Re: Not all Omega 3's are the same...?

It tends to work best in sushi. I agree it is very difficult to eat on it's own. I get some periodically from a local health store and I take it like medicine, a spoonful that I down as quickly as possible.

Re: APOE 3/4 - Gundry Protocol - Elevated LDL-P and APO-B

I just came across this paper shared by Ivor Cummins who has done a lot of great work in the lipid space as far as being a skeptic of the cholesterol hypothesis for CVD. The paper focuses on using Apo B/Apo A1 ratio as being a very strong predictor of CVD. He mentioned something similar on the LIvin...

Re: DHA supplement versus eating fish

I always buy the Season sardines in olive oil since they are often on sale. I buy them by the case when they are on sale. I'd imagine the olive oil isn't very good quality so I rinse the olive oil off before eating them in my salads. I've also been leery of the quality of added olive oil in canned ...

Re: APOE 3/4 - Gundry Protocol - Elevated LDL-P and APO-B

One more followup as I just got my APO B results back. APO B dropped by 50% and is now in the optimal range. So APO B is fully under control at 66 mg/dl. LDL-P is in the low 1200 range. My doc wanted to bump up Crestor from 5mg to 10mg because my LDL-C is 83 mg/dl and she wants it below 70 mg/dl. I ...

Re: DHA supplement versus eating fish

Anyone else eating mackerel and/or sardines regularly? Lots of Wild Planet sardines in water. One of my favorite fast meals when I'm quite hungry but have to get going: I put sardines on a plate with a bunch of avocado. I drizzle good olive oil on the sardines and salt them, then I splash balsamic ...

Re: Non-stick pans

Funny enough Dr Gundry just released a new video on this topic. His go to is stainless steel but he said ceramic and enamel coated are OK.

Re: Sweets

The one sweet I see Gundry and Valter Longo recommend is dark chocolate. They generally prefer 70% cocoa content or greater and Longo recommends chocolate with no added sugar. Granted it won't be sugary sweet and will be quite bitter but it does contain polyphenols so there is some potential benefit...
