Do fat burner capsules, Creatine, Amino acid supplementations and bodybuilding  products cause cancer in the future?

Are protein and amino acid supplements in the form of powder safe for consumption? If taken moderately?

Are protein and amino acid supplements in the form of powder safe for consumption? If taken moderately?

Usually yes: As long as a protein supplement doesn't contain other substances, then it's safe in moderation. Be aware that supplement manufacturers often put things in their products that are not listed on the label, and there is no regulatory oversight of these products (they don't have to meet regulatory requirements like medications do). A better option is to increase intake of high-protein foods. ...Read more

Are anabolic steroids in tablet form a waist of money?

Are anabolic steroids in tablet form a waist of money?

They still work: They have used in clinical medicine. If you're asking about effectiveness for bodybuilding, they will help considerably but not give you the often-grotesque effects of the injectables. Given that using them is illegal and cheating, if this is what you really want, then consider limited use of tablets instead. It's one option for a "hard gainer" who wants to be "big", at least for a few months. ...Read more

Can taking the supplement TAURINE in a 3 gram dose raise testosterone levels in men?

Can taking the supplement TAURINE in a 3 gram dose raise testosterone levels in men?

Definitely maybe!: As far as I can tell, this has not been researched in humans so no one really knows. There is evidence taurine raises testosterone in rats, but that does not mean it will do so in humans; the doses used were equivalent to 15 grams/day but lower amounts may help. However, Taurine has many other proven benefits. See https://www.anabolicmen.com/taurine-testosterone/ and http://tinyurl.com/hpdlzgl ...Read more

Can taking any of the following lengthen bones and increase the height of an adult female: zinc, calcium magnesium, vitamin d, vitamin k, vitamin b?

No: Hi. At 30 years old, you're long done gaining height. Nothing you can do to add height after your long bone growth plates fuse in your teens. If you have a healthy diet, of the vitamins and mineral you list, the only ones you're at risk for not getting enough of are calcium and vitamin D, so assure you're getting enough of them. But no supplement of any kind will lengthen bones in you. ...Read more

Need help in reducing e2 (oestradiol). Need some advice in dosing aromatase inhibitors. Tried arimidex as well as aromasin (exemestane) but got bone mineral loss..

Need help in reducing e2 (oestradiol). Need some advice in dosing aromatase inhibitors. Tried arimidex as well as aromasin (exemestane) but got bone mineral loss..

Go see your doctor: Presumably you're taking Arimidex (anastrozole) to control your Estradiol to treat gynecomastia (rather than trying to jack up your testosterone). Loss of bone mineral density is a known consequence of excessively lowering one's estradiol. I'm not clear what kind of trouble you're having w/your dosing since you didn't mention your regimen. Regardless, you need to address your concern w/your doctor. ...Read more

What is the recommended dosage of magnesium both - as amino acid chelate and as oxide heavy?, Am deficient in magnesium

What is the recommended dosage of magnesium both - as amino acid chelate and as oxide heavy?,   Am deficient in magnesium

Magnesium deficiency: Most Americans are low in magnesium. It can vary from one person to another up to 8 fold how much magnesium a person needs. I recommend following label directions and increasing by one dose per night until 8 doses or loose stool. If you get to loose stool, consider that one dose too many. Most people only need 2 or 3 doses per day, and it could be taken all at bedtime. ...Read more
