Celery, carrot, cucumber, banana, apple, mango, water melon puree is this good for my  health and what benefits could i get ? I'm now 36 yrs. Old  ,

Sounds yummy: I trust you are not adding a lot of sugar. This has vitamins and minerals and the key is that you are eating this instead of the salty / sugary / greasy stuff most people overeat. There's no magic in the fruits and vegetables, but it's a great choice and a move toward a healthier lifestyle generally. ...Read more

Is garcina gambosia safe at 2100 mg a day? Can it be taken with african mango?

Is garcina gambosia safe  at 2100 mg a day?  Can it be taken with african mango?

Why would you take?: Even though it was mentioned by dr. Oz (who generally isn't very accurate on medical topics), it doesn't seem to decrease weight, fat breakdown, or energy expenditure in overweight people. There is some mixed evidence that garcinia might help people feel full but this needs further study; it's too early to recommend. T can cause nausea, headaches, etc., so can't be recommended at this time. ...Read more

Is it bad to eat a whole mango for a one off. Also is it bad to suck the mango pit/seed and is it bad to eat a tiny bit of the skin?

No. No. No.: People eat one mango at a time, the entire mango. Here in California, we buy them by the box, which is about 18-24 mangoes. Nibbling all the good stuff off the pit is what we do. A few people like a little bit of the skin for flavor; most people just toss the skin. As long as a person is not allergic to mango flesh, skin, or sap, it's fine to eat a mango. ...Read more

Many of these things go away on their own, but if big enough may need medical attention. See a doctor for testing. ...Read more
