Okay now can someone tell me how to properly use this and not all the hype included as the video shows . Is the nutribullet used as supplemental nutrition to your existing food intake .And Iam guessing with health issues such as heart conditions your on your own as far as what type of medications you take and what fruits or vegetables you can take . Such as blood pressure and blood thinning medicines.

I guess a lot of googling to find the correct answers . Asking a doctor could or could not work unless he wants to spend a tremendous amount of time .So who do you ask

Paultek6, great questions!! NutriBlasts can be used as a meal replacement or they can be used in addition to your regular meals as a snack. The main idea is to get more nutrient-dense foods into your diet. If you are not eating many fruits and veggies, then this could be considered a supplement to what you are already eating or if you are looking to see some health improvements, then you may wish to sub in a NutriBlast in place of some of the less healthy stuff you've been eating. There is a Transformational Plan outlined in the Natural Healing Foods book that helps you incorporate NutriBlasts into your diet. This plan recommends a NutriBlast in place of breakfast in Phase 1 and then in Phase 2, two NutriBlasts are recommended each day (at breakfast and lunch) in addition to a healthy recipe for dinner and snacks. In general it is up to you how you would like to incorporate NutriBlasts and what fits your lifestyle and health goals best. What is your goal? We recommend discussing any dietary changes, including the introduction of NutriBlasts, with your Dr. if you are taking any prescription medications. When consuming more fruits and vegetables, favorable outcomes such as reduced cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and improved sleep, among others, have been recorded. In this case, medication dosages would need to be adjusted. In addition, some foods may interact with certain medications (most notably grapefruit and citrus fruits) which might increase the potency of the drug and cause negative side effects. Vitamin K will negate the effects of blood thinners so these should be held consistent to match the dosage your Dr. prescribed. Also, Omega-3 fatty acids should be used cautiously by people who bruise easily, have a bleeding disorder, or take blood thinning medications including warfarin (Coumadin), clopidogrel (Plavix), or aspirin. Here is a good nutrient/drug interaction resource: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/he776 However, it is absolutely necessary to discuss specifics with the physician so that the advice is tailored to your specific situation. I'm sure a quick call to his/her office would do the trick. Also, I've noticed that pharmacists are great resources for this information. Ask yours about food/drug interactions. I hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns. Krista (aka NutriBullet RD)
