Re: Calcium Supplements

My D supplement is D3+K2. If I decide to take the Kmk7 your doctor recommends, should I then just get a Vit D supplement without K2? Wondering if both might be too much. Will check out the tea suggestion. Photobiomodulation? Hmmmm....I'll look into that and your others, too. You say "your doct...

Re: Question on statin and saturated fat

Hi Robin2038,

Optimal LDL is under 70, according to several lipid experts, including Dr. Thomas Dayspring.

I try to avoid as much saturated fat as possible and stick with fish/algae oil, extra virgin olive oil, avocado and avocado oil, and nuts.

Re: Hello All!

Happy to be here. I discovered I'm ApoE4 homozygous two years ago thru 23&me. I had embarked on a keto diet one year previous to that. I've transitioned to a Mediterranean keto diet which I believe to be best for both brain health and heart health. I took 40mg Atorvastatin for 12 years previous...

SusanJ, the study you mention does not apply to most of us, according to Allan Green. Here is his response to the study: "Microglial mTOR Activation Upregulates Trem2 and Enhances B-amyloid plaque clearance in the 5XFAD AD Model", Shi, 7 June 22. The 5XFAD mouse model has 5 defective genes...

Re: Plasmologens for Neuroregeneration

With respect, it is not Goodenowe's research confirmed. It is research by many who went before him confirmed . In fact he has suggested that supplements cannot work due to the fragility of the ethanolamine plasmalogen molecule within the stomach environment. (The workaround if that was correct is a...

Re: APOE-ε4 and brain iron (ferritin) levels paper

Thanks, BrianR. Does cerebrospinal fluid ferritin level match up with body ferritin levels? I read that a study of Restless Leg Syndrome with low body ferritin did correspond with low brain ferritin. But can we actually use body levels to predict? I am postmenopausal, my ferritin is about 34 and I h...
