I use the ARA6 in powdered form and was wondering if it must only be mixed in cold liquids because the label on the product states not to expose it to excessive heat.

It is fine to mix the ARA 6 in hot liquids. The intent of the label is to dissuade people from storing the product in an oven, in the trunk of their car in summer, etc.

Does/can ARA-6 feed H.pylori, the ulcer causing bacteria? Are there any gastrointestinal conditions that are worsened by taking larch product? 

Larch arabinogalactan is a food source for Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli. I have never come across information suggesting its use by any other organisms. 1-2 percent of individuals will often have some transient gas or bloating subsequent to the introduction of this product. This is more likely to occur in women (I have yet to see men with this complaint). Typically the GI discomfort resolves within several days as your GI bacteria become accustomed to this new food supply. I have seen rare occasions when an individual will have continued discomfort. In these rare cases it is best to discontinue its use.

I would appreciate it if you could explain how and why these two products are supposed to be used. I take ARA 6 every day....about 2-3 tsp. for fiber and better immunity, but what is the purpose of ARA Plus and would a person want to consume both of them. 

The ARA-plus also has mineral ascorbates and quercetin, but its use is essentially the same, for immune and colon health, as that of ARA-6. There is no reason to take both. In general, we use the ARA-6 much more frequently, but give the ARA-plus to people who would prefer a capsule. In order to get the maximum benefits as a fiber, it is more cost effective to go the route of using the powder.

So how much soluble fiber (in grams) is in it? Is it enough of an amount to consider as part of my total daily intake?

1. 8 grams of soluble fiber per 2 grams of larch arabinogalactan. Container sizes are 60 gram, 100 gram, and 1 pound (454 grams).

I (O-) have been using ARA6 (2 tsp/day) for the past 3 months, in place of Psyllium as a source of fiber (it works great). Since then, long dormant allergies have re-surfaced. I suspect that the ARA6 may have over-stimulated my immune system (I rarely get sick). Have you had any experience with this? If this might be the case, I would like to try either the NAP UDA Plus or Urtica dioica as an immune modulator, before giving up on ARA6. Which product has shown to be better at reducing allergies?

ARA-6 is much more of an immune balancer so I have not personally seen it over-stimulate the immune system.

Would a Type A typically expect the same benefit from Bladderwrack that a Type O would?

No, not exactly but it is certainly a great seaweed for all blood types. According to Dr D'Adamo, the anti-lectin and anti-adhesion properties of fucus are going to greatest in O's. A's that have one O parent (so you would be an AO) would gain some of these anti-lectin/anti-adhesion benefits. A's that are AA would not get these benefits. In addition to the anti-lectin/anti-adhesion benefits, Bladderwrack and other seaweeds have many other health benefits that can be of useful to all blood types.

I know you can't give advice on this forum, but I wonder if you could tell me if it were relatively safe for a type O to take bladderwrack with synthroid, at least while the fucus is building up in the system.

As far as I know bladderwrack is fine to take with synthroid.

I'm an O and I take the fucus. When is the right time to take them before or after you eat. Or maybe away from food?

It is probably best to take fucus with food.

By using the B12 product can the body become dependent on the supplement form of B12? Is this true for any supplement?

The body is dependent upon B12 and other vitamins for enzyme activity to start with, so I am not quite sure what you mean. My assumption is that you mean...will we now only be able to function well on higher doses. Some people believe that if we take a high amount of a vitamin for a duration of time and then discontinue its use, we will temporarily experience a relative deficiency while our body is reestablishing homeostasis at the lower dose. I don't know if anyone can say without a shadow of a doubt whether this is true or false, but it sound reasonable. My suspicion is that it might be true for some people and irrelevent for others, so the best advice I can give you is taper of high doses of vitamins gradually if this is a concern.

Should this product be taken in addition to regular B12 or does it also control homocysteine?

The methylcobalamin for of B12 (found within B12 active) is the form of B12 most specific for lowering homocysteine. Any other form of B12 would have to be transformed into methylcobalamin in the body before it would have any effect on homocysteine. Cyanocobalamin, the form of B12 in most supplements is not found in nature. Meaning it is not in plants, animals, or even bacteria. The cyanide in this molecule must be eliminated and then the cobalamin must undergo several steps within the body in order to have any beneficial metabolic activity. The B12 active provides a more finished product.

Read your article on Collinsonia... thank you. I was wondering if this herb has any side effects if you use it a lot? Will it lose it's effectiveness if used frequently?

We have not observed any side-effects with using collinsonia long-term in our practice. This does not mean that side-effects of some form are not possible, but we have not seen any and herbal reference books do not list any. Its effectiveness does not seem to be compromised if used for prolonged intervals. However, with most herbs and collinsonia is no exception, it is a good idea to take 1 week off every 6-8 weeks if using for sustained periods of time. This is just a good rule of thumb to make sure that effectiveness of herbs is sustained. The adult dose of collinsonia is often 2 capsules twice daily. For a child, the equivalent dose would be a fraction of this depending upon the child's age and weight. But it is always fine to start off dosing any new supplement at the lowest amount (1 capsule) to start with just to make sure it agrees with the individual. Then increasing this if needed.

Can Cortiguard be used if a person has adrenal insufficiency (and probably low cortisol levels) or is it strictly for someone with elevated cortisol levels?

The majority of the ingredients have a bidirectional (or normalizing) influence on cortisol. In other words they act to prevent too high or too low levels in response to the daily stress of life.

Would you please explain why someone would be taking Cortiguard. Would it be that cortisol levels should be measured first or can I just go by symptoms? I am under the impression that it helps with anxiety and I was taking it twice a day to help me sleep through the night without waking up at 3 am. So far, it seems to be helping, but is this something I can take indefinately or is it for short term? Just confused if this supplement energizes or helps calm a person down and therefore I wonder if taking it close to bedtime is apppropriate. How often and how much and for what symptoms does one take Cortiguard?

Dr D'Adamo created Cortiguard A to promote a healthy and balanced response top stress for A's. It is safe to take long-term. The herbs used are considered adaptogens so they would tend to have a bi-directional effect on cortisol (e.g. lower it if it is high and increase it if it is low), and mood/energy, so, while measuring cortisol is always useful, it is not required. The other substances in this product would also be considered adaptogenic for the stress response. FDA regulations prohibit or at least make it dicey to discuss specific symptoms with respect to a supplement. But maybe even more importantly, stress can show up as anything from lowered immunity to cold hands and virtually anything in between, and A's tend to be extra sensitive to the effects of stress so have to be a bit more aggressive on stress-proofing themselves. So the general response is 1-2 twice daily to promote a better ability to handle stress (the A achilles).

Is Catechol O an avoid for A's and B's? I would like to naturally boost my dopamine levels.

Catechol O can be used by any blood type. It was designed for O's but I have found A's benefit from it on occasion.

I just received my first bottle of Catechol O. When should the 1-3 recommended doses be taken? Should I take them with meals, or on an empty stomach? If the latter, how long before or after meals should they be taken? I was previously taking tyrosine on arising in the morning with about 4 oz. of juice, to spike insulin and prevent the tyrosine from being metabolized for energy, then waiting at least 45-60 minutes before eating breakfast. Would this also be true of Catechol O?

This is fine to continue. Supplementing amino acids away from food like this is often considered preferable by many alt med practitioners; however, this is, as far as I know, a belief system rather than a fact based preference. Many people also take this with food and it still seems to be useful.

My O husband just started taking catchecol O. He has always had an unexplained inner tension. It is leaving. He can't believe s supplement could work so well -- So I gave some to a friend, also an O, she has always had the same unexplained inner tension and can feel results after only a few. With these successes I sent some to my O daughter.

Thanks for the nice feedback Sue. I will pass it along to Dr D'Adamo as well.

Is it possible that a person with Type A blood would require the use of Catechol O? I have type A blood, and took Cortiguard A without any noticeable improvement. I switched to Catechol O, and had marked improvement.

The answer is yes. Catechol O can be helpful for A's as well since they can rapidly eliminate many of the neurotransmitters this product was designed to help. Additionally the tyrosine in the product does help the blood type A stress response. I am glad you experimented and had a possitive result.

Can someone please tell me whether DGL should be taken at mealtime or on an empty stomach.

It is fine to take with or without food, but some studies suggest a bit better digestive results are obtained when DGL is chewed and mixed with saliva prior to swallowing (so this would entail chewing the capsule).

I have tried the Deflect with a few foods that are avoids for me and have been very satisfied with the results. I have had no problems with adverse reactions and everything went along smoothly as if I had not deviated from my normal ER4YT diet foods. understand that two capsules are the recommended dosage for a meal with avoids. Can you tell me how it works when I have a fruit or item like a banana that is an avoid for me. Does one banana require two caps or will one cap do?

There is such variability in the lectin content of foods even of the same type that it is difficult to make any absolute dosage recommendation. As an example, when the banana was picked might influence lectin content. Individual variations in mucus protection and nutrient also make it difficult to predict an individuals needs. But, basically the Deflect products will only work to the extent that enough of the nutrients in the Deflect products are available to bind the incoming lectins in the food. The best advice I can give you is experiment with the dose; however, it is likely that 1 capsule would be sufficient for the banana.

....if one is not eating any avoids at the meal that it is taken, is it too much of a good thing? I know it may sound silly, but just thought I would ask. 

Dr D'Adamo believes that for people with past heavy exposure to inappropriate lectins, the Deflect products can still be useful even when following an avoid-free diet.

Is Deflect needed if someone is 100% compliant and eating only HBs? In other words, is it meant to be used only if someone deviates from what they are supposed to be eating? What if someone has a food allergy or intolerance to something that is neutral or HB--would Deflect help in this situation?

If the sensitivities are the result of lectin damage to the intestinal tract then DEFLECT would be a good choice. The polysaccharides would also help with some of the healing in the gut from inflammatory changes to the tissues.

I took the home blood type test and tested for O (no surprise) a couple of months ago. I did not see instructions for determining whether I was an O negative or O positive. Did I miss a step? Shall I re-test?

The card also contains reagent for the rhesus (rh +/-) blood type system. If you had dropped blood onto each of the 4 circles and then compared against the diagram in the instructions, it would have showed you the rh as well as the ABO. It may have shown it on the card and you just did not realize the results were given in conjunction with your O blood type. That said, you probably do not need to retest since the rh + or rh- will not impact your dietary choices. Best of luck with the O diet and lifestyle.

Is Helix pomatia good for all Types? It is better for type A and AB as your article explained. Is it also good for Type O and Type B?

Under specific circumstances Dr D'Adamo uses it for all blood types; however, these circumstances fall outside the guidelines of what can be discussed legally with respect to supplements in the U.S.. As a dietary supplement, Dr D'Adamo's work suggests that is most useful for A's and AB's.

I read in the Continuing Education section that I should only steep green tea for about 30 seconds. Is this true of all green tea or just Mr Itaru's Special Blend? Also, can the same tea be reused for a second cup since all of its strength wasn't utilized?

This really should be the case for all green tea. Prolonged exposure to heat only seems to scald the tea leaves, oxidize the antioxidant polyphenols, and will leave you with a bitter cup of tea devoid of the rich green color (it usually turns yellow or light brownish). Remeber, a great deal of the antioxidant activity is reflected in the green pigment found in the cup after steeping. If this is gone, in all likelihood, so are some of the health benefits.

I read that tea in the products forum. I don't know about it because I don't know if they are individual bags or how much oz. in the products. I hope they divide two group one is individual bags and other stack in the products, you know. Many people prefer to individual bags as I do.  

Mr. Itaru's Green Tea (gen mai cha---brown rice tea) is only available as loose tea. We recognize that some people prefer teabags, but there is nothing we can do about the packaging since we are only the distributors. But I can tell you we feel extremely priveledged to be selected to distribute this green tea in the US. This particular tea is considered by some experts to be the best green tea available in Japan and can retail in Japan for equivalent of $50+ U.S. The bag contains 200 grams (equivalent to about .44 pounds or about 7 ounces). Dr D uses a coffee press to make the tea in the office (we go through alot since we all like it so much). I use a tea ball at home. The bag will last a long time, but it depends on how much loose green tea you use per serving. A little does go along way though, so remember this when you are making your tea. Also remember that the water should be warm-hot (not boiling) and leaves should be steeped for only about 30-45 seconds.

I have been taking O vitamins (2 3x a day) Probiotics, and have recently started taking the Herbals as well. Since I weight lift and do aerobics, I am interested in maintaining antioxidant levels throughout the day. Is it ok to divide the dose of the herbals into twice a day rather than one. I have been taking 1 in the morning and 1 in the early evening. I assume they don't stay in your system all day, so I thought this might be an appropriate use?

Yes, dividing the dose would be perfectly fine and maybe even slightly preferred.

Just a simple question. Of the type O multi vitamins you offer, how many do you take each day? I am 29 years old and am very active. I run, lift weights and hike. I want to make sure that I am getting the right vitamins for my lifestyle.

Dr D'Adamo generally recommends two twice daily for a person of average activity and health. Based upon the exercise demands you are placing on your body, you might be better served with additional nutrition. As such, the 6 per day advised on the bottle is probably more prudent.

I just want to say that since taking the Multi O's, Probiotics (6 a day), and ARA6 on a regular basis for about a month, I feel greeeat!!! I have been noticing for about a week now that I have more energy, sleep better, and my nervousness is waning. I have to contribute all this to these wonderful supplements because it is the only real change I have made in a while. I still have my problems, but after many years fo suffering, I can finally see that I am changing into a much healthier human being. My only real concern now is that I am still constipated, but I know in time hopefully this problem will resolve itself. By the way, I clean homes for a living so you see I really need my strength. I have a waiting list of people that need me because I specialize in environmentally safe and allergy free products and I am now considering taking on more jobs. I cry tears of joy when I think of how this diet and these products are helping me and others. I just want to thank all of you that are involved in bringing these products to the public. Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Thanks for this beautiful feedback. I hope your health continues to move in the direction you desire for many more decades.

Can ProBerry be used to fight off a cold? What dosage? Thank you

Elderberry does help the immune system to fend off viral infections (it is best known for its antagonist activity against influenza virus). Blueberry also has known anti-viral activities. So, this product will generally support better immune function when faced with a respiratory or flu virus. I would suggest a tablespoon 4-6 times daily for an adult. This product is safe and does seem to help our patients.

I often come down with a serious flu during flu season and would like to do everything I can to prevent it this season. Is the Proberry supplement effective for flu prevention or is it just intended for treatment once there is the onset of symptoms? Also, what would be a good minimum dose for prevention? Your article on this supplement does mention prevention but only recommends one dosage--2 tbs. 3-4 times per day. Is this the recommended dosage for prevention or for treatment? Would it be possible to take a lower daily dose for prevention as this dose seems costly.

1 tablespoon daily is sufficient (even 1-2 teaspoons is probably enough for most people). The dose listed would be if you had a flu.

How long will Proberry keep? Opened? Unopened?

There are no preservatives in Proberry, so it does not have a long shelf life and is very temperature sensitive. Under typical refrigerated conditions it will remain good for about 4-5 months. If left unrefrigerated for any extended periods of time, this shelf life will be reduced substantially. This will be true whether it is opened or unopened. So, for best shelf life, refrigerate immediately after receiving.

Was just wondering under what circumstances should a person take probiotics ?

I think everyone should take food cultured with probiotic bacteria on a consistent (if not daily basis). In my opinion, exposure to both probiotic bacteria and the alchemical changes these organisms render in food might be the single most important dietary intervention. Based on everything I know about supplements (and it is rather a lot), the only product I consuume without fail daily is a probiotic. So, rather than telling you under what circumstances individuals should consume probiotics; my perspective is actually the oppposite. There are NO circumstances (short of full blown AIDS) under which these types of products are not suitable and desirable.

Have you seen any adverse reactions to Probiotics(0)? I experienced incredible bloating after one day (one pill in morning and one in evening) I definitely have a general yeast problem and leaky gut and would very much like to heal this. I am also nervous of the kelp in the O Probiotics formula - would the A Probiotics formula work okay for an O? Kelp always seems to make my skin break out quite badly - would rather like to avoid that! Maybe all this bloating is due to shifting of intestine bacteria?

The reason you suggest for the intestinal bloating is quite possible (and more than a bit likely). Often this will normalize within a few days to a week. If it does not, then there is something in the product that is disagreeing with you. I have had almost uniformly positive feedback from my patients with the O probiotic. However, several kelp-sensitive individuals have had problems. This might be the case with you as well. I do not think Dr D'Adamo is an advocate of taking the A probiotic if you are an O. In the past, he has recommended against this.

I just purchased "Probiotic" for my husband, type O, with Fibromyalgia and who has at times, severe stomach problems...nausea, constipation, etc. We have both just gone on the diet; should he be on Probiotic? Sorry, but I'm really not familiar with nonsecretors...have no idea if he is one or not! Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I would say that the probiotic is very important if you are a non-secretor. Deflect also becomes more important for non-secretors since they do not create much if any lectin binding substances in their saliva or mucus secretions. Non-secretors can be a bit more prone to ulcers or problems with mucusal barrier, so DGL and Bladderwrack can in some circumstances be helpful additions. At some point Dr D'Adamo will create a product for non-secretors for additional support. It is already on the drawing board so to speak, but probably many months away from availability.

In order to take probiotics effectively, how far away from meals is necessary for the supplement to be beneficial? I tend to snack often, and I also take other supplements that are supposed to be on an empty stomach so it is difficult to manage taking each of these on an empty stomach. Also, would it be all right to take other supplements with the probiotic (e.g., tyrosine and quercitin, some vitamins) as long as no food is taken in order for each supplement to maintain its efficacy?

To be perfectly honest with you, taking the probiotics completely away from food or other supplements is probably not needed. In fact, often times friendly bacteria survive stomach acid and bile better when they are taken with a bit of food (hence part of the rationale of providing these products as live cultured foods). The folks at New Chapter consider it ideal to take the products a bit away from food (the idea being that you will stimulate less stomach acid then) and this might be the case. But the reality is that friendly bacteria have always been consumed as food with meals in traditional diets and they benefit peoples health in this manner. We advise our patients to take the probiotics whenever it is convenient. The last thing anyone needs is to add stress into their life by haviing to take things at all different times. Especially when there is no convincing scientific evidence to suggest that any substantial advantage exists by taking these products in isolation away from all other foods.

Do you advise beginning taking the probiotics slowly? I don't know what the recommended dosage is. By the way, it would be helpful to have a page or addendum where one could read the ingredients of the supplements, and also the recommended dosages.

You do not need to begin any more slowly than the recommended dose (1 twice daily), but can start with just 1 daily for 5-7 days if preferred. Very rarely a person will experience some transient digestive discomfort, gas, etc. when starting these products. This is a result of the turn over of GI bacteria and is not a cause for alarm. It will pass. The majority of persons who I have given these products to (and it is quite a few now in my practice) have had no unpleasant temporary side-effects.

I've read that probiotics that are kept refrigerated (such as the Natren brand) are more effective than probiotics that are not refrigerated. The live cultures lose potency faster when not refrigerated. Was this considered when the ER4YT probiotics were created? I'll be honest and say that between the two brands (I have used both), I can tell a difference and see more effective results (in regards to yeast and urinary tract health) with the Natren. I trust the ER4YT diet and will continue to consider the supplements, so I would appreciate your response.

For most probiotic supplements, the answer to your question is yes, they should be refrigerated. However, the D'Adamo Probiotic (and something called L. sporogenes) are exceptions. Most probiotics are centrifuged off of their growth medium. Because of this they are are considered to be in a condition that can best be described as "highly stressed". In effect this means that they are much less stable than they would be if they were still complexed with their growth media. I think of this in simple comfortable would I be if someone took me away from my home and removed all of my clothes and left me standing somewhere. Not very stable or comfortable would be my answer. Because of this, these type of probiotics absolutely have to be refrigerated or they would degrade incredibly fast and be absolutely useless.

Cultured food products on the other hand are a completely separate entity. Unlike the majority of probiotics found on the market, bacteria in cultured foods are very stable and are not considered to be under "high stress". Because of this the need for refrigeration goes way down. However, the need to keep them moisture free is paramount. With respect specifically to the D'Adamo probiotic: these products start with a certain count of active bacteria. This amount slowly declines with time (whether or not they are refrigerated), but the amount listed on the bottle is the amount that will be found at the expiration date on the bottle. If the product is refrigertaed before opening, the decline will be slightly (but not substantially less).

After opening the bottle, temperature is not as big a concern as moisture. Because of this, after the bottle is open, they should be left unrefrigerated. This is because every time you remove something from the refrigertaor, open it, reclose it, and re-refrigerate it; you create a situation where condensation (moisture) is very likely to be generated within the bottle. This is much worse for this product then temperature. So if you wish to refrigerate before opening that is fine, but after opening is not such a good idea. By the way, this same thing happens to all supplements if they are put in and out of refrigerators and is not good for most (IF ANY) of them. The other really important factor is that this product is cultured food and the other probiotic products are not. Why is this important? Cultured foods actually have a range of health benefits (and these are quite substantial) that simply giving the probiotic bacteria will not duplicate. In effect, the interaction of probiotic bacteria with food transforms food into a much more powerful health agent. So in my opinion (and I have looked at virtually every piece of research on probiotic bacteria and cultured foods), from a long-term health perspective, there is never any comparison between isolated bacteria and bacteria-rich cultured foods. Cultured foods provide so much more. This was the philosophy that drove the creation of these products, because cultured foods are relatively scarce in diets and as an option in health food stores.

I'd like to know how perishable the bars are. I'm buying them by the box and would like to stock up and save on shipping costs. Since they are whole food, wouldn't they be quite perishable? Or do the antioxidants take care of that? I do keep the box in the fridge (and have a hard time resisting those yummy O bars). Maybe I should store them in the freezer?

We've been told that the bars can last about one year without refrigeration.

I haven't seen an answer yet whether or not it is ok to freeze the bars. Are we reducing the nutritional value by doing so?

The primary area of nutritional change from freezing are decreases in water soluble vitamins like vitamin C. So fruits and vegetables definately loose nutritional value after freezing (1-8% with freezing and anywhere from 30-40% after 6 months in your freezer). Fats and proteins also can change slightly from freezing, but this is a very slight change when compared with vitamin loss. It is more an issue of potentially changing quality than quantities of these macronutrients and there is not even a lot of agreement on how much if at all quality changes. Herbs are often freeze-dried to eliminate moisture. This extends shelf life and reduces bacterial contamination issues. As for the bars, they are essentially designed as macronutrient bars (proteins, fats and carbohydrates) made from blood type friendly whole foods and herbs. They are not fruits and vegetables, and they do not contain much for water soluble vitamins to start with. So the generalized statement that freezing reduces nutritional value does not apply. In my opinion the answer to the question would be---freezing probably modestly will impact nutritional quality in the same way it might for frozen salmon versus fresh salmon. So yes, it is okay to freeze the bars, but probably a bit better to eat them unfrozen. If it is of any help, based on what I know, I would personally not lose sleep over freezing or not freezing them for my own use.

Hi, I am wondering what the protein to carbohydrate ratio is for the O bars? Thanks in advance your response.

O bars are 11 grams of carbohydrate to 15 grams of protein. SO the ratio is about 1:1.4. It is a great tasting bar to be this low in carbohydrates.

Do the Type O bars contain any dairy products?

The O bars contain NO dairy products.

The O bar has 80 mg of cholesterol (27% DV). This seems high to me. Can you comment on this?

First and foremost, Dr D'Adamo routinely finds O's following the O diet (which includes eggs) experience a decrease in cholesterol and an improvement in HDL (good cholesterol) resulting in a lower heart risk profile. The O bars have cholesterol because we use whole DHA rich (an essential fat) eggs as the protein source. It is a side effect of using a great food for the base of the bar instead of an isolated protein extracted from a food. A welcome side-effect though since eggs are actually a very healthy food. The yoke is high in lecithin, vitamins, minerals, good oils, etc. A large egg contains about 215 milligrams of cholesterol (about equal to 2 1/2 O bars). Based on what studies show (that 1-2 eggs per day has an insignificant impact on cholesterol levels) you would need to eat more than about 3-5 O bars a day to even begin to slightly effect your cholesterol levels. Eggs have gotten a bad rap as a forbidden food because of their cholesterol content. This bad rap is basically undeserved. You might say that the egg industry has a bad PR person because studies just don't show that they do much to cholesterol in the body. If eggs were so bad for you you would expect lots of studies showing this to be true. And if there were not lots of studies on this, we would expect lots of studies showing that they substantially raise cholesterol. The reality is that studies don't exist on either of these. What studies actually show is that most people can eat one or two eggs a day without changing their blood cholesterol levels. For example, two recent studies published in an American Heart Association journal showed that 20 healthy young men and 13 healthy young women with normal blood cholesterol levels were able to consume up to two eggs per day while on a low-fat diet without significantly raising their blood cholesterol levels. The outcome of these studies support results from several other studies published in the last decade, and suggests that an egg or two daily is fine for people with normal blood cholesterol levels.

Up to how many cups, & how often is it safe to take??? Would it be OK to take on an empty stomach?

The Sip Right Products are intended as teas (not as medicines). As such, no dosing information is provided on the can. It is assumed that people will use common sense in their consumption of these products. By implying that you are using them to treat your child, it limits my ability to provide you with any information (if I did I would be making a claim for this product). The Sip Right Teas are manufactured by The Republic of Tea and they are responsible for their distribution. NAP only functions as a retail outlet for this product. If you have questions regarding this product they would be more appropriately directed to The Republic of Tea (toll free:800. 298.4tea).
