Does Fish Contain Calcium

Calcium: Dairy is a good source do calcium, and even if you can't drink milk, then you can try some yogurt. It is present in some vegetables, but you would need to eat lots.

Some: The fish oil and prenatals are fine together. Ask your doctor how much calcium and vitamin d you need based on your diet. It may be worth getting a vitamin d level. If you need to take the additional calcium, it's probably best to take it apart from the prenatals, which also usually contain calcium. ...Read more

Can you explain if it's safe to take C4 extreme with multivitamin, fish oil and calcium supplement?
C4: C4 is a supplement mixture with no data to support its use. Multivites, fish oil and calcium supplements have at least some reason to think they will be a positive action. I personally wouldn't recommend taking C4 but have no more data support not recommending it than there is to say it is beneficial. Eat a good diet and have a good exercise program, the supplements might or might not help. ...Read more

I take calcium, magnesium, hair/nails/skin vitamin, iron, and fish oil vitamin. How am I supposed to feel and how to I know they are working?
Hard to know:
If you have had a deficiency of one of these vitamins or minerals, your symptoms should gradually improve- hair/nails will take a while because of slow growth.
If taking for general health, it is certainly tricky to know because the goal is to not develop a condition. So, if you don't develop a condition, is it because the supplement helped or if you wouldn't have got it anyway. Good luck! ...Read more
I'm in my mid 30s and take vitamins such as calcium magnesium zinc and fish oil on a daily basis. are there any potential risks? is it safe?
Be careful with zinc: Zinc can be helpful in maintaining your healthy immune function, but too much zinc can actually decrease your immune function. Excess zinc can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. It can also interfere with the absorption of other essential minerals, particularly magnesium and copper. A copper deficiency can inhibit the transport of iron in the body and result in anemia. The upper limit is 40mg/d. ...Read more

Wear your seatbelt and don't own a gun. ...Read more
I'm 10th week pregnant, my doctor prescribe me calcium, iron once/day & Omega3-plus (fish oil 1000mg & wheat germ oil 100mg) once/day. Is that safe?
Not everyone needs fish oil, and if taking fish oil, a quality supplement is important, as poor quality supplements may be contaminated by mercury and other toxins. If in doubt, take flax oil instead. Magnesium is also important, as well as iodine and methylfolate.

Are there any interactions between nutritional supplements like a good multivitamin, fish oils, calcium/magnesium, or joint support like glucosamine?
Of course, complex &: Controls are internal but only partially understood. As Soul↔Mind↔Brain↔Body creatures, not invented by MDs, issues only partially understood. Thus people promote importance of simple external things they can sell, often without consideration of individual situation or any relevant double-blind, prospective placebo controlled clinical trial data. Why? Because trials are expensive & might backfire? ...Read more
Is it ok to take multi-vitamin, b-complex, vitamin A, calcium, and fish oil together? Will it help to boost my immune system?
Some advice: If you take a multivitamin you do not have to take b complex or vitamin A. It's actually unhealthy to take too much vitamin A. Fish oil in proper doses is antiinflammatory and does affect blood lipids, but has not been shown to reduce heart attacks. None "boosts" the immune system. ...Read more

Ca and D: Why are you taking all that junk? What do you think it will do for you? How will you know if it's working? What deficiency are you treating or what disease are you trying to prevent? There's no scientific evidence that any of that will help you except for good calcium in your diet and about 2000 units of d a day. Don't get your medical info from tv, friends or the internet. ...Read more
