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

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

Is it ok for a healthy postmenopausal woman to take centrum silver vitamins which contain 8 mg of itron?

Yes it is ok: It would seem reasonable to believe that for a "healthy postmenopausal woman" who does not have a hematological disorder or a problem of iron/hemoglobin metabolism, the benefits of taking your multivitamins and minerals do outweigh the potential risks. You are ok. ...Read more

My husband didn't look at the label when I send him to get a vitamin for me and bought Centrum Silver 50+ I'm 45 can I take it?

Yes: Those are just advertising gimmicks. There is really no medical difference in which supplements you take. More importantly, how is your diet? Always better to consume vitamins from their natural sources. That way you get the fiber and phytochemicals as well. If eating a balanced diet you prob don't need to take vitamins ...Read more

I want to take Centrum Silver multivitamins. The ingredients on the box say it has acacia in in. I have allergies to the acacia tree. Is it the same?

I want to take Centrum Silver multivitamins. The ingredients on the box say it has acacia in in. I have allergies to the acacia tree. Is it the same?

Yes and no, but...: Acacia does come from acaia trees, but even if you are allergic to the pollen of acacia trees it does not mean you'd react to acacia in the vitamin. BUT there are many multivits that are FAR better than Centrum Silver. For my detailed critique of Centrum see http://tinyurl.com/mzrkbx8 For independent ratings of 101 brands of multivits see http://multivitaminguide.org/ Any of the top 35 are great. ...Read more

Taking centrum silver chewable vitamins  for 57 days, feel worse, tired, anxiety, aching all over. Stopped & now feeling better, any thoughts why ?

A couple of thoughts: Normally multiple vitamins are well tolerated if taking according to package instructions. Chewable vitamins must be chewed completely before swallowing. Also, some people don't tolerate certain components in multiple vitamins such as calcium. There could also be adverse interactions if taking other medications such as ibuprofen/naproxen, antibiotics including sulfa, diuretics, retinoids. Stay off ...Read more

I am 16 year old boy soon to be 17, i eat 6 meals per day, is it okay to take an omega 3 pill with a centrum silver multivitamin at same time together?

No problem: In general, your body would take what it needs from these pills and flush the rest out in your urine daily. If you have a good balanced diet, this is probably unnecessary but it shouldn't hurt you. You just make expensive pee. ...Read more
