Common Questions and Answers about Best vitamins supplements for women


1346723 tn?1300718741 Women who have had severe nausea or vomiting in pregnancy should consider starting a vitamin before conception. For healthy women who eat balanced diets, it is reasonable to think of vitamin supplements as an insurance policy against the unlikely chance that they are not getting enough of one of the many nutrients recommended for pregnancy. What if I'm too nauseated to take vitamins and minerals?
Avatar f tn For me, I have found Standard Processing Lab vitamins and supplements to be the best. I can not take any other brand as they are synthetic and these are food grade. Even with these, I have to be careful or they will give me a tummy ache, but, then, so do all supplements, I don't care what kind I take, I get horrific tummy aches from them, this one, at least, is the best for me.
Avatar m tn Determine what your needs are and look at vitamins and supplements for your needs. So if you need immune boosting supplements start there, or if you are interested in improving your memory, or just over all health. You can also get a lot of what you need from foods. If you have access to a good store that sells these products get to know the owner or an employee who is knowledgeable. Explain your needs.
102999 tn?1326855784 I have been taking many supplements and vitamins for many years now at the advisement of a nutritionist/pharmacist in town. I feel some of these have really helped. But not really sure what does what at this point. Drs around here really don't believe in vitamins and the more natural routes. My insurance doesn't cover the docs that deal with it. So it is very difficult to get trustworthy info/advice. Question is...could any of these be aggravating my PACs? Thoughts?
560272 tn?1311350293 Has anyone tried the supplements for anxiety? From what I've read, it is recommended that people with anxiety take the following: Daily multi/mineral vitamin B-complex (50-100mg) Vitamin C (1,000mg twice daily) Calcium-Magnesium (1,000 mg cal-500 mg mag- ratio) (and then some women who still have periods need extra iron, and also natural progesterone cream) If you have tried this, does it help? Or can you even tell a difference?
Avatar f tn I know a few women 1 of my best friends that has 4 incredibly healthy kids and she has NEVER taken a prenatal. However, if you can try to take the vitamins or at least kids gummy vitamins, anything that you can give your growing baby will super benefit them and you. Try the prenatal gummy ones. Ive heard good things about those.
1042487 tn?1275279899 The best way to balance your hormone is a good lifestyle with healthy diet and exercise. Exercise lowers stress hormones, boosts your energy, builds bone mass, and increases immunity. Choose an activity that you like ( walking, dancing, yoga, sports ) and do it several times a week. Healthy diet and good water intake is also important and as for what is a healthy diet i think i was clear above but i will be more clear. Eat whole, organic, unprocessed foods.
Avatar f tn I have always been prepared to spend on supplements but for some reason none of the numerous valerian supps I tried had any effect for me at all & I assumed it was just my biochemistry & gave up. Recently one of Australia's big pharma companies, (who I would never associate with quality), brought out a line of pure herbs with no fillers. i decided to give the valerian one more try & at last I get why people find it helpful.
Avatar n tn There are many brands out there. Good ones will have NO gluten and NO grains (this includes rice and corn), a good protein source (meat, fish, eggs, tofu, or poultry), green leafy vegetables, sweet potato, berries and some other fruit, fish oil (containing DHA), vitamins, minerals, probiotics, and digestive enzymes. The good food does not have to every single ingredient that I have listed, but will contain many of the ingredients.
1126695 tn?1261597496 Hello there, Pregnant women need a good diet and since it's hard to keep a good diet with today's processed food i recommend vitamins and minerals supplements. Raw food is better than cooked food, so don't cook your vegetables and eat a lot of fresh fruits. For the vitamins supplement i recommend a multi-vitamins/minerals like Centrum + a good vitamin C ( 1,000mg with calcium ) + a vitamin B complex. Consider Green+ or SuperFoodRX as a daily intake too which is rich in nutriments.
Avatar f tn Buy a good book on vitamins and supplements. The above info probably comes from something, but the best way to take vitamins is to spread them out during the day so you don't excrete them all out when you go to the bathroom. I don't know how many of us are disciplined to do that, but that's the best way. It very much depends on what you're taking. By the way, all vitamin supplements are "synthetic," not most.
216278 tn?1308861082 • Black Cohosh Root Used to promote healthy menstruation and to treat symptoms of PMS, menstrual cramps, dysmenorrhea, mood swings and menopause. Its ability to mimic estrogen makes it a valuable female supplement. Short-term, daily use may help stimulate menstrual flow in women suffering from dysmenorrhea. In menstruating women, take during the follicular phase (first half) of your cycle. Do not take this supplement if pregnant or breastfeeding.
Avatar f tn ANyone take any special supplements such as vitamins or mineral or other supplements to relieve the CFS symptoms. I currently take amino acid herbs and vitamin d3.
768754 tn?1373918737 vitamins/supplements. Are there any other specific concerns about multi-vitamins for Hep C+ people, not currently under tx? Thanks.
Avatar f tn Neuros do urge vitamin D, but the reason they don't recommend any other supplements, diets, etc., is that none have been shown to be effective. If something had, we'd all be on it. Eating a healthful diet overall, getting some exercise if possible, and generally taking good care of oneself are good for MSers and good for all. Everything in moderation, including moderation.
Avatar f tn What kind of specialist is best to see to find out which supplements would be best for me to take?
Avatar f tn What other supplements/vitamins are you ladies taking or suggest to take besides prenatals? !
Avatar n tn You stated that you were having muscle problems, are you eating enough potassium foods (oranges, orange juice, potatoes, bananas, etc)? Suggest you see your MD if the muscle issues continue. The best source for all vitamins and minerals are our foods. Fresh fruits and vegetables are the best sources. You get the needed vitamins and minerals and the additional fiber benefit too.

935493 tn?1248796864 C occasionally. I did some research on what vitamins and minerals were good for inflammation and started this in 2005. Recently I've had so many inflammatory conditions show up and MS..that I can't say what is working or what is not. My doctors think that what I am taking is just fine. Personally I think that my recent conditions are a result from the stress during the winter trying to take care of a very difficult mother.
Avatar m tn They are used by some to prevent health problems in the future, such as calcium supplements for osteoporosis and fish oil for heart problems. A new study sought to examine the association between multivitamin use and heart attacks in about 34,000 adult women. Was there a link? Could multivitamins help shield a person from serious cardiac events? They compared 31,671 women with no history of heart disease with 2,262 who did have a history, all aged between 49 and 83.
Avatar f tn Your body can only take in so many nutrients at a time in your digestive tract, and therefore eating a nutrient dense and balanced diet offers the best chance for absorption. Further, you might consider that most prentals have artificial coloring, flavoring, and preservatives....Jamieson is one brand that has none of those. At the end of the day, nothing beats a balanced, healthy diet.
Avatar m tn "If it was easy to drastically improve people's immune system, we would treat people with food." Nothing personal, but oh, the general ignorance of most people -- from the common folk to professional health-care practitioners -- on the crucial role of eating well to boost our own immune system..(!
1126418 tn?1326165992 I have been on the Best Bet Diet for nearly two years now. I have not been diagnosed but have brain lesions. Radiologist said MS but Neurologist not sure. So I am in limbo. Decided to change my diet and so far, no further symptoms. As well as cutting out wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs, legumes and yeast, I take a multivitamin, D3, B12, Co Enzyme Q10, Gingko Biloba, and Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Acidiphilus.
Avatar f tn Doctors are mostly afraid of all the 'fillers' in vitamins. They are ok for normal people but are toxic for Cirrhotics. As stated it's a case by case thing. Check with your doc.
