Re: Protein for prevention of cognitive decline

Hi Julie and floramaria! Thanks, circ, for the detailed description of your sous vide set up! I appreciate your including the info about having to weigh down your floating silicone pouches. That gave me a laugh and if I decide to try this, I'm sure being pre-warned and learning from your experience...

Re: Protein for prevention of cognitive decline

From the 2010 paper I liked to above, they tested cooked foods from 2003 to 2008 using: Briefly, food samples were homogenized and dissolved in phosphate buffer saline and the supernatants tested for AGEs with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay [ELISA] based on a monoclonal anti-CML antibod y (4G9) (...

Re: Protein for prevention of cognitive decline

I should add that I don't know for certain that sous vide maintains low AGEs. It does cook with low heat over a longer period (but not as long as a crock pot unless you're cooking a huge piece of meat), but the food is sealed off from the water, so it's not the same as steaming or boiling. Would tha...

Re: Protein for prevention of cognitive decline

I'm intrigued and want to learn more about sous vide. I know you're not cooking in plastic; are you using silicone or glass instead? I found this Wellness Mama Sous Vide article helpful. Tell us more about how you are doing it. After reading this last night, I spent hour reading about sous vide coo...

Re: Zinc picolinate supplement timing

She prescribed digestive enzymes & betaine HCL with meals. Hi Tincup, Can you remind me which digestive enzymes you are taking? I could swear you mentioned it somewhere but I haven't been able to find it. I tried the HCL but I got the same reaction as years ago, a burning stomach, so I don't th...

Re: Protein for prevention of cognitive decline

After reading full text... Thanks for sharing your takeaways from that paper and including the chart Julie. I find it intriguing that women have more options that fall strictly left of the line than men. I was surprised to see canned tuna being beneficial (moreso for women) despite the mercury cont...

Re: Surgery, Anesthesia, & Aluminum

For what it's worth, the coated Fluido compact warmer used in the 2019 study on fluid-warmers leaching aluminum (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30793280/) was found to leach far less aluminum than the uncoated enFlow version they tested. Perhaps they can use a coated warmer, if not stainless steel...

Re: Surgery, Anesthesia, & Aluminum

I just did a quick search on what company Laurie might have been referencing & saw this from QinFlow, saying their units are aluminum-free: https://www.qinflow.com/ Thanks for finding this, CAngelS, as well as for the other thoughts. The one you found appears to be intended more for portable us...

Re: Surgery, Anesthesia, & Aluminum

THIS. :!: I want to use undignified words here, but WOW this. Thanks so much! I do have surgery coming up that requires general anesthesia. I'm going to talk to the surgeon about this, but he might not even know, so I may have to plumb the depths of the hospital's surgical supplies office to learn ...

Re: Protein for prevention of cognitive decline

Hi Circular, They mention advanced glycation end products: Plant-based protein foods had the lowest amounts of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), followed by poultry and fish, with processed meat containing the highest concentrations of AGEs among major protein sources (43). A low-AGE diet was...
