S it fine to take glutathione 500mg,milk thistle extract 100mg, alpha lipoic acid 50mg, combined with d alpha tocopheryl acetate 400 iu?
Analysis: Why do you take all these items?. Where did you find such advice? Glutathione is a wonderful anti-oxidant, but does NOT cross into the brain, so of questionable value in bloodstream. Milk thistle extract has questionable benefit in most cases. Alpha lipoic useful in peripheral and central nerve disorders. You are far better off using mixed tocopherols, especially with gamma.

DERMATOLOGISTS: Will taking collagen capsules help with fine lines over time? Ingredients:hydrolyzed marine collagen, elastin polypeptides
I really doubt it.: Protein is digested and absorbed. It's doubtful that a small amount of a particular protein is going to be 'special' compared to a burger. Less collagen, degraded protein loss of subcutaneous fat are aging features that promote crow's feet and specific dietary proteins just aren't going to change any of that. ...Read more

Can any of these supplements help me to ovulate after being off Depo-Provera provera (last shot 8-2-11)? Angelica sinensis, glycyrrhiza uralensis, viburnum opulus, folic acid (125%), apis mellifica, iron (100%), calcium (12%), rehmannia glutinosa, thyroid
There : There is no evidence that any of these supplements can stimulate ovulation. There are no studies that demonstrate that these will help. Most women who go off depo do start ovulating in the next few months. Try staying in bed for 15 minutes after intercourse with your knees up, and be sure you have optimal nutrition. If you don't get pregnant in the next several months then consulting a gynecologist would be reasonable. ...Read more

Unknown. Go natural.: Unless there are specific deficiencies in a woman, going natural is safest. It is not known what happens when a woman takes various drugs or chemicals, nor what is actually in various tablets or potions sold in stores or online. Eating a natural, balanced, healthy diet is safest (one can choose Organic foods if one feels Organic is safer). One can take a trusted brand of a daily prenatal vitamin. ...Read more
Indian brown skin. Uneven skin tone. No acne. Micodrmabrasion, Micronedling, Photofacial, PRP, colagen, hyluronc acid or glycolc peel, whch is better?
Leave it alone: None of these are likely to "help". Please forgive my frankness. Many folks have "poikiloderma", skin of varying colors. If you have freckles and don't want them, a sunscreen may help some. Nobody worth knowing cares whether your skin tone is "uneven". Appearance is about physical fitness and how you carry yourself and interact with others. Focus on what you can manage and you'll look fantastic. ...Read more

Taking glucosamine chondroitin, resveraltrol, collagen, hyaluronic acid for 6 mo. Will it (or additives in it) cause harmful effect on liver?
Probably not: First of all, why are you taking these supplements? If they are high quality, pharmaceutical grade products, they will probably not cause liver damage. My advice is to seek a consultation with a physician who is familiar with vitamins and supplements and come up with a plan to maximize your health. ...Read more

Any side effects of taking a collagen capsule containing hydrolyzed marine collagen and elastin polypeptides? Will it affect the birth control pill?
Is 100mg ubiquinone (normal Coenzyme Q10) equivalent to 100mg ubiquinol ( active form of Coenzyme Q10 )? Thank you
Not as well absorbed: Studies suggest that the blood level of CoQ10 from taking ubiquinol is 1.5 to 8 times greater than taking the same amount of ubiquinone. Thus, one might need to take 150-300 mg of Ubiquinone to get the same benefits of 100 mg of Ubiquinol. See http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2007/jan2007_report_coq10_01.htm for more info. ...Read more

My prenatal vitamins contain 4, 000 iu of vitamin a.
Vitamin a (as palmitate 2, 000 iu, beta-carotene 2, 000 iu). Is this amount safe?
Should be: If it is a recognized prenatal vitamin the people who make it know that the vit a should be present but not too high that is one reason u take a prenatal and not a multivitamin cause multi have too much vit a for pregnancy and any ?S like this should be directed to your obgyn, so make a list so u do not forget during your visits or call in between if necessary. ...Read more
What are the benefits of taking collagen capsules? 4 capsules daily. Hydrolyzed marine collagen and elastin polypeptides.
Not much evidence: There aren't a lot of studies out that have tested the health effects of all these collegen supplements.One study found that it does not really help with bone health,and another showed some preservation of lean body mass in older women but no skin improvement.It seems that elastin skin products have not shown clinically to improve elasticity of the skin but do help the skin hold moisture. ...Read more

PDE-5: These are brand names for products that are not available in the US. However, the first one (Vigoro) seems to be another name for Viagra (sildenafil) which is used to treat pulmonary hypertension and erectile dysfunction. The others appear to be herbs/supplements - so they do not have an approved use as prescription medicine(s). Hope that helps! ...Read more
