Will drinking carrot juice surpress autism and improve a person's mental state?

Will drinking carrot juice surpress autism and improve a person's mental state?

No: Carrot juice has no effect on autism. Whether or not it effects anyone's mental state is a personal issue. If some believes the juice is tastey or otherwise potent, their belief in it can have a positive effect.

What's the difference between secretin and urogastrone? Both of them did inhibit the secretion of gastric juice right?

What's the difference between secretin and urogastrone? Both of them did inhibit the secretion of gastric juice right?

Secretin/urogastrone: Urogastrone is a polypeptide secreted by the salivary glands and by brunner's glands, which is a potent inhibitor of gastric acid secretion. Secretin is a digestive hormone secreted by small intestine. Secretin causes the pancreas to release digestive enzymes which break down food and help the body absorb nutrients. Secretin inhibits gastric acid secretion.

Explain the role of secretin in regulating bile and pancreatic juices?

Explain the role of secretin in regulating bile and pancreatic juices?

Important hormone: Secretin is important in digestion. When stomach acid flows into the duodenum (small intestine) secretin is released. The secretin stimulates the pancreas to release bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) which helps digest food. It also enhances the function of cck which is important in gallbladder function. Secretin is stopped from working when the ph of the stomach is blocked with certain medications.

How good is pomegranate juice for you versus the amount of sugar per 8 oz cup/glass?

Be wary: Most fruit juices are just sugary beverages, providing extra calories — all from refined carbohydrates — without sating appetite. And this is true whether you drink apple or orange juice or one of the fancy new juices like acai berry or pomegranate juice. The added calories can contribute to weight gain and increased risk of both diabetes and heart disease.

Can we give home made pomegranate juice for 13weeks old baby?

Can we give home made pomegranate juice for 13weeks old baby?

Why?: At that age complex food or drink items provide a risk of a food reaction without any real benefit to the child. They have crude taste buds & need nothing more than breast milk or formula at that age. After a year the gut has matured and more complex items can be offered with minimal risk.

What to do if a friends baby has septo-optic dysplasia and someone told her to try pomegranate juice.?

No effect: This condition should be followed by a neurologist or a neuro-ophthalmologist. There is no evidence that pomegranate juice has any effect on this, but if your friend is convinced it would help there is no harm using it and it might be better if you do not say anything about this.

Is cranberry pomegranate juice is good for kidney disease?

Is cranberry pomegranate juice is good for kidney disease?

Fruit juice: There are no direct data to say yes or no. Cranberry extract does help recurrent UTI by reducing bacterial adhesion to ureter and bladder. Ponegranate can reduce renin angiotensin presence, and this can reduce BP a bit but can elevate potassium in blood. Both juices contain anti-oxidants, and anti-oxidants are beneficial for kidney disease. However, potassium retention is the larger concern.
