  • If I drink other brands of berry concentrate like Ribena on a daily basis, or eat berries regularly, will they be too much for my body to handle? I’m concerned about the side effects of consuming too many berry-based products.

    Berries are known to be rich in anthocyanins and antioxidants, which are known to be beneficial to the body in numerous ways. When consumed in excess however, berries may result in gastric problems, especially for those with sensitive stomachs or those who have a medical history of gastric problems. As individual tolerances for gastric problems vary, we recommend for consumption after meals.

    As a general rule of thumb, always consume each food in moderation.

  • What is the difference between eating prunes, drinking prune juice or taking fiber supplements versus drinking BRAND’S® InnerShine® Prune Essence? What sort of added benefits does BRAND’S® InnerShine® Prune Essence offer me which is not found in plums or the dried version thereof, i.e.,prunes?

    Prunes are widely known to be a rich source of dietary fibre. A bottle of BRAND’S® InnerShine® Prune Essence provides 3g of fiber, which is equivalent to 2 large cucumber or 1.5 cups of raw cabbage1. 3g of fiber also amounts to 12%* of the body’s daily fibre needs.

    Not everybody enjoys the natural taste of plums or prunes, whether in their natural state, extracted or in a dried form. BRAND’S® InnerShine® Prune Essence is not only tasty, but comes in a convenient  format for your enjoyment. Moreover, it contains health promoting ingredients such as prebiotics (inulin and oilgofructose) and Vitamin C.

    *The American Dietetic Association recommends at least 25g of fiber daily. Last accessed in Apr 2010:
