Omega-3 free FA lysinates?

I first heard of Omega-3s as free FAs (to be exact, FA lysinates) from Elysium Matter, but didn't take much attention since it's too expensive either way ($40/30 servings of 250mg DHA+EPA). Now Nootropics Depot sells it as a powder which would be relatively economical ($49.99/80 servings of 170mg DH...

Tranexamic Acid Improves Memory and Learning Abilities in Aging Mice

This is still very early research; I'm somewhat intrigued with it because the molecule in question (Tranexamic Acid) is considered OTC in many countries and is even labeled for such "minor" purposes such as melasma and is seen as (secondarily) an anti-inflammatory. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm....

My rather surprising PreCODE report.

I just got back my PreCODE report yesterday, and I'm puzzled with a few things out of it. ⋅ Homocysteine continues to be high (8.2uM), despite having been taking the kind of B6/12/folate combination for about 5 years. A/G ratio is fine (2.1) though. ⋅  Very low A1c (4.7%), but my...

Wife that hates leafy veg

Hello again and sorry for the half-year silence. Now we have settled in San Diego and got some time reading Dr. Bresden's book (the 2020 one specifically). Generally, I don't have too much of an issue with the current 12/3 diet, but I already found a big resistance in adopting it: my wife. Specifica...

Re: Interaction between Alcohol Consumption and Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) Genotype with Cognition in Middle-Aged Men

Higher alcohol consumption over the 30 year follow-up was associated with increased odds of hippocampal atrophy in a dose dependent fashion. While those consuming over 30 units a week were at the highest risk compared with abstainers (odds ratio 5.8, 95% confidence interval 1.8 to 18.6; P≤0.001), e...

Interaction between Alcohol Consumption and Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) Genotype with Cognition in Middle-Aged Men

I can't find a free version of this, but I think it's quite important for this question: is it fine for me to drink some wine or hard cider once a while? J Int Neuropsychol Soc. 2020 Jul 14;1-13. Interaction between Alcohol Consumption and Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) Genotype with Cognition in Middle-Ag...

Glucosamine: a mTOR inhibitor and autophagy activator?

In addition to this site, I also occasionally check how the bio-hackers are talking at Longecity. It is through there--and then some literature research--that I have the impression that glucosamine is a potential mTOR inhibitor and autophagy activator. Human cell cultures were used in all these pape...

Re: Sources of Aluminum in our daily lives, safer alternatives, words to look for on labels

There are so many toxins we are exposed to and it is challenging and sometimes difficult to try and avoid all of them. Aluminum is so serious that as you know it is one of my top priorities. I guess you and your household may have to have 2 water filters. Thanks for your interest in the information...

Re: Sources of Aluminum in our daily lives, safer alternatives, words to look for on labels

When choosing a water filter you need to first identify what is in the water that you want to remove. If you want to remove aluminum which is a cation (positively charged ion) you must use a cation exchange resin. Brita is a combination of cation exchange resin and activated carbon. My husband has ...
