Dr. Alvin B. Lin answered:

Can taking pre workout supplements harm your health over long periods?

Maybe (not) . . .

Vitamin
Really impossible to answer b/c dietary supplement industry isn't subject to 3rd party oversight. In other words, they can make just about any claim they want to convince you to purchase their product while they don't have to prove benefit or safety (unless they're caught). So whether it's safe or not is open to debate especially given all the various supplements available.

Don't bother

Healthy_diet
Instead of using pills, try some mixed nuts and organic carrots before your workout. They are healthier and provide protein and carbohydrates

What's a better pre workout supplement, something with yohimbine?

Watch out!

Protein
Yohimbine is a medication that produces vasodilatation. The FDA aproved its use for impotence but not as a pre-workout supplement. Anyway, there are so many OTC products stating that they have yohimbine, but they don't require (for now) FDA aproval. The best supplement for pre-workout is a combination of carbohydrates and proteins taken anytime between 30 minutes to 2 hours before exercise

Will a pre workout supplement called no explode lower sperm count?

NO-Xplode

Sperm
The NO stands for nitrous oxide. There are always a possibility of side effects with workout supplements (They are NOT as closely regulated as medicines are.), but I haven't seen any mention of decrease in sperm count. This supplement is not supposed to be used for long periods of time.

Does the pre-workout supplement NO Explode lower your sperm count?

Possibly

Supplements
Some work out supplements contain steroid like chemicals which may suppress the sperm counts. Be very careful about this. I have seen this happen before.

Dr. Naresh C. Rao answered:

Is pre workout supplements bad for people who have had a bloodclot?

Depends

Blood_clot
Since the supplement industry is not regulated by the FDA, the ingredients in supplements do not necessary have to contain what it claims or more so may have other ingredients not listed. With that said, having a blood clot does preclude you from having supplements that can affect your clotting ability, such as Vitamin K. If you had a clot in the past, it is important to consult your physician.
