Does BCAA and/or amino acids effect birth control pills? Specific I'm taking the shredz brand bcaa powder.

Does BCAA and/or amino acids effect birth control pills? Specific I'm taking the shredz brand bcaa powder.

Birth Control: unless there is some estrogen or progesterone in the powder it is doubtful. However, I doubt there have been specific testing done to see if there is any interactions. The FDA which controls the medications in the US has no control of supplements. They are classified as foods and don't have to meet drug standards for testing. They just put the warning that they make no claim to treat or cure. ...Read more

Avoid alcohol, sweetened juices, soda & caffeinated beverages. Aim for 7.5 to 8 hrs of sleep / night. Hydrate w at least 64 oz of water / day. Calories burned must > calories consumed.

Is there any brand in market that sells b-carotine derived vitamin A, instead of fish oil derived vitamin A? Fish oil gives me anxiety.

Is there any brand in market that sells b-carotine derived vitamin A, instead of fish oil derived vitamin A? Fish oil gives me anxiety.

No,but not necessary: I'm not aware of any preformed Vit A supps from vegan sources, but this isn't necessary as we can convert beta carotene to Vit A. Some people do this more efficiently than others but everyone does it to some degree so if you eat enough food rich in beta carotene or take it as a supp. you'll get adequate A. Dairy also contains A.Even if fish oil gives anxiety,A derived from fish oil probably won't. ...Read more

Is weider fat burners effective?

Fat burner: There are many pages of ads for this product when one googles it. There is however no evidence it does what it says. It probably is effective at making money for its production company. It is unlikely to have 'fat burning' effect. ...Read more

Is it bad to take sports supplements with diabetes? Currently consuming protein/creatine shake, sd matrix, fat burners, fish oils vitamin C tablets?

Is it bad to take sports supplements with diabetes? Currently consuming protein/creatine shake, sd matrix, fat burners, fish oils vitamin C tablets?

Since all that: Junk is a waste of money, doesn't do anything positive for you except spend your money, why do it? Besides, you don't know what's in any of that stuff, what harm it could possibly do to you, how it could interact negatively with medication or other supplements, etc. Save your money and use it on monitoring strips, healthy food, valid medication, etc. That can help you live better and longer. ...Read more

Sounds like your: mind is racing like a machine gun through all these stimulating supplements that will not relax you, until you understand what is important with ADHD. What activity eases your mind? Meditation? Walking? Contemplation? Do more of these things, rather than ingest more supplements initially. See if these alone can help your mind from racing through thoughts. Then, when you add one thing at a time. ...Read more

On Prozac&vyvanse and want to know if I can take supp evening primrose ginkgo biloba fish oil acidophilus L-arginine ginseng damiana gotu kola gre tea?

Why????: None of the things you mention are of the slightest benefit for anything. They are sold by com men to suckers in order to cheat them out of their money. If you want a placebo I suggest a roll of Necco wafers. Some are worse than others. Put them all in a bag and take them to show your DR. ...Read more

Does pure garcinia cambodia extract really work!?

Does pure garcinia cambodia extract really work!?

Don't use it: Garcinia cambogia is in most weight loss supplements, and can cause liver failure.It was also used in Hydroxycut which was taken off the market as people died from using it. I see a handful of patients per month with abnormal liver tests after using this medicine. I would NOT recommend it. There is no "magic pill" for weight loss. Diet and exercise remain the #1 way to lose weight and keep it off ...Read more

Why is the medical community disapproving of glucosamine chondroitin supplements?

Why is the medical community disapproving of glucosamine chondroitin supplements?

Lack of evidence: There is no hard conclusive evidence that they work. Anecdotes do not count. However, if the diagnosis is osteoarthritis, especially of the knee or shoulder, i usually have patients give glucosamine a three month trial as glucosamine is very safe (unless shellfish allergy). If it does work, it works within three months. Less problems than with prescription medications. ...Read more
