Re: Diamine Oxidase (DAO) Supplements

Hello, I'm not Lara, however I just wanted to chime in and recommend you to try getting more DAO from natural sources. There's evidence that DAO supplements might be binding to your DNA cells and the other side effects are yet to be discovered. "Diamine oxidase is a Cu-containing enzyme which i...

Re: Fish Oil Fact vs Fiction

Hi! I don't think parasites are a concern for cod fish oil because it's usually pasteurized as far as I know.

Re: Iron supplement

A doctor (friend of my family) told me to take iron with juiced lemon on an empty stomach (a few hours after lunch or dinner). Vitamin C + acid boosts absorption, plus it soothes the way iron acts on your stomach.

Re: Hypothalamic amenorrhea and anemia. Low ferritin. Any connection?
