Revital Vitamin Tablets Benefits
Benefits unclear: There is evidence vit e might prevent heart disease, cancer, macular degeneration & dementia but research has given mixed & conflicting results. One problem is many of the studies use synthetic e or just Alpha tocopherol, but only natural mixed tocopherols are likely beneficial. Better evidence for benefits of eating e-rich foods. See http://www. Hsph. Harvard. Edu/nutritionsource/vitamin-e/ & my comment:. ...Read more
If possible, please go to a nearby Library and see the benefits or otherwise. If you have the opportunity to read the benefits from home, that would be easier.

I've been taking a vitamin C tablet once a day to boost my immune system. Is there any benefit to taking it first thing in the morning vs. Before bed?
Ideally 2x/day: I know of no advantage of taking vit. C in morning vs. Evening so either time should be fine. However, our body can not store vitamin c and little of what you take in the morning will still be in your body at nite, so for optimal benefits I advise taking at least 250 mg of vit c both morning ; bedtime.

Vitamins do not: Help w/weight gain. Your diet, exercise level, and your metabolism all determine your weight. Please start by seeing your doc to make sure thyroid and other hormones are in balance. Then see a nutritionist for an appropriate food plan. Good fats like coconut oil are good along w/protein. Exercise will build and define muscle. Please don't define yourself by your weight. ...Read more
Some are, some not: Vitamins tend to be mostly vegetarian, but some contain animal-derived products, especially vitamin a which may come from fish oil. Also, some vitamins are in gelatin-based gel-caps. Read the ingredients and avoid gel-caps. A quality multivitamin will usually state on the label if it is appropriate for vegetarians. ...Read more
Iodine: You are paying to eat dried green-brown seaweed. Kelp is not a vitamin, but it's got plenty of iodine in it, which is good especially if you life in a country where they don't iodize salt or you don't get iodine for whatever reason. Don't spend too much money on this or any other supplement; you're better off especially at your age building physical fitness. ...Read more
Same: Isotonic vitamins = tablet vitamins.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: Our food is not as nutritious as it used to be because of how it its grown, when it is picked and how long it is stored before we eat it. Processed foods are often even less nutritious. A good quality multivitamin can help to make up for some of those deficiences, but does not take the place of a good diet of whole foods, lots of vegetables and fruits with bright colors. ...Read more
Maybe: If you have a known vitamin deficiency, then replacement therapy is good for you. However, very few people in the USA eating anything close to a regular diet have vitamin deficiency. You can ask your doctor to test for specific vitamins, and discuss treatment. For almost everyone else, vitamin tablets are good for the financial health of the drug companies, but do not do much for the consumer. ...Read more
Probably unless...: There's no consensus but I believe the answer is yes unless you have an extraordinarily healthy diet. I don't know about the uk but in the us very few people get the recommended levels (rdi) of vitamins ; minerals from diet; even if they do there's evidence that levels above rdi can help prevent many illnesses. Some studies found little benefit but used poor quality vits. See http://bit. Ly/18xyule. ...Read more

B12: B12 is involved with metabolism and cell replication. If you are low (you don't eat any meat (including fish) or you have a disease that prevents absorption then a supplement can help.

Testing: Some medications can be tested for to assure there is adequate levels in your system. Mostly all drugs are digested and "dissolved" in your "system" and metabolized. Some pills do have an outer coating, but may have a gits (gasro-intestinal timed system) with a small pin-hole in them that slowly releases the drug. These may be visible in your stool, but rest assured the medication is usually out. ...Read more
Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. The dose (read label and check that half or more of the ingredients are several 100 per cent above RDA. Dose more important than a long list. ...Read more

You don't need a prescription for it. Http://tinyurl. Com/ksnwg4y. ...Read more
Can your body become resistant to vitamins, minerals herbs, etc? Could I build up a tolerance to the helath benefits of say garlic? Thanks.
Forgive me...: My sense is that you are beginning to realize that the supplements you have taken are no longer -- or never have -- done all you've been told they will do. Truth is that the health benefits of garlic are minimal -- if they were real, we doctors (who aren't conspirators) would use it. If at your age you are starting to feel well, get a good h&p & basic labs to look for something we can help. ...Read more
Are just vitamins: Prenatal vitamins are just vitamins. If a woman is in good health with good nutrition, the added vitamins from prenatal vitamins are not noticeable to her body. The vitamins do not help a woman get pregnant. The Folic Acid in the prenatal vitamins does help decrease the chance of a certain type of serious birth defect (called a neural tube defect). ...Read more
