Hello everyone,

            I was just wondering if anyone used multiple seeds in one nutriblast.  Im told I need to incorporate, Chia, flax and hemp seeds into my diet. But im wondering if its ok to put all those seeds into one nutriblast serving.  Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

You can put a variety of seeds into your NutriBlast. I would try using a teaspoon of each and see how you like it. A point to consider is that if you are going to be drinking a Blast every day, variety is key. It may be good to use a different seed every day to give your body a chance to process and absorb all the different nutrients each seed has to offer.
Are orange seeds good for use in the Blast ?
I have heard that apple seeds are NOT good for your health. Is that true or should include them in the Blasts ?

You can leave them in, here is a prep chart for fruits and veggies: http://nutribulletblog.com/faq/peelingde-seeding/

You should avoid apple seeds as they contain cyanide.
{ have diverticulitis and I was wondering if the seeds blend enough to not bother me. I'm sure I still can't do berries but maybe flax and other seeds.

You should be able to. During flare ups there may be some foods that you should avoid or may irritate it, but in general, a high fiber, easily digestible NutriBlast is a good option. Most seeds Blast quite nicely, however sometimes there's small bits remaining. You may wish to mill the flax beforehand...however most research is steering toward allowing small seeds for those with diverticulitis. You may wish to stick to the milling during flare-ups though.
