Nature Made Stress B Complex Reviews
Maybe.: I do not recommend otc supplements for patients who have medical problems. This is because drug store products are inferior quality, which is why they are cheap. Health food store products are better in quality. For best quality, obtain professional products. However, if you have no medical problems it may make no difference. Check company longevity and whether they have any specialty items. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more
The notion of "Vitamin D deficiency" - real, or poo-science? Consistent 25-OH-D3 reading sub 20: Consequential and merits supplements, or copacetic?
Very real, take D3: A very large body of science shows Vit D deficiency is associated with increased risk of many types of cancer, heart disease, neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's & Parkinson's & depression. Low D is associated with increased mortality. People need 5-8000 iu/day of D3 to get optimal levels of 50-80.

Should not, but...: Much to much c! no one needs more than 300mg/day. Vitamin c is not essential for human life. The details of which will bore you. However, people taking the dose you are taking in several studies have greater mortality than those ingesting less. It also will not prevent the cold. Myths abound. Also, not related to induction of a period! ...Read more
Is it essential to take a multi vitamin? I'm currently taking vit d3, magesium & executive b stress formula
Absolutelynot: The majority of studies show no. Enefits from taking multivitamins unless you are deficient! in which case you should first turn to food sources to address the deficiency. Don't buy into the hype about the value of these pills. There is little to no value, and potential harm in taking them. You definitely don't need them at your age and you are probably duplicating between the products you alread. ...Read more

Can manic/paranoid episodes be induced by supplements taken for depression/anxiety, like st. John's wort and vitamin b complex?
NO: But they can increase those symptoms in the primary stage of treatment if that is what they are being used for. Persist with them and the symptoms may well improve. ...Read more
Is b complex vitamin good for cancer patient ? And does surbex xt medicine contain b complex vitamin?
Unknown &controversy: There is not enough science to answer this definitively. I think yes.

See http://cancertherapies.Org/bkinfo.Htm no one has studied b vits alone. Surbex xt has four b vitamins but not the full b complex. ...Read more
Brain food: Certain b-vitamins, for example Folic Acid in the form of l-methylfolate are involved in the production of 3 major neurotransmitters including serotonin, Dopamine and norepinephrine. These chemicals are required to support mood and permit communication between cells in the brain. In some studies, omega3fa's can be effective mood stabilizers when dosed properly. ...Read more
With bipolar ii, adhd, & c ptsd, what additional tests are beneficial? Ie: hormone, neurotransmitter , DNA mutation (mthfr, a1at ...) methylation etc.
Yes: I would definitely check mthfr and comt. Both these are involved in methylation. One is involved in neurotransmitter synthesis, and the other in breakdown. Therefore polymorphisms can impact mood, etc, and if so, vitamins and supplements can help the methylation cycle. I check mthfr in most of my patients. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Root of panic att?Since neurotransmitters are made from aminoacids, supplementing with them should fix it, right?8years on 10 ssri and cbt with 0 result
No: No, supplementing with Amino Acids does not stop panic attacks -- more is happening in panic attacks than levels of neurotransmitters alone. From your note, ssri's have not helped you -- so your doctor needs to consider other treatments. Tricyclics or maoi's may help instead. Also, you & your therapist may need to re-look at the cbt work you've been doing. Adjustments may be needed. ...Read more
Is the nutritional supplement Ultra Potent-C®, made by Metagenics, bioequivalent to vitamin C from food sources?
I can't find isolated vitamin b1 (thiamine) in local drug stores, only a full vitamin b complex. Does any of b vitamins interact with zoloft?
Yes, in fact wise: No prenatal vitamin has adequate levels of vitamin d. Adults in the winter months need to take 5-8000 iu of vit d3/day to achieve optimal levels. Additional b complex is perfectly safe as long as total b6 does not exceed 200 mg (highly unlikely). Prenatal vitamins do not contain essential omega 3 fatty acids, important not only for your health but the health of your baby if you become pregnant. ...Read more
