Well you can google : It. It is a see which has beneficial antibiotic properties and also can be eaten. It is used in poultices and can be used to purify water. Most western medicine doctors are not trained to make poultices but in the past they were used for many ailments.

Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout?
Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?
None will effect gou: Gout is related to URIC ACID and PURINES, not amino acids or protein supplements. BUT, since everything you mention is a complete waste of money, why bother to ask? There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...Read more

There was no real cancer protection from additional soy. The best soy comes from natural soy or very little processed soy such as edamame, soy nuts, tofu and tempeh.

Not especially: Spirulina is blue-green algae found in salt water and some fresh water lakes. It is a source of protein, B-vitamins and iron. Some have promoted it as a weight loss or fatigue treatment but there isn't much scientific evidence to support great effectiveness for blue-green algae supplements.

Adjunct only: Soy is promoted by the "natural healing" community as a source of estrogens; ironically, "greens" publish disinformation about estrogens in the environment causing us terrible harm. I hope you'll see through the huckstering and get your acne treated scientifically. If benzoyl peroxide / retinoic acid haven't cleared you in a few weeks, you'll need your physician's prescription-strength choices. ...Read more
Absolutely: Alimentum and nutramigen are the first two that are readily available that come to mind. They are a bit more expensive, but very easy to digest and no soy anything. They don't taste as good, so if the baby scoffs at eating them, can put one drop of vanilla in the entire bottle to flavor. ...Read more
