Re: Serotonergic Psychedelics and Neuroplasticity

My understanding of the biology is that these drugs can induce neurogenesis, in part through an increase in BDNF. This is believed to be one of - maybe the primary - ways that SSRIs work. Different SSRIs raise BDNF to different degrees - in one study Zoloft was superior to other commonly-prescribed...

Re: Methylation: how to know you're on track

You may know this already, but I would want to stress getting sufficient B1, B2, Niacin (or NAD), magnesium and zinc.

Methylation: how to know you're on track

Hi everyone, What's the best way to figure out if someone is methylating properly? Is there anything other than testing homocysteine (and the usual candidates, such as folate and B12) that one can do? I'm also curious to hear from people who improved their methylation and noticed differences in thei...

Unwanted Metagenics Methyl Care

Would anyone like a 60-capsule container of Metagenics Methyl Care? It's a combined supplement for methylation support. I originally bought it because my functional doc recommended it, but I ended up deciding to use individual supplements instead (so that I could play around with dosage if needed). ...

Re: Aluminum as a causal factor of Alzheimer's - Introduction of myself to the community

Thanks for all the information in this thread. I have a question: are electric kettles completely out of the question? I am looking for a decent water-boiling device with an aluminum-free heating element. Happy to buy a stovetop kettle if needed. If anyone has suggestions, please let me know!
