Help, son 15 months old, opened whole fish oil 1000mg, wheat germ 100 mg per caps, may be 2 caps and ingested, not don't think mercury free?

Do you recommend wheat germ oil for acne and scars?

Do you recommend wheat germ oil for acne and scars?

Get a real Rx: I suspect that these internet remedies are cruel pranks. It's not going to touch either active disease or scars. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared your active disease in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength rx. Only a specialist with a laser, filler, or microsurgery can make the scars less visible. ...Read more

Help, son 15 months old, opened whole fish oil 1000mg, wheat germ 100 mg per caps, 2 caps and ingested, mouth smells fish, don't think mercury free?

Child should be ok: Fish oil caps are intended for maintenance use and if mercury content was high, it would not be safe for adults either. About 6 oz of wild salmon will provide about 2000 mg of DHA, and it is thought that infants over 6 months can have up to 3 oz a week, so avoid further fish in your infants diet for the next few weeks to be sure. ...Read more

Hi doctor. Can I eat mix powder of egg white powder, wheat germ powder, formula baby instead protein powder for volume muscle?

Hi doctor. Can I eat mix powder of egg white powder, wheat germ powder, formula baby instead protein powder for volume muscle?

Sounds unpleasant...: To increase muscle mass you need to increase weights when you strength train. Adequate protein is important in your diet - but no concoction is going to give you the gains you want without you doing the work. I would suggest that lean meats would be a more appetizing way to meet the protein requirements. ...Read more

I'm 36y/0, amh=0.4. What is your opinion on coenzymeq10, royal jelly, wheat grass/germ in improving low ovarian reserve? Any other supplement suggest

No good Data: There is no good data for any of the things you have listed.
