Zinc/copper balance

Hi everyone,

I was taking a zinc supplement for some time until I noticed that my copper levels were getting on the low side. The zinc supplement was 15mg zinc picolinate daily, and I started adding 2mg copper picolinate daily, which I thought was the recommended amount for the 15mg zinc.

After I started doing this, my copper went up a little again (from 75 mcg/dL to somewhere in the 80's), but unfortunately my zinc ...

Oils?

Hello everyone,

I feel like this is a silly question. A lady at my work today has started selling natural oils. She gave me a web site to go to that told me what "oils" would be good for MS. On her website a bottle of Frankincense oil is almost $100. So I looked on Amazon.com and found the same types of oils on this website much cheaper. Has anyone here tried oils like peppermint, ...

Creatine plus CoQ10 for neuroprotection?

I found this article browsing. It doesn't study MS directly, but suggests that Creatine plus Coenzyme Q 10 give better neuroprotection in Parkinsons and Huntingdons than either do alone. I use both. I stumbled on the article while looking at Glutathione and thought I'd share.

Does anyone else use these?

Here is the abstract plus intro.

Fucoxanthin: anti-inflammatory seaweed extract

Lyndacarol has previously posted on fucoxanthin's metabolic influence but I didn't see anything here about its immunomodulating effects. Looks like it might be good for pwms. Has anyone tried it?

http://www.medicaldaily.com/articles/14 ... spread.htm

Researchers recently discovered that a chemical that is produced in the body when it metabolizes omega-3 fatty acids is a potent inhibitor of angiogenesis, or blood vessel growth. Tumors need massive amounts of nutrients to grow and spread, so they send out signals to the local area that encourage blood vessel growth that supply food to the growing tumor. ...
