Herbal teas are not pseudo-drugs, they're actually very effective drugs for many ailments. Don't take my word for it, here's a lot of research for the most potent herbal tea, the Greek Mountain Tea, aka Sideritis:... (more)

This might be the case, since on Paleo we don't eat beans (not even traditionally-prepared). To me this became apparent via a proxy: I was craving for kale chips. For months! I'd go through bags of kale chips from Trader Joe's like they were... (more)

So, I've been a long time reader of paleohacks, but this is my first question, and I've got a long backstory, apologies in advance... I developed stomach problems in college after a bout with a parasite (dientamoeba I think) and plenty of... (more)

Although I think the other responses are great I just want to add a couple of suggestions of my own: 1) Good that you are off Prilosec. You might want to go on a low carb diet (<60 grams/day) to see if your GERD is caused by SIBO. If it is... (more)

When I first started paleo eating, I was convinced it would be the answer to my painful and annoying menstrual cramps. Much to my dismay, I have seen absolutely no improvement in this department after a year on the paleo diet. I’ve tried high dose... (more)

Magnesium and fish oil have been the answer for me. Now I am able to completely avoid 2 days worth of NSAIDS every month. They used to hurt my stomach and may have made my gut issues worse (I have fructose malabsorption). But it was not just any... (more)

Hello, guys. So, I'm on a LC diet, with around 65% fat, 25% protein, 10% carbs. I'm pretty happy with it, but I'm trying to address some of the deficiencies caused by not eating so much fruits/vegetables. These are the values of vitamins &... (more)

Considering thiamin's role in reducing the buildup of lactic acid, wouldn't this be a no-brainer supplement for athletes to improve performance and/or recovery? Is it commonly used and I've just missed the boat so... (more)

i've seen distance runners take beta-alanine and glucosamine. i haven't seen thiamine as a seperate supplement. perhaps because there's some 250% daily value in my multi-vutamin. i don't personally view a seperate b1 supplement as necessary. maybe... (more)

In particular, vitamin B1 (thiamine). I noticed on Cronometer that I get about 50% of the RDA for B1 (I know, RDA isn't necessarily important...). I was thinking of taking Jarrow B-Right which has 25mg of B1 (1667% of RDA). After reading the... (more)

Synthetic folic acid has a higher bioavailability than the natural form. But it must go through a four step conversion process to be equal. So it's not just absorption but also having the right form that matters. I doubt that with 1667% of RDA,... (more)

Sweet potatoes aren't a good source of thiamine if you cook them. Also some of the other sources listed may also contain thiaminase, which inactivates thiamine. Google is your friend. Also Google Scholar.

You need less vitamin E if you consume less linoleic acid. The Lyon Diet Heart Study (cancer write up) discusses this. See it here. People who eat more PUFA generally have lower serum vit E, despite consuming more dietary vit E. That's because... (more)
