No: The rda is generally not enough to promote health, only mitigate disease. High doses of b vitamins are great for stress (adrenal health), energy, memory and neuropathies. B vitamins are water soluble, so if your body doesn't need them, you will urinate them out. My concern with gnc products is that the label may not reflect what is present (vitamins and fillers/toxins). ...Read more
Hye .I see premium multivitamin( example GNC mega man, now adam) has high dosage of vitamin / mineral than suggested daily value.Is it safe for us?
SAFE and ADVISABLE: The recommended daily intake is the amount that will prevent obvious deficiency symptoms in most healthy people. They have nothing to do with the optimal levels for maintaining good health and preventing disease. See http://blissfulwriter.Hubpages.Com/hub/recommended-dietary-allowance-rda-is-too-low for example, the rdi of vit d is 600 iu/day but most adults need 5-8000 iu/day for optimal levels. ...Read more
Real: This is a very pricey mix of things; psyllium will bulk your stools and senna is a laxative. Claims for acai haven't stood up to examination and i doubt that mango is a real appetite suppressant. But the first two will make your gut feel different and give you the idea you've eaten something magic -- the principle of the "active placebo." it's your money. ...Read more
Is it ok to take 300mg x 3 cod liver oil tablets a day as a source of dha, epa and omega3? Any side effects? Benefits significant?
Unknown: Cod liver oil and other fish oil supplements are fairly good sources of o3fa of which dha and epa are two types. The exact dietary requirements are unknown. Se's are uncommon but some preps may contain contaminants. There are a lot of purported benefits to o3fa and dha in particular but they are still unsubstantiated . My advice would be to eat more fish on a regular basis and skip the supplements. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Network with folks you know who take them, and be carefull of supplier trustworthiness .. ...Read more
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. I don't know about Opti-Men unless I read the label. ...Read more

Is Amway Nutrilite daily tablets have any side effect like stone in kidney ??
Is tablet supply sufficient qyt of vitamin B12 to body ??
Loss of $:
The contents of the pill you are taking are not clearly defined. In any case, you are probably not doing yourself any favor by taking an expensive food supplement. If you are deficient in B12, injections of the vitamin would be indicated. If you are not deficient you are just wasting your money.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Will taking the supplement glycerol hydromax (glycerol, silica) interact with 1mg of finasteride? I'm taking fin for hair loss. thanks
No: The supplement you are taking is an overpriced placebo. Creatine and aerobic training will do you much more good. The finasteride is your business. If you're a supplementing bodybuilder, consider simply embracing your genetic heritage. Nothing looks better than a 31 year old man who's strong, trim, with some nice well-trimmed facial hair, probably some great body hair, and some macho balding. ...Read more
Is Garcinia Cambogia the fat burner supplement recommended by Dr Oz safe ? Any concerns on health or side effects?
Beware of unknowns: If a person eats fewer calories than she needs to live on, her body will burn stored fuel (which is her stored fat). It always works, but is hard to do because she will feel hungry. If she exercises, but eats more calories than she uses during exercising, she will still gain weight. No supplements are needed, and their full effects, side effects, and interactions are not well-researched or known. ...Read more
