Vitamins & Supplements Overview

A vitamin is an organic compound and an essential nutrient, or micronutrient, that an organism needs in small amounts.

Codesoft tablet

Is it safe to take codesoft while planning for pregancy. ## Hi Pinky, Well it looks like Codesoft is simply a combination of Evening Primose Oil (cod liver oil) and vitamin E; which in my opinion is safe to take while planning for pregnancy. This isn't a drug (it can be found in many whole foods, like cod, salmon, etc.) and unless you are somehow allergic to Vitamin E or Omega 3 fatty acid then this is fine to take at any time. I am not a doctor, but since these are natural ingredients found in common food there shouldn't be any risks. Keep in mind eating fresh whole foods is a much better option than supplementing single ingredients. ## Respect Sir, With in one month my left breast in small tumor with pain I am consult 2 doctor, Suggest first doctor operation but second doctor ...

Loss in physical interest after prolonged use of follohair

My husband is 35.... doctor prescribed him follihair for hair loss two years back for a month.... but he has been taking since widout doctors advice.... I hav noticed that in past one year he is hardly interested in physical touch.... I feel this is because of excessive intake of follihair.... can this be true ## It is very doubtful, because Follihair is just a nutritional supplement that contains a complex of vitamins and minerals that are vital to our overall health, as well as biotin to aid in hair growth and health. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, and diarrhea, in some people that take it. There are, however, many medications that could cause such an issue. Does he take anything else regularly? Has his doctor checked his testosterone level?
