Is taking Malta Guinness dangerous to pregnant woman?

Is taking Malta Guinness dangerous to pregnant woman?

No: As far as I understand, Malta Guiness is completely free from alcohol. Some "alcohol-free" beverages like O'Douls and Vino actually have small amounts of alcohol (about 0.5 percent), so they are not really alcohol free. If large amounts are consumed, significant amounts of alcohol can be absorbed, and there is no "safe" amount in pregnancy. However, Malta Guiness is listed as zero alcohol. ...Read more

Have an upset stomach, took malta and gargled w salt water for acid, does this help. I have acid reflux?

Acid reflux: Instead of Malta and salt water, you might consider using antacids such as Tums (calcium carbonate) or Mylanta. Generics are fine. In addition, avoiding particular foods which make your problem worse, with most people reporting that tomatoes, onions, citrus fruits, chocolate, and garlic are frequent problem foods. I would also avoid tobacco and alcohol if possible. If this does not help, see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

If the problem persist seek out an Ophthalmologist for an exam. ...Read more
