Possibly: Main ingredients are longifolia jack which does seem to enhance testosterone but active form is poorly absorbed orally. Other ingredient is tribulus, which increases testosterone in animals but not humans; also concern that tribulus may worsen prostate problems (bph & prostate cancer). Best to avoid this one. ...Read more
What to do if I am thinking of buying this product as I want to get thicker eyebrows but I need to be sure if it works! Has anyone used it?
None of them: None of the over-the-counter acne treatments does much good. I start with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid-based compound. If I do not get a good result in two weeks, I add a systemic antibiotic appropriate to the person. Dermatologists are allowed to use the big guns. Nobody nowadays needs to have bad acne -- life's hard enough without it. Good luck. ...Read more
Hi, Is the Growth Factor Plus really works towards increasing height and is there any side effects with this product?
If you already have: Stopped growing, Growth Hormone will NOT increase your height, but CAN cause serious side effects. Fortunately, it's unlikely that true Growth Hormone is in GH+ or other commercial supplements. If you haven't stopped growing, but have normal GH levels, you shouldn't be prescribed or administered GH even by a doctor. The major side effect of these supplements is that they are a waste money. ...Read more
Scientific Rx: Acne is a chronic disease that eventually remits as a person ages. I was able to stop taking rx when I was 50. In the meantime, topical benzoyl peroxide is your first treatment. If this fails, your personal physician can add topical clindamycin, topical tretinoin, a systemic antibiotic, or one of the big guns. Manage the disease until it remits -- you owe it to yourself. ...Read more

Hi, Does YOKO HEIGHT increser will work with out side effect? Its a good product to buy for growth?
No.: The epiphyseal plates (growth plates) at the end of the long bones begin to slow bone growth after puberty and harden--generally preventing further growth (except in the case of certain surgical methods involving breaking bone or in some cases of excess growth hormone from the pituitary). The reviews I have read for yoko height increaser are uniformly bad. Save your money. ...Read more

Depends on what: You mean by works. Some people only consider themselves clean if there skin glows and they are squeaky. However, this likely means that skin has been stripped of oils.

MIRALAX (polyethylene glycol): Softeners plus laxatives may help you-the softener keeps your stools soft while the laxative helps to push it along and out. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) (or it's generic) has been a godsend to many and should help you-- if not, please see your doc as something else may be going on! ...Read more
If you go and buy a product such as "olive leaf extract" from walgreens store for only like $ 4-16 does it mean its won't work or it can be dangerous?

You may get where you want with either vehicle but you will more likly get there with speed, eas and comfort with the mercedes. ...Read more

Acne Rx: Forget "fast" -- there's no quick fixes. Benzoyl peroxide faithfully a few times a day will help you some over the course of a week. If it's worse, get with your physician. Topical clindamycin, a topical retinoic acid derivative, or a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline 500 2x/day can clear most acne; if it's tougher, don't hesitate to get with a dermatologist. ...Read more
Maybe not: Herbalife has many products, and since they are not medications or substances approved by the FDA, Herbalife products are probably not tested for effectiveness, interactions, and side effects like real medicines are. That means nobody really knows what side effects there are. If an Herbalife user hears of some interaction or thinks he is getting a side effect, he can visit his primary care doctor. ...Read more

Finally:Try it and if it really works for you (verified with a culture), then- Bravo! ...Read more
Do teeth gap bands really work? I have researched them and ordered them from Ebay. Com and they were only for 5 dollars. I have watched reviews of this product many times of Youtube. Com and people say that they work. But I want to ask the professionals.
Ebay and youtube are not the places to seek medical or dental care products unless specifically recommended by your physican or dentist.
Use of this product to close a gap between the teeth (diastema) could lead to serious dental problems such as:
1. Loss of teeth from accelerated movement leading to bone loss and severe mobility. If you have any type of gum disease this would be particularly concerning.
2. Resorption of the roots of teeth due to accelerated tooth movement.
3. Crooked teeth due to the inability to control the direction of movement.
4. Opening of spaces behind the teeth being moved leading to a bigger esthetic problem
5. Gum problems if the elastics slip underneath the gum tissue.
Finally, this product causes a tipping movement without root repositioning. This will cause the gap to recur. Proper treatment for a anterior diastema is bodily movement of all the front teeth, where the teeth and roots remain vetical, in order to keep the spaces closed.
There are many reasons for spaces between teeth that this product cannot fix. If there is prominent tissue between the teeth then movement will not take place. If all the front teeth are flared out the rubber bands will only pull the front teeth together and not correct the flaring.
Please consult with your dentist to see if you can benefit from use of this product, and if he /s she approves, only use it under their direction. Ideally you should obtain an evaluation by an orthodontist to determine your options.
I also recommend that you read all the "fine print" regarding the use of the product as they try to absolve themselves of liability for the use of the product. ...Read more
All From a Dentist: Over the counter products aren't tested by the fda or the american dental association, and often don't even display their ingredients.

If you want to be sure, you really need to have a dentist help you with this. ...Read more
