Buyer Beware

Have you ever picked one grocery item over another because of the health claims on the label? You may have been duped. That’s because terms like fat free or all natural are often slapped on a food item that may not be healthy at all. Look carefully at the ingredients list and see for yourself what is actually contains.

One that recently came to light was on a Fructose Sugar packet. With a lovely logo on the front showing a healthy jumping person and saying “Natural Fruit Sugars” what is did not say on the from was also contains Aspartame.

So look at the ingredients, not just the front!!

On Statins? Beware

It never ceases to amaze me that so many people who take medications have no idea that need to be wary about eating certain foods. The one that I see in clinic again and again are Statins.

Grapefruit & Statins?

Grapefruit & Statins?

Many people taking statins do not know that they should avoid grapefruit. This fruit slows down how the body breaks down the drug and you have more than you should do in the blood stream. So when taking medication please check the instructions in the packet BEFORE taking them!
