Does omega 3 fatty acid supplements helps prevents acne for people taking vegetarian diet.

Does omega 3 fatty acid supplements helps prevents acne for people taking vegetarian  diet.

No: The last three real human studies of omega-threes for atherosclerosis / lipid problems showed no benefit. The vegetarian / natural foods people write about this-and-that benefiting this-and-that without needing any real basis, and there's an anecdotal peer-reviewed article, but nothing solid. Acne's treatable by 21st century medicine and if you need us mainstream physicians, we're here for you. ...Read more

Is it good to have a drink which contains soy protein, hi-maize, vitamin (a c B6 b12), thiamin b1, niacin b3, folate, (folic acid) sodium, potassium in pregnancy ?

Is it good to have a drink which contains soy protein, hi-maize, vitamin (a c B6 b12), thiamin b1, niacin b3, folate, (folic acid) sodium, potassium in pregnancy ?

Which form: Which forms the vitamins are can matter. For example, B6 comes inactive and also active. The active form of B6 is pyridoxal-5-phosphate. Too much inactive B6 can actually block active B6 from the B6 receptor, creating symptoms of B6 deficiency. Folic acid is synthetic, and too much can be bad also. Methylfolate and folinic acid are what one should take during pregnancy. ...Read more

Should one on chemo (xeloda+eloxatin+zometa) take multivitamins, calcium, antioxidants, resveratrol, digestive enzymes, fish oils, curcumin etc?

Xeloda-oxali: You may want to stop your multivitamins while you are on Xeloda as Folic Acid may exgerate side effect of xeloda. You also need to have your vitamin d level checked and take a supplement if the level is low as vitamin d deficiency may affect the response to chemotherapy. ...Read more

Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout? Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?

Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout? 
Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement  safe for gout users?

None will effect gou: Gout is related to URIC ACID and PURINES, not amino acids or protein supplements. BUT, since everything you mention is a complete waste of money, why bother to ask? There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...Read more

Could you take prenatal vitamins that contain biotin, choline, inositol, and fumaric acid name of vitamin brand nordic berries?

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

Any interactions?:ashwagandha, magnesium l threonate,taurate,glycinate, fish oil, cdp choline,acetyl l carnitine,alpha lipoic acid, vitamin d,prilosec

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 more

Is it healthy to take lactose (enzyme) pills daily?

Is it healthy to take lactose (enzyme)  pills daily?

It's fine to do: Lactase (the enzyme that breaks down lactose milk sugar) is something that all mammals have, because we are born milk-drinkers. As time goes by (it is genetic, familial) many people make less and less lactase, so can't digest lactose. Presuming the lactase pills have good purity, it should be fine to use every day, because it is just replacing something we naturally had in our bodies. ...Read more

Is it bad to take sports supplements with diabetes? Currently consuming protein/creatine shake, sd matrix, fat burners, fish oils vitamin C tablets?

Since all that: Junk is a waste of money, doesn't do anything positive for you except spend your money, why do it? Besides, you don't know what's in any of that stuff, what harm it could possibly do to you, how it could interact negatively with medication or other supplements, etc. Save your money and use it on monitoring strips, healthy food, valid medication, etc. That can help you live better and longer. ...Read more

Currently take metformin 2,000mg daily. Can I take ubiquitous CoQ10, alpha lipoic acid,  GTF chromium & glycinate magnesium supplements with metformin?

Supplements: 27F of unknown medical Hx other than metformin. Wants to know if can take several supplements. ANS. If u need to waste money on unproven supplements that may contain dangerous additives (the are no standards for supplements) then you might consider it. I never recommend them. I would focus on diet & exercise so you don't meet to take metformin either. Get your BMI < 25 & you likely won't need it. ...Read more
