Any interactions?:ashwagandha, magnesium l threonate,taurate,glycinate, fish oil, cdp choline,acetyl l carnitine,alpha lipoic acid, vitamin d,prilosec
Why Supplements?: Since you're 17 years old, I am concerned that you are spending time and money wasting it on the supplements that you listed. While some of the substances are present in a healthy diet, there is actually no reason you should be taking them in the form of a supplement. You should be getting all the vitamin D you need in a healthy diet, and the other things, except Prilosec, are unproven. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it safe to take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, vitamin d, calcium citrate, multivitamin, l arginine, l lysine, l ornthinine, Prilosec together?
Should be fine: I don't see any significant problems taking all of these supplements. If you have any side effects, however, it may be a challenge to know which is the culprit. Typically, side effects from these are minimal or not existent. If you are taking the prilosec due to the others causing GI complaints, you may want to reconsider this strategy. ...Read more

Wouldn't recommend: Protein supplementation is not the greatest idea in teens. It really is much better for them to get their nutrition through food intake. These supplements are not well regulated and one can never be sure you are taking what they say. Also, protein supplements are stressful to developing kidneys. If you teen is wrestler ,body builder it is best to get the protein with meats, eggs, dairy, nuts. ...Read more

NO: In general, MAO inhibitors refer to specific prescription antidepressant drugs & are highly regulated. Many foods & herbs have mild MAO inhibiting actions, such as carrots, chocolate, coffee, ginger, grape & onions,but these effects are not clinically significant & they don't need to be avoided if on a med that interacts with MAO inhibitors: http://www.botanical-online.com/english/vegetalmaois.htm ...Read more
Increasing HGH with l-lysine, l-arginine, gaba, melatonin. Can i take 3000mg lysine, 3000mg arginine, 5mg melatonin, 3000mg GABA in every night daily?
Why are you doing: This. It is unlikely to do anything to increase your height and may have side effects you wish you did not have. I hope my endocrinology colleagues will weigh in on this one and lay it out straight. You are not going to grow, but your wallet will get thinner. Best wishes. ...Read more
Yes, but not by much: Human growth hormone can be stimulated by a number of ways, but the stimulation will not significantly increase the daily 24hr amount in any given person. Put another way, one may produce a spirt of hgh by taking l-arginine but the additional amount is just a drop in the bucket when compared to the 24hr amount of hgh that the body make. The best way to increase hgh levels is by DX and rx. ...Read more

Could asupplement with aminoacids, vitamins(l-carnitine, l-tartaric acid, potassium chloride, l-leucine, isoleucine, valine, nicotinic)cause damage on brain?
Yes: Of course. Ginseng is a general tonic that can raise testosterone levels and enhance male sexual function. L-arginine is an amino acid with many benefits including raising nitric oxide levels, thus dilating blood vessels and enhancing erections, sometimes called Nature's Viagra. These are often combined (along with other ingredients) in supplements for male health. They can work synergistically. ...Read more
No: No; your height is determined primarily by your parents and grandparents height and is generally ' fixed' @ age 19 in boys and age17 in girls.Older people can " lose" height as they age by chronic osteopenic compression fractures...Bodybuilding can increase muscle mass and tone but not height. ...Read more

Safety unknown: No single company selling those products would experiment on nursing mothers to give us an answer. But logically speaking, those are constituents of our daily foods, mainly animal and plant proteins, so eating nuts, poultry, fish and wheat would suffice, and you don't need to be in doubt till you're done nursing, enjoy your baby ...Read more

Do L-Arginine, L-Ornithine and L-Lysine tablets stunt growth in a 15 year old? Is stacking them just as effective? How much is a healthy amount?Thanks
Amino stacks useless: Arginine and ornithine are nonessential amino acids. In fact your body makes ornithine from arginine. Lysine is an essential AA that MUST come from your diet. The typical healthy teen will see NO benefit from supplements. Arginine can boost growth hormone synthesis/release in the elderly but only at doses 10-20g per day and it only works because the elderly don't make much to start. Eat well not p ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
L-arginine, citruline, ornithine amino acids and safflower together are said to increase blood flow into the pelvis for arousal for women is it true?
No: The first three moieties are part of the urea cycle, which metabolizes ammonia to urea in both the liver and kidney. Safflower, used in chinese medicine to increase blood flow, has never been thoroughly evaluated from a rheologic standpoint, that is, how it impacts human vascular haemodynamics. Kegel exercises, biofeedback, tantric... These may positively enhance enhance pelvic flow. ...Read more

Arginine: ....Is something your body normally makes, but you can be deficient if you don't have enough of the building blocks. Symptoms of deficiency include poor wound healing, hair loss, skin rash, constipation, and fatty liver. There is some evidence it may be useful for claudication (pain in your legs with exercise due to poor circulation). It's used for lots of other things, but without good evidence. ...Read more
unlikely: Assuming that the source of the l-arginines that you are considering are reliable, then this is a basic Amino Acid which should be the same whatever the source. There is always a risk with unregulated products like this that you are getting less than the label says, or some hopefully benign adulterant to save money for the manufacturer. ...Read more
Doubt it: At a listed age of 19, your growth centers are likely closed and no further linear growth would be expected. An x-ray of your wrist and hand could be reviewed for open growth centers, but if they show closure you are finished growing taller. If open, a balanced diet, proper rest and regular exercise will support proper growth. Diet supplements or hormone injections only help those with deficiency ...Read more
Safety, unclear need: L-arginine is a dietary supplement. It is made by the body, but is used as a supplement in various adult disorders. No specific indications have been identified in chidlren and adolescents, and it is a substance that, in overdose, can cause brain edema and even death. Oberdose is easier in children because of their smaller size. So, no clear value and possible risk: not a good combination. ...Read more

Arginine can interact with many different medications, including viagra, (sildenafil) zantac and even over-the-counter drugs. ...Read more
Unknown: All meds & supplements have potential side effects, and usually it's a pretty long list of potential but uncommon side effects. Side effects are not always dose dependent, so even 1 dose can sometimes cause. Just b/c it's a supplement doesn't mean no risk. I discuss w/ my pts about doing a risk-benefit analysis before starting a new tx. ...Read more
Effective for cold: Sores by mouth, if taken early enough, and is an amino acid, so it's relatively safe to take. Seem to be a popular home remedy. However, if you are using for something else, then it may or may not be effective depending on the diagnosis. So, if it's in the groin area, it may not be as effective. Make sure your pcp can check your area of concern to diagnose it and treat it quickly. ...Read more
