Avatar n tn But, the trouble with supplements is that you can overdose very esily, unless used judiciously or prescribed by a doctor. For instance, Viatmin A and E are easily available from our daily food and being fat soluble, they get stored in our tissues and overdosing is very easy. I do not know, why the Companies are packing such easily availble vitamins along with some other difficult to get nutrients like zinc, omega3 or B12. So, while taking supplements, always do consult the doctor.
Avatar f tn improved mood (apparently low zinc levels have been linked to depression and ADHD) and increased libido (there are studies backing that too, look it up). So zinc sulfate (sulphate) will probably cure your warts, improve your mood, and make you horny. Cure = found. I still recommend the licorice tea and supplements as a quick attack on the HPV virus and zinc as a long term remedy to the underlying cause of HPV flare-up and susceptibility (low blood serum zinc levels).
Avatar m tn Don't bother with a General Practitioner or Primary Care Physician. Look for a specialist in Men's Health which is a GP or PCP that has studied and focuses on sexual matters.
Avatar n tn I am sorry for your Dx. I am a female but also now hypo.Since the beginning of my illness everything I read regarding the disease, when I stumbled across the stats of men getting it, I read through it. Dx is rare. specially on sub clinical Hypo or Hyper thyroidism in men. I believe this b/c men are less likely to see a doctor when they have symptoms. and if they do go and get Dx'd - most do not have the patience and stay on top of it.
Avatar m tn I would say no you don't need centrum A to Zinc. You should try One A Day Men's Health Formula. You take it once a day, I would recommend the morning so that you remember to take it each day. It has all of the B Vitamins as well as Vitamin C, which you are not getting enough of. It doesn not contain Iron so you will have to make sure that you get enough of that. It does contain fish and soy so make sure that you are not allergic to either.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar m tn The cumulative effect is a decrease in overall libido if suitable replenishment of zinc is not observed. In relation to men's sexual health, zinc is very important for testicular health and prostate health. The prostate gland contains more zinc than any other organ in the body. Zinc supplementation has been shown to increase free testosterone levels in the blood which increases libido, reduces fatigue, and improves overall sexual health. http://www.ourhealthwisdom.
Avatar n tn I have read that zinc can increase sperm count if that is an issue for you. I had my husband take it while we were ttc. He had an analysis done before he took it, and one a few months later, and his count was a good deal higher (although his count wasn't a problem to begin with, so it may just be coincidence).
Avatar m tn the only form of Vitamin C which seems to be best absorbed is Liposomal Vitamin C which seems to achieve about 95% absorption into the body due to Liposomes which protect C from the harshness of the gut and deliver it to the cells. In terms of Zinc... only Zinc Picolinate demonstrated in peer-reviewed studies elevated levels of Zinc after long term supplementation - no other form of Zinc did that.
Avatar n tn I have heard Clomid works on male infertility. I think it corrects only certain types of male infertility caused by a certain factor though. Of course I can't remember exactly what it was, but ask your doctor, I'm sure he would be familiar with using it.
Avatar f tn Zinc is required for the production of testosterone and zinc content in the prostate gland and sperm is higher than in any other body tissues. A deficiency of zinc is associated with numerous sexual problems, including sperm abnormalities and prostate disease. Zinc helps to maintain semen volume and adequate levels of testosterone; keeping sperm healthy. 6.
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.

Avatar m tn The 13 Most Powerful Superfoods Avocados They're high in fat, but avocados contain healthful monounsaturated fat, which has been linked to a reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. "Avocados aid in blood and tissue regeneration, stabilize blood sugar, and are excellent for heart disorders," says Ed Bauman, Ph.D., director of Bauman College. They're loaded with fiber (11 to 17 grams per fruit) and are a good source of lutein, an antioxidant linked to eye and skin health.
Avatar m tn I took a Mens prostate health vitamin, lots of zinc and lecithin and shortly after I had the same problems. I have bald spots all over my neck now and on my jaw line between my chin and sideburn area. I used to have a bushy chin strap beard and now I have a patchy *** beard and have to shave sideburns and all of my neck. I haven't realized the connection to the mens vitamins until I read this here, so there is definitely a trending issue here.

Avatar n tn And always have a varied and good diet sufficiently rich in essential trace elements, especially those that are important to men's sexual health, like zinc. The fact that you are circumcised may also be an explanation for your situation. It depends. Circumcision will certainly alter to a certain point your sex life (since the glans is all time exposed--and it should not be, that's why there is the foreskin--and consequently it loses part of its sensitivity) but in some cases it may ruin it.
Avatar m tn a body that never realizes its full potential. But you can fight back with food; start today and you'll hit your peak from head to toe. Skin Carrots are loaded with vitamin A, which helps balance the pH of your skin's surface, making it just acidic enough to fend off harmful bacteria.
Avatar n tn some of the ones i used were i thing T/Gel (contains coal tar), sebulex ( contains sulfur), and one containing Zinc.... you can find them in the dandruff section and it will usually say "treatment for sebborhic dermetitis". Try mixing the palmolive with vinegar and some fresh lemon juice too... that's what I did. Also make sure you use a good conditioner - try pantene deep fortifying treatment conditioner... since the palmolive will strip your ends...

Avatar m tn It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.

Avatar m tn I tried Zinc and Saw Palmetto everyday for the next year or so, with no results. Eventually, this condition wore my mind down and I had a very strong bout with anxiety attacks. After 3 weeks of barely being able to function I finally saw a doctor. Stupidly, I did not tell him about my ED. He prescribed me Zoloft with very few questions asked and I proceeded to take the drug for the next few months.
Avatar m tn I also read from internet that Vit D has a role to play in men's sexual health, you can Google and get more info. If that be true, you should again check if your body is indeed absorbing Vit D ( test for Vit D level again) and if it does not, investigate the problem behind it. Better to work with the original physician and continue investigation as she/he is very familiar with your case.
Avatar n tn also, take a men's multivitamin or mens sexual health vitamin. zinc and other vitamins linked to prostate health will keep the pipes flowing cleaner. 5. hydration. stay well hydrated and you will produce more seminal fluid, which is the non sperm part of your emmission .
