Ask Dr. Denise Lamothe Q&A's
Name: Juana

Dr. Lamothe,

The information in this web site advises against consuming Aspartame. Is Splenda a good alternate choice? My daughters and I have stopped drinking carbonated soft drinks and have been enjoying Crystal Light, but it contains Aspartame. What is a good beverage alternative?

HI Juana -- The very best beverage is pure, filtered water. If you want something sweeter, you can use an herb called stevia or maple syrup or honey. Also you can mix pure fruit juices with sparkling or plain water or make shakes by putting fruit and water or ice in a blender -- these are a few ideas. Hope they help.
Your daughters are lucky to have a mom who cares so beautifully about their health! Be well -- warmly,

Be well,
Dr. Denise Lamothe
