The contraindications, particularly on St. John's Wort, is why when I teach people herbal remedies for use in medieval fantasy settings, in addition to explaining I'm not a doctor and I shouldn't be trusted for medical advice, that medieval remedies that do work (for example: willowbark) do so because they are actual drugs with very real side effects and risks (like bleeding, Reye's syndrome, or allergic reactions), and often are where our medications are derived from (like aspirin).
Many others are either really dangerous at least in imprecise natural doses (pennyroyal), or just don't work (spiders wrapped in raisins for fever).
Melatonin usually doesn't help because people take too small doses. When I upped my dose from 0,1 mg to 3,0 mg it actually started helping me get sleepy when I felt too awake. Valerian helps you relax as well. And CBD oil reduces stress too.
This is definitely perhaps not the most accurate - especially when it comes to genetic mutations. There’s a lot of research behind this. Common ones are mthfr and this mutation needs FOLATE, not FOLIC ACID.
Really? This Video is so wrong. 2,4ųg of B12 2000ųg of D3 and 2,5 mg of Algae Omega DHA is all you need and to be honest most of the other suplements are bad for you so don't take any of them maybe creatine but it won't do much.
Hey, awesome video! I know you must get a lot of requests, and I don't know how much research on this is out there, but could you guys do a video like this one on seasonal allergy medications? (Like Zyrtec, Allegra, Claritin, etc.)
A new study suggests that Folic Acid Exposure in utero is associated with the development of food allergies. (I'm not saying that the risk of food allergies is worse than the risk of spina bifida, but that more research is needed and I thought SciShow might be interested in this information)

FOLIC ACID EXPOSURE IN UTERO IS ASSOCIATED WITH DEVELOPMENT OF FOOD ALLERGY

As long as you're choosing an absorbable (liquid or finely powdered &/or made from foods) supplement, the right multi-vitamins (for the given person) are *incredibly* useful, especially if they are either dieting or too poor to eat as much as would be ideal, which many, many, many of us are. I wasn't really hurt by the contrary remark in your video, but wanted to point out that it was a little bit erasing. <3
many multivitamins don't provide, for example, recommended amounts of iron or zinc, however, which one still needs to consume enough of. I'm also not recommending not eatting, but $1 in multivitamin may do more for one than, say, a $2 "bean and cheese"(translated soy and additive) burrito. $1 in kale may be a good compliment if it's true that kale is high in iron. I personally find a meal of kale and blueberries($2.50/18oz, this summer) amazingly satiating, possibly because of the kale's chewyness and all, but seemingly also because it is satisfying some looming deficiencies. I feel nice afterward, and i bet that it's only partly because i'm not stressed about what i just ate.
Whoa slow down there partner. Serotonin doesn't pass through the blood brain barrier, so if someone put it in your melatonin, it couldn't interact with a drug like an ssri. Now, if it contained 5-HT or tryptophan, yes, that could potentially cause a problem.
My psychiatrist said based on clinical studies he read, microdosing melatonin is the best way to try it, less than 0.1mg. Works pretty well for me at such a dose.
Pregnant "people"??? 🤨🧐 BTW...lemon balm is good for mood, as well. I take it. It works. Also Vanadium is known to benefit people (particularly children) who have had high carb/low mineral diets. It helps add absorbable chromium for the brain.
There's a great reason to take a multi, who is monitoring and measuring out their food and making sure they're getting proper nutrition (besides athletes)? Does anyone you know do that? How many people do you know who actually eat the recommended daily intake of fruits and vegetables per day? Take a multi and don't worry about it, you'll pee out what isn't needed.
Anyone here know about the effect of B (12?) on skin disorders caused by excess alcohol? My doc recommended it, saying that alcohol inhibits uptake. He also recommended much more strongly reducing alcohol consumption! Anyway I'd be interested to hear views. To end on a lighter note, I once ran a trial to test effects of small doses of sugar. Half the subjects took sugar pills, the other half took sugar pills. Just kidding.
What about D-vitamin for those who lives far up in the north? Lack of vitamin D, due to too few sun hours sun during winter, is a rather big issue. In the far north, where there can go months without any day light to speak of, supliments for this is quite helpful. Another common solution is so called sun lamps, wich as the name suggests produse vitamin D in a way similar to the sun.

Vitamin & Minerals: D3, C and magnesium. That's all You need to supplement from microelements. The rest You can easily get from food. Even vitamin C is quite easy obtainable from food, but higher doses, like 500-1000mg a day can have some positive effects.
while I think your information is useful - I don't think the scientific research has given much attention to the benefits of vitamins and minerals in treatment. we spend tons more on prescription medicine which is more abused than vitamins. I have wondered if our FDA figures we see on vitamin / mineral bottles are accurate for men and women alike and for people of all weights, ages and ethnic backgrounds.
Over the past 10 years I’ve taken many supplements and during that time I’ve read and kept notes. I see benefits from many of the things that I take and try to determine if I could get the same results from foods. The amount of food that I would have to eat to equal the amount of say vitamin C or many of the other amino acids and vitamins would be unreal. I would have to eat all day long to get the benefits but then I would just be a huge fat slob. This is great YouTube channel but many of the times they state things that are just completely untrue.
Eating meat is a suicidal behavior: bad for the planet (climate change, land use), major source of pandemics, source of antibiotic resistance, resource intensive and burnt nitrates equals carcinogenic nitrosamines.
I and others had great results with NAC for depression and anxiety. What does NAC do? 1.stops neuronal death 2.supports neuronal growth 3. Stops glutamate toxicity 4. Leads to elevated glutathione production 5. Reduces oxidative stress 6. Reduces inflammation 7. Helps to increase healing potential of some SSRIs. 8. It does something to dopamine and serotonin too, but not so significantly, that it cannot be taken with SSRI.9. Supports neuroplasticity. Plus it helps to protect liver and against cancer. But with those who already have cancer it makes metastases grow 3 times faster. There are studies on its positive effect on negative symptoms of schizo, bipolar 2, one case study on anxiety and at least three ongoing studies on unipolar depression. But verify these claims yourself, I may be wrong. 😉
This video is very disappointing. St Johns Wert is not a supplement, it is a drug. Not mentioning vitamin D?! Unless you get out in the sun on a regular basis you probably need more. If you live in the northern hemisphere and experience depression in the winter, your body is crying for vitamin D. Your doctor will test your levels if you ask, and the research supporting supplementation is vast. I also take magnesium for my nervous system system and omega 3s for cardiovascular health. Highly recommend doing your own research and taking supplements based on your age, your diet, and your personal medical conditions.
Folate and Thiamine were given to prisoners in jail. Rates of recidivism plummeted.
Helps regulate mood stabilizing neuro transmitters.
Your glucosamine sulfate study doesn't line up with the evidence. There is only efficacy for N-Acetyl-Glucosamine(NAG)
A good proportion of the population are deficient in vitamin D as well, it's worth getting the level checked. Many are deficient in winter and not summer due to the reduced sunlight as well. Vitamin D deficiency can be quite serious.
One caveat with Saint John's Wort that was left out is that you should not take it if you have bipolar disorder. Like any antidepressant, if you have bipolar disorder and take it without a mood stabilizer, it will trigger a manic episode.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
