Called the doctors this morning they told me to give my 11 day old baby Apple juice an ounce cause of constipation! Now I'm scared, was this safe??

Yes: The sugars in apple or prune juice are not absorbed as well in young infants which helps them work like an adults laxative. I routinely use an ounce up to 3 times a day to get a kid unstuck. ...Read more

Should poop out: A person drinking lots of apple juice usually poops out, due to sugars and sorbitol in the apple juice. The person will actually get too much sugar from drinking too much juice (can lead to bad things like diabetes). A 56 year-old who gets new changes in her bowel habits, such as new constipation, should be checked out by her primary care doctor (wouldn't want anything bad happening in the colon). ...Read more

Had constipation for 3days. And hard stool, after eating a senoko pills and after few hours i ate apple and prune juices i had a dirrehea . Why?

Time to work: seneko pills take time to work- you may have already had the hard stools before the seneko pills became effective. By the time you had the prune juice, it sounds like the prune juice and the seneko had both kicked in to give you diarrhea. The best thing for constipation is a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables which provide natural fiber. Drink plenty of fluids as well Good health to you ...Read more

Found out apple seeds contains cyanide. Been juicing whole apples for 2 months (3/day x 60 days = approx 180). Is it enough to cause poisoning?

Dr. Tony Ho Dr. Ho
1 doctor agreed:

No: Last i saw, it was speculated that even with complete extraction of the cyanide compounds with complete pulverization of the seeds (assuming the sides aren't intact, which would make the cyanide inaccessible), it would take 85 grams, or half a cup of pure seeds to get to a harmful level.
