supplements to gain weight?

See below

Supplements
If you want to gain weight start by changing your diet and exercise plan. You'll gain weight if you're consuming more calories than you're burning. Do not choose junk food. Make sure you're getting all your necessary nutrients in calorie rich food. Also, by weight lifting you can increase your muscle mass. If these changes aren't working after several weeks, see your doctor for a specialized plan.

Is CLA a healthy supplement?

Depends

Supplements
Although CLA has been shown to lead to weight loss, most of the supplements sold in the US are synthetic and have a mixture of the natural form and the synthetic form of CLA. The synthetic form may have adverse side effects; the research is note uniform. The best source for natural CLA is from grass fed cows: whole milk or yogurt and the meat. CLA has also been shown to have anticancer effects.

Dr. James W. Chu answered:

Are iodine supplements safe?

Only in safe amounts

Iodine
Iodine deficiency is uncommon in the US because it is abundant in seafood, added to many other foods, and found in multivitamins. Taking more than the generally recommended daily limit of ~1000 mcg daily will increase the risk of thyroid dysfunction. Hypothyroidism occurs when excessive iodine blocks thyroid hormone synthesis. Hyperthyroidism can also occur in people susceptible to overfunction.

What is a taurine supplement?

Taurine

Open-uri20121104-2659-136pf9b
Taurine is an amino acid, a building block of proteins. People can generally make taurine in their bodies, but some cannot -- for these, taurine is an "essential" amino acid and must be supplied from the outside. It can support cardiac and liver function, and more. http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-1024-TAURINE.aspx?activeIngredientId=1024&activeIngredientName=TAURINE

What dietry supplements work?

Thousands

Open-uri20130114-27485-z1s9kj
This is like asking what medicines work? There are thousand of dietary supplements containing a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, superfood extracts & herbs. Of course some are much higher quality than others & what "works" for one person may not work for someone else- it depends on your needs. But most of these "work" for at least some & many have remarkable benefits.

Is xenical a good supplement?

Xenical

Stringio
Xenical is not a supplement. It's a prescription medication that blocks about one-third of the fat in the food you eat from being digested. Instead, this fat comes out in your stool -- often giving you diarrhea. The idea is that if you don't absorb the fat, you'll lose weight. There can be many problems with this, including the fact that several essential vitamins are fat-soluble.
