Adjunct only: This is a mix of vitamins and minerals. If you have anxiety that is making life difficult, your physician can help you get out of or deal with a bad situation, help you to find other ways of thinking / learn new skills, and perhaps offer temporary medicine that actually works. Be brave and best wishes. ...Read more

Is it safe to take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, vitamin d, calcium citrate, multivitamin, l arginine, l lysine, l ornthinine, Prilosec together?

Is it safe to take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, vitamin d, calcium citrate, multivitamin,  l arginine, l lysine, l ornthinine, Prilosec together?

Should be fine: I don't see any significant problems taking all of these supplements. If you have any side effects, however, it may be a challenge to know which is the culprit. Typically, side effects from these are minimal or not existent. If you are taking the prilosec due to the others causing GI complaints, you may want to reconsider this strategy. ...Read more

Low normal: These are within normal limits but whether you need to boost the vit D3 level higher is another issue. I personally would like the 25OH vit D3 level to be between 60-80 for most people for benefits other than just for bone. ...Read more

Which vitamin d should I take to help decrease psoriasis break outs...Vit d 1000..Vit d 2000..Vit d 500 with 1200 calcium..Stores have huge selection?

Be careful.: Regardless of what you have read on "natural health" web sites, there is no credible evidence that oral vitamin d is an effective treatment for psoriasis. High doses can raise your calcium levels to the point where you can develop kidney stones and other serious medical problems. 800-1000 iu is a safe daily dosage to prevent vitamin d deficiency. ...Read more

Ttc, taking vit B6 100mg, 500mg vit c and a mum to be multi vit as luteal phase 9-11 day once pregnant should I stop vit B6 and vit c straight away?

Ttc, taking vit B6 100mg, 500mg vit c and a mum to be multi vit as luteal phase 9-11 day once pregnant should I stop vit B6 and vit c straight away?

Why?: Vitamin b6 and vit. C are totally safe during pregancy. Is strongly advise everyone take at least 1000 mg of vit c 2x/day as a preventive measure and feel it is wise during pregnancy. Your pre-natal will probably provide adequate b6 (though many people benefit from higher doses than many pre-natals supply) so it may not be necessary but there is no need to stop it "straight away.". ...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

If you are otherwise: healthy, why not simply take a good quality multivitamin. It's best to have your vitamin D3 level checked by your doc so you will know if you need to supplement. Many folks need 5K mg but you may need less or none at all. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I am trying to find supplements for sev.Osteoporosis, are vit k2, chia seeds, vit d3, vitamin C magnesium & calcium  safe & beneficial for bones?

Yes: These are good choices. Some calcium & magnesium supps are much better absorbed than others- i like calcium citrate/hydroxyapatite & mag. Taurate/glycinate/citrate. Your dose of calcium & magnesium should be roughly equal. About 5000 units of d is good with 15 mg (not mcg) of vit k2. Consider strontium & boron. See www.Drdach.Com/wst_page6.Html. ...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
