Supplements after 50:
Vitamin d deficiency is an epidemic at all ages, so I recommend checking your 25-oh vitamin d level and supplementing accordingly.
Women go into menopause at the average age of 52, so at that point cyclic bioidentical estrogen and Progesterone replacement would be necessary.
Men lose 1% testosterone per year starting at the age of 30, so by age 50 a man could be deficient in testosterone. ...Read more

Good mulitvit, Vit D: It is best to get vitamins from your diet, but the majority of americans do not get enough vit a, e, d, folic acid, calcium & magnesium from their diets & over 1/3 are deficient in c, zinc & b6. Thus, unless you have an exceptionally healthy diet it is wise to take a high quality mulivit. With about 5000 iu of d in fall & winter (year-round if you wear sunscreen or avoid sun).Please see my comment:. ...Read more

How to increase my height. I m being 32 year old male? I m only 5.2 inch. Is there any height increasing supplement? Shall I use growth factor plus
Waste of money: Growing taller requires open growth centers in your bones, not worthless "growth factor plus".The growth centers close in males by age 16-20.They can never be reopened. If you have lots of money & can take a year or 2 off, you might find an orthopedic center where a surgeon could break your lower legs & stretch them. You would be in traction for a long time & it may not work. Best accept your height ...Read more
Best diet for 13 year old athlete (very active) who lives like a pro? If any is there any supplements he should take? How much sleep do you recommend.
Teen athlete: It scares me a bit to hear you comment a 13 year old is "living like a pro". His body just is not ready for the stressors that pro athletes endure, and this lifestyle at such a young age has a very high rate of burn-out associated with it. If there is a sports medicine doc in your area, it would be worth the investment to consult them for an age appropriate regimen, diet and sleep schedule. ...Read more

31 year old male w/ a testosterone level of 312. Is this concerning? How do I get this level to go up? Are there any OTC supplements that help?
Low for age: Your level is on the low side so the question is why? You need to get to the underlying problem and fix that first before just trying to raise testosterone levels with medications/supplements. Diet, nutritional deficiencies, stress and lack of sleep are probably the biggest culprits for this problem. First, get some testing of your other hormones and vitamin levels and then work on your lifestyle. ...Read more
Is it possible to increase height in a safe way, if someone is 17 year-old male. I have heard that a protein supplement might help?

A blood sample before and 3 months after supplementation would be recommended. Also make sure you are doing 30 mins of weight bearing exercise at least 3 times a week for optimal bone health. ...Read more

If no T-shortage, its use is not advisable and the regular doctor would hesitate to prescribe its use. Sorry for not straight shooting your inquiry... ...Read more

My 17 year old daughter has burning eyes. What are thebest drops, gels and ointments for secondary dry eyes? For how long can we use gels? Can you suggest the best omega 3 supplement?
Dry eyes: At age 17 she should not have primary dry eye symptoms. You say "secondary', but to what. This implies some other problem, perhaps improper contact lens wear. If over-the -counter artificial tears do not relieve her symptoms, an evaluation by an ophthalmologist is recommended. ...Read more
I am 22 years old and my height is 5'1, so I want to grow at least 2 or 3 inches more, what should I do, what supplement would be best for me?
Accept it: I am sorry to tell you that most men stop growing by age 18 (though occasionally there will be slight increases up to about 21). But no 22 year old is going to grow any taller. Once the growth plates of your bones have closed further growth is impossible. At this point all you can do is accept that this is who you are and how tall you will be. ...Read more
Hi, I am 22 years old indian male who needs to increase his height. I can turn to supplements and all, basically anything that is safe. Please help.
Self acceptance: I wish I could help but nothing will help you grow at this age. Bones grow from the growth plate, which close between age 17-21. Once the growth plates have closed it is impossible to grow even a millimeter. Since it is impossible to grow it is important to accept this and know that you can have a happy & successful life at your current height. Consider counseling or homeopathy if you need help! ...Read more
Do any of the testostrone supplements really work? I'm 48 years old I have taken ageless male and zyrexin neither seem to help
The: The federal government allows over-the-counter supplements to be manufactured and sold w/o any proof of safety and/or efficacy. In other words, the manufacturer does not have to demonstrate that its product works as long as it prints the typical fda disclaimer. This is very different from over-the-counter medications. My point is this: otc supplements that claim to increase your testosterone do not work. If you're really concerned about symptoms of low t (known as hypogonadism), go see your family physician for testing and treatment. Good luck! ...Read more
My problem is regarding my facial hair. I am 19 years old male and I am struggling with my thin facial hair, is there any supplement for faster growt?
Your genes: How thick or thin a beard you can grow is entirely genetic. I am going to assume that you are normally masculinized with normal erections and ejaculations. It has nothing to do with your virility. Many women in the usa and europe prefer a man with a thin beard; if your culture expects you to grow a thick one, you have my sympathy. Teen idol justin bieber (photo) can't grow a beard either. ...Read more

Is it okay for 15 year olds to take supplements and lift heavy weight? I've heard that overhead lifts can stunt growth is this true?
Depends: In answer to your first question, taking supplements depends entirely on what is in the supplement. If it is a multivitamin, of course that is fine. There are supplements that may do harm, however. Lifting weights at 15 is fine if supervised by experienced trainers and coaches. Overhead lifting in and of itself will not stunt growth. ...Read more
