Can plexus slim be taken w seaweed nazacort echinachea opc grapeseed garlic Lipitor (atorvastatin) ginger omeprazole fish oil acetyllcartinine & glucosaminecondroit?
Probably: One of the problems with many supplements is that there is little research on safety and effectiveness. Plexus slim has many ingredients; I have reviewed them ; they are all safe and have no known interactions with the things you are taking.

Could these substances(rosa canina l., gycerol, talcum, curcuma longa l., 95%curcumin, capsaicin, polygonum cuspidatum, resveratrol) damage brain?
Possibly capsaicin: The curcumin ; resveratrol are anti-inflammatory ; anti-oxidant with neuroprotective effects. There is a study suggesting capsaicin may damage neurons in 10 day old rats. I know of no evidence it can damage brains in humans; many eat peppers without obvious signs of brain damage but capsaicin might cause mild brain damage in some: http://onlinelibrary.Wiley.Com/doi/10.1002/cne.902960310/abstract. ...Read more

Are there drug/herb interactions taking 30mg escitalopram, 300 mg modafinil and 400mg rhodiola rosea?
Rhodeola Rosea: I would not recommend the combination, since it has MAO (mono amine oxidase) inhibiting properties, which contraindicates combining it with serotonergic agents such as lexapro, (escitalopram) due to potential for serotonin syndrome. Also, no enough scientific evidence to suggest its use to supplement mood elevation. ...Read more
Taking 2.5mg bisoprolol but also take various supplements worried about interactions garlic, folic acid, selenium, cod liver, Q10, evening primrose, vit e.
Sups. No Evidence: Supplements widely promoted, big business, but exempted from clinical trials, even need for honesty/accuracy on labels; see DSHEA Act 1994 which exempted all food supplements, thus no reliable data about group, much less individual benefits & downsides. Carvedilol has better track record than bisoprolol (both with ACEI) for heart function, mortality rates; yet both can ? lung bronchospasm, COPD. ...Read more
Indirectly: There is a substance in grapefruit that disables the enzyme responsible for metabolizing estrogen in our bodies; therefore, eating grapefruit may increase the body's levels of estrogen. Femara (letrozole) is used to inhibit the production of estrogen in the body as a treatment for hormone-sensitive breast cancer. Therefore, eating grapefruit in these circumstances may counteract what you are treating. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No proven benefits: From studies in yeast, sirtuins (sir2 proteins) are believed to have some effects on aging, on cell death, on stress resistance (such as in situations of food scarcity), etc... Researchers are trying to find out if there are anti-aging effects in mammals. Some believe resveratrol activates a sirtuin and possibly extends lifespan, but so far research with mammals has not shown any such benefit. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Very: Resveratrol is derived from the skin of grapes. It is a powerful antioxidant that detoxifies free radicals in the blood, which have an adverse effect on our arteries. It is highly concentrated in liquid or pill or capsule form as opposed to eating lots of grapes or drinking lots of wine. You can by it in any pharmacy it is supposed to make you feel younger & to live longer. ...Read more

Does resveratrol really work? I mean does it really slow aging and if so, by how much and how do you know this for sure?
It is debatable: There is some experimental evidence that it is useful but in humans there is no definite data to support that claim yet. But fruits are good for healthy aging and are encouraged. How much do they prolong life...Not certain but could add 4-5 years if you eat healthy(lots of fruits and vegetables with each meal) and avoid animal fats. ...Read more
Grape but moot point: Currently there is no human clinical outcome data suggesting any benefit from consuming resveratrol as dietary supplement. Instead, focus on eating diverse range of fruits & veggies rather than focusing on one specific one. Check out http://www.quackwatch.com/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/DSH/resveratrol.html for more info on this supplement. ...Read more
Perhaps but unproven: Resveratrol is an antioxidant that reduces inflammation, protects against cancer & may slow aging. A recent study showed those with diets high in resveratrol did not fare better than those with lower levels,but the amount in supplements may help. Studies have not yet proven clinical benefits but research like http://cbsn.ws/TxwanU suggest it's likely beneficial in high doses. It seems safe to try! ...Read more
Of course not: If it were "miraculous", we'd know it. The research piranhas at the nih would have snapped it up -- even when there's no profit to be made, science is driven by strongest of emotions (jealousy) and the secret couldn't be hidden. Despite media claims, really good work on this interesting molecule remains in its infancy -- it's likely to have some real uses, but probably is no magic bullet for any. ...Read more
Still unclear: So there is a ton of crap (excuse my language, but i cannot find another suitable word) regarding resveratrol and gout. There are antedotal reports littering the internet, but following up on those reports leads to dead ends in my opinion. I would say the effects are still unclear, and it does not hurt or help gout based on our current understanding. ...Read more
