Hassnar Brestone Capsules useful for 22yr girl ??

I can't recommend it: I don't know of any medical studies to validate its effectiveness or if there could be any side effects. Not all herbal (natural) pills are free of side effects. I can't recommend it. I suggest you go to the blogs and talk to people who have used it and see what they are saying. ...Read more

7 Ms pregnant wife wants to start taking omega3. I got 1200 mg Holland&Barret EPA(648mg) DHA(432mg) in three capsules. Is it ok to take 3 caps. daily?

Follow package: instructions on maximal dosage. Omegas should be stopped about 2 weeks prior to delivery as they may interfere with labor and could cause increased bleeding. Since you can't predict exactly when delivery may be, stop at about 36 weeks to be sure. ...Read more

Help,son 15 months old,opened whole fish oil 1000mg,wheat germ 100 mg per caps,2 caps and ingested,mouth smells fish,don't think mercury free?

Help,son 15 months old,opened whole fish oil 1000mg,wheat germ 100 mg per caps,2 caps and ingested,mouth smells fish,don't think mercury free?

Child should be ok: Fish oil caps are intended for maintenance use and if mercury content was high, it would not be safe for adults either. About 6 oz of wild salmon will provide about 2000 mg of DHA, and it is thought that infants over 6 months can have up to 3 oz a week, so avoid further fish in your infants diet for the next few weeks to be sure. ...Read more

Is the ingredients mention below suitable for pregnant woman 1) Collagen peptide 2) perilla seed extract 3) silk protein 4) soy isolfavone?

Is the ingredients mention below suitable for pregnant woman 1) Collagen peptide 2) perilla seed extract 3) silk protein 4) soy isolfavone?

Forget this stuff.: Take your prenatal vitamins, folic acid, calcium and Vit. D and nothing else. All of those products are poorly studied and there is very little responsible, independent testing to determine if they actually work or if they may have side effects, or harm fetuses. Also the companies have different ways of making up these pills. Save your money and spend it on plenty of fruits and veggies instead. ...Read more

I found many health benefits abt sesame seeds but nutri data says it's↑in Ω6(20g in 100g).Is it ok 2 it eat anyway bcs it's in food¬ as supplement?

I found many health benefits abt sesame seeds but nutri data says it's↑in Ω6(20g in 100g).Is it ok 2 it eat anyway bcs it's in food¬ as supplement?

Sesame seeds healthy: Nuts and seeds are excellent for anyone's health as long as they are not allergic to them. Even the so-called 'healthy' oil, olive oil is very high in omega-6 fats and really should only be used rarely, but whole foods like nuts and seeds can be used liberally as long as you are not overweight, trying to lose weight, or have ibs (irritable bowel syndrome) and even then if they are ground up. ...Read more

I am allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut. Could I have a protein intolerance?

I am  allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut.  Could I have a protein intolerance?

What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome.This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read more
