Re: Methylation: Are We Supplementing Too Much?

apod, since you're wondering about methionine, Strategene looks at the parts of that pathway. It might help you fine tune your stack. The only caveat is what I said about choline. If you're not converting choline, the TMG will be necessary. I recently posted about that here https://www.apoe4.info/f...

Re: Methylation: Are We Supplementing Too Much?

Good advice Susan. Being a 677C/T hetero, I too have needed the addition of TMG, B12 2,000u/day, B6 100, and LMethyl Folate 1000mg I'm guessing that there are more SNPs or epigenetic factors to the story besides the usual suspects. Here's my Methylation panel, full of homozygous red blocks: mthfr.p...

Methylation: Are We Supplementing Too Much?

Re: Bill Sears on Bulletproof Radio

As I understand it, and please anyone correct me if I’m wrong because I am not an expert in this area, but as I understand it, every time you eat, your body is flooded with LPS – lipopolysaccharide, an endotoxin, which initiates a pro-inflammatory response. I would think if a person is trying to re...

Re: How to upregulate LDL receptor activity

Good podcast! I've been thinking about this issue a bit myself. (If I recall Masterjohn might be an E4?) For active & thin individuals he recommends more carbs in place of fats to raise insulin / thyroid hormones to increase LDL receptor activity and lower heart disease risk. On one hand, that m...

Re: A few more biomarkers if anyone is interested

Thanks for sharing apo. FWIW, I target Ferritin 50-100. As a meat eater, my Ferritin tends to climb over time. I had to donate blood once about five years ago and it has been under 100 ever since. In your mind, what is your optimal ferritin? Now that I am plant based, I keep an eye on ferritin for ...

Fun new project... The Desk Garden

I recently picked up a Rabbit Air HEPA filter. In taking this air filtration setup one step further, I've started piecing together a Standing Desk Garden to make the most of my sunny office window and put the empty back portion of my desk to use. :D "The NASA Clean Air Study has been led by the...

Re: A few more biomarkers if anyone is interested

Apod, have you ever had the CardioIQ/advanced lipid panel? I'm just asking if the TG rise might be correlated with LDL-P & smaller LDLs. For years, I had a great basic lipid panel, only to discover discordant values (low LDL/high LDL-P) & high lp(a) on the CardioIQ (Quest Lab). When I'm eat...
