Is there an SA option for Gundry MD VITAL REDS which contains polyphenol rich super fruits to improve energy levels and heart health?

Not a medical?: We answer medical questions. While it would be appropriate to answer about the medical properties of Vital Reds I have no way of knowing the policies of a private company and if it ships products overseas. I advise you contact the company about this rather than ask here. It's a decent product but many other companies have similar superfood products so also look for similar products available in SA. ...Read more

What is the recommended daily dosage for taking COQ10 enzyme?

What is the recommended daily dosage for taking COQ10 enzyme?

No official rec but: CoQ10 naturally occurs in every cell of our bodies so it's not considered an essential nutrient & there is no officially recommended dose. However, I advise a healthy person take 50 mg/day of the Ubiquinol form (which is better absorbed) as a preventive anti-aging agent. Those suffering from illnesses like heart disease & diabetes may benefit from 200-300 mg/day. See

For catchup growth to take place, does one need to eat higher than the recommended daily dosages or 100% is fine.

For catchup growth to take place, does one need to eat higher than the recommended daily dosages or 100% is fine.

It's a bit: Light on total calories and protein at least the recommendations for weight stabilization of 10 times your weight in pounds is a bit low for catch up weight/growth. Personally I'd estimate about 25% more but seeing if muscle or fat is accumulating at 1 month and manking adjustments. ...Read more

When you wish: Congratulations on taking up strength training. Arginine is safe, it may help you build some muscle by stimulating growth hormone, and may indeed accent your being vascular though keeping lean and high blood volume by doing a lot of cardio and watching fats and carbs in your food will help more. See whether you look more vascular shortly after taking arginine, and if so, take it before show times. ...Read more

Niacin.: Supplementing with 2000-3000mg of flush free Niacin daily can help to control your cholesterol levels quite nicely, even increasing your HDL and converting your LDL to a less harmful subtype.
