Soft geletin capsules, r they non vegetarian and made if animal bones? I brought dexorange iron capsules it is coated in soft geletin and im vegetarian

YES; other options: Yes, gelatin is derived from pork skins, pork, horse & cattle bones or split cattle hides, though there is now also gelatin from fish (generally labelled as such). Many vegan iron preparations are available. One of the best-absorbed forms is ferrous bis-glycinate, available as opti-ferrin c by pure encapsualtions, advanced ferrochel by source naturals & solgar gentle iron. I also like floradix. ...Read more

Girl, 6, allergic to nuts 40, 80 kua/l, soy 4, 62 kua/l and others. Should we avoid soy lecithin? What about food that "may contain traces of soy"?

Girl, 6, allergic to nuts 40, 80 kua/l, soy 4, 62 kua/l and others. 

Should we avoid soy lecithin? What about food that "may contain traces of soy"?

Lecithin is safe.: Now for the "traces of soy" question: it all depends on the reaction that triggered the soy allergy discovery. If she had a severe reaction when she ate something which contained soy, then you have to be careful with those products. Be extra careful. They are warning you. Would you feed it to her if it said "this may poison your child." now, if her reactions were mild, see comment below. ...Read more

Is vegan food free of dairy?

Yes: By definition. If you want to become a vegan for moral reasons, be sure you know exactly what you are doing, and take the supplements you need, or you will ruin your health quickly.

8 wk old milk/soy protein allergy -on neocate, &allergic to rice. Showed similar reaction to nutra that contained rice/corn starch-allergic to starch?

8 wk old milk/soy protein allergy -on neocate, &allergic to rice. Showed similar reaction to nutra that contained rice/corn starch-allergic to starch?

Milk Allergy: Allergies are due to a reaction to protein. Corn is a starch or carbohydrate. If you infant reacted to nutra, it would not be from reacting to the starch. I assume the reaction was either eczema or bloody stools, not gas or a change in stools. If the reaction was not eczema or bloody stools, your baby may be intolerant and not allergic. ...Read more

Help,son 15 months old,opened whole fish oil 1000mg,wheat germ 100 mg per caps,2 caps and ingested,mouth smells fish,don't think mercury free?

Help,son 15 months old,opened whole fish oil 1000mg,wheat germ 100 mg per caps,2 caps and ingested,mouth smells fish,don't think mercury free?

Child should be ok: Fish oil caps are intended for maintenance use and if mercury content was high, it would not be safe for adults either. About 6 oz of wild salmon will provide about 2000 mg of DHA, and it is thought that infants over 6 months can have up to 3 oz a week, so avoid further fish in your infants diet for the next few weeks to be sure. ...Read more

Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

REALLY UNHEALTHY!!!: This is recipe for disaster. Potatoes are in the environmental working group's dirty dozen foods-they're high in pesticides if not organic & are readily converted to sugar so raise blood sugar, causing weight gain & increased risk of diabetes. Generic "vegetable oil" is almost certainly corn, soy or canola which are all gmo if not organic & very toxic, fried potatoes have carcinogenic acrylamides. ...Read more

I take flp product containing stabilized aloevera gel, fructose, natural cranberry and apple juice, sorbitol, ascorbic and citric acids. What are uses?

I take flp product containing stabilized aloevera gel, fructose, natural cranberry and apple juice, sorbitol, ascorbic and citric acids. What are uses?

Many uses: I'm curious why you're taking a product you don't know the use for. The active ingredient is aloe vera gel- everything else is for flavor or preservatives. Aloe vera has many proven health benefits- it helps reduce inflammation, lowers blood sugar & cholesterol, soothes inflamed GI tracts, etc. You might look for aloe with less added sugars.
