I agree w/ Jo. Many people do that but maybe not advisable for those with yeast/fungal or sugar metabolism issues. Do you like flavored iced teas?

Adding to the juice is fine...unless you're wanting to eliminate/greatly reduce intake of sugar (as Pirouette suggested)

But, it won't harm the herbs.

My personal opinion is to not add them to anything other than what Dr. Buhner recomends. He said pomegranate juice was okay and when he said this I knew he meant organic, no sugar added.

Orange juice has sugar. A smoothie has sugar.

I put my drops in a glass, added a splash of water and chugged. There were some herbs (can't remember which ones now) that I took at the end of my treatment, they made me give a shiver because the taste was yuckie, but hey... I did whatever it took to get well.

The green smoothie should be fine.

Buhner also says you can take them before your meals.. so even if you took them in pomegranate juice and then right after had your breakfast smoothie - they would be all mixed together in your stomach anyway.

PeteZa- Pomegranate juice has naturally occurring sugar like oj does

ETA - looks like Pomegranate juice is higher in sugar than orange juice!

I guess mixing them in something with sugar is better then nothing. I have spit out my last 2 attempts and have been skipping it because of the taste :/ it's the sida acuta, it's horrible.

You're not adding sugar...it's just the naturally occurring sugar in the fruits/veggies in the smoothie, right?

It looks like it's orange juice is less sugar than pomegranate juice anyway.

When you say alone - you mean in water, right? I put all my tinctures together in about 1/4 glass of water and drank it down all at once.

No wonder it's hard for you to take if you were just taking it straight. The alcohol is so strong!

They don't need to be in liquid, but they're easier to take that way IMO.

So, water, or juice...whatever you choose.
