Mael supplementi keep forgetting to eat can I use a mael supplement like boost as my only source of nutrition?

Meal Supplement?: Why are you forgetting to eat? This is a big concern for anyone -- especially an 18 year old. I agree wholeheartedly with dr. Lin that boost or other meal supplements will not provide you enough of the nutrients you need to sustain you. Please see your physician for an evaluation, since this situation isn't normal at all. Some possible causes could be depression, substance use, and many more. ...Read more

What is the best supplement for reverse aging?

There is not one: Remember that "supplements" have no definitive or proven real effect in the body. There are a miriad of substances that claim reverse aging: antioxidants like vitamins e, c, a. Some claims of the seed of apricot, vital procolageno , hyaluronic acid, collagen. Retinoids. And many more. Definitively smoking causes more wrinkles and premature death. ...Read more

What are mangosteen supplements for?

It taste good: Mangosteen is a fruit grown in thailand.

Yes, Think Food: Our bodies use food. There are appropriate situations for supplements, including conditional deficiencies people can have - but think about the vitamin c in orange and the nearly 3000 other chemicals that likely support how it is used in your body.

How do I know if I should supplement with formula?

Depends: This is a big question, and one best made in collaboration with your pediatrician and lactation consultant, if possible.
