Re: Best baby formula and why for babies that can't breast feed?

Thanks, I wouldn’t have thought of European brands. Can they be found in US stores or just online? It is difficult to find a legit distributor as the product isn't approved for import into the US. The first website I found was a total racket. You had to pay a monthly fee and then that allowed you t...

Re: Gundry internet ads

For the general population, I don’t think it’s the big, bad monster it’s been portrayed to be, but because of studies that show that’s not entirely true for ε4s, I go the conservative route and moderate my saturated fat intake: no cheese, no meat except fish and only small portions of that, and bas...

Re: Intermittent fasting, coffee, autophagy

Thank you SoCalGuy. I stopped being concerned about this. What I'm doing is working. Most notably is that my cognition and mood are consistent throughout the day. When I ran on carbs, if I did not eat within half an our of awakening, I melted down. I had to have a meal every 5 to 6 hours or melt. A...

Re: Best baby formula and why for babies that can't breast feed?

My wife was never able to produce enough milk so she had to supplement for both of our kids. I didn't want my son consuming soy so I ended up buying German formula. I'm glad those days are behind us as that was quite the hassle. My nephew had a problem with milk and he ended up drinking ripple milk....

Re: Intermittent fasting, coffee, autophagy

From one of the first articles to come up: "Altogether, these results indicate that coffee triggers 2 phenomena that are also induced by nutrient depletion, namely a reduction of protein acetylation coupled to an increase in autophagy. We speculate that polyphenols contained in coffee promote ...

Re: Get your probiotics from...apples?

I'm always fascinated when reading about the research done around the microbiome, especially because I tend to not tolerate probiotics very well. We know our ancient ancestors were not drinking kombucha or taking probiotics. And studies are showing that supplements do not have the same effects as w...

Re: What fish oil / DHA brand do you use?

I was out reading a bit last night online about DHA and the role it plays with APOE4. I came across a fairly recent article (http://ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6338661/) that Rhonda Patrick submitted. She states in the abstract: "APOE4 carriers respond well to the DHA present in fish but ...

Re: Higher phosphatidylcholine protects against dementia

Thanks for sharing the link Julie! I evidently require the equivalence of 5 egg yolks per day. I typically get 1-2 but I do eat salmon, meat, fish, almonds and take phosphatidylcholine in supplement form. I started using phosphatidylcholine when I cut out egg yolk consumption just to make sure I'm g...

Re: Not interested in a keto diet

You guys are the best. Seriously, thank you so much. <3 I normally try to stay away from health forums as they can become very negative and anxiety-provoking incredibly fast, but the number of positive and reassuring attitudes here is astounding. I've never seen this type of message board where peo...

Re: I guess I'll be taking a statin

I agree completely on taking a coronary artery calcium scan. Overall your basic cholesterol numbers don't look bad at all. If your CAC score is zero then you have no plaque build up at all and I would resist taking a statin. There are some other things you can look at but a CAC is easy, cheap and gi...
