Can Flax Seed Oil Pills Make Athletic Performance Better
Doubtful!: No one thing usually makes performance better. It is an overall process of diet/good nutrition, rest, fluid intake, mental health, sleep and adequate rest, stretching and avoiding bad health habits. Don't put all of your eggs in one basket. Variety is the spice of life. Work with a reputable trainer to enhance performance with the above taken into consideration. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
L-tryptophan: The speculative reason to take pumpkin seed oil for depression is that it contains l-tryptophan, an amino acid. Pumpkin seed oil has not been studied in depression, to my knowledge but l-tryptophan has been studied at 300-4000mg per day. Since only a very small amount of l-tryptophan is available per gram of oil, it is not worth it to take the oil. Better to just take l-tryptophan directly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

(how) can coconut oil replace butter and cooking oil for a better health if you also use olive oil, meat and fish? What are proper amounts?
Mediterranean diet: There are a lot of claims with regard to coconut oil, most of the unsubstantiated. The healthiest diet so far, proven to reduce heart disease in many patients, is the mediterranean diet. It relies on liberal use of extra virgin olive oil, vinegar ( low glycemic index, promotes full stomach sensation), fruits, grains, and moderate wine consumption. Canola oil can also be used, in small amounts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Flax seed oil which I'm going to put in my smoothies (for omega 3) and fish oil pills. what else can I do with flax oil?
Many uses: I'm glad you're health-conscious. It's a cooking oil popular in Europe, it's the basis of putty, is used to lubricate pool cues and cricket bats, thin paint, and was the basis of linoleum. Despite all the talk online, if there's a real health benefit it awaits demonstration. Enjoy your smoothies, but these are no substitute for sensible eating, avoiding smoking and staying aerobically fit. ...Read more
Yes: It's a popular cooking oil and like anything else greasy and good-tasting, we tend to overeat and get fat from it. If you're actually taking the oil, it's still calories. Real evidence of any health benefit remains sparse at best. Why not just eat sensibly, avoid unhealthy habits, and focus on physical fitness? Health doesn't come from a bottle or pills. Best wishes. ...Read more
I am taking herbal supplements fish oil, estrogen, multiple vitamin, hyaluronic acid, pumpkin seed oil. Are these safe to take with each other?
Not really, but why?: Who knows? They may not even be safe by themselves, as you never really know what's in them to begin with. Why are you taking them in the first place. What are you attempting to fix, and how are you going to tell if any of them help -- what criteria are you going to use. They will commonly interact adversely with other supplements and also with prescription meds. Avoid at all costs. ...Read more
Olive best: Olive oil is far better than canola oil for you. Canola oil is gmo, as is corn and soy. http://drfairchild.blogspot.com/2012/12/cooking-oils.html. ...Read more
I want to start a few supplements. Is Flax seed oil, Calcium supplement and multivitamin fine to take together?
Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. The popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. The dose (read label and check that half or more of the ingredients are several 100 per cent above RDA. Dose more important than a long list. Flax & calcium ok. ...Read more
Can I use olive oil the same as normal "cooking oil" when frying foods? I usually use vegetable or canola oil but want to lower cholesterol.
Varies: I would use olive oil in cold dishes as there are some concerns that many of the benificial properties are not heat stable. ...Read more
Possibly: Fish oil is fat. Fat contains calories. Caloric intake causes weight gain. So, yes, it's possible. Although not likely from a single overdose. The label on the fish oil bottle should tell you how many calories are in a capsule (or 2 capsules) depending on the recommended dose. There is no evidence to show mega-. ...Read more
Will taking too much blood thinning supplements like garlic, fish oil and flaxseed make you feel lightheaded?
Not at all: This is totally safe, a bit like having pumpkin pie after eating fish. While both fish oil and pumpkin seed oil are good sources of omega 3 fatty acids, pumpkin seed oil contains omega 6 and other fatty acids not found in fish oil, so taking them together would give you a better balance of fatty acids. ...Read more
Depends: Vitamin a, e, d, and k are fat soluble and will accumulate: they have know overdoses that are toxic. B vitamins and c are water soluble - you excrete any excess in your urine.
