I suspect that the 300% RDI for proteine may because of the idea that 50 something grams of proteine daily is all that you need which seems like very bad advice

I've noticed in many vitamin C supplements that the ascorbic acid is "buffered" with some kind of mineral: eg, calcium, magnesium, sodium. Apparently this makes it easier to digest. If you take one of these supplements, say, calcium ascorbate,... (more)

Buffering does often include adding a mineral to regulate the pH of the final product. In most cases, magnesium is buffered with chlorine (MgCl2). Magnesium is an alkali, so in this case, buffering would add an 'acidic' to bring it to the same pH... (more)

Why did you go paleo/PHD? Sounds like the typical drastic change in diet causing problems. Our bodies aren't designed to change diets quickly. Add back your old food and adjust slowly, if you have a reason to.

Do you think a kombucha fast would be effective in repopulating the gut with healthy bacteria? I'm afraid of eating other foods while I do this because I don't want to feed the bad bacteria.

Two problems with this: one, if you want to establish those bacteria you have to send them down with some bacteria food. Potatoes or apples are probably a decent source.   Second, kombucha is bacteria and yeasts. There is no reason to get... (more)

Not very much.  We break down most of it since it's oxidized and can't make use of it.  The non-oxidized molecules are absorbed but they make almost no difference.  Our livers tightly control how much cholesterol is allowed to... (more)

More natural fats and fewer carbs may help balance things out.  Try it for a month and see how your cycle goes.
