I mix wheatgrass, barleygrass, maca powder, spirulina, chlorella, psyllium husk and scai berry with carrot and apple juice every morning, is it good?

Nothing wrong: There is no concern about any of the ingredients you mention. Am not sure whether to say it is "good" since other unprocessed foods are probably as good. It is an interesting combination of ingredients. I presume you did some research before choosing them? If you feel it helps you then there is no reason that i know of not to continue with it. ...Read more

Does organic Spirulina or Chlorella interfere or interact with birth control? Some studies recommend that women on bc take spirulina. Is it ok?

Does organic Spirulina or Chlorella interfere or interact with birth control? Some studies recommend that women on bc take spirulina. Is it ok?

No interference, OK: Spirulina and Chlorella are good sources of many nutrients and are not known to have any adverse interactions with Oral Contraceptives (OC's).
OC's can increase our bodies needs for B vitamins as well as Vit. C, E and minerals like zinc. While spirulina and chlorella can supply these (which is why they are recommended) I advise taking a quality
multivit. as well. See http://tinyurl.com/jcqozg2 ...Read more

I'm 36y/0, amh=0.4. What is your opinion on coenzymeq10, royal jelly, wheat grass/germ in improving low ovarian reserve? Any other supplement suggest

No good Data: There is no good data for any of the things you have listed.

The standard thought is advanced (ivf) treatment offering best chance for pregnancy. Based on testing you likely have endometriosis and exploring this. ...Read more

Is wheat grass safe to drink in a powdered form? And is it less nutritional?

Cows like it!: But they prefer the natural form. I don't think wheat grass has any "special" nutritional value in any form. It helps the seller much more than the buyer/user. Honest. There are many claims of healthy benefits ranging from heavy metal detoxification to preventing cancer. I think this is just a relatively (bad tasting) harmless form of modern snake oil. Sorry. ...Read more
