Are 10-15 gr of goji berries per day safe in pregnancy? So far, i've taken this amount every day (i don't eat meat):is my pregnancy(4 month)in danger?

Unknown, prob. fine: As is often the case, there is little research on this subject. Some people say that goji berries contain betaine (; perhaps other compounds) that can cause miscarriage but if you did not have a miscarriage in the first 3 months it is unlikely now. Others recommend 10 gr/day- see http://www.Thesuperfoods.Net/goji-berry/should-you-take-goji-berries-during-pregnancy

I eat almost 30 goji berries a day and acne it has mega doses of vitamin a does that mean I will get toxic overdose? How much goji is too much?

I eat almost 30 goji berries a day and acne it has mega doses of vitamin a does that mean I will get toxic overdose? How much goji is too much?

I have a better idea: You're taking a proactive approach to your health, but why not choose something that will actually work? Diet's not the key to managing acne. Anyone telling you that goji berries are especially nutritious, or that acne is best treated "naturally", is misleading you. If topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid haven't cleared you in two weeks, your physician can add something that will. ...Read more

I love fruits and berries but i was told that these carry carbs and I am trying to lose weight. I was told to limit carbs but aren't these food good?

Good for you: The nutritional value of fruit especially berries make them good for you in spite of their carb content. Carb loaded foods without the extra nutrition are the ones that are important to avoid. Like everything else moderation is your best friend...Too much of a good thing is not good. The basic rule to keep in mind when trying to lose weight is that you should eat less calories and exercise. ...Read more

It is an interesting combination of ingredients. I presume you did some research before choosing them? If you feel it helps you then there is no reason that i know of not to continue with it. ...Read more
