June #iHerb Haul! Health, Wellness, Probiotics, IBS, Gluten Free, Vegan

I placed a small order with iHerb this month. I always purchase the largest size available for my Primal Defense probiotics, so that takes up a big chunk of my budget. It's well worth it, though.

As always you can find more information on each product by clicking on the heading for each item.

Garden of Life Primal Defense HSO Probiotic Formula

From iHerb: "Primal Defense is a natural blend of 12 species of probiotics and Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs), utilizing the Poten-Zyme process and delivered within a whole food matrix. The HSO probiotic blend in Primal Defense helps support normal gastrointestinal balance of good and potentially harmful bacteria to help maintain a balanced, healthy internal environment, and maximizes the benefits of a healthy diet by supporting normal absorption and assimilation of nutrients in the gut."

There have been many links to the gut and immunity, overall health and even mental health. Here I've linked an article on the link between gut health and mental health by the CBC.

I have written a whole post (linked here) on how Primal Defense probiotics have alleviated ALL of my IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) symptoms. It's worth its weight in gold. And, I have tried more budget friendly probiotics but none of them helped me like Primal Defense! It was invaluable to me when I had H-Pylori and that is when I discovered this wonderful product.

These come in various sizes and even a powder formula for those who don't like swallowing tablets as well as a formula for kids. I just choose the big daddy size because it's the most economical in the long run.

I think that most people would benefit from a good probitic since our soils are so depleted these days.

Auromere Ayurvedic Herbal Toothpaste

I found this all natural toothpaste under iHerb's "Try and Save" link at the top of their page. I always check there when placing an order for great deals! I got this toothpaste for only $1. Now Foods Xyliwhite is my favourite toothpaste of all times, but I thought why not give this one a try for only $1.

From iHerb: "Neem & Peelu - with 23 Herbal Extracts - Including the "Toothbrush Tress"
Auromere's Ayurvedic Formula combines the naturally cleansing and potently invigorating properties of NEEM, PEELU and 21 other barks, roots, plants and flowers that have been esteemed for centuries by Ayurvedic Specialists for their separate and combined efficacy in maintaining superior dental hygiene."

This concentrated toothpaste is supposed to last 3 times longer than other brands of toothpaste. It's all natural and free of fluoride, gluten, parabens, and more. It's also cruelty-free and vegan!

California Gold Nutrition LactoBif Probiotics

These probiotics were on special (again under the Try & Save link at the top of iHerb's page).

From iHerb:
  • 5 Billion CFU per Veggie Capsule
  • 8 Active & Clinically Researched Probiotic Strains²
  • 5 Lactobacilli
  • 3 Bifidobacteria
  • No Refrigeration Necessary¹
  • No Dairy, Gluten, GMO's or Soy...
  • Suitable for Vegetarians

There is also a sticky note pad in the picture. iHerb often throws in fun little freebies.

iHerb is my favourite place to shop for health and beauty products and everything in between. You can find such great deals and International shipping is as low as a flat rate of $4 which I just can't find elsewhere.

It's a great place to find specific products like cruelty-free, gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian etc. You can type any of those phrases (or others) into the search bar on their website and it will only show you products that fit into that category!

You can get $5 off your order by entering discount code AGU725 during checkout or use this link to have it applied automatically. 

If you do shop on iHerb, make sure to check out the links at the top of their website for super specials. Some are daily deals that are fabulous and only last 24 hours.

If you decide to try any new supplements, remember to check with your Doctor before doing so.

Happy shopping!

  1. This natural toothpaste sounds great! I still haven't purchased anything from iHerb yet, I must check them out.

    1. I've been shopping there for at least 17 years! Everything is cheaper there compared to where I live, even with the dollar conversion and shipping (which is usually a flat $4 and sometimes free!) :)
