New chapter every man multivitamin made w/ organic vegies & herbs, effect the effectiveness of cialis?

New chapter every man multivitamin made w/ organic vegies & herbs, effect the effectiveness of cialis?

Schizandra berry: Out of the ingredients in your vitamin, schizandra berry could potentially cause an interaction with cialis. There is mixed information about its effects on the liver system that metabolizes Cialis -- some sources say it inhibits this, and in other cases it may induce them. Because of this, i suggest caution in using this combination. There are other good vitamins without the herbal components. ...Read more

Yes! Also...: Congratulations! i believe anyone wanting optimal health should avoid gmo's but as you are learning, it's not easy! even most supps contain gmo's; new chapter is gmo-free ; makes quality products- for a list of others see http://www.Nongmoproject.Org/find-non-gmo/search-participating-products/?Catid=25 i also like the synergy company, not on that list.

Dietary supplement: The food ; drug administration (fda) does not approve of any dietary supplements, nor is there any need to prove safety ; efficacy prior to marketing w/any number of miraculous claims. In fact, there is no mandatory 3rd party oversight.

Parents can continue providing supplements to their child if they sign a waiver. http://tinyurl.com/ksfaxut safe supplements from home will be far less expensive ; could be better quality than provided by the hospital anyway. :-). ...Read more

Can I take vitafusion brand prenatal, and nature made brand vitamin c and spring valley brand biotin together everyday?

Can I take vitafusion brand prenatal, and nature made brand vitamin c and spring valley brand biotin together everyday?

Probably: I can't really answer about the safety of taking those specific brands together because we really don't have enough information to accurately compare one brand against another.Manufacture of vitamins/supplements is not regulated; often they don't measure up to the label. OK to take prenatals, Vit C and biotic together; not sure you need last two.I would identify one "good" brand and buy/take those ...Read more

Are multi vitamins good?

Are multi vitamins good?

Once daily is fine: If a person has knowledge of nutrition and has a very balanced diet, then he or she may not need to take a daily multivitamin because his foods contain enough. I recommend each person take a multivitamin because many people don't have a truly balanced diet. Some people also need extra vitamin d, calcium, folate, omega3, etc..., depending on individual issues. Generally, there are no side effects. ...Read more

Could you take prenatal vitamins that contain biotin, choline, inositol, and fumaric acid name of vitamin brand nordic berries?

Could you take prenatal vitamins that contain biotin, choline, inositol, and fumaric acid name of vitamin brand nordic berries?

I do not: Like the formula. They contain 9 grams of carbohydrate and the amount of thiamin (as are the doses of all the vitamins) is too low to metabolize that amount of carb. You can look it up on line. This expresses an incredible ignorance of industry in vitamins and foods. In pregnancy, first you need a pristine diet and the vitamin supplementation should be ordered by your ob/gyn. ...Read more

Want to take supplement for vision health. Areds2? Have floaters, dry eye & ocular migraine. Take Carlson finest fish oil daily +multi vitamin.

Want to take  supplement for vision health.  Areds2? Have floaters, dry eye & ocular migraine. Take Carlson finest fish oil daily +multi vitamin.

Good diet: If your diet is deficient in green and red veggies, 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zea xanthine is good. The AREDS2 formulation is good for preventing intermediate dry macular degeneration from progressing to the wet form. You don't need it if you don't already have macular degeneration. Omega 3 is good for dry eye and depression. Multivits are worthless if you have a reasonable diet. Best wishes. ...Read more

Are there any over-the-counter prenatal vitamins or regular vitamins with quatrefolic?

Folic acid, sure!: Otc prenatal vitamins containing Folic Acid are available. I am not sure about 'quaterfolic'. The otc prenatals often contain only 800 mgs. Of Folic Acid and 1000 mgs is recommended to avoid neural tube defects in the fetus. That dosage is available by rx. ...Read more

Eye/Vision:I am about ready to take AREDS2 for dry AMD. Other companies add omega 3 to original B&L clinical trial formula.Stay with AREDS2 or change?

Check pricing: AREDS2 has proven value for slowing the progression of dry AMD. Omega 3 does not although it might help with eye dryness. Check out the extra cost of the AREDS2 with omega 3 and see if Omega 3 supplements alone add less cost. You might save money although the benefits for macular degeneration are doubtful. ...Read more

Is it essential to take a multi vitamin? I'm currently taking vit d3, magesium & executive b stress formula

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 G6PD deficient kids under 5 take multi vitamin supplements? Are all vitamins safe for such kids?

Can G6PD deficient kids under 5 take multi vitamin supplements? Are all vitamins safe for such kids?

Standard types safe: The standard types of multi-vitamins or multi-vitamins plus minerals are as safe for children with G6PD deficiency as they are for non-G6PD-deficient children. If unusual, non-standard doses are used, then nobody really knows how safe or unsafe those supplements would be. Thus, one should stick with standard dosing and reputable brands. ...Read more
