Keeping in mind the 1. actual Amount of zinc in a zinc supplement and the 2. absorption rate, can I say body gets much lower than the labelled dosage?

I am currently taking abilify (aripiprazole). 1 mg evey other day. I want to start taking a supplement called acetyl-l-carnitine to help with focus and mind energy.?

I am currently taking abilify (aripiprazole). 1 mg evey other day. I want to start taking a supplement called acetyl-l-carnitine to help with focus and mind energy.?

Might also try...: Acetyl-l-carnitine is a very safe naturally-occurring substance that your own body produces & has no known interactions with abilify (aripiprazole). It may even help reduce toxicity from abilify (aripiprazole). There is evidence that vitamin c, vitamin e, manganese and b vitamins may protect against tardive dyskenesia, a rare but serious side effect. I also advise very low doses of lithium for those on abilify (aripiprazole), see comments:. ...Read more

I know it's not as cool as popping a pill but these things are what matter. ...Read more

Are brain supplement pills any good for you? Does it even help?

Are brain supplement pills any good for you? Does it even help?

VERY SKEPTICAL: Many preparations are sold in local vitamin stores, and online from health sites. Do not really find any rationale for any of the brain supplements, and most of these products are not only bogus, but may not even contain the purported ingredients when measured (see consumers union re gingko). Would advise saving your money! ...Read more

Can taking supplements help the brain, or actually do the reverse?

Can taking supplements help the brain, or actually do the reverse?

But disentangling adequate research from hype is an herculean task. Most doctors probably have their favorites, but both curiosity and caution is needed. ...Read more

How do you even know that what is listed on the label is even inside the bottle?

Brain power: Possibly vitamin b12. However, my best recommendation for a healthy brain is a balanced nutrition including vegetables and avoidance of excessive carbohydrate or processed sugars. Exercise, maintain normal weight, avoid alcohol, do not smoke, sleep well. Keep your mind socially active. Engage in conversations with others.

Are there any proven supplements that would be good for brain regeneration?

Are there any proven supplements that would be good for brain regeneration?

Not really, but: We do have some knowledge of aging, and when we get older, brain levels of both folate (folic acid) and Cyanocobalamin drop, along with our ability to control oxidative events. So, theoretically the medical food cerefolin-nac, might provide some brain support. Also, might focus on diet, exercise, lack of smoking, and general good health, as this may return dividends in your 70's and 80's. ...Read more

As I am not very familiar with a-brain, I can only say "take such things at your own risk." if you are concerned about fatigue or brain fog and the like, there are many other things to consider as well. I'd make an appt to talk with a holistic-minded doc about your concerns. ...Read more

Why undiagnosed?: If brain tumor, you would prefer naturally masking thr pain till your head explodes? Or if you just needed a new pair of glasses, you'ld rather swallow $100.00 of some root? If you have tried doctors without relief, find yourself, another doctor or ask your parents, or grand parents what to do. ...Read more

Is there a supplement to reduce heavy metals in the body, (due to drugs)naturally and without side effects on brain and health? What it have to contain?

Is there a supplement to reduce heavy metals in the body, (due to drugs)naturally and without side effects on brain and health? What it have to contain?

Chelation therapy: The entire concept of chelation therapy, is controversial as far as allopathic doctors (MD'S & DO's) are concerned. The idea that minute amounts of toxic heavy metals can somehow be bound out of the body without affecting other minerals & nutrients seems to be a chemically far-fetched idea. Your body has its own NATURAL approach to chelation & I believe in Mother Nature as being the BEAST! ...Read more
