Re: Niacin, the real story

Plus no-flush niacin seems to work differently in the human body when compared to standard flushing niacin accoding to the doctor.
And that flush goes away in one or two weeks, provided you keep taking the niacin.
When you stop and start again the flush will also be back for a short while.

Re: Niacin, the real story

That niacin rush or flush is just the capillaries in your skin having a thorough "bleed through", and according to the book this is actually a good thing, although the feeling itself isn't very pleasant (your skin can even get itchy for a while) The doctor also says that healthy people seem to exper...

Niacin, the real story

Just finished reading this book, and already have niacin (in powdered form) on order. Due to growing medication shortages the search for alternatives is growing, and besides many other health benefits niacin can completely replace statins, and this while being both safe & cheap. At least some of you...

Re: About grounding/earthing

I will go so far as to say that most supplements have no noticeable effect on me. However i've found a few exceptions over the years. In no particular order: Vitamin C in high dosages (5 to 10 grams a day) it's effect: just feeling better all round. Got the idea from the late professor Linus Pauling...

Re: About grounding/earthing

For arthritis and several other ailments you could look into bromelain, a natural compound extracted from pineapples. It has a multitude of uses, is extremely safe, and you don't need a prescription.

Re: About grounding/earthing

What you do is probably the best form of earthing, but in my part of the world (and in my specific case) that is not always an option. For me the jury is still out on the inflammation part, hopefully i notice something in the long run. Do you by any chance have arthritis (bone & ligaments) or osteo-...

Re: About grounding/earthing

Well, my wife wasn't too pleased with the bed linen getting a greenish hue within the week due to the all copper earthing material, so i had to think up a little different setup. For several weeks now we both use just a piece of non-copper multi-strand electrical wire. One end stripped for just a co...

Re: J&R Dodge Juste Judicato - double shear steel carving knife

The knife really is a delight to work with and it gets used at least several times a week for cutting various types of meat, as well as softer breads and large apple pies. It's kept sticky sharp freehand on a DMT red. Part of the ingredients for an old school beef stew: https://i.ibb.co/NS7skqs/GEDC...

This old Swibo i did a few years back, and it has quickly become the favorite bird & trout knife of a local Chef. The rigid blade is hand convex groun...
