The End Of Black Label Krill Oil

life just blew you up

This post first appeared at RagTagResearchGeeks.com. We’re reprinting it here in an effort to help get the word out: ======== Apparently, all good things must come to an end.  The manufacturer of Black Label Krill Oil has decided to discontinue it’s production. It seems that

No Such Thing As Failure

Word success in text

I was completely engrossed, hanging on every word.  I read story after story, barely able to believe what I was reading.  Every person I read about was completely unsuccessful.  I began to find comfort in their failures.  Their defeat made me smile.  I know, I

When Social Media Meets Depression


“Its not the same!” Her face was flush with anxiety and disappointment. Gwen’s mother put her arm around her sobbing daughter.  It was an all-night cry fest and there was no way fix it.  The tears flowed freely like a dam that had ruptured from

Wanna change your Life? Sit Up Straight!


“Sit up straight, young lady.”  The stern voice was quickly followed by a loud thwack on my desk by Mrs. Stinson’s indestructible ruler.  Seriously, I don’t know how that thing never broke.  She smacked it on someone’s desk at least 50 times a day.  “You

Perfect Imperfection


I ran through the terminal as fast as I could while pulling a carry-on behind me.  The voice over the loud speaker taunted me again.  “Last call for Flight 2356 to Dallas-Fort Worth.”  I searched the terminal gate numbers ahead of me as I ran. 

You vs. Soda—The Ultimate Battle for Health


I am not a soda drinker. I only drink it when I’m sick of coffee and jonesing for an afternoon caffeine kick … Or when I’m at family functions or with friends at restaurants … Or when it’s readily available in my fridge, or better

Three Benefits of Running You Probably Haven’t Thought Of


Running is awesome. I can sense your scoffing all the way across the internet. “Running is awful,” you might be saying. “No one really likes to run except oddballs and people with disorders.” I was once like you. I used to think running was too

Who Are We?

The Geeks

We are the Rag-Tag group of Research Geeks that have uncovered all the wonderful information on this site.

Perhaps we’re a little weird. OK, we ARE a little weird. We love research, and we spend all day, every day, looking at real science. The actual research data.

We believe that science can show us how to live better. Not by blindly following every media-hyped revelation from every new study (you'll get whiplash from changing directions so often!)... and not by turning our lives upside down and becoming obsessed with health and fitness, either.

Because we DON'T believe people living in the real world can bake all their own whole-grain bread at home or create every meal from scratch using only locally-grown organic produce. Nor do most of us have time to spend hours at the gym every day.

We're real people with real lives. Which means we're going to have to hit the Drive-Thru more than we'd like. And we have meetings, and families, and tight schedules. And we're tired of being made to feel guilty by well-meaning zealots who think that we don't measure up to their definition of healthy.

Here, we believe in being as healthy as we can. In trying to find ways to fit some fitness in and doing a little better every day without letting it control our lives.

The point of being healthier is to LIVE. And that's what this site is all about.

    I tried the Sea Buckthorn Oil (aka Life Oil) for a year – I hadn’t noticed any difference so I decided to go without it when I ran out about 45 days ago. Nothing bad happened and actually my skin looks better and I have more energy , etc., than I had when I took it. I’d like to claim my refund on that product. However, I finally got up the nerve to try your Calciology as a last hope for my translucent bones. After almost 3 bottles, my last lab came back much better for the 1st time in history! I’ve reordered 9 more months worth on this order and simply because I can’t stand up long enough to cook a healthy meal for myself, I wanted to try the Green Coffee Extract to get rid of the 15-20 extra pounds I’m carrying because I can’t exercise and I’m never really hungry. Can this help someone in my situation? Please advise before sending the Green Coffee Extract. Thanks for the Calciology – I’ve tried everything else natural with no results. This was my last shot – Thanks for making a Calcium/K-2 product that actually worked for me – I hope I continue to see improvement in the future.

      Hi there jcwyne1313! To return the life oil sea buckthorn product, an invoice is not necessary as long as it has not been over a year. All you need to do is send the unused portion back to the address below along with some means of identification (your full name along with your email address is best) and you’ll get your refund within 3-5 business days after it is processed. I have also emailed you separately as well.

    I have decided to give the garcinia cambogia supplement a try as I have tried others and havent had sucess. Seems I am always hungry so its not working. I do try to watch what I eat (low carb) and walk 2 miles every day. Any other suggestions?

    • Geek15 says:

      Hey LadyChef! A healthy diet coupled with exercise is always a plus. The reasons the other products didn’t work for you could be a number of things. Since we’re not doctors here, the best advice we could give you on that is to consult with a dietitian or healthcare professional. We can tell you one of the benefits of the HCA in garcinia cambogia is that it works as an appetite suppressant. Taking a good quality garcinia cambogia supplement might help benefit in that area.

      I hope that helps!

    I just received my trial bottle of HCA65 Garcinia Cambogia. I was impressed with several things: 1) how fast I received the shipment and 2) the instruction booklet that came with the order. I had been taking Garcinia Cambogia that I ordered from another website and in the six weeks that I took it, I did not lose any weight, not even one pound. No instructions came with that order. After reading your posts about calcium in other products, I checked my product and there it was….calcium listed as the first ingredient. So I am excited to see if I lose any weight with your product. Thank you for the quick shipment. I will post in a month if I lose any weight with your product.

    If I take a calcium supplement, will that interfere with the results?

    • Geek3 says:

      Yes, it can interfere with absorption of both products.

      As long as the garcinia supplement and the separate calcium are taken approximately 2 hours apart, you should be fine.

      I hope that helps, and best of luck to you!

    After researching the internet for several DAYS on Yacon syrup, I have to tell you that RagTag was the only site that told me everything I needed to know about Yacon including how much FOS is in the product. The majority of other products/sites either did not say at all or said ABOUT 65%…”about” leaves the amount of FOS open to debate/interpretation, no? 25% could be “about” 65% if the company thought it would get them more money! Truth is certainly not something that is mandatory. Not to mention no other seller/company of Yacon Syrup offers a 365 day money back guarantee. If I take it and it doesn’t work, I send it back and get my money back–where can you go wrong with this?
    WHO are you awesome people??? I don’t know, but I sure am glad you are here for us!
    And I can not wait to get my YaYa™ Yacon Syrup!!!!

      Well thank you, Macdean01! We certainly appreciate you! This is what we do and love to do it and I’m so glad we can help. Hope you find success with the Ya Ya Yacon Syrup! Sending you all our best!
