Best Vegetable Juice Brand
Don't base on taste!: In choosing aloe vera juice i believe taste is much less important than which is most beneficial- do you want a good tasting brand that is ineffective? And different people may have different ideas on which tastes best- it's a bit like asking which wine tastes best! there are many brands, each claiming to be the best. In my comment are links to help you choose quality brands. Taste them yourself! ...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
I take flp product containing stabilized aloevera gel, fructose, natural cranberry and apple juice, sorbitol, ascorbic and citric acids. What are uses?
Many uses: I'm curious why you're taking a product you don't know the use for. The active ingredient is aloe vera gel- everything else is for flavor or preservatives. Aloe vera has many proven health benefits- it helps reduce inflammation, lowers blood sugar & cholesterol, soothes inflamed GI tracts, etc. You might look for aloe with less added sugars.

Person diagnosed with gallstones, is it safe to try epsom salt, apple juice, olive oil, and lemon juice cleanse?Nutritionist gave this recipe.
Can a breastfeeding mother do a juice cleanse? Fresh juiced fruit and vegetable juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner?
Sure.: It doesn't sound like it would have adequate calories for the woman, but should be fairly nutrient dense (watch out for too much sugar), but not harmful to the baby. Sometimes babies can be affected by the foods their mothers eat (i.E: get constipated babies if moms eat broccoli, or drink milk). ...Read more

8 month old can't stay regular. We tried pears, pear juice, and mixing prune juice w/formula. What's a safe amount of prune juice to give daily?
What is a better choice for daily maintenance of bowel regularity? Aloe vera caps or pure psyllium husk powder?
Psyllium if organic: The gel of aloe vera has many healing properties but the skin, used as a laxative, is a harsh purgative best not used regularly. Psyllium is much safer ; gentler but can have pesticide residues so i advise organic psyllium (organic india is one source). Also consider triphala, an ayruvedic formula with 3 fruits- see http://www.Planetherbs.Com/specific-herbs/the-wonders-of-triphala.Html. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is vaping with 0mg nicotine safe while pregnant (To help ease the habit)? The ingredients are: water, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin,& flavoring
Not recomended: inhaling aerosolized chemicals isnt best for you or for the baby. Vaping is a new product in the market and the effect on lungs/babies are still not fully understood. I would use this time to kick the habit to ensure that you give your baby the full potential to grow without interruptions by potential stressors like smoke ...Read more
Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?
Yes: These are safe though I wouldn't take them all at once. I advise the multivitamin after breakfast, the probiotic at the start of a meal, the fish oil after lunch or dinner, apple cider vinegar in water separate from meals and the psyllium at bedtime. Some multivitamins are far better than others- see https://drrandybaker.com/2012/11/ and https://www.multivitaminguide.org/best-multivitamin.html ...Read more

Yes: As Dr. Rudnick states, it's wise to find and treat the cause, but for now Aloe juice is very safe and has many benefits (http://tinyurl.com/o6eh7dw). However, it's not particuarly effective for constipation. The rind of the plant is a strong laxative but generally the rind isn't juiced. You can use rind extracts occ. as a laxative. Make sure you are on enough thyroid: http://tinyurl.com/6gvsxqu ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not realy: Vegetable juice can be an easy way to increase the amount of vegetables in your diet, but you shouldn't routinely use it to replace whole vegetables. While vegetable juice has plenty of vitamins and minerals, it's lower in fiber and less filling than is a serving of most whole vegetables. Enough fiber in your diet may reduce your risk of constipation, high cholesterol, high blood sugar. ...Read more
Is it true drinking a combination of lemon juice, ginger juice, garlic juice & apple cider vinegar, mix with honey will reduce cholesterol?
Yes: Diet coke offers nothing over a glass of cold, clean water except the taste, the fun of the bubbles, and a bit of caffeine. Vitamin water has the advantage of a tiny bit of vitamins, enough to make it smell funny. Pay for whichever one you want to spend money on. How about some fresh fruit for the sweetness and enjoyment instead? ...Read more
