And if there appears a blood like quality to your urine, also take that very seriously, and review this with your doctor. ...Read more

Which multi-vitamin brand is best absorbed? Gnc? Standard process? Advocare?

Which multi-vitamin brand is best absorbed? Gnc? Standard process? Advocare?

Why do you ask?: Somebody else here please correct me if necessary, but i would extremely surprised if this information exists, especially given that each preparation contains many different nutrients each of which is absorbed independent of the compounding. The supplement business is so competitive that each wants to claim (curiously, without having to be truthful) that it offers some advantage. Don't overspend. ...Read more

Prenatal vitamins: When it comes to medications, supplements, nutrition, exercise, etc, it's always best to check w/your obstetrician and/or family doc.
