Re: Vitamin A protects cognition in E4 carriers

Thanks for posting this. I have several of the SNPs that reduce beta carotene conversion, and I didn't know about them until I read this thread. I did a Vitamin A test as part of a Genova Diagnostics NutrEval panel a year ago, and it said I was borderline on Vitamin A at the time. I recently started...

Re: Non-stick pans

I have some carbon steel pans made by Matfer Bourgeat. You season them before using them the first time, and they are essentially nonstick thereafter. You can also use seasoned cast iron for nonstick cooking, but I am leery about iron absorption. Carbon steel is also known as black steel. These pans...

Re: Ketogenic Diet: Transitioning, Experiences, Reasons, Cautions ...

Just did Rhonda Patrick's new comprehensive genetic report. Found this genetic gem, which might help explain why I feel better with higher amounts of carbs in my diet. If anyone else feels worse on keto or just not getting the results you expect, there might be a genetic component. It's one gene wh...

Re: PEMT RS7946(T,T) Fast Results After Phosphatidylcholine Supplemention

I asked Chris Masterjohn if he recommended supplementing for the PEMT SNP, and here is his response: “I don't think this means you should supplement with choline. Rather, it means that you need similar amounts of choline as everyone else but if you don't meet them you are more likely to have problem...

Re: PEMT RS7946(T,T) Fast Results After Phosphatidylcholine Supplemention

PC will spare methyl groups because they are required to create PC from choline. So, my best guess is that you ended up with extra methyl groups and started pushing the SAMe path a bit too much. Try every other day, or a smaller dose. Always good to listen to your body. And just because you are het...

Re: PEMT RS7946(T,T) Fast Results After Phosphatidylcholine Supplemention

I am heterozygous for the PEMT rs7946. I started taking Country Life Phosphatidylcholine Complex. The first three days I felt great, seemed to be mentally alert, and slept well. The fourth day I had uncommon difficulty falling asleep. I tried searching for a connection between PC supplementation and...

The ingredients in Relaxmax are commonly used in formulations that promote relaxation. I have taken other similar products with good results.

Re: Coconut milk?

What is the latest thinking on coconut milk a la Thai-Kitchen, Aroy-D, Native Forest etc.? If you are going to consume canned coconut milk, you might want to consider buying Native Forest because they use BPA-free cans. Although Thai Kitchen is widely available, its cans are NOT BPA-free. Here's a ...

Re: would hsv vaccines make AD rare?

Zostavax is live, but Shingrix is dead. I did Zostavax several years ago when it was the only shingles vaccination available. People who have had Zostavax are encouraged to also do Shingrix; however, if you have the Shingrix vaccine, I don't know if it's necessary or advisable to also have Zostavax....
