looking around it appears that the few studies that used both pill and liquid form got the exact same result -- no effect in reducing blood pressure.

I just wanted to inquire a little about diet pills... I figured they gotta be pretty bad for you, considering most have a laxative effect (so i've heard, correct me if i'm wrong) and really only help you to lose water weight. I also thought that... (more)

Marketing gimmick. Steer clear. There is nothing they can do for you that you can't do for yourself with diet and exercise. Best case scenario you waste your money, worst case scenario you harm your body. And when you say girls your age, that... (more)

I am taking NAC and I was wondering if the powder in a capsule is more effective than the hard pill form. Thanks

I think the slower something moves through the body the better chance the concentrated nutrients will actually get absorbed. So slow release pills would be best. One potential problem is that they are made to be too shelf stable and are so full of... (more)

Freeform L-Lysine is pretty much going to be be 100% the same from every vendor. I've always liked Solgar when I can't decide between brands for various supplements. Also: don't just dose with Lysine -- make sure to keep Arginine low.

I agree that your body likely needs more time to re-calibrate. That said there are a couple of common misconceptions that I often see, here and elsewhere that may be playing into what you are experiencing. Not sure what pill you were on but this... (more)

When I was a teenager I had really bad acne. I went on a full Roaccutane regimen which lasted for several months, and fixed 99% of it - fortunately I didn't have any of the myriad of possible side effects. 0.5% was taken care of later when I found... (more)

Is it theoretically possible that all the nutrition one needs (except protein and calories) in order to remain abundantly healthy throughout life could be packed into a single pill (or, barring this, several small pills)? Are there essential... (more)

I don't believe that the optimal forms, co-factors, and bioavailability can be replicated with supplements. Magic pill syndrome and dietary reductionism have become so pervasive that many people now believe that junk food + multivitamin is... (more)

I'd like to diversify my n-3 supplementation by using flax instead of fish oil a few times a week. Other posts have noted the unique benefits that flax has over fish, though my impression is that overall fish is superior. I've noticed, however,... (more)

I took liver tabs once upon a time, actually this brand. The main reason to take them was to give your body a good, complete amino acid source, along with iron, B12, riboflavin, and folic acid. If you eat plenty of red meat, and complete proteins,... (more)
