Could you take prenatal vitamins that contain biotin, choline, inositol, and fumaric acid name of vitamin brand nordic berries?

Could you take prenatal vitamins that contain biotin, choline, inositol, and fumaric acid name of vitamin brand nordic berries?

I do not: Like the formula. They contain 9 grams of carbohydrate and the amount of thiamin (as are the doses of all the vitamins) is too low to metabolize that amount of carb. You can look it up on line. This expresses an incredible ignorance of industry in vitamins and foods. In pregnancy, first you need a pristine diet and the vitamin supplementation should be ordered by your ob/gyn. ...Read more

Ginkgo biloba, calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin d3, biotin, folic acid, and fish oil, are these good to take?

Only...: if you are interested in giving your money away to the makers and sellers of these supplements. These products are usually worthless for anyone on most American diets. Save your money for a gym membership and routine exercise. ...Read more

Overdose of which vitamin is dangerous vita, vitd, vitb1, folic acid?

Overdose of which vitamin is dangerous vita, vitd, vitb1, folic acid?

A & D- very rare: One can only overdose on fat soluble vitamins (a, d, e) except vit. B6 (which should be limited to 250 mg/day). But it takes huge amounts to overdose. The average adult would need to take about 2 million units of a to overdose, or 200, 000 iu/day for several months. Vit d toxicity is rare unless one takes at least 40, 000 iu/day for months.

My vitamin supplement has 12, 500iu of vitamin a. With 10, 000iu beta-carotene and 2, 500iu palmitate. Is that a safe amount?

Yes: One can safely take very large amounts of beta carotene as it is non-toxic. One can suffer adverse consequences by taking more than 10, 000 iu of the palmitate form a day though toxicity is rare unless one ingests at least 25, 000 iu.Day for several months so 2, 500 iu is quite safe.

Vitamin d deficient, 25hydroxy test result 5.8. What brand supplement and dosage is recommended?

Vitamin d deficient, 25hydroxy test result 5.8. What brand supplement and dosage is recommended?

Vitamin D3: Any brand will do. If you have access to Costco, buy pills of 5000 units and take one every day for three months. After that reduce the dose to about 2000 units/day. it may be beneficial to add a multivitamin to your daily routine. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Can i take multivitamins that contains Vit.B1 Vit.B2 Vit.B6 Vit.B12 Nicotinamide Calcium Pantothenate and Vit.C while pregnant?

Can i take multivitamins that contains Vit.B1 Vit.B2 Vit.B6 Vit.B12 Nicotinamide Calcium Pantothenate and Vit.C while pregnant?

Yes, however...: Every prenatal multivitamin contains all of those and more so this is definitely safe. However, the most important vitamin in a prenatal is Folic Acid (ideally as folinic acid or L-5-MTHF), esp. important in the first few weeks of pregnancy. Also eat greens and beans/lentils for folate (folic acid). ...Read more

Is prenatal, folic acid, vitamin a, fish oil, biotin and collagen good to take?

Yes but caution re:A: I'm confused, as the info above says you're a 20 yo male, but most males don't take prenatal vits, if you're male i wouldn't take a prenatal, as they often have iron, which 20 yo guys shouldn't take. If you're female, why did you say you're male?If you might become pregnant take no more than 10, 000 iu total of vit a/day-see http://www.Care2.Com/greenliving/is-vitamin-a-safe-for-pregnant-women.Html. ...Read more

Is safe to take in combination: Zinc, Calcium complex, Vitamin C, Flax seed oil and Whey protein?

Is safe to take in combination: Zinc, Calcium complex, Vitamin C, Flax seed oil and Whey protein?

Those supplements: in combination are not a problem. Perhaps a more important question would be why do you take them all? If you have health concerns please see your doc or a nutritional consultant. Split vitamin C up into a.m. and p.m. doses because it only lasts about 12 hours in body. Peace and good health. ...Read more

My prenatal vitamins contain 4, 000 iu of vitamin a. 
Vitamin a (as palmitate 2, 000 iu, beta-carotene 2, 000 iu).  Is this amount safe?

1 doctor agreed:
Does mvi (multivitamin) hava all vitamins in it and enough vitamin b?

Depends!: The answer to your question depends upon which MVI (multivitamin) to which you are referring. They're all different so you'll need to read the labels. The more difficult question to answer is how much is enough b vitamins. There's the rda or something like that. It's based upon minimum amount to prevent disease rather than amount necessary for optimal health. So the answer remains controversial. ...Read more
