See a reputable endocrinologist. ...Read more

But not on real research because real research is hard to do and is expensive to do). So, with supplements, nobody really knows the full effects. ...Read more
Ltyrosine, biotin, prozac, (fluoxetine) iron, turmeric, omega3 f/o, coffee, calcium, ginkgo, & g kula good or bad mix?

There's little or no proof that their claims are true, unless there is real, scientific research. ...Read more
