I m 30 years old woman. Is there any supplement I should take in order to be healthy at this age. ?

It depends...: This depends on what your diet is like, exposure to environmental toxins, genetics etc. Vitamins are no substitute for a healthy diet, but I advise a quality multivit,, ideally with natural E (avoid synthetic E) & the 5-MTHF form of folate, (folic acid) without additives like titanium dioxide or polyethylene glycol. Extra Vit D is wise too, depending on how much sun you get, and fish oil if you don't eat fish. ...Read more

My husband age 34 takes  GNC mega man supplement daily once his doc recommended as he had low vitd3 levels n he felt weak is  it a good supplement?

Pretty good but...: Gnc mega men is better than most multivits and is rare in that it does have a good level of d, 1600 iu, it has a nice array of auxiliary antioxidants. But some of ingredients could be better-magnesium oxide is poorly absorbed & i disapprove of titanium dioxide & caramel coloring- while "natural" these are probable carcinogens- so why include them? It's ok but there are better choices. See comment:. ...Read more

My age 26 , I have vitamin B12 deficiency, can I take 1000 mcg vitamin B12 supplement?

Are you vegan?: How do you know you have a deficiency? If your doctor diagnosed, what did the doctor recommend? Why aren't you following that recommendation? Don't overthink it. If you self-diagnosed, the dosage of 1000 mcg is extremely high and unnecessary. I am more concerned why someone your age has such a critical deficiency. Don't overdoes and waste your money. ...Read more
