My mother now, is suffering from a stroke. My mother's blood pressure, is already normal. But, my mother continued to drink melon juice, to lower blood pressure. In fact, in one day, my mother could drink melon juice 3 times. Besides my mother also drink carrot juice. Sometimes drink in the morning, and evening. In my opinion, my mother too much, consume juice. How do you think?

Just let it be then tell her that she will be the one who will feel the pain while you can't do anything about that and there is nothing u can do if she won't listen to you but at least with these words she will hear what u said. And maybe think about it when u are not by her side

Juice is good for the body if we just drink it without any sugar added and its good to have it in our daily drinks. But too much of it is not good as well. I believe that everything we do we need to do it moderately. You need to asked the doctor for better consultation.(^^)

I like drinking juices, too. Only that i don't drink that much of juices like Indah's mother. Because i am only interested to drink natural fruit juice. I don't like that commercially prepared fruit juice.

Hi Indah, do your mother have diabetics? If no, then it is alright to consume the fruit juice, provided that she only consume them once or twice per day. Besides that, she should also consume lots of plain water. If she only consume fruit juice alone, then it is not a healthy practice. Because our body need the plain water to helps cleanse out the toxic from our body. Let your mother knows that she will need to drink plenty of plain water as well, to balanced out her body fluid.

That's really too much types of juices which your mother had drank. Better asked her to drink more plain water as well.

hi, actually my parents also have a high blood pressure because of calories they have in their body,so every evening they both drink a pure pineapple juice that rich in vitamin C to lessen or reduce calories in their body to avoid stroke too and aside from that pineapple also good to make their immune system more healthy and to clean their intestine.

Yes. You are right. Pure juice is very good. But, that was the problem. My mother drank too much juice. I worry, too much drink juice, it will be bad for my mom. In addition, money spent to buy the fruit will be very much, while the state of our finances are in a very bad state.

A glass of juice - Fresh fruit juice is good for your health.
There is nothing wrong with drinking juice of melon, carrot and whatever healthy fruits and veggies you have. That is a very healthy indulgence. What is wrong is indulgence in fatty, sweets and junks. Drink fresh fruits juice and even vegetable juice is a very healthy so let your mother drink these juices and don't worry because this is good for her health.

Yes. You are right. Juice is good. But, I do not want my mother, drinking too much juice. In one day, my mother many times drank juice, and make my mother will not eat, because it is full with juice. Something good, if excessive, will be bad.

I am sorry about you mother's stroke.I remember when my grandfather had one,it was very rough.I am glad her blood pressure has gotten normal.If the juices helped her blood pressure level go down and as long as there are no other side effects then I would not worry about the amount of juice she is drinking.

Hi indahfth, I have heard that juicing everyday is great for our health. I am not sure if juicing 3 or more times a day is bad or good but if there are any doubts I think a call to her doctor would be the proper thing to do.. I just can not imagine fruits and veggies are bad for us unless there are some other issues......

I think if your mother's blood pressure is already normal, she should maintained it and dont drink too much juice because any too much foods will became bad to our body. I think you should ask her to drink only nthe right amount for the day and comsume some solid foods to help her body to regain strength from stroke. Also maybe she should drink milk it is good for the bones so that when she started to move his body part affected by stroke her bones not become brittle..

One should not consume one's diet if it goes beyond any comforability. One should master the habit of having diet like juice as because it sweeps away the cholesterol fibres piled inside the inside wall of veins or arteries making blood circulation smoth. Wish your mother come round soon.

If it is not processed and straight from the fruit it should be good for her. If it is made with extra sugar than it wouldn't be so much. Juices have a lot of vitamins and good liquid in them. It's better than drinking coffee or soda or otherwise. Carrot juice I think is one of the best things for you.

My mother, drink juice without added sugar. Juice is better than other drinks. But, if taken in excess, is that good?

Fruit juice are good for us because it's healthy as it contains vitamins, essential for our body. However, too much of a good thing can have reverse effects instead., If her juice is too concentrated, it will thicken her blood, affecting blood flow throughout body. She needs a mixture of water, plain drinking water on top of her juices. After all, our body needs at least 80% of water for us to survive, for organs to function properly.

Juice. That is a healthy drink because Juice is also a fruit. It is fine as long as it does not mixed any perservative and it came from natural, but there some juice that has mixed of perservative, so a person who always drinks this juice must also be careful.

Well, eat and drink fruits may you be stronger because they give minerals and vitamins,but if you consume in excess, for example fruits that has been lot of sugar and you have sugar problems go your body attempt to your life. So your mom has to take care with the ammount she drinks often. Have a nice day

Hi Indah! I am really happy to hear you mom getting better every day. I know its really hard moment right know. I hope you given a strength to overcome it every day. I personally think its OK to drink that's much as long you don't add any sugar in those juice. I personally prefer use juicer than blender because I can had only fruit water extract and I don't have to add any thing to made it taste good. Adding sugar can be a problem because your mom not as active as when she healthy and maybe to much sugar can lead to diabetic.

I think that too much juices can cause a problems as they contain sugar in the form of fructose. It eaten with the rest of the fruit, then this is OK as it is as nature intended. Here is a video that explains more about the problems that we face with excess sugar. Not an affiliate linke _Derek
