Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. Dose varies w/the other vitamins you mention. Need to know more.

Little benefit: You are most likely to reach your tallest potential height by following a healthy diet, getting appropriate sleep and remaining physically active. Nothing you eat or drink will add inches to the final specified in your genes. Most over 18 have closed growth centers and will not grow taller, a few will grow a little until 20. Supplements only help if you were deficient. ...Read more

What should I do to get calcium and magnesium absorbed into the body through supplementation?

What should I do to get calcium and magnesium absorbed into the body through supplementation?

Absorption: There is no need for any aids to absorb calcium (C) if you have normal levels of 1-25 DHCC (1-25), which is the agent responsible for the intestinal transport of C into body. Patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD, need some replacement of 1-25, as their diseased kidneys do not allow 1-25 to be made. Magnesium absorption is not effected by CKD. There are no drugs to improve it. ...Read more

I began a calcium/magnesium supplement program, how long before I notice the full effects?

I began a calcium/magnesium supplement program, how long before I notice the full effects?

Depends: Why are you on the program? I recommend a 1:1 dosage--i.e., equal amounts of calcium and magnesium. The dosage is determined by your bowel tolerance--i.e., the dosage that gives you diarrhea or loose stools. Just reduce the dosage to what is comfortable for you. Excess calcium impairs magnesium absorption--and inadequate magnesium impairs calcium absorption. ...Read more

I tell my patients to choose the vitamin of their choice. If they are males the only other caution is that no iron! ...Read more
