Quality of Life Labs Review

Since the end of 2005, I have been a woman on a mission to get healthy and out of pain. I wish so badly to be cured of my chronic pelvic pain condition and would do just about anything to get rid of it. If you told me to run through the streets naked and I would be cured, I wouldn’t even hesitate. I would do it. In reality, I know life is never that easy so I have to try different things and do what I can with the tools available to me.  One of the areas I have turned to in my quest for health has been natural supplements. I have tried various kinds over the years and all with different results. One company that I hadn’t tried before was Quality of Life Labs so I was interested in trying them out and seeing what they had to offer.

The first product that Quality of Life Labs sent me to try was Kinoko Gold AHCC, a supplement that provides immune system support. In fact, it is the #1 immune support supplement in Japan and is used in over 700 clinics throughout Asia. It is now just making its way into the US market. It contains a hybrid of the mushroom mycelia and works to boost your immune system by increasing the activity of many immune cells (like macrophages and Killer T-Cells).

I know from experience that when your immune system is weak, your body cannot fight off viruses and illnesses. I know for a fact that my immune system is weaker than it should be. I had mono when I was 6 years old and my doctor told me that the virus goes dormant, but never really leaves your body. He said that my immune system will be weaker because of it. I do notice that when I am sick with a cold that it does take me longer to get rid of it than it should or I may get back to back colds and flus. Not fun. I have no idea if my chronic pelvic pain is related to my immune system being weaker, but it very well could be.

I knew that Kinoko Gold AHCC would be perfect for me to take. My immune system needs all the help it can get. The directions say to take 2 to 6 capsules a day on an empty stomach. It works to take 2 in the morning when you get up, 2 in the mid afternoon and 2 before bed. I didn’t notice any unpleasant side effects. I am not sick right now (knock on wood), but I am curious to see how my body responds when flu season rolls in. Being sick is no fun especially when there’s so much to be done in the day. I don’t mind taking these supplements if it will prevent me from getting sick for long periods of time. Everything is go-go-go these days and there simply is no time to take a day off!

The Kinoko Gold AHCC are sold in 60 capsule bottles and are on sale right now for $74.50.

The other product Quality of Life Labs sent me was Oligonol, an antioxidant and anti-aging supplement.  There is some interesting science behind it if you are inclined to find out how exactly it works. It works to improve the following areas:

  • Skin (prevent and reduce wrinkles and freckles)
  • Blood circulation
  • Feelings of fatigue
  • Metabolic support

I thought this would be the perfect product for my mom to try. She is an active woman in her 50s and takes care of herself by eating well and exercising. She is in much better shape than me! I know that she does like anti-aging products so I knew she would be interested in trying out the Oligonol. I told her what it was for and she was excited to be my guinea pig so to speak!

She has taken it for the last month now and said she does feel like she has more energy and is less tired than usual. She said there was no side effects with taking it and it was easy to add into her daily regimen. She said she thought the brown spots on her hands and one under her eye looked like they were fading, and she wants to keep using it more to see the full effects. So far so good though!

Oligonol comes in a bottle of 30 capsules for $29.49.
