Bitter gourd: The claim is that this lowers blood sugars and is good for diabetics. I know of no scientific evidence to support this claim, but if you want to try it, it should not be harmful except to your wallet. ...Read more
Absolutely Not: Adds: As animals we need little to no carbohydrate (all sugars, simple & complex) intake. Yet most humans have a sweet tooth. Not all fruit can be sold before spoiling, esp. not at higher prices, plus people will not buy fruit what has been frozen, thus lots of fruits are converted to juices which can be frozen & stored smoothing out labile supply & prices. However all fruits high sugar: very unhealthy. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Probably not: Once the tea is mixed with water, the antioxidants start to break down. By the time the product gets from where it was first mixed to when you drink it could be weeks or months.

Some supplements like astaxanthin and curcumin may help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it true drinking a combination of lemon juice, ginger juice, garlic juice & apple cider vinegar, mix with honey will reduce cholesterol?
I mix wheatgrass, barleygrass, maca powder, spirulina, chlorella, psyllium husk and scai berry with carrot and apple juice every morning, is it good?

The blueberries.: The healthiest part of a blueberry muffin would be the blueberries therein. Muffins by definition are not healthy, and making a muffin with blueberries or bran or apples won't magically make the muffin a healthy food.

I've read that 1tblsp honey and 1tblsp cinnamon w/cup of hot water has many health benefits. Is this true?
It depends: I doubt you'll find scientific evidence as to the health benefits. That doesn't mean it is hype. A lack of evidence doesn't exclude the possibility of significant benefit. I find it best to have supplements tailored to the individual. In the U.S. naturopaths are often the best bet. If you have access to a good herbalist & I have a bias toward Chinese Medicine. (Cinnamon commonly used) ...Read more
Be wary: Most fruit juices are just sugary beverages, providing extra calories — all from refined carbohydrates — without sating appetite.

The added calories can contribute to weight gain and increased risk of both diabetes and heart disease. ...Read more
Does drinking water with an added flavor enhancer w/ caffeine, like mio energy, defeat the purpose of drinking water?
No. Lots of sugar.: Smart water *sounds* like it's healthy but it's not. One bottle has 7 teaspoons of sugar, even more than 12 oz bottle of coca cola [though i'm not saying that you should drink coke instead]. Plain water is healthiest. Crave flavor? Add a slice of lemon, lime, orange or cucumber. Make your own iced tea [flavored green tea or herbal tea]. Only thing smart about it: makes your pocketbook smart.
