No insult meant by you not you not answering any question, so no offence taken by me. I'm not that thin-skinned.

Taking supplements isn't what I wondered about. I too beleive in getting the majority from healthy eating. Just curious in general about which compounds are broken down & which aren't. I wondered if there was a rule of thumb. I know there's different ways of making it though the digestive tract into the bloodstream. I think I'll rvisit my biology prof, she's head of the department & could probably direct to the right place.

> Judy - I'm sorry; I had left a message on the original post (under Bill's NADH thread) that I did not know anything about NADH.
> As for which supplements break down in the stomach, I also do not know. I guess that a rule of thumb would be, the larger, more complex the molecule, the more likely it is to break down. Since we do not know what the active ingredients are in many supplements, it would be impossible to say to what extent they break down. I don't think that I have seen a website about this either.
> I am also a firm believer in getting vitamins from raw vegetables and fruit. I do not take a vitamin supplement (my wife feeds me properly), but many women do not get enough iron in their diet. If you are unsure that you are getting enough niacin in your diet, you could take a supplement. I would not take only niacin, but the whole B-complex of vitamins, as they work as a group to re-establish the mylen sheath on nerve cells, etc. You can look for any vitamin that says "Stress" in the title. They usually contain the B-complex of vitamins and vitamin C (which doesn't hurt). Also, a supplement of B and C with iron would not hurt. The B and C vitamins are water soluble, so it is very hard (but not impossible) to take too much of them. Your body pees off the excess. The vitamins that are fat soluble, and may build up in the body if taken in too high of doses are A, D, E, and K.
> BTW I do not read every thread anymore, so do not feel offended if I do not answer every question posted to me. Sometimes I do not know the answer, &/or I feel someone else has answered (or will answer) the post better than I could. As with the NADH post, I am either too busy &/or too lazy to research an answer. I feel that this is one of the perks of volunteering for a site, rather than being hired by them. ;^)
