****Warning this may be TMI***** Took prune juice before when feeling sluggish and bloated to get me Regular again. I have now developed a taste for prune juice and like a glass of it a day! Bar the obvious, is too much prune juice bad for u? Can it cause bowel/colon problems?

id say one glass a day would be ok - its not like you are drinking litres or the stuff in one go. i try and drink a glass of orange and mango juice every day to help keep me regular!

I imagine it is great for you. The western diet seriously lacks fibre and causes all manner of problems like simple constipation to bowel cancer. You are simply increasing your fibre everyday, i think its great u can drink the stuff- i hate it! Prob high in cals tho!

Is it a sugar free/unsweetened one? If not, most prune juices have roughly 42g of sugar per glass. Considering that no more than 40g is recommended in total per day, I would imagine that a glass per day, on top of any other sugars you're taking in, is too much.
