What to take for increase HB level.When I was pregnant then doctor advise for increase Hb level as tablet JPERON.But when found I am thal minor then the prescribed doctor changed the medicine and advise only for taking Folic acid.He said other elements of JPERON will be harmful for me.

May I take regular folic acid?Will it be helpful for increase HB?

Yes, folic acid must be taken when pregnant or when trying to get pregnant. It prevents birth defects and should be taken by all women who could have children. All thals can also benefit from folate because it helps to buiild red blood cells and platelets. The best form is L-methylfolate.
Some women do also need iron while pregnant, but if a good balanced diet is eaten, that includes iron rich foods, supplements for iron shouldn't be needed.

Dear Andy,
I really want to say thank you so much for your useful information.
I have a kid 7yrs old. Daily, he only takes acid folic, vit e ( 400 iu ). Sometimes, he takes Kindervital as your advice. In this post, you mention B complex. But there are many kinds, i don't know what kind is suitable for him, liquid or tablet. Pls kindly help me.

htuongvy,

The second one would be better for a child. It's sublingual, which means the child should swish the liquid around under the tongue for a minute before swallowing it.

Andy,
You mention B 100 complex, but that only have B12, so according to you what kind is the best for him? I need your help to order all medecines because in Vietnam, we don't have them.
Thank you.

The second one you listed is a B complex with added B-12.
He can take both.

Thanks for the feedback on carnitine. I am a big believer in its necessity for thals, especially as they grow older.

Thank you for sharing mgk.  My son was on L-carnitine for many years.  He's an athlete so I think it helped him in many ways.  He hasn't taken it for the last few years - his life has gotten busier, but I will get him back on it.

I read that there are also studies that indicate that Carnitine in large doses could be bad for one's health. I'm always skeptical towards certain supplements that also play a big role in the fitness industry. There is often just too much "New Wonder Supplement Found!" in all those studies.

sofear,

I understand your concerns. 

My son was prescribed a dose from the doctors at the Oakland comprehensive centre where they have studied it very closely in thals.  I think that this may benefit others as well.

The needs of thals are very different from the general population.

sofear,

What is meant by large doses of carnitine are the ridiculous size doses used by body builders. These doses are as high as 30 grams daily. This became such a problem that L-carnitine is only available by prescription is some countries.
1000-2000 mg daily is a safe dose.

Hey Andy!

I have eaten vitamin supplements now for years, changed my eating habits to a high-nutrient density diet and have increased cardio exercise with cycling and swimming, lost -15kg and i feel more energized than ever! Big thanks to you and this community for giving me the first step to change my lifestyle to a healthier one!! 


I'm going to a lab to check my levels of cholesterol, omegas, insuline, ferritin, vitamins (b9, b12, c, e) and minerals (calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc).

This lab offers huge list of things to test for a fair price, is there anything else important i should also test?
