Common Questions and Answers about Best vitamins supplements for women


Avatar f tn One thing is about supplements and vitamins and all that is they are so expensive! They say most of what you pay for you just eliminate down the toilet. It helps us metally to feel we are doing something positive, but I really feel the best way to get vitamins and minerals is through your food not a processed pill. You are far better off eating a fresh juicy orange for vitamin C or some delicious fresh steamed veggies than a pill.
Avatar f tn Many essential fatty acids supplements contain borage oil. Black cohosh is listed as well and I know many women take this as an alternative to hormone therapy, and I have taken it in the past. Any opinions, words of wisdom, etc. welcomed please.
102999 tn?1326859384 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?
Avatar m tn for everything solely from eating right, if you eat/use the right foods, herbs, or supplements, and do your best to avoid toxic & acid build-up (a.k.a. pure nourishment/lifestyle) your body's own natural powers to heal itself from [most any] disease will take charge. I challenge you to look into this, get enlightened, and help others be aware as well.
Avatar f tn *Herbal medicines Withania or Coleus to increase production of thyroid hormone. (See Best Herbs for Women article.) *Iodine (not kelp) but in LOW dose. *Use with caution in Hashimoto's disease. *Amino acid tyrosine which is the building block for thyroid hormone. *N-acetyl cysteine to detoxify *Vitamin B6 and Vitamin A to improve the function of the thyroid gland. *Selenium and zinc to ensure conversion of T4 to T3.
560272 tn?1311353893 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 m tn I believe it I'd help and I finally got a good egg after having 2 miscarriages in a row before starting on these supplements. I wish you all the best on your journey TTC.
29837 tn?1414538248 Bacon who is a very good Hep c Doc and I am very satisfied with there handling of the tx but we walk alone with supplements. Thanks for the suggestion though. I have followed your posts for a long time and remember the infamous Infergen scare. I wish you the very best on your next try. I will be watching and praying for your success.
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.
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 f tn My doctor advises the Citracal Citranatal family of vitamins. They have different vitamins with DHA, Folic Acid and all the necessary vitamins for you and the baby. Here is the link for you to check it out.
Avatar f tn So is Fertil-Aid (one for men and one for women). There are a couple of things that can help women with egg issues. Wheatgrass is one natural supplement. And another promising treatment is DHEA. Not sure if you have had your FSH tested or gotten an antral follicle count. But if your FSH is elevated or AFC is low, DHEA has been shown to be effective. Not sure if I'm allowed to post the link to the study but it's a clinic in NY called Center for Human Reproduction. Here is a link: http://www.
Avatar f tn Hi Ladies, My question is how long before TTC should I start taking prenatal vitamins? My fiancé and I are planning to try immediately after our wedding in April 2015. Also, what brands of prenatal vitamins do you recommend and why? Thanks!
Avatar f tn If you would prefer to err on the side of caution, you can always look for supplements that are made specifically for pregnant women.
325477 tn?1250554909 Although the official website sais that it is only a rumor and that Geritol doesn't increase fertility but I have read so much about women who were TTC for years and then got pregnant in a month or two after taking Geritol... Im taking prenatal vitamins now but nothing has changed..Im wondering if I should switch to Geritol? Does anyone have any ideas about this? Thanks!
Avatar f tn Omega-3 and Pregnancy- Fish oil over flax seed Pregnant women are often told to take fish oil capsules but must be careful to get the best quality, instead of cheap, generic stuff. The cheap fish oil may come from fish with contamination and may not be free of pollutants. Women should be careful about the types of fish and fish oil they consume when they are pregnant, nursing, or even when experiencing pregnancy symptoms.
Avatar f tn are you worried about over-intaking the iron? most multis won't add too much, but for women especially it's important to keep your iron intake adequate enough.
Avatar n tn ive heard of 3 things u can take 1. michaels vitamins for the female reproductive factor 2. Ovulex-the girls here say its great 3.
Avatar f tn Some work for some people but not for others. The key is to work out what works best for You. It is a slow process but definitely can be worthwhile. I would recommend however, that Milk Thistle and basic antioxidants Vits C & E are an excellent starting point. Also Lipoic Acid and selenium. Maybe you could read up on the Berkson Protocol for hep C which relies on a relatively small number of supplements but all of them pack a powerful punch against the damage caused by the virus.
Avatar n tn Are there any supplements, vitamins, etc that will assist the liver in combating hep c and to help with low platelets. I have been in 2 clinical trials of interferon and ribiviran without success. Also can you comment on any kind of alternative treatment for Hep C, if not to cure, then to keep the viral load down. Possibly chinese medicine and herbs.
Avatar f tn I was on all kinds of supplements before my diagnosis because I had a bad case of mononucleosis for six months. My MS Specialist looked at the list and said no to all since he said I did not want to over stimulate my immune system. He said I did not have to be on Vitamin D because I have such a high blood level.
Avatar f tn Random supplements that may help with certain symptoms and conditions will not work in practice, only in theory. For starters, you have serious assimilation and delivery issues. Your symptomology and medical history points to chronic deficiencies that were probably addressed inefficiently! On top of this, you have a low PH enviroment, that creates the ideal terrain for disease to thrive. A widespread pathogenic micro-organism infectious invasion is highly suspect!
Avatar m tn I'm starting detox with infared saunas today. I take a few supplements but all mild. Best wishes for you in your treatment.
Avatar n tn Geography's a real curse. The perfect personal trainer lives an inter-continental flight away from me? Further proof there's no justice...!
Avatar m tn For elderly folks, the best one to take is Centrum Silver. Most people who claim they can tell a difference in how they feel, in my opinion, would say the same thing if they were on a placebo of a vitamin. If you think you are going to feel "better" with something, chances are that you will. Mind and body connection. Yes the body does use the vitamins that it needs, and while some are passed out in urination if in abundance, others do not, and can quite possible lead to problems.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn A friend is trying to sell me a nutrition supplement called Reliv. She says drinking supplements help you retain more vitamins than pills and that Reliv products give you everything you would ever need - vitamin and mineral wise. I need to find out if this is actually a good product to use or not. And a recommendation for a good supplement if this is not. Thanks.
1201929 tn?1293711672 First of all, natural progesterone is much preferred over synthetic progesterone (such as Provera). Again, for a full explanation and dose recommendations for progesterone cream. John Lee, M.D.'s web site and books are some of the best resources available regarding progesterone. One can also use natural sublingual progesterone, and the dosages should be recommended by a doctor based on hormone tests.
Avatar n tn Vitamin C made my BG's run higher than usual, which would be good if they were continuously too low. The best thing I found was a regular multi-vitamin for women and Flaxseed oil. Maybe it was the placebo effect, but I noticed that I was more sensitive to lows and that the highs weren't as bad. Oh, and be careful about the children's vitamins because a lot of them have sugar added for flavor. Take care!
