B complex vitamins forbrain energy?

B complex vitamins forbrain  energy?

Not likely unless...: Unless you're truly deficient, it's not likely that you'll find much benefit from b complex vitamins. Sure we look for B12 & folate (folic acid) deficiency in alzheimer's dementia, but I have yet to correct someone's levels & return their thinking process. If you drink alcohol to excess & forgo proper balanced nutrition, you can run low on b vitamins for which extra might be useful but this is pretty rare. ...Read more

Multi vitamin, fish oil, gingko biloba and l-theanine. Would these supplments be good for me?

Any interactions?:ashwagandha, magnesium l threonate,taurate,glycinate, fish oil, cdp choline,acetyl l carnitine,alpha lipoic acid, vitamin d,prilosec

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 more

Are jamieson b complex 100 mg too much?

For what condition?: Jamieson's b complex 100 mg is a timed-release product. B vitamins are also water-soluble, so that any excess your body does not need will be excreted. Taking vitamin b6 (pyridoxine) at 1-6 grams (not milligrams as in this preparation) per day over many months can cause a sensory neuropathy. For most people, the 50mg b complex would be enough -- if you have poor diet & stress, maybe need more. ...Read more

Which supplement is more important bcaa's or glutamine?

Which supplement is more important bcaa's or glutamine?

You flunked the quiz: If you're a healthy young person you get all the BCAAs you need from diet. Glutamine isn't an essential AA. You make all the glutamine you need from glutamate which is made from alanine or aspartic acid. If you consume glutamine you just synthesize less. Excess AAs are burned as fuel & excreted as waste. So there you'll stand with your fly open literally watching your money go down the toilet. ...Read more

Can zinc be taken with b complex vitamin?

R u zinc deficient?: Often if someone is supplementing with zinc, they need to see what their copper levels are too, since copper is supplemented at 1/10 the dose of zinc, and often what you find in your multivitamin can be sufficient. That goes along with B vitamins. So, there shouldn't be a problem if taking them together too. Have a SpectraCell micronutrient panel done to see if you need all that zinc first. ...Read more

Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout? 
Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement  safe for gout users?

There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...Read more
