Vitamins & Supplements Overview

A vitamin is an organic molecule (or a set of molecules closely related chemically, i.e. vitamers) that is an essential micronutrient which an organism needs in small quantities for the proper functioning of its metabolism. Essential nutrients cannot be synthesized in the organism, either at all or not in sufficient quantities, and therefore must be obtained through the diet.

Taking Biotin with Metoprolol

I wanted to know if I can take biotin while taking metoprolol? I just want to make sure before I start. ## From what I've researched, Biotin can be naturally found in your body (and is produced by bacteria in your GI tract to aid in digestive functions). It also naturally occurring in many foods. Therefore, I am of the opinion that Metoprolol shouldn't negatively interact with what is already normally present in your body...Otherwise, the medication would be deemed useless for all human consumption...Lol. According to The University of Maryland Medical Center, "although there is no evidence that biotin interacts with any medication, there are some medications that may lower biotin levels."

Astymin syrup

Can it help hasten weight gain and also can it be taken during menstruation? ## Hello Sussy, According to apollo pharmacy Astymin Syrup is a compilation of different multivitamins. They do not list weight gain as a potential side effect nor do they warn you to avoid taking this vitamin during pregnancy.

Here is a list of active ingredients listed in the syrup 100mg Calcium Pantothenate-5mg L Histidine-3.71mg Folic Acid-0.75mg L-isoleucine-5.9mg Lysine-25mg Methionine-9.2mg Tryptophan-5mg Thiamine (Vitb1)-5mg Riboflavin (Vitb2)-3mg Tocopherol (Vite)-75i.u Cholecalciferol-200i.u Ascorbic Acid (Vitc)-40mg P...

Neurobion n ginkgo Biloba extract

Can both neurobion n ginkgo Biloba extract be taken together. Any side effect? Thank you for your attention. ## Can ginkgo Biloba extract be taken with neorobion? ## If you are already taking Ginkgo, but still experiencing Tinnitus or sudden movement of an eye or any similar thing, you can try to take Neurobion once a day for a month. If your condition improved, then stop the neurobion and just continue the Ginkgo. You can already feel after a week if these 2 are good for you. That's what I did, but better ask your doctor. ## They are both nothing more than supplements, the Neurobion contains a blend of B vitamins, and Ginkgo is its own substance that hasn't been actually proven to help with anything, so while there have been no studies done about taking them together, it would ...
