Can zinc be taken with b complex vitamin?

Can zinc be taken with b complex vitamin?

R u zinc deficient?: Often if someone is supplementing with zinc, they need to see what their copper levels are too, since copper is supplemented at 1/10 the dose of zinc, and often what you find in your multivitamin can be sufficient. That goes along with B vitamins. So, there shouldn't be a problem if taking them together too. Have a SpectraCell micronutrient panel done to see if you need all that zinc first. ...Read more

Can a multivitamin, calcium and iron supplement all be taken together?

Can a multivitamin, calcium and iron supplement all be taken together?

Vitamins: Yes, you can but there will be interactions. This is one of the issues with multivitamin and mineral preparations and why getting your nutrients from regular food is best. Just one example of interactions: all minerals with a chemical 'double plus' like calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and copper get absorbed through the same channel and same area of the small intestine. Absorption of one will block. ...Read more

Would taking a vitamin b supplement with a centrum tablet cause problems?

Would taking a vitamin b supplement with a centrum tablet cause problems?

Unlikely: All the vitamins in the b group are water soluble. What your body doesn't use immediately, it tends to wash out in the urine fairly quickly, so it's pretty hard to take a toxic dose of any of these except b6 which can cause neuropathy if taken in large doses over a long period of time. Bottom line: unless you're taking handfuls of b6 with your centrum, problems are unlikely. ...Read more

Is it okay to take vitamin d supplements along with multivitamins?

Is it okay to take vitamin d supplements along with multivitamins?

YES- highly advised: The average multivitamin has 400 iu of vitamin d. Many experts feel it is optimal to achieve a vitamin d level of at least 45 ng/dl. Most adults need to take 4000-5000 units a day to achieve these levels, so taking 4000-5000 units plus a multivitamin is wise. Toxicity won't occur with 10, 000 units or less/day.

Would it be a good idea to take b-12, vitamin C and an iron supplement everyday?

Would it be a good idea to take b-12, vitamin C and an iron supplement everyday?

Probably not: The only people who need B12 supplements are the rare people with pernicious anemia, who can't absorb B12 in food, or people with very unusual and restrictive diets. There's no harm in taking 500-1000 mg of vitamin c each day, but not much evidence that it helps. Men should almost never take iron. Women who are menstruating can benefit from it to prevent anemia. ...Read more
