Grape Juice Glycemic Index
Sweet grapes ok for diabetics? Is Glycemic Index what we should look for in foods? To my shock, grapes are relatively low on the GI chart.
Glycemic index: The glycemic index is not the be-all-end-all. Your body's reaction to complex foods is complex. A high GI food, when eaten as part of a whole (unprocessed) food diet and combined with other foods will not be so bad. Grapes contain sugar, and in excess will elevate blood sugar, but in moderation are ok. Better to eat fruit than drink fruit juice. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Allergy: Are you truly allergic? What are your symptoms? Maybe it is an additive in the "type" of grape juice you are drinking. Have you tried juicing white and purple grapes yourself and still had the same problem? If "yes" to all of the above, then it is likely a component of the tannin in the grape skin you are reacting to. Read more
Grape juice and ETG:
No. ETG is caused by alcohol. Not grapes. It detects ethyl glucuronide (a breakdown product of ethanol, so grape juice should not interfere unless there is some alcohol in it.

No it does not: Vaginal odors indicate a vaginal infection. The most common infection associated with a discharge and odor is called 'bacterial vaginosis' or bv. This is easily treated with a prescription from your doctor.

Similar to wine...: Some studies suggest that grape juice might have as much of the nutrients as found in wine but w/o alcohol. However, no studies have proven any clinical outcome benefit.

No studies: Within the science of medicine, I am not aware of any studies that would have examined whether grape juice is good for the vagina. Having said that chemicals that give food certain tastes and smells are excreted in body glands, some of which happen to be located in the vagina. Therefore, vaginal secretions can assume the taste and/or smell of foods that women ingest. Http://mysecretceres. Com/5-foods-and-drinks-to-improve-your-vagina-taste/ Read more
I doubt it: You're taking creatine for muscle-building, right? Some folks have expressed concern about acid in some juices breaking down creatine, but these juices are far less acid than your stomach, you're not going to let the stuff sit in the juice, and we know creatine makes it through your stomach fine. Mix it with whatever seems right. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Interactions: I would have thought that the bit of vitamin c in grape juice would have helped you absorb the iron better, but actually the Phenols in Red or Dark grape juice prevent the absorption of iron. So you will absorb less iron with dark grape juice than with water, but it shouldn't make you sick. Read more

Grape juice does not: Affect absorption of geodon (ziprasidone)Get a more detailed answer ›
Took iron pill with grape juice not grapefruit, Welch's grape juice. Idk if that's bad or not. I drank water and ate afterwards.
It may actually be helpful to take iron with juices rich in vitamin C because iron is more easily absorbed when taken with vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is the strongest iron inhancer, reducing ferric iron to ferrous iron.
Avoid iron inhibitors like tannins in tea, red wine and phytates in nuts, seeds, grains and cereal. They prevent non heme iron from being absorbed Read more
