Re: Statins: Are there natural forms of statins?

The relevent portion i am speaking of: Adverse effects of RYR include gastrointestinal effects and may cause myopathy, hepatotoxicity, rhabdomyolysis, and anaphylaxis similar to the use of statins [9,12]. The mycotoxin citrinin, found in poorly produced RYR products, can pose a health risk as it may...

Re: Statins: Are there natural forms of statins?

I have been doing a cursory search on statins. Whenever i find a list of foods that contain statins, the source is, well dubious (i.e. not scholarly) For example, a website called Healthline lists 4, but doesn't actually state they contain real statins: 1. Red yeast rice 2. Psyllium 3. Fenugreek 4....

Re: LSG Fisetin dosage

I have the same question re: dosage. If I want to replicate the phase 2 study amounts, and as a 200 lb person, I would need 2,000 mg for 2 consecutive days per month, which would be almost 27 pumps. Given the amount of gel in the pump, I'd almost use up the entire container in those 2 days. Am I mi...

Re: Alive by Nature Launches its Renue Line of Skin Care Products

I wonder how this stuff or something similar can do with scars.

On the skin, the big issue is keratin replacing collagen at the wound site.

Re: Statins: Are there natural forms of statins?

I didn't see indications that these foods contained statins, but rather that they shared some factor with a real statin. I think it is quite easy to get on Lipitor (Atorvastatin ) and it is very inexpensive. If your cholesterol and triglycerides were normal, you could take minimal doses and thus get...

It is probably going to benefit any older mammal to get complete blood transfusion from a younger source.

Re: Curcumin: The best anti-inflammatory?

Hmm. Looks like Curcumin and Boswellia may be good candidates. I am going to try them out together. So Curcumin is from Turmeric in curry and Boswellia is from the Frankincense plant, correct? I know curcumin acts as a senolytic. I have googled Boswellia and it hints it may be, or at least that is ...

Re: Is Niacin a NAD+ precursor, can it work with NMN?

I have heard occasional references to Vitamin B3, which I assume means Niacin, or nicotinic acid. Having once experienced the Niacin flush, it occurs to me that it can reach many receptors from head to toe. So I wonder, is Niacin itself a proven NAD+ precursor? Can it be used with NMN as an affecti...

Re: So are any of you fasting during this lockdown?

I haven't done much fasting lately. I gather from what i am reading that people are thinking that skipping a single meal may be the way to go about this so as not to stress our systems. I do walk outside and i am eating a healthy diet. I am also keeping mindful of my stress levels. I am noticing tha...
