Glowing: I am unsure if you want your skin to glow, or are already glowing and want to stop. Either way, biotin is unlikely to make it happen. It certainly has not been rigorously tested to see its effectiveness. That being said, it is safe in normal doses. Side effects can include acne, allergies and an increased risk of miscarriage. ...Read more

Is taking testoesrone boosters bad for liver or any health issues and is taking gnu strength vitapak ok ?

Is taking testoesrone boosters bad for liver or any health issues
and is taking gnu strength vitapak ok ?

Stop that stuff: There are no supplements or health foods that will boost testosterone. Testosterone can't be "boosted" and rarely would need it at your age. All those supplements are garbage. If any of them worked doctors would recommend them. If any of them worked there wouldn't be thousands on the market -- we'd only need one or two. Save your money and your health. Don't get medical info on tv or internet. ...Read more

Be careful with cod liver oil as while it may provide vitamin D and vitamin A, there are better sources of vitamin D. Vitamin A is a particularly finicky vitamin where too much and too little really can create problems, so it much benefit you to avoid supplementation without a known deficiency. ...Read more

Hello I am taking skin hair and nail multivitamins .. However my skin problems are really hormonal breakouts. Can I take hormone balancing tablets too?

Hello
I am taking skin hair and nail multivitamins .. However my skin problems are really hormonal breakouts. Can I take hormone balancing tablets too?

Yes...: Estrogen is the predominant hormone in the first half of the menstrual cycle. Progesterone is the main one in the second half. Both hormones fall to lower levels as menstrual bleed approaches, but a woman's testosterone stays at a fairly constant level--having relatively higher levels before and during menstruation, causing acne. OCP's can raise estrogen levels, reducing this effect. ...Read more
