Do the herbal based compounds widely advertised for skin tag/mole removal work?

Do the herbal based compounds widely advertised for skin tag/mole removal work?

Herbal mole removal: I think that they are a bad idea. Destroying a lesion without being able to examine it pathologically is bad because sometime the most innocuous looking "moles" can be cancer. An amelanotic melanoma will not have any pigment in it and can look like a small reddish bump. It is unlikely that the creams would adequately remove such a lesion.I have seen cancers in "skin tags" and other unexpected spot. ...Read more

Which multi-vitamin brand is best absorbed? Gnc? Standard process? Advocare?

Which multi-vitamin brand is best absorbed? Gnc? Standard process? Advocare?

Why do you ask?: Somebody else here please correct me if necessary, but i would extremely surprised if this information exists, especially given that each preparation contains many different nutrients each of which is absorbed independent of the compounding. The supplement business is so competitive that each wants to claim (curiously, without having to be truthful) that it offers some advantage. Don't overspend. ...Read more

Is it necessary to take medicine for liver functioning (Himalaya liver 52ds) while taking supplements (whey protein, BCAAs, glutamine, creatine etc)?

Is it necessary to take medicine for liver functioning (Himalaya liver 52ds) while taking supplements (whey protein, BCAAs, glutamine, creatine etc)?

Unnatural substances: Taking multiple substances sold as supplements or body enhancers is unnatural (eating food is natural), and such supplements are not tested for effects and side effects, compared to the testing that is required of real medications. Thus, all sorts of claims can be made by sellers and other people, but in reality nobody knows for sure what good or bad things can happen. As they say, "Buyer beware." ...Read more
