Hi, maybe you need to take it for a bit longer yet.

I am wary of what assistants in health food shops advise.

Have you google it?

Sorry to be cynical, but I don’t think you’ll ever notice any difference. I’ve never taken a single supplement that actually made me FEEL any different - even Vitamin D, which I think is just about the only one there’s sound scientific evidence for.

Of course a salesperson said they’d be really good to take - she’s a salesperson!

I still fall for it from time to time, despite thinking, deep down, that I’m wasting my money (apart from the Vitamin D). I’ve still yet to find one that made any difference to anything except my bank balance.

The trouble is (not that it’s really trouble 'cos I’m glad) I’ve not had a relapse for some time either. So you can get hooked on these expensive things, just in case they might be what’s stopping the relapses, and you are scared to stop. A bit like having to do the same lottery numbers every week, because you’re scared they’ll come up the one week you don’t. Crazily, I still take supplements I don’t think are doing anything, just in case they might be, at some level. I’m sure I’m wasting a fortune. :frowning:

Well, a lot of people will sell you Co-Enzime Q-10, but there is no scientific evidence that it is good for anything except weigh-loss - it take pounds from your wallet (and moves them to the retailer).

It has not been approved by the FDA as a treatment for anything, and the best you can say is that it is not harmfull.

This Thursday there will be a programme on BBC2 8pm. ‘Trust me l am a Doctor’ its Dr Michael Mosely - 3part series which will cover which health supplements are good. l like this man - he did the 5-2 fasting diet series/book.

I tried Co-Q10 a few years ago but didn’t notice any difference. Maybe if I’d tried it for longer I would have, but it was quite pricey so I didn’t keep it up.
