Acai fruit smoothies pack a nutritional punch

There's a Southern California company that distributes Acai berry pulp in the form of frozen smoothie packs, dried powder and bottled drinks. I've been using some of the Acai juice mixed with plain kiefer as an afternoon pick me up. It is incredibly delicious! I also found the frozen pulp that can be mixed with smoothies in the blender. The acai berry has a higher level of antioxidantsi than blueberries and also Omega fatty acids. It tastes like a cross between berries and chocolate. Just the thing to revive and refresh when strung out on a Flagyli pulse.

You can find who carries it near you if you search the web site under retailers.

Re: Vitamin D---Translator Needed

I just ran across this abstract< concerning vitamin D. I don't understand it, but I sense this might be worth understanding. Anyone who can translate this, please do:

B12 - benefits and methods of administration

B12 information

Through the research carried out by members we have collected the following information on the benefits, forms and methods of administration of Vitamin B12.

I looked up B12 patches

This useful page that Sarah compiled with information about what to get where lost its links in the upgrade, or at least it lost them on my browser. So here they are again in full.

will eight be enough?

...only time will tell as I get set to embark on my eighth pulse. It was a bit harrowing to get prepared for this pulse as my initial six month prescription for things had run out and I had to get them renewed. Either the pharmacy or the doctor's office messed up and it took a day longer to get them all renewed. I was a little worried there but it was for naught and I was quite relieved to pick up my prescriptions in time to start tomorrow.

Chrysin: Anti-inflammatory?

I have been doing a lot of reading about anti inflammatory substances and came across one I had not heard of before called Chrysin.

Here's some abstracts:

P23, P24, Niacin, and Circumin

I am finishing pulse 24-- one more Flagyli to go. Niacin">i and turmeric (herb containing circumin) are definitely kicking it up a notch. No, make that several notches. No real improvement in the gray skin around my eyes and on the backs of my hands; it still reflects my overall energy supply.

I know that I blogged my last pulse as relatively uneventful, but I am getting a longer view now. I have had to lie down twice today because of panted breathing, I can't get warm, the fasciculation is nearly continuous in my thighs, and I am paying the price for my extravagant energy use this morning. (I clipped our Corgi's toenails.)

I am trying to decide whether to back down on the niacin, the turmeric, or the Flagyl. Opinions?

NAC 600 mg veggie capsules

Dear Cpners: This is Chain Ganger.   Does anyone know how many 600 mg veggie capsules of NACi I should take a day?  I was diagnosed with CPN on Nov. 7 and NAC is the first recommended supplement I've taken.  At present I'm taking 1 capsule.  Thanks for answering my question

The Current Regimen (and rationale :-)

On waking: take all antibioticsi for the day.
Rational: As much as I would like to spread them over the course of the day, it becomes difficult to fit in the minerals and probiotics that need to be taken AWAY from them.
Negative: the PDR says it is OK to take them with food which is good because the doxyi makes me feel puke-y with water alone, although azith is OK with water. I take them with my giant cup of coffee which also contains about half a cup of milk – I know calcium is not good with the antibiotics but the PDR says it reduces the effectiveness just a bit . . . and I am small – 110 pounds only so I am thinking it is OK.
 
The supplementsi are all in one cupboard, each bottle marked with a label saying how many capsules and how often to take i.e. “Two x 2.”

Vitamin C Flush

Can someone give me a hint about where I find the supplement for the Vitamin C Flush which is suggested in the supplementsi section.

 

Can I just use buffered vitamin C or should I use something like energy enfusion??

Thanks

Dr. Duke's Phytochemical Data Base

Here's a great reference site for phytochemicals and their actions. Dr. James Duke is the author of the Green Pharmacy--a reference book for herbal medicine. I have used his book for many years to my benefit.

On this data base, you can look up herbal chemicals and their functions in the body.

Herbs and the Immune System

Here's an interesting site that relates various immunei functions to herbs.
The explaination of the different components of immune function is very easy to understand.

Suppressive effects of astaxanthin against rat endotoxin-induced uveitis

Here's a good reason to take some astaxanthin. Can be bought from online supplement sites.
A rich source is krill oil. It's that red stuff that makes flamingos pink! Beware if you have shellfish allergies--this one is not for you.

The link is to a study abstract on PubMed.

Tetracycline & B Vitamins

I have not read this before.

Antibioticsi, Tetracycline
Niacin">i should not be taken at the same time as the antibiotic tetracycline because it interferes with the absorption and effectiveness of this medication. Niacin either alone or in combination with other B vitamins should be taken at different times from tetracycline. (All vitamin B complex supplementsi act in this way and should therefore be taken at different times from tetracycline.)

http://www.umm.edu/altmed/ConsSupplements/VitaminB3Niacincs.html<

Is it true we should be avoiding B Vitamins around the same time?
