Is sodium coco sulfate safer than sodium lauryl sulfate?

Not sure: Not sure about all those ingredients in our shampoos, conditioners, soaps, and creams. I presume they all end up in our waters when we shower.

Safe to take lorazepam w/ nature made magnesium supplement(mag ox, cellulose gel, croscarmellose sodium, mag stearate, silicon dioxide, stearic acid)?

Safe but not best Mg: It is totally safe but magnesium oxide is a very poorly-absorbed form of magnesium- it may work as a laxative but won't raise your magnesium levels! you would be far better off taking magnesium glycinate, taurate or citrate! see http://drcarolyndean.Com/magnesium_miracle/. ...Read more

Is sodium lauryl sulfate bad in skin products ? Is using organic or sulfate free products better?

Is sodium lauryl sulfate bad in skin products ? Is using organic or sulfate free products better?

Irritating...: That ingredient makes it a better detergent, perhaps, but also is irritating to skin, eyes. On the other hand, claims about its carcinogenic properties have not been substantiated. Companies are hyping their products as sulfate free to improve their sales. If lauryl sulfate based products are working for you and not causing irritation, I would not worry about that ingredient. ...Read more

Can these cause any issues with hearing :potassium chloride, disodium phosphate dodecahydrate and sodium dihydrophosphate dihydrate?

Can these cause any issues with hearing :potassium chloride, disodium phosphate dodecahydrate and sodium dihydrophosphate dihydrate?

Hearing: It is unlikely that any hearing loss is related to the items you list. Hearing tests are essential - I have had them and am wearing hearing aids. Many big stores offer hearing tests at no cost. In my area it is Costco or Sam's Club. There should be something like this all over the USA. ...Read more

Can I take vitamin C pills (always made of sodium/potassium bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) ascorbate, benzoate...) w. pulmonary hypertension requiring low sodium diet?

Can I take vitamin C pills (always made of sodium/potassium bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) ascorbate, benzoate...) w. pulmonary hypertension requiring low sodium diet?

Yes, however...: I strongly advise you take Vitamin C, ideally 1000 mg 2-3x/day, but you should try to find forms without sodium. I don't know what's available in Denmark, but in the US you can find ascorbic acid, or calcium or magnesium ascorbate without sodium. Lypo-spheric Vit. C is esp. well-absorbed,but has 120 mg of sodium, but a low sodium diet usually allows 2000mg/day. Vit. C is best with bioflavonoids. ...Read more
