What is the difference between dry vitamin and the softgels?

What is the difference between dry vitamin and the softgels?

Only the "carrier": Vitamins can be foul-tasting, so manufacturers sometimes make the tablets a chewy tasty gel, a sugary chewable tablet or candy-taste liquid (children's vitamins), or just coat the tablet with a sweet or "protective" no-taste shell. The important stuff inside--the actual vitamin (s)--are the same regardless of carrier! ...Read more

Can you tell me what to do if I chewed a benzonatate softgel?

Can you tell me what to do if I chewed a benzonatate softgel?

Should be fine: This can potentially cause an overdose by releasing too much medicine at once. Especially in kids or if lots of capsules are chewed at once. You will likely have numbing of the mouth and throat. Avoid eating/swallowing until the numbness wears off, as this could cause aspiration. Systemic signs of overdose: confusion, sedation, hallucinations. If this hasn't happened yet, you are probably fine. ...Read more

If I were to squeeze the contents of biotin softgels out and put directly to the hair I want to grow, would that prove successful or is it a bad idea?

If I were to squeeze the contents of biotin softgels out and put directly to the hair I want to grow, would that prove successful or is it a bad idea?

Not likely to help: I doubt this would help much but it wouldn't be harmful. If one is deficient in biotin, taking it internally helps hair growth but biotin deficiency is rare. Many shampoos have biotin added to it but I don't know of any research showing it helps to apply topically. It might be easier to add a few biotin softgels to your shampoo. It's safe to try.

I am taking one 250 mg softgel of magnesium daily? I heard is good for patient with IBS like me. Is this is good or healthy?

I am taking one 250 mg softgel of magnesium daily? I heard is good for patient with IBS like me. Is this is good or healthy?

Probably good: Magnesium deficiency is very common; it is most likely the most underdiagnosed electrolyte deficiency in medical practice. That said, taking too much magnesium can cause diarrhea and abdominal pain. I recommend magnesium glycinate because it caused less intestinal upset than magnesium citrate or oxalate. Start with a low dose and gradually work your way up. ...Read more

Both Eckhart Corpn's Vitamode & Tishcon Corp's Stay-Well UBIQUINOL 100mg prescribes 1-2 softgels daily with meals. At age 67 do I take 1 or 2 per day?

Both Eckhart Corpn's Vitamode & Tishcon Corp's Stay-Well UBIQUINOL 100mg prescribes 1-2 softgels daily with meals. At age 67 do I take 1 or 2 per day?

Take 2 unless...: This is a case where more is better, so I advise 2 a day for greater benefits. The only reason to take 1 would be financial; if you can't afford 2 a day one will still help.

Does superior amino 2222 softgels cause acne????

Does superior amino 2222 softgels cause acne????

It shouldn't: The whole idea of taking amino acid in soft gel capsules is so hokey and scientifically laughable that it makes me wonder what's really in them. If acne's flaring, try a salicylic acid wash once daily, and remember that other things -- especially "gym protein fitness shakes" may be spiked with anabolic steroids, which will do more than give you acne. ...Read more

All the same, I would discard those and get some new supplements. ...Read more

When I take the tablet prenatal vitamin my urine turns yellow, but when I take the softgel prenatal vitamin my urine is normal. Why which is better?

When I take the tablet prenatal vitamin my urine turns yellow, but when I take the softgel prenatal vitamin my urine is normal. Why which is better?

Whole Food Diet: You've just demonstrated the problems with taking vitamins- Except for Vit's A, D, E & K which are stored in fat, most vitamins are 'water-soluble' and not stored. So, we have the healthiest toilets in the world! Don't worry, you'll get enough of the nutrients either way/pill- but please eat a 'who;e food' based diet- your body will absorb what it needs, when it needs it, never too much or little! ...Read more

Is there a best time in a day to take a fish oil softgels and grape seed extract capsules?

Is there a best time in a day to take a fish oil softgels and grape seed extract capsules?

Why taking?: The real questions is why are you taking them in the first place? You would be better off getting your fish oil from wild salmon for a number of reasons including vitamin d, healthy saturated fat, astaxanthin, etc. Grape seed extract can be found in grapes. You need these products if you eat right. As to your specific question, any time of day is fine, but earlier is better. ...Read more

A: A common injury is to the ac joint, where the joint at the end of a collarbone is injured and with overhead motion or bringing the arm across the body the joint "pops". Another thing that can "pop" is a tendon on the front of the shoulder joint. An evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon who cares for shoulder problems might be warranted. ...Read more

Hello, I have Nutrilite heart health omega-3 supplement, but It says to take 3 softgels per day before meals. Can I take all three softgels at once?

You Like Fish Burps?: Better to split them up. Better absorbed with food. If you don't eat three meals a day then take two with one meal and one with another. But in this case food will help. Or, take the third with a healthy snack. Taking all three at once won't hurt but you want to get your money's worth, right? Also, if you eat some salmon that day, you can skip the supplement. The "real" thing is always better ...Read more
