I never used the amount specified. I had good results with 1 cap, probably used 1 AM/PM for most of the time I used it.@Veet. I've been looking at neuroprotek since seeing the videos from the doc.
I may not have typical mast cell but i sure do wonder if something is going on in my brain.
I noticed there are 2 types of neuroprotek. One is low phenol. Do you know the difference (sorry if I've asked you) and how do you know which to get? Is it one capsule per day?
Like you I try not to get combos but there is a specific reason he has all 3 things in it.
Just saw one cap per 44 lbs. yikes.
I don't think the phenols are usually a problem for adults...it's more for autistic kids as I remember. It's something to do with lacking the enzyme to break down phenols and I doubt you are deficient in that enzyme. The original product is more potent.So now I have to decide about the low phenol.
NeuroProtek LP® is formulated to maximize affects of flavonoids while also overcoming any absorption obstacles. NeuroProtek LP® is free of the following allergens: artificial colors or dyes, flavors or sweeteners, corn, eggs, fish, heavy metals, milk/casein, peanuts, preservatives, salt, shellfish, starch, sugar, tree nuts, wheat/gluten and yeast. Our ingredients are not obtained from beef or beef by-products. Luteolin (> 95% Pure) is a nutrient from a class of naturally occurring molecules known as bioflavonoids. Quercetin ( > 95% Pure)is a natural non-acidic flavanoid. Rutin (> 95% Pure) is a glycoside of the flavonoid Quercetin and is a non-acidic natural flavonoid that adds additional anti-oxidant qualities. Rutin helps liberate quercetin in the intestine, making absorption easier. Olive Kernel Oil (Unprocessed, MicroFiltered) is a natural, potent low-acidic anti-oxidant. This unique oil (a lipid) plays an important role in NeuroProtek® as it is used to increase the absorbability of flavonoids. While some results can be see immediately it may take 6 months before measurable results are observed .
I agree. Get the original, not the LP.I just found this @Remy So I'm thinking I need the original since it helps more with absorption.
NeuroProtek LP® is an unique all natural oral dietary supplement in a soft gel capsule containing lower amounts of Quercetin and Rutin, than the Original NeuroProtek formula, making it lower in phenols.
Phenols are literally everywhere. They are in most all plants. Yeast are happy to eat anything you provide them apparently...glucose, ketones, phenols. I would not worry about this at all. As long as you can break down the phenols by having the appropriate enzyme (which you do or you would be having phenol sensitivity reactions to everything) it is not a problem in my opinion.Wish this was cheaper
I just saw this on an autism board about this
I give it with No Phenol because it supposed to be very phenolic and it has stirred up yeast big time
So this could be a problem? Anyone?
Just a wee bit. But it's mostly gone now. It took a couple of weeks though and I tried to time taking the AH around when I would be OK with a nap.
I think it depends, just like with most drugs.I thought that ketotifen caused massive weight gain?? I skipped it for that reason... Interesting that the study above was w obese patients
I think it depends, just like with most drugs.
I think a lot of us with MECFS have metabolic problems that get attributed to drugs sometimes too. If you're in the weight gaining subset, everything short of water will probably contribute to weight gain unfortunately.
