Treating Hepatitis B: The answer to this question lies with the doctor who is prescribing you viread (tenofovir). Viread (tenofovir) can be very hard on one's kidneys. If there is any worry about your kidneys then this creatine is probably not a wise decision. ...Read more

Is it safe to stack testosterone boosters, creatine and protein? I'm 16

Is it safe to stack testosterone boosters, creatine and protein? I'm 16

NO!: At 16 you should not need testosterone unless your doctor has checked your testosterone level and find it low. Excess testosterone is potentially quite dangerous. Likewise a healthy 16 year old male should not need or take creatine. Protein is present in most foods so you should not take any special protein. ...Read more

Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout? Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?

Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout? 
Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement  safe for gout users?

None will effect gou: Gout is related to URIC ACID and PURINES, not amino acids or protein supplements. BUT, since everything you mention is a complete waste of money, why bother to ask? There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...Read more

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

Amino fuel anabolic liquid (amino acids ) is it safe ?

Amino fuel anabolic liquid (amino acids ) is it safe ?

"Amino fuel": It might be generally safe, but it has 10 grams of sugar in each serving and also uses Cyanocobalamin for the b12. Routinely using anything over 5 grams of sugar in a serving causes a sugar spike and increased Insulin response -- possibly leading to Insulin resistance which you do not want. Also, methylcobalamin is much preferable over Cyanocobalamin for the b12. ...Read more

Biotin, folic acid, collagen, evening primrose, fish oil all taken together daily, is it ok? I am 26 female. No pregnancy plan.Hypervitaminosis?

Totally fine: Hypervitaminosis is a term that refers to toxic levels of vitamin a, d or e, which you clearly don't have since you are not taking any of those! biotin and Folic Acid are essential nutrients that are non-toxic and prevent birth defects.
