View Full Version : raw agave nectar
April 3rd, 2006, 01:21 AM
I tried the Master Cleanse once before I became 100% raw, and it was a great experience. However, after being raw for several months, I decided to try it again. However, I became very sick--not due to detox. As a result, I had to break it. So I am wondering, if I would be doing any harm to myself if I tried raw agave nectar insted of maple syrup. Thank you, Michele

I am finishing day 10 and feeling fine. I used agave for the first 7 days because of it's very low GI. I ran out after 7 days and had to switch to maple syrup. I got mine from Young Living. I assume it was "raw" but no indication in the product name. I much preferred it to maple syrup because there was no maple taste and I could taste the lemon or lime juice which I preferred to the maple taste. In the absence of information indicating that agave is not good for this diet, I would use it again for the whole time. I think I had good results although this is my first time so I have no comparison except that the last few days were no different except for the maple taste.

I used raw agave as well my last time around since it has a low glycemic index and nice mild taste. I had good results with it.

I brought this up in this forum a while back and didn't hear anything back.
But I'm wondering what the nutritional content of Agave is? does anyone know?
If so, maybe you could post the link or copy/past the info.
I might use it this flush at leaast alternate with the maple as I am hypoglycemic.
