Ive tried the mitoQ and i cant say i notice any difference other than it was costing me more.
I use vit e, nac, lipoic acid, and acetyl carnitine.
Hmm - I should have asked the question sooner. I ordered the MitoQ and it's way too expensive! Do you take lipoic acid on the 3-day cycles, following Andy Cutlers protocol? I try to take the lipoic but the 3- day 3-hour through-the-night is hard. I get headaches from it too - probably pulling toxins out. I've been trying to do the rounds more often, but I don't like getting up through the middle of the night. I bought an extended release ALA to take at night so I have to try that.
That's an interesting theory - so if you found a way to increase antioxidant levels you think it would reverse the cfs? So you must be looking for a way to stop oxidative stress also. I'm taking multiple antioxidants, but they're obviously not working. I've been taking a lot of sulforaphane from Swanson's since it's an Nrf2 activator, which activates your body's own antioxidant system, and it's cheap!
I take the ubiquinol 100 mg. every day also. I take NAC 3 X day. I just read that it breaks biofilms in the body - an interesting side-effect. I tried circumin too - I think I may be allergic to it, so stopped it for awhile. I read that it's poorly absorbed so I think you need some oil with it or something. I thought about trying the spice - adding it to stir-fries. I take resveratrol too - and yes, the costs add up. I may discontinue it after I finish the bottle I have - someone said it activates histamine. I just started the memantine - someone on here recommended it. I haven't noticed a difference yet, but I only took it a few days.
I recall Cort writing something on the micro biome, and I came across this article yesterday. I think it's good taking antioxidants, but knew there was something I was missing. Apparently the inflammation is coming from a damaged micro biome. I've been experimenting with different probiotic strains, but I must not have found the right ones. I wondered if anyone tried an SBO here. I'm a little afraid of them - I don't need to get worse - but I'm wondering if there might be safer probiotics, that have most of what is in a healthy human micro biome.
