http://www.DrAngelaAgrios.com - Multivitamins can help improve health and energy if they are high potency. In this video Dr. Angela Agrios, ND (A California Licensed Naturopathic Doctor) explains how to find the best multivitamins and understand potency levels. She discusses:
• Centrum, a low potency multivitamin and probably not the most useful multivitamin to take.
• That 100% RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) is really the absolute lowest amount of vitamins and minerals someone needs to take every day not develop a disease state; therefore, taking supplements at only 100% RDA levels isn't really doing much.
• What we really want are multivitamin supplements that offer many times the RDA to ensure we get maximum amount of nutrition for repair and healing.
• Thorne Extra Nutrients is a high potency multivitamin.
• Liquid multivitamins are easier to take than pills, for many people.
• Morning breakfast smoothies with rice or pea protein work well.
• Fiber can be added to the multivitamin smoothie.
• Flax oil can also go into a smoothie.
• Most nutrients in a multivitamin are water-soluble.
• Vitamin A: no more than 2,500 iu for pregnant women.
• Don't take folic acid; rather, take folate acid in your multivitamin.
• Milk Thistle is an herb that Dr. Angela Agrios, ND recommends for everyone because it helps promote liver health.
• Vitamin A ought to be in the multivitamin, as should Vitamin D.
• Vitamin C and Vitamin E are important and ought to be in multivitamin supplements.
• There ought to be thousands of percentages of B Vitamins in the multivitamin supplement.
• Zinc, copper and selenium need to be in the multivitamin, as should magnesium and calcium (but not too much calcium).
• One great formula is Pharmax Four Pillars

The notion that a pregnant woman should not get over 2500 IU of retinol vitamin A is a misunderstanding. The Recommended Daily Allowance for pregnant women is 2,500 to 2,567 IU/day. This is the MINIMUM amount required to maintain basic health for a pregnant mother mother and her baby. Confusion was created by the Rothman study. Because of this confusion, scientists from the FDA, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, and Harvard Medical School published a review of all the available studies. They noted that the Rothman study was inconclusive: They said, "... there are a number of methodological questions concerning the study that prevent reaching the conclusion that the dosages of vitamin A (10,000 IU) examined in the study cause certain types of birth defects." At the request of the World Health Organization, the International Vitamin A Consultative Group, a panel of scientists that advises the World Health Organization about retinol, assessed the Rothman study and the other available data and determined that no risk of birth defects occurred at 10,000 IU per day, stating: "lt is safe to give fertile women, independent of their vitamin A status, as much as 10,000 IU daily at any time during pregnancy."
Subsequently, the World Health Organization produced a paper titled "Safe Vitamin A Dosage During Pregnancy and Lactation,' which notes that it is generally understood that the mechanism by which retinol could cause birth defects is through the influence of high concentrations of retinol metabolites at critical points during the early development of the embryo.
World Health Organization scientists stated that the concentration of retinol metabolites required to cause birth defects " ... does not occur at vitamin A dosage levels of 10,000-15,000 IU, but only at levels above 30,000 IU."

Please help me...my daughter at 20yrs old decided to get 2 'rods' put into her arm as a contraceptive, which are progesterone only. I wasnt happy about this but she was determined. Within a very short time she began to have severe stomach pains which occurred with everything she ate at almost every mealtime, which apparently progesterone can do this. She would cramp badly and eventually lost so much weight because she became afraid to eat. After a few months i took her to my GP to have them out. Since then, 2 years ago, she has been able to eat but has had sometimes monthly, sometimes twice a month, 'episodes' of severe lower abdominal bloating, acompanying nausea, with vomiting and diarrhea where she is laid low for up to 3 days. These seem to be particularly bad after heavy exercise, like football, tramping, tennis. 6 months ago, finishing her 4 year degree and thesis, she wrote so much, exercise went out the window and so did the 'episodes'. She was not bothered at all and gained a little weight but was eating healthy. Last Christmas she went tramping with her father, played tennis and came down with another 'episode' after 6 months of no episodes. I wonder if some of her hormonal system was very affected by the progesterone rods and something is out of balance. She is on the waiting list at the hospital for a laparoscopy explore for endometriosis in 3-6mths. I panicked because a 'specialist' said that they could insert an IUD if endo was found. To me that is another 'insert of hormone' that is not needed. I would love some help as to what we could do that is natural for hormones and getting to the bottom of this. Any ideas anyone?

I learned more about Supplements on this video than all the reading and searching in my life, lots of questions I had were answered and now I'm confident now what my body needs, thank you very very much.
There have been some questions about popular brand supplements. In this video Dr. Agrios is giving yo some advice on high quality supplements that she recommends. Yes, there absolutely is a difference. Just like there is a difference in food quality found at conventional stores and health food stores, the same is true for supplements. Get you supplements at a health food store. Some great brands include: Now, Source Naturals, Gaia Herbs, Herb Pharm, Solgar, and others. If you are goind to spend the money, and going to take supplements, take the high quality ones.
+TELEVISIONARCHIVES Whole food supplements are best to cover the gaps in nutritional deficiencies. Glucosamine and chondroitin have proven effective for joint pain, as just one example. Dr. Joel Wallach promotes the importance of feeding the body the 90 essential nutrients required for optimal health. He doesn't receive any money from the supplements company he represents to avoid a conflict of interest.
I\'m not sure but ,if anyone else wants to uncover natural remedies recipes try Lomonting Home Remedy Mentor (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my neighbor got cool success with it.

On today’s market there are many products with such orientation, but most popular is advertised brand Viagra tablets.
Appropriate tests show a positive result, which is about thirty per cent of all subjects. But here it is necessary to take into account the psychological aspect, since a positive result will not be at the unwillingness of sexual intimacy.
