2-3 cups per day: Research studies have proven benefit of eating the juice of 3/4 pound of blueberries a day for 12 weeks. 3 cups of fruit a day is recommended, though you can also include other anti-oxidant rich fruits like raspberries, blackberries, cherries and grapes. Even more fruit might help, though wise to choose less-sweet fruits like those mentioned. See http://tinyurl.com/ktfla for more on blueberries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No particular limit: Vitamin C being a water soluble vitamin doesn't have a specific cut off for its upper limit of use on a daily basis.

If you are referring: to refined sugar, then as little as possible. High fructose corn syrup is also something to avoid. In the US it's in many pre-packaged foods. Eating a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables will give you all the natural sugars you need. Peace and good health. If you want a sugar replacement please don't use chemical sweetners. You can use a root called stevia instead. ...Read more

1 hour: Limit screen time to 1 hour of computer time if you can. There really isnt much need to be on the internet much more than that anyways and anything a 10 year old is doing on the internet more that 1 hour per day is likely not a great situation for them. 2 hours total of screen time with tv, computers and games. But 1 hour is even better and more is unneeded anyways. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No real limit: In cases of extreme mercury pollution, people have gotten terribly sick from eating fish. No one has been able to show any risk whatever from any level of consumption of any normal fish. The newest studies show more mercury but less pathology in fish eaters, and fish-eating kids seem smarter. The EPA's stuff is about politics snd appearances, not science. My informed opinion; ask your physician. ...Read more

It depends...: This depends on what form as tribulus comes as standardized extracts of various strengths. The whole root powder is taken in doses of up to 6 grams a day while extracts are taken in doses up to 750 mg/day.

Unknown: Testofen is advertised as a fenugreek extract. Tribulus is sold as the tribulus terrestris plant. Some sellers are claiming they are testosterone enhancers. Because they are not real medications approved by the fda, nobody knows what the effects and the side effects are. Especially with plant materials, each batch, and definitely each company's product, can be hugely different in what it contains. ...Read more
Inconclusive: Some studies suggest benefit but most do not. Probably safe as a supplement for a short time if you're healthy but it has risks including possible prostate problems in men. It may interact with some meds (beta-blockers, digoxin, calcium channel blockers) and may cause blood sugar to go too low in diabetics. The spiny plant (also known as puncture plant) is unsafe to eat. ...Read more
Sometimes: Although tribulus reportedly increases testosterone, in our practice the effects are modest at best. For an individual with severe deficiency of testosterone, tribulus alone is rarely satisfactory. I would also expect that there is a wide range in the quality of tribulus since the active ingredient content varies depending on how the plant was grown... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Shouldn't be a prob.: As long as you take them with enough water there shouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately neither of these have great evidence to support their use. Creatinine is taken to help with muscle growth and endurance, but controlled studies have been conflicting. Tribulus is used to increase testosterone levels, but once again this didn't prove true in controlled studies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
