Is consuming tropicana fruit juice good for health ?

Is consuming tropicana fruit juice good for health ?

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 more

Does bottled lipton diet green tea citrus have a good source of antioxidants like i've read?

Does bottled lipton diet green tea citrus have a good source of antioxidants like i've read?

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. The antioxidants are not likely going to be viable for that length of time. Raw fruits and vegetables are probably your best bet. Some supplements like astaxanthin and curcumin may help. ...Read more

I mix wheatgrass, barleygrass, maca powder, spirulina, chlorella, psyllium husk and scai berry with carrot and apple juice every morning, is it good?

Nothing wrong: There is no concern about any of the ingredients you mention. Am not sure whether to say it is "good" since other unprocessed foods are probably as good. 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

Unknown: It is not natural to eat activated charcoal. Also, such products are not real medicines but are sold as supplements, meaning their exact contents, effects (good or bad), purity, etc., are uncertain.

I've read that 1tblsp honey and 1tblsp cinnamon w/cup of hot water has many health benefits. Is this true?

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

How good is pomegranate juice for you versus the amount of sugar per 8 oz cup/glass?

Be wary: Most fruit juices are just sugary beverages, providing extra calories — all from refined carbohydrates — without sating appetite. And this is true whether you drink apple or orange juice or one of the fancy new juices like acai berry or pomegranate juice. The added calories can contribute to weight gain and increased risk of both diabetes and heart disease. ...Read more

Any health benefits of drinking "smart 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. Ow. ...Read more
