Can I take ACAI PURE/COLOTOX while nursing?

Its supposed to be all natural but i did not know how a cleanser would affect baby-does anyone know for sure about this...?

  • Crash diets, fad diets, very quick weight loss and colon cleanses are *not* recommended because they may release stored environmental contaminants into your milk supply. (These contaminants, such as PCBs and pesticides, are stored in body fat.)

  • NO! do not take any weight loss medication/supplements while nursing.

  • If you eat it the baby eats it. Generally cleansers give you the runs, so I certinly wouldn't be taking that while nursing because it'll probably "cleanse" the babies system too and the baby sure doesn't need any sort of internal cleansing.

    but also call and ask a pharmacist they know more than most MDs on effects of meds

  • I would definatly find out from a dr before taking it. I know when I was nursing if I even took a fiber supplement my DS would have diarreha for a day or so. Just be careful.
