Re: Supplement side effects

I have Osteoporosis and ApoE4 (heterozygote)... I have a 25% bone loss and was told recently to continue with calcium supplements by a specialized treatment group for Osteoporosis at Kaiser Permanente. However, they told me that I should try a "premium source" of calcium like Red Algae. I...

Re: Is it okay to have glucose spikes if I start cycling out of ketosis to have two higher carb days (or more) per week?

Hi,TheBrain, it seems that you and I are on the the same pathway, trying to balance providing food for healthy bacteria to support our gut health and trying to have a good level of ketosis for optimal brain health.

Re: An Accidental Study: Botox, Acetylcholine, & the Effects of 5 Mos CDP Choline Supplementation

Alas, I didn't, but I can run my data through again and pull them out. And indeed, I hope supplementation is helping you -- I hope the same for my mom. She's taking Cymbalta which, although considered "dementia-safe" is still mildly anticholinergic. It might be worth looking into CDP Chol...

Re: An Accidental Study: Botox, Acetylcholine, & the Effects of 5 Mos CDP Choline Supplementation

For background, I'm a 37 F, 3/4 with a 71 yo 3/4 mom who recently went into significant cognitive decline. Though I didn't buy Dr. Bredesen's book or begin a full lifestyle intervention until I saw how bad mom had gotten in Sept., just a few months earlier, I stumbled upon what I believe is an impo...
