Vitamin interaction with PCOS

Hello all!!

I was hoping to find someone in here who knows about vitamin interactions?
I am currently taking Inositol, N-Acetyl-Cysteine, and Omega-3 and I also want to introduce Magnesium, zinc and Selenium. Is there any reason I should not take these all together with a meal?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much, Jordan x↓

I think your NAC should be taken apart from food -- amino acids generally do better that way.  The rest are fine with a meal.  Be careful with zinc -- make. sure you don't supplement with too much, it's toxic in high doses.  Now, as for the specific question of whether these should be taken with your health problem or whether they're going to do you any good or not if you're trying to treat it, you'll probably need to seek professional guidance -- that's a pretty specific problem.  Doctors probably won't know anything about using natural medicine for anything, unless you find one who practices integrated medicine -- if you do that would be a great person to ask.  A naturopath might know, might not.  As this is at least in part a hormonal problem, I'm not sure where you're going with these supplements, but I'm guessing you have looked in to it.  But if you don't know if they're okay with this problem, you haven't looked into it well enough yet so again, make an appointment with someone who knows both the nature of your problem and the nature of natural medicine.  Good luck.
Thank you so much for replying!! No my gyne didn't really have any idea what I could take to treat this without the contraceptive pill so I've spent manyyy hours online and reading up on what I can take. The supplements I have started and am looking to introduce are the best I can find for what I need -- balancing hormones and increasing regular healthy ovulation. Thank you so much for your help!!!!!
I'm not sure any of the ones you've chosen balance hormones.  Usually certain herbs or precursor hormones are used for that, as well as certain foods.  But again, given the specific nature of your problem, you want to make sure you do good and not harm.  I'd very much recommend talking to a professional rather than trying to do this yourself.  Knowing what hormones you have too much of and which too little of would be important.
