I'm 29 yrs old &weigh 99 kilo &anaemic so I take centrum vitamins & about to start neocell super collagen +c. Should I stick to these medications?

More needed: Dietary supplements and vitamins can help but more importantly you need to find out WHY you are anemic. There are many reasons for anemia such as iron deficiency or possibly genetic causes. You need a thorough workup. Also what is your BMI? That may be more relevant than your absolute weight. Happy to discuss as a virtual consult.
Best of luck! ...Read more

What happens if there are any dangerous toxicity from nutrients in centrum for kids for taking this much a day?

Not ideal: While it's not the ideal vitamin, if they took one a day, there is not enough of anything in it to be in the "toxic" range. That being said, I would recommend a children's vitamin going forward. ...Read more

Will centrum for men hurt women if they take it?

Will centrum for men hurt women if they take it?

No: But I would avoid any product that contained FD&C colors (such as Yellow 6 Lake), as these are aluminum based. Please read the ingredients. Stannous Chloride is tin. Nickelous sulfate is nickle. I do not think these belong in a multivitamin. Titanium dioxide is also an ingredient. It has no nutritional value. Why is it in there? ...Read more

Is 4000 mg of vitime d and one centrum silver pill a day to much vitime d will it raise calsum leavel?

Is 4000 mg of vitime d and one centrum silver pill a day to much vitime d will it raise calsum leavel?

Not too much, no: Most adults need 5000-8000 iu of Vit D per day to attain optimal blood levels of 50-80. 4400 iu of D per day is quite safe. See http://tinyurl. Com/2chkcer
Vit D increases calcium absorption but doesn't affect serum calcium, which is controlled by the parathyroid gland. It's ideal to take Vit K with D. There are MUCH better multivits than Centrum silver-see http://tinyurl. Com/mzrkbx8 and comment: ...Read more

I accidentally bought a Centrum Silver Men50+. I am a 43 yr. Old male and i'd like to know if taking these capsules of centrum is okay?

Centrum men/ silver+: Comparing centrum men vs centrum silver 50+:

50+ contains less Vit A which can accumulate in the body, and you get from diet ; less Vit K another fat soluble vit (diet greens) no iron (you get it from your diet and you don't have a period), no tin, less selenium, less lycopene (both have small amount) The centrum silver has a bit lutein for eyes, not an issue.

Is centrum a high quality multivitamin?

Is centrum a high quality multivitamin?

Not the greatest: Centrum is better than some but I would never call it "high quality" as many of its ingredients are present in inadequate doses or in forms that are poorly absorbed (such as magnesium oxide) or proven to be unhealthy (such as synthetic vit e, artificial colors that contain toxic aluminum ; hydrogenated oils). There are many much better options- see http://bit. Ly/18xyule ; http://bit. Ly/1b36cq0. ...Read more

My friend swallowed 10 centrum tablets. How dangerous is this?

It's not, but...: It's just vitamins. If your friend is given to acting-out by taking pills, next time it may be something that might actually hurt him/her. Especially, if your friend is considering self-harm, you might be the person to realize this before the most dangerous thing -- withdrawal from friends -- happens. ...Read more

What to do if I have a friend who is 18 years old and is taking centrum silver 50+ please tell me if this is bad for him and how and why!!?

No: As far as vitamins go this will not hurt anyone. Most of the product ends up in the urine within 24 hours if the person is not vitamin deficient. It is not advertized as being formulated for his age group but with these products that does not matter. It is quite difficult for anyone to be vitamin deficient when healthy foods are readily available. Most people need no supplements anyway. ...Read more

Please advise if it's ok if men take womens centrum multivitamins?

Men have different health needs: Than women. The supplement for women's health that deals with hormonal balance is not the same as the ones used to support men's prostate health. On the other hand, many of the ingredients in centrum is too low to be effective in either sex. So, it may not matter. This also goes for many of the costco multivitamin formulations, unless it's from a reputable brand that has higher rda's. ...Read more

Fruit and Vegetables: Centrum is a good general vitamin but there are many needed nutrients you do not get from vitamins so get lots of fruits and vegetables from all the right groups, vary the colors. You need the antioxidants in these foods as well as the vitamins they contain. A daily vitamin is not even close so eat a healthy balanced diet. ...Read more

Does centrum really provide the vitamins etc it claims...

Does centrum really provide the vitamins etc it claims...

Yes, but also...: I have no reason to doubt that centrum has what it claims on the label, but there are far better vitamins out there. For example, it has synthetic vit e, which appears to be toxic, it has magnesium in the notoriously poorly absorbed oxide form, has artificial colors, preservatives like sodium benzoate ; toxins like titanium dioxide. See http://bit. Ly/1b36cq0 for independent ratings of 101 vits. ...Read more
