Why was Protegra pulled from the market?

I have taken Protegra Antioxidant for a long time and I not falling for this bull. All of a sudden the scientists who test drugs and have to be inspected by US. I'm upset over not getting my vitamin and mineral combo anymore. ## From what I've read the manufacturer discontinued it, but there may be generic equivalents available.

Are you on any medications that may affect what you can safely take as a supplement? ## What can I take in the place of Protegra Antioxidants since I can't find it? ## Here are the ingredients listed on the box.

Btrex Vitamin

Is Btrex a complex of B1, B6, and B12 vitamins? My doctor has prescribed me this vitamin, and I consider that a 30 day supply is expensive when comparing prices with a B-Complex bottle. Your advise is appreciated. ## I was unable to locate sufficient information on this supplement, possibly due to the spelling or if it's only manufactured overseas. Do you know if the spelling is correct? Also, does this supplement have a label on the back with all the ingredients? I only ask because I can tell you based on the ingredients and price if this is really worth what you are paying and whether or not you can find something with a better nutrition profile for a cheaper or equal cost. If this is in fact a B Vitamin Complex and only that, then there are certainly many other brand alternatives...

Folbic Prescription for PAI-1 and MTHFR C-factor

I tested positive for PAI-1 and MTHFR C-factor, and I am pregnant. Why would they prescribe Folbic? Should I also be taking a blood thinner? Help, I am worried. ## I have a history of blood clots and anuerysums and was diagnosed with MTHFR. I am on Folbic twice a day and Bayer Low Dose once a day. I hope your doctor has talked to you by now about starting a Bayer regimen. ## You might want to ask your doctor about L-methylfolate. Women with the MTHFR polymorphism have a limited ability to break down synthetic folic acid (found in Folbic). This puts you at risk for folate deficiency related pregnancy complications. I work with NeevoDHA, a prenatal specifically indicated for women with the MTHFR mutation. NeevoDHA contains active L-methylfolate as an alternative to synthetic folic acid. L...

How to Ferment Wheat Germ h 86 recipe

It seems that to make Avemar (fermented wheat germ) all you need to do is get wheat germ and mix it with water and brewers yeast for 18 hours at 86 degrees Fahrenheit. You can then use it and even make bread with it and eat some each day. Fortunately I don't need it but reading all the people who do it would be a whole lot cheaper than paying $200 for pills and not knowing if it will work. ## OK JOE, can u give me the exact percentage of each ingredient (wheat germ, water, and brewers yeast). Sounds interesting, I would like to give it a try. ## Figuring out the exact percentages of each ingredient would likely be a long shot, namely because the makers of Avemar have not even listed it for their own product. If they did, they'd probably lose out on a lot of business... but maybe...
