Glutathione Peroxidase Antioxidant
Should one on chemo (xeloda+eloxatin+zometa) take multivitamins, calcium, antioxidants, resveratrol, digestive enzymes, fish oils, curcumin etc?
Xeloda-oxali: You may want to stop your multivitamins while you are on Xeloda as Folic Acid may exgerate side effect of xeloda. You also need to have your vitamin d level checked and take a supplement if the level is low as vitamin d deficiency may affect the response to chemotherapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. See holistic doc ...Read more
S it fine to take glutathione 500mg,milk thistle extract 100mg, alpha lipoic acid 50mg, combined with d alpha tocopheryl acetate 400 iu and fish oil?
Not fine: Every single one of these is a waste of money. Some con-man is stealing your money. There is NO BENEFIT from any of them. ...Read more
Partly: High homocysteine is commonly due to methylation insufficiency. Folate (folic acid) is just one cog in the machinery. Other factors include magnesium, b12, zinc, b6. Lead toxicity can impair methylation. Use the best active form of folate (folic acid) which is l-methylfolate (folic acid). ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Which ingredient is the best way fight wrinkles? Retinol, peptides, collagen, stem cells, plancenta, amino acids or vitamin C
Growth factors: We have known since the 70s that retinoids and retinols are great collagen stimulators (which equals wrinkle fighters). In this century, we developed collagen growth factors which are derived from actual human skin and are necessary for collagen to thrive, thus reducing and eliminating wrinkles. Note i did not say "appearance of wrinkles". Skinmedica is my favorite product to contain these. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout?
Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?
None will effect gou: Gout is related to URIC ACID and PURINES, not amino acids or protein supplements. BUT, since everything you mention is a complete waste of money, why bother to ask? There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...Read more
Skin Whitening: Glutathione and vit c are safe antioxidants, but skin whitening effects are quite variable. Only small pilot studies are available for this kind of use. http://tinyurl.com/k3rkav9 these supplements can be very expensive, and deliver little results. Why do you want to whiten your skin? All colors have beauty -- but some cultures judge on superficial reasons, making us feel inferior when we're not. ...Read more
A & D- very rare: One can only overdose on fat soluble vitamins (a, d, e) except vit. B6 (which should be limited to 250 mg/day). But it takes huge amounts to overdose. The average adult would need to take about 2 million units of a to overdose, or 200, 000 iu/day for several months. Vit d toxicity is rare unless one takes at least 40, 000 iu/day for months. See http://emedicine.Medscape.Com/article/819426-overview. ...Read more
Elevated: Hi. In the labs I know, those levels would be above normal, indicating an autoimmune process in the thyroid. They do not imply anything about thyroid function, and can be seen elevated in hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and with normal thyroid function. If your thyroid function is abnormal, those antibodies would imply an autoimmune etiology. ...Read more
Would standard process adrenal supplements (drenatrophin pmg and adrenal desiccated) affect labs – cmp, tsh, free t3, (liothyronine) free t4?
Adrenal supplements: 46F asks about lab effects of adrenal supplements on CMP,TSH,FT3 and Free T4. This has likely never been studied as there is no regulation of adrenal supplements & makers can put anything in them until a bunch gets sick & reported to FDA. I would avoid these unless you need to waste money. I would also avoid a Dr who prescribes them. But need more information. Consult with me. ...Read more
Can daily doses of vitamin c, selenium, & folic acid improve the body's defenses against hpv? What about a decaffeinated green tea extract supplement?
Probiotics gives lactobacillus acidophillus & bifidobacterium. Whey: beta lactoglobulin & alpha lactalbumin. Can both provide similar benefits?
No: Probiotics and whey provide different benefits. They both have "lacto" in their names, which may be the source of your confusion. Lacto means related to milk. Lactobacillus is a bacteria that can grow in dairy products. Whey is the thin, clear liquid that is left when milk has curdled; it is high in protein. Probiotics are good for intestinal health. Whey is primarily a protein source. ...Read more

Important question: Free radicals are produced by oxidative stress, which happens during stress, metabolism, sickness, and eating certain kinds of food.

NO: In general, MAO inhibitors refer to specific prescription antidepressant drugs & are highly regulated. Many foods & herbs have mild MAO inhibiting actions, such as carrots, chocolate, coffee, ginger, grape & onions,but these effects are not clinically significant & they don't need to be avoided if on a med that interacts with MAO inhibitors: http://www.botanical-online.com/english/vegetalmaois.htm ...Read more
