Are there artificial colors in liquid vitamin pills?

Are there artificial colors in liquid vitamin pills?

Yes: A liquid cannot be a pill! Unfortunately the industry adds food coloring agents to everything, both pills and liquid. There is some evidence that some kids react to food dyes, particularly the red and orange colored. The reasons are 1. To cover bad taste and 2. To make it more attractive visually so that it sells. ...Read more

All of them!: By definition all vitamins are necessary for good health, as well as all essential minerals, essential Amino Acids ; essential fatty acids.

How fast can vitamin D3 liquid drops work?

How fast can vitamin D3 liquid drops work?

Fairly quickly: Vitamin d3 liquid drops are well-absorbed & should quickly get into your system. If you are deficient in d it may, however, take some time to bring your levels up to optimal levels. I feel most adults should take 4000-5000 units a day to achieve optimal vitamin d levels. If your level is low you could safely take 10, 000 units a day for a couple weeks to speed bringing your levels up. ...Read more

Started taking liquid vitamin D3, 4000 iu. My D level was at 12. Any concerns of this dose, I'm 50 and 5'2, 95lbs. Take it with a meal? Am or Pm

Started taking liquid vitamin D3, 4000 iu. My D level was at 12. Any concerns of this dose, I'm 50 and 5'2, 95lbs. Take it with a meal? Am or Pm

Dose? A bit low,: But might eventually be adequate maintenance given build. There is no advantage & ↑ cost to being in liquid form (will end up in liquid after ingesting) or daily timing. It typically takes 2-3 months to see how dose ingested per wk has worked out & many OTC forms are low quality, not very effective. B-12 rarely useful unless pernicious anemia, http://goo. Gl/hTgfHM. Prednisone dangerous over time! ...Read more

Can the liquid wax paraffinum liquidum be topical applied to hair without blocking vitamin absorption? It's in a hair styling product I have. Thanks

Can the liquid wax paraffinum liquidum be topical applied to hair without blocking vitamin absorption? It's in a hair styling product I have. Thanks

Paraffinum: Liquidum is a form of mineral oil. It is a common ingredient in cosmetics including hair products. It has been regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and in the amounts found in common hair products can be considered safe. I doubt it would measurably affect vitamin absorption. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Do medium chain tryglyceride liquid fat soluble vitamins come in pose threat to blood tryglyceride level?

Do medium chain tryglyceride liquid fat soluble vitamins come in pose threat to blood tryglyceride level?

NO: Medium chain triglycerides are a good source of energy that tend to be rapidly metabolized and the amount in fat soluble vitamins tends to be negligible. The main thing that raises are blood triglyceride levels are excess sugars and starches; your body converts most of the starches it does not need to use right away into triglycerides as a form to store them.

I don't know. ..: .... for sure, but I don't think so. The material I was able to review about this suggests that vey little would be absorbed through the skin. You might consider calling your local Poison Control center as they may have previously encountered this question. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Possibility of aspiration pneumonia my 7 m.O baby chocked on liquid vitamins, coughed violently, vomited, still occasionally coughs 12 hours after.

Possibility of aspiration pneumonia my 7 m.O baby chocked on liquid vitamins, coughed violently, vomited, still occasionally coughs 12 hours after.

Choke/cough: Anytime there is a combination of choking on something in an infant or toddler followed by coughing, there is a possibility that a small aspiration occurred. It is also possible a little 'went down the wrong way' and the trachea (windpipe) is a little irritated. If any difficulty or distress breathing needs to be seen now/today. If just the little coughing and otherwise fine, humidity and observe. ...Read more

I'm low on vitamin D I'm taking Vitamin 3D liquid can I still take my chewable Kids multi vitamin which says has 400 IU in it on the back of bottle?

I'm low on vitamin D I'm taking Vitamin 3D liquid can I still take my chewable Kids multi vitamin which says has 400 IU in it on the back of bottle?

Yes, ok: It appears liquid Vitamin D3 comes in different concentrations: one has 2000 IU vitamin D3/drop; another only 100 IU/drop, . I'm not sure how much liquid 3D you are taking. Unless you are quite deficient, the recommended daily allowance is 600 IU per day, so I would really keep your daily intake to not more 1000 IU per day total: the liquid plus the chewable. ...Read more

Nutritious food, vitamin C, liquids etc help kids avoid getting sick from viruses. Does it mean by not coping with it they don't develop respectiv imunity?

Nutritious food, vitamin C, liquids etc help kids avoid getting sick from viruses. Does it mean by not coping with it they don't develop respectiv imunity?

No proof: I have not found any proof that any of the above measures prevents viral infection. Nutritious foods may not benefit the immune system directly per se, but they help to provide the body the resources to do a better job in defending against outside invaders. Immunity against a virus can only occur after one's infected or vaccinated against it. ...Read more

Can I take chewable multi vitamin w 50% Vitamin D in it, if I'm taking 1000 UI Vitamin D3 1 teaspoon twice a day & liquid Cacluim 1tsp 1250 mg?

50% of what 5: You need to look at the number of units. Approximately 2000 units of vitamin d/day is an appropriate amount for most people. If you're eating a normal diet with a gram or more of daily elemental calcium, you probably don't need the calcium supplementation, ...Read more

Hi. My question is...will b12 vitamins help regain sensation back to my legs after also having a shot which can I take liquid or regular tablets?

Sublingual B 12: For convenience, sublingual b 12 is the best choice. Oral b 12 has to travel through the GI system and most of it is destroyed. If you take the kind that melts under your tongue it will go directly into your blood stream and will you absorb most of it. Peace and good health. See doc about leg sensations. ...Read more

Will taking ultra biotin 10, 000 mcgs liquid drops effect my birth control amethia and my vitamin I want to boost my biotin without any contradictions?

Biotin/bcp's: Biotin, even in the amounts mentioned should not interfere with birth control. Taking oral bcp irregularly, or not taking the active pill after day seven of placebos certainly leave room for ovulation to occur, so be punctual with your oral bc, and start the active pill on day five of the placebos, which works better for protection against pregnancy. ...Read more
