Topic: Supplements?

Hello Everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  My husband would like to know if anyone is taking any over the counter supplements and your opinions on their usefullness...good or bad.  He currently takes garlic, fish oil, omega 3, melatonin, and green tea.  He has also been eating alot of veggies...spinich, brocolli, califlower, carrots etc.  He hasn't began any kind of treatment as of yet but had been doing alot of reading & research.

Re: Supplements?

Hi Karen....I am sure for you to be receiving some answers for the question.  Just wanted to pass on that the "Search Function" might lead you to some previous discussions on nutrition.  You might just want to use a key word such as "supplements" or "nutrition" and keep playing with it.  This is always a great question and it generally leads to some interesting discussions. 
Best of wishes coming your way,
Marion

Milk Thistle helps with the liver. I am taking it now and there has been a real difference in my liver function tests. I took it for ages then stopped for no reason other than laziness, but I did notice the results in my lab work.

Re: Supplements?

For up-to-date information and research on nutrition and supplements, I (and other people) recommend the book Anti-Cancer, by D. Servan-Schreiber. It not only gives recommendations, but explains the science behind them, and has copious references if you want to check up for yourself.

Hope this helps!

Kristin

Peace, hope, and healing to all!
