Vitamin D3 and C daily, magnesium and iron sometimes.

I heard saw palmetto prevents male pattern baldness. Do you still have hair on the head (not glans) R17?

by Anonymousreply 19May 14, 2024 9:57 PM

I do still have most of my hair, but I’ve taken finasteride since forever. It halted and perhaps reversed hair loss that had begun, but I do still have a small bald spot.

by Anonymousreply 20May 14, 2024 10:01 PM

R15, if you can tolerate it, take a tablespoon of yellow mustard when you get foot cramps, it does help. Magnesium helps with cramps as well.

R15, adding to what r26 said- one of my friends uses magnesium spray on her feet at night for restless legs, and it allevisted her foot cramps, as well. Another friend swears by eating a banana after dinner. My guess is it's the potassium that helps, and there's a little bit of calcium in them, too.

I've read that pregabalin is more "bioavailable" and works better - so I was just wondering why someone would prefer pregabalin. Maybe it's cheaper?

by Anonymousreply 38May 15, 2024 2:28 AM

The problem with gabapentin is coming off it. It's not addictive per se, but one's moods change if one cuts it off abruptly. I've had to ease off from 1800mg a day to now 300.

I hear it's great for withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs though

And I barely noticed any ill effects while taking it.

Just a quick PSA to the vitamin D3 squad: make sure you're pairing it with vitamin K2 (menaquinone), so the increased calcium supply in your bloodstream gets directed into the bones and not deposited into soft tissue. It's sometimes paired with vitamin K1, but K2 is superior and you don't need both if you're already taking K2.

You can also add boron into the mix to extract even more benefits from vitamin D3 (it also helps the body process phosphorus and magnesium), although it isn't necessary unless you have a problem with weak bones.

R15 "My doctor recommended Vitamin D for foot cramps that wake me up during the night. It hasn't worked at all. Oh, the pain. "

I recommend finding a D3 supplement that also includes K2. K2 allows your body to better absorb D3.

I once read this about vitamin D but I can't understand it. Can someone explain? Should I take it????

I've taken nearly every supplement at one point or another. A lot of them are scams, but some work well. Right now, I only take collagen, a multivitamin, psyllium fiber, fish oil and CoQ10.

If you want to increase the size of your ejaculations, take pygeum and sunflower lecithin and drink a lot of water.

Zinc caused my hair to fall out. Ashwaghanda made me depressed and numb. Maca root will make you horny as hell, but the effect only lasts about three weeks. Taking extra Vitamin D3 did nothing for me.

I have neuropathy in both feet. Would magnesium spray help me sleep better at night?

by Anonymousreply 51May 18, 2024 8:59 AM

The D3, K2-mk7, Magnesium triad will clear your arteries and heart of calcium buildup and pairing it with aerobic exercise will push the soft tissue/blood calcium into the bones.

It's not a supplement, but I use Red Light Therapy (I have a small MITO panel) on my feet and knees. I like the results.

A multivitamin a couple times a week.
