Vitamins & Supplements Overview

A vitamin is an organic molecule (or related set of molecules) which is an essential micronutrient, that 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. Vitamin C can be synthesized by some species but not by others; it is not a vitamin in the first instance but is in the second. The term vitamin does not...

Should folbee tab brec be substituted for virt-vite?

My pharmacy substituted "folbee tab brec" for "virt-vite" 2.5-25-1 mg. Are they the same? If not, what is the difference? ## Hello RLA, Both of these are considered to be vitamins, focusing primarily on B vitamins. The problem with telling you the difference between the two is that there are a lot of variations of both of these vitamins and so giving an exact difference would be difficult. Some versions of the folbee have more vitamin B than other versions and the same can be said for virt-vite. For all intents and purposes though if the doctor feels that the folbee tab brec is enough of a vitamin boost then I see no problem with them substituting it for the virt-vite. I hope this helps.

The Effects of Diet On Chronic Pain

"The foods we eat (or don't) can affect how well our bodies fight painful inflammation" - Dr. Fred Tabung According to Dr. Fred Tabung, a visiting researcher with the Department of Nutrition at Harvard's T.H. Chan School of Public Health, "A lot of chronic pain is the result of chronic inflammation, and the evidence is quite strong that your diet can contribute to increased systemic inflammation... But your diet is also one of the best ways to reduce it." It's been said that you are what you eat, and research shows that's definitely true when it comes to chronic pain. The question sitting before us now is, which foods should we be eating more of and which foods should we be actively avoiding? Foods that cause inflammation: -refined carbohydrates, such as ...

Clear capsule containing clear liquid and light green beads

I found a clear capsule that has a clear liquid with tiny lightish green beads in it. Any ideas? ## Just a thought, but this sounds to me like some sort of dietary supplement one might find in GNC as a pre/post workout or fat burner product. These types of OTC pills generally don't have any markings on them and I've actually taken similarly depicted capsules of this nature. Perhaps it would be a good idea to take the capsule into one of those stores to see if they recognize it? Other than that, identifying something without markings could be quite a challenge, but as a last resort I'd probably consider having its contents analyzed via GCMS through a reputable lab. Hope this helps! ## Google image search "Hydroxycut HD" they are a weight loss/dietary supplement. By th...
