Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?
Yes: These are safe though I wouldn't take them all at once. I advise the multivitamin after breakfast, the probiotic at the start of a meal, the fish oil after lunch or dinner, apple cider vinegar in water separate from meals and the psyllium at bedtime. Some multivitamins are far better than others- see https://drrandybaker.com/2012/11/ and https://www.multivitaminguide.org/best-multivitamin.html ...Read more
Safe and beneficial: The form of streptococcus in many probiotics (and yogurts) is streptococcus thermophilus, considered a friendly bacteria that is a normal part of healthy intestinal flora. This is a very different strain of strep than pathogenic alpha and beta-hemolytic streptococci that cause infections. See http://www.probiotic.org/streptococcus-thermophilus.htm ...Read more

I am using 300 mcg biotin 1 per day.And with this tablet i m taking vitamin B complex, vitamin E 200mg, and multivitamin. Is it ok?
Yes as long as...: That is fine. None of the things you are taking are likely to be toxic as long as the Vit E you are taking is natural with mixed tocopherols; there is evidence synthetic E (dl-alpha tocopherol) is toxic & even natural E should contain mixed tocopherols.Make sure your multivitamin is high quality- see http://bit.ly/18XyuLe & http://bit.ly/1b36cQ0 Make sure you're not taking more than 200 mg of B6. ...Read more
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

What are the benefits of taking collagen capsules? 4 capsules daily. Hydrolyzed marine collagen and elastin polypeptides.
Not much evidence: There aren't a lot of studies out that have tested the health effects of all these collegen supplements.One study found that it does not really help with bone health,and another showed some preservation of lean body mass in older women but no skin improvement.It seems that elastin skin products have not shown clinically to improve elasticity of the skin but do help the skin hold moisture. ...Read more
I take a supplement called oxy powder by ghc. It contains 2746 mg of ozonated magnesium oxides per 4 caps. I take 1 per day. Is this safe?
Should be.: Based on what you shared, i calculate your daily mg supplementation of about 700mg. If your kidney function is normal, this dose of mg shouldn't be an issue. Careful as too much mg can result in diarrhea. Unless you have a medical condition or are on medications that can lead to mg wasting, a healthy well-balanced diet rich in nuts, soybeans, bran should provide plenty of mg for you. ...Read more

No: Krill oil and fish oil are the new snake oil, both are high in omega 3 fatty acids which are extremely fragile. Omega 3 fish oils reduce triglycerides by impairing the liver's ablility to make them. However the oxidative stress caused by fish oil actually raises LDL cholesterol. Some day we may use the phrase "this is just more fish /krill oil" or "here comes the fish/krill oil salesman". ...Read more

Can i take Advocare products (mns, carbease, thermoplus, omegaplus, or spark) while taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (amox tr-k clv 875-125mg)?
Overall fine but: Why do you need to take so many supplements. Be ware about trying to obtain so many nutrients through supplementation. The key to overall good health isn't through an overwhelming supply of supplements. You'll be served better by trying to obtain your nutrients through whole foods. Try to avoid rose hips, willow bark as they do alter Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) levels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Which one tablets are best for hair loss treatement?
1: surbex-z tablets
2: theragran ultra tablets
Neither: See a dermatologist. First determine cause of hair loss. For a man you may get prescription finasteride. 5 mg is cheap & a pill cutter can be used to cut it into 4 parts to take 1 piece a day. 1mg Finasteride (propecia) is expensive. Men or women can get Minoxidil otc. The 2% is nearly as effective as the 5%, but cheaper(about 4$ per month). If you buy the brand rogain it costs more for the same t. ...Read more
