Nioxin vitamins for women's hair health i've read great things about nioxin vitamins for women's hair health. Do you know anything about them?

Nioxin vitamins for women's hair health i've read great things about nioxin vitamins for women's hair health.  Do you know anything about them?

Hair health: Agree with the doctor who commented on $. Nioxin is basically a super weak "knock off" for rogaine (minoxidil) type medicine. If you have hair loss best to make sure no thyroid or anemia issues (or many other derm issues). If really a problem & want a product, discuss something more "proven" to invest your efforts. (for ex: rogaine (minoxidil), but not for pregnant women.). ...Read more

7month baby(Down Syndrome-trisomy 21).Friend suggested NuTriVene-D vitamins (Daily Supplement, Daily Enzyme, and NightTime Formula).What do you think?

Supplement review: Although I do not have first hand experience with this product, I have reviewed the website and their claims. They claim to manufacture according to current Good Manufacturing Processes, have FDA inspected facilities, and appear to have policies for lab testing for product purity and quality. These practices are generally good indicators of a reputable company, so the product is likely safe. ...Read more

Great, get best ones: A healthy diet augmented by a multivitamin is an essential foundation for good health. Some multivits are MUCH better than others.

3 months preg lack of focus/concentration affecting my job I take prenatab any herbal sups I can take to help? Gingko? Soya? Omega3? VitB3/12?

3 months preg lack of focus/concentration affecting my job I take prenatab any herbal sups I can take to help? Gingko? Soya? Omega3? VitB3/12?

Most are safe.: I strongly discourage the use of herbal remedies like Gingko while pg but Omega 3's are fine in recommended doses.. You're probably getting enough B vitamins in your prenatal vitamins; additional B vitamins are a waste of money. Soy products are fine as long as you go easy on the soy sauce which is loaded with salt. I don't think any supplements will help with your lack of focus however. ...Read more

Can you take to many vitamins? At the moment i take 2, 000mg vitamins c daily, omega 3(heard it helps memory) zinc and vitamin a(heard they helped acne

Not too many: You can't take too many vitamins- it is safe to take them all- thus the concept of a multivitamin. You can take too much of a particular one, but there is a wide margin of safety. What you are taking is safe, but doses of zinc above 60 mg/day may harm some. While it is safe to take 25, 000 units a day of vit. A it may be harmful to take more than 6, 000 a day in early pregnancy, so be cautious. ...Read more

Can i take folic acid 800 mcg, biotin 5000 mcg and multivitamins together?

Can i take folic acid 800  mcg, biotin 5000 mcg and multivitamins together?

Yes, qualified : Folic acid is metabolized to methyl folate. In some individuals this step is inefficient and metylfolate may be a better choice. Some people have adverse reactions to high dose folic acid. Biotin is generally considered safe. This high dose would be inappropriate during pregnancy. Add one at a time and listen to your body's response. ...Read more

What do doctors think about anavite synthetic multivitamin?

What do doctors think about anavite synthetic multivitamin?

Better than many but: I can't speak for other docs. Looking at the ingredients it looks ok; it's main selling point is high levels of carnitine ; beta-alanine which are thought to be beneficial in building muscle when working out, but beta-alanine can cause paresthesias (nerve pain). It has natural e but not much ; would be better if it had mixed tocopherols. For independent ratings of 101 vits seehttp://bit.Ly/1b36cq0. ...Read more

Can I take multiple vitamins daily?

Can I take multiple vitamins daily?

Yes, once a day: If a person has knowledge of nutrition and has a very balanced diet, then he or she may not need to take a daily multivitamin because his foods contain enough. I recommend each person take a multivitamin because many people don't have a truly balanced diet. Some people also need extra vitamin d, calcium, folate, omega3, etc..., depending on individual issues. Generally, there are no side effects. ...Read more

Are b 12 shots good for overall energy? im thinking about taking them

Check your B12 vitamin levels first: Before randomly getting a vitamin B12 shot done. In any case you have to have a doctor inject to you. So it isn't as easy as it sounds. But knowing what your lab value is, will determine how much B12 you need, in order to have normal levels. Then you can supplement either orally or by injection. ...Read more
