Why Supplements?: Since you're 17 years old, I am concerned that you are spending time and money wasting it on the supplements that you listed. While some of the substances are present in a healthy diet, there is actually no reason you should be taking them in the form of a supplement. You should be getting all the vitamin D you need in a healthy diet, and the other things, except Prilosec, are unproven. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A & D- very rare: One can only overdose on fat soluble vitamins (a, d, e) except vit. B6 (which should be limited to 250 mg/day). But it takes huge amounts to overdose. The average adult would need to take about 2 million units of a to overdose, or 200, 000 iu/day for several months. Vit d toxicity is rare unless one takes at least 40, 000 iu/day for months.

Can i take multivitamins that contains Vit.B1 Vit.B2 Vit.B6 Vit.B12 Nicotinamide Calcium Pantothenate and Vit.C while pregnant?
Yes, however...: Every prenatal multivitamin contains all of those and more so this is definitely safe. However, the most important vitamin in a prenatal is Folic Acid (ideally as folinic acid or L-5-MTHF), esp. important in the first few weeks of pregnancy. Also eat greens and beans/lentils for folate (folic acid). ...Read more
Ginkgo biloba, calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin d3, biotin, folic acid, and fish oil, are these good to take?
Yes: There are many brands of acid folic pills otc. ...Read more
Not likely unless...: Unless you're truly deficient, it's not likely that you'll find much benefit from b complex vitamins. Sure we look for B12 & folate (folic acid) deficiency in alzheimer's dementia, but I have yet to correct someone's levels & return their thinking process. If you drink alcohol to excess & forgo proper balanced nutrition, you can run low on b vitamins for which extra might be useful but this is pretty rare. ...Read more
Could you take prenatal vitamins that contain biotin, choline, inositol, and fumaric acid name of vitamin brand nordic berries?
I do not: Like the formula. They contain 9 grams of carbohydrate and the amount of thiamin (as are the doses of all the vitamins) is too low to metabolize that amount of carb. You can look it up on line. This expresses an incredible ignorance of industry in vitamins and foods. In pregnancy, first you need a pristine diet and the vitamin supplementation should be ordered by your ob/gyn. ...Read more
NO: In general, MAO inhibitors refer to specific prescription antidepressant drugs & are highly regulated. Many foods & herbs have mild MAO inhibiting actions, such as carrots, chocolate, coffee, ginger, grape & onions,but these effects are not clinically significant & they don't need to be avoided if on a med that interacts with MAO inhibitors: http://www.botanical-online.com/english/vegetalmaois.htm ...Read more
List?: I'm not sure what you mean by your question? There are all kinds of lipoic acid capsules, made by many different companies. For a good review of some that are independently tested, check https://www.Consumerlab.Com/reviews/alpha-lipoic_acid_supplements/alphalipoic/ you may need to subscribe, but $33/year is worth it since you get reviews of many products, not just this one. Good luck. ...Read more
Your review is wise: There are no noted interactions between these substances and each other but each may have interactions with other substances. If you are on or plan to be on other substances or medications, advise doctor and pharmacist so interactions may be reviewed. Best regards for your health and well-being. ...Read more
Find cause: I'm going to assume that you were tested by a reputable lab; there are fake "nutrition labs." d3 deficiency is common due to diet and lack of sun exposure. If you are vitamin a and zinc deficient on a reasonably normal non-vegetarian diet, you may have malabsorption. If you are B12 deficient non-vegan, you are likely to be seriously sick & need a proper workup. Get with a dr you rightly trust. ...Read more
Cold?: There are many reasons one might feel cold from vascular to neurological to endocrine to psychiatric etc. see an MD for a proper workup before you waste your money on vitamins ...Read more
My 13 year old son who weighs 144.5 pounds for some odd reason decided he was gonna sneak and take 1-2 of my chewy woman’s daily vitamin.
Will this hurt him? Please if someone could answer this quickly
Yes. IV bad choice.: The oral route and IV route are equally effective at correcting excessive anticoagulation. The IV route carries the risk of anaphylaxis. Therefore the IV route should not be used if the oral route is available. The SC route is NOT as effective as the oral or IV and should not be considered a first line option. ...Read more
Few, Food Better: Vitamins is a big market, very inexpensive, derived from all sorts of otherwise food waste ; non food materials, big business, dependent on public ignorance/fear. Outside of vitamin d3 (not d), which I have found to be low for many people, or other specific deficiencies, possibly omega 3's from phytoplankton, best eat minimally processed foods from nature, avoid center isles with processed foods. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Any reviews or feedback on the vitamin blood flow optimizer? Anything in it to be concerned of ingredient why’s? Thank you
Not worth it: at all reviews show the ingredients,[antioxidants and vitamins ,herbs ] can be found in healthy food diet , watching your weight, never smoking, drinking too much alcohol,, exersizing like walking alot, Dr Robbins doesn't have a medical degree , , for instance any sign of circulation help by vit c would need at least 500 mg , and they give 91 mg, 350 mg of magnesium can lead to low blood pressure ...Read more

Is the brand name water, vitamin water really a healthy choice? One of the ingredients is reverse osmosis water, what s that? Do doctors advice against it?
Vitamin B17?: Since the early 1950s, a modified form of amygdalin has been promoted under the names laetrile and "vitamin b17" as a cancer cure. In reality, laetrile is not a vitamin, and studies have found it to be ineffective, dangerously toxic due to its cyanide content, and potentially lethal. Medical experts issue a strong warning against its use. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: I advise everyone to take a good multivitamin. Very few Americans get the recommended allowance of all vitamins and minerals and even those who do benefit from taking higher amounts. I also advise at least 500 mg of Vit C 2x/day. All Americans (except those in the deep South) need 5000-8000 iu of Vit D3 in fall and winter months, year-round if don't get much sun.

Meats vegetables: Meat contains large amounts of b6, as do green vegetables, such as broccoli and green beans. One thing to keep in mind is how you cook these foods. If you char the meat down to a cinder, most of the vitamins will denature. Likewise for vegetables. Eating them raw is best, or steam them for 2 or 3 minutes. If you boil them for 10 minutes, most of the vitamins end up in the water. ...Read more
No: Amygdalin is sold under this name but it's not a vitamin. This is the laetrile fraud -- the most vicious of all the historic cancer quack regimens, and the most profitable to its proponents. Sadly, it's still around. There's nothing spiritual about "keeping an open mind" about a proven, vicious scan. Simply shun these people and don't reward them with even a little of your money. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
