me there. 😛
Here’s what the product description says:
