Sublingual vitamin D3

Has anybody tried sublingual vitamin D3?

Is there any reason to think that it might be more effective than oral vitamin D3? My vitamin D3 levels were recently tested and found to be at 32 ng/mL. I'd like to bump that up to around 45 ng/mL. However, I've had problems with D3 interfering with magnesium causing leg and foot cramps at night. I wonder if the sublingual form ...

Curcumin again... Theracurmin

Just did my quarterly bulk shop of herbs & nutrients, and found out about the new form called Theracurmin. Anyone have any experience with it?

It appears they have improved the bioavailability by grinding it down to a smaller particle size. There is a cou0pld of published articles on it, but my guess is that a close relationship exists either with the manufacturer or the person who originally designed this version of curcumin. However, nothing ...

nutrients vs toxins

When I had double vision it was caused by the root canals and amalgam fillings I had in my mouth. Once I had them removed the problem stopped. If you are interested in B12 you can get it from fermented foods and drinks. I get mine from sauerkraut and Kombucha tea. If you choose the supplements be aware of the other ingredients. It is best to get the vitamins and minerals from real organic fruits ...

Anyone got rid of light/heat sensitivity?


did anyone manage to decrease or get rid completely of their light/heat sensitivity with some natural approach/diet tricks? Summer is almost there and I already feel worse in these conditions. LDN and vit E helps a lot, but does not solve all.
