Can I take these vitamins together: fish oil and calcium/magnesium with vit d and prenatal vitamins?

Can I take these vitamins together: fish oil and calcium/magnesium with vit d and prenatal vitamins?

Some: The fish oil and prenatals are fine together. Ask your doctor how much calcium and vitamin d you need based on your diet. It may be worth getting a vitamin d level. If you need to take the additional calcium, it's probably best to take it apart from the prenatals, which also usually contain calcium. ...Read more

I am 60 and was told I need 1000 mg calcium intake daily. Can I take 500 mg calcium pills daily and balance food. Is calcium magnesium pill better?

I am 60 and was told I need 1000 mg calcium intake daily. Can I take 500 mg calcium pills daily and balance food. Is calcium magnesium pill better?

Calcium balance: Current guidelines state that a person should not take more than 1000 mg of calcium in tablet form per day, and that dietary calcium is healthier form of calcium than tablet calcium. If your target is 1000 mg total, I recommend one tablet of calcium-magnesium (yes is better) and then get the rest of your total calcium target from food. Consult a nutrition counter for mg calcium in each food ...Read more

I have Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc altogether in one pill. It says to take 1 to 3 caplets daily with a meal. Can I take all three at once, instead?

Med Directions: If it says 1-3 daily, then it means all at once. If it were to say take 1 tablet three times a day then it would mean exactly that. If it said to take one tablet up to three times a day then it would be how your are interpreting the directions. According to what you said the correct way is the first, 1-3 tablets all at once, one time a day. ...Read more

I'm in my mid 30s and take vitamins such as calcium magnesium zinc and fish oil on a daily basis.  are there any potential risks?  is it safe?

Be careful with zinc: Zinc can be helpful in maintaining your healthy immune function, but too much zinc can actually decrease your immune function. Excess zinc can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. It can also interfere with the absorption of other essential minerals, particularly magnesium and copper. A copper deficiency can inhibit the transport of iron in the body and result in anemia. The upper limit is 40mg/d. ...Read more

Is it ok to take calcium, vitamin D3 and magnesium together? Or do calcium and magnesium compete for absorption?

Is it ok to take calcium, vitamin D3 and magnesium together? Or do calcium and magnesium compete for absorption?

OK, to a degree but:: Calcium ; magnesium are often packaged together both in supplements ; foods. They compete a bit; calcium may reduce mag. Absorption but mag. Does not seem to reduce cal. Absorption. Those low in mag. Have difficulty absorbing cal.; if deficient in mag. It may be best to take it separately.

I take calcium, magnesium, hair/nails/skin vitamin, iron, and fish oil vitamin. How am I supposed to feel and how to I know they are working?

I take calcium, magnesium, hair/nails/skin vitamin, iron, and fish oil vitamin. How am I supposed to feel and how to I know they are working?

Hard to know: If you have had a deficiency of one of these vitamins or minerals, your symptoms should gradually improve- hair/nails will take a while because of slow growth.
If taking for general health, it is certainly tricky to know because the goal is to not develop a condition. So, if you don't develop a condition, is it because the supplement helped or if you wouldn't have got it anyway. Good luck! ...Read more
