Re: Exercise and Ketosis

I've been keto-adapted for over 10 years. From May 2019 to around Dec, I intentionally ate 200 or more grams/day of carbs as starches. Only once or twice were my morning serum ketones a zero on the meter (usually after a 12 hour fast). Since I started this extended fast - hadn't done one for a year...

Re: Tulsi - ocimum sanctum - ameliorates memory loss in fish and rodents

Thank you, Fitfoodie for the links to tulsi! I'm a big fan of tulsi. I grow it in the spring to make fresh infusions and teas all summer and fall. I dehydrate enough to last through winter. It is one of my favorite plant allies. That's really cool that you grow it and that you've noticed it's posit...

Tulsi - ocimum sanctum - ameliorates memory loss in fish and rodents

A friend recommended this supplement for stress. I found a tea with it that I enjoy, which also has turmeric. There's a tulsi, turmeric, ginger version too. I thought people might be interested in this. https://shop.organicindiausa.com/Tulsi-Turmeric-Rooibos/p/OIN-514885&c=OrganicIndia@Infusions...

Re: 10-ingredients that could cause Alzheimer’s

It seems like the research is mixed and may be gender dependent on soy/tofu. As a fan of fermentation, though, I'm not surprised that tempeh is all thumbs-up. Fermentation produces several beneficial compounds with antioxidant properties. Here's a summary of research about soy and tofu https://www.h...

Re: Exercise and Ketosis

Ketone measurements are interesting as, depending on what you are measuring, you have storage (generally beta hydroxybuterate in the serum), production by the liver and usage by the body. Exercise, low carb diets, medium chain triglycerides (especially caprylic acid, C-8) and fasting can increase p...

Exercise and Ketosis

A friend gave me some Ketostix (urine test strips) and I've been having fun doing little tests. I work out a lot and have always preferred to do so on an empty stomach so I don't get burpy or cramps. I've suspected I get into ketosis after morning workouts but never had proof. Turns out sometimes I ...

Re: Trying to understand the Brain Blood Barrier

Thanks for replying, Brian. I had seen that research. I guess it's a pretty good idea to get as much DHA in phospholipid form as I can whether through food or supplements. I suppose also in the ideal scenario, Singulair is repairing my brain blood barrier a bit and allowing some of the other DHA thr...

Trying to understand the Brain Blood Barrier

I started frequenting this board because I have high HDL and LDL cholesterol (but good ratio and good triglycerides) and my mother has late-onset Alzheimer's. I figure I have one copy of the apoe4 gene, because of the above details, and because two of my three kids also have high cholesterol despite...

Re: study on fermented dairy --> lower inflammatory markers

Floramaria, Thank you for the biomarker info. This will give me something to discuss with my doctor. At my age and "external" fitness level, it can be hard to get a doctor to see the reason for worry. If he spent any significant time in a memory care unit, I think he might see the urgency ...
