What type of daily vitamin or mineral should a normally healthy 23 year old male be taking?

What type of daily vitamin or mineral should a normally healthy 23 year old male be taking?

Controversial: Some would say none, if you have a healthy diet...Others take tons of supplements. You certainly can't go wrong with a daily multivitamin. I am a proponent of a good fish oil supplement, but not necessarily in someone your age. Again, it wouldn't hurt, but can't tell you it's definitely going to help you. ...Read more

Is it safe for a 24 year old man like me to take vitamin supplements such as neurogen e, a tablet of b complex vitamins + vitamin E for nerve health?

Is it safe for a 24 year old man like me to take vitamin supplements such as neurogen e, a tablet of b complex vitamins + vitamin E for nerve health?

Yes, however...: Yes, these are safe, though I notice Neurogen E has the cyanocobalamin form of B12 and methylcobalamin is better. Look for a B complex that has the L-5-MTHF form of folate instead of folic acid, as about half of people have difficulty converting folic acid to its active form. E is best as a natural form with mixed tocopherols (not just alpha tocopherol).Consider Ashwagandha, a herb good for nerves. ...Read more

My 93 year old mother who is due to start warfarin takes a multivitamin and mineral tablet containing vitamin k. Should she stop the multivitamin?

My 93 year old mother who is due to start warfarin takes a multivitamin and mineral tablet containing vitamin k. Should she stop the multivitamin?

Most likely-Yes: Certainly, all the meds, including vitamins and over the counter need to be discussed with her warfarin/coumadin coordinator. Vit k, especially, which is a reversal agent used when the Coumadin "levels" are too high, will definitively interact with the Coumadin and make it difficult to manage properly. As stated, discuss with the treating provider for continuity of care. Best wishes. ...Read more

What is the best vitamin for a 20 year old, like me? Not a fan of one a day women

Good quality vitamin: We agree. I'm not a fan of most over the counter multivits. They have just enough of many ingredients in them to make them legal. They also base their contents on the rdas of the government, which are extremely low. Ask a nutritionist or your doc to suggest a brand. If you look on the label and many of the ingredients are several hundred % above the rda you are on the right track. Peace. ...Read more

A, D, E, B6, Iron: One can consume too much of the fat-soluble vitamins a, d & e, but one has to take massive amounts to get into trouble. Taking 25, 000 units of a for many months can be toxic. Vit d toxicity has not been reported with doses under 40, 000 iu/day. Doses of e over 1500 iu/day may cause bleeding. B6 over 250 mg/day can cause neuropathy. While not a vitamin, over 1000 mg of elemental iron is dangerous. ...Read more
