Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

I eat oily-fish every day. I've done so for 2 to 3 years. I never use fish-oil supplements. (I also never consume Omega-6 industrial seed oils). My QUANT results: Omega-3 Index: 13.65% Omega-6:Omega-3 ratio: 2.2:1. All the SMASH oily-fish. (Often from cans). Not the bigger fish that may be contamin...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

Thanks for posting your results and what you did to get them. It will be interesting to see what your results are when you replace the Nordic Naturals with algal oil . What Algal oil will you be using? I'm ordering SR Vegan Omega-3. Two softgels provide 420 mg DHA and 210 mg EPA, which is lower tha...

Re: Zero carb diet will help prevent Alzheimer’s

I promised to come back to this thread and report results of a couple of dietary tests. As previously posted, I prefer to eat as close to vegan as possible for ethical and sustainability reasons. I understand the need for adequate consumption of choline and omega-3 fats, and I have no problem with c...

Re: Exercise and Ketosis

Possibly this is even where some of the benefit of exercise comes from, though I think most people DO eat before exercise, fearing low energy if they don't. Does this all seem unexpected... or obvious lol? Rhonda Patrick (Found My Fitness) has shared research that says you only burn fat when you ex...

Re: Finding the cure for dementia | 60 Minutes Australia (YouTube Video)

Very interesting --- well, the last ten minutes or so were most interesting to me. Concluding that may be tiny strokes that cause dementia, etc. Also info on blood pressure and impact. https://youtu.be/iEpTH70xRIs That was interesting. My understanding has been that vascular dementia (the micro-inf...

Re: Can Herpes Zoster ophthalmicus (Shingles) affect the Alzheimer's brain?

Does anybody know if Herpes Zoster ophthalmicus (or Shingles on and above the eye) affects the brain of Alzheimer's patients in a different way than normally? Britta This is anecdotal (n=2), but my mother and my mother-in-law (both APOE4 carriers) presented symptoms of dementia within days or weeks...

Re: When to take the supplements?

I have not been able to find in Bredesen's book a recipe of when to take each supplement (maybe there is, but I have not found it). Of course, melatonin is before sleeping. But what about the other pills? B12 / folate / D3 & K2 / ...? Does it matter when to take them? All at the same time? Sepa...

Re: Peter Attia #85 - Iñigo San Millán, Ph.D.: Mitochondria, exercise, and metabolic health

I did find this article Training Center: Why heart rate shouldn't be ignored which suggests that, once you've developed a lactate utilization profile and correlated it with heart rates, you can use heart rate as a proxy to define your zone. And you might also be able to use disciplined time trial t...

Re: Peter Attia #85 - Iñigo San Millán, Ph.D.: Mitochondria, exercise, and metabolic health

I'm going to modify my own exercise regimen around this Zone 2 conditioning framework. The explanations of how lactate works in the body (and its role in cancer) were superb. The discussion really connected a lot of metabolic pathways and concepts for me. I would also like to modify my exercise reg...
