Got a question, hope someone can answer... Nutrisystem diet programs.How can these programs affect either the digestive or excretory systems? Thanks for any comment. Another quick question... Thanks everyone! I'm so glad you're back on track and sharing your insights Cajundood! The test for 'C' is 100% if it shows negative - but prone to showing false positives (skared my wife once). The followup for her was negative as well - 'C' is pretty scary - so glad your's turned out negative!..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably know..

Max, I develop custom software using MS Visual Foxpro. My claim to fame is the ability to get data from a multitude of sources and combine and deliver it in a way that allows my clients to easily analyze where they are and to stay on top of their business - and very importantly to do it quickly. VFP is out of fashion but even I'm amazed at how much faster I can create flexible, robust applications...

You mean like herbal supplements or just regular micro/macronutrients?..

Yes.

More like - Can you really get Hoodia in a form that's as good as what the guys in Africa eat to curb hunger and thirst on a long march? For example - this is from an ad for a product I ordered:.

In the end - I trust this source - at least for now - I'll see and report if it really works for me. Just interested in your thoughts - It's really hard to seperate the wheat from the chaf (or was that Whey)?..

Tom,.

I have no familiarity with herbal supplements. These supplements are usually mixtures of natural botanicals, each of which may have a cornucopia of natural, individually bioactive compounds in them. Certainly, many (very many) of the FDA-approved drugs used today in "modern" medicine originated through evolution in plants to perform a variety of functions (predator resistance/avoidance, enhanced enery capture in the photosynthetic cascade, etc.), and in the pure form, have effects on human metabolic processes valuable in the treatment of diseases. Many of these drugs identified cannot be produced synthetically and human medicine still relies upon harvest from the wild or the natural sources produced on "farms"..

The modern medical paradigm (as opposed to Chinese herbal medicine which has worked for centuries) focuses upon using the purifed forms of these compounds and the resulting "drug" primarily due several factors: 1) FDA drug-approval protocols required in efficacy testing demands that the effects of the drug alone, and in it's pure form, is to be evaluated without the confounding effects (and side effects) of other compounds usually found in the natural product; 2) if the drug can be synthesized, modern manufacturing processes can forgo the costs involved with large-scale, agricultural production of the natural product; 3) the one-disease, one-pill paradigm; and 4) large drug companies can make billions of dollars by patenting these one-compound drug formulations leading to increased revenue. You can't patent naturally produced plants/compounds (although you can now patent transgenic animals and plants that can be genetically altered to produce these drugs on a scale large enough to be profitable (modern, genetically engineered human insulin is just one example)..

I am sure that many of these herbal supplements have use in the human condition...I just have no training in the field..

Max..

No whey!.

The Andeans chew coca for this..

Also, I fail to see how CITES certification of a product can be used to "verify" commercial sales of a listed species..

From Wiki - Hoodia is currently listed in Appendix II to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (.

CITES.

), which includes species not currently considered endangered but are at risk if trade is not controlled..

[4].

..Buyer Beware!..
