2011 Meta-Analysis - Latitude and MS

Latitude is significantly associated with the prevalence of multiple sclerosis: a meta-analysis
http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/early/2011/ ... 0432.short

Anyone tried BrainSustain?

Wondering if anyone has tried Xymogen NeuroActives BrainSustain? I recently decided to go to a nutritionist to work with me about some of my theories of my MS being a biochemical process gone wrong. My approach is to try and deal with each of my theories (infection, BBB, Lipids, hormonal etc) and rule them each out as a cause so that in the end I am normal again. 8O ...

Comparative absorption of curcumin formulations

The purpose of this study was the comparative measurement of the increases in levels of curcuminoids (curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin) and the metabolite tetrahydrocurcumin after oral administration of three different curcumin formulations in comparison ...

Nature Neuroscience (2014) doi:10.1038/nn.3850

zinc and copper

bit confused about taking zinc and copper. First can they be taken together? and should they be taken separately if possible? I ask because lots of supplements combine them yet i thought they compete with each other. Are they synergestic taken together? I see this board recommend 50/2 but most of the information on the net says 10:1 combo. Any clarification, thanks.

The effects of omega-3 Fatty acids on matrix metalloproteinase-9 production and cell migration in human immune cells: implications for multiple sclerosis.
Autoimmune Dis. 2011;2011:134592.

    In multiple sclerosis (MS), compromised blood-brain barrier (BBB) integrity contributes to inflammatory T cell migration into the central nervous system. Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) is associated with BBB disruption and subsequent T cell migration into the CNS. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on ...
