Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

Thanks for the book tip! I'm on it. It's unfortunate that we've bred much of the polyphenol content out of our foods (or "fertilize" them out as they grow). I read the ingredients list for the Vital Red. Oh my, they sure covered all the bases, didn't they? I happen to have bags of extracte...

Re: Dr. Steven Gundry with diet recommendations for ApoE4

I'm new. But it's easy to notice right away the different recommendations. Lower cholesterol and certain fats, or don't. Eat some meat, or don't. At first it seems contradictory. But I'm starting to understand that these are "personalized" recommendations to people with different genetics,...

Re: Low level light therapy

I'm sitting under my "daylight" lamp now. I have no idea if it helps with inflammation though. Started using it in December. Interesting idea though.

Re: New - what a great site!

I suspected as much. (Where is the sad face emoticon?) I'll have to learn to like almond butter I guess.

I might need to list all the various lifestyle changes that work and rank them so I can start at the top and focus in the "biggies".

Low HDL and niacin

I'm curious about the HDL levels and AD. And using niaspan slow-telease niacin (1g) to raise HDL. My HDL was 29 and is ~35 with niacin and a statin. I realize HDL levels aren't considered to be quite as important as they used to be. But that's still low. I think niacin can in theory help with SIRT f...

Re: New - what a great site!

Thanks everyone. So much to learn! I'm not sure I have any special expertise. Like everyone else, I read a lot and try to make sense of things as best I can.

So, yes, I worry about that. I'm a scientist, I love my work, and I really want to keep working as long as I can late in life. ...
