Are there any interactions between nutritional supplements like a good multivitamin, fish oils, calcium/magnesium, or joint support like glucosamine?
Of course, complex &: Controls are internal but only partially understood. As Soul↔Mind↔Brain↔Body creatures, not invented by MDs, issues only partially understood.

Fish has traces of heavy metals like mercury & pcb's, dioixins etc. Choose a fish oil purified via pharmaceutical-grade molecular distillation & esterified to make more digestible, ideally assayed by 3rd parties.

Unlikely, but...: When you eat say, steak, your stomach chops the protein into amino acids. These are used by your body. If you add Amino Acids to your diet, will this help? No one knows for sure. There's lots of "folk" impressions that they will (these ought not be dismissed out of hand, nor believed uncritically).
