Supplements that lower ApoB

Oui. C’est la meme chose, according to Memorial Sloan Kettering.

To be clear, I believe in “do no net harm”, not necessarily “do no harm” - which is a rather crude statement.

For example, excessive amounts of lead are proven harmful and almost always not worth a potential small benefit.

You may, of course, have a different view of what constitutes harm and what you may consider a potential benefit that justifies a known harm with a very high personal risk tolerance.

But I think in the example I highlighted most people would consider this type of harm not worthwhile assuming one is fully informed, especially with readily available alternatives.

We can agree to disagree, but I think you should really reconsider reviewing the situation and benefit vs risks with an independent third-party.

I do talk to medics about what I am doing. Not necessarily in precise detail. However, I have not discussed changing things like the levels of Lithium I take (initially 1mg, then 5mg now 5mg three times a week) because the maths is quite straight forward and I don’t think there is research materials that can improve on what I have found).

I purchased an ApoB blood test for $16 through Life Extension today. It’s on sale right for $21 and then I used discount code “NEWFIBER” to save an additional $5

Thanks for the tip. I just ordered and it will be interesting to compare the result with an APOB test I did a couple of years before starting rapa, even though there have been other changes, so hardly a controlled experiment.

I started taking Zetia a few weeks ago so I’m interested to see the effect it has had

I’m really impressed with Zetia. My ApoB went from 98 to 64 over the last few weeks.

In general, I favor drugs over supplements as the US supplement industry is not regulated and most of the supplements sold are by Asian vendors with a US front.

what is the reason you prefer candesartan over other ARBs (such as Losartan or Temisartan) for BP and Dementia protection? Peter Diamandis is on Losartan while Bill Faloon is on temisartan.

This is interesting. What is the mechanism connecting fiber with BP?

I would speculate it is the blood sugar blood pressure connection. Regulating blood sugar and insulin will potentially regulate blood pressure.

Makes sense. I’ve heard that low fiber / highly processed foods can lead to high blood sugar over time which leads to higher AGEs which, especially in insulin resistant people, leads to hardening of arteries which shows up as higher BP. In metabolically healthy people, the AGEs can be avoided better and cleared better (less accumulation).

Not 100% sure, better gut microbiome and lower glucose spikes? But it definitely works, and work well.
