Thoughts on fulvic / Humic minerals? Specific products? And how to use for best absorption? Is it safe for children.

Waste of money: If you live in the United States, mineral supplements such as these are unnecessary, expensive, and in some instances even harmful. You would be better off spending that money on healthy, fresh, mostly plant-based foods. I do not recommend them for children either. ...Read more

Every child is different and no one treatment will work for each child, and some children will have a profound change, some a little bit, and some not at all. This makes it hard to do controlled studies, because there is not just one autism. ...Read more

How to use forever pollan bee tablets to gain weight and is it safe?? Thank you

How to use forever pollan bee tablets to gain weight and is it safe?? Thank you

Waste of money!: The only weight worth gaining is muscle. Almost all of us don't need more fat! The only way to gain muscle weight is resistance training (weight-lifting) several days a week for months and months. Otherwise, lift weights regularly 3 times a week, for shorter periods, and your muscles will be toned and you will look excellent! Thin people are the best types to become body builders.

Which is the best food for a bodybuilder who doesn't want to take supplements ? And how to eat it (how much daily) please help

Lean protein: The key is plenty of protein, any source. You can get cheap protein as whey or soy powder, and add it to your normal diet. Most supplements are of little or no value but you'd do well to try creatine for gaining mass. Generally eat healthy, avoiding the very greasy, salty, and sugary stuff. I can't tell you how much as your intake will vary with your aerobic calorie output. Glad you're lifting. ...Read more
