Is there any actual benefit to taking vitamin supplements?

Is there any actual benefit to taking vitamin supplements?

Absolutely: First of all our soils are depleted and no longer contain the same nutrients that were available to us as little as 30 yr ago. To further complicate matters we are a "processed food" society. The more you process a food the more nutrients you deplete. Then there is the issue of over cooking the processed foods. We are eating essentially "dead food". This makes supplementation critical for health. ...Read more

What is the best vitamin supplements to keep the pH balance up. My body is extremely sensitive and my pH balance is horrible?

Whoa: There is a cult diagnosis of "ph disturbance" promoted on the internet, in which good people are encouraged to self-diagnose and then take elaborate mixtures of dubious vitamins and supplements. Unlike some other "pop" claims, this has no relationship to reality. If you are interested in supplements / natural / "holistic" healing, get with an evidenced-based natural healer in your community. ...Read more

I want to know right vitamin supplements for migraine headache and anxiety?

I want to know right vitamin supplements for migraine headache and anxiety?

Not related: Vitamins are not likely to affect migraine or anxiety. If you are not on a regular mixed diet, you may take any over the counter multivitamin, however that is not likely to affect your symptoms. It would be prudent to consult a doctor for the treatment of migraine and anxiety. 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. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...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

How can I boost my 8ry old immune system. He eats ok food, runs around, gets sunshine, verrucas persisting for more than 2yrs. Vitamin supplements??

No worries: Persistent warts are not due to a weak immune system; it doesn't indicate any immune system problem. Activity and balanced diet are healthful, but not likely to help his warts. They'll clear up eventually. Or if large or in a bothersome spot, speak with his pediatrician about treatment. In meantime, this is no reason to worry about his general health. ...Read more

?GI Bleeding: Red or black colored stool may be a sign of bleeding in the GI tract (from the esophagus, stomach, small intestine or colon) and should not be ignored.
When stool color changes, what tests need to be done depends upon what cause is suspected for the stool color change. For example, gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy may be required to evaluate red or black stools if bleeding is suspected. ...Read more
