ATEoftheWeek_0216 Q: How much vitamin C is in Mangosteen?

A: Genesis PURE’s Mangosteen is good source of vitamin C and provides about 12 percent of RDA per 100 grams.

Q: What is the shelf life of Genesis PURE Mila?  Does each bag have an expiration date?

A: Although Mila lasts for a very long time due to its high level of antioxidant, it will eventually expire. Still, its expiration date is far past what any other grain or oil that is similar in composition and benefit to chia would be. An unopened bag of Mila actually has a very long shelf life, up to two years. Mila can actually last up to twice as long in the refrigerator as they do on the shelf. However, if you are consuming Mila on a regular basis, which is the most beneficial way to include it in your diet, you should not have to worry about it sitting in your refrigerator for very long.

Q: I am currently taking a medication that causes constipation.  I have always used Liquid Cleanse and Mila and both have helped greatly but since starting this medicine I feel that I need a little more help.  Do you have any suggestions of other products to take daily to stay regular?

A: Liquid Cleanse is intended for short-term use (7-10 day cycles) every few months. And, half an ounce of Mila contains a hefty 5.5 grams of fiber, important for supporting digestion and helping prevent constipation. We recommend you drink plenty of water, but most importantly, talk to your doctor if you are seeing a change in your health based on your use of prescription medicine. Genesis PURE products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
