POLYSORBATE 80

Polysorbate 80


Polysorbate 80 is called sorbitan monooleate and is an emulsifying agent and a chewing gum pasticizer. One research reported:
" A daily dose of 19.2 grams per kilogram of body weight for 2 days to a 4-month old baby caused no harm except loose stools."

That said, if it is in a supplement which you feel has been very helpful to your child, then continue using it. Actually, it is not legal but, again, if you want to continue because you feel it is helpful, continue. Hopefully, your child can soon decrease the supplements and then it will be gone.

Also from Elaine on prunes
You buy the prunes, cover them with water and cook until soft. Polysorbate 80 is in some dried prunes; others may not have it but do not worry about it; it is not one of the very bad emulsifiers.

This single book has been more informative than any doctor I've spoken with. The opening chapters outline underlying causes for these various illnesses and go into great detail. This gave me the tools to better approach my doctors and explain what was going on to family members.
