I have Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc altogether in one pill. It says to take 1 to 3 caplets daily with a meal. Can I take all three at once, instead?

I have Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc altogether in one pill. It says to take 1 to 3 caplets daily with a meal. Can I take all three at once, instead?

Med Directions: If it says 1-3 daily, then it means all at once. If it were to say take 1 tablet three times a day then it would mean exactly that. If it said to take one tablet up to three times a day then it would be how your are interpreting the directions. According to what you said the correct way is the first, 1-3 tablets all at once, one time a day. ...Read more

Is safe to take in combination: Zinc, Calcium complex, Vitamin C, Flax seed oil and Whey protein?

Is safe to take in combination: Zinc, Calcium complex, Vitamin C, Flax seed oil and Whey protein?

Those supplements: In combination are not a problem. Perhaps a more important question would be why do you take them all? If you have health concerns please see your doc or a nutritional consultant. Split vitamin C up into a.m. and p.m. doses because it only lasts about 12 hours in body. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I'm in my mid 30s and take vitamins such as calcium magnesium zinc and fish oil on a daily basis.  are there any potential risks?  is it safe?

Be careful with zinc: Zinc can be helpful in maintaining your healthy immune function, but too much zinc can actually decrease your immune function. Excess zinc can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. It can also interfere with the absorption of other essential minerals, particularly magnesium and copper. A copper deficiency can inhibit the transport of iron in the body and result in anemia. The upper limit is 40mg/d. ...Read more

If someone in mid30s had growth plates that possibly never closed & took calcium mag, Vit D, zinc, could they cause height to increase several inches?

Open growth rates: Open growth plates at age 30 or so are extremely unlikely.
Have you had these open plates confirmed or is that your thinking?
If confirmed your doctors need to take a bone biopsy and see what is going on. With open growth plates your risk of fracture is increased and there is little likelihood, if any, of your growing taller. ...Read more

Suggest me some multivitamins tablet that contain good amount of zinc, calcium, magnesium. And should be safe to use?

Doctors and vitamins: I hope you understand that the various vitamin products on the market are something that most physicians would not have any expertise in. There are vitamin standards set by the government and daily recommended doses. These are all well displayed on the vitamin products available.

Little benefit: You are most likely to reach your tallest potential height by following a healthy diet, getting appropriate sleep and remaining physically active. Nothing you eat or drink will add inches to the final specified in your genes. Most over 18 have closed growth centers and will not grow taller, a few will grow a little until 20. Supplements only help if you were deficient. ...Read more

Can taking any of the following lengthen bones and increase the height of an adult female: zinc, calcium magnesium, vitamin d, vitamin k, vitamin b?
