    Hi Shabir, can Ionicell be taken by men to support hair, skin and nails?

    Thanks
    Leannan

    Hi Leannan, IoniCell can most definitely be taken by men to support hair, skin and nails and additional offers benefits of protecting the body against the by-products of sugar metabolism which are known to damage the structures within our bodies.

    Hi Shabir
    What is good vitamin/supplement for men to take. I’m trying to get my husband to start taking Vitamins/supplements. He is in his mid fifties and healthy. No more than 3 supplements. Some ideas please and thanks.

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Bonnie, I completely understand and without doubt my list of three would have to include a probiotic and an omega 3 supplement. Probiotics are crucial because our diets lend to their destruction and these beneficial bacteria work to digest food, manufacture energising B vitamins, enhance immunity and perform numerous other roles. Omega 3 supplements are required for maintaining healthy skin, colon cleansing, reducing inflammation as well as hormone production to name a few with many of us having deficiencies of this important nutrient. My third supplement would have to be a food state multivitamin simply because this would provide all the vitamins and minerals in a highly bioavailable form. I consider this as an “insurance” supplement just in case one’s diet does not provide sufficient amounts of all nutrients . All products in the links below.

    Can you take the Sage Complex supplement if you are on HRT?

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Julie, some women choose to use Sage Complex alongside HRT but theoretically there would be no need for it.

    Thank you, just wanted to be sure it was safe but hope to be able to wean off the HRT once Sage kicks in.

    Hi Frances, there are many women that only take one capsule a day to support healthy scalp function and hair growth. But if there is some degree of excessive hair loss then 3 daily would be a good idea for at least a month.

    Hi Milena, declining oestrogen levels certainly affect the skin texture, dryness and more. Primarily the levels of ceramics tend to be reduced due to less than digestion of fatty acids – I would recommend the Skin Restoring Ceramides to replenish these on the extracellular matrix but beware that their migration takes around 60 days.

    Hi! About Fulvic Acid; what are the differences between the Ionicell and the Ful.Vic.Health Elixir? Is one or the other perhaps better absorbed?
    Thank you.

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Lotte, the end result of taking Ionicell and Fulvic Acid Elixir will be the same – it is a matter of convenience though I personally take the liquid which is going to be absorbed quicker into the body but when I travel then the capsules are simply practical.

    Hi Shabir

    I currently take 225mg of Venafexaline a day. This is prescribed by my GP for depression, stress and severe anxiety.

    Before Venafexaline, I had been on Paroxetine for approximately 15 years.

    For the last two years I have also been experiencing panic attacks. This has since been confirmed as a consequence of Perimenopause.

    Will it be safe to take Magnolia Rhodiola Complex by VH and
    Florassist Mood by Life Extension, alongside my medication?

    I’d be most grateful for any advice you can offer.

    Thank you.

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Veronika, Magnolia Rhodiola Complex would not be suitable to use alongside any mood modifying drug. You can definitely introduce Florassist Mood but have you also consider a magnesium supplement? A lack of magnesium may linked to the feelings of fear and panic so perhaps this is something to consider too.
    Best wishes,
    Shabir

  • Veronica Kaneti

    Hi Shabir

    Thank you for your quick reply. So kind of you.

    I will consider introducing Florassist Mood. I have been taking a magnesium supplements for six months now. I’ve dabbled with different brands, commended by Perimenopause/Menopause experts, but my anxiety/fear is still sky high.

    I did in fact find several articles recommending Magnesium Theronate as the best type for dealing with nerves, moods etc. Nonetheless, I’ve struggled to find this particular magnesium supplement. I did find one in the US, but it was very expensive.

    I’d be eternally grateful if you could recommend an appropriate magnesium supplement. If I’m truly honest, I’m desperate. I haven’t been able to work for a year now. The daily anxiety, panic attacks, brain fog and insomnia are debilitating.

    Apologies for taking up your time Shabir, but your knowledge is priceless.

    Kindest regards
    Veronica

    Hi Veronika, Magnesium Threonate is found marketed as Neuro-Mag and it remains one of our best selling magnesium supplements. If you find that the Neuro-Mag is too expensive then please consider the use of magnesium citrate such as Magnesium + by Food Science with a dose of one capsule twice a day as per link below.

  • Amanda

    Hi Shabir

    I am looking to introduce some supplements into my daily life. I am 45 and feel like I have low level depression and lack motivation and focus. I know what I want but just can’t seem to make it happen! I have never really had a great digestion – although this has improved since I left a stressful job a year ago. I have started to get acid reflux. I was told I have Hashimoto’s (I am not medicated for this) and my thyroid levels are being checked every year and are in normal range according to doctor). I have noticed hair loss and thinning hair line. My nails are strong and grow well but are ridged and look dry. My skin is in good condition and I do not have breakouts. I do not take any medication or contraception.
    Any recommendations and dosages would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
    Amanda

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Amanda, the concerns you have highlighted appear to point to what is termed adrenal stress often associated with declining female hormones. My recommendations would be as follows:
    Use Sage Complex at a dose of one capsule three times a day to mimic the female hormones, restore energy levels.
    Use Magnolia Rhodiola Complex to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol which is responsible for numerous concerns including mental fog, anxiety, low level depression and a lack of motivation.
    With the introduction of these two supplements, you should experience benefits within the first four weeks but I would also recommend introducing Ionicell For Women to try and tackle thinning hair.

    Best wishes,
    Shabir

    Hi Shabir,
    I take a multivitamin with probiotic, omega 3, and 150mcg levythyroxine. I’ve just received my Ionicell and seen Iodine therein but it doesn’t say how much. My multivitamins contain 100% – would I be OK to take Ionicell, too?
    Thank you.

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Sharon, All the minerals in Ionicell are in small quantities and, many cases trace levels. This is helpful in cellular health but is not significant enough to effect the thyroid. The amount of Iodine in Ioniplex is .006%. Please bear in mind that whatever the content of iodine or for that matter any mineral or vitamin in a multivitamin, you will not absorb 100% and at best our bodies absorb between 50% and 60% from oral tablets and capsules.
    Best wishes,
    Shabir

  • Sharon

    Hi Shabir,
    Thank you for that information – I didn’t expect you to reply so quickly!
    Kindest regards,

    You are welcome Sharon.

    Hi Julia, I completely understand how overwhelming this can be and for sure I will try and support this. Although you may not experience any symptoms of menopause, there is a phase called perimenopause. Since all hormonal glands communicate with each other using hormones as chemical messengers, the adrenals (stress and energy) are the first glands to get affected causing the release of excess amounts of the stress hormone cortisol. Whilst the adrenals are busy producing cortisol, they do not produce sufficient energising hormones resulting in the signs of fatigue. So it is important for you to consider a herbal supplement that works to mimic the female hormones such as Sage Complex.
    Additionally, I would recommend that you use the following supplements:
    Alive Multivitamins – to ensure no nutrient deficiencies exist.
    An omega 3 supplement such as Neubria’s Krill Oil or Lion Heart Fish Oil capsules, vital because we cannot manufacture these and so have to supplement through our diet.
    A magnesium supplement to enhance energy and help with concentration such as Neuro-Mag.
    Incidentally, cortisol also encourages excess insulin production which is the fat depositing hormone within our bodies resulting often in mid-riff weight gain. I would hope that keeping cortisol down by addressing lower female hormone levels will also work to gradually shed this weight.
    Best wishes,
    Shabir
