Thanks for writing your query.

Absolut 3G capsules contains Gineseng, Ginko biloba, Grape seed extract, green tea extract, Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.

Some of its components act as antioxidants and can have beneficial effects.

But I would advise that he should be clinically examined and investigated to know any medical cause for his symptoms.

Following investigations can be helpful :-
1. Complete Blood Count(CBC).
2. Liver Function Test(LFT).
3. Urine examination.
4. Thyroid profile.
5. Vitamin B12 and Folic acid.
6. Vitamin D3 levels.

I hope this is helpful to you.
