How is nordic naturals vitamin d3, or other vitd3 supplements?

How is nordic naturals vitamin d3, or other vitd3 supplements?

No better or worse: When it comes to multivitamins & mineral supplements, you don't need fancy labels & brands. Yes, there are claims re solubility etc but bottom line, there aren't even any studies showing clinical benefit from multivtamins. With that said, rather than worry about brand names & labels (aside from USP DSVP), ask your family doc to measure 25OH vitamin D. Keep it over 30ng/mL to protect your bones. ...Read more

What are some good vitamin for acne and acne scars? I take vit a 8000iu/ vit c 1000 mg / vit d 3000iu /vit e 400iu / zinc 50mg/ b-complex all by mouth

Consider a better: approach, HFLC, often far more effective. Study: DietDoctor.com. Conversely, LFHC foods are associated with ?ed incidence of acneform sebacious gland infections & lesions. While Accutane & benzoyl peroxide (in many formulations), tends to calm lesions, for many replacing LFHC foods with HFLC foods ends up far more effective. No evidence the vitamins your taking are effective. Do your own trial. ...Read more

Recommended daily intake for: b-complex, vitamin b-12, vitamin a, vitamin k, vitamin e, magnesium and potassium?

Recommended daily intake for: b-complex, vitamin b-12, vitamin a, vitamin k, vitamin e, magnesium and potassium?

Depends: If you look at any multivitamin bottle, there will be a rda (recommended daily allowance) for the different components. There is very little evidence out there that surpassing rda will treat or prevent any disease. From my field (ophthalmology), people who have moderate to severe macular degeneration can benefit from higher levels of a, c, e, and zinc, but the benefit is relatively small. ...Read more

Overdose of which vitamin is dangerous vita, vitd, vitb1, folic acid?

Overdose of which vitamin is dangerous vita, vitd, vitb1, folic acid?

A & D- very rare: One can only overdose on fat soluble vitamins (a, d, e) except vit. B6 (which should be limited to 250 mg/day). But it takes huge amounts to overdose.
