Thanks for the query.

To be honest and XXXXXXX I don't favor use of such supplements and in my opinion these products don't help in extra-ordinary way. So it’s always better to avoid them. I would suggest more of concentration on balanced diet.

I know this is not the answer you are looking for, but many doctors would like to agree with this; though they are not harmful.

Please ask if there are doubts or you want to discuss this further.
