Audience member Gregory asks Dr. Oz, “What is lactic acid?”
Dr. Oz answers that when you have sugar in your cells, there is a cycle that breaks sugar down over time. Lactic acid is a waste product of the breakdown process. This breakdown process speeds-up during exercise, and Dr. Oz explains that sometimes the lactate is produced faster than the ability of the tissues to break it down and remove it, often causing muscular discomfort when it happens.
An audience member has an issue falling asleep, where she inexplicably breaks out of her sleep with her heart racing rapidly. She asks Dr. Oz what her sleep issue might be.
Dr. Oz responds that the audience member’s sleeping issue may be related to anxiety or stress, or in the worst case, a mitral valve prolapse (a valvular heart disease characterized by the displacement of an abnormally thickened mitral valve leaflet into the left atrium). Dr. Oz recommends the audience member take some tests if she is extremely worried, however, if it is stress-related, the issue should subside as she gets older.
Audience member Lorena doesn’t like vegetables and salads, but she does not mind blending them into a juice and wonders if it is ok to juice vegetables.
Dr. Oz recommends juicing vegetables, and he claims to do so every morning. Dr. Oz also recommends Lorena get her fiber intake by adding yogurt.
