Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. These are indeed a lot of supplements that you are taking. Most of these are relatively safe to take if your doctor has approved of them, and if taken within the recommended daily dosage without exceeding. These specific supplements include, magnesium, D3, B12, and omega 3.
The rest of your supplements are specific brands/formulations to which we do not have specific information on. We can neither support or deny the claims made by these supplements and we recommend that you take these at your own risk. The best thing we can advise you to do, is to try to obtain all your nutrients from natural whole foods in your daily diet. Such foods include dark green leafy vegetables, fruit, lean protein and complex carbohydrates.
