Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?

Yes: These are safe though I wouldn't take them all at once. I advise the multivitamin after breakfast, the probiotic at the start of a meal, the fish oil after lunch or dinner, apple cider vinegar in water separate from meals and the psyllium at bedtime.
Some multivitamins are far better than others- see https://drrandybaker.com/2012/11/

Is it ok for me to be taking a fish oil with D3 added along with a garlic and B12 supplement? Im 25 years old, 6'2" and 260lbs.

Is it ok for me to be taking a fish oil with D3 added along with a garlic and B12 supplement? Im 25 years old, 6'2" and 260lbs.

Yes: These are all perfectly safe and generally beneficial to take. In the fall and winter months adults need about 5000 iu of vit d a day to achieve a good level of vit d, so if your fish oil does not have 5000 iu of d3 (which is unlikely) then i would advise taking additional d3 at that time. If you spend much time in the midday sun in spring & summer that should provide adequate d during that time. ...Read more

Should I take fish oil supplements or omega 3-6-9 ones? Which one is better?

Eat wild salmon: It is far healthier to consume omega-3s from a natural source such as wild salmon than from fish oil or synthetic forms. The question is why are you taking this supplement in the first place? To reduce cholesterol? Anti-inflammatory? Anti-coagulant? Brain health? Whatever the reason, wild pacific salmon is still preferable. Don't buy into the hype that the pills are nearly as beneficial. ...Read more

Hi doctors. Is fish oil suitable for me? Im 22 yrs old. I exercise 4 times a week. Can i take fish oil supplement to lose weight?

Can take, but...: There should be no problem supplementing your diet with fish oil (can help manage your lipid levels), but for weight loss it has not proven to be effective. I would increase your aerobic exercise past 30 minutes continuously, keep it at low resistance, high repetition, and long duration. Those three characteristics help in conjunction with decreasing your oral intake, and avoid injury. ...Read more

If I take fish oil, prenatal, and multi vitamins daily along with a weight loss supplement, am I over doing it? Or am I okay?

Pregnancy: Take your prenatal vitamins. The rest are not necessary and the weight loss supplement could cause your baby harm. Be sure to get enough calcium - 1200 to 1500 mg.
