Age and supplements: Good question with lots of answers. More important than supplements would be ensuring you are making healthy lifestyle and behavioral choices. The best way to get any supplements is really in following a healthy and varied diet. That being said, some supplements have good evidence for specific health or treatment issues.

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

I think not, sorry.: At your age all growing is over. you can see a specialist to see if your growth plates have closed but if you went through puberty at 11-16 then you have no growth left. You can probably work on your posture to increase your apparent height. A good chiropractor or PT can help with that. Human growth H is a hormone that can make children grow a few more inches... it would not help at your age. ...Read more

Little benefit: You are most likely to reach your tallest potential height by following a healthy diet, getting appropriate sleep and remaining physically active.Nothing you eat or drink will add inches to the final specified in your genes.Most over 18 have closed growth centers and will not grow taller, a few will grow a little until 20. Supplements only help if you were deficient. ...Read more

Yes: Someone can have an intolerance to such supplements or material added during their conversion to an oral form.Beyond the rare case of intolerance, this is a simple water soluble vitamin that is not stored by the body.What is not used as it passes through, ends up in the urine. It's benefits are questionable, but it should not hurt you. ...Read more

Balanceda diet: A healthy male may only need to supply Vitamin D3, if he is not exposed to adequate sun. In my experience most of my patients are Vitamin D deficient. It would be a good idea to check the levels. A good balanced diet should supply all your needed vitamins. ...Read more

Expectations: Your height is determined by the genetic influences of your parents and your lifestyle/diet/rest/exercise. We expect any female to grow to be the average of her parents height less 5 cm. You grow about 7cm after your first menses.

Diet and muscle mass: To gain weight you have to consume more calories than you are burning. Do this in a healthy way though. Don't choose junk or fast food. Keep a well balanced diet and make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need. Don't cut out exercise as it is very good for you. Weight lifting and other muscle building exercises can help you increase your body mass. ...Read more

Unlikely to happen: If you entered puberty the same time as your friends ; your bone maturity is 19 yo or older there is little you can do to increase your height.A single x-ray of your left hand can be assessed for bone maturity.If bony maturity is more like 15 you might grow an additional couple of inches.Medicines won't help if the growth centers are closed/finished. ...Read more

I don't currently take a multivitamin. Is there any evidence that taking one daily would do me good? I am 48 yr old male in relatively good shape.

MVI (multivitamin) Prevention: There is evidence for a modest benefit for cancer prevention from the long-running physicians's health study. When people do experience benefit from a mvi, (multivitamin) it is usually due to the presence of b vitamins. There is better evidence that mood can be improved and the negative effects of stress can be diminished with an adequate daily intake of otherwise safe, water soluble b vitamins. ...Read more

Dosing: depends on why you are deficient in Vitamin D. Furthermore, the optimal dose is not firmly established. For healthy adults a dose of 600-800 units of Vitamin D3-cholecalciferol should suffice. ...Read more
