Re: Introducting Verax, chapter one

A very warm welcome, Verax. I share your heightened concern about PD as it runs in my family. This is the first that I've learned about the REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) connection. Thank you for sharing. I've always been on the lookout for the "pill-rolling" behavior. Dr. Bredesen als...

Re: Hey Julie, I got the magic olive oil!

How wonderful, Anne! Did you get the Hojiblanca? It's quite bitter if you're not used to it. Out of curiosity, were you at the Berkley store? I was able to visit in person once and highly recommend it as a field trip to anyone in the area. They have a huge showroom with many EVOO varieties and the m...

Re: How much olive oil is too much?

I drone on and wake up to find I have been misunderstood. Hopefully, less than you think ;). Use our search engine to find that our previous discussions have taken a deep dive into the Mediterranean diet in general, The PREDIMED trial(s) and much more to generate a broad perspective. I'm not defend...

Re: Joe Rogan Experience #1108 - Peter Attia

Thanks, apod! Really interesting. Attia is a deep thinker who's careful not to overstate his case. I didn't listen, but instead skimmed the transcript. He talks about a little of everything. He dives pretty deeply into atherosclerosis and tackles the question of whether or not dyslipidemia without a...

Move over Ubiquinol

I'm considering switching my ubiquinol out for MitoQ after reading this press release. is anybody already taking it? Older adults who take an antioxidant that specifically targets mitochondria see age-related changes in blood vessels reverse by the equivalent of 15 to 20 years within six weeks, a ne...

Re: How much olive oil is too much?

I appreciate your skepticism, Verax. Nutritional science is complicated by so many confounders. I agree that we don't have proof that EVOO in any quantity protects our brains or hearts, but we do have some decent hints. As an E4 homozygote dealing with reduced cerebral glucose utilization, I chose t...

Re: Vitamin C may be protective for E4 women

TWBD, another EDS gal! Me too. For some unknown reason, we have a bunch here. I'm sorry to hear that you're positive for Type-4. It's much better to know than be surprised. You have an opportunity to have regular screenings and be proactive. I have two brothers who've had vascular incidents (perfora...

Re: Vitamin C may be protective for E4 women

Interesting. I've really flip-flopped on supplementing vitamin C, and I've always recalled Dr. Isaacson's book saying that vitamin E doesn't have good support for use in dementia prevention. Me too! I'm anti "supplemental" C at the moment because I've read it can exacerbate oxalate sensit...

Vitamin C may be protective for E4 women

This one is interesting. High levels of vitamin C appeared to protect against cognitive decline in women E4 carriers only. I don't have access to full text to learn more. Higher Blood Vitamin C Levels are Associated with Reduction of Apolipoprotein E E4-related Risks of Cognitive Decline in Women: T...
