Is it healthy to drink "vitamin water Zero XXX"?

Is it healthy to drink "vitamin water Zero XXX"?

Reasonable choice: Vitamin water zero XXX is sweetened with erythritol and stevia, which are relatively safe non-caloric sweeteners, and also has vitamin C, potassium and some B vitamins. I think the best drinks are pure water and organic teas but if you are craving an occasional sweet drink this is a reasonably healthy choice. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Can I drink coke zero and vitamin water instead of coke, and loose weight?

Can I drink coke zero and vitamin water instead of coke, and loose weight?

No; not healthy.: Artificial sweeteners have been found to have a multitude of side effects because they are metabolized into methanol and formaldehyde. Formaldehyde has been found to cause migraines, cancer, heart palpitations, gastrointestinal and neurological problems. You would be better off to avoid all sodas, diet or not, and focus on drinking more water and herbal tea. ...Read more

Gave up diet soda a year ago. I drink 2-3 liters of water daily plus 2 Vitamin Water Zero daily with lunch one & dinner for flavor. Safe choice?

Gave up diet soda a year ago. I drink 2-3 liters of water daily plus 2 Vitamin Water Zero daily with lunch one & dinner for flavor. Safe choice?

I think this sounds: Pretty good. Vitamin Water Zero passes a lot of nutritional tests: it is calorie free, has no artificial sweeteners (sweetened with Trulia and fructose) and no artificial dyes. You are getting 200% of the vitamin C recommended daily value (100% in each 8 oz), but close to 100% of a handful of B vitamins and a boost for a few more. Total fluid intake: about 84 to 118 oz daily. Generous but ok:) ...Read more

Is it possible to drink too much water in a day? And can drinking too much water in a day flush out the vitamins you took that day?

Is it possible to drink too much water in a day? And can drinking too much water in a day flush out the vitamins you took that day?

Over hydration: It is possible to drink too much water to the point of being dangerous to your health. The easiest way to avoid that is to monitor your urine. As long as it is a pale yellow you are likely drinking the right amount. If your urine looks clear you are probably drinking to much - the dander there is that you won't have enough electrolytes in your body (salts and minerals). You won't wash vitamins out ...Read more

I suffer with anxiety. What type of vitamins do you recommend. I just started on woman's ultra mega chews & drinking much more water. Any other advice?

I suffer with anxiety. What type of vitamins do you recommend. I just started on woman's ultra mega chews & drinking much more water. Any other advice?

Not vitamins alone: First your vitamin does not contain natural vitamin e. They use the synthetic form: dl-tocopherol rather than natural d-tocopherol. This makes a difference in how well your body can use it. Second, vitamins alone are not sufficient treatment for anxiety. You could benefit by also seeking out a therapist for evaluation, and cognitive behavioral or other therapy for anxiety. It works. Be well. ...Read more

Yes BUT: You need to read the labels carefully. Some have few carbohydrates and others as many as over 40 grams of carbohydrate. The numbers of calories therefore vary quite a bit.

There are so many brands of multivitamins out there! How do I choose the right one? I drink a lot of water will that affect the effect of the vitamins?

There are so many brands of multivitamins out there! How do I choose the right one? I drink a lot of water will that affect the effect of the vitamins?

Multivitamins: You're right, but there are some guideposts, such as whether or not natural vitamin e (mixed tocopherols and trienols) are used; content of vit. D (should be at least 1000iu); using beta-carotene rather than retinols, etc. For helpful info on how to select vitamins, see: http://www. Multivitaminguide. Org/ there's also a list on the site, but it doesn't include every single good product available. ...Read more

Need some good diet tips. I'm currently trying to shed like 45/50 lbs. I've tried so much. I also cut out the fast foods. I never really liked drinking soda. I'm stuck on water, vitamin water. Also diet green tea. And I will shed a few lbs but end up gaining it

Counting: Counting calories and keeping a food journal can be two of the most effective ways to lose weight. Being accountable for what you put in your mouth by writing it down and being aware of calorie values will make you think about what you are eating. It is important to eat a good variety of foods, so as long as you count your calories, nothing necessarily has to be "off-limits". Get a kitchen scale and weigh your foods in order to know exactly how much you are eating and therefore how many calories. The healthiest diets involve whole grains, lots of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, fish and moderate dairy. Sugars and added oils/butter should be used sparingly. You need to eat at least three meals a day, though some people will advocate more frequent, smaller meals. An exercise program with a lot of cardio (brisk walking every day is the best!) is also important for muscle tone, strength, and cardiovascular health. Good luck! ...Read more

How much water should one drink per day to keep the body&facial skin hydrated. Vitamins are good for facial skin and any recommended fruits for skins.

Textbooks recommend: 8 eight oz. glasses of water daily. It may be too much for some folks. Vitamin E capsules are helpful for skin. Avoid lotions w/alcohol - too drying. Eat the rainbow--lots of variety in the colors of the fruits and vegetables you eat. Peace and good health. Vitamin E oil can be applied lightly and directly to problem areas on the skin.

Is it advised against to take 1 packet of vitamin C emergenc. 1000 mg/day? I don't drink any juice, soda, etc. Just water and wanted to add that 1xday?

Not needed: You can take it with little likelihood it will harm anything. If you take multivitamins then you should be OK. It is not going to prevent a cold as far as we know scientifically. The hydration part helps the most. I would suggest to start drinking juice to help your system. ...Read more

What are some healthy dairys? I eat healthy and a lot but only drink water and not many dairy foods. Oh and I take a multi vitamin.

No dairy is OK: You don't have to drink milk or eat dairy to be healthy. Lots of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts, and seeds are adequate. Water is the perfect drink, 4-6 glasses a day. Keep with your multi-vitamin. If you want to try greek yogurt that might be a dairy option for you, but not necessary. Better yet, look for good vegan recipes and resources. ...Read more

My urine is a neon yellow color and I don't take vitamins. What could cause this and should I be worried? I drink water and eat ice all day long

Urine color: Normal urine color ranges from very pale yellow/or clear (when it is very dilute) to dark yellow, almost brown when it is extremely concentrated (i.e. You're not drinking enough fluids). The color is affected by certain dyes in foods, a common one is due to the riboflavin vitamin you mentioned. As long as it continues to vary in this range, being mostly yellow, there is nothing to worry about. ...Read more

Do you snore?: Sleeping well can be deceptive. A person can think they sleep well but snore and have multiple wakenings. Many other things can make people feel tired all the time like depression, thyroid, anemia, etc. So getting your doctor to examine you and get a good history is important. ...Read more

Doing a cleans, can I use miralax (polyethylene glycol) and then matamucul 30 min later? For 7-10 days? I take multi vitamin day and night and drink lots water?

Bowel clensing: I often use MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) 238 grams in 64 oz gatorade as a colonoscopy prep. This is used only for 1 day. I would not use this for 7-10 days as this could cause electrolyte disturbances. Metamucil can be used on a daily bases but make sure you maintain adequate hydration. ...Read more

I have hair growth vitamins but they came in a capsule and I'm having trouble swallowing them is it safe to open it and drink it with water?

Best to ask pharmacy: In many cases opening a capsule to extract medication which is either in pellet/sprinkle form, or liquid gel does not affect the medication adversely. However, the purpose they are placed into capsules or enterically coated tablets, etc. Is so they can be protected from stomach acid, other drugs, or dissolve slowly and be absorbed over time in the gut. Best to check with pharmacist. ...Read more

What should I do if I have this little dryness in my throat I have tried drinking something like vitamin water or something and it is still dry?

What should I do if I have this little dryness in my throat I have tried drinking something like vitamin water or something and it is still dry?

Try lemon juice: Try adding lemon / lime to water. If that doesn't work you need to have your glands that secrete liquid into the mouth checked and find out why the dryness.
Most antihistamines make the mouth dry.
If dryness is due to parotid gland blockage or inflammation, may respond to taking Clear. Ease lozenges that contain papain and bromelain that reduces swelling/blockage.
Need to rule out other causes. ...Read more
