Is it safe while pregnant to use Advocare products?

Not worth the risk: Some of advocare's products contain ingredients that are not proven to be totally safe in pregnancy (such as caffeine). You are much better off taking prenatal vitamins instead, which can help keep you and baby healthy. Read more

I'm wanting to take something to boost my weight loss. I am looking into advocare. Is this a safe product to take?

I'm wanting to take something to boost my weight loss. I am looking into advocare. Is this a safe product to take?

Why: Would you want to put unknown chemicals into your body when you don't know what they are or what harm they could cause? Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. There are no supplements on the market that "boost" weight loss, they only steal your money. Try eating less and exercising more. It works, and it doesn't put stuff in your body or cost money.

Is Advocare spark safe?

Is Advocare spark safe?

Discuss with your Doc: This preparation contains 120 mg of caffeine and many vitamins and minerals. Not knowing your general health status or medications that you take, I think it would be best for you to discuss this with your family physician and bring a bottle of it in with you to his office so that he knows exactly what is in it. If he or she tells you that it's safe make sure you stick within the guidelines of how many per day he or she allows you to have. Best wishes to you. Read more

Is it safe to take the 24 day Advocare while im on acutane?

Is it safe to take the 24 day Advocare while im on acutane?

Advocare+ Accutane: Hello~ short answer YES its OK to take, but I read the 24d challenge on their site and I saw nothing that could be attributed to sound medical practice. The concept of biological "cleanse" is based on false premise. You cannot "cleanse" the bowel. If you did you would not be able to digest food. Using metamucil daily would do same and better. PURGING is bad! Thanks Read more

I'm on 3 different meds for HBP. Is it safe for me to be on Advocare products?

Save your money: This is a pyramid scheme making money for a few people taking advantage of the ignorance of many suckers. Do not believe any of their claims. Nutrition is best with food, not pills or magic drinks. Get plenty of exercise. Eat a variety of vegetables, salads, fruits, nuts, dairy, etc. Keep your weight controlled. Read more

Is Advocare products effective for safe use (24 day challenge)?

Is Advocare products effective for safe use (24 day challenge)?

Can't know for sure: It is not a good idea to take anything with "health claims" or "medical claims" that is not an fda approved drug, because non-approved drugs and treatments may or may not have correct ingredients, and may or may not have pure ingredients. Also, the advertised effects may or may not occur in humans, plus the side effects are usually uncertain and unadvertised. It's safest to avoid marketing hype. Read more

Is it safe to take my 40 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) while doing the Advocare 24 day challenge?

Is it safe to take my 40 mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) while doing the Advocare 24 day challenge?

There was some: Controversy about one of advocare's products being tainted with clenbuterol, which can increase blood pressure by constricting blood vessels. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 's active ingredient, adderall, also increases blood pressure. Both are fda category c in pregnancy, meaning some effect on the fetus has been found. Check the ingredients in Advocare ; make sure you're not pregnant before starting Advocare products. Read more

Is it safe to try the 24 day Advocare cleanse if you have high blood pressure?

Is it safe to try the 24 day Advocare cleanse if you have high blood pressure?

It should be fine.: My common sense advice is not to take ur BP and cholesterol meds at the same time as the cleansing agent. Perhaps spacing them apart by 6-8 hours to prevent malabsorption of ur meds. Best wishes! Read more

I get anxiety attacks and heart palputations and my chest hurts after I drink caffiene. : (is it safe for me to take the Advocare 10 day cleanse?

I get anxiety attacks and heart palputations and my chest hurts after I drink caffiene. : (is it safe for me to take the Advocare 10 day cleanse?

Cleanse: Why do you think you won't get anxiety attacks when you start 'cleansing'? These things basically are diarrhea inducing agents, so when you start this you may trigger off anxiety or palpitations or both. It likely won't be dangerous but you are likely to react with anxiety. Another point is, there is no solid evidence that these 'cleanses' do anything really positive for you health wise. Read more
