Answer: This answer is culture dependent. In the US, women are discouraged from drinking alcohol at all while pregnant, but in France, it is encouraged that the pregnant woman drink one (1) glass of red wine a day.
Answer: Citric acid is not produced by the human body. However Citric acid is one of a series of compounds involved in the physiological oxidation of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates to carbon dioxide and wate, and this process occurs in the human body.
Answer: I have a good friend, where this intolerance runs in the family. For them it can be treated using L-Lysine. They take 1000Mg daily as a precaution for the many foods that have a little Citric acid added and extra 1000 or 2000Mg if they are exposed (e.g. drink orange juice). The best form of L-Lysine (working faster and needing less seems to be one with complementary vitamins and mineral to aid digestion. They report this works faster and requires a lesser dose. In Australia a firm calls BioOrganics makes one which has Lysine Hydrochloride 500mg, Zinc Amino Acid Chelate 5mg equiv. Zinc 1mg, Calcium Ascorbate dihydrate 55mg, Equiv. Vitamin C 45mg, Nicotinamide 50mg, Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate 10mg, Equiv. Magnesium 2mg, Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride) 10mg. This works very well. However pute L-Lysine works too - just not a fast. This treatment was found many years ago by a family friend and seems to work very well for them. This basically completely controls the symptoms.
Answer: The main way you would eat or drink phosphoric acid would be in soft drinks - primarily colas. A well-controlled clinical study using calcium-balance methods found no impact of carbonated soft drinks containing phosphoric acid on calcium excretion.The study compared the impact of water, milk, and various soft drinks (two with caffeine and two without; two with phosphoric acid and two with citric acid) on the calcium balance of 20- to 40-year-old women who customarily consumed ~3 or more cups (680 mL) of a carbonated soft drink per day. They found that, relative to water, only milk and the two caffeine-containing soft drinks increased urinary calcium, and that the calcium loss associated with the caffeinated soft drink consumption was about equal to that previously found for caffeine alone. Phosphoric acid without caffeine had no impact on urine calcium, nor did it augment the urinary calcium loss related to caffeine. Because studies have shown that the effect of caffeine is compensated for by reduced calcium losses later in the day. the study concluded that the net effect of carbonated beverages-including those with caffeine and phosphoric acid-is negligible, and that the skeletal effects of carbonated soft drink consumption are likely due primarily to milk displacement.
There is nothing inherently dangerous about the citric acid found in ordinary citrus drinks. However, as everyone is different, if you feel that there is a concern in your particular case, such as an allergy, than please contact your ob/gyn.
