Re: Apoe 4/4 and high triglycerides

Hello all, I'm a 33 year old female living in the southern U.S. who just found out through 23andme that i'm Apoe 4/4. My entire life i've struggled with very high triglycerides, often over 1000. My highest triglyceride reading was 1600. I never imagined in a million years that this random genetic t...

Re: Google as Big Brother?

The same thing happened to Examine.com, a great resource with unbiased reviews on all sorts of supplements. Link to their Examine's article on being removed from search results: https://examine.com/nutrition/google-update-july-2019/ I've been pretty disappointed with how easily You Tube and other al...

Re: Need input into my lipids please

HI, I was told I'm a hyperabsorber and was told to try Plant Sterols/Stanols. But if I hyperabsorb doesn't that mean I have high levels of sterols? I'm confused. Do those work? Wouldn't Zetia be better? I've read stuff about Plant Sterols actually causing harm. Help! I've never dealt with sterols b...

Attia email: LDL-C, blood pressure, and CVD risk

Here's Peter Attia's latest email article. Very interesting read with regard to lowering LDL-C and blood pressure. It also ties in nicely with his interview with Francisco Gonzalez-Lima.

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...
