Notes on “health food” and health supplements

This post notes the things I've been trying out, their prices, and whether the thing is worthwhile. 


Taki Bar  mid-June 2011:  from – I got a set of 5 bars for about $13 from the health shop on Burke St. (corner of Swanston). Apparently it is supposed to detox. Took all five. Noticed a substantial increase in intestinal gas. My focus was on its impact on eyes. No unique impact, but it prompted me to start taking to work a box of seeds to eat.  


Goji Antiox bar: July 2011. Found this in Safeway (macedon) for about $1.55 or so. Contains 160 calories with very limited sugar, and goji and other stuff. Nice. Worth paying $1.55. It actually costs more from the website

Also got seeds from Safeway (about $5 I think), to mix with cereal/seeds in the morning.

aloe vera

I'm drinking a lot of aloe vera drink (I love Aloe), distributed by sammi commerce – of s.korea. It contains aloe vera crush, alo vera powder, etc. details . It is also quite cheap ($2.50 per bottle of 1.5 litres, and goes for two days). The whole lot 1.5 litres gives about 700 calories, so it is important to cut down other food.

Flax seed 

Got melrose organic golden flaxmeal for about $5 from the Burke st shop. This will go for many days. Definitely worthwhile. I think that when I eat this my eyes feel better.
