What to do if i heard that there's a food supplement / vitamin that you can take which will prevent hot flushes. What is it?

Black cohosh, soy: Black cohosh is an herb and is the principle ingredient in the various menopausal herbal preparations. Increased soy in your diet might also help. These are not particularly potent and may help, but they will not "prevent" hot flashes. ...Read more

I'm an athlete taking  Accutane(40mg) and I know i can't have any other vit A supplements but what about creatine ,bcaa and that kinda of stuff?

Accutane&supplements: I am sure your doctor told you before prescribing the Accutane, to avoid any other supplements. This is because you do not know what other inert things they contain. I would recommend putting off using any other supplements until you are done with Accutane. ...Read more

Healthy diet: It's good that you are motivated. At your age, we prefer that you get all your nutrients, minerals, vitamins from food instead of through a supplement. Start by talking to a nutritionist. He/she will form the basis for what you need to know about healthy diet. Get a personal trainer to start a safe, exercise regimen. Good luck. ...Read more

None of the above: Maintain your health and your penis health will follow. Exercise, don't smoke and take care of any metabolic condition you may have, such as diabetes, cholesterol problems, and hypertension.

Is it safe to take abc plus multivitamins supplements (100 tablets) . And is it right that it shouldn't be taken in hot weather ? Thanks in advance

Better choices: It will probably help more than hurt but there are much better multivitamins available. I am not a fan of it because it has synthetic vit e, which is appears harmful, & toxic additives like titanium dioxide & artificial colors. See http://www.Multivitaminguide.Org/ for independent ratings of 101 different brands- any in the top 40 are great! and no reason not to take vitamins in hot weather. ...Read more
