A Doctor's Advice
It would be best to initially seek the advice of a licensed physician prior to taking in any supplement. Factors such as lingering illnesses from the past and present, age, allergies and prior medications that may react in a bad way should always be among the things to consider prior to intake. Consultation with a physician about supplements and the name of the preparation is not enough. In most cases the other ingredients in the supplement must also be evaluated to determine if the product is safe. Providing physicians with a list of the entire ingredients on the label and any information that can be gathered about the supplement such as advertisements or brochures can indeed help. People should not solely rely on what advertisements tell them about the product. Breaking down the supplement composition and referring these to the more familiar people who know more about nutritional facts, can help advise anyone on the pros and cons of such supplements. Besides, not all supplements may be ideal and right for the people in a program, and may even make things complicated if not worse at some time.
